Understanding Julia’s

With a room and building with such a beautiful, rich history, lets peek in and learn a little more about this special place.

The room sure is stunning with its high ceilings and shiny (original) floors…

Did you know that the ceilings are concrete, but designed to look like wood?

Thank you Julia Morgan for your architectural and (sturdy) mastery!

The fireplace sure looks inviting, but rest assured in our dry California atmosphere that we are not starting any roaring fires.

Candles are usually lit to set a warm, engaging space…

Rave reviews tend to come in frequently for the floral arrangements adoring each table and the large one in the center.

Not only does our center table hold flowers, but all the essentials we need to pamper you during your meal – extra plates, silverware and water are ready and waiting.

A step back in time

Before Julia’s became a favorite fine dining restaurant in Berkeley, it served as the Dining Room, exclusive to Berkeley City Club Members.

When the building opened in 1930, until 1962, when men joined, women enjoyed the space while they feasted on favorites prepared in the Club’s Kitchen


The Dining Room – Circa 1936

The original tables and chairs are still pieces of furniture present today.

The Dining Room – Circa 1972

The beautiful doors and stunning mirror are still part of our current repertoire.


The Dining Room – Circa 1982

The natural light that the room provides also highlights the room with ease.

How beautiful is this space?

Think of all the memories the room has seen in our decades of existence.
