Revisted after 20 years!

First, it's a huge accomplishment to last in seasonal Cape Cod for 20 years (and this is actually their 39th) so they must be doing something right! Our absence for 20 years coincides with loss of expense account and retiring on the proverbial "fixed income" as Chillingsworth is renown for upscale... read more

Having eaten here before and enjoyed the food, we had called to reserved a table for four to celebrate a 66th birthday. We were given a choice between 6:30 or 7:30, but when we showed up promptly, we were told that our reservation was for 8:00 and we'd have to wait. The maitre'd insisted that we were in error, and...

I have eaten here many times and find early in the season (end of June and July) everybody is on their best behavior, wait staff are good, food is very good and then somewhere along the way through the summer things get somewhat lost. On 3 visits in 2014 they could not find my reservation (Oh, somebody forgot to write... More

We have been here many times,and it has been going down hill. We were told that a large party had come in at the same time our reservation was for. Like that meant we were'nt as important. We finished our wine and bread before our appetizer was served. Then the long wait for the entree. When it arrived,they said it... More

We've eaten at the restaurant in the past (last fall and this spring). This weekend we were at the Bistro for the last two evenings. Two nights in a row, amazingly consistent and delicious. We all had different entrees and appetizers, whether it was the oysters or the clam chowder, excellent! The duck, scallops and chicken, all outstanding! Service very... More

We made a 9 PM reservation online. We immediately received a phone call asking us to come earlier because the kitchen closed at 9. We were able to go at 8 PM. The service, food and atmosphere were all excellent.

Three of our group of five had been to Chills Bistro before (the casual -- and "lower price" -- side of Chillingsworth Restaurant), so they already knew we were in for a treat. I had the pork loin...the port was fine, but the spinach, faro and puffed rice side was the real star of the show. Delectable. So was my... More

Chill's Bistro in Brewster, MA (Cape Cod) is the casual side of the fine dining Chillingsworth (fabulous). We had been exploring route 6A (longest road of historic districts in US) and needed to end up in Chatham for a play at Monomoy Theater (Great) but had a problem with getting a reservation for dinner (lots of come and wait -...

I know this is "bistro" and not the fine dining next door, but our initial reaction to the staff and decor was cheesy and bizarre. We were greeted by a boisterous, cheerful, and somewhat unkempt hostess with a smile full of bad teeth. This didn't help our appetites. We opted not to sit outside because of the wobbly table and...

Our service was great and dinner delicious. The menu is pricey, but we felt the value was there. We did want to get back to Chillingsworth's French Restaurant, but ran out of time. We will for sure go back!
