Somehow they didn't seem to have our reservation on their list but they were very gracious and found us seating right away. Very enjoyable Father's Day.

Service was great, three different wait staff and one manager strolled by...
However, the chips were cold and floppy, and we asked for an additional bowl of chips which was hot and crisp.
The salsa was ok, not too spicy more like roasted veggies. The dinner was not what I expected as a traditional meal. The corn side was lumpy and mashed and the margarita was very strong.
All and all we had to walk out as it got loud and uncomfortable.
Metal Chairs in an empty room that was not very warm. Honestly, it's a cookie-cutter Chevy's just not the same tastes that we remembered. Must be new wait staff and no honestly traditionally trained chef. It was good food, fresh but not as tasty as we remembered, seemed they were in a hurry to make the money. Hopefully, it gets better with time.

The restaurant is under remodel... it has been for a while and seems to be slow progress. So chairs are torn/tattered. Construction equipment is sitting all around. The food and the kind service still makes it a good choice.

Sat inside the main resturant. Samuel was outstanding in service.
The restaurant was very cold and many guests put there jackets back on after sitting down. The inside temperature even cooled the food down quickly.
Food was only fair. Cheese enchilada had no sauce on it.

Overall good value but not the same great experience we’d gotten at other Chevys.

The steak with our meal was incredibly tough - like chewing on rubber - and we left most of it.

The service was friendly but relatively slow. My guess is that they are still working through COVID operations so I want to give them the benefit of the doubt. But wasn’t incredibly crowded and we would go 10-15 min stretches between a visit from our server.

As usual, the kids were happy and the value was good, but not up to the bar we’ve received at other Chevy’s.

We hadn't been to Chevy's for years. We used to go to the restaurant in Foster City. The food and margaritas were as we remembered. There is plenty of well ventilated seating.

Service was slow due to being understaffed . In the span of 2 hours our 2 coffee cups were NEVER refilled. After finishing our main course the 6-10 dirty plates were only 1/3 bussed. We ordered 2 large desserts to share with our grandkids to eat with plastic utensils! After waiting for another 10 minutes we finally got our bill. I am an open table member accustomed to having my birthday acknowledged. It was not!!! What a total disappointment for my birthday!!!

We are impressed by the weekend brunch offered for $8 any selections from brunch menu.
The portions were adequate however the steaks were made ( all became well done) NOT accordingly our preferences.
Services were attentive, very accommodating meal to kick off our weekends! Thank you !

We were so happy to get out of the house. And got right in with our reservation via Open Table. Others had to wait over 20 minutes! My mango bulldog was delicious and I tried one of the new dishes: the mini chicken tostadas. Delish!

Lousy. Slow service. Made reservations for Sunday Brunch for Valentine's and also my birthday. Slow service. Bottomless mimosas took 40 minutes for 2nd round and kept getting slower and slower and smaller. Took forever. Food came out cold and took forever to get order in also. No mention whatsoever of birthday. Got sat in front of a pile of uncovered garbage and unused chairs/tables and crap. Really classy. Lousy service. Lousy food. Never again. No mention of birthday whatsoever. Ripped chairs, uneven wobbly table. I have been supporting this local restaurant for as long as I can remember even before pandemic but no more. This was awful. And I invited family.

It has been a while since I have been to Chevy's. I have to say I was very impressed! Our waitress was full of energy, very helpful and very quick service. My family and I enjoyed ourselves. However, it was very cold. We were seated outside in the front patio we did have one heater. My suggestion is maybe a few more heater would help to keep your customers comfortable...Other then that quick fix.. I will return for dinner soon.
Thank you!

We had a reservation,had to wait 35 minutes, was put by a freezing window, after I asked them not to set me there, and the heaters didn’t work. Waited almost an hour for our food, the food was cold, there was such loud voices, that we couldn’t hear. I go there once a week and spend $70-$80, it was a horrible experience.
A group of five young women came in with two dogs, sitting at the table, barking as we were eating. They were not support dogs, the women had them at the table with them.

Our waitress was nice but I had to always look for her or ask someone to get her for us. It was a bad experience.

We had a great Thanksgiving at our favorite Chevy's with our favorite server, Angela. If we couldn't be with family, this was the best place to be. Thank you again and we will probably see you on Christmas if you are open.
