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.

The food is very yummy, the ambiance is okay. I liked the potrero hill location a bit more. GooglePlace - July 2017

Don't get what's the fuss about this place. Food was very mediocre. They reuse bread from each table. Gross. GooglePlace - July 2017

Love this place. It's our neighborhood haunt and it never disappoints. The Nicois Salad is fantastic and the Roadted Chicken is just delicious. The service is prompt and their gelato is refreshing. GooglePlace - June 2017

A small, bustling restaurant with good service and absolutely delicious food and cocktails! I had the salmon burger with goat cheese, and it was melt-in-your-mouth good! The salmon was super tender and cooked perfectly. Even though a protein served as a burger in ciabatta bread often seems to be served that way in an attempt to hide low quality or poor preparation, I could have pulled that salmon right out of the bread and eaten it as a delicious stand-alone entree! Reasonable prices for being in SF as well, especially for the great quality of the food that we got. GooglePlace - May 2017

Perfect lil French gem, close to several places to catch a show or night life. Wine selection is great. The owner is almost always there making you feel at home. His crew in the front of house are warm and they simply do a wonderful job. The team in the kitchen is the heart of this place, and it shows. Their food makes you feel something and makes you remember your last meal in France. GooglePlace - February 2017
