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.

We have eaten here many times prior to the pandemic. The service has improved dramatically, the quality of the dinner was still wonderful, and the addition of outdoor dining is fantastic.

Delicious food, a pleasant outdoor dining set up (that block of Washington adjacent to Alta Plaza park is closed to traffic), and very friendly, accommodating service. What’s not to love?

We had a great time! The service was perfectly timed and the food was phenomenal! We got the eggs Benedict and the French toast and they were both so tasty! The eggs were cooked well and the hollandaise sauce was perfect! The French toast was crispy and soft on the inside and just the right amount of sweetness! We also got the bloody Mary’s and they were so savory! I would come again and get them all again!

Everything was fabulous! We had a party of 10 plus 2 dogs and the team at Chouquet’s was wonderful! Very attentive and patient with our large group and super friendly to our pups as well! Special night celebrating my birthday with family/close friends and Chouquet’s helped make the evening all the more special!

This neighborhood gem is one of my favorites and is my go-to for any time I need either a celebratory dinner or just want to have a nice dinner with a friend. The food and service are always excellent and the chocolate lava cake for dessert is to-die-for. They do a lovely lunch as well. Highly recommend -- you won't regret it.

I was disappointed. It didn't look clean and seemed sloppy. The service was fine. There was a child with an ear-piercing scream which hurt my eardrums. She was hanging around related to the staff, I believe. I love babies and there was one in a stroller, who behaved beautifully. The crème brûlée was perfect, but the onion soup had a big piece of bread very unappealing. The cheese in the onion soup was good. The pommes frites were unexceptional (find excellent ones at The Counter). The New York steak was very tasty, but had an odd texture. The price was very high for the dinner, given the ambience and noise.

Our first meal face-to-face as a group of nine in 17 months. We were able to eat lunch outside which is a challenge to find these days for a large group. The food is great although the amount of fresh seared tuna in my salad nicoise was much smaller than in the past. Chouquet provides heat lamps and even lap blankets for those who are cold. Everyone loved their meals. And plenty of choices for vegetarians.

The service was very good. The only problem was that we asked for very crispy bacon and it wasn't. The waiter did make a note of that when he put the order in. We probably should have sent it back but we were hungry.

The food was pretty mediocre. The soup special, a vegetable purée, was more puréed vegetables than a soup, tasted like it was mostly carrots, and was seriously underseasoned. The combo salt/pepper grinder did not work so we were just given a few paper packets of salt and pepper. The butter leaf salad was ok although some of the leaves were too big and leaning towards tough. The boeuf bourguignon was a few pieces of meat in a somewhat thin gravy/sauce and again, somewhat tasteless. Disappointing as we’ve eaten there a few times before and had much better food and service.

I was taken yesterday for my birthday lunch. Today i took my friend who was ravenous after my praises of yesterday. The hamburger is so delicious i had it 2 days in a row. The fries stay crispy after twenty minuted. I am such a foodie to eat the same meal
Two days in a row says it all. Staff is wonderful. Ambience is bare bones and quite cold but neighborly Definitely a wonderful experience

Food delicious as well as the service and the wine by the glass was quite good. Once the staff turned down the music, the sound level much better. They could work on the ambiance, because it has everything else going for it.

It was chilly and windy. We wanted to sit next to the wall to block the wind. The host was not accommodating saying there were reservations. Our waitress allowed us to move and provided excellent service. There was never a need for these tables while we were there.

Wonderful server, we sat outside in the “street” scene under an umbrella on a beautiful day with a bottle of lovely Sancerre. My guest had roasted chicken and I had the salade nicoise. My salade was very adequate but not exquisite. The tuna was a bit overdone (barely pink) and the greens, tomatoes, green beans and potatoes unimaginative. That said it wa enjoyable and we I will try it again as things get more “normal.”

We dined outside in a parklet which was very sweet. The atmosphere was intimate. We had the Boeuf Bourgignon (beef stew); it was yummy. The mussels were excellent. The salads were delicious.

The waiters were kind, expedient, and happy. The overall event was charming!
