French
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.

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.

Worth our 4-hour drive from Tupelo. Very professional service. Excellent foie gras appetizer and a beef tartare that was unique and superb! Sea bass entree was perfectly prepared and professionally deboned at the table. Filet was prepared exactly as requested, thin char surface and medium-rare inside. It was not as tender as it should be but had excellent flavor.
Flourless chocolate dessert was rich and satisfying. My high point was a dessert I haven't had for 30 years, an ouf au niege, perfectly made and nicely presented. A fine way to celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary.

I feel like one waiter waiting in ALL of the tables in the restaurant is not enough.We waited forever to have our plates cleared, for the dessert menu (two requests before we could get it), dessert ordering, bill request, etc.. Food was great but service definitely lacked.

My wife just returned from a long trip, so we ate at our favorite restaurant. Almost boring. Same high quality meal, excellent service, low noise level, and calm atmosphere. Perhaps a little expensive vs many restaurants, but in terms of Price-Value, an honestly bargain!

The food was average at best. My 90 year old mother had a hard time cutting her pork chop. The chef/waiter cut it for her and told her it was not tough. That it was fine.
I will never go back

The food was good - I very much enjoyed the grouper special. Our server was wonderful and friendly, but the coordination of her services vs the host/bartender seemed off at times. So it goes in a small restaurant, I guess. The ambiance was nice, fairly quiet and cozy. The prices are a bit steep for a place that backs up to a gas station, but they make a good meal.
