It is unfortunate that they add the tip automatically to a group of six. It sullies the experience somewhat. On the other hand it was good to know that the bill was $60 less than what I initially thought it was. We enjoyed the cheese plate and our waiter talked to the cook about the regions of origin. That was a wonderful touch.
I really enjoyed my Beef Bourguignon, my wife loved her Halibut Cheeks, My son thought the Salmon was great. My daughter did not really like the sole, but that might have been her tastes more than anything. Grand Pa was neutral about the Cassole, but he didn't listen to the description (his fault)and we were surprised that he ordered a bean dish!
The deserts were wonderful. A great evening.

So nice to have a great French bistrot in the neighborhood. Food was wonderful, exceeded expectations, though service was a little spotty, but we'd definitely go back.

Great food but not as cozy as sister restaurant Voila in Madison Park. Although our waitperson was knowledgeable and nice, for some reason (never explained) we waited nearly an hour for our food after ordering. There were several apologies, but we were one of the first tables seated on a Friday evening but one of the last served so clearly there was a mistake. We'd go back however, as we hope this was an aberration.

We love to eat at this French-style bistro that is so close to home. We would gladly drive across town for the food but fortunately it is not necessary! The carte offers most of the dishes one would expect to find at a French bistro but the emphasis is on seafood so the mussels and sole meuniere are among the most popular offerings and never fail to satisfy. Specials have included cassoulet and foie gras. In winter we enjoy the onion soup and boeuf bourgignon. The quality of the food far exceeds the price and the wine list provides a good selection, also fairly priced. Cocktails are offered as well.

Chloe is a terrific neighborhood French restaurant. The chef knows what he is doing, and the menu is authentic. With real ala carte pricing, it is easy to eat lightly if you wish, but the temptations to do otherwise are strong. Their cassoulet (weekend special) is excellent, as is their all-too-occasional sweetbreads special. The mussels are very nice, and the venison special was fork-tender, which is rare with venison. The wine list is good, and reasonably priced, focusing on regions of France. The only shortcomings are a limited number of meat entrees and no bar area. All in all, one of our favorites in a city full of good restaurants.

This was our second experience at Chloe.
Our first visit was wonderful. Great female server, great meal, wonderful atmosphere.
Our second visit was not great. Our male waiter was full of attitude. Of a group of four, three meals were good, one was was not. No mention was made of the uneaten 4th meal.
We asked if the lights could be dimmed as they were shining in our eyes. They were and then five minutes later they went up brighter than they had been originally.
There are better and cheaper neighborhood places to eat.

We tried Chloe as we have had good experiences with Voila! Bistro. Chloe is just as nice and not nearly as loud and noisy either. Good selections and variety on the menu, and great seasonal specials. We had the Cassoulet and were not disappointed.

Tables are tight, but like French bistros! Portions were generous, service a bit slow at times, endive salad is awesome, steak in the entrecote frites pretty greasy. We'll probably be back to try some other dishes, but had a craving for good steak frites

I was surprised and pleased at the ease of reserving by internet. We printed out our reservation, and then forgot to bring it with us. The welcomer at the desk found it immediately by last name and seated us at once. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable of the specials. Service was probably slow-seeming because we did not order appetizers. That was a good thing, because my excellent cassolet was enormous, and I took half of it home. Next time, and there will be a next time: appetizers, share the entree, room for dessert!

I really enjoyed my experience at Chloe The food was yummy and the service attentive.

If you go make sure not to sit at the table at the end of the long hallway. It's drafty and it would be nice if they could add another red curtain divider there. That would make that spot more cozy and not separate from the rest of the dining room.

I was very disappointed. I live in the neighborhood and love small local restaurants. First of all, I asked for a glass of Chardonnay and they said they were out of Chardonnay. Seriously? At 7 o'clock on a Friday night with two grocery stores less than a mile away. Then, I asked for the sole with the beurre blanc on the side. Oh no....they said they couldn't do that. So my sole came smothered with a brown butter sauce that added more calories than if I had had a lasagna. I don't think I will be going back. They have no idea what the term customer service means. The waiter had only been there a week and I felt very sorry for him.

What a wonderful experience. The food was terrific: simple/not over-wrought; flavorful, bright, incredibly fresh, piping hot. The service staff was really exceptional: I'd actually not seen this in a restaurant before-they all helped each other out, they really worked together as a team; The hostess also helped out as 'busboy' when necessary, the waiter from the other section helped keep our water glasses full, our waiter was informative, warm and responsive. The place was pretty quiet when we got there at 6pm (which is a-ok with us). By 8pm, the place was alive with chatter and laughter - only one table empty at 8pm on a Tuesday night!

On a more mundane note - they had a lot of free parking available, what a refreshing change!

Wonderful food in french bistro tradition with emphasis on seafood. The sole muinerre makes you understand why this is the dish that turned Julia Child onto French food. It is elegant simplicity. Save room for the profiteroles! We love Voila Bistrot in Madison Park, so it was fun to visit her sister restaurant.

This is the third restaurant to occupy the same Laurelhusrt location. We were hoping that third time was a charm but we were disappointed. The mussels were large, chewy, and musky. The main courses were reasonably well prepared but so full of butter and cream that I can't see eating here very often. On the plus side our waiter was competent and attentive, and the room is pleasant.

I was looking forward to Chloe because I love French food, and the kitchen did not disappoint. I was also pleasantly surprised by the prices of both the dishes and the wines. Neither the menu nor the wine list is particularly large (especially not the wine list), but the trade-off is that everything is a good value. I had some great duck along with a very nice Rhone. I will definitely be coming back.

Wine was toward the pricey. Food was outstanding and we will be back. The service was very uneven, as if the servers were unpracticed. That is no death knell. We like it very much and will be back for mussels, dessert, grilled romaine salad. It might become the neighborhood go-to we have been searching for.
