A quiet café hidden off Yorkville Avenue. Chabrol Cafe brings a small taste of Southern France and encourages you to lose track of time.

We allow a dining time of two hours for a group of two diners and two and a half hours for larger groups during evening hours. If you desire a longer dining time, please call us to arrange.

Reservations made online will default to our dining room indoors. In order to reserve on the terrace or at the bar, please call us directly.

The food was excellent, prices a bit on the high side. We were seated in the old part near the bar, on a small table without a tablecloth. It felt like we were on top of the couple right next to us. I think we would have enjoyed being seated in the new section much more.

The food was first rate, and dessert was to die for (apple tart with sabayon)

Although the weather they a curve ball into our plans to sit at the outdoor patio, our genial host found us a couple of seats at the bar! Lots of fun watching all the action in a very tight space!

Great service and friendly staff! The spring green pea soup was yummy as was my wife’s asparagus salad! Our mains were great as well, especially the pan roasted poussain! Dessert was a lovely apple tart with a made to order zabaglione!! A must have!!

Great date night! Thank you all!

We went for lunch with a friend. Only the bar area was open so quite small but quaint with a small number of tables for sitting. We had a light lunch and were surprised by the quality of the food. The quiche was the best we had ever tasted by far. I had the foie gras, delicious; and we shared their amazing house famous apple dessert. I will definitely return and bring friends.

What a lovely discovery in Yorkville! Incredible dessert tarte Tatin /sabayon Calvados! The Rougets were perfectly boned and deliciously prepared! The Riesling poached foie was also perfect with salsifies and black current! We will be back for the authentic French flair....to appealing to take photos before eating?!

Food was great, and the creme brûlée was amazing!
However, it’s a tiny spot with almost no room to sit comfortably. It feels like a cafe with a super expensive menu.
We felt that it was way overpriced for the atmosphere!

Chabrol is a great spot to go to. Really well cooked food and a solid everyday menu that meets most tastes and diets.
I would highly recommend this for foodies, quiet lunchers, couples, or if you want to have an extended lunch.
Its a very small intimate setting and you'll get to know your server really well. It's impeccable so it's fun.
In the warmer months there is outdoor seating which more than doubles their capacity. Take advantage!

The food was amazing, the service great, the restaurant loud. The bathroom is in another section which you must access along a long dark hall with a high step that is not marked. I fell and hurt my shoulder very badly because I tripped over the step and fell into the edge of the open glass door. The staff were absolutely unapologetic. The server said it has never happened before; the manager just shrugged when he was told. They need to make it very clear there is a level change in that hall. They also need to be kinder when someone is hurt because they have not marked the step properly.

Wonderful food - everything was so good. I had the lamb main - best ever. Melt in your mouth with a sublime sauce. Foie gras app was silky smooth. Unfortunately no time for dessert.

Limited menu and wine list but would like to try everything. We will be back.

Very small room - only 5 two-person tables and 10 seats at the bar. With only hard surfaces, it did get noisy when full.

We had an excellent meal in Chabrol's cozy cafe over the holiday weekend. The food was excellent; I had a delicious medallion of lamb and my wife enjoyed a steamed whitefish dish. The baked apple and cream foam dessert was 👌👌👌. We're excited to come back for another special dinner in the near future.

The food was outstanding, as usual, and the service attentive. The noise level was a bit high due to a party of six at the next table. I am a regular client of Chabrol and look forward to visiting Chef Penfold's other restaurants.

Food was superb but the the room felt like a garage. The more confortable looking secret “trial restaurant” at the side with the separate menu was not offered to us and made us feel like second class citizens.
