We've been coming back here for speical 6/5/2012

We've been coming back here for speical meals over and over -- for at least twenty years -- and the food is consistently excellent (authentic Paris bistro food) and the service is always super-attentive. Highly recommended. Try the escargot for an appetiser and the duck for dinner. Don't forget dessert! more

Good, but not for special occasions 4/6/2011

First off, their food is pretty much awesome. I recommend it highly. Maybe for a casual date or dinner on a birthday. more

Good, but not for special occasions 4/5/2011

First off, their food is pretty much awesome. I recommend it highly. Maybe for a casual date or dinner on a birthday. However, I hold contention with the labels "romantic" or "intimate" for this locale. The restaurant is so small that the tables are pretty much under the bar. My idea of a romantic date with my wife is not sitting eye level with hungry peoples asses while they stare at you waiting for y'all to finish and leave. I would give this place 4 or possibly even 5 stars if it wasn't so crowded. The staff was adequate, but the food... oooooh people, let me tell ya. The food is pretty awesome. In summary, definitely go here at some point, but maybe not to propose or for any anniversary. more

Fantastic Food 6/2/2010

I love this place, and I never seem to have a bad experience when I visit. Don't believe the poor reviews of this great restaurant. Be sure to try the set menu, which is such a bargain. The quality of the fish and meat is superb and the chocolate mousse...tres magnifique!! Pros: Menu du Jour, Wine List Cons: Parking, Crowded more

Excellent Country French Food 2/16/2009

Chez Nous is small but the staff is very attentive and the food is great. You do not find sweet breads on many menus but here they are wonderfully prepared. The escargot and the duck mousse pate are excellent. We did have to wait a bit but stood at the bar and had wine. Highly recommend. Pros: Excellent Staff Cons: Parking; Hilton hotel is a half block away and has available parking more

Good fixed price menu 11/9/2008

Cozy but busy restaurant with limited seating, so expect a wait. Fixed price menu is worth trying especially if you are going there for the first time. Choices of an appetizer, entree, and dessert. We had the tomato basil soup which was on the creamier side... the salmon and steak were cooked to perfection. The chocolate mousse was a little thicker than most, but good chocolately flavor. The crepes we ordered off the fixed menu for an additional $2, and it was a nice touch to end the meal. Although not too quiet inside, still definitely a good place to take a date out. Pros: fixed price menu Cons: wait time, limited parking (downtown) more

Not my definition of a French restraunt 11/7/2008

When dining at a French restaurant I don't expect plastic check-board table clothes. I don't expect the Chefs to be young kids that probably have no professional culinary experience. I don't expect to see Flan on the menu. My wife ordered a medium steak. It came out so rare it was bleeding. She also ordered ""Creme Caramel"" - it was overly sweet Flan! I ordered the Pate and it tasted like it came from a can. I ordered Salmon and it tasted decent but not much more. I would not return nor recommend. Find a better place to celebrate an evening or just stay home. Pros: Can't think of any Cons: Food more

Quite possibly the BEST MEAL I'VE EVER HAD.... 9/3/2008

I enjoyed every aspect of my experience at Chez Nous - atmosphere, wine, service, FOOD. My boyfriend surprised me by taking me there for my birthday. It's a nice place, but is a cozy, comfortable and unpretentious atmosphere, which we really appreciated. Plus, you don't have to know anything about French food to love it. Pros: Delicious! Comfortable atmosphere, great service, INCREDIBLE food (every single course), no wait on a Friday night! Cons: I can't think of any, honestly. more

Quite possibly the BEST MEAL I'VE EVER HAD.... 9/2/2008

I enjoyed every aspect of my experience at Chez Nous - atmosphere, wine, service, FOOD. My boyfriend surprised me by taking me there for my birthday. It's a nice place, but is a cozy, comfortable and unpretentious atmosphere, which we really appreciated. Plus, you don't have to know anything about French food to love it. We started with the Chevre chaud sur canape. Outstanding! The cheese was unbelievable and complimented so well with the greens in the center of the plate. The sliced French bread and homemade (out of this world) butter served throughout the meal was heavenly. We each got one of the 3-course entrees. For the appetizer course, we each had the tomato fennel soup, which was phenomenal. For our main courses, I had the grilled salmon in a garlic buerre blanc (best salmon I've ever tasted), and he had the steak option on the 3-course menu (can't remember the cut of the meat), but it literally melted in your mouth and was cooked to perfection. We shared a bottle of Cotes du Rhone Villages, which came recommended by a lovely French gentleman who from behind the bar saw us trying to choose the perfect wine for our entrees. He said this wine would go well with fish or steak, and it most certainly did. It was fantastic and was even one of the less expensive options. For the dessert course, we opted for the Profiterolles ("Two pastry puffs, filled with vanilla ice cream, topped with a warm chocolate sauce"). You may not think you have room for dessert, but after tasting it, you'd regret having skipped dessert -- perfectly sweet, yet light. The service was stellar. Our glasses were always full and we were constantly greeted by smiling faces willing and able to answer questions, but also let you enjoy a nice conversation without ever interfering. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect birthday dinner. It's most certainly going to be our go-to special occasion place. We only wish we could eat there more often. It is INCREDIBLE. Thank you Chez Nous! Pros: Delicious! Comfortable atmosphere, great service, INCREDIBLE food (every single course), no wait on a Friday night! Cons: I can't think of any, honestly. more

great lunch and bistro-style dinner 8/31/2008

I love this place. I eaten there for several years now and am always pleased. Its a great place to take people to when they are visiting from out of town. If you're looking for a pretentious atmosphere and overly-complicated food, look elsewhere. This place has simple, good food with a relaxed atmosphere. I love the soups, especially the mushroom soup. My favorite salad is the Salad Lyonnaise. I usually get the steak but the Meuniere is always great. The lamb chops are so simple and perfect every time. I also really appreciate that the waitstaff is relaxed and friendly. Its no wonder their are so many regulars that dine here (myself included). Pros: food, friendly waitstaff Cons: parking more
