Chardonnay's is a casual yet elegant restaurant featuring eclectic new-American cuisine and a carefully chosen wine list that includes twenty wines by the glass and many more by the bottle. We do not take reservations for the bar or the bar area, sorry. Those seats are first come first serve.

We ordered 2 of the 10 oz filet, they were fatty and not filet. The waitress immediately got the manager who said they could put them back on the grill. We said it’s not filet mignon it was thin and full of fat. He said would you like something else, we were not charged the waitress was very apologetic. I said we were very disappointed with the handling and she agreed and was embarrassed. It was disheartening to be served a different cut and still attempting to charge $32 for a lesser cut of beef!

Depending on the time and day, the restaurant may be boisterous with a high noise level, or a bit quieter. If you prefer the latter, you may want to opt for a weeknight that doesn't have a special (ie: 2 for $24 Tuesdays) and go earlier rather than later.

This was my second time dining here. I love the atmosphere. At 10pm on a weekend all of the tables are filled. I love that when other restaurants are shutting down, Chardonnay’s is still serving food. Every dish is a winner. In addition, they have a great wine list, and their after dinner martinis can’t be beat. The price point is reasonable. Waiter service is great. The atmosphere lends itself both to a date night or a night out with friends. All in all, this place is a winner!

Loved the food, but wish it had a little more amount for the price. Other than that, it was delicious!

For my birthday- there was no extras. No singing- waitress was constantly checking in but only to move the night along. Rude and unhappy. Nothing special. I’ve been coming here for years to celebrate special events- never again.

Always one of our favorite restaurants but wouldn’t go on Valentines Day again. Ordered Kabob Trio medium and came out rare. Sent back and when it was returned some scallops & shrimp were missing. Did get compensated with extra scallops but meat was still rare. Sad to see our favorite dish, Chicken Gorgonzola was no longer on the menu. Hopefully just an off night because it was crazy busy.

We love Chardonnay’s the one thing I would like is to go back to the Old Menu. We love all of the things on it. Not so crazy on the new one. I would also like to say Michelle is wonderful love her.!!

Our server Roxanne was AMAZING. Our filet was undercooked and I thought the pasta dish was too salty. I loved our table(especially with the heat by our legs!) we will be back on a special occasion...mainly for the superior service.

As a main staple of our “go to” places, I was extremely disappointed in their new menu, the extremely salty food and poor presentation of the plates. The veggies took al dente to a new level of crunchy, the fish was salt water salty and the shared S’Mores dessert that was flammabed table side, had marshmallows burnt to a crisp. Their best menu items; including zippy shrimp and pork medallions are no longer available.
While the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and professional the food has fallen short of the long standing high standard.

This was most of us first time there. We had a little bit of wait, but nothing major. Our service was very good. Our waitress was right on top of things.
I really liked the inside decor as well.it was comfortable and easy to have conversations with one another.

Our server was very attentive, always filling water glasses, and friendly. Wasabi tuna salad was delicious. The tomatoes were not ripe at all, but other than that the meal was delicious.

Would’ve given 5 stars if not for the noise and I think it’s a bit dark inside. My reservation was ready. All 4 of us loved our food. Even though it was very busy and during restaurant week, the quality was still on point. Great choices for restaurant week! Overall would recommend and will return. Not sure what can be done about the noise.

Food good as always but time between appetizer and entrees was rushed. We were only halfway done with our salad and calamari and our entree was put in front of us. We felt rushed. Our entree sat on the table while we finished our appetizer. Hopefully next time that will not happen.

Dinner was set for a special birthday dinner for my mom. It was perfect and I wouldn't have changed a thing! Between the atmosphere, the drinks and food, and our awesome attentive waitress, it was a perfect dinner!

When we pulled up the outside looked different than expected, but had a reservation & were very excited to eat. Once getting inside our initial expectations were met & then exceeded. The service was great, food & drinks were delicious! It’s a bit of a drive but we’d definitely travel again since it was well worth it! Thanks so much!!!

My husband and I went to dinner here. I had the 3 course restaurant week meal and my husband had pizza. My first course, which I pretty much hated was supposed to be grilled clams but tasted like poached clams with little flavor. Then came my main of scallops, pork belly and corn risotto- delicious. Banana cream pie was also delicious. My husband loved his pizza. The restaurant is pretty crowded both in the volume of customers and tables packed in, some pretty awkwardly and not so comfortable. Overall good experience but a few watch outs.
