    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we had a great time, the staff were friendly, the food was good, and I really liked where we were seated. All was wonderful, but I was so absorbed in conversation that I forgot to leave a tip. This prompted the waitress to run after us after we had left the restaurant and try and pressure me into giving her a tip. While I did have a good experience at the restaurant, being chased down for a tip is annoying enough for me to want to find somewhere else to eat next time.

    Nearly dead on a Sunday evening. Server very pleasant but somewhat lacking in knowledge of what was available. Pushed a cauliflower mushroom special, that was lacking in flavor or any originality. My salmon was actually a bit tough and its hard to make salmon tough! Other 3 members of the party were happy with their meals, though. Still, won't return.

    Comfortable and casual dining in the neighborhood is always a treat. Chloe is a small neighborhood bistro in the true sense of the word - a french bistro with bistro food (trout almandine, grilled salmon, mussels, beef bourguignon, with haricot verts or scalloped potato gratin for sides. This is simple french comfort food, prepared simply and tastily. The restaurant isn't large or jam-packed with tables (as some small spaces are) - but it is comfortable, with good service and a relaxed feeling. Just what I was looking for on a grey summer evening.

    Cool place with authentic (to my palate, anyway) French food. I though the food was very good. Not off the hook, but a good meal. The place seemed quiet, and I'm guessing that's normal because they appeared to have only one server and one busser. On a Saturday night. Could be the busy-street location.

    Dined on 6/10/2012
    We dined here recently and were absolutely let down by the food we were served. Service was fine, although our waitress appeared a bit unkempt. Except for the beet salad, every dish we received was awful. The mixed green salad is litereally just a few meager greens on a plate with barely any dressing and no toppings. The mussels were served in a colorless, bland, and just plain depressing broth. The chicken entree was grey and unappealing and the salmon was flavorless. The side of mashed potatoes tasted like the Betty Crocker packaged kind.

    We (4) were cheerfully met and seated by our waitress for the evening immediately upon our arrival. We started our meal sharing orders of Moulles Provencal and the best Macaroni and cheese I have tasted in some time. After the evenings specials were explained and our wine and starters had been served, we placed our entree orders and we began our dining experience. 4 different entrees were shared including meat and fish dishes and they were pronounced very good all around. We again shared an order of excellent Profiterols with coffee.

  • Brilliant French Cuisine
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/22/2012
    We came to Chloé based upon our string of brilliant experiences at Voilá Bistro in Madison Valley. We love French and French-influenced cuisine and were not disappointed! We chose a Tuesday night since we are usually busy most other nights, and the restaurant was almost empty. It was also the closest available date to go celebrate our 17th anniversary. Molly was our server and did an outstanding job. She was there at all the right moments, not obtrusive and offered clear responses to our questions without hesitation or bloviation. We started with Moules aux Bleu (mussels in a bleu/brie cream sauce) which were delicious. We got a little carried away sopping up the sauce in the crusty Macrina bread and had to force ourselves to stop...

    This was our second visit to Chloe and the food was as good as the first time. The service however was not as good. I do not believe our waitress was trained thoroughly. The food came out as expected although the soup and salad appetizers arrived at the same time allowing the soup to get cold or the salad warm. The table was not cleared as one would expect before dessert. I will certainly try the restaurant again and would recommend it but they need to improve service, Seattle has a lot of competition.

    While menu descriptions were enticing, execution on all fronts was uninspiring. Cocktails were poorly mixed with ratios all wrong, crusts of appetizers were charred, entrees were either oily, salty and less than fresh; and another was tough and oversalted. Wine did not come off as an burgundy we have tasted. Sorry, hope they can get it right sometime; but a long way to go

    Wouldn't really rate this as more than just being a gem in the Laurelhurst and U district neighborhoods. The tables are packed pretty close together which means you can easily over hear your neighbors' conversations. The food was tasty, and filling, but the wine was considerably over priced. For 12 $ a glass I want to experience a pretty stellar Bordeaux. My significant other enjoyed her meal but both of us found that the appearance of the food didnt lunge out at you. Enjoyed trying the place but much prefered Eva and 35th St Bistro

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/7/2012
    The food and service at Chloe were both excellent. The atmosphere was an enjoyable one, perfect for a date or maybe a small "girls' night out" dinner. My only complaint is that my boyfriend and I were seated two tables from another couple, and then another couple arriving later was seated two tables from us. The restaurant was pretty empty other than the three couples, so I would have hoped we could have been seated somewhat farther apart. Other than that, everything was great!

    this is our neighborhood stand-by place.. we go almost every other week since mostly the food is very good. This night my dish was (as always) great BUT my wife ordered a large side dish of macaroni and cheese. Sadly this was very disappointing. This dish was basically baked macaroni noodles in milk or cream with a bit of nutmeg (no cheese) with sprinkled parmesan on top popped under a grill. totally tasteless mess. This place should not be cutting corners like this. shame on you Chloe.

    The salmon was perfectly cooked; yummy kale and chopped mushrooms substituted for mashed potatoes at my request. My husband had the Kobe beef burger, also cooked just as he likes. It was big -- served with a pile of crispy fries (which I shared). The lemon tart was both tart and sweet, mellowed with whipped cream and mint on the side. The restaurant is cozy, with dark walls, but some other diners were laughing loudly/annoyingly across the small room. Otherwise, it was perfect, a happy find.

    The service at Chloe's was really great but I was a little disapointed with the mussles which you can get several different ways. We ordered the seafood mussels for an appetizer and they were not so good although our main course was awsome. So, I will return to but not order the mussels again, I will order their wonderful onion soup and daily specials which tasted really fresh. I also loved thir cream brule for dessert.

    bistrofanaticVIP
    Dined on 2/14/2012
    Chloé is a but if mixed messages and remembrances. Having a fairly authentic French bistro in a relative wasteland neighborhood for fine cuisine is much to its credit. It is certainly more of a family-style bistro than a fine-dining, quiet conversation venue than any of the former occupants; not a judgement, just a fact but if you have a history of looking for a great, quiet dinner in that area, you will need to change your expectations. The food is broadly great; not excellent, but great. The wine list is true bistro, although any bistro in France would be a bit embarassed by the lack of either low-end surprises or really fine high end wines. Not having a legitimate Cote-d'Or Burgundy on the list seems a bit bizarre!

    The general dining experience was good. Attentive, knowledgeable, lively and polite waiting staff; rustic and comfortable ambiance. Food: Escargot appetizer was good, but not phenomenal. We ordered Red Snapper with capers and lemon sauce (very much a French classic), soup du jour (Potatoes and Flannel soup), Soup onion gratinee and cassoulet (special that night), paired with a glass of house Cote Du Rhone. The Soup du jour was great. The onion soup was...probably one of the most diluted I have ever had in my life, which was a disappointment since this does not reflect my experience at Voila Bistrot (same head chef). The rest was fine, the red snapper was a highlight. The cassoulet was better overnight. Overall, a 3.5 star
