For a Special Evening

Chantilly is an excellent french restaurant with outstanding food and service. The atmosphere is calm, elegant, and comfortable. It is pricey but the food is worth it.

Five of us had dinner on Mother's Day. Usually, restaurants fail on major holidays....not this one. Each course was prepared and served beautifully. The shrimp appetizer was beautifully seasoned and prepared; the steak au poivre was cooked perfectly and the accompanying vegetables were excellent as well. Dessert was delicious. Our waiter was very pleasant. Even the pianist was very good

I had never heard of it and have lived in the area for 50 years. The food was great and the wait staff was very friendly and fun. I would definitely return! We all loved it.

My friends and I decided to try this place which I didn't even know existed! This French gem is located on a busy Main Street. The building looked like a very large mansion that was made into a restaurants with different rooms with an upstairs. We sat in the main dining room where there was a fireplace. Upstairs has a...

This is the place that is for traditional menu, very professional staff, the owner on premises, excellent selection of beverages, a well established menu of sort of italian and french food, very un California dinning. The bread is marginal and does not fallow the menu items. For those that want NO adventure at all, like to be known as romantic,... More

I have been to Chantilly many times for business lunches and dinners. In its own building with a beautiful interior, Chantilly sets a stage for your meal that stands up well to some excellent restaurants in Europe that I have been fortunate enough to dine at. But it is, of course, the excellent food that makes you glad you are... More

I have been going to Chantilly since the 1980s. The restaurant was located in Palo Alto for many years. Chantilly moved to Redwood City (Near Atherton) in 1999. This is a classic formal continental cuisine restaurant. There is a high ceiling in the main dining room and the decor is elegant. Piano music accompanies the meals. If you are looking... More

Chantilly is a formal dining restaurant. I usually order the scampi and an interesting salad. I like both of them so much that Gus (owner) knows what to have ready when my husband and I walk in the door. The service is excellent AND friendly. Upstairs is a large room for a private party. Very helpful in time of family... More
