Our chicken is organic free-range, our beef is natural & organic and our seafood is sustainably caught & delivered fresh. All our desserts are made fresh daily in our Lafayette location and fresh juices are pressed to order. This commitment to quality has put us on San Francisco Chronicle's list of the Top 100 Restaurants in the Bay Area nine years in a row.

Although Chow doesn't ever seem to change their menu, I can't complain because everything on it is excellent. Our family is particularly fond of their breakfasts, and their lunch/dinner Vegetarian platter is so outstanding that I frequently order it even though I am not a vegetarian. Their menu is small enough that you can order in 5 minutes without giving yourself a migraine, but large enough that everyone will find something that sounds good to them. You won't be disappointed with Chow!

Having eaten at Chow a number of times, I find the food to be hearty, but uninspired. The menu could use a major overhaul and updating as many of the items are a bit stale. Food presentation is OK, but the food is barely warm and not hot. Overall, you can do better for the money.

My wife and I have been coming to Chow for years. The food is consistently good and the front patio is an excellent place to enjoy a casual lunch on a nice Lafayette day.

On our recent visit, we ordered their fish tacos - the food was excellent and our server Megan was attentive and helpful.

A wonderful place for a casual lunch on a nice day!

Went there on a Saturday morning for breakfast on recommendation. The place was packed. Very noisy. Seating and Service was friendly and attentive, though. Our food came very quickly. Seems, that everything was pre-prepared. Quality was just average. Overall not bad but not very special, as well. Prices very high.

This establishment previously had good qualitity food, unfortunately it has lost its luster. Food arrives luke warm, over cooked hamburger, soup lacked taste. Very loud atmosphere.
