Had a nice birthday dinner with my husband. Had mentioned it was going to be a birthday dinner when I reserved my table , so they put small happy birthday glitter on the table and treated me to a free dessert with a candle. The service is always excellent and the food fit for a connoisseur. Elegant inside but not stuffy.
Highly recommend and we have been going for years to Chardonnay and the experience is A+

We love Café Chardonnay, we've been going for 15 years. This was the first night we had a waiter that had a bad night. Nice fellow, we felt so bad for him.

We have dined at Cafe Chardonnay up to three times a month for the last ten years, great food, service etc. About six years ago they screwed our dinner reservations and we had a heart to heart talk with management and everything has been fine ever since then. On Friday 2/16/18 we were entertaining out of town guest and the three nitwit hostess totally destroyed our evening. We arrived at 7:25 for a 7:30 dinner reservation and were told the table was been reset and there would be a five minute wait. Other people arrived, groups of three or four and were seated, couples arrived and were seated at four top tables and we were still waiting. Finally at 8:30 we were seated. When your turn over your business to a bunch of kids that have no common sense and don't care what happens you destroy your business. If what just occurred every happens again we will never set foot in Cafe Chardonnay. On busy weekends they need an adult that knows how to handle and treat the guest.

It was Valentines Day dinner with friends and fiancé. Service was excellent. Food excellent. However, the clientele are mostly old and rude. We are young and well mannered. You have to deal with seeing diners behaving badly. I made my reservation 12/10/2017 for 2/14/2108 and we had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. Yet there was an old crotchety couple with NO reservation ON VALENTINES DAY and he was seated before we were!!! They seated him because he was making a seen. SMH.

We have been going to Chardonnay for the 25 years that they are in business and have never been disappointed or had a bad experience. Good food; excellent servers; just a delight and Lorin, our server made it perfect. Thanks.

Food was excellent; short ribs and macadamia crusted snapper! Did not like table location. One of 2 tables in main corridor, even too tight for 2. Lesson learned - request table location ahead of time.

As always, Cafe Chardonnay was exquisite. We were there to celebrate birthdays and had gift cards to use. The food prepared perfectly. However, we only typically go if we have been given gift cards as it is quite expensive. But if money is not an issue for you, you can't go wrong!

Service was good, the food tasty but the prices are rather high. The quantity of the dishes is too big and could be reduced thus allowing prices to come down. We noticed a number of patrons taking doggie bags. An upscale restaurant should know better.

We've been there several times, and the experience has always been outstanding whether we are there for lunch or dinner. We enjoyed our liver and onions with mashed potatoes, and the zucchini noodles and shrimp in a pesto sauce. This time was lunch celebrating a birthday. Service was always good, but especially superb with our waitress, Tracey. We recommend Cafe Chardonnay on any occasion or just to have a wonderful experience.

Everything was first rate from beginning to end.

They graciously split the starting salads we ordered. My main course, was as good or better than the cioppino I get in it’s (and my) home town of San Francisco. My fellow dining companions also loved their entrees. The portions were generous and service professional and perfect.
