We love this place. Our daughter discovered it several years ago when walking by. She knows my husband and I, who live in Massachusetts, love French food so we tried it on our annual visit and have gone there every year since when we visit her. We always get the high table by the window next to the bar. The... More

It was a great family birthday dinner for four. The restaurant has been recently updated, clean, warm welcome upon arrival and offer a very comfortable setting! If you are a hearty eater, you won't be disappointed. The portion is very generous, especially for French cuisine. We chose to go for the three course meal. The menu offers a great selection...

Third time at this restaurant and I live in New York! And originally from France. The owners are amazingly friendly, the atmosphere is great and the food out of this world! I wish they had a sister restaurant in New York City !

We just flew back in from visiting Cahors and Paris, France and we ended in Chapeau for my partners birthday and had a fabulous experience. There were 6 of us. The food was fabulous (great mussels, beef, pork, ratatouille, lamb). I had the skate which was too greasy and the foie gras was too soft. The foie gras was still... More

When we arrived there were only 4 people in the restaurant, but the hostess seated us right next to two gentlemen. With no background conversation from other tables, we could hear everything they said and they could hear everything we said. Why not seat us elsewhere? The food was good: seared foie gras excellent; skate wing very good. The french... More

The restaurant was packed by 6:30pm. Menu only had a set menu with a choice of 3 or 4 courses. I inquired about ala carte... More

Had a nice meal at Chapeau. They had pre fixe menus and choices are either 3 or 4 course meal. I had the fois gras for appetizer(excellent ) , the scallops for my entree (really good) and the profiteroles for dessert. The profiteroles were ok. The boyfriend ordered the French toast and I highly recommend that. They also gave a... More

A group of us (8) came for dinner on a Friday. We had a great time. The service was excellent, all staffs we interacted with were friendly, courteous, and professional. We had the 4-course dinner and it was very good. Highly recommended.

We shop Chinese groceries in the Clement area. This past Saturday we were looking for something not Asian and came upon Chapeau. We walked in to request a reservation and was able to snatch a table for three with a time to be about an hour later. It was nice that they were able to squeeze us in at 6... More
