Cafe Chardonnay Ratings and Reviews
For 20 Years has been one of our favorite spots. Food is always good. However, front desk always seems to be in flux. When reserving we always ask for downstairs, but 5 out of 6 Times we are told we have to wait, even though we have a reservation.
We have great difficulty acending the steep steps to upstairs dinning.
And God forbid you have to go to the bathroom downstairs.
Guess they just don’t care about old time loyal customers.
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
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.
