La Sen Bistro

La Sen Bistro is an offshoot of Berkeley's La Rose Bistro. After many years of serving to loyal customers of theater go-ers and the nearby UC Berkeley patrons, La Rose Bistro transplanted itself to downtown Concord to become La Sen Bistro.

With the same vision of serving great food, you will enjoy the classic California-French samples of duck confit, salmon in saffron sauce, lamb racks, and escargot - just to name a few. Our great food was recognized by the Michelin Guide in 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 as well as the Zagat survey. Come join us at La Sen Bistro for a glass of wine and a taste of California-French cuisine.


Cheers to good food and great companies. Bon Appetit!

"That's really all there is to say about it. It's all authentic French to the last detail - the meat has the fat it should have, the Crème Brulee is heated with a flame thrower device, the steak is served with great pommes frites but no veggies. We loved it. Stayed for a looooong time and really enjoyed it! Another great find at Todos Santos Plaza!"

"We've been to La Sen several times with consistent results. The food is always excellent. We've had most items on the menu and are constantly amazed how great the food is.
Usually, the service has been subpar in one respect only. Always friendly and helpful, but slow. Which is fine if you're ready to take 2 hours for a meal. This last time we went had much quicker, more attentive service. We didn't have to wait for water or other items. It was a perfect timing and match for our expectation of a nice romantic meal.
I can't wait to go again."

"Our early-ish 6:30 reservation for two on a Friday evening was honored and we were seated immediately. We had absolutely no issues with the service that others have complained about (thanks Mandy!). Our meals consisted of Caesar Salad, Seared Scallops on a bed of mashed turnip, grilled Lamb Sirloin (med-rare) small green salad and frites. Everything was very good and the service was attentive. With a bottle of decent red wine, the tab was $98.00 plus tip - not bad at all! This was our second time here and both have been wonderful."

"Enjoyed night out with wife at this cozy French Bistro. The server was very knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations. We had lamb chops and beef burguignon entrees very tasty. Only wish was that they had full bar instead of wine and beer only. Overall we enjoyed our meal and will be back."

"Great intimate location in the heart of Concord. Service was terrific, comparable to a 5 star, more upscale restaurant. The food was well prepared and delicious all the way to the desert. (Note I gave 4 stars merely because I reserve 5 for the very best of the best). I definitely recommend."

"I can't believe this restaurant has been here for 3 years. I just found out about it and I am so happy for this rare find. We had a bottle of wonderful wine. I had the mushroom truffle soup to start and it was to die for. My husband had the roquefort salad and he loved it. I had the Coq Au Vin and it was absolutely wonderful. My husband had one of the specials which was Lamb chops and he said they were excellent. I kept seeing them go by. Everyone was ordering them. Excellent restaurant. We will definitely go back."

"This restaurant is unique in Concord- and if you want very good French food in a quiet intimate setting without taking out a second mortgage, this is a great option in the central CCCounty area. Small but nice. One waiter in the evening; it's not fast food.
Wine list is small but fair prices.

"It was so good that we came back for another dinner in 2 days and was not disappointed. We had duck breast that was juicy and perfectly cook. Lamb chop was as good as last time and we loved it. The portion size and side dishes were so plentiful that we have no room for dessert. Excellent value for French food with appropriate asian touch (I think). They sell cook books that appeared to over every thing on the menu."

"Service is friendly but not up to professional standard expected in this type of restaurant. Soup was lukewarm and salad overdressed (slick oil after taste). Surf and turf entrée items all tasted like Roquefort cheese. Scallops would taste better if P.E.I. and not chewy. Crème brulee was scrambled and less than half filled in dish. Please use spell check before printing menus. Good efforts but not up to par for a $60 pre fixe dinner. Decent neighborhood restaurant that can be much better by paying attention to detail (server training, misspellings, food) and spending a little more on better quality ingredients. It was a holiday but it wasn't busy when we dined at 5:30pm."

"My husband and I had dinner here on New Year's Day, and it was wonderful. Great fixed price menu, and the service was impeccable. If there are only two of you, ask for the table in the alcove at the very back of the restaurant. Very romantic and away from it all pretty much. Whatever you do, don't miss this wonderful restaurant in downtown Concord."

"I read about La Sen in Diablo magazine. Just wish it were closer to where I lived! Every meal I've had has been exquisite. Everyone I introduce to La Sen loves it as much as I do. I eat here at least once/month, and have never been let down. Their service is a bit slow, but worth every bite once you get the meal."

"This is one of the only really fine French restaurants in the East Bay. It is intimate, service is good, and the food is excellent. We've dined here before but this was our first New Year's Eve experience. The prix fixe menu was packed with elegant choices. Our reservation time was honored, and the wait staff was very friendly and polite."

"This was my sixth or seventh visit to La Sen and the food has been consistently excellent. As it should be with a French restaurant, the sauces are wonderful and there is enough bread to get every drop. My favorite is the Duck Confit, but the scallops, mussels, and salmon are also very good. My only criticism is that there could be another server: our waiter had a lot to cover and did his best. The wines are excellent and affordable, either by the bottle or the glass."
