Beautiful setting outside and inside the bistro. The octopus was excellent. I was surprised the wine was very good. Had the cab/ merlot blend was good. The grapes from California were chosen by the vintner at the restaurant and processed on site. A hidden gem in the area.

From the greeting upon entering to the last bite of dessert Chamard Vineyards Bistro did not disappoint. We had the Mediterranean Platter and Charcuterie Platter with a delicious wine pairing suggested by our server. The raspberry Napoleon was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal.

Had yet another great experience at Chamard. We all had the burger which was delicious and prepared exactly as ordered. Since we were celebrating a birthday, we also had four of their desserts which were homemade, beautifully presented, and delicious too. Oh, and a bottle of their Sauvignon Blanc coupled with amazing service made for a perfect Sunday afternoon!

Inadequate number of staff for the number of patrons on a Saturday evening (even early). Waiter placed one order incorrectly so had to wait (a relatively long time) for one while others ate--though keep being told it would be "just a minute." Try 8-10 minutes.

The burger was super! Enjoyed the wine as well. Carrianne was sweet and so welcoming. Since the bistro wasn’t too busy (we were dining early) the background music was more noticeable that I prefer. Definitely will go again and again

Chamard is one of our favorite places to eat, and we go there often.....the food is very creative, prepared well, and delicious......the local sourced hamburger is a special treat, and the frittes that come with it are the best.....when it's crowded it can get a little loud since some of the tables are a bit close to each other, but the place is very enjoyable and the wines are special.....

I was looking for a good restaurant to which to take my wife for our seventh anniversary. The Chamard Vineyards bistro jumped out at me as I scanned the possibilities on Open Table. It did not disappoint. Cindy and I both thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the wine. We highly recommend the bistro to other couples.

My brides Birthday Celebration!!
Always an excellent meal. Slightly upscale food from onion soup and baked cheeses to amazing burgers to duck. Deserts are fresh and great. Esprsso too. Very reasonable prices. The service is always amazing. Friendly smiles all round will modify any dish and replace or credit if you dont love it. Of course this is a winery so their very own wines to choose from.

We had a nice lunch, we've been there a few times before and always enjoyed the food. , this time I was a little disappointed. We started with the Mediterranean plate, dips were fantastic, pita bread was a small amount to accompany it. Next we had the lyonaisse salad, delicious. Next my wife had the Chatham cod excellent dish, I had the pork belly, very tasty,but here's where it starts. My dish had more vegetables than the actual star of the show, the pork belly was less than a half inch thick and no larger than a inch and a half square. Prior to dinner the waiter asked us if we would like more pita bread to accompany the dips knowing there wasn't enough of pita, we said yes, when he asked us how the food was I had a hard time agreeing with his pretentious attitude . When we received the check, We couldn't believe this establishment was that desperate to charge 1$ for pita bread knowing there wasn't enough ,. Most likely will not be back.
