Our servers get props for being knowledgeable and attentive.

Our food is unique and the wine list superb.

But, you don’t need to hear it only from us – take a peek at some of the love diners are sharing about us on social media.

Awesome classy restaurant with fresh, delicious food and rich history! Spend time exploring the grounds as they are superb! ~Sarah, via Yelp

Friendly staff and excellent food. Would definitely recommend for any occasion. ~via Open Table

Having eaten at numerous places in Berkeley over the past years, this was the first time here. The setting was outstanding as would be expected of anything done by Julia Morgan. The waitress was very helpful, courteous, knowledgeable and pleasant. The food was excellent, and we will return. ~via Open Table

Book on Open Table or call us to make your reservations at 510.280.1547.

Menu items are subject to availability, so come on in to see what Chef Alaun and his team have up their coat sleeves!

Julia’s receives nod for “Best Service”

The word is getting out that Chef Alaun’s cuisine is some of the very best and people are sashaying in to try it out.  Julia’s was a hit with our Prix Fixe Lunch and Dinner menus for Berkeley Restaurant Week and of course, Valentine’s Day diners earlier this month.

Reviews on Open Table say it loud and proud that Julia’s is the new best-kept secret of Berkeley.

“Besides the fresh and beautifully presented menu items it was a pleasure to take a friend from London to this very special location. The restaurant is in the very room where my parents wedding reception was held in 1938. Berkeley certainly needs and deserves an elegant and refined eating establishment and this is it.”

I love to read reviews like the one above, especially ones where the diners are appreciative to the history of our building (did you know that the ceilings pictured below are made to look like wood, but are actually concrete?).  Such rave reviews gave us the accolades to be a Diners’ Choice Award Winner for “Best Service” on Open Table.

Now, that’s cause for celebration!  Cheers!

Julia’s receives positive accolades via “The Weekly Yelp”

It’s like “dining in a European chateau,” says Audie B. There are “fresh flowers everywhere, and beautiful places to visit,” like the library and “gorgeous indoor pool.” But don’t let these classy Berkeley City Club digs deter you from a casual cocktail! Julia’s Lounge is mixology central from 4:30pm–8pm Tuesday through Saturday.

Come by and see us at Julia’s and experience what everyone is raving about. Make your reservation on Open Table or by calling us at 510.280.1547.
