Our waitress was very good. Check on our table several times and refill our soda very quick. My pasta was delicious. Will return.

Waitress forgot about us multiple times. 40 mins to bring us our drinks( we only had one drink since we were completely ignored most of the night). Another waitress felt bad and took our order. Can't say all be back.

Where can a family of four get a great meal at a reasonable price? The Chateau! They're all great, but Waltham is the original which transcends just being a "locals" favorite into being a destination restaurant for many. The kids menu is fantastic, and the extensive dinner menu offers something for everyone.

It appears that they have new menus with higher prices and no specials on $20.00 bottles of wine like they used to have. My wife got a 9 ox. glass of wine which cost $15.00. Not the Chateau we used to no.

We decided to go the day after Thanksgiving as a result of my daughters schedule. I was very disappointed to find that there were so few wait staff that our poor waitresswas doing three things at once because there were so few wait staff on duty. We thought she coped very well considering, and tipped her well. The food was excellent as always, but to have to wait almost a half hour to order was a bit off putting. We will return, but hope staffing is adequate.

The chicken Parm tasted like rubber, to think and not f=cooked properly. The trio was overcooked

Some of the friend food was overcooked

This is where we celebrated our wedding rehearsal dinner and it was 45 years ogo, my wife is from Waltham

The last 3 dinners have been very similar

One of our daughters still lives in Waltham and we drove almost 2 hours for a meal that was very poor

We love the Chateau but we don’t go,to early bird as often as we used to ( once a week) since fried clams were taken off the menu and free desserts were discontinued.

Tuesday night "Kids Eat Free" makes a good value restaurant into great! Plus the portions are big resulting in food to take home and have for lunch the next day.

Terrific evening!
We had ten people and ordered many different appetizers and entrees. We also ordered wine and cocktails! Everything was delicious and our meals were delivered in unison.
Everyone had a terrific meal and the waitstaff was very responsive to us!

We told the waiter that we had a child with food allergies specifically nut and dairy. He even brought the manager over to tell us how serious they take it. Fast forward 20 minutes. His pasta shows up with meat sauce and a meatball with cheese in it! He apologized over and over but thankfully the child didn’t take a bite.

The foot and service at The. Hate Su are always excellent.
I don’t know why it bothers me but it does...you reuse the small Prosecco bottles. Do you put them through the dish washer , just rinse them out or just keep using them?

We've been patrons for years and this visit was disappointing. Our dinners were delivered when I was away from the table, my husband's meal was just lukewarm, and he described it as "acceptable but not delightful".

Four of us selected very different meals and all were excellent. Our server was terrific and I am sorry I forgot her name. We had a disappointing experience on our prior visit after so many years of going here. But that time all three meals were not good at all. So we are so glad we came back again because we almost did not, but the restaurant was convenient to a show where we had tickets nearby. So glad we came back! Our meals exceeded our expectation, and one of us ordered the special codfish item with mushrooms and angel hair pasta in a special sauce and said it was amazing.
