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.

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.

Our charming server was patient with our non stop talking to each other instead of preparing our orders. So professional and so good!
Delicious food!

The food was very good, waiter was excellent. Chairs were kind of hard and cold. I thought it was rather pricey. $238 for 4 people!

Despite COVID restricting us to eating outside, the server was excellent. We eaten here before and enjoyed it. We tried the veal stew this time and it was outstanding.

Fun place. Service is a bit slow but it doesn't really matter. Food in general is great but salads are a bit skimpy.

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.”

As always the food and service (if a bit slow due to the crowds) we’re excellent and the staff gave us plenty of time to enjoy our food and the nice weather in a style reminiscent of that of restaurants in Paris. A very civilized and delightful way to spend a nice summer afternoon!

Friendly service and nice location, but food was oddly mediocre. Seems like with just a little more effort the food could be much better. Still, fine for a glass of wine and a little something to eat in the neighborhood.

I'd skip the burger. I usually get the quiche, but from time to time, I have their burger. It's not very pretty but I've always said it tastes better than it looks. This time, not so much. I'll avoid in the future.

This is a great spot for outdoor eating since they've taken over the street.

Food was excellent - esp. the gazpacho - and many dishes very innovative. The outside dining not great as it got quite cold when the wind came up.

The restaurant needs more standing heaters in their parklet. We could not feel any heat coming from the mounted heater and it was quite cold.

We celebrated my daughter's birthday outside. Had a nice outside table away from others. Food good as always and the service was great. It was the last place we ate in SF before shutdown and the first place we ate in SF at opening. Wonderful to have oysters and duck again. Thank you for still being there. You've been part of our family's special occasions for years.

We got a nice outdoor table out of the wind and the food was quick and good. I had the mussels which were large and tasty (although I’ve had better broth elsewhere.)
My only issue was with the bill. A 20% service charge was added for a large party of 6, but when I went to pay thru the app it first showed to add a tip, which I did.
Since I hadn’t bothered to review the bill in the darkness outside I ended up tipping on top of the service charge. I thought that setup was a bit deceitful.
I’ve considered getting the charge reversed on the card but my wife says to let it go since it’s already been paid out to the staff.

We usually love Chouquet and live 5 blocks away so we walk up often. Unfortunately this was the worst food we’ve ever had here except the French onion soup. Must’ve been someone different in the kitchen.

We sat outside. The food was delicious. The staff seems short-handed and a little overwhelmed at times. Some requests were mixed up. But all that could be overlooked because the food was so good. Highly recommend the Tuna Poke!

We enjoyed Sunday brunch sharing a nicoise salad and smoked salmon Benedict. The food was very good and service excellent. Outdoor dining is always a plus. Have reservations on Sunday. We saw people turned away.

Chouquet’s is always a delight— it makes for a special occasion. The staff is attentive and the food is outstanding. The outdoor “street patio” is sunny and sheltered from the wind. Plus they’re very dog friendly and always have treats for our pup.

On a corner in Pacific Heights, all outdoors (bring a coat) and COVID aware. Menu was wonderful, food was great.

Outside is a challenge for service. Our server pulled it off with good humor, help from other staff, and "the passthrough window" to move drinks from the bar to the table.

Adding to my list of choices for lunch in the afternoon!
