Reviews for Chez Panisse

This is 100% a five-star restaurant, in a normal world, pre co-vid. Unfortunately, during Co-VID their curbside pick up compared to what I have had in other times, wasn't up to par. Being a restaurant with such a reputation, I expected much more. I pre-ordered my Muffuletta Sandwich at $18 a couple days before the pickup date. I felt like the sandwich was overpriced for what we got. In comparison to when they had their dine-in filet Mignon for 29$ with greens, bread, & full review

Always a special treat for lunch. Impeccable food and friendly professional service. A real California culinary institution. Don't despair if you can't get an advance reservation, I've had good luck calling for lunch on the "day of", and gotten right in. A real gem.

This review is long overdue. I've been to Chez Panisse 3 times. 2 solo, the 3rd with colleagues which was the last group dinner before COVID. Right now the restaurant is closed and has been offering CSA boxes and other pantry items. You order every Friday at noon (link on Chez Panisse's Instagram) and pick up Sunday 12-3 pm. The boxes are sourced from the farmers and vendors the restaurant orders from. For $40 you get a generous bounty of salads, berries, onions, potatoes, full review
