Food was fantastic BUT service was horrible. We waited at table for 10 min before waitress came over to take our drink orders. Then came back 5 min later with drinks. 10 min later came back to take orders, took 2 of our 4 orders then said she would be right back. 30 min later no one came back and my husband had to go get hostess. She did send someone over to take our food orders. We were there over 1hr before we got our food. Then we ate our yummy lunch. Waited for a while to get our bill. Put our credit card down to pay bill and another 10 min went by. Finally our original waitress came back to drop off receipt. Not an apology or anything for the wait or her disappearance . Lunch should not take 2 hrs!

Excellent food and service. Roasted duck was superb and the yellow tail snapper which my wife had was as good as it's always been in the 15 years we've been dining there. A bit noisy in the upstairs area but that may be because there were two tables of eight near us. Will continue to return to this gem.

Service and food were marginal at best. Never filled water glasses or were asked if we wanted more water. I had to start drinking my husbands water. The best part of the night was the dessert. We were really looking forward to the night since it was my husbands 60th birthday. Big disappointment!

We have been dining at this restaurant for nearly 20 years. The food continues to be consistently excellent, creative, well-prepared, very high-quality ingredients.
However, in this most recent visit, we found the service lacking. The service was inattentive, and we had to continually try to get the waiters attention. The odd thing about this situation was that this occurred at 5:30 on a Wednesday night, and the restaurant was not busy. It was at least 10 minutes before the waiter even acknowledged that we were there and took our drink order.
That said, we love this restaurant, we will return, and hopefully we will have a better service experience next time

We have been going to Chardonnay since it opened - 25 years ago. They have not skipped a beat - superb service - innovative - outstanding food. We love going there and when we do it is always a special occasion.

Not up to expectations . Cold barely cooked platted vegetables. Barrell fish that was highly recommended by the server not a quality fish.
Food arrived within 8 minutes of placed order. Are meals being pre prepared?

Excellent as always. The elk chop special was so flavorable & tender. Better than i imagined. I expect much, so was extremely pleased. Friend had lamb chops, loved them. Great service. They truly know how to treat their customers. That's why they've stayed in business all these decades.

This restaurant exceeded our dining expectations. The lamb and filet mignon were both fabulous-cooked to perfection. Their wine list is extensive. Our server Robert was outstanding and he further heightened our dining experience. You will not be disappointed.

The food is normal amazing but everything was subpar. Over cooked fish under cooked meat. And it seems like they added more tables to accommodate more guests which is great except it’s impossible to get to and from your table without placing your behind in someone’s face or on their table. It’s extremely unsafe for an older patron.
