Chantilly is probably the sole remaining old world French restaurant on the peninsula. It exudes old world charm and presents that old world cuisine with consummate care and style. You really feel taken care of at Chantilly with its impeccable service, white table cloths, heavy silverware. The fish and pork dishes were good, hit the spot. But we couldn't recall... More

Chantilly can be considered an Oasis of sorts in a location that is dotted with plenty of choices. There is a good bar here, complemented by an equally good kitchen. The service is efficient, although not as polished as the higher end establishments in larger cities. The staff know the regulars and there is good banter between the staff and... More

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 went to Chantilly for a family birthday which was set up in the wine room. It was so impressive; 3 walls lined with bottles of wine! I chose a scampi appetizer and filet for my main course. both were wonderful! the sauce on the scampi was so good I had too much bread so I could scoop up all... 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
