The restaurant is located in an unfortunate place; but the inside more than makes up for the strip mall atmosphere on the outside. Beautiful and intimate setting, with tables not to close to one another, service exemplary, and an interesting menu. We were slightly disappointed in the food itself. It was well presented with large portions; but the quality of... More

I was there several years ago prior to the Chefs Table closing and enjoyed it, well last night we went back with the same people and we all thought it was even better. The appetizers were nothing short of spectacular and the main courses were all spot on. If your tired of the same ho-hum Italian or steak places, I... More

What a disappointment tonight. The server was the worst we have ever experienced. I have to say that previous owner's service was not the best but it should not be worse than before.

Not quite the same, but they're working out their kinks. Friendly waitstaff, but it is missing the old homeyness and coziness of the original Chef's Table and the Mrs.

My wife and on ate at this restaurant and entertained many guest here for almost 20 years. We developed a friendship with Claude and Dolores Bailles who live in nearby Oakland. (They met in unusual circumstances; he was a cook and she a bookkeeper at a hotel that was robbed, and the two of them were tied up by the... More

Any concerns about the quality of this highly-rated French restaurant might slip with new owners are unfounded: The Chef's Table has maintained the superb quality of food and coupled it with the kind of service that separates the good from the great. Every course was memorable. We started with mushroom soup and a special seafood (bay scallops, mussels, clams) soup... More

We had our last meal with Claude and family on Saturday night. Brought up a lot of memories over the years, as all 4 of us had been there many, many times. The restaurant was always in my top 1 or 2 two locally, and now the family is finally going off to a well deserved new beginnings, and a... More
