Reviews for Chez Panisse

I celebrated my birthday today in this great restaurant. Well we enjoyed a delightful evening and the place was undoubtedly the reason for that happy event. The waiters cooperated in a very nice style, the cuisine was very good and my friends were extremely pleased. We shall absolutely visit again for more celebrations. thanks very much.

I love this restaurant. It's so hard to get in, because it's so popular. I got my aunt to take me, and I'm so glad she did. The food tastes very fresh and the flavors taste so much better because they use only the most local and fresh ingredients.

For most of the 1980s, used to watch Alice Waters on television and longed to visit her pioneering restaurant. But fear of flying kept me from hopping on a plane until 2003. Planning a trip to visit friends in Hawai'i, decided to spend a few days in San Francisco with a side trip to Chez Panisse. It was now or never. I went alone. I'm accustomed to dining alone, becoming comfortable with it while traveling around the South Island of New Zealand in 1975. Solo dining, full review
