French restaurants in Berkeley / Oakland area?

Robert Lauriston | Nov 12, 2011 11:57 AM

A friend who moved to Berkeley recently was asking about hardcore French restaurants in the area. All I could come up with were Liaison, Rendez-Vous, Chez Simone, Nizza, and La Note. Also La Bedaine for takeout.

Am I forgetting anything? There are lots of Cal-whatever places with some French touches, such as BayWolf, À Côté, Rivoli, and Gregoire, and depending on the night you might get a very French meal downstairs at Chez Panisse.
