Reservations needed for Cafe Chloe

Thought we would have a late dinner (8:30) after meeting. There will be four of us next Wednesday night. I understand that they do not take reservations. Do you think we will be seated right away, or are they very crowded on a Wednesday night?

      8:30 on a Wednesday should be fine. We usually eat there around 7 PM midweek and have never had a wait. Friday/Saturday, are a different story...

        Try to get one more person for your dinner and you can make a reservation for their large table

          Attention San Diego Restauranteurs: THIS is how you do food and service.

          We had lunch at Cafe Chloe today. The greeting was pleasant and welcoming. The service was spot on; efficient and professional, but not rushed. Our server was warm and friendly without being intrusive. The ambiance was like a tiny sliver of Paris in the East Village. We felt relaxed, well cared for, and though CC used organic ingredients, the staff does not force a holier than thou speech about their organic chops on the guest.

          The food was simply excellent. We shared the pork Charcuterie (loved it). I had the smoked trout which was a beautiful blend of texture and flavor. The wonderful salty, smoky flavor was off-set perfectly by fingerling potatoes and apples, with a dash of creme fraiche for good measure. Husband had the salmon with heirloom tomatoes and practically inhaled the whole thing in 30 seconds.

          Excellent meal! (and I didn't mind the chairs).

            Love this. Thank you. "THIS is how you do food and service."

            Lunch at Cafe Chloe seems the perfect way to celebrate my new blue San Diego.

              During lunch time (the only times I've been there) there's TONS of street parking (metered)

                Cafe Chloe is near 9th and G, so there is a decent amount of parking on the street.
