    We hoped that we'd found a good french restaurant. We were seated and ordered soup, escargot, Beef Bourguinon, Filet mignon and a bottle of Champagne. Escargot were ok. filet ordered med rare was cold and raw. Dessert was fine, there were only 2 tables occupied and still service was minimal. I was sorry that it wasn't better as We would love to enjoy french cuisine. Back to CafePress

    It's been over a decade since we last visited this restaurant. The remodeled decor AND the food are even better than previously. The prix fixe menu offers French dining at a reasonable price.

    We hadn't been here in at least 11 years, and what a wonderful surprise. The food was always good, but now it's fantastic! The menu is more extensive, the flavors really sparkled, and great combination of tastes. The filet mignon was one of the best I've ever had, as was the potato gratin and chocolate mouse. My husband said that the boeuf bourgignon was the best he's ever had outside of France! We had a fantastic bordeaux, which was very reasonably priced. Our serve was excellent. We were just concerned that very few tables were occupied, and we will definitely promote the restaurant to our friends as well as return here frequently. Merci beaucoup!

    Prix fixe menu for Mother's day was well worth the cost. The escargot was excellent and the duck breast entree was perfectly cooked. Mango panna cotta was light and delicious for dessert. Staff was pleasant and professional. Great night!

    Had driven by this spot for many years and was amazed that it is still operating after Covid and the economy challenges. Finally, for a Mother's Day, took a tip from a foody friend that the fare was worth the visit. And, he was right. lovely, quiet, well spaced tables, easy parking, charming decor, everything to sooth the soul. But, the tour de force menu of pre-fixe was robust in its offering, not requiring sacrifices in choice selection, and each of our selections rewarded with the integrity of its distinctive tastes. A favorite was the Boeuf Bourguignon. Its sauce's reduction was sublime as the beef fall-apart tender, a gustatory joy. Money well spent. Gracious and aware wait staff, an evening that shouldn't wait for special occasions. All those years passing it by thinking, "A French restaurant here? With that name, can't be". But, it is... so many wasted years not trying it.

    Chou Chou continues to be a bustling well-oiled machine of deliciousness! The place was slammed for Mother’s Day yet the courteous staff remained poised, professional and attentive! The food was outstanding across the board. And the three course special Mother’s Day menu did not disappoint. Our family is grateful to have Chou Chou in our neighborhood!
