A couple enjoying each others company tucked into a banquette late in the evening…a group of girlfriends people-watching from the sidewalk tables over brunch…two neighbors stopping by to grab lunch at the bar.


These people all have one thing in common as they enjoy a meal here on Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights- Chouquet's. Whether inside our warm dining room or outside under the heated protection of our large awning, diners come to Chouquet’s to enjoy fresh, seasonal French bistro fare in a casual yet refined environment. Join us for lunch, brunch, or dinner and let us satisfy you with signature dishes such as our grilled Ahi tuna with fennel ratatouille and Dungeness crab salad or with bistro classics such as steak frites, moules marinière, and our famous Iles flottantes for dessert. To complement your meal, we offer over 12 wines by the glass from our eclectic wine list of smaller producers.

Both food and service are good but not great. Tables are too close to each other, impossible to have a private conversation.

Food was good. But the wine by the glass was an under-pour. I think the standard is five glasses per bottle? The restaurant was trying to get eight. At the end of the meal, after I'd paid the check, I pointed the stingy pour out to the waitress. She said it was the owner's policy. For a $14 glass of wine, it left me with a bad feeling, even though we had a good dinner.

Delicious food, kind and helpful staff, great experience. The tables for 2 are small and close together, but we were given a nice spot and we really appreciated that.
Mostly reflective surfaces, so it gets quite noisy, but the liveliness is enjoyable, as is the decor.

We booked lunch for restaurant week only to find out that weekend was excluded from restaurant week deals. Stayed there anyway. Small, nothing special inside. Food was good, large portions and tasty. Coffee was tiny. Impossible to find parking . So, if you already parked and want good food, go there. However, I wouldn’t drive specifically just for this place.

We were getting together to celebrate my birthday but never really told our server, however at the end of our meal she brought us 2 glasses of champagne.

I had tuna tartar and it was presented in a very unusual way with frisée and shoestring potatoes-fabulous. My friend had the nicoisse and it was wonderful as well,

Servers were very attentive but not overly solicitous.

It was s very nice experience/I’ll put it on my Regular List!

This was our second time here. The atmosphere is relaxed while lively, rather than hurried or anemic. Attentive, friendly and helpful staff. Authentic French bistro food and staff. The menu had a good selection of meat, fowl and fish; and veggies were prepared to our liking. My wife ordered sole in lemon buerre sauce, which she enjoyed throughly. My salmon was overwhelmed by the garlicky spinach and sauce though. We enjoyed ourselves nonetheless and will return next time we are in the neighborhood.

Nothing fancy about this neighborhood country style French restaurant but the food is consistently good and reasonably priced (by San Francisco standards). Service is friendly and attentive and their wine list, although not large, is rather creative with some interesting choices available. Good place to go for a relaxed meal in a quaint setting.

Took BFF here for her birthday and was not disappointed. Truly is a neighborhood gem! We started with tuna tartar - AMAZING and fresh!! Entrees were filet mignon and the sole. Both were perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The mussels are certainly a favorite here. Every other table had at least one person with the mussels dish. A fairly extensive wine list if ordering by the bottle; significantly less options if you order by the glass but still a great selection. The service - from the hostess to waitress and server - was warm, friendly, and quick. The vibe was casual and relaxed. Can't wait to go back!

Overall I had a very nice experience at this restaraunt. The place was intimate and good for conversation, service was excellant. The food that we ordered was also excellant. My only complaint was that i found the portion size of the Steak Frites that we ordered was fairly small for the price. I did notice that other diners who ordered other dishes had quite large portions, so it may simply have been that one entree and I would not let it deter my from coming back.

Could you add Vegan entrees to your list of things to recommend (or not)? We really enjoyed our meal, but for some reason the restaurant hadn't received my request to have a warm vegan entree. They were able to create one, and I hope they add it to their menu so that other diners will know it's available.

Please help make diners and restaurants aware that environmentalists are recommending a plant-based diet in the age of climate change.

Outstanding in all respects. We made a last minute reservation and when we arrived, the hostess (co-owner?) was unable to seat us due to a lingering table of four. We were fine waiting, but she insisted on provided our drinks (beer and wine) free of charge. The food was delicious (trout salad, flamenkuche, steak frites, duck confit, dessert, dessert wine selection). The service was perfectly paced and the servers very warm and personable (including the woman who seated us---I wish I had noted her name. Kudos to the restaurant for such amazing front staff, and of course the chefs). The atmosphere is straightforward, simple, unpretentious, cozy. Next time we're in San Francisco we will be back!

Recently had lunch here and the food was wonderful. I had a lovely salad with flakes of trout and my son had a lovely fluffy omelette. While the food was the fresh and tasty, the wait staff was rather inattentive. She rarely came by and I had to flag down a bus boy and ask for check. Still, waited 10 min for check after requesting it.
