Spilled a full glass of water on the floor and had to clean it up by myself. No waitress came to help. Glass of wine is way too much money and the food is as is always is - just ok just alot more expensive. The female bartender was a bit rude as well.

I had dinner their with my daughter and her Fiance. It was their first time there. I made a few recommendations and they loved them all. Fettuccine Alfredo, the Trio 2 and of course the Bread and butter. I had my regular Veal Parm with Toasted Ravioli. OMG we all took home leftovers and enjoyed catching up again since this craziness started. The food was a bonus.Thank You The Chateau !

So service was good. Food was aweful and this is our second time because we wanted to give it another shot. We are never coming back. I had the chicken piccata and it tasted like I was drinking lemon juice..... the first time I went I had the trio and the pasta tasted like it was reheated in the microwave. My husband didn’t enjoy the food either. The drink was better than the food. Sorry but I gave it two shoots and both was disappointing. Don’t waste your money and time here.

This old staple of the community still provide good value and comfort Italian food. The service was attentive if maybe a little rough around the edges. No real complaints and the price is right.

Classic and we had some delicious meals in the past. Everything was just ok until a mouse ran across the dining room floor. Waitress just thought nothing of it, even funny. It makes me question a few things. Went at a normal dinner time and room had a good amount of people. Kids spent the entire dinner looking for the mouse, they were entertained by it.

This is my favorite local restaurant for Waltham, MA. This is the first Cheateau that they created, so it has 3 parking lots! and many function rooms! Every holiday they decorate this little alcove in the hallway. This time it was decorated for St. Patty's day. A nice touch of ambiance. The food is excellent and at a very reasonable price. Even though this is an italian restaurant they have diverse menu options. I can bring my whole family and they enjoy it. One time i brought my vegan friend and they custom made his pizza tot he specs that he wanted. The beverages are top notch too, from basic Ice T, to Sangrias, to Martinis. I have never been disappointed with any drink there. My only complaint might be the changing of the menu for different seasons. I like to get Chicken Pot pie, or a Oriental salad. But I could always look online at their menu before i go. Enjoy your meal!

We have eaten many times at the Chateau and have always had great meals. We went on March 5th. The food was not as good as it has been during our many previous meals. The food was cold and bland. One person in our party did not like her meal at all and it was taken off our check. We were definitely disappointed.
