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.

Its definitely my go-to spot in the Fillmore for fine French cuisine. I love the food and the staff are the best around. I always feel special when I dine here.

They need to focus on food--it felt like the menu & selections were old fashioned. The chicken we had wasn't done very well--it seemed old. But sitting outside with a glass of wine at the end of the day was delightful!

I love this place and wish I would remember to go more often. It feels like home; warm and comfortable, and very French. I love to go early with family. I tried the Sole this time and was pleasantly surprised as this is not what I normally order. It was one of the most delicious fish dishes I can remember. There was also a beautiful apple/flatbread/cheese appetizer. And don't underestimate the butte lettuce salad. So very elegant. Wine choices are perfect (and a nice pour).

Cozy, Friendly, Warm, non assuming environment. Fantastic lil gem in SF. Every single dish was delicious seriously. Would go back definitely. Almost don't want to tell anyone for fear of overcrowding.

A quiet, out of the way little restaurant. Fabulous food- my favorite steak frites - in the city! This is a gem of a local restaurant for the neighbors and it has a casual but sophisticated vibe. It has a small, outside area to have a glass of wine, or a full meal. I am looking forward to having their brunch! It’s a perfect spot for a romantic date or bring the whole family. The staff is kind, speedy, and friendly. Best in the city!

Perfect affortable French cuisine in a lovely comfortable space. Limited menu means they can do a few things well. Moules Normandie were delicious and the Boef Bourginon excellent. Service was outstanding and the wine selection perfect for a pleasant evening.

All our food was delish. Our waiter accidentally spilled water on one of our friends, then gave us glasses of champagne with cassis. It was a nice way to apologize for the mishap, and delicious on top. We'd go again.

I love Chouquet's. They have great food that's always consistently well prepared, and a nice diversity of options on the menu. Nice wine list too. Nice staff who are attentive but not overly so. On nice days, it's great to sit outside but with all the windows, even sitting inside is lovely. Good value for the money too!

Overall enjoyable evening with good service and food nicely prepared.
There was a very loud couple near us so this was rather distracting which did affect our experience.
Ambiance was standard cafe/bistro, not magical.
We were there for Bastille Day and thought there might be a special on offer but this was not so.
Would return but make sure we sit in a corner!

This is a gem I don't want anyone else to know about, it already has enough regulars from the neighborhood. Additional tourists would just clog up the glorious outdoor bistro seating. Mark, you're the BEST!

The service was very poor. Our service snapped at us when we could not hear where she directed us because of the noise. She took our order and then she disappeared, not once coming back. It was amazing. The worst service we ever had. She did not have good manners at all when we asked for a glass of water to be changed and slapped it on the table. The food was decent but did not justify the cost. Totally overrated.
The omelet came out too greasy. They acted like they were doing you a favor waiting on you. We are not going back there again.

We celebrated high school graduation at this place. The place is small and yet it felt very comfortable. The food was really good ( though I would not reorder steak nor that night’s escargot, everything else was amazing, and we have tried most items on the menu). The service was outstanding, delicate, fun, attentive. We’d definitely recommend this place.

The servers were very friendly and helpful in explaining dishes and making suggestions. Every dish we ordered was outstanding, and generous in portion size. My friend ordered the tuna tartare and said it was the best she'd ever had! The deserts were sooo good! We shared the chocolate fondant and apple tartane, both of which were served with a creamy vanilla ice cream. Upon leaving, we all felt that we'd found our new favorite restaurant!

The food was absolutely wonderful. The service, as always was spot-on. The exception of two adults who are encouraging two children to make ridiculous amounts of noise, there was actually pleasant level sound level. I would always recommend this place and love going there.
