I don't really get the previous "terrible" comment. We've been there about 10 times and each time we swear to go back. The food AND the service are excellent The prices are very reasonable, a cassoulet for $17, go find that even in France!!! The Chef is very personnable, he comes to each table make sure everythig is OK and escort you out after your meal. The wine list is very complete, lot of choice. The only downfall is, the place is small, tables are too close from each other therefore it gets a little loud. Not anything unbearable.

Chapeau is one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco, as it is to so many locals who frequent it regularly. Philippe and Ellen genuinely care about their customers and the service is excellent. It can get a little noisy on a crowded Saturday night, but that is part of the experience. The food is superb, always interesting and remarkably affordable. It holds up well to many far more pricey French restaurants in the city and has none of the snootiness. I would highly recommend Chapeau for an excellent, fun and affordable dinner!

A big disappointment. I came there on a crowded saturday. Found a nail in my food!!! The service is lame, overpolite and slow. Too many waiters for such a small place. The chef is an egocentric, loud and yet sympathic person due to huge amount of overpricey wine inhibited in his body. I do not recommend Chapeau
