Excellent food. We were seated next to a large, loud group do it was a little too loud. Next time we will ask to be seated away from such a large party. Excellent service and reasonable prices.

Your prices have gone up too much. My favorite dish used to be Lasagna with meat sauce, one meatball, one sausage. I'm not paying $17 plus $4.50 ...... that's rediculus!!
Had the antipasto instead. It was ok but you've made it smaller now so definitely not worth $15.

The meal I ordered was made wrong so I asked to have it made the way it’s supposed to be and the second one was a seafood dish that had bones in it and it was half uncooked. Took my meal off the bill but I left hungry as they didn’t even try to fix it.

We were seated immediately. Our server was attentive and helpful. The food tasted great. Time between courses and between finishing our meals and paying was minimal. I recommend The Chateau in Norton.

Overall the experience was good, I’ve been to this restaurant several times food has always been good. This time however the food came too us Luke warm. The waitress apologized for the delay in service which we assumed was the reason the food was cold. Other than that no complaints.

Although we've gotten take out from the Chateau during the pandemic, this was our first time eating in the restaurant since early last year. It was just as good as always and such a treat to be able to eat inside.

we enjoyed the food, and service at the Norton location.
very dissapointed with the fact that I could not use my Birthday voucher you sent to me.
The Manager on Tuesday May 25th would not accept it due to the fact that we got the early bird special.
The waitress was new, and did not inform us of this before we ordered.
There was no mention on the voucher of any restrictions

Was very surprised. The atmosphere is pretty old school but appreciated! Food was unfussy and VERY Good! LOVE the booth seating. Next time, we will request a windo booth that overlooks the lake--there had to be at least 10 or more of them. I will definitely be back.

We went here for Mother’s Day it was our first visit but won’t be our last. The service was outstanding especially considering how busy it was. Food came out quickly and was very good. We sat by the windows and the view was awesome. Great experience!

The environment was good, in the bar area and it wasn’t too noisy, definitely wasn’t quiet either. Our waiter was great, friendly and helpful. But the food is way over priced for what it is. Tasted like frozen chicken parm. My daughter’s chicken Nuggets looked like Wendy’s chicken Nuggets. My husband got spaghetti with 2 shrimp for $20 not to mention that it had the wrong type of sauce on it. The drinks were definitely not up to par, my husband got a margarita which tasted “off” and my drink was skimping hard core on the alcohol... like I’m questioning if there was any in it.

We got seated near a window. The food was excellent. The service was good and our waiter was super busy. We could hear each other talking and were celebrating a birthday.
Great night!

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.
