Haven’t been for years and what a way to welcome me back. Al Fresco on my birthday. Pandemic or not Chapeau has always delivered. Tables were separated by partitions to ensure distancing.

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.

Chapeau is one of our favorite spots and it did not disappoint last week. We sat out on a little table on the sidewalk and felt safe in this age of coronavirus. Drinks were impeccable and the scallops were absolutely a slice of heaven. The service was inspiring. The best evening we've had in a long time. Can't wait to go back.

Chapeau! is my favorite restaurant in the city. My partner and I have been going for years and it has always been excellent. Every staff treats you like family, the owners (chef and wife) welcomes you personally, and most importantly the food is amazing. You can dress up or go casually and it will still feel like a very special night. Our favorite server is Sebastian. Not only is he friendly and makes you feel at home, but he is very knowledgeable about the menu and his recommendations are always on point (definitely ask him about wines and aperitifs). Thank you Chapeau! for being awesome!

I really enjoyed my experience at Chapeau! They have socially distanced outdoor dining with very cute lighting for when it gets dark. Indeed everything is delicious but you absolutely must get the salmon trio, the french onion soup and the profiteroles! Chef greeted us and the servers were very attentive.

Chapeau is delicious and outstanding as usual. Service is attentive and owner-hosts Philippe and Ellen are gracious and welcoming. I especially like their onion soup, salmon trio starter, mesclun salad. The bread, which Philippe is now baking is wonderful. Their outdoor dining area (result of Covid) is well planned, attractive and comfortable. Great dining choice.

So happy to get to dine here again. The outdoor space they have created is enchanting, which matches the overall atmosphere and kind,attentive, and fun service they provide. Not to mention the food was scrumptious as always. I highly recommend the scallops. And Ellen’s old fashioned is delightful.

Chapeau has managed to arrange 14 outdoor tables between its parklet spaces, sidewalk and the sidewalks of its neighbors on both sides. Combined with its always excellent food and animated service by Philippe, Sebastian, Christian et.al., this is a winner in the midst of our Covid summer.

Couldn't have been happier with the oysters, escargot, trio of salmon, corn soup with white truffle oil, coq au vin and filet mignon. Merci beaucoup, Team Chapeau!

Considering these strange times, this was as good as could be expected from this great place. Food was amazing as always, and the service was great as well.

The only thing that was slightly troublesome was that one of the waiter's masks kept slipping below his nose, which is forgivable to a degree, but was a bit disconcerting at times based on how many tables he was jumping between. Don't mean to be a nag at all, but couldn't definitely see some people getting unsettled by this. He was trying his best, but let's hope he gets a better mask soon!

Highly recommend.
