Two delicious fish meals - the salmon and sea bass were quite good and the veggies with the sea bass were outstanding. We will return.

I have recommended CW many times, but based on last week's experience, I can no longer. Perhaps it was an "off" night. Server went to kitchen to clarify a diner's dietary ingredient question and never returned with the answer, or to take her order (he had taken all the other orders). Coq au vin was a bowl of gravy with carrots, potatoes, and a small piece of chicken, which was difficult to find in the deep bowl of gravy. One diner's sea bass arrived whole; in all my other times dining at CW it has been deboned at the table, or taken back to the kitchen for deboning. When hostess was asked to have the fish deboned she seemed bothered to have to take care of this. When the fish was returned to the table, the server explained that the "usual guy who does this is off tonight so there may be some bones left in the fish." There were many! I could go on and on, but hopefully you get the picture. Just a very poor but expensive dining experience.

Very good meal and service was great! I can not complain about anything and I will say that I had a dish that was seafood in a tomato broth and it was great! I will go back and get it again! Our server was Michelle and she was very helpful and nice, she knew the menu and was spot on with suggestions!

My wife had the filet; I had the pistachio encrusted rack of lamb. Each was very well prepared. We brought a bottle of 8 Years in the Desert, so it paired well with each of our entrees.

While our entrees were excellent, the salads left much to be desired. Two of our party had the ceasar and one person the spinach and bacon salad. The bacon salad was supposed to be warm, but was cold. The ceasar salad had a significant amount of head lettuce in addition to romaine, plus no anchovies. Both salad dressings had the distinct taste of being bottled dressings, not what is expected on a $10 side salad.

The entrees were excellent. The fillets perfectly cooked, as were the scallops.

Service was excellent, atmosphere was quiet and quaint (a nice change from the typical Nashville scenery), but the food was just average. Duck was awesome; scallops were fine; sea bass was terrible. Very fishy, small, and bland.

Consistently excellent food and service. Great ambiance and quiet enough that a table of 10 could all hear each other without having to shout. One of our favorite go-to restaurants in Nashville. (And the seared foie gras is a life changing experience.)

We had a lovely 33rd-anniversary dinner during our first visit to Chateau West. And, they provided a vase for me to borrow during dinner when my husband brought me flowers. They were even able to accommodate my food allergies. I'll be excited to try the weekend brunch the next time we go. Happy to have a new French restaurant to visit especially since Table 3 closed.

My friend and I were the first ones there on a weekday at 5:30pm. Our server was attentive and excellent, the food was delicious, and we were encouraged to stay and continue our visit as long as we wanted to, which we did. Even after some other tables were filled, we had no trouble hearing each other. It was a delightful evening. I can't believe we've never been here before! I certainly will return with my husband and friends.

This little quaint, romantic and intimate place is incredible. Reservations through open table were extremely easy. Had no clue what to expect when we walked in and were the only ones there besides staff. Took a shot at trying Chateau West in a whim just looking for something near downtown Nashville and thought the menu was excellent with competitive prices. We couldn’t have been happier. Everything was EXCELLENT! Staff, ambience, music, starters, wine, entrees, and dessert, all 5 stars. They even cooked our crepes beside the table serving them fresh. Can’t say enough about this restaurant, definitely a hidden gem in Nashville. Do your taste buds a favor and provide a romantic experience for your significant other, you will leave with a smile of the utmost satisfaction.

Chateau West is one of the few restaurants in Nashville where you can dine with friends and have a relaxed conversation without having to shout across the table. The food quality is excellent, and the wait staff provides superb service. Chateau West is one of my favorite lunch destinations, and dinner is equally enjoyable.

Food was good and tasty. Menu is not pure French but American French blend. They messed up the bill and it took time to get them to correct it. Otherwise it’s ok to go, nothing exceptional.
