Overall, the restaurant was fine. The food was good, not great, but good enough. The service was woefully lacking. There was no one in the restaurant at all and it took them quite awhile to get our order for beverages. Then we asked for water, which would have never been delivered, if we did not ask again. Then it took quite awhile to again get our food order. The food was prepared as requested and the portions were generous. The courtyard was pretty, but the actual restaurant was dated and dark. This is not the type of restaurant that I would visit again, as the food did not outweigh the other issues noted.

I always enjoy coming here for lunch and sitting out on the patio. The food is delicious and the service is amazing. My only problem is the noise of the airplanes as they fly over. Still, I enjoy coming here and recommend it.

The restaurant did not even have our reservation on file. The occasion was a family reunion following our son's wedding the night before. As a result, we were seated in cramped quarters right next to the bar.

Ventured here directly off a flight for brunch for my birthday. The ambiance by the outdoor fountain in the garden was great, though noisy due to planes flying overhead. The Ahi Tuna, Crab Cakes, and Shrimp Cocktail were awesome! The staff was great. And I was very appreciative of the nice dessert surprise, compliments of the chef, for my birthday. Will definitely return...soon.

Everything was outstanding. Only complaint is that it took a little long considering it was lunch service. I wasn’t on a time crunch today, but I usually need to keep it to 30 minutes. The environment was great with the fountain in the courtyard. I will definitely be back!

The restaurant did all it could to accommodate us since Open Table did not create a reservation for us. A table was created and the host and waiters were very professional. The buffet (Easter and Mother's Day) was excellent.

The restaurant itself is very pretty inside the wait staff were attentive. I ordered the turkey club sandwich and it was marginal at best. The bread was overly toasted that I could barely bite into the sandwich. The Asian coleslaw was okay, there were some wontons in it and they were a bit stale. This restaurant is inside a hotel and if I were a guest here then I would probably eat here again otherwise I would not return.

It's been several years since I last ate here, so thought I'd go again with a friend for a pre-show dinner, as I recalled the food being very good. What I didn't remember though was that the location of the restaurant precludes going back up Bristol to South Coast as it's a one-way only turn out of the driveway. This meant we had to take the freeway to get back to the concert hall. It was time-consuming and inconvenient so I shan't be dining there again. In addition the menu was completely different from what I had recalled, being more geared to lunch with lots of burgers and sandwiches. The pot roast however was delicious and tender (practically falling off the fork!), and though the seafood bisque was tasty it was, sadly, luke-warm.

Le Chateau Garden Bistro in the middle of a busy area is a real find. The restaurant is very quiet and one can have a conversation without being overwhelmed with ambient noise. We enjoyed the variety of the menu. The waiters were solicitous, conscientious and took care of all of our needs. Even though it is "off the beaten path" it is worthwhile to be there and enjoy a good meal. After our lunch we sat outside in the sun and enjoyed the patio. No one rushed us, even nice.

My fiancée and I found this gem of a restaurant last minute on Valentine's Day through Open Table-- so so glad we did! It was quick, affordable, and had just the class we were looking for. The service was excellent and the food was perfection! I got the Salmon, she got the steak: both dishes were hearty and juicy and we were too full for dessert. You never felt pushed around by waiters not were we coerced into getting the Valentines special. We will definitely be back!!
