Chapeau has moved to outdoor seating during the pandemic, and at the same time has maintained all the ambience you would expect from a French bistro. Our dining experience included attention to details that included rich sauces that were prepared to just the right consistency and flavor balance, hearty portions, and service that attended to our pace. The filet mignon was cooked rare for me and medium rare for my wife, and both were done properly with consistency throughout. Although the evening was chilly, we were accommodated with heaters and slightly faster service.

Words cannot convey how good the food and dining experience was! If you want a true Parisian food experience, this place is a must visit! Phillipe the Chef was awesome and very personable. Myself and Wife will definitely return. I wish there were more menu items, but simplicity is key.

The food and service was very good. They do a great job with the outside dining during these trying times. I hope they are able to keep some outside when things get back to "normal". It would be nice to enjoy a meal out there on a nice evening.

In these crazy times, Chapeau has the customer in mind and has made the experience memorable even in a mask. The food and the service are impeccable. Chapeau will go to great lengths to insure that every diner has a French food experience to remember.
I cannot say enough good things about what the Chapeau team has done to make COVID disappear for 2 hours.

This was only my 3rd time eating out since COVID began 7 1/2 months ago. It was a huge pleasure. The food was delicious. The staff was charming and attentive. The outdoor seating was well-spaced and comfortable, with a heat lamp keeping us cozy. I felt safe and happy and look forward to returning again soon.

This was our first night out in a proper (outdoor) restaurant in months. Phillipe as always was so welcoming and the food, again, as always was delicious. The pared down menu still delivered on great French fare, and Ellen always seems to pick the right bottle to go with the meal. Was nice to come back to something so familiar, in a safe and delicious way.

Wonderful french dining in safe, isolated outdoor booths. A great find that reminded me of the best of the French bistros in Paris. All the food was good, but the filet mignon was melt-in-the-mouth outstanding. A limited but effective selection of wines by the glass: all good. We'll definitely be back. Highly recommended.

(Note: although there were heaters, there were no umbrellas in early October, so beware of rain!)

I have been coming here since before they moved locations, the food is always delicious, cooked perfectly and the service is impeccable. With Covid happening the menu is not as large as it used to be but they have all the favorite items. Thanks so much for an amazing meal.

It was too cold to dine oudtdoors. The heater helped, but we weren't dress warmly enough.

It would have been good to be warned when making our reservation.

Phillips and Ellen did an outstanding job. Heat lamps, private outdoor booths all added to the wonderful French food. During this time Phillips learned how to make home made bread and ice team. So not miss the basil ice cream if available.

Chapeau! is a fantastic little Bistro. My wife had the day boat scallops and they were off the charts, big, fresh, sweet and tender, while I had the cassoulet, which was hearty and satisfying as always. The service was outstanding and Chef Phillipe and Ellen showed the kindest hospitality. Thanks for a lovely anniversary dinner.
