The staff at Zut knows how to make guests feel welcome. David sat us at the bar while we waited for our table and generously brought us a complimentary beverage. We ordered the garlic fries while waiting and they were delicious, with big chunks of garlic. Once we were seated, Aurianne was our very knowledgeable waitress went out of her... More

The decor and atmosphere of Zut is beautiful. Indoor and outdoor seating options, weather permitting. Service was attentive. Food however, while pretty, was disappointing. No bread was served or offered. Salad nicoise interpretation of tuna salad appetizer was bland. Artichoke appetizer was very salty. The pizza with eggplant and sirachi sauce tasted like plain pizza with spicy sauce, nothing special.... More

I made a reservation and met a friend for brunch on a Sunday. It was too noisy to converse and the table that looked like a nice one by the window was about 6 inches from the next table. The waitress stood between our tables to speak to the two folks sitting there and her body was in my face.... More

Dropped in on a Wednesday evening...first time and a great choice! Was served one of the best Manhattans, ever, thanks to Calvin! Service was attentive, food delicious. We will plan our next Fourth Street Berkeley shopping trip around dinner at Zut!

Zut Tavern continuous to amaze. Their pork belly/scallops appetizer was superb. Huge service with a terrific salad on the plate...easy to share. The superb margarita and red wine also helped. Can't rave enough about the Spanish Octopus with a white bean and cheroso sauce. Again, huge serving. My wife had the UT burger, superbly prepared with avocado and fries. Could... More

When I lived in Berkeley, Fourth Street was one of my favorite hang-outs .As a visitor, I just had to return to see what was new, and what had survived during the two years since I last visited. Was most happy to see that Betty's Ocean Side Diner and The Gardener were still there. I was not surprised to see... More

A great location on 4th street. We've been here several times and always enjoy the combination of people watching, good food and wonderful service.

Parking may be a problem but the menu, the food, the service and the atmosphere is terrific. We were lucky and found a spot on the street right in front but it was on the third pass!! The seared tuna nicoise salad was really good as was the avocado BLT. We sat inside but it has a nice outdoor area... More

Three of us had a nice lunch here yesterday. The BLT, salad nicoise, and grilled veggie sandwich were all very good. The service was a bit slow and the prices were fairly high. Not sure that we will go back.
