    Excellent vibe, could turn lights down a bit in the high top table area after dark. Fire was cozy, food and wine delicious, and the wait staff might be some of the best most wonderful personalities we’ve ever encountered, anywhere.

    Dining here is always a treat. The staff is well trained, and this time was no exception; our sever was friendly and informative, answering our questions about the menu. My seared tuna ws perfect: seared on the outside, rare in the middle. My husband reported favorably on his steak frites as well. Paired with the orange fennel salad and a bottle of Stone Cold White it all added up to a perfect evening.

    Very nice greeting and excellent service through the meal. Menu was a little limited but if you wish just a sandwich or burger, it was on the menu. I ordered a side salad as an appetizer, which was not on the menu, but was very nice. Had the gnocchi which was very good. Similar comments from fellow diners, who had the burger, and grilled salmon. Setting was probably more delightful on a summer’s evening, not the dark and rainy night we had. Would recommend.

    We hadn’t been to Chamard in forever and were so pleasantly surprised by the ambience, the menu and service. Driving through the vineyard, even over a rather rough road on a winter’s night, lent to the feeling of being far from anywhere familiar. Two of our friends had never been were quite impressed and they are world travelers. Chamard’s wines have also come a long way in the past few years. Definitely making a mental note to return soon.

    Love this place. Service was friendly and efficient, great views overlooking the vineyard, quiet dining room which is great to allow conversation catching up with an old friend. My only negative is I ordered the steak and eggs and the steak was quite tough, difficult to cut even with a steak knife.

    My daughters and I had lunch here after Christmas before visiting the nearby outlets. The restaurant is really charming, with lovely views. The lunch menu had lots of interesting options and the food we ordered was delicious. The service also was excellent. The wine itself was not that exciting but it was fun to try the different varieties.
