  • "Le Chardonnay is a great place to kick back and enjoy a bottle of wine. The selection is fairly large. The service is a bit slow, but once you have had some wine, you don't really care. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is relaxed. Great find."

  • "Great food and great atmosphere! One of the best wine list I have seen and the staff went above and beyond"

  • "A great place for you and your Sweetie! A Valentine's Day evening gem! The ambiance was perfect: Dim lights, a working fire place on a cold night, an extensive wine list & good food! It was my second visit to Le Chardonney. My wife & I knew what to expect. We were not disappointed!"

  • "It's small, but not crowded. Expect a table as there are few booths. There is a bar, but it wasn't loud. Food was good. Wine was good. We had Prime rib and some chicken pasta with a brie appetizer and pinot noir. It was nice for a V-day dinner. Expect mid 20's per entree, but the portions are good."

  • "Had a wonderful time, the food was excellent, the wine was top notch, and our server, Kb Jones, was awesome as usual. I would definitely go again and I'm sure my lady friend was quite impressed as well."

  • "We really loved the food....They must have a great chef...The only complaint would be that they allow smoking at the bar which was about 10 ft from where we were dining...Just for that reason we may not go back...Other than that it was really a great place..."

  • "Service and atmosphere were exactly what I was looking for. Lead to a huge let down when the food arrived over cooked and tough. Very dissappointed in the preperation of the prime rib."

  • "Surprisingly they would not allow me to have an after dinner cigar in their bar area which was a smoking area because they said only cigarettes were permitted."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Overall, we had an OK dinner. The issue we had is the restaurant allows for smoking. The smoke really bothered is a first, until we got used to it."

  • "Everything was good but the table we had the roof started to leak water on me"

  • "Bar and food area are one and the same. Smoking is allowed in all areas. Food might have been better than I rated but the smoke ruined my appetite. Will not return."

  • "We needed a restaurant near a theater we were going to and it had been a while since we were in that area, so we decided to go. It was a very pleasant dinner and the food was very good and the service was great."

  • "My wife and I recently celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. We chose this place because it's smoke-friendly, but we always look forward to the excellent food. We were not disappointed. Our appetizer of wood-fired mushrooms were excellent. My entree of blackened grouper was perfectly cooked and the tiger shrimp and scallops are a delightful addition. My wife enjoyed her entree of pan roasted chicken picatta that had a gorgeous lemon butter caper sauce. For dessert, we enjoyed a palate-cleansing piece of key lime pie. The wine selection is very nice, the place is cozy, and the food is fantastic. What are you waiting on?"

  • "Made a reservation, arrived on time NO table available. What's the point. Food was over cooked and mediocre at best. Very disappointed."

  • "This is a bar and one has to be over 21 since they allow smoking. I did not know this when I made reservations. I have only been here in the summer on the patio. No one near me smoked. They have a fireplace and open kitchen. Because of this the ac was on. I was cold by an ac vent. No other tables available. The waitress was attentive my meal was good and excellent wine list."

  • "Good meal. Restaurant was quite full/noisy, as expected on NYE. Smoking IS allowed, which was a bit of a disappointment. Nice wine list, all very reasonably priced. On the list for a return visit in a less busy time."

  • "I made an Open Table reservation only to find that seating is first come, first served. We found a booth away from the smoker's and enjoyed a nice bottle of wine. The food was fine and the server efficient, but this is not a destination restaurant. It has more of a lounge atmosphere, and I kept wishing I was somewhere else."

  • "We just enjoy Le Chardonnay. The food and wine list are good, the servers are friendly, nice relaxing atmosphere. It is a great place to sneak out to in the middle of the week."

  • "Le Chardonnay was delicious and charming when I first went a few years ago. I decided it would be a great place to celebrate my anniversary this year with my boyfriend. We made reservations, dressed up, and were prepared for a great night of wine, Italian food, and romance. When we arrived there was a Huey's style sign that read "Seat Yourself." There were people in sweatpants and baseball caps. Our waitress looked sloppy and bored. Upon looking at the menu I realized most of the food on the menu was the kind of stuff I make at home or bar food (fish and chips, really?!) We got the tuna appetizer which was frankly not as good as its Outback counterpart. My salmon was dry and salty. Subpar experience and it still ended up costing $80!"

  • "I was unhappy that we were not informed on the front end that our 15 year old son would not be able to be there due t their policy of smoking in the establishment, which prohibits anyone under 21 from coming in due to state law."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Le Chardonnay is a 21-and-over establishment, which means they allow smoking. That's fine but one gets the sense that this fact is buried in the fine print. Who would assume that a restaurant called "Le Chardonnay," in a neighborhood with many nice restaurants, would actually be a smoky hole in the wall? Not what we were expecting. Many reviews here and elsewhere reflect this unwelcome surprise. A bit of rebranding is in order. Service was inattentive too, and nobody met us when we walked in. We had a reservation but were left standing around while servers catered to other customers. The food was pretty good, however. That may be what matters most. Unfortunately, this doesn't change the fact that the service and ambience both fell short."

  • "I made a reservation, but when we walked in a sign said please seat yourself. I did not realize smoking was allowed inside. I ordered filet, mashed potatoes, and Chef's choice vegetables. Steak and potatoes were tepid. Steak was ordered as Medium but arrived medium rare at best."
