"I have not been to Chou Chou for over ten years and kept wanting to come back. It was sensational then and I wasn't disappointed this time either. We ordered from the Dine about Town prix fix menu: mushroom raviolis and onion soup for appetizers, beef bourguignon and pork for main course, and floating island and chocolate/almond tart for dessert. Everything was so delicious and at $40 for each meal, I thought is was well priced as well (the servings were pretty generous) . The restaurant is very small, and the tables are very close to one another and cramped, so keep that in mind if you prefer some privacy with your dinner. Can't wait to go back."

"So-so
I wanted to like this place; I really did.
Lunch started off well with delicious fresh bread. It was kind of so-so after that. The French onion soup was not bad. What followed was their crêpes.
These are not the breton style crêpes made with buckwheat, but made with white flour. The lamb crêpe was not bad, but the salmon crêpe was just awful. This was not smoked salmon, but a very fishy, oily tasting salmon. Worse, it was smothered in melted CHEESE. I can't imagine ANYONE thinking melted (Monterey Jack?!) cheese and salmon was a good idea. Trust me, it's NOT!!! It was a cheesy, greasy fishy nightmare. I could not finish it, and it was a HUGE portion.
We had a tarte for dessert, it was sweet, but flavorless and forgettable. I will say that the chocolate mousse was GOOD: rich, chocolate, and a good portion.
Service very friendly, unpretentious French staff.
This place could be a gem, needs a bit more work.

"The food is good, but the ownership-chef is a bit too controlling. He gets in the way of his charming waitstaff and the dining experience itself.
AND, though less than a party of 6, they added an 18% tip onto our check. I used to frequent this restaurant - no longer!!"

"I'm almost reluctant to tell you how wonderful this little place is because it's already booked up on a regular basis. I love the tiny window table behind the door curtain! The food, though, is what is key here: definitely not a place where pseudo-ambience eclipses real food quality! I've never had a bad meal, and my guests inevitably declare that they will go come back, with or without me!"

"I went for lunch with a friend who just had knee surgery and she was on crutches. The restaurant was less than a quarter full, and our reservation was for late afternoon, but we were only given the choice of sitting at the tables for two. A larger table would have been nice because my friend had crutches, and because it was not crowded at all. That was not an option for us.
We had to wait about 30 minutes for our food and our server was very apologetic - apparently the sausage was hand made, which lead to a longer prep time. It was well worth the wait. Our food was delicious.
The front door of the restaurant does not close easily, and because we visited on a very cold, windy and rainy day the door kept blowing open. So, the temperature of the restaurant was not very comfortable.
I've been to this restaurant a few times over the years and this experience was very similar to the other visits: good food, slow (sometimes indifferent) service, and a room that is about 5 degrees to cold."

"The quality of food for our party of three was quite mixed. Hangar steak was burnt, the sole was excellent. The wine list is balanced and good value, but because of the layout, hard to navigate. Desserts were OK, perhaps we expected more from a French bistro. It's worth a try, but I am not sure if we will go there again."
