I eat here often. Love the Crayfish Etouffee w/ grits. Miss the Oyster poorboy, hope it returns. The waiters are very good, but the reception desk people have too much attitude. The recorded music is always good.

I didn't have a reservation on a busy Friday night and was in a bit of a rush, so I ordered carry-out. I got voodoo shrimp, hush puppies, and beignets. The food was awesome: great flavors, really good ingredients, perfectly fluffy beignets. The host was...also very nice. I was a bit indecisive and he was super patient. And the food was ready right when predicted. It's a bit pricey, but incredibly high quality, so I look forward to eating here again next time I'm in town.More

Centrally located restaurant in downtown Berkeley. Crawfish etouffe was delicious, but uncharacteristically dry - normally one can dip their bread in it, but the dish we got had no soup. Friendly and welcoming service.

Outside dining here. Order at the entrance, then pick up your food in cardboard boxes. Somehow appropriate for this down-home food, if home were Louisiana. Wanting to try several things, the three of us ordered two jambalayas and one order of ribs, plus a side...of brussel sprouts and grits with shrimp. Took home enough for another dinner and possible lunch. Jambalaya was fantastic, loaded with extras and extremely flavorful. Ribs were delicious, and the sprouts were the best ever. Only thing we thought was ordinary was the grits with shrimp creole. Would definitely come back if in the area again.More

Angelines serves traditional Cajun/Creole dishes. We had lunch takeout and all of the dishes were excellent. It’s COVID era and they have outdoor dining but not recommended at lunch as the sun is directly above. Recommend the Jambalaya and the shrimp Creole.

I visited the restaurant March 2020. The food was great: The salad very well prepared and the shrimp were delicious. I ordered a beer and it never arrive to my table, and the shrimps arrived while I was still eating the salad, so i have...to left the salad and start eating the shrimps, I do not like them cold. But since the food was very good I highly recommend the place. Perhaps was a bad day, with respect the service. Price is quite reasonable. Go and try.More

We were told it would be an approx 35 minute wait, but were seated in approx 10 minutes. The restaurant was packed the entire time we were there, with a waiting line. The food was excellent and the server was friendly and efficient. The restaurant...is very nicely decorated as one might imagine an old time restaurant in New Orleans would appear.More

A small group of us were in town for a conference and found this gem. Wonderful ambiance, spot on service and super food. The oyster sandwich was delicious, the salads were wonderful and the Mac n cheese was to die for. So creamy and cheesy!...Also the fried chicken was devoured as was the bread pudding. If you are in the area go.More

This is simply a great restaurant, start to finish.We came in on a pouring down rain Sunday acouple of weeks before Christmas, around noon. Wonderful aromas, and alligator above the bar was wearing a Santa Claus hat.We were seated quickly at a comfortable table, and...our waiter was affable and quite knowledgable about the menu. I had an excellent Jambalaya with chicken and andouille and tasso ham that had a bit of heat, and my wife had buttermilk fried chicken with cream gravy, sweet potato mash and green beans. She pronounced the chicken to be top notch, and being from Texas she is pretty fussy about fried chicken. One of our friends had perfectly fried catfish with Southern potato salad and hush puppies- delicioius, and our other friend, for reasons known only to him, had a green salad. All of the food was (insert superlative of your choice here). They also have a small selection of New Orleans beers, particularly Abita. When we first looked at the menu, we were eyeing the desserts (bread pudding, pecan pie, pot de creme...) but could not possibly have even split just one 4 ways by the end of the meal. Prices are quite reasonable for a classy restaurant with great food- with 2 exceptions all entrees are under $20. There were many other tempting entrees on the menu, so we will try to get back to Berkeley befroe too long to try some more.More

I don't give out a lot of 5 stars. Had a meeting in the area and ran across Angeline's. Some quick research told me it was worth it and without question it was. All 3 of us were thrilled with our food. I had etouffee...which was outstanding. My colleagues each had a different traditional meal as well and all were extremely pleased. We were just past the lunch crowd but my guess is that Angeline's does more evening business anyway. Service was good and quick. Prices were high but it's Berkeley. Hope to go back.More

My grandson and I chose this restaurant before a Cal football game and were pleasantly surprised. We were seated immediately without a reservation even though there was a large crowd. Our waitress was very friendly and explained some of the items on the menu to...us. My grandson chose the shrimp Po Boy sandwich which he enjoyed and I had the BBQ shrimp dish on rice with beans. As a starter we had hush puppies which were among the best I have ever had. We definitely will return!More

When I visited it was a week-day and there was no need for a reservation. Week-ends may well be different.
