The tradition of Southern France have stumbled across the heartbeat of American South at Chateau West, where intimate placement and unpretentious cuisine charmingly fulfill the Francophile in all of us. Chateau West is a gem tucked away off West End; you could almost miss it if it weren’t for the chateau like exterior. The ambiance, service, and menu offering reintroduce you to the favorites you’ve forgotten-and there’s real charm in that. Everything old is new again. Find a table for lunch or dinner and order up some classic French dishes such as Chateaubriand, Duck Chambord, Beef Bourguignon. Determined to maintain the utmost in quality, fresh baguettes are made daily and served with real European butter.

    Nashville native here and Chateau West is one of my favorite restaurants in town and a go-to date night place. You may hear about a newer French restaurant in town that promises to transport you to a quaint bistro on the Champs-Elysees. Well, let me save you some time, gas and heartache. Make your reservation at Chateau West. We've never had a bad meal, the service is on point, and, unlike this new guy in town, CW offers a lovely, full-sized dining room with appropriately-sized tables for your party. The food is delicious, on point, and there's something for everyone on the menu...even the picky eaters. Ambiance, plenty of free parking, extensive wine list (by bottle and glass), delicious food, courteous and friendly servers. A+ all around. Bon appetit!

    Still a great classic French meal here. Been cooking from Julia Child’s book so wanted to revisit this place again- and it didn’t disappoint. Coq au vin perfect and the fondue app was very good. Seafood crepe was on par too.

    One of my best meals ever in Nashville. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We had several appetizers all were delicious especially the foie gras. Our entrees were all beautifully plated and tasted fantastic as agreed by all at our table of 6. The lamb was served medium rare and was perfect! The steaks rival some of the best steakhouses. The coq au vin’s medley of flavors in the sauce was marvelous. Desserts tried to steal the show. The strawberry Napoleon was large enough for two and was divine. Profiteroles were perfect for sharing. We will definitely be back for the wonderful food and service.

    We enjoy dining at Chateau West. The atmosphere is lovely and the service is spot on. For the first time though some of our ordered fish was not what we expected. One of our guests sea bass was a bit fishy and another guest Halibut was over cooked. The desserts were delicious, as they usually are. Our guest nonetheless enjoyed their dining experience. Thank you again!

    I love having a French restaurant in Nashville. We had the escargots, coq au vin, and the duck chambord. The escargots were amazing. I loved my duck and the potatoes and beans paired with it. My husband liked but didn't love the coq au vin - maybe a little too much broth and no mushrooms. Our service (provided by Oxsana?) was wonderful. The restaurant was full so a little noisy but we could still have a lovely meal and conversation.

    Celebrated my birthday with friends over a delicious dinner. Two of us had the Sea Scallops which never disappoint. The other two the Blackberry Salmon which was also perfect. We all had the chocolate cake for dessert which was wonderful. All of their desserts are a 10. Love the Crème Brûlée and the Pear. Our server, Oxanna, was so lovely and knew well how to interact w a teasing guest. A lovely French inspired atmosphere that’s bustling enough to feel fun but also quiet enough to have a conversation. Chateau West is our new go-to for consistency and great food.

    I love this small restaurant. The Quiche is always spot on for brunch. The filet of beef beautifully served (we had Oscar style) and the Halibut paired with rice and lovely ratatouille. Great wine list for a smaller scale non-chain restaurant. I try to make reservations for non-high traffic times, but always try and just enjoy the flow. Don't be in a hurry at this lovely restaurant, not because they can't serve timely, but you miss the whole point of dining here if you are in a hurry.

    We were seated at a table in the middle of the room, next to a large (~10) party. When we requested a table in a more quiet part of the restaurant, the waiter was gracious and immediately seated us at a booth tucked into the corner, away from other diners. The menu was varied, authentic French fare, the food absolutely flavorful and delicious. The service was a little slow, which we understood, as the waiter was attending to a very large party. However, the delicious food, unique seating, ambience, and kindness of the waiter, more than made up for some service delays. Do not come to this restaurant if you are in a hurry. Chateau West was the perfect gastronomic antidote for a frazzled, stressed couple who had just driven over 500 miles that day. We will be back!

    The food and service were excellent despite it being a very busy night. The steak was the most tender of any Nashville restaurant that I’ve had and served with potato soufflé and asparagus so a good value for the price point. My only complaint was that is was very noisy due to a large party. They need a separate room for large groups so as to keep a nice ambiance for small groups in the main dining room. Will definitely return!!

    Probably our last time dining there. Has been slipping each visit, and this time is just a big "meh" experience. Shown to a table in the corner right outside the bathroom and bar. We could hear the staff at the bar making snarky remarks about the customers. All in poor taste. We were sat down at a cluttered table, with lots of glasses messily strewn around. Rolled napkins just piled in the middle. A wilted rosé apparently left over from valentines day. A hole in the wall added to the sloppy atmosphere. Had to flag down someone for water. Then again for bread. Then again to order. Drinks were made wrong and sent back. Waiter couldn't answer basic questions about the food and said he would find out the answers but never came back with any information. Put food down in front of wrong person even though we raised hands to which entree went to what person. After a while we just had to laugh at how terrible everything was that was related to service and professionalism. Food was mostly good. Some meat items that were ordered medium came back with gristle. Saffron shrimp was lovely. But even the best tasting dishes cant be leveraged against the poor service. Too bad. We used to like going here.

    Valentine's day. No menu choices available outside of menu. Food was good as usual. Service was very poor mostly because it was extremely delayed. After 2 hours we were still on the main course and we had to leave to put children to bed.

    We had made reservations for Valentine’s Day and when we arrived we were told our table was outside where the temps were in the high 30s and the outdoor heater didn’t provide much warmth. The ambience was the sound of busy traffic on a main road. As we were brought to our table, the table wasn’t set/ready for guests. The tables were also to close together leaving no room for privacy. In between courses there was a wait of at least 30 minutes. The asparagus was warm at best, steaks were not fillet cut tender and under seasoned as well as the scallop potatoes. The dinner was a set menu of a 5 course meal however we were informed the menu had changed to a 3 course meal. When we received our check we noticed the price wasn’t changed accordingly to fit a 3 course meal. We asked our waiter about this and he did give us 10% off as a courtesy however a 10% discount doesn’t properly compensate a dinner where 40% of the menu had been removed. We don’t wine dine very often and wanted to do something special for Valentine’s Day so this was a special event we were both looking forward to and left quite unsatisfied and felt gypped. We understand how busy holidays are for restaurants so didn’t share any complaints at the time however when asked to leave a review we felt it best to honest.

    Recently spent one of the worst evenings of our lives in CULINARY HELL at Chateau West. For the sake of brevity, I won't go into every little problem, but in summary, it was absolutely the worst service ever coupled with very sub-par food with over-par pricing. We waited 45 minutes before we even got our drinks. At one hour and 50 minutes, we hadn't even received our salads. Only a hunt-down of the manager made that happen. And after that there were still no apologies or any concern to make things right. When our entrees were finally served, they were at flat room temperature. In summary - bad service and bad food, but most importantly, no one cared...not the staff and not management. Lastly, I will say that before posting this negative review, I sent an email to the restaurant to give them a chance to respond. Not surprisingly, it was completely ignored. There are other positive reviews here, so maybe it's not always so bad, but realize that if you go to Chateau West you'll be rolling the dice.

    We are normally very happy with Chateau West. They had a fixed menu on Valentine’s Day. It was very expensive for 3 courses. The menu actually gave more choices, but the waiter said we could only choose 3 instead of the 5. The restaurant was packed and not as quaint as we are accustomed to when we dine there.

    Filet was a horrible, sinew filled end cut. Couldn’t cut through it and was undercooked twice after sending the first back. Sides on both our entrees were lukewarm at best. Apps and dessert were good and service was great. Doubt we’ll ever go back.
