This spot has allot of potential. It has been around for about 9 years and the menu is severely outdated like 1970s . Plating of the food was clunky and needs more finesse. Plates were large and obstructive, and consumed the entire table. Not good for a date night spot. The entrees were huge, too big in fact. Shared plates with a updated 21st centrury menu would go a long way with the dating clientele. Fresh crisp vegetables with contrasting colors modern cooking techniques would bode well w the esthetics. Everything was brown on the plate. All though the flavors were good you can tell that the depth of the cuisine was lacking and only surface flavors were there. On the short rib the vegetables were all mush , so were the potatoes. The duck confit was very good flavor wise but again everything else was brown and mush . Too old school to keep up with the new wave culinary resurgence happening in LA. Not having eclectic bourbons , ryes or other whiskeys was a real bummer too. I mean even the Dark Horse Tavern has 1 or 2. If something doesn’t happen foodwise at Chablis they might as well be gobbled up by the competition.

The server was even worse. It was dead and he didn’t check back with us at all. Touching his nose and face when introducing himself to our table was off putting. The fact we waited 20 min for him to come get our check was a bit frustrating. He also never even asked to box the remaining food in which was purchased. Further morenhe didn’t even know the chefs name. All around a huge disappointment, I was so excited when I made the reservation here, I canceled a reservation at another restaurant. I wish that never happened luckily my date was very understanding.

My friend and I were there on a Groupon offer which made it very reasonable. the restaurant itself was a bit dated, but the staff was very welcoming, and the food... THE FOOD! So amazing! We shared the appetizer (tuna tartar) and that was okay, but again, felt a bit dated. Then came the entrees - filet mignon for her, and the flank steak for me. Both were cooked to perfection - not easy as my dining companion likes hers black and blue. But the chef nailed it! Beautifully seasoned. The wine list for by the glass choices was extensive and everything we chose was truly delicious. Lastly, we shared the Chocolate Lava Cake for dessert. Worth the wait and we both wished we had ordered our own. I would go back for that alone!

We sat outside on a simple patio and enjoyed the quiet. Inside was much noisier. Food was about average. Waiter attentive without being overbearing. I can't rave about the food. Kind of unimaginative and predictable. Not a place for foodies. I wouldn't rush back. Just not memorable.

Food here is always very good. Standards are a couple of steak dishes, short ribs, lamb chops and some sea food. Generally something for everyone. The starters are creative and include crabcake, scallop dish, cheese dish, and salads.

My fiancée and I have made this little gem "our spot." It's filled with personality, it's cozy, intimate and simply charming. The food is always fantastic. As a culinary professional myself I can tell the difference between a chef who simply prepares recipes or truly feels what he's cooking - Chablis offers the later. Everything is perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked and attractively presented. Just love this place.

We were seated promptly for our reservations at 7pm. Service was good; but upon the disclosure of having a Social Living purchase, service temperature became a little cold. This could have been me but my wife did concur.

Overall, our experience was about a 6.5 out of 10 (10 being perfect). We have to say that the portion did not match the cost of $30 plates (we typically have left-overs for this type of pricing). Although the flavor was good, it was not exceptional.

Came with my mom because it is next to salon and I just had my hair done. Convenient for the evening and didn't have to get in the car again before heading home. My first time eating here in my 22 years in Tarzana. I enjoyed the food, fancier ambience than local restaurants . Live music.

Unfortunately this was not a good experience. For the first time in 27 years my husband sent back his food. The tuna appetizer was not fresh, the avocado was brown and it was inedible.
The salmon was good but it looked to be about 4oz. I was left starving.

Chablis has surprisingly good cuisine. I had the roasted chicken, and I have to say the potatoes and vegetables were cooked to perfection. I needed to eat in Tarzana, picked Chablis at random, did not expect the cooking to be nearly as good as it was! It is clean and pleasant, there is a "live" pianist who is a true musician. The place lacks a certain pzazz, I'm not sure why. But I will certainly eat there again.

The portions are getting smaller and smallerTh choices were very limited .Servers seem to be in a rush The idea was to wait the Ne w Year at midnight and they stated when reservations were made that they did have several late reservations That the music will stay till midnight but they stopped before 11:30 so we celebrated the new year in the car.very disappointed Last time we were there the the stoves were not working well Food was slow coming and again they were rushing to close The least they could have done is offering a complimentary dessert for the wait
