Why "Chez Maman"? Obviously, because you can never eat better than your mother's cooking. What is warmer than to be with her and eat the food she has just cooked for you? Simple and delicious. My mother always told me "finis ton assiette" because it was proof to her that I loved what she cooked for me. Chez Maman is inspired by this kind of childhood memory. We have tried to recreate that atmosphere with a menu composed of French basics. Tasty items like a hamburger with guacamole or French brie with a good glass of wine - a welcoming and tasty French meal. Chez Maman is a neighborhood restaurant with a bistro concept. We attribute our success to the friendly and casual atmosphere as well as our delicious home cooked meals. The ambiance is French inspired naturally, with the warm colors of the French countryside. What could be more relaxing? Our goal is to satisfy patrons at any time of day or evening from a casual salad or burger for lunch, a mid-afternoon sweet crepe to a three course meal with a great bottle of French wine when you just don't feel like cooking. Of course, if you want to enjoy your Chez Maman meal at home with your feet up, we will gladly make it for you to go. The menu is the same in all of our Chez Maman restaurants. The first one opened on Potrero Hill in 2002. The neighbors all soon became regulars, coming in two or three times a week to share a comfortable meal with their friends and family. We have recently opened a location in Bernal Heights and will soon have one conveniently located on Union Street. We look forward to seeing you at one of our Chez Maman located near you.

Delicious French food at affordable prices. You'll usually need to put your name on list and wait a decent amount, but it's totally worth it. GooglePlace - September 2017

Love the sister restaurant to original Chez Maman in Potrero Hill! This one is a lot busier but conveniently located on Hayes with lots of other fun bars and stores and the park to explore. Mussels were great! GooglePlace - September 2017

This place is the real deal for casual French food. Obviously there are some American influences, but many of the French staples are right on the money. The staff are friendly and the prices are reasonable. Will come back again. GooglePlace - September 2017
