Recent Chapeau! Reviews

gave an overall rating of 5  out of 5 stars on March 30, 2001 @ 8:22 AM

 It's the gem of the Richmond district in S.F. IT's been open for nearly four years, owned and run by Philippe and Ellen Gardelle who are on-site every night closely supervising everything, chatting at tables, racing out the door after you to say goodbye if somehow you have managed to slip out of the tiny room while they popped into the kitchen. The food is fantastic and includes regional specialties from southern France (Philippe is from Toulouse). The prices are incredibly reasonable for the quality of the food, the service, the wonderfully friendly atmosphere and attentive service. Philippe has an enormous and fabulous wine-list...and there are always excellent and interesting wines by the glass. There are also 3 prix-fixe menus each night (4 course at about $28 -- including a vegetarian prix-fixe menu.) The room is small and tables are jammed in...but there is a wonderful atmosphere and the proprietors WANT you to relax, linger, enjoy your meal in true French style. I take everyone to Chapeau! (be sure to make reservations at least a day in advance). People from all over the world have loved it and everyone has come away feeling that they have been welcomed by new friends. I regard this restaurant as an extension of my home, that is how welcoming, relaxing, pleasant it is.

 The most wonderful food on Planet Earth. Chef Ron is a God. The 9 course chefs tasting menu is a work of art. I have dreams about the seared fois gras. You pay for this kind of pampering but it is worth it! The service is flawless, the food divi ...

 I feel that this small french restaurant provided the greatest meal for the money. The prixe fixe menu is a great deal and offers great food. My wife and I both found the service to be superb, which is sometimes unheard of in a french restaurant.
