Chez Francois is truly an experience, not just a meal. Plan on being there for several hours to enjoy the atmosphere and food. It is first class all the way. The food is extraordinary with the chef adding additional accoutrements between each course. The staff is totally attentive and truly professional. Very high priced, but for a special occasion I couldn't recommend it enough.

Chez Francois is exceptional in every way. The menu, wine selection, decor, and service are simply the best. We celebrated our anniversary by dining at CF, but we won't wait for a special occasion to visit again. Can't wait to return!

The hubs and decided to treat ourselves, so we made dinner reservations at the Chez. We were quickly greeted and seated. Everyone we encountered were friendly and attentive. I ordered a Quarry Hill Apple Cider Salted Caramel Martini, it was so delicious, like drinking pie. For an appetizer I had the pumpkin soup, which was served in a baby pumpkin. It was thick creamy and rich, I enjoyed every drop of it. My dinner entree was the evening's special red snapper. It was served with some sliced golden delicious apples on it and mashed potatoes with a butter sauce. It was a little sweeter but definitely enjoyed every bite. I finished off the evening with a belly ache and the bananas foster. We had a great meal. Service was perfect.

We live locally and have never splurged for a meal at the main restaurant. We did so on our anniversary on June and had a great meal. Was it the best I’ve ever had? No, but it was one of the best. The wait staff was superb and they paid close attention to every detail. We will return in another special occasion.
