About Chouquet's

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.

Their rack of lamb, on their regular menu, is absolutely to die for. I had it the previous time and loved it so much, I couldn't go any farther down the menu when I saw it again. It was just as good the second time. Juicy, flavorful, and cooked perfectly!

Ive eaten here a few times and am usually please but on this occassion I was disappointed. The service was very slow . They seemed to be very understaffed. We sat for almost 10 minutes before getting menus. My Mom ordered a mimosa but our server clearly forgot to put the order in and it didn't come until I asked the other server about it. Mom enjoyed her quiche. I had the Nicoise salad which was very light on the dressing and flavor. The seared tuna it was topped with had a strong fishy taste that I could not eat.

Good food, cute place. The man who whisked plates in and out slammed things down in a super jarring way. Not sure why he was doing that. Otherwise service was good. It’s french so we had to ask for the check. I forget that sometimes!

Mixed bag. Starter (tuna poke) was great, but the main (roast chicken) was awful. Attentive service with a free top off on my glass of wine.

We went during restaurant week and the special prices were a bargain. It is a casual place with indoor and outdoor seating (in the sun). The food (French) was quite wonderful.

We had the nicest dinner on a Tuesday night. Delightfully surprised by the dollar oysters that were really, really nice. Great by-the-glass wine list for a weeknight. The trout salad is to die for.

The server was very accommodating seating us outside at a sunny table waiting for guest to arrive. We ordered a glass of wine while we waited. When our guest arrived, the server checked to see if we were happy with our table or if we would prefer to sit inside. She then moved us inside at our guest’s request. All this was done smoothly and professionally making for a delightful Sunday brunch.

We were attending a lecture nearby and went to Chouquet for a quick dinner beforehand. It was fine but for 2 diners, soup, salad and a glass of wine came to $90 after tip. Seems a bit expensive.

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 !

As always, Chouquet's delivers. I find their food fresh and creative. Easy to catch a quick bite or linger longer. Got my usual salade Nicoise and asked for anchovies on side which I adore.

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.
