Chateau West Ratings and Reviews

Met a few friends for lunch and a usual was pleased with the service and food. I work on West End so the location is perfect to meet friends for lunch. Also, close to the interstate which also a plus for those who are driving-in. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch and although I have never had dinner here, I am sure that the experience would be equally as good. Would definitely recommend Chateau West!

Exceptional French cuisine. The restaurant has such a quant, relaxed environment. The wine list is great the menu options were amazing. We started off with a bottle of Chardonnay and different cheeses to try. And for main courses I had the seared salmon and my fiancé had the pork. Definitely will be coming again to this restaurant

Wanted to go out for a special meal to celebrate the new year. Food was great, staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend it. The only issue was I asked what something on the menu was and the waitress did not know but I took a chance and ordered it anyway and I'm very glad I did as it was delicious!

We were looking for a quiet, intimate setting to have a special Christmas-Eve dinner. Chateau West was the perfect setting for such a night. Once you get inside, you'd never know the restaurant was nestled between a gas station and a small business strip center. They've done such a good job of creating an interior space that transports you to another locale. The service was attentive, but discreet. The menu has all the options you'd hope for in a French restaurant and the chef delivered. Portion sizes were reasonable and the trio dessert sampler is a must to share after the meal.
Chateau West may be my new favorite restaurant in Nashville.

I hesitate to state this but this is the best kept restaurant secret in Nashville! I love taking business associates here for a sophisticated fournet lunch that is reasonably priced. The service is excellent too.

Special occasion and the food was special. I had the duck. Very satisfying.
The appetizers were very nice. Fondue. Yes. Foie gras??? Goose. This was great.
May have missed the spelling but not the critique. This was a bang.

Decided on Chateau West for a date night with the wife. We were both pleasantly surprised with the quality of food as well as the wine list. I definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice night out, which was a welcomed change from the trendy, hip restaurants that are now everywhere.

We were driving from OKC to Knoxville. We have decided to stop by Chateau West in Nashville. It was worth it. Friendly staff, nice wine list, excellent service and delicious food. The escargots and onion soup were yummy.
I will go back

The mashed potatoes side was over salted. The cream of mushroom soup as the Soup DeJour was not our favorite but they did replace it so positive marks for that.
Other than that our meal was great from the fondu to her Salmon and my Duck entrees.
Plan to spend at least $100 for wine, apps and entree + tip. Our service was nice, allowing for us to dine without a hovering server. We didn't have dessert but the other tables looked good with theirs.

I made reservations on a whim for my son and I after hockey practice. I had never eaten here before so I said why not. When we arrived there were only about people dinning and they were leaving. I feel no one was there due to the horrible weather that evening. We were promptly greeted and seated. I ordered a glass of wine from their nice array. We had escargot for an appetizer. It was okay, not great, not bad. I thought it was a little over cooked. My son had the duck and I the beef burgundy. Both came out perfect. We then ordered the Crepe Suzette which is prepared table and was awesome. I really feel our server was the best part of our meal. She was very polite, helpful, attentive and personable.

The food we tasted was excellent and allowed us a wonderful anniversary celebration. They were out of a few things by the time we arrived (8:15p), but there were other good options so we didn't mind. Especially loved the fondue, and the seafood bouillabaisse!

OMG! Don't let the outside fool you. Excellent food! Had the Chateau filet. My husband had the lamb shank. Both were to die for. I was so full but had to try the profiteroles. YUM! Loved everything about it. Service was not rushed and we enjoyed every course. Staff is very nice. Wonderful place for an intimate dinner. Will definitely come again when in Nashville. Thumbs up!

The restaurant is truly a charming place - very romantic. I will say that this may have been an off night for them, but the escargot not only came out cool but the butter garlic sauce was only OK. There was just something missing from it. When the French onion soup came out lukewarm, that is when we said something to the waiter. They did make it right, but it was interesting that we were one of five tables in the restaurant at the time, so I will leave it to the readers to decide how to hot appetizers came out lukewarm. When they reheated my soup the flavor was quite good. The Cobia was a special and was excellent, but the sliced potatoes underneath were so heavily salted they were almost inedible. If we go back, I would stick with the salad, French onion soup, and take a swing at the beef bourguignon, but that may not be for quite some time.

Chateau West is a favorite of ours since it first opened a few years ago. The menu is basically French with little change you know what to expect. Seafood was ordered and we were not disappointed. We tried a lovely goat cheese and fig fondue. Bread was so fresh and butter so good too. I had a dry white wine recommended by our waiter and it was perfect. Chateau West never disappoints.

AMAZING! My wife had been there for lunch. We were really looking forward to it as we have extensive restaurant experience, but very little French opportunities in Nashville. Chateau West EXCEEDED our expectations in every way. We made our next reservation before leaving that night. There are SO many great choices that it will take numerous trips to explore them all. A true "sleeper" in the Nashville restaurant scene. I can't wait to go back.

We sat outside for brunch and enjoyed the patio to ourselves. A little noisy with traffic but our choice to sit outside. Service was great. Ratio of waitstaff to guests was perfect. Food was only fair, quiche was full of cheese but crust was chewy instead of flaky. Eggs sardou was bland and didn't care for bechmel sauce. Potatoes on the side were bland and dry. Vinaigrette was bland on salad. Seems like menu hadn't been updated in awhile.

We LOVE Chateau West as it is very close to our home & the staff is friendly and professional.
Our guests thoroughly enjoyed being able to sample some new and different French wines by the glass and found one they especially liked in doing so!
We were there on a Wednesday evening so there was not a lot of patrons therefore the noise level was relatively low. On a weekend night when they are full and busy, the noise level can become loud so not a great weekend "date" destination.
Price point is fair for the cuisine offered.
Do visit and enjoy!

We were in town for the Adele concert and I wanted a nice brunch place for Sunday afternoon. I picked beautifully. The service was excellent, the food perfectly attended, and the restaurant, busy enough for people watching, but, not so busy to be uncomfortable.
I would recommend for any foodie looking for a special place for lunch or dinner.

My friend and I celebrated getting together after several years of not seeing each other. The restaurant was not crowded and the service was fine. We found our mutual favorite bottle of wine, Vouvray, much to our delight.
My sea scallops were tasty but minimal (4 scallops for the dinner portion.) The manager asked about our dinner and treated us to dessert to compensate for the dinner.
I would return; people are friendly and the atmosphere is chic.
