They've got a different menu each month, which keeps me coming back. It's gourmet fusion food, and most of the menu items look interesting. Try coming here for lunch and trying their sandwiches. There're benches and tables right outside the place, but there's not much room to sit and eat when there are other people waiting for their food. The food is worth me taking the mile long walk here.

We live about 45 minutes away but we'll make any excuses to go to Berkeley just to eat at Gregoire's. The food is so unbelievably divine - albeit the fact that it's a take-out joint. I love any of their meat dishes AND the crispy potato puffs!!! Haven't tried the dessert yet because I'm usually very full after indulging with their entrees/sides. :)

Two words- potato puffs. The potato puffs are simply amazing, crispy on the outside and warm on the inside served with a flavorful dipping sauce. Gregoire is best for take-out, but they do have limited outdoor seating. Gregoire is great for people who want french food without having to dine at a fancier french restaurant and pay outrageous prices for small portions. The lunch and dinner menu is different, and the menu changes monthly to reflect seasonal ingredients which is nice as far as variety but frustrating if you grow attached to a particular menu item. Fair prices for french food, though high for simple take-out. However, quality ingredients and well worth the price.

My friend took me here on my trip to Berkeley and they have the most amazing potato puffs. I'm craving some just thinking about it. Even though that's all I tried, it's definitely worth going back for.

Pros: food, price

Cons: literally no seating available

.

I've been to both the Berkeley and Piedmont locations and the food is consistently fantastic. This is a great place for foodies who feel like taking some good food home or just want to sit in a casual place to eat (if you can get a seat). The portions are very good and I've never had a bad dish here. Lunch is clearly the best value/most bang for your buck, but dinners are great too. The food is comparable to a very good restaurant, but you can have your own wine and save on the 15% service tip.

Pros: Food, Friendly service, Takeout or eat in

Cons: Parking

My top candidate for most overpriced & worst value for your dollar. The food is nothing to write home about, and many people are simply romanced by the presence, personability, and accent of the owner. Each visit I made, I left feeling gouged despite the fact that their potato puffs are good. But not good enough for a gastronomic wet dream. So what, it's a high-falutin picnic! Next...

last year during Valentine's Day, my boyfriend and i got takeout from Gregoire's. we didn't have to worry about reservations or crowds. the food is as good as any gourmet restaurant (try the potato gratin). portions are good, especially since it's hearty food. the main entrees all come with veges on the side. the nice thing is that Gregoire is there and talks to customers so you actually get to see who's cooking your food, a true rarity these days. the monthly menu's online so you can call ahead to avoid a wait. go home, pop the cork on a bottle of wine, and enjoy a nice meal.

I've been there twice & will definitely go back for more. I went on a calm weekday and had the pleasure of talking to Gregoire and his staff. The man is as wonderful as his cooking! I simply must go back and find out where he gets his bacon. I had pork tenderloins seared with bacon and it was juicy, tender, and flavored with just the right amount of seasoning.

Oh! Berkeley's best kept little secret. Sooooo good it should be illegal!!!! The menu changes monthly but they always have potato puffs. You must, I mean must, get the potato puffs. When you eat your first ever potato puff, you know that you then can die in peace. Plus, Gregoire is one of the most delightful men I have ever met. He has this super thick French accent that only makes him ever more charming! Dinner is expensive but lunch is affordable.

this tiny place is my favorite restaurant in the East Bay since I started dining there in October 2002. warm and intimate, you can sit on the stools inside and watch the cooking action, or on picnic benches outside and be served right through the windows of the kitchen. or take your goodies home. wherever you eat, the food is delicious and sophisticated, yet simple. always surprising, amazing combinations (a favorite was the truffled potato gratin - or as my sister called it, "trufflatoes".) we've mostly visited at lunchtime, when you get scrumptious gourmet meals at incredible prices. (and you get $.50 off if you save your container and present it at your next meal!) portions are definitely big enough to share. gregoire himself is very warm and friendly and makes you feel like you're sitting in his kitchen at home. there's something for everyone's taste.

The delicious aroma of Gregoire permeated out of its open window next to the grill and as I passed by this charming and small take-out restaurant...I had to try it. I ordered the lambchops with asparagus while my boyfriend had some sort of beef rib dish...can't really remember...followed by warm crispy apple desserts..I was very pleased with my meal. The meat was so tender and juicy and the veggies with the buttery sauce complimented the meal...Very different from usual places that add a lot of extra salt and seasoning, thereby masking the real flavor of the meat..in my case, the lamb. Portions were just right for me....not too big to make me feel sick afterwards...All in all, definitely a place you should try! =)

While not so concerned with nasty Telegraph-oversizing or low-cal, unsatisfying imitations, Gregoire's food stabs at the American heart with a Normandine dagger full of flavor and satisfaction. It may not be as largely portioned as other lunch-time haunts, but the smaller sizes persuade you for more fat and gusto (which won't kill you). The crispy smoked duck pocket, while more of an Asian fusion dish than pure Normandy cuisine, is intoxicating (in a good way!). What really grows addictive, however, are the potato puffs served every month: creamy, salty dollops of mashed potato, deep-fried into crispy nuggets with liquidy centers! Get them--you won't be let down. The price is well worth it, and after licking your lips at the meal's finish, you're convinced it's not at all as expensive as the Gourmet Ghetto may imply. As a take-out restaurant, Gregoire surpassed my expectations.
