Was hoping for a hot and tasty homemade Italian lunch on a chilly day. Nope. An unremarkable side salad with an overly sweet and metallic tasting balsamic dressing in a plastic takeout cup. A lunch special trio of lasagna (I ordered stuffed shells), veal parm, and a meatball. The meatball actually had a nice texture, but no discernible flavor. The small square of lasagna was dry and flavorless and fell apart with the touch of a fork. The veal parm was a dry, mealy, and flavorless ground veal (?) patty. A meager portion of bland tomato sauce did nothing to improve this dish. It could have been any store brand sauce from a jar, quickly heated in a microwave. The iced tea was served over ice so musty smelling it rendered the tea undrinkable. The scali bread was fresh, but the butter served with it was ice cold, hard, and unspreadable.

A disappointing dining experience. There was nothing at all delicious or satisfying about this meal. A horrible, school cafeteria quality mess of a meal. Why people rave about this place and return again and again is perplexing. Chateau, I wanted to love you. I just didn’t.

Thank you for taking my request for a quiet table into account when seating our party. We celebrated my father’s 92nd birthday, and he is partially deaf. The ‘Alcove’ was a perfect choice.
Our server, Nate, was outstanding. Friendly, efficient and professional—and always smiling. Can you clone him?!
Thank you for helping to make Sunday such a special day for our family.

Our waitress was very nice and attentive, but not hovering. The food was very good. We ordered a large variety of items from the menu: toasted ravioli, pizza, pasta, chicken piccata. Everything was tasty and well-prepared. The pizza was delicious, like the way the Chateau’s pizza in Waltham *used* to be. Mostly, our waitress went above and beyond, even finding out where the photos on the wall were taken. (We had expressed curiosity about the photos, as the landscapes were lovely and very nicely lit. She asked the manager, I suppose, and came back to let us know they were photos of the Cinque Terre in Italy. Thanks so much! We appreciated it!)

Casual dining, family dining. Traditional dishes. I wouldn't choose it for a special occasion. Large seating area in the bar as well as dining room. The expected New England Italian entrees. Foodies will be disappointed. Toasted ravioli exists nowhere else - but if you like that, you'll like this version. Good enough for dinner, drinks, apps. Parking fills up fast because of the hotel and Chili's overflow.

The food and service were excellent. The order from the bar was less to be desired, as the Raspberry Mojito's tasted more like Slo Gin Fizz. We mentioned this to our waitress, however she did not offer to replace the drinks, but rather brought us larger glasses filled with ice and water to dilute the drink.

First off my husband loves the tripe there & very hard to find it anywhere else locally.
We were all pleased with our meals & had a terrific waitress. We requested a round table booth
and were easily accommodated. It is one of our favorite places to go & being right off the
highway is an added plus.

Wonderful service as always-- and our lunch for a party of 5 for a work event was outstanding. Food was hot, delicious and reasonably priced. My colleagues fully enjoyed our experience and we can't wait to go back! 2 of us had the eggplant parm, 1 had the calamari, 1 had the pasta and meatballs and 1 had "the trio" of chicken parm, toasted ravioli and I think meatball. No complaints from anyone-- we ate every bite. We all had dessert and it was fantastic. Our entire bill was under $100 before the tip. Can't beat it, especially for the quality of food. The servers also deserve a second mention as they are just so nice to everyone.

On the "specials" it read "kids eat free every Tuesday". We had two kids with us. Both ordered off the kids menu. We were charged full price for one kid's and kid's price for the other meal. When I brought it to the server's attention, she said the manager will correct the bill. Brought revised bill back with one kid's meal credited but the other one was still charged full price. I just paid the bill, as we had some place to be and it was getting late. All in all, meal was good, service was good (but a little slower at times when it started getting busy). I would go back again!

Small portions of food,got a clam and scollop plate. Sea scallops were cut down to make it look like you got more. Clams were far to few and tiny bellies. I never been there before, and always wanted to try it out. Now that I have,i won't be going back.

This place is OK. Not the best or the worst, but it's good for a bigger group and the food is decent. The service is GREAT. I'd get the toasted raviolis, house specialty and definitely the best of the meals we had. Overall I would probably go again just because its so convenient.
