“Christmas Party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Chant illy really knows how to get it right. The food is fantastic, the service even better. Prime rib was cooked to perfection, the lobster ravioli is a do not miss however it does have quite a bit of garlic, but that's ok in my book. The tiramisu is also one of the best in the Bay Area, and I tend to be a tiramisu snob so it is a good one. This place can be a bit pricey, but they make up for it in quality and service.

“Traditional formal dining and 5 star cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Have enjoyed this restaurant every time I am on the Peninsula. Gus the owner is warm and welcoming and presents a beautiful red rose to the ladies upon departure. But apart from this enjoyable civility, the food is
beautifully prepared, especially the Duck a l"Orange. If you like your duck crispy, ask for the the sauce on the side - the same with sweetbreads. My favorite table is by the fireplace. If you want a romantic spot with delicious traditionally prepared continental food, with five star service, this is a great choice. While all of the servers are well trained and accommodating, my favorite is Andy. At a time when civility and gracious hospitality are difficult to find, this restaurant is a breath of fresh air!

“Quiet, Subdued, Old Fashioned Ambience for the Older Clientele”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Want to have a quiet romantic dinner with live piano, unassuming service away from the noisy bars/restaurants? Then Chantilly is the place for you. The food was superb, the surroundings were romantic, with dimmed lighting, chandeliers, large floral arrangements and a red rose for the ladies on departure. The food is classified as French/Northern Italy and the varied menus reflected this. Presentations were well designed and the food prepared exactly as ordered. Leave room for dessert.

Reservations by telephone only.

“A classical special restaurant for a special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My husband and I went to Chantilly for our 35th wedding anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed. The ambiance is elegant, the service very good, the food excellent. The high ceiling, carpeted floor and fabric wallpaper keep noise levels down, which is an important criteria for us when we dine out. Their calamari steak with lemon butter is fork-tender and simply delicious. My husband had a perfectly prepared fettuccine with a generous serving of large prawns, scallops and a light basil sauce. We split a salad (no charge for splitting) and the dark chocolate dessert was melt-in-your-mouth perfect. We will return on special occasions. Chantilly has a nice touch of giving each female diner a long-stemmed rose (sans thorns, of course).

“Overpriced mediocrity ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Dined here ... food (smoked salmon, Dover Sole) were cooked well.
Service was attentive. Decor needs serious updating.
Family near us brought their two 5 year old. Like huh? Thanks. Not.
I'm sorry, but I am used to paying pricey meals but $16 for a glass of house wine is just [--].
I will not be back to get fleeced.
