We went with friends for lunch, and the garden was fully in bloom! So the atmosphere was simply gorgeous... Then we had this wonderful meal, were the food and service were absolutely superb!

After 30 years and new owners, the Chanticleer remains special and an enjoyable evening --especially if you are able to dine in the garden. Despite the absence of the original French chief and owner, the food remains remarkably good.

This restaurant is worth the ride. Ambience is very special. Multiple dining rooms, quiet and soft romantic colors and garden. For a special dinner for two four or six this is an ideal place. The food is very good but not the best on the...More

The Chanticleer is one of our usual stand-bys. Dependable and beautiful. This year, while the food remains top notch, the experience was colored by a wait staff that clearly wanted us in and out as quickly as possible - even though there were empty tables...More

We have been here many times, but last night reached a new low. We knew it would be expensive. What we didn’t expect was the noise level and two of the three waitstaff not speaking English. My wife and I split an entree of Halibut,...More

Siasconset is drive or long bike ride away, but it’s well worth it just to dine at the historic Chanticleer. The food is gourmet and the setting is elegant. On a nice day, be sure to sit in the garden.
