Chouquet's (SF - Fillmore)

Went there last weekend, night of the 18th for a bday dinner. Had the prix fixe meal choice of appetizer, main course and dessert. I ordered sweetbreads for appetizer, chicken for main course (I would have ordered seafood, but I was hungry), and the chocolate soufflé for dessert. The place was half full and we were seated in the back near the bathroom as our party was a little larger, 7 ppl.

Service was ok, food came out in good time as we were taking our time eating. Sweetbreads were ok and the mushrooms really came out. The chicken was chicken. Everything I expected and I didn’t think I could go wrong with it. The skin was crispy which I liked. The soufflé was underwhelming and it was more like a small fudge brownie with some whipped cream on the side. I wouldn't consider it a souffle. It was ok, not great. The bill was expensive and not all people at the table had a prix fixe meal. Couldn’t figure out why, but it was a bday dinner and didn’t wanna buck the table to find out why. I think you can visit better restaurants in the area for the price.

Ahh..just searched board rules and saw why previous posts were deleted on a not so appetizing subject. Suffice to say that we had to bring it to management's attention. edited. Again, there are much better places to visit for the dough you might shell out at Chouquet's.
