Classic style reminiscent of a Parisian restaurant. The service and ambiance are what you would find at a more expensive white-tablecloth restaurant and the food is a bargain.

The food was delicious. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. The prices were reasonable. Will return here on a future visit and recommend it to anyone who will travel to San Francisco. A wonderful evening.

Fantastic dinner, with a wonderful wine suggestion from the waiter. Food was delicious - prix fixe menu was not really "fixed" per se, but basically you can choose anything off the menu! Very flexible! Food was well-prepared, beautiful, delicious, and the chef came out to thank us for coming, all in all a wonderful experience!

We never had a bad experience at Chapeau. Philippe knows how to fine-tune French dishes to a new delight. A great restaurant that has been able to retain the excitement of fine food in a energetic atmosphere.

Took the girlfriend here for her birthday. I had mentioned in advance that my girlfriend is a Pescetarian and the restaurant was very accommodating.

The food was excellent, but their service is what shined the most. The entire staff were attentive throughout our meal and the waiter was extremely friendly. The chef came by personally to greet us as well.

We will definitely be back!

We were celebrating our January birthdays and wanted French cuisine. Chapeau offers a 3- course & 4-course menu or a la carte. It's a small, intimate restaurant, but lively--some couples, families with children, & friends celebrating. We both had the duck entree (leg & breast)-- delicious & a good size portion. For appetizers, my friend loved the escargot; the salmon trio was very good. Varied dessert menu--tough to choose. We enjoyed the special French toast & profiteroles. Service was excellent with birthday candles on our desserts. The only drawback to this restaurant is tough to find street parking, but worth it. Allow plenty of time to find a spot.

Chapeau is definitely on my going-back-every-year list. I came to Chapeau for Restaurant Week 2 years ago, and was deeply impressed. This year it was even better! Although I don't normally like pork, the bacon wrapped pork loin is the highlight of menu. It was so juicy and tender that I will keep remembering it until I come back next time!

The hostess named Lulu (not sure how to spell) was not welcoming at all.
I made a reservation 2 weeks before and she gave me a high-top table right next to the entrance. (The reservation was at 9pm in the middle of January in SF. It was pretty cold.)
There were 2 more high-top tables right next to the table she gave to us and both of them were empty but Lulu kept insisting that it was the table I reserved from OpenTable.
They all looked the same but she said the table next to the entrance was THE TABLE I reserved through OpenTable. I believe there is no option to choose a specific table.
I had such a high expectation about Chapeau! and she just ruined the mood of everybody.

The server was welcoming and he made us feel better about the restaurant.

Our dinner at Chapeau! Was the absolute best. I have no idea how I have lived in SF for nearly 10 years and I’ve never dined at this hidden gem. Great food, even better service. Custom wine pairings, amuse bouche, perfectly cleared table between every promptly delivered course... I can’t wait to go back!
