Four of us dined there Sunday evening. Waitress was very pleasant and efficient and we were excited about revisiting our favorite menu from years past. We all enjoyed the simple green salad with cherry tomatoes in lemon viniagrette. Three of us ordered the roast duck which we used to eat there regularly 20 years ago. While the skin was nice...

I eat there 2-3 times a week. You can get an honest and good meal for a reasonable price; some of the Greek and East European dishes are especially nice. The wine is fine and the place is relaxed. One of my favorites for lunch is the calamari salad and I split an appetizer of spanicopita with my friend -... More

My visit was actually in September 2012, but the "when did you visit?" field only goes back 12 months. That said, this was my first time here. I arrived early and about the same time as one of my friends. The bartender took care of two of us as we waited for the rest of our group. When everyone arrived... More

Britt-Marie's is a real Berkeley restaurant (even though it's in Albany). You can dress up or not. They have a nice old-world atmosphere and consistently good food. It's been here for many years without going away or changing much, and I find that comforting. Prices are reasonable. I especially like the topinka, the goat cheese tart, and the pork chop... More

The menu seldom changes very much at Britt Maries. That is a plus if you get a hankering for Hungarian Goulash or Spanakopia, etc. The atmosphere is "neighborhood" with an integrated bar and restaurant. It's a good choice for a cold night.

It isn't haute cuisine, but it doesn't claim to be. Some very well made dinner specials and the lunch menu is better than decent. The service is better at night and the portions are generous. There are much worse on Solano ave.
