Seeking Lovely Restaurant That's Good for Conversation

jessinEC | Sep 5, 201810:16 PM     4

Hi. My Dad is coming to Berkeley for his 80th birthday. We'll be a party of 9, including some kids, a vegetarian and someone who's lactose-intolerant. I'm looking for a lovely restaurant that seems special without being snooty and has delicious food. It also needs to be a place where you can actually hold a conversation and hear the person across the table from you. Does such a place exist? If Venus still offered dinner, that would be my choice. Any suggestions? Thank you!
