Lovely restaurant, very good food, very good service

We celebrated a birthday recently at Chapeau, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It's a tight space and very popular, so we could only be seated early. We took advantage of the prix fixe menu, and I chose the cassoulet - delicious to the very last bite. Service was very good, attentive... read more

Got here by 9:15 pm and it was still packed. Ordered the chef recommendation set dinner. All items were good, but what really stood out as excellent were the scallops with lobster bisque sauce. If I return... i will order scallops.

While I don't like heading to the Richmond, it's a nice little Gem in the area. The chef is quite interactive and makes it for a memorable experience. Check it out!

My husband and I had dinner here on Wednesday. The service was excellent, and the ambience was lovely. We had a nice corner table in the back and had the area all to ourselves for most of our meal. We split the Porcinini crusted Veal Sweetbreads that were excellent, and the beef filet that was delicious, although just slightly overcooked.... More

A full restaurant is always a good sign. This place was bustling, perhaps a little on the noisy side. Fabulous, witty, french waiter. Great menu and impressive wine list. Would definitely visit again.

Our son lives around the corner from Chapeau, we went when it first opened, considered it very good. In town for our anniversary he took us again. Wow... Chapeau had grown in so many ways. The food top notch, presentation solid. What impressed me this trip was the wait staff. So knowledgeable about what they were serving, wine suggestion, etc... More

We have been here everything we have visited San Fran and it continues to be a place we will come back to time and time again because the food and service is consistently wonderful. By the way the creme brûlée is ridiculously over the top fantastic!

I was on my own in SF for an interview and fancied some french cuisine, after hitting up trip advisor I made my way to Chapeau! The staff were great and the food even better. I had a foie gras special for starter followed by duck in Maple sauce and a Chocolate cake for dessert.

We have returned again and again to Chapeau! because it has consistently high quality food, served by a knowledgeable and competent staff, with a visible, friendly chef and a pleasant bistro-like venue. My husband and I with 3 other "foodie" couples all enjoyed our varied dinners, all of which were the 3-course, create-your-own prix fixe. My favorite entree is the... More

Chose Chapeau! based on reviews and was not disappointed. Seemed to be a popular spot for dates and/or small groups of friends. The restaurant is tight, but service was excellent and the food even better. Wine prices seemed very reasonable, and our entree, a large cote du boeuf with bone marrow for two, was incredible value to my mind. Escargot... More
