    I was surprised how small the lunch crowd was this week, although it is the end of August. My two guests had the Macadamia-crusted Snapper, the go-to dish here, and loved it. My grilled chicken salad was excellent. Hope they're not losing business to the other opportunities on PGA Boulevard, maybe they need to market more aggressively.

    While Cafe Chardonnay has been local for years, I have only enjoyed it a few times. Once was a few years ago with my parents. Recently I have returned twice with my wife. Bothe night were great. I love the comfortable feel of this place – even thou the place is larger than it appears.. I definitely would return to try more dishes. They currently have a price-fixed menu and summer menu in addition to the standard. The Pork Belly app. was amazing. We loved the Veal Short Rib. It was both tender and delicious.We also had the Rack of Lamb. The Lamb was cooked to perfection, at med-rare and had a tasty mustard crust. Service was exceptional...well-timed and friendly.

    My wife had a last minute surprise birthday party for me. We have been there many times before but not on Sat. night. This was the best service, the best food, and the best attitude that we have ever had there. Maybe it is better to go on a busy night when the A team is on the floor and in the kitchen. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

    It's hard to beat Cafe Chardonnay. The bar, the main dining room, all quite attractive...if not elegant. The servers are knowledgeable and attentive, and the food is nothing short of outstanding.

    We've been many times before. Food was good, not great as usually this time. Service was poor. Our waiter was gruff, bored or disinterested... and it showed. Our entrees arrived literally two minutes after we ordered them. Cafe Chardonnay, you can do better!

    My friend and I had reservations for Saturday evening. The menu was spectacular starting with the outstanding wine menu. We couldn't decide what we wanted for dinner so we opted for the Bone in Ribeye and the Scallop and Lobster Fettuccine. The kitchen was kind enough to split both and put on two plates. We had the oysters Rockefeller, another star! We both agreed it was the best ribeye we have EVER eaten. And since we're huge Buckhead Beef fans that is saying a lot. We didn't have room for dessert but certainly we wished that was not the case. We'd both go back in a heart beat!!!

    We have dined at Cafe Chardonnay in the past, and were very happy to find that they still provide such excellent service and high quality food. I enjoyed the New York Strip dinner, and was surprised with the size of the portions of meat and vegetables. Everything was cooked to perfection. My husband had the swordfish special dinner, and also tried the zucchini flowerets appetizer. Again the presentation and quality of the food was perfect. Our waiter was busy, but always was attentive to our needs. Great service!

    Love this place! Have eaten here many times over last three years: with friends, special occasions (birthday & anniversary)r-always stay with Jim our waiter-superb! Brian the wine sommelier-bar manager, makes selections is knowledgeable, cordial-great wine list here. Not exactly a bargain price place, although they do have many specials, especially in low season. However the food is gourmet quality deserving of a fair price.Always busy-even mid weeks and off season-reservations advised. Ample parking is near. This place has ambiance even when busy-nice decor, surroundings, comfortable seating ( we always get a preferred spot when requested +Jim the waiter. Last visit for wife's birthday (used birthday special coupon).`

Another great experience at Chardonnay.

    The retaurant is very pretty. Informed them we were celebrating a birthday, so seated, at corner window table, view of plants and lights---pretty! Scattered multicolored "Happy Birthdays" on table. Started with very smooth Reisling and interesting Belgian beer, (large list of wines, beers). Many nice things on menu---hard to choose. Had Oysters Rockafeller, shared beet salad, lobster for main entree. Partner had onion soup and duck. Food beautifully arranged, presented, excellent to eat! Service was warm, friendly. For dessert surprised us with slice of rich dark chocolate cake candle---complimentary! Prices not inexpensive but would definitely recommend Chardonnay for special occasions!!! Plan to return.

    My husband and I took my parent's there for my mom's Birthday during the Summer 4 course menu special. This was truly one of the best meals we have had which we all found very impressive being we travel a lot and often dine at excellent restarurants. This will be at the top of the our list for special occasions and we are only limiting it to special occasions since we live 45 minutes away.
