Down in the Delta it seems people really love their comfort food! It's hard to find things that are not breaded and fried or soaking in sauce. Chardonnay is a welcome haven for interesting dishes featuring fresh veggies, imaginative use of ingredients complimented by a large list of mostly California vintages. Temptations abound on the menu! My friend had two... More

I didn't realize there were still restaurants that allowed smoking. The food was decent, atmosphere a bit dreary, a great wine selection but all the customers who were smoking annoyed me. The circulation of stale air was overwhelming; needless to say, that will be my last visit.

With the name of the restaurant you would expect a better wine list. Boring would be the word to describe it. The food here is ok, for Memphis standards. The thing that really gets to me is I have been in this restaurant multiple times because I really wanted to give it a fair chance, and every time I was... More

It had been a while since I'd visited Le Chardonnay and I'm sorry for that. This place has excellent food, wine, and staff. It seems like time stands still while your enjoying your meal. I do plan on making a monthly trip there.

Have been to Le Chardonnay on several visits. Food is good and the atmosphere is laid back and fun. Great service and because they share the kitchen with the restaurant next door, you can sometimes pull things off that menu as well (if you have a good waiter/waitress). Great after work stop off place and you often run into some... More

Had dinner reservations elsewhere, but enjoyed a lovely glass of red in a cozy booth in front of a roaring fire. Perfect.

I've never actually eaten here, so this isn't a review of the food, but unless you smell like an ashtray and want to be around others who do too, don't bother. I had reservations here through OpenTable. My husband and I walked in and walked right back out. I couldn't even breathe it was so smoke-filled. Who wants to eat... More

I've lived in Memphis twice. The first time, this restaurant was located across the street along with its sibling restaurant the Bayou. I worked midtown so this place was a regular on our lunch rotation and a common early night stop for dinner or drinks. I moved away and came back and they have moved across the street. The first...
