Perfect Service, Wonderful meal
Le Chateau was particularly interesting because of the actual space and location. It is a beautful historic home and the atmosphere is old world. What made us very happy was the attention to details in regard to the service. The valet did not give tickets, but rather identified us by sight. Our car was also waiting when we stepped out on exit. This is rarely done anymore elsewhere. The head waiter was attentive, professional and charming. Cocktail orders were taken and served right away, and there was just the right amount of time to enjoy them before our order was taken for the balance of the meal. There was music, and our dinner was not rushed. We were given a great table (rare for twos) and had a great time.Souffle's for desert a MUST!

Lovely decor, friendly service
Lovely decor, friendly service and lamb chops cooked exactly to order. A little expensive for routine dining, but perfect for that special occasion.

It was my birthday celebration
It was my birthday celebration with friends. The food was excellent, we were taken care of well.The escargot were tender and the mustard and herb crusted rack of lambwas perfect. I'm not big on public displays but someone did tell them it was my birthday and they brought a beautiful baked Alaska at dessert time, which was quite tasteful. No one sang! It's a beautiful place and a great place for a celebration. I am looking forward to a Sunday brunch in the future.

We enjoyed a spectacular Sunday
We enjoyed a spectacular Sunday Brunch--service was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. Food was plentiful and every dish was beautifully presented and excellently prepared. This has always been a favorite for special occasions and we will definately return.

just a lovely experience
It turns out the food was the main thing–excellent. The restaurant is an old JP Morgan house, so you can't go wrong as far as ambience and old world charm--and we peeked around at some of the other rooms, which was so much fun! But the dinner--chateaubriande perfectly done for two and all that goes with it--was memorable. Perfect Baked Alaska for dessert--where can you even find it these days? We'll be back.

Overall, it was a good experience. The food was excellent, well proportioned (not too much nor too little), the wait staff was fairly friendly, and the views from the window seat we had were very nice. However, the wait staff seemed a bit out of sync. I suspect this may have been from the restaurant being understaffed. They also seemed to have had some new staff coming on board that needed extra direction from the more senior members; not optimal to be doing on an event day such as Mother's Day when we were there.

Went for Mother's Day dinner.
Went for Mother's Day dinner. Would've rated service 4 but it was an overwhelmingly busy night and you should expect things to take a bit longer on nights like that, and for any lapse, the server made up for it as soon as he could. Great food.

OpenTable Reservation Goof
This restaurant as always was superb. The reservation process through OpenTable however was not. I made a 7:30pm dinner reservation and received a confirmation. But somehow, without my knowledge, it was changed to 5:30pm. By dumb luck I found out about the change in time to get it fixed. OpenT says the restaurant must have made the change and told me to call them directly. The restaurant said No they didn't change it, were happy to correct it, and OpenT must be confused. But in any event if it wasn't me who changed it, shouldn't OpenT have notified me? And if I have to call the restaurant directly to ensure my correct reservation, doesn't that sort of defeat the whole purpose of OpenT? Le Chateau is the best, go - but shame on OpenTable.

The service is among the best I've ever experienced. From the enthusiastic valet to the very attentive owner, every detail was attended to. The food was excellent and we very much enjoyed the low-key jazz combo adding to the romantic mood. We will certainly be back again.

A very enjoyable culunary
A very enjoyable culunary experience. Entrees always exceptional, and the staff very attentive
and professional, but also friendly. It's not just a restaurant, it's a chateau of many venues. Its location is dreamy and the views of the
countryside are fabulous. Check it out, enjoy the view and prepare to be pampered.

My favorite place
This is a wonderful place to relax and dine! It is a favorite of ours and we go back every chance we can. The service, food quality and ambience are always excellent.

Professional, friendly service, tasty classic menu and really lovely surroundings.

Excellent all around
A special spot, but may become a regular. On a par with Highland Pavilion at Eagle Rock in NJ. French cuisine which does not disappoint a regular visitor to Paris. Excellent service, food, ambience.

A gem in the burbs
I love the Le Chateau. It is one of my most favorite restaurants. The service and the food is above the charts. I would recommend it to all my friends. One of the best finds outside of the city.

We had a great time! There was a wedding downstairs which seems more impressive that the 2nd floor seating. We will be back!

Very special place
We had an unbelievable evening and meal at Le Chateau. What a beautiful place it is and everyone was so welcoming and friendly! Menu had so many nice choices that is was hard to decide what to have. Our waiter offerered great suggestions and was key in our decision making. Everything we had was delicious! Can't wait to go back,!

Wonderful view and setting
The view over the valley are amazing - beautiful sunset! The dining rooms are also lovely and romantic. However, the quality of the food was very uneven. Vegetables in particular were very undercook and some dishes had almost no flavor. All of appetizer were good and the souflees were excellent. I would go back for the setting despite the food quality.

This is were we got married 25 years ago. It still has the same romantic charm and beautiful views. There were only three tables occupied in our dining room and the waiter spent time with each diner making everyone relaxed and comfortable. He was like a good friend we hadn't seen in a while. The restaurant made a special dessert plate for us to celebrate our special occasion, the food was delicious and beautifully plated and we would definitely recommend this to everyone. We were introduced to the owner and we told her to put down a reservation for our 50th anniversary.

You will want for nothing at this gem in South Salem. The location, history and scenic beauty of this elegant restaurant ensures a lovely memorable evening of fine food and wine.

Le Chateau - still wonderful
We returned to Le Chateau for a special occasion - and had a great meal. Service is excellent, food is prepared carefully and thoughtfully - and the ambience is very special. Had a great time. We will be back!

Good overall experience
We've been dining at LeChateau for many years. The ambience is wonderful, food is excellent and staff is experienced. A bit pricey for a "weekly regular" dining experience but perfect for that special occasion. Children that don't behave well should stay at home.

Great Thanksgiving dinner
We enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner at Le Chateau this year.....wonderful and diverse menu....from Lobster Bisque to Stuffed Trout and over souffles for dessert! The staff seemed a little overwhelmed but it was an outstanding dinner.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The ambiance was perfect. We were seated in a quiet corner. The service was impeccable. Everyone was courteous and professional. The wine selection is very good and the food is prepared in a way that you would expect from a French restaurant. The only reason we may not go there again is that is probably can't live up to the expectations formed by our first visit.
