Inspired by the warmth of Provence in his home country of France, Chef/Owner Philippe Chevalier brings to life his vision for the ideal dining experience, a place where the richness of life is savored through wine, food and friends. Since opening in 2008, CHEVALIER continues to be rated a top restaurant, receiving 5 Michelin Bib Gourmand awards and named one of the 10 Best Restaurants of the East Bay by Diablo Magazine.
Situated in downtown Lafayette, the restaurant’s warm inviting interior, rich cherry wood bar and glorious outdoor dining garden offer an escape to a place of comfort, casual elegance and true enjoyment. As the Chef says “In Provence people sing a song when they talk. When the sun and the wind caress your skin, with the scent of lavender and rosemary in the air, your senses wake and remind you of the beauty of life.”
Chef Chevalier is proud to support local purveyors who take pride in producing the highest quality all natural products, without growth or added hormones or antibiotics. CHEVALIER's network of suppliers support sustainable farming practices.
