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.

Everything was nice. I would have been even more please with the full menu to choose from. But they chose a SELECT menu to serve to customers on mothers day. I didnt know this when I reserved the restaurant for seven people. For that I give 4 stars...

Mother’s Fay was our first visit to Chateau West! Even thought they were busy, they made accommodations for us and the service never felt hurried or neglectful. We had a wonderful time!

I made a reservation for Mother’s Day. I was not told there was a Pre fixed menu but there was. Price was high for what was received. Server seemed confused at best. Seafood crepes were adequate. Scallops were over cooked. Duck gumbo had 2 bites of duck. Somehow my expectations were set high and I was very disappointed. Both desserts offered were very good.

I have eaten at Chateau West, and the food is good, and is usually not unreasonably priced, however, for Mother's Day they apparently do a bait and switch every year, and I just did not know this until I found out on Sunday. I went in expecting the usual brunch menu, $10-35 depending, and was presented with a $45 fixed menu instead. Their manager's defense was that they posted it online a week before... I made my reservation before that.
1. What my mom and I wanted wasn't on the fixed menu.
2. What was on the fixed menu worked out to ~3000 calories per person.
3. The price was 3 times the normal price of what mom & I order there.
Caveat Emptor.

Menu was a 3 course selection. Duck Gumpo was served luke warm in a small cup with very little Duck. One salmon entry was served cold and had to be reordered. The Seafood Crepe entry had very little seafood and Holandaise Sauce and was luke warm. The steak & egg entry had maybe 3ozs of meat. The restaurant’s accounting system went down and we waited about 15 min for it to take our payment. When we received our receipt, it was over $100 what we were supposed to be charged, which made them have to rebill me. As I was walking out, I realized they had not returned my credit card.

I felt the $45 cost per person was high relative to the quality and quantity of the food & service.

I will say our waiter was attentive and concerned with the issue the restaurant & kitchen were having that day- Mother’s Day.

Went in for a quick dinner and had appetizers and salads. Escargot was good. I did not care for the spinach salad and prefer it made with hot bacon dressing. This is simply spinach tossed with bacon bits and the other ingredients. The Tartare was good, though a bit too much mustard though my wife enjoyed hers served on a Caesar salad.

Booked for Easter Brunch. Treating my 82 year old Mother to a nice Easter lunch. First, no note or indication on Open Table or when we made the reservation that menu for Brunch was going to be Prix Fixe. Open Table showed the regular brunch menu. Decided not to try to find another place on Easter and went on and sat down for Brunch. Our server was covering inside and outside and was trying to keep up. The kitchen was obviously running behind. Our food was cold when it finally arrived. I didn't make an issue of it at the time because I had my Mother with me. The four of us with gratuity and no cocktails had a $250 tab for lukewarm to cold food. Just not the experience I expected for the price.

Went for Easter Brunch and was very disappointed. It could be so nice. Carpet looked terrible and food was mediocre at best. The omelette was scorched and the potatoes were room temperature. Too bad, I really was looking forward to experiencing Chateau West. Crème brûlée was good!

This was a family get together for the Easter weekend.
I chose this restaurant on a whim and what a great choice it turned out to be!
The place was quiet and dim but not too much of either.
The wait staff was attentive to the needs of the party and very friendly.
The food was fantastic and the wine great.
I will definitely be back again.

We took our family to Chateau West for an early Easter brunch. The food was outstanding...delicious and beautifully presented. Our five-year-old granddaughter enjoyed a quiche and lots of the fresh-baked bread. To top it all off, we ordered the flourless chocolate cake and a strawberry Napoleon...both were to die for!!! We shall return often!

Wonderful dinner for daughter’s birthday! Good choice of liquors and wines to suit every budget. Staff was very pleasant and personable. We started with saffron shrimp. They were great and the sauce was delicious with the French bread for dipping into it. Two of us had scrumptious mushroom soup and one had the French onion, all of which were fantastic. We were all very pleased with our entrees. Daughter had the scallops with goat cheese polenta, hubby had the filet with scalloped potatoes, and I had the mahi-mahi special with vegetable lasagna. Stuffed after a few bites, we asked for go boxes, but they brought the Birthday girl a molten chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream and a candle. I really thought that was sweet! Even though we are visiting from out of town, I feel sure we’ll be back.

I heard about Chateau West from a radio ad on The Phil Valentine Show. I checked out the menu on the restaurant's website and saw many things to tempt the palette. And as advertised, the prices were quite reasonable. So I reserved a table for two for our 34th anniversary. My wife had the beef bourguignon and I had the citrus scottish salmon. Both were outstanding! We finished the meal with a trio sampler of creme brulee, poached pears with caramel sauce, and a fantastic chocolate flourless cake. Yum! We will be back!!
