Newly opened (the site in Danville closed) and situated at the quieter north west corner at bishop ranch, Chow offers a little of every thing for everyone. I suppose the term gastropub best describes Chow.
The inside dining area is bright and spacious. The outside dining area is even better and would be great place to have a meal at any hour of the day weather permitting.
Food is pretty good and reasonable given the demographics. American, Asian, Hispanic and European offerings are on the menu. You can come here for brunch, lunch or dinner, and they have a full bar.. Dishes are on the lighter side and generally well executed.
We had the burger, fish tacos and enchiladas. The burger was cooked as ordered but needed salt. The enchiladas were good, the mole sauce being decent. Fish tacos were ok but nothing special. Everything is well presented and service was friendly and generally efficient but note that we arrived mid afternoon.
Like a Jack of all trades, Chow is proficient at many things but not necessarily a master of anything in particular. Nothing stands out but that's not the point.
I think Chow bills itself as a place where family and friends can gather at a nice place and get a decent meal and drinks at a decent price...and in those respects, it succeeds in my opinion.
If I was able to give a 6th star to one restaurant, it would go to Chow!
Everything I’ve tried here has been amazing, but their Thai Noodle dish is my favorite entree of all time. Trust me, I ordered it once a week for ~7 years at the old Danville location and never got sick of it, considered changing my order, or going anywhere else. The food quality seems even better at this new location in San Ramon too.
Cannot recommend Chow enough!
We went there for dinner during the Diwali Celebration. It had allot of open seating however customer service/ host is really all over the place. It took about 4 people to get us seated and got our drinks taken by one person, then our food by another. We ordered the Enchiladas which were amazing! Best enchiladas I’ve had in a while, just the side of beans tasted a little bad. We also order the Steak fries but those were really bad. The steak was way overcooked and burnt and the entire plate just lacked flavor and presentation. We ended our dinner with a ginger cake and that was a really good dessert. Despite the steak fries being bad and not great customer service I’d go again. Place is clean and very well decorated. Only got a picture of the Enchiladas.
Casual Thursday lunch - not too busy and service was friendly. Had been to their SF and Danville locations a while back and considered their food tasty and generous portions. The setup at City Center was nice and open, not feeling like you could hear other tables conversations. Ordered the Thai noodles and my friend got two tacos - one steak and one pork, she really liked the pork with pineapple. The noodles and broth were flavorful and not too spicy. Will definitely return to try other menu items.
Coma on Friday night at 8pm. Seated right away. Service is slow. Sat down for 10 mins and server did not come to take order. Fish burger is dry. Seafood pasta is average. Hope they will improve. Menu has too few choices.
