The tradition of Southern France have stumbled across the heartbeat of American South at Chateau West, where intimate placement and unpretentious cuisine charmingly fulfill the Francophile in all of us. Chateau West is a gem tucked away off West End; you could almost miss it if it weren’t for the chateau like exterior. The ambiance, service, and menu offering reintroduce you to the favorites you’ve forgotten-and there’s real charm in that. Everything old is new again. Find a table for lunch or dinner and order up some classic French dishes such as Chateaubriand, Duck Chambord, Beef Bourguignon. Determined to maintain the utmost in quality, fresh baguettes are made daily and served with real European butter.

We are so fortunate to have this restaurant on our side of town. Been going there for years and the quality has never been less than stellar. Bouillabaisse, onion soup and coq au vin are the best Ive had anywhere, including France! And the chef does miraculous things with fish of all types. Not cheap but soooo worth it.

Sophisticated brunch, table cloths, place settings, appropriate music at appropriate levels, excellent service, delicious food. If you’re tired of watching sports while eating at a restaurant, give this one a look.

Dined to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The waiter was great, though the only server, so he was pretty busy.
The food was fabulous, my Saffron Shrimp appetizer was likely the best shrimp dish I’ve had. The Citrus Scallops were delicious and perfectly cooked. My wife really enjoyed the mixed seafood dish.
The Strawberry Napoleon really blew us away, it was huge, perfect for sharing! The pastry layers seemed crisp, when cutting into it, yet were very flakey in the mouth. Surprisingly, the dessert was not overly sweet, which was great since I’m diabetic! The fresh strawberry were sweeter than the custard or whipped cream. Wonderful meal, probably the best I’ve ever had in Nashville!

Phenomenal service from Aleksandra and team, large portions, and excellent tasting food. Our waitress ensured (many trips to the kitchen) that my gluten allergic wife had an amazing meal. There was no pressure for us to hurry up so they could turn the table. We will definitely as this place to our rotation.

New Year’s Eve

We had a great time! We were seated outside, which had quite a bit of noise from the street, but it was a cute space. The escargot was amazing, the cheese plate small but tasty. Great blackberry salmon, and the duck was nice also, interesting berry touch. Absolutely EXCELLENT service. Oh the desserts- wow! Definitely want to visit this spot again!

The $43 special of the day on Thursday nights was "Black Cod". The server said, "It tastes like Sea Bass." It tasted and textured like Codfish with a Caper sauce. If fish has a sauce, it's to hide something. Good fish cooked tenderly does not need a sauce. The asparagus spears were woody. If you cannot find great asparagus spears then use another vegetable. The steak at another table looked really good. The lamb is very rich. The potatoes were very good. We dined there to honor the late, great, Phil Valentine.

Staff was friendly. Atmosphere was great-like escaping to France amidst the hubbub of the city. Elegant, but not outrageous. Had the baby spinach salad, added salmon. Delicious! My husband’s quiche was excellent.

I was glad that we were able to find a restaurant on Christmas evening. They were very busy. We sat by the front door which was distracting and not enjoyable. Very noisy. I had hoped that there might be some sense of sitting at a fence cafe. There was little interaction with the space or experience. Our service was okay but I was not sure who our primary server was. Our water glasses were not refilled. We had to wait to order after dinner drinks and dessert. The food was delicious however. Not sure worth about returning

Upon entry you find a quaint French setting, well-appointed with a boutique feel.
The man who was working the hostess stand was beyond rude and careless, as he seated us at our reserved seats at the bar, then proceeded to belittle the staff verbally... very loudly.

Since the restaurant was sold out, this man kept sending people to the bar, where they literally stood over us while we were trying to enjoy our meal.
We spoke to both the bartenders and servers about this, and they approached the man we believed to be the host. As this man continually barked orders to the staff, we pulled one aside and let her know that she was doing a phenomenal job bussing tables (we even slipped her a $20 tip), but while we were speaking with her, this man approached and loudly stated to her "you don't have time to chat". We then discovered that this callous man was the OWNER.

The food was perfect, the aesthetics of the restaurant beautiful, but the way the staff was treated and spoken to in front of customers was beyond embarrassing for the restaurant.

10 out of 10 for the food, drinks, bartenders, servers, and bussers. ZERO out of 10 to the man who didn't appreciate that his team was working on CHRISTMAS, and that he should just be grateful that they showed up in good spirits to serve his customers for his bottom line.

Want a 5 star experience at a 3 star price point, cuisine not just hyped Asian, Mexican, or Italian then Chateau West is your choice. The staff/ owners are top-notch, courteous and knowledgeable. Prep time is appropriate for the unique quality and the flavors make you say "ahh". You must try Chateau West.

The menu had many options and the wine and food menu was very reasonably priced. The ambiance was good although the tables were a bit close together, which made it easy to hear the neighbors’ conversations. The table side service was good but the bathroom logistics made you dodge servers on the way to the restroom. Parking could be better but that likely was due to construction. Overall good value, and I’d go back to try more things on the menu!

We are so happy we found Chateau West on Open Table last year! We have dined there several times and every time has been a very enjoyable experience. On our most recent visit, we had one of the quiet tables at the front and great service by Rebecca. Sorry we didn’t take photos of the entrees because the bouillabaisse and scallops were well presented as well as delicious. If you haven’t tried Chateau West, give it a try. We think you will be pleasantly surprised and happy.
