Very cozy; very charming; very French atmosphere. This is a 'dining' experience. Great for a 'date night' (my second visit); 2 couples, or several close companions. Its got the perfect clientelle and acoustics for genial conversations; you can actually speak in a normal tone and hear each other! Hope it never gets spoiled by large group diners! The food is delicious; enjoy it slowly to savor and appreciate. Service was friendly, informative about food preparation and prompt. It gets quite crowded and reservations are suggested for an early dinner; but we were able to walk in and grab an available table when we arrived at 8:30 one night.

The food and service at Chateau du Lac are excellent and very consistent. We go there at least monthly and have never been disappointed.

New Orleanians have so many restaurant choices. This is a good one, but more for locals in Metairie. There are better places to eat in the city. Service and food were fine, but not outstanding.

I always enjoy Chateau du lac. The food is good, but I always want it to be better. Don't get me wrong, it's good. Just not over the top.

It's refreshing to get away from the tourist spots in NOLA. This place delivers on the bistro style of food. I had steak tartar and duck confit. Both were well prepared and excellent. Nothing fancy here just good French cooking. Solid wine list. They even had a French style accordion player out front playing French music. Nice place.
