We went for Early Bird. The portions were generous and the food was delicious. Because of Covid, noise level was non-existent because restaurant was empty at that time, but actually noise has never been a problem. Will definitely be back.

Great food as usual. We typically go to the Waltham location but happened to be in the area so checked out this location. The feel was much like Waltham and the food was just as good. We had chicken piccata, which was so tasty, and rigatoni with meat sauce. Seating was comfortable with Covid protocol in place. Service was excellent and our server was hustling! Def would go back to this location.

My only complaint was the background music was too high and distracting trying to have a conversation.
Otherwise everything was great.

Great food, service and cocktail. George our server was very polite and professional. We shared the angel hair pasta with marinara and a small meatball ricotta pizza. Both very delicious. I had the winter berry sangria and Chocolate mousse. My husband had the carrot cake. We highly recommend this restaurant! Very extensive menu.

Always what we expect from the Chateau (we've been to five of 'em)! Started at the original in Waltham 40 plus years ago.
Our server Lynne was tremendous!

Been to the Chateau in other locations many times, first time here. As expected the food was excellent (chicken marsala particularly good.) We were there on a Sunday evening and place was really empty. We were impressed with set up for indoor dining during COVID - whole rows of booths were closed and plexiglass panels between other booths. Service was fine. Hope the place is full on other days.. too good to be that empty.

Hubby ordered a duo of ravioli and chicken parm. Disappointed that it came w/out any side salad. Chicken was insufficient to satisfy hubby.
I ordered Chicken Piccata. Also disappointed in no side salad. Received chicken marsala. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either.
The view and service were outstanding. Pricey for what you are getting.

I’m biased. This is my favorite restaurant. It is well run, the food is awesome and the staff are the best. It is clean, organized, and the view is lovely over the lake. My fave is veal parm dinner, antipasto. My husbands faves are raviolis and veal parm and the fried clams and scallops and even the lobster roll.

I have never had a bad meal here. Try the pizza too. It is delish!!!

We have been customers of this Chateau location for a few years. The food is consistent and the service is always great. They have responded to the pandemic requirements appropriately. We enjoyed our return and will be back soon. Hope they add the pork chops back to the menu in the future. They were perfect.

Tables were not social distance apart. Broiled Salmon was over cooked and dried out. When the waitress was told of the problem she did not offer to take it back to the kitchen but instead offered melted butter.
