    After the experience today, I do not think I would ever go back to a Chevy’s. first off the parking at this location is atrocious considering all of the spaces are designed for tiny cars and anything more than a small sedan either won’t fit or will take up multiple spaces. Then, the first impression by the host stand is you are left, standing there, waiting for quite some time until somebody actually comes up to recognize you and seat you. Service itself is quite disjointed in that the servers don’t recognize tables in the order in which they are seated and instead bounce around with no particular rhyme or reason. Things like food come out random intervals with appetizers being delivered after entrées. utensils being brought to the table after the food is delivered. Refills on beverages were not offered including the margarita. Plus the food itself is truly just mediocre at best assuming that what you order is actually available and they’re not out. I did speak with a member of management who did take the appetizer off my bill however, I would’ve gotten that already for free through over award from the loyalty program. This is a restaurant that needs quite a bit of work.

    The place was dirty. The seats cushions are filthy and ripped with the stuffing exposed. The table was sticky with an extremely unpleasant odor. The bathroom was extremely dirty and the waste baskets over overflowing with garbage. What a disgusting place. I’ll never go back!

    Come here for the drinks NOT the food. Food was cold and gross. Ordered steak and it was BLUE when it arrived and too salty to eat even if it was cooked more. Enchiladas were somehow dry and tasted freezer burnt. Chips and salsa are great and so are the margaritas

    As the place is cavernous, the noise level is extremely high, so much that you also have to speak loudly to the person you are sitting next too at the same table. The place needs a good cleaning and maintenance. The restrooms were in poor shape and certainly aren’t looked after hourly as they should be. The kitchen had food and garbage on the floor everywhere as it could be seen from the outside. It has potential to be a great place. It sits right on the water, with terrific views. Instead, its worse than a high traffic mall food court.

    All day happy hour on Sunday and everyday from 3 - Close. While they did get busy while we were there we never felt neglected. Ordering from the happy hour menu is value! The overall bill was probably $50 dollars less than ordering everything separate. The view of the water is amazing! Only negative is that the bathroom was disgusting, and the service really slows down when they get busy.

    We came to Chevy’s for my son’s birthday. We happened to be there during a 33 year celebration of Chevy’s so there was a party atmosphere! Things started out great, our waiter was super friendly and kept the chips coming(my son’s favorite)… took our order and then that’s when it all started to fall apart….. They were busy for sure, there was a live DJ… music was awesome and fun… everyone that works at this restaurant seemed to be working that night…. Unfortunately though, they all seemed to be too busy taking selfie’s under the ballon arch to actually help any diners…. Our food finally arrived after a very very long wait… but no silverware… we asked for some but we were ignored… asked someone else and they said our server would bring them… but no sign of him…. Finally I got up and asked the 8 people at the hostess station for some silverware… everyone looked at each other like they didn’t know what to do…. I finally asked the girl making the tortillas for some, she happily obliged… By now our food was cold.. so it was spoiled… It also had obviously been made for a while and sitting under a heat lamp because everything was like rubber… My son who turned 12 was enjoying himself, so we didn’t complain… Took 2 bites and then didn’t finish the rest it was absolutely inedible…. Hopefully someone in management sees this, because your staff obviously need some major retraining in basic skills…. Too bad…

    I used to love coming to Chevys but this last experience ruined it for me. We live in Kentfield, and drove to Emeryville 40 minutes away so my kids could experience the awesome food with chips and salsa. Unfortunately the service and cleanliness of the restaurant was so poor I don’t think we will be back, and regretted this trip. We were seated without flatwear, the booth seat was torn and worn out on both sides, the drink special menu was stained and filthy looking, the doors were sticky. Our food took 25 minutes to arrive and we never saw our server once that entire time to ask him for drink refills and more chips and salsa. after the food arrived, I had to ask for flatwear, refills, tortillas, and the server got annoyed I was asking for so much stuff. Pretty crazy. Not sure if it was just this location, but Chevys has a problem that needs addressing.

    Chevy’s is always a great fallback Mexican restaurant. Great chips (nice, thin, and crispy) and usually fantastic salsa, but tonight’s was not good. Too salty and too much smoke flavor. The fajitas were exceptional, though!

    Had a reservation at and sat at 4:30 and ordered right away at 4:35. Asked the server if he could check on food at 5:00 as it has already been 25 minutes for for anything to show up including the chips and dip??? And then at 5:10 asked to see a manager and he was not eager to help and brought out the food we ordered last after our apps??? Got up and walked out because this place is a joke. Also their other manager was having a meeting with a new employee about his bad performance in front of all us guests. This place is so unprofessional what can you say it’s just chevys

    Service was extremely slow, even when it wasn’t that many guests in the restaurant. Had to wave down for service which isn’t preferred. They “didn’t” have guacamole or watermelon margaritas. I sat in a location where the sun was setting and the sun was straight beaming on me. They didn’t offer to put the shades down. My son’s food came out after the grown ups food came out , which I find opposite and wrong. Also mentioned was there for a bday in our table, but they didn’t show any care for it, but they gathered all the workers to sing happy bday to another table…. I’m extremely disappointed about the service. The only good thing I like was the food, the food tasted great. Drinks were whatever. They need to work on bettering the service and caring about the customers.

    Our anniversary. The service was terrible. I booked a table, but it took 20 minutes to seat us. There was no huge line or anything like that. Our server was slow and non-existing. Our food came out very late. We got our appetizers first which took 25 minutes to get. Our entrees took 45 minutes to come out to our table. We used to go here all the time, but this was our first visit back to this location in Emeryville in 7 years. Unfortunately it will be our last time because the food and the service was so bad.

    Not the Chevy’s I remember. Really disappointing service. Waitress first approached table with “can I help you?” Which was a little awkward. Then she disappeared. Maybe it was her first day. Took 20 min for drinks to arrive and took 35 min for food to arrive. We never saw the waitress again. They were all out of guacamole, which is bad news in a Mexican restaurant. All of the tables around us were in the same boat, desperately trying to flag down anyone for service. It was super hard to even get the basics. We didn’t initially get water for 10 min after asking twice. We had to ask for place settings and napkins 3 times before they were brought. Food was decent, but witnessing the operations was really sad. I mean I guess they’re understaffed, but come on, where’s the manager?. Alfonso essentially took over our table at the very end, said he couldn’t find our server and brought my daughter some ice cream. He deserves kudos for taking initiative.
