If you’re hankering for Italian food, please, stay on Route 93 and keep going to the North End, it is not that much further, you’ll be happy that you did. The food here at The Chateau is tired. There are 8 chain locations in the Boston area, each restaurant is huge - quality here is not the goal. On this... More

After several recommendation from friends and relatives, my wife and I recently stopped by for lunch. Our initial impression of the facility was favorable and service was prompt and courteous. Unfortunately, our pleasant visit was short-lived when the food arrived. I opted for the "Winter Warm-Up Special," Yankee Pot Roast. When it arrived at my table the meat was so... More

The company we were visiting rented a back room and had a fixed menu, so the choices were somewhat limited. However, I had the seafood and it was great. One guy from Hawaii had a steak and it looked great. Service in the dining area was friendly.

First impression: the table was sticky, the silverware dirty, even the water tasted funny. Should of left at that point. Was with a party of 3. One got chicken parm, was very jarred sauce tasting. Another got a wilted/soggy salad, and I got steak tips. Very fatty and tasted like instant mashed potato. Very disgusted with the food and the... More

I ate at the Chateau Andover with a colleague while on a business trip. The restaurant was conveniently located close to my hotel. We opted to eat at the bar instead of sitting at a table and the bartender was quick with our drinks and very friendly. The food came out soon after our order, the portions were good sized... More

The food was fresh, tasty, and served in a timely manner by pleasant helpful staff. We enjoyed the dinner a stayed to have conversation, and never felt rushed. We found the fish to be fresh and well-prepared. Cheesecake dessert was good but not exceptional. Overall, would recommend to friends and family.

Restaurant has a great bar and keno, drinks are good. Lively crowd and good service. Food pretty much your average fare. Not really italian food, but red sauce, probably used for pizzas. Fish dishes are bland, if not friend. Nothing of the low fat grilled nature. Steamed broccoli is about the only thing not fried somehow. Like the crowd and... More

Congratulations to the Chateau for making a location with a long history a successful eatery. Pizza is pretty much the only thing on the menu which I've tried and is excellent. Other dishes I've tried have been average. This is a great place for large groups and families. The bar side has cool booths with TVs. Pricing is a little... More

Great place for drinks, large bar in the lounge. Food is pretty good but it's cheese heavy. Even the tomato sauce has cheese in it. Chicken wings are pricey for the amount you get in an order. Their signature scali bread is really good. Always a busy place.

Entrees were overpriced, over cooked and up appetizing. Service was ok, but when they're bringing you lousy food, who cares how quickly they do it? Atmosphere was 1970's- looking grungy. I would not go back here if you paid me. And..who names an Italian restaurant a French name?
