I came here because I love wine bars. The food was okay-- I had the salmon with duck confit gnocchi. Seemed expensive for what I got though. The wine was good. However, the atmosphere was dark and smoky, a bit dismal and dank. I came...More

Bad food and not cheap either. Was much better before it moved to it's current location. Resembles more of a dive bar than a bistro. Nice fireplace and cool stained glass ceiling, but that is about it.

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...More
