Fit for a King
The ambiance is simply amazing. What a classy place. Pricy, but no worse than high-end restaurants we have visited in NYC or other big cities. I had read a comment about the parking, but we were offered validation. The souffle is a must for desert!

Chez Phillippe was a pleasant experience, but significantly overpriced.

Wonderful dining evening
We booked with OpenTable and were called the night before to confirm our reservation! Very comforting detail. Miguel, the main waiter, and the other staff were polite, friendly. One assistant server was very informed both about the hotel (Peabody) and the history of the restaurant and shared that info with us enthusiastically and added to our evening. They knew who the people in the murals were, etc. The food was superb. NOTHING was weak or unflavorful. Spectacular wine-pairing with courses (we did five course). Price was very reasonable for a gourmet meal. Presentation was superb as well. I sent the menu to a friend online and she said, "There is nothing on that menu I would not like to try!" A wonderful experience.

My husband and I were very pleased with our experience at Chez Phillippe. I have already recommended the restaurant to friends. It was a very special weekend for us.

full of old world class.

WOW! What an experience!
Our experience was extraordinary! The food was incredible. The overall service was superior. Derrick, our server, was attentive, personable (as all servers were) and extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine list (which is extensive). The atmosphere was cozy, quiet, and comforting. It was quite pricey but in my book, reasonable for the overall experience. Our bill for a three-course meal, a five-course meal, and a bottle of wine was around $250.00. I had the five-course meal and my wife had the three-course meal. My favorite was the lobster ragout. The filet was exquisite. With the five-course, you have a choice of two appetizers, two entrees, and dessert. I highly recommend Chez Philippe.

Bastille day Celbration
Went for the July 14th Chef's dinner, part of the Peabody's historic dinner series. Coquilles St. Jacques, haricot vert salad, entrecote (strip steak) and dessert, all cooked to perfection and served with flair and panache. Wine parings complemented the foods perfectly. A lovely and memorable evening. Pricey, but well worth it!

Peabody evening dinner.
Service was outstanding! Food was good, put extremely pricey for the average person. My girlfriend and I had the 7 course dinner - very best. $290 including ~$50 tip. If you enjoy formal dining, then Chez Philippe at Peabody hotel will satisfy your desire.

We were celebrating a birthday
We were celebrating a birthday in Memphis and wanted a special dinner. It was a good dining experience, but the music was too loud to be enjoyable and should have been modulated. Souffle dessert was excellent. Staff friendly and attentive.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A beautiful room filled with gentle music, roses, and greetings from our host set the mood for a lovely and memorable evening. The service and special touches to mark our celebration was thoughtfully prepared and much appreciated. Over the course of a few hours, It was very enjoyable to experience a wonderfully and beautifully prepared meal along with an evening of camaraderie.

We had the 5 course pre fixe with the wine pairing. Absolutely delicious! Wait staff was courteous and unobtrusive. Perfect for a special occasion!

Give this a try!!!
My mother and I were on a road trip, and, of course, wanted to stay at the Peabody Hotel. We decided to dine at Chez P, and had a wonderful experience from start to finish. I could not suggest a single change!!

lmpeccable Old World Charm
This is the experience every one dreams of when they visit an establishment that is rated as a premier dining venue. The food was phenomenal and substantial for the five course meal we enjoyed, service impeccable and attentive but not overbearing wait staff.The decor is extremely gorgeous and helps to elevate the experience.it made our stay at the Peabody Hotel exceptional and we can't wait to return to Memphis for this gem.

The food was very good. I was very impressed with the many different appetizers and entrees.

Overpriced but good
Enjoyed our meal. But it was very cold in the restaurant and the music was too loud and didn't fit the ambiance profile . Waiters were TOO attentive to the point if hovering .

Hidden in plain sight
I've been to the peabody dozens of times. This was the first visit for me to its signature restaurant. First class experience. The staff was not too fussy. They tended the table well. They were attentive without being intrusive. The food was delightful. We both had the three course pre fixe. My entree was the tender and delicious veal. We were both pleasantly surprised by the ample portions. The chocolate soufflé will be difficult to replicate outside the doors of the CP.

Romance at its best
One of the best overall dinning experiences I have ever had. The service
was wonderful, very attentive. The atmosphere was romantic and the veal
cheeks with brisket was delicious.

A Memphis MUST.
I was there 26 years ago and it was one of my most memorable dinner outings. I had to repeat it 26 years later. Thank you.

Chez Philippe! But of course!
Chez Philippe! True fine dining at the famed Peabody Hotel. Yes, it is a beautiful restaurant. Yes, the food is wonderful. Yes, the wine list is outstanding. Yes, the service is second to none. And Yes, it is expensive. My wife and I don't dine like that often but occasionally we "Go For It". The only regret we have is that the meal, ultimately, had to end. We both also know that we are fortunate to even be in a position to dine at Chez Philippe. Not everyone is as lucky and so we don't take something like this for granted. Hope you enjoy your visit.

We love Dover Sole and this was one of the worst we have had. The rest of the meal was fine and the waiters were excellent.

Outstanding culinary experience
I'm the type of person that starts to get fidgety and edgy when I sit in one place for too long - even on special occasions; but by the time we were done nearly three hours had gone by and I hadn't even noticed. All I could think about was how incredible the food was!

Special Restaurant in Memphis
We splurged with the Pairing dinners and felt it was worth the extra cost. The courses were well presented, high quality, varied, significant quantity, pretty, and paired very nicely with good wines. The staff was very professional and accommodating.

Chez Philippe was an excellent
Chez Philippe was an excellent choice to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The ambiance, the staff and the food were all outstanding. The chef's wine pairings for each of the courses were perfect. We will definitely return the next time we are in Memphis.

Every time I ever visited Chez Phillipe, it's not just because of the food, but the experience. I enjoy myself every time and I wish I could dine there more often.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything is special at Chez Phillipe. The atmosphere and decor are beautiful and result in a relaxed dining experience. The entire staff is attentive and the food is outstanding. This was my first dining experience at Chez Phillipe but will definitely not be the last

I realize Downtown Dining Week is a mad rush for all the downtown Memphis restaurants and I'm sure making a $20.13 meal while still maintaining their normal standards is difficult, but I was not disappointed by Chez Philippe. It was everything I had hoped it would be and I look forward to visiting again.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We visited during Downtown Dining and I was very impressed at the attention given to the food and service at this introductory price. The food was expertly prepared and presented and the service was excellent in a quiet, elegant atmosphere. I visited two other "fine" restaurants during Downtown Dining week and the quality of food was not as good as expected. That was not true at Chez Phillip - it was an excellent experience that exceeded my expectations and fellow diners agreed. We especially enjoyed the rich wine sauce and the beautiful vegetables cooked perfectly.

Excellent dinner with a veritable bounty of holiday favorites prepared with a Classic French touch. This is a far cry from the usual holiday menu. We will make our 2014 reservations,
