Beautiful outdoor patio. One beef dish was overdone, another had a mistake and they had to re-do leading to delay. But overall was good.
They have set up a nice outdoor seating area on the side of the restaurant, and they've done a really nice job making it nice, with heat lamps, shades, and plants. We were the only ones dining in, but we saw a number of other people stopping by to pick up takeout. The food is rich as French food is, and the portions are quite large. This place is a great neighborhood spot and I hope people will support them during this time.
Great food, atmosphere and service! Authentic french. A delight, we'll be back.
Every time we eat at Chou Chou it's lovely and delicious. Last night we had salmon, prawns and the duck. Someone in our party always gets the onion soup. Our daughter always gets the creme brulee, and my husband and I shared the homemade cheesecake, which was divine. We're never disappointed, and always leave satisfied and full. Delish!!
The scallops and shrimp were cooked perfectly. French onion soup was heavenly. Service was excellent.
They now have a nice little outdoor area with heaters and it is enclosed. I had the pork chop and it was perfectly cooked with green beans and fries. My wife had the filet and again very well cooked. I would highly recommend this wonderful bistro.
We didn’t end up eating there. Left after half an hour without service. 15 mins to get the menus. Went there for Valentine’s Day. Super understaffed on such a big night. Space was also too tight. After 10 mins until we were seated (with reservation), 10 mins later we finally got menus (had to ask because the host forgot to give us upon seating), 30 mins altogether with a glass of water and the menus but no one to serve us. $95.99 prix-fixe menu per person, we were sure that our experience would not be a positive one with a pricey menu, we walked out.
Excellent food in a quiet environment where conversation is possible.
wonderful neighborhood spot with excellent food and terrific service. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Worst table in the house near the door and cold drafts, lengthy wait for service at all points in the dinner, ridiculous amount of staff dropping silverware off plates as though they hadn't been trained in clearing tables, poor attentiveness overall. Food was very good but I won't go back.
Chou Chou Bistro was a warm, comfortable, and delightful place to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. The food met expectations and was tasty and beautiful. However, the waitress made the occasion extra special because of her service and sincerity.
The desserts were another highlight of the meal.
What a great find! Tried this during resturant week and will be going back. Fantastic food and service plus easy parking.
Can't beat the value of this place. The food is delightful and the prices are very, very reasonable. Everything my girlfriend and I had was delicious. We will definitely be back.
Excellent neighborhood place for excellent French cuisine at reasonable prices. Easy parking and friendly staff.
French onion soup is excellent!
Never disappoints! Excellent food & service! Will go again!
The service was excellent.
Hardly anyone in the restaurant during our dinner which started at 6pm.and finished around 715pm.
The food came out quickly. My French Onion soup was delicious, the salad was a bit boring.
My steak was cooked perfectly, but lacked tenderness and flavor. The bleu cheese sauce was underwhelming.
Overall the dinner was pleasant, but the food was a little disappointing.
We always have a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. Servers are so pleasant, and the food is awesome. I had the shrimp this time, my daughter had the salmon, and my husband had beef. Their desserts are excellent also.
Delicious food, although menus was a bit red meat heavy. Good wine list and friendly service. Brought back good memories of being in a Paris Bistro.
A wonderfully delicious Christmas dinner, thank you Chef Michael!
Went there on Christmas Day, service wasn’t very friendly, also the waiter didn’t seem to know what the Items on the menu were and kept repeating them in English while the menu was in French. We ordered the duck and found the sauce to be too sweet. Deserts were good but not amazing. Overall a disappointment, not planning on coming back.
This is a good neighborhood restaurant. We reserved for holiday dinner via open table. There was not notification that they were only doing. 75 pp Prix fixe option when the reservation was confirmed. Normally this is 40 pp. cute place but this was definitely a bate and switch.
It was a Christmas set menu. I wish we were told that in advance through the app when I made the reservation. It would have been nice if the restaurant contacted me by phone to inform me of the special menu. That having been said, the food was very good and the staff was friendly. No complaints aside from the surprise menu.
Had not eaten here in awhile. I'm happy to report that the food was really delicious. I ordered the three course meal for $40 and feel it was a good deal given the size of the portions and quality and taste of the food.
Delicious!!! We will be back soon!!!! Yummy!!!
We’ll be back. Scallops very good but over priced.
We dine here a few times per year as the Three-Course dinner is an excellent value.
I am sorry but this was a very, un-French bistro and an embarrassment to me because I invited international guests. I will never go there again.
Fabulous neighborhood restaurant. LOVE the French music.
Everything was excellent. Nice neighborhood spot. Highly recommend.
Another amazing meal at Chou Chou! We had the duck leg confit, salmon, and mushroom soufflé. Sooo tasty!
We love their panko-crusted salmon with light dill sauce. It is usually quiet on weekend afternoons for a lovely late lunch.
The service was attentive yet not intrusive. Our meals: Appetizer, maincourse and dessert. All were exceptional.
Amazing food at a reasonable price! This place is a treasure.
Too costly even with the Groupon. Playing loud rock music.
The food was excellent, but the service was begrudging.
We have been going to Chou Chou for many years. Their menu has changed several times. This may be their best. They have a 3-course meal for $40. Everyone loved all courses. Especially delicious was the duck leg confit and boeuf bourgignon. All desserts and appetizers were great. We highly recommend Chou Chou. We will be back a lot sooner in the future.
I love this restaurant. This is the 3rd time I've been here for dinner. Each time I've ordered something different and it is always wonderful.
