Decent food. Would come back again.

I have been here a few times and this place is fairly reasonable and makes for a nice night out. I normally have the chicken parm which is decent and plenty of food for dinner and a snack later.

I grew up in Waltham and have gone to the restaurant since I was a kid. My favorite foods are the toasted ravioli's, pepperoni pizza, garden salads with house dressing and the bread. The bread is to kill for, so soft. You can eat a loaf by yourself waiting for your food. But don't fill up on the bread because... More

Today my husband and I met some friends for lunch at the Chateau Restaurant in Waltham. There is a great variety of choices on both the lunch and dinner menus. All four of us had something different, and we all enjoyed our meals. The Italian bread that is served with all the meals is always fresh and tasty. There are... More

I grew up in Waltham but live in Oklahoma now. Whenever I visit, you can be sure at least one meal will be at the Chateau. Their Italian food is wonderful especially the bread. But don't discount their seafood. The fried clam platter is the best in the area. You should not leave hungry!!

My family have been going here for as long as I can remember. We frequently have events here (showers, anniversaries, birthdays, etc) and everyone walks away happy. The bread is great, the portions are massive, and the prices are usually pretty good. I feel like the food quality has gone slightly downhill over the years but I mainly go for... More

This will be shorter than my typical reviews, as other reviewers said it all. Basic Italian fare: flavorful, with very generous portions. Be prepared to 'carry out'. Huge variety of menu offerings also incl several chicken, fish, and steak selections. My favorite, if not enjoying their awesome chicken cacciatore, is to order the 'choose 2' (i.e., combo) option. I ordered... More

I normally would have just given them an average, because based on the menu, it was just a typical Italian offering in a diner style setting. But they did go out of the way to create and offer a gluten free menu which almost made me give them a very good. But the chicken parmesan and penne was just allright,... More
