    We were very suprised to find such aa gem so nearby. The menu is broad wit'h food for all tastes. (Gluten-ree menu section.) The service was terrific. The six of u each had different salads and entrees and we shared a couple of appitizers. Everyone from the 3 year old to the 78 year old, was more tha pleased with the food. The wine list was adequate and our selection was excellent. We were so pleased, we tried the Chat 19 in Larchmont the next day. (Rate it the same!)

    One of the nicest things about warm weather is the opportunity to have a meal outside in the fresh air. I'm so happy with Chat because of their outdoor shaded patio, their pleasant and efficient service and their fresh food. The heirloom tomato salad was delicious and the fish wrap all that I had hoped for. I will definitely return.

    We love brunch and love to try new brunch spots but every time we try somewhere new, we compare it to Chat and it comes up short. The outdoor patio is a lovely shaded spot. The service is always excellent and the servers are unfailingly pleasant. The eggs florentine is my favorite dish but there are many breakfast and lunch options to choose from. Iced coffee in a mason jar is not a new idea but it's terrific here. The patio can get a little crowded with large family groups but that means others enjoy Chat as much as we do.

    Been to Chat many times & I keep giving it 1 more chance. think its chances are up though. the service is bad- waiters gather by the doorway & it's impossible to get someone's attention. our water glasses were never filled, bread basket not replenished, took 10 -15 mins. to get drink delivered (bloody mary came w/o celery although every other one we saw had it), had to ask for the specials, took 20 mins for waiter to come to take our order, good 40 mins to get lunch. food ok but not remarkable. best thing about the place is outdoor seating. waiter very grouchy.

    100% improved over the last time we ate here (in July). Everything went well from the moment we sat down until we finished. Waiter was very pleasant & efficient; he repeated each request to make sure everything was correct. Appetizers which included salad & lobster/crab tacos were delicious, as was the grilled salmon. A key lime tart with coffee completed the meal. We asked the waiter if he was new to this Chat & he told us he was originally from Chat in Larchmont. His name is Mario & it's worth coming here for his great service & friendly attitude alone . Food is always good but service iffy to poor; this time all was excellent. We will ask for Mario the next time we come in.

    The food was great and the atmosphere amazing. Every couple of months a group of my girlfriends, usually six of us, go out for dinner, and this was by far one of the best locations we picked. The service was very good and the food was excellent. I ordered the spaghetti squash, which was excellent. For dessert we ordered Chat Bites. Of the chart delicious! Great outdoor space. I would highly recommend it. The menu is also fairly large so there is something for everyone!

    Chat has become my favorite summer brunch spot. The service is excellent; pleasant yet unobtrusive. The range of options is large covering both breakfast and lunch. My favorite is the Eggs Florentine. The breezes flow through the outside patio and umbrellas keep the sun at bay. Iced coffee and cappuccino keep you cool. A+ in my book.

    We had a very enjoyable meal and I especially loved the outdoor dining. Although I felt our waiter was rushed and inattentive....the food was good and overall atmosphere very nice. I had the tuna steak and was told it was not spicy..however, it was....probably sesame oil. I might have asked to make it less spicy if I knew ahead of time. The kale Caesar salad was very good. I do plan to return...as many dishes looked really good.

    Still can't figure out why this place is so busy except that it is so convenient. Food, at best is fair. Turkey burger was bland, sweet potato fries were underdone, artichoke salad was fair at best and the lobster tacos were nothing to write home about. And what about paying 4.50 for an iced tea? Anyway, the service was great-very attentive and relaxed and timely when we asked for things and to be able to sit outside on a nice night is terrific. The food just needs major improvement.

    I chose the location for outdoor dining and the menu looked good. I was surprised by a large, beautifully decorated indoor space - definitely a place I can see myself. But I wanted outside. It's a delightful garden environment with a view of the park. The food was delectable, excellently prepared and plated. Nelson and the crew were wonderful. I'll go back if I have a chance.

    best thing is that you can eat outside. food was only okay (i had spaghetti squash which was usually excellent in the past- this time it was very undercooked). waiters are nice but seem very unprofessional. seems as though they added extra tables and you sit on top of those next to you. even hard to find a way out!

    We usually have a late lunch here. I like the menu, there is something for any mood, whether you want a big steak or a light salad. Cocktail list is interesting and drinks are well executed. The outdoor area is nice. Management is friendly and attentive, even in the off hours. The meatballs are awesome. Overall it's a great place to have a lunch or casual dinner, and a few cocktails. This one is a little nice than the one in Larchmont.

    Service was exceptional at our recent brunch. The outdoor patio is a lovely place to have a meal. There is plenty of shade and the breezes just waft right through keeping you cool and comfortable. Our omelet and fish wrap were excellent; the waffle was a bit chewy; the fruit was perfect. I think that this is our new favorite brunch spot.

    I've been to this restaurant numerous times and each time I am amazed at how consistently great everything is. I made my reservation for a table because I know it can be busy on nice nights on the weekends. I had a minimal wait time which was amazing considering how packed it was. I love the food and all the employees there are the nicest in the world.

  • What's wrong with the Lobster Cobb?
    FamilyVIP
    Dined on 6/27/2014
    Make sure that you look at your food before eating it. Graduation Brunch for five: The Lobster Cobb salad was decent, but I bit into something that wasn't quite right. I called the server who took this 2" long fibrous object to the kitchen. She then later returned and rather matter-of-factly told me that the chef said it was a piece of parchment paper used to cover the lobsters in the kitchen. No apology from the staff, kitchen, chef, or GM-no one. No offer to replace the salad, or even a complimentary drink, let alone a price adjustment. We are local residents. This was my first and will likely be my only dining experience here. I certainly will not recommend this restaurant to our friends and neighbors. We skipped the dessert.

    The atmosphere is very pleasant. The service was poor to say the least. I asked for a refill of water 5 times and they never came back. Our entree took at least a half hour and when it came (the busboy barely spoke English) they brought the wrong dish for one of us with no apologies. They waiter did not come back to ask how our meal was and we overheard the table next to us complaining about their service. Our meals were good but we could not get past the bad service. When I asked for the check that was the only time we saw the waiter again and he id apologize for the mix up with the meals.
