Five is New American cuisine, with contemporary style. <br />An original downtown Berkeley gathering spot, where you can experience great diversity of people, food, wine, and spirits in a striking, yet familiar setting. <br />

"We have been to Five several times in the last several years. Over that time they have improved. The service is now good, the menu has a reasonable number of choices, the food is good, if not outstanding, and the dining room has an interesting decor. While tables are not pushed up one another, so you have a chance to converse with others in your party, there is a lively bar scene until 7:30 or so, which an interfere with one's conversation. FIVE is worth a try."

The main dining room, decorated with French antiques, exudes quiet, inviting grace and opens onto a large greenhouse filled with plants and fresh flowers. This airy room's elegantly casual ambience is the perfect complement to the more formal dining room. <br /><br />The private dining rooms offer banquet facilities for business groups with free wi-fi, as well as social events such as weddings, birthdays, and rehersal dinners. The kitchen offers a menu borrowed from French country style recipes that are classical yet light in calories. Suberbly rich desserts include a delectable soufflé and signature crème brulée. <br />
