Love this quaint place.

Our little favorite little restaurant in Old Metairie. As close to France you will be. Love the food, atmosphere and the wait staff are top shelf. And the cocktails are divine.

i have been to this restaurant a few times so I was excited to try the Monday special prix Fixe menu. The experience was lacking. This seemed like a cheap version of their regular menu. The usual great preparation was lacking, the food was lukewarm at best. I am sad to think that the usual quality of this restaurant is... More

We stopped by after the Saturday matinee of Motown the musical, the wife read about it in New Orleans magazine. Our server,James was very helpful and answered our many questions. The menu is short but with a good variety of French choices. We had for starters snails, a mushroom stuffed pastry and stuffed mirliton or chayote and the winner is... More

I've been going to this restaurant since they first opened in Kenner and now they're in Old Metairie. The food is wonderful and always good. Chef Jacque is the best. Wonderful food and the apple pastry is the best anywhere!

This little gem of a restaurant is a real find. The food is superbly cooked by a French chef from Lille, and the ambience in this tucked-away little restaurant is exquisite.

Chateau Du Lac is about 15mins outside New Orleans. I went there with a group of culinary students to learn more about New Orleans food businesses and off course have dinner there. We went to the $19.99 three course dinner on Mondays which is great value. I got the Coc au Vin - chicken braised in wine. It was very... More

Food that we had was all good, the overall experience was just ok. We had French onion & butternut squash soups, duck entrée, onion tart, goat cheese spinach salad, creme brule & chocolate molten cake. Problems included a tart that was barely warm, duck that seemed to be missing something season-wise & a less than attentive female waitress. Didn't live... More

My wife and I stopped in late Friday with no reservation. The restaurant was packed. We were offered a seat at the bar. My wife ordered the Tandoori Steak; and I had the french onion soup and a salad. Everything was great. The steak was cooked to perfection and was a large portion. My soup was perhaps the best french... More

As visitors to New Orleans, it is sometimes a gamble to try a new restaurant. Chateau Du Lac Bistro sounded like a delicious classical French restaurant, so we gambled. The 10 minute drive to Metarie was TOTALLY worth it! As we dined, not only did we notice the staff recognized most of the people - the customers recognized each other!... More
