Chouquet's Ratings and Reviews
Sometimes the start to the night is a foreshadowing of things to come. We had a reservation for 8pm and upon arriving at 7:55 were told they had us at 7:30 (they checked in someone else at that time under our name). We ended up finally sitting down at 8:20. Food was ok – steaks were way undercooked. There was come confusion on the entrees (honest mistake by the waiter) but it was just one of those nights.
The staff was very nice and although I’m not excited to return, I may be willing to give it another chance.
Really excellent for a group - we had 8 people and normally its tough in the city to get good service for larger groups, but this place was excellent. Pamela our server was very relaxed, fun and gave us plenty of time for our indecisive group ! wonderful place, great food and I'll definitely be back !
Love Chouquet's! It's the quintessential "corner" French bistro. Good food, good service and good neighborhood to people-watch. On a nice day or even a cool day, you can enjoy a table outside (there are heaters). I particularly like it in the winter, scooting in from the cold and rain...so cozy. Feels like you're in Paris.
I called to change my reservation from 4 to 6 because friends of ours asked to join the original 4 since they planned to drive from Oakland to the city. 30 minutes before our reservation was to occur, the same friends called to say that the awful bridge traffic was precluding their coming. The entire staff worked with us to get us the best table possible despite the inconvenience of our number that kept changing. All 4 of us enjoyed our food. The coq au vin and mussels were especially delicious and better than most we had tried in San Francisco. We were also impressed by the fact that when a dish was asked to be shared by 2 of us, the kitchen made the division for us and it was again handled with thoughtfulness and care. We will return often and think it is a french restaurant to be tried and enjoyed.
Even our friends who have lived in Paris were pleased! The chicken with truffled mashed potatoes was the best, but the salmon with mushroom risotto and the lamb chops were also delicious. Steak frites okay, frites arrived lukewarm. Oyster special was a great value.
The food left a lot to be desired, and was probably more comparable to a diner than a french bistro. Granted, it was a rush at the start to mother's day, but There was nothing to suggest a level of effort above the minimum, which included a quiche that appeared to be warmed up in a microwave, and eggs benedict that was around the same quality as what we'd make at home.
The service is good, the ambiance is great.
I got 3 calls from the restaurant asking if I meant to leave no tip and to explain or correct. Unfortunately for them I had left a 20% tip despite less than attentive service and an incorrect order. They had the wrong customer. I informed them of their mistake. I don't think that's great for business. I support the neighborhood restaurants. Still, that wasn't appreciated. No bueno, Bo.
Everyone was welcoming and friendly, willing to let us sit where ever we thought was best. My guest had the mussels and declared them outstanding as she is a mussel aficionado. Tuesday is $1.00 oyster night; my 2 tasted perfectly: salty, fresh, just out of the water. Definitely a place to return to.
This was one of the worst dining experiences I have had in SF. Waiter was rude and inattentive when we first arrived with reservations. He said we would have to wait since they were so busy---even thought our table was ready and there were other empty tables. While patiently waiting a group came in and sat at a table after talking to the busboy.
Food was awful: beginning with the bread which was sliced wheat break seemingly from the grocery store up the block---Orowheat maybe?
Salmon was so undercooked it was not even vaguely warm.
Burger was almost raw as well
Gravy on Lamb seemed to be from a can.
Boeuf stew had same "gravy" as the lamb. suspicious.
They were out of both Lillet and Dubonnet and when I then ordered a champagne cocktail I was brought flat champagne.
Terrible experience. The clientele all seemed to be over 70 years old so perhaps it is a place only those that have been in the neighborhood a VERY long time would appreciate.
Very convenient for after a Calvary Presbyterian Church concert. The service was quick and friendly. The ahi tuna appetizer was excellent. My husband enjoyed the traditional soup. I enjoyed rack of lamb (3 lamb chops). The dessert was billed as trio of sorbets, but it came as a frozen apple with sorbet inside it. We'd go there again.
While all of the waitstaff we're very nice, this restaurant left much to be desired. There were four of us, one of whom was the birthday girl, and the birthday occasion was not even acknowledged by the staff or the restaurant in anyway. Our menu orders were very simple, so the restaurant could have done an awesome job in preparing our meal. Three of us ordered the muscles with french fries and one of us ordered the salmon. Mind you, this was a lunch not a dinner. The muscles were ordinary and simple and warm. The french fries were dry and warm. No attempt was made in the preparation of the muscles or the french fries to do anything special. We all ordered Kir Royal, and they were to sweet with not enough champagne. It was very disappointing, and what a shame, because the staff was nice. I will not return or recommend this restaurant.
Picked Chouquet's for a Valentine dinner - unfortunately it disappointed. Pros: sat on street patio, cute, quiet warm (!) friendly server. Decent fixed menu for $75. Oysters, filet mignon, yum. Cons: picky yes but never offered/served bread as other tables got theirs, harried "bus boy" left all dirty plates sitting way too long and rare check ins from server as the staff seemed too rushed and busy. 7 PM reservation and main course plated about 8:45 PM. Seriously. We didn't need the authentic French 3 hour meal plan here guys. It's probably cute on a sunny day for lunch if you're in absolutely no rush, but for our evening, 3 stars at best. No hard liquor, wine and beer only. Meh.
Had dinner prior to going to the movies. I asked for no potaotoes and more vegetables and they gave me potatoes. This was corrected but I had to wait for the extra vegetables . I ordered the chicken . It was overcooked and the chicken breast was almost inedible. I learned from overhearing another waiter telling other customers that they cook their chicken ahead of time (rotisserie) and that 'tonight we overcooked it, I don't recommend to get it'. I wish I knew that and I would had ordered something else. I'm glad the wine recommendation from our waitress (Pamela) was good . If you knew chicken is overcooked , take it off the menu . I was only in the area to see a movie at the Clay theater and I didnt have the energy to complaint Very disappointed . This is SF, how can you serve food like this ?
