My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal together. We plan to return with friends. Plenty of gluten-free menu options.

A friend and I went to Chloe the other night for a spontaneous dinner out. It's a lovely little place right on 45th near Sand Point Way. My friend had the duck breast (his favorite) and said it delicious. I had the scallops, which were perfectly seared. His came with potatoes gratin and mine came with fennel risotto. We traded sides, but tasted both, which were also terrific.

The service was very attentive and friendly. This is a great little neighborhood spot with a nice atmosphere and delicious food. Would definitely go again.

The food was all prepared to very particular and exact standards. The specials were lovely. The service was incredible and the prices were fair to each item, not overinflated as some resturants have the tendency to.

I'm never in this neighborhood, but I might me more often to come back to Chloe. The service, food, wine everything was amazing. Very cozy and not pretentious. The dessert with the soft meringue was one of the best desserts I have EVER had. Can't wait to go back!

Service was friendly and quite excellent at this French restaurant. The menu offered items individually as well as three course dinners so there was a lot to choose from and the price was quite moderate. The snapper was very tasty and cooked just right to retain its moisture. The dessert, creme bulee, was delicious. The only drawback was that the restaurant fronts a busy street and the door was kept open so it was a little noisy. We certainly plan to go back again.

Dines at Chloe for the third or fourth time, and it was great again...food was tasty, service by Jean Baptiste was timely and cheerful. But the menu this time did not have a lot of French food which was strange. Aside from the escargots and the Poulet Fricasee special the rest of the menu was pretty unremarkable...but still delicious.

This was my second visit to Chloe. While I live in Ballard, many of my friends live around the University District. U Village has restaurants, but all - with the exception of perhaps Piatti ($$$$) - serve marginal food. Chloe's food is delicious! Truly French food, right proportioned, beautifully presented, moderately priced. The wine list is small, but of good quality.

It's nice to dine on a white table linens, on a table that's beautifully yet simply set. It's wonderful to be able to enjoy good conversation, too, without having to yell! GO HERE as an alternative to the Village! Easy parking on the street, and much better food!

I plan on making Chloe my 'go-to' place while in U Village or it's surrounds, visiting friends!

My wife liked the food whereas I did not. The place is not expensive but not cheap either. Service was mostly good but with a few hiccups. Overall, I felt that the place was a bit overpriced for what it actualy offered. My wife loved it, though, and she is more restaurant savvy than I am. So go figure.

A neighborhood gem I overlooked, as most of my friends living in the area head my way (Ballard) to try one of our many outstanding restaurants.

Better than Jak's (no offense, WAY too loud with 'standard' food), better than most places in the U Village area, and definately better than anything around University Avenue.

I'd put it on par to Le Pichet, downtown's wonderful, delicious, affordable family French food focused restaurant. Chloe is less 'relaxed' than Le Pichet (nicer decor by far), well lit, and a great place for the 'girls' to dine together, spoiling each other, or for a romantic night out with your significant other.

I ate there before a UW Event with a friend, and plan on bringing my husband next.

Booked a Tuesday night at 7:30pm for a party of 4. Our friends got there early and served water. The server did not come back to get drink orders until after we got there. We ordered drinks and got them.After a few mins were given the specials of the night. At 7:50 we ordered two apps. Then we were told that the kitchen was closing in 10 mins so we would need to order our entire meal. So much for a relaxing evening catching up with friends. We asked if we ordered if we could take our time and was told something about keep some staff "on the clock". REALLY?? We had our apps and left. Went to Jaks and had a lovely meal. We like good wine and food and what this guy didn't realize is that he lost around over $400 in business that night.

On a weeknight the restaurant was quiet and we were able to have such a relaxed visit that we almost missed the theater. Both the trout almandine and the cassoulet were well prepared. Mixed green salad with tangy dressing was the perfect accompaniment. Although only a few wines were served by the glass, we enjoyed our choice. We will definitely return.

Chloe has a lot of potential, but lacks in too many areas to be able to recommend it at this time.

First of all, they are severely understaffed, or at least they were they night we dined there. There was ONE waiter for the whole place. He did a good job for what he had to work with, but you could tell that it was too much.

Second, the food was inconsistent. The snapper was overwhelmed by lemon and salt, but my husband's beef medalions were perfect, even though his potatoes had way too much garlic. My profiteroles were also perfect. The endive salad and french onion soup were both very good. We ordered the cheese plate as a starter, but it never arrived.

If they start to get better reviews, I would try it again.

The cassoulet was great as always, and the ravioli was good. The server was friendly and efficient. I've always liked this little restaurant, but I am concerned about its future. We went on a Friday night around 7:30-8:00pm, and it was only half full. I hope it stays in business!

Last minute booking for New Year's Eve. We went with a native French man, who was delighted to have escargots on NYE, and was equally happy with the entrees and wine list. We ended up a little rushed as they were closing early, but it was a great meal!

My wife enjoyed the salmon (nicely grilled and not overwhelmed with the sauce) and beet salad. I had the beef medallions and endive salad both of which were very good. The pot de creme for dessert was a treat as well. Had a very reasonable prix fixe. Under $35 for three courses. Nice date night spot in Laurelhurst. Waiter was very attentive but too much so.
