This is an upscale French restaurant. The food is tasty. The people who work here are top notch. If you're willing to pay the high price it is a lovely place for a night out.

This was our second time at Chevalier, and was as good as the first time. We celebrated a birthday with a group of nine. Service and food were excellent. It is pricey but you get a very memorable experience.

The food here was good and the service was not too bad. I think the wine list is ok, but a bit overpriced as are the cocktails. The prix fix menu delivered a nice sampling of flavors. Generally quiet, however one table near us got real loud and kind of spoiled the atmosphere for a short while. Definitely a place... More

I have never been in this restaurant and decided to have dinner here with a few close friends on a Wednesday night. I started with the Potato Leek Soup which was flavorful and excellent. Then we shared the Escargots de Bourgogne which was Burgundy snails in shell with butter, parsley & garlic!. Delicious. My main course was an outstanding Beef... More

The reviews on Chevalier have been mixed so I have held off reviewing until I had tried it at least three times. Third time was last week and the food was terrific. That's consistent with visits number one and two so I am going with five stars. Yes, the menu does not change a lot, and yes it is relatively... More

I have lived in Lafayette CA for over 17 years and have watched as Lafayette has attracted more and more restaurants serving more sophisticated palates. Chevailer is at the top of the list when it comes to fine dining in Lafayette. Chevalier has become a popular local restaurants for special occasions. It is pricey but worth the price to have...

We have been trying to feel the love since they opened many years ago. How he wins any critical or Michelin recognition is a mystery to us. The menu remains heavy and meat oriented, no noticeable homage a Ete (summer!) This time we started with stuffed squash blossoms (not crispy) had a black bass (pretty sure it wasn't - looked...

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Chevalier. It was a beautiful evening so we dined outside. Service was attentive and was paced nicely. We had the 3 course prix fixe menu. Everything was well prepared and delicious, including the Wild King Salmon. This restaurant is a nice little gem in Lafayette!
