Maybe it was a bad night? Or has Chantilly lost its master chef or changed hands? We noticed the quality has dropped on several counts. What used to be an elegant restaurant offering impeccable service and consistently flavorful French classics was quite disappointing. Food: I was rather disappointed, our Caesar had flavorless, pre made looking croutons and the oily dressing... More

This is a special occasion restaurant. We went to celebrate a birthday or mother's day and were not disappointed. It's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for! Excellent French and northern Italian cuisine. Both our waiter and the hostess were warm and welcoming and willing to chat - if that's what we wanted. And that's the attitude... More

Salmon was done perfect. If not done right, it could be "fishy". Main lobster ravioli not only looked great, also delicious. Baby spinach salad was great. I loved their tiramisu; therefore, the portion was too small. I have been at this restaurant for many years. Other dishes such as beef short ribs are highly recommended. Nice atmosphere and excellent service.

Chantilly is an elegant and fine dining French restaurant that serves classic cuisine. Great for special occasions and for parties.

Chantilly is a lovely, elegant restaurant in the "old school" style. it's food is wonderful northern Italian with a touch of French added. The decor is peaceful and tasteful. The service is friendly and professional(black tie'd waiters who have been there for years). The wine list is excellent. it's simply one of the best restaurants on the Peninsula

Have had the duck, sole, etc, all very tasty and nicely prepared. What blew me away one visit was the creme brûlée. It came with about 6 different PERFECTLY RIPE fruits. The sweet taste of the fruit mingling with the rich, neutral taste of the creme brûlée was one of those wondrous moments of epiphany in my lifetime for me... More

I've been going to Chantilly II ever since Chantilly I closed in Palo Alto many years ago. The menu is classical continental, the food excellent, not pretentious, and definitely not nouveau cuisine. Gus and son, Ali, are just 2 of the nicest people in this business and it is hard not to mention how accommodating they can be. Excellent wine... More

Our friends hosted ~30 people here for a party in a private room upstairs. I think everyone was very impressed by the excellent food, drinks, and service. I had the wasabi-crusted tuna appetizer, Caesar salad, poached salmon, and tiramisu, and they were all wonderful.
