Cafe Chloe was around the block from Mudville Flats Guesthouse where we stayed. We arrived just in time for Happy Hour which begins at 3:30. My husband and I shared the steak tartare which was excellent. We went back for breakfast the next morning, which was also delicious. My husband ordered the... read more

This intimate corner bistro is absolutely charming in every way. Perfect for a romantic dinner or brunch outside. Classic French cuisine served in an informal atmosphere, but with such attention to detail in the decor and the presentation of the food.

We had a lovely meal here. We started with the beet salad which was just beautiful and tasted amazing. I had the duck confit which was nice and my husband had the mussels and pomme frites. The service was extremely friendly and our waiter was nice enough to recommend some places to go after dinner.

I had a lunch with my friend. The decor in the restaurant was good and it would be comfortable to have lunch at the terrace area on the warmer days. I had a Macaroni & Pancetta Gratin and it was delicious. The female server was friendly and her manner was comfortable. This restaurant is recommendable.

I went here with family and friends following a performance by San Diego Ballet at Copley Symphony Hall. A friend if mine loves Cafe Chloe, so I had high expections. While it is a casual cafe, the food and wines are very nice, and I was not disappointed. Service was excellent, even though the cafe filled quickly for an early... More

Tonight's meal was AMAZING. We did not have the intention of having dinner, but I am so glad we ordered. The fromage plate had fresh, warm, honey comb from Savannah (my favorite), a cheddar, a creamy bleu cheese, and a Brie. It also came with a delicious compote of cherry, currant, apricot, cranberry, and fig. The baguette that it came... More

I dined at this beautiful cozy French restaurant earlier this month with my friends. Our meal was incredibly delicious and our server Nate was amazing! He did an excellent job at describing the dishes and helping us pair the perfect wine with our meal. I will definitely be back! Thank you again Nate for such a perfect dining experience.

I went with my mother and sister to have breakfast at Cafe Chloe, as it was recommended by a family member. I had a parfait and a lavender lemonade. My mom and sister got more lunch type foods, and we had no complaints. Adorable atmosphere and good service.

I was in San Diego for a conference looking for a good meal that was both unique to the area and not outrageously priced. Cafe Chloe was perfect! I could have eaten here three times with the selections from the menu and likely been happy. The steak frites, duck confirm, salmon, and pork all looked amazing. In the end, I... More

I love this little restaurant and I know others too; I live downtown and often help tourists find what they're looking for and have directed more than a few who were looking for Café Chloe. It's a pretty little place, the food is good, nice place to take a date, but I go mostly for breakfast which is nothing too... More
