    We very much enjoyed both the food and drinks at our lunch…when we got them. We thought the wait for both was overly long for the time of day (1:30). Our server was friendly and very efficient. She seemed a little frustrated also. It’s a beautiful space!

    The restaurant is attractive but a bit echo-y and loud to have a good conversation. The service was excellent and the food was very good. The wine list is good.

    Dined with another couple at 5pm. Wasn’t busy then, but filled up quickly. Never got too noisy. I had the crispy duck confit, which was delicious. The meat fell off the bone and the skin perfectly crispy. Has a good wine selection, but the French wines seemed overpriced. West coast wines seemed better value. The Sparkman cabernet was perfect.

    Reservations were late (10:15pm), but that just goes to show how much in demand this place is and for good reason. Every bite of every dish was delicious! From the Oysters, to the escargot, to the Salmon and the crème brûlée was to die for. Even the green beans were on point. Would definitely return and recommend!

    It is always high quality food, drinks, and service. Taylor was an amazing server she made spot on recommendations. Only one thing, the crispy skin and sauce on the Bronzino were great, but the fish itself could use more seasoning. The bass was perfectly cooked. Thanks

    I was hoping for a better experience, based on the reviews i have seen, but the cuisine left a lot to be desired. My wife's plate was cold. My couscous was served already mixed in the Tagine, instead of being served separately. The dressing in my Salad Nicoise had mayonnaise in it. The staff were nice, but poorly trained. They could not even recognize the plates offered on the menu when I ordered using the french name (even though the menu uses the french names).

    My wife and I went here to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. I was a little reluctant because the menu choices did not seem overly appealing to me. But, we agreed to go since my wife had eaten here and really enjoyed it. What a great experience! We were initially being seated in the middle of the restaurant near the kitchen. We asked if we could have a more quiet area of the restaurant since we were celebrating our anniversary. The host quickly found us the perfect table. Then, the manager came over with two glasses of Champaign on the house. The other drinks were excellent. We started with a first course of sandwich au fromage raclette. It is not a traditional sandwich and was delicious. I ordered the couscous with merguez style sausage. It was cooked perfectly. My wife chose the baked branzino (Mediterranean sea bass) which was hot, flaky and delicious. While the food was very good, the server was exceptional. She was patient and very knowledgeable. She gave us great descriptions and guidance based on what we were asking. For someone reluctant to go to this restaurant, I can't wait to go back for lunch. Please don't tell my wife she was right...as usual.

    This is the third time I have eaten at Mon Chou Chou and it was just as inconsistent as the last time. My guest’s steak was over cooked (ordered medium rare) and just slightly warm. She also asked for the extra topping to be put on the side. It never came and it was on the bill. My food was also barely warm. Not an impressive experience considering all of the hoopla about the resturant.

    Jade was our server. She was excellent as a resource on the dishes to recommend. She was attentive without being bothersome. The food was extraordinary. We shot down for a day from Austin - man I wish you were here! There's nothing like Chou Chou - stellar comfort authentic French cuisine that I have experienced in my own town. Loved the variety in the menu, yet easy to comprehend. Lots of dishes but they all stand alone while complimenting each other. This birthday dinner made me want to live forever so I could return there every year!

    Overall, I thought it was a bit of a letdown from what the other reviews say. I’ll note the service was fantastic, as good as I’ve ever had. The food though was just ok, and given the price and reputation, I expected more. The popular Raclette appetizer wasn’t much more then average cheese w ham and toasted bread. I ordered a steak which was good, but our other order was the couscous dish which was a major letdown. 90% of the dish was simply red sauce. Lastly, the crème brulet, was burnt to the point the top was almost inedible. Again, it wasn’t “bad”…but for the price, the other options in the Pearl stand out as much better value

    from start to finish our experience at Mon Chou Chou was 10/10. Xirida was our server on the patio and took the best care of us, they were attentive, knowledgeable and very kind! We had 4 courses for our meal and appreciated the attention to detail in all of our dishes. Desserts were fabulous and beautifully plated!

    The food was fantastic but the hostess was unfriendly and seemed annoyed that we were bothering her with our presence. Our server was a little condescending. Would go back but hoping management trains their staff to be welcoming and helpful. That would have made our experience so much more pleasant!

    Excellent service surpassed only by the food. We had a reservation and we’re quickly seated. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly, reminding us a few times during the meal that there was no rich and to take our time and enjoy the food and wine. Decent wine list with a solid variety.

    We loved both entrees, the linguini and steak, and our desserts, crème brûlée and Chantilly Cream ice cream. Ambience is lovely, music appropriate, and the mood is upbeat. The service wasn’t as attentive as one might expect, but due, I believe, to our specific server. We had to get someone’s attention for a second drink and also to order dessert, as she did not check on use during or after the meal.
