Food not great to begin with and have had some issues with cross contamination and lack of server knowledge. Online menus have errors both in what is available and what allergens foods contain, but in dining hall usually okay. Have raised concerns with dietitian, but change happens slow and it's unclear whether it's going anywhere even when they say they'll improve things. That being said, they connected me with the chefs at a dining hall to improve the situation and have some pretty cool housing accommodations options. Dining halls have a lack of variety, especially with any dietary restrictions. It's really not great and I almost gave them a D but didn't because of the helpfulness of the chefs and amazing options at one campus market.
We don't have nearly as many places as I expected, but the ones we do have are really really good. My favorite place is Mariposa Baking Company. Some other places include Jules Thin Crust Pizza, Sliver Pizzeria, Racha's Cafe, Berkeley Thai House, Toss Noodle Bar, and Platano.
