Have eaten twice at Choquet's in last month. Food is outstanding. Look forward to going there again.
Hard to understand why this place is under the radar.

Finally, a quiet classy restaurant
We wanted a quiet place to meet two out of towners. We needed to have an important conversation but also show them a good time and thank them for their help with a major project. Chouquet offered good food and nice ambiance and - that elusive ingredient - quiet! The wine suggestion was excellent; the food was good with the exception of my entree. The boef bourginon was way too salty, so they offered to take it back and prepare something else. My husband (who loves salt) ate my entree and gave me the rest of his scallops with black rice risotto (delicious). Chouguet did not charge us for the boef bourginon. Classy. We shared two desserts and I thought the apple tartlette was divine.

We ate at Chouquet's after
We ate at Chouquet's after seeing a film at The Clay. Great to have a restaurant that stays open past mid afternnon with more than a bar menu. Both of us had a french wine and the salmon with fennel & spinach. It was the perfect amount of food and well priced.

My experience here was amazing, staff and kitchen were definitely at the top of their game! The escargot was perfect, burger was heavenly, and their deserts looked as amazing as they tasted. Definitely recommend highly!

The Special Wine Dinner with French Wines paired with the different courses was an especially pleasing event. Few places do this and we are so fortunate to have been there. Each course was beautiful to see and the taste was exceptional...very special event. Hope they do this more than once a year...but the food at Chouquet's is outstanding every day but this was something special.

Service was good. We were
Service was good. We were running late on our reservation and they were very accomodating. Food was good. I started with the onion soup. The cheese had a charred flavor to it but other than that it was tasty. Overall,food was good and we would go back.

Excellent for Lunch
This small gem has the most European feel of any restaurant on Fillmore Street. Outside tables, inside European style table seating. Menu has a good balance of choices - reminds one of a true French Bistro. Lunch rush is a small problem but if you allow a good hour to eat, they will make sure you are out the door. Any extra requests are immediately satisfied.

Always a good choice
There is nothing I would change about Chouquet's ... the food is excellent, the menu interesting without being over the top, the service attentive but not intrusive, a conversation can be had without having to shout, the location in Pacific Heights is close to many neighborhoods, the (street) parking is generally available without much trouble ... what's not to like?!
We considered dining at a well-known place downtown, but knew that the menu, the food, and the service would be superb at Chouquet's, so why go downtown? We were not disappointed. Chouquet's is just as a restaurant should be.

Wine Paring Dinner
We enjoyed the latest pairing of French Wines with a wonderful selection of French dishes...special effort is made to have each dish presented almost as art work...beautiful and delicious...
Had an opportunity to try unknown biodynamic wines of small wine producers and they are special. A fun evening...Chouquet's is now one of several very interesting French restaurants and becoming one of our favorite ones...

Wine Paring Dinner
On the night we were there, there was a wine paring with wines of France and special dishes created to compliment the wines. Outstanding service and the food was wonderful....the regular menu has so many items that we want to try that we will have to come back when they don't have these special dinners...

A favorite place
Always a delightful place to visit. Friendly Staff ( owner to buser) , Great food, super service, Server knowledgable re wines and food.
Not just a neighborhood standby but worth traveling there from across town.

We went here for a special dinner and the food did not disappoint. I had the onion soup and the special fish which were excellent. My husband had the saumon terrine and thought it needed crackers. For dinner he had the steak, said it was good. The only criticism is the atmosphere, it's not special, feels more like an indoor picnic. Food is better than the decor.

My friend and I were greeted warmly at Chouquets. We split two salads- the Lyonnaise and the Beet. The staff was accommodating to alter just enough for our diet needs (feta instead of goat cheese, egg poached more than usual); both were delicious. And then my friend had the halibut special, which was prepared perfectly: the meat, still mist but cooked just right that the meat flaked perfectly. And it was on a risotto with just the perfect amount of cheesiness to make it yummy. I had the scallops, which were also prepared just right and came with a delicious mache salad and a sauce with small shrimp. And the creme brulee was the best we've had in years, just the right consistency!

Always good, with a French flair!
I live in the neighborhood and love walking to this excellent restaurant, with a European feel. Its so nice to have their great brunch menu on their outdoor patio, a great way to enjoy fine food and the nice neighborhood. I like to take friends here for lunch and dinner. At a recent dinner they recommended a wonderful rose that we never would have thought of. Went will with our mussles and fish dinner.
I love their tart with goat cheese though I did not see it on a recent dinner menu.

We have eaten at Chouquet's
We have eaten at Chouquet's several times but always had a concert to get to after dinner.
This is the first time we didn't have a concert to get to and we were able to enjoy the fine food without rushing.
Save room for dessert.

cozy and romantic
We decided to try this place after passing it several times on our walks down Fillmore Street. We are so happy we did!! The restaurant was very busy and service took a little longer than we expected, but the waiter (Vincent) made up for it with great service!! I had the Scallops and my boyfriend had the Pork, both dishes were excellent!! We recommend the Chocolate Fondant dessert!!

Our food was great, but the noise level was high, too high for conversation.

I go to Chouquet's with my daughter for brunch on sundays and I just went on a Friday night with my boyfriend and we had the best time. I would eat there every day if I could. The staff is so friendly and the food is wonderful!

I chose it for a first date because it was close to both of us and I thought it would be quiet but the food would be good - and it was all that. We sat outside, it was warm, quiet and comfortable. Service was extremely attentive. Food was very good, if a little pricey. Bread could be more interesting rather than a baguette bought at the grocery store. Only complaint was, like most SF restaurants, it stops serving way too early. SF is a sleepy town.

Amazing food unpretentious setting
We had a starter, entree, desert and wine and couldn't fault any of them. They were all delicious and reasonably priced. Service was also very good. Would recommend to others

Great neighbor bistrot for lunch
This is a great neighborhood restaurant for lunch, especially on a warm sunny day when you can eat outdoors.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We wanted to have a nice quiet brunch with out large crowds of people and got just that! Not a huge brunch menu, but enough variety to choose from. Our waiter, Vincent recommended we try the Croque-Monsieur and it was delicious!! If you're looking for a quiet bunch spot, this place is perfect!

Went here because they have no corkage fee on Wednesday nights. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff and quality of our food. Really good recommendation by our server on the beef burgundy. Tuesdays they have $1 oysters so we'll probably be back!

Great food and service
Loved the salade niçoise! The waitress was willing to do separate checks — with a smile!

Great local haunt
Consistently good. Friendly service. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Great French food
Great French restaurant without the price tag normally associated to French cuisine. The owner (French) does a great job and we go there all the time. Love the patio for brunch/lunch.

Great spot for sunny lunch outside.
This is a great restaurant! I love to eat here. The food is very good and I love the outdoor seating. I recommend sitting outside, eating lunch, and enjoying a nice glass of wine on a sunny day.

Best brunch in the city
My daughter and I go there several sundays a month and we love it. The eggs are fantastic.
And the staff could not be nicer! I have lived in the city for 20 years and I only wish I had tried
Chouquet's sooner! I love it for brunch. And I love it for dinner too. I would eat all my meals there if
I could. It's wonderful, warm and delicious. Everything a restaurant should be!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a Last minute reservation for 8. Couldn't have been better! We were in town for a wedding and didn't know the area, so really a lucky find. Delicious!!

This is one of our favorite
This is one of our favorite places for brunch on Sunday. We recently went there for dinner and it was just
as special. The sole with lemon butter sauce melted in your mouth and the burger was yummy too.

Helpful staff rich food
Like the French food in France a very rich fare. Escargots buttery garlicky and cheesy, onion soup thick w onions and very beefy flavor, mousse pâté a bit soupy, filet de boeuf was perfectly cooked and like butter but the plate overall was cold, I hate the idea of heating an already perfect m rare steak, but the flavor was excellent! We got help w the wine selection and were very pleased w the choices. Over all an enjoyable if very rich experience! Oh yes the vanilla creme brûlée was magnifique!

Good neighborhood spot
A very good place for brunch or lunch. Haven't been there for dinner yet. Parking can be difficult but mussels were outstanding and service was good.
