Diner Reviews
  • "Sitting on the patio on a Friday after a long week at work is a great way to start the weekend. The service is attentive and the food is delicious and beautifully presented."

  • "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."

  • "When this restaurant opened in Scarsdale, it was quite the talk of the town. Many others have opened since, but Chat still provides a winning combo of great food, outdoor PRIVATE dining and a sensational bar scene."

  • "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."

  • "When they first opened the food was better. Wish they would pay a little more attention to it and up their game. The menu choices are good, but the execution just ok."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "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."

  • "Lobster Cob Salad was a big hit for a summer night. Don't miss berries in a box dessert. Our waitress recommended it and it was outstanding."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Good food and attentive staff. Lovely outdoor dining area. The server knew the menu, knew how to listen to the diners, and convey special requests to the chef. It was a good meal. I thought it was a little pricey, but I'm from out of town and I didn't pay."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Great place to have a nice lunch....appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches etc."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "I got rained out on my birthday in June but have been able to dine outdoors several times since. Food is good, atmosphere lovely & service tries to be good but probably too few waiters for amount of tables. Still, worth coming to for the great outdoors we've waited so long for."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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."

  • "Our entrees were fresh and delicious and served piping hot. Architect did a great job with the design and decor. Most pleasant evening."
    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."

  • "Food is consistently good. Varied menu with lots of options. A gluten free menu was added recently so my husband is very happy."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "We had a lovely girlie night here recently...food was very good..recommend the chicken stir fry..wine was delicious...staff friendly and attentive and price range was affordable...they have a very nice outdoor area but we sat inside..the air conditioning was a little high but not uncomfortable ..a nice find"

  • "food was good & nice to sit outside. however service was poor. sat at table for good 10 mins before we had to ask waiter to order drinks. appetizers came- 2 of us were sharing a salad, but they didn't split it in the kitchen as many restaurants do. also, 1 of us ordered a salad as a main course and that was served with our apps. one other app didn't come out until significantly after the others. never received the red pepper that was requested. main courses- my main course did not come as ordered, another's salad came dressed when it was requested undressed. waiter no where to be found. has great outdoor seating though, which is the main reason to go back. waiters seem very poorly trained. bus boy did not understand anything we asked"

  • "Glad that we accidentally found this restaurant in Scarsdale village. It's perfect for a nice evening, because it offers outdoor dining and plenty of space between tables. Menu has a variety of foods. Highly recommend the tuna cooked to perfection. Very good service that evening. A nice, local find. Try it!"

  • "I've eaten in Chat several times, once a few months ago with my friends from Yoga. We had enjoyed it so much I thought it would be a lovely place to celebrate my birthday. Everything went well except the weather, I had been hoping to dine outside but it was foggy & chilly. However, the food, drinks & service were all terrific & I look forward to returning & dining outdoors."

  • "Tables are too close. Too many people and not enough waiters."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Service was haphazard: considering the prices charged, service should be better- there were challenges for staff understanding and also following through on some requests, and error made in requested order. That said, the atmosphere and food were very good, especially sitting outdoors on a summer night there is delightful."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Chat was exactly as a Scarsdale resident had described it, conveniently located, decent basic American food, and probably less interesting than some other place might have been. But it was a convenient place to meet, the a/c worked, and the only strange thing was running out of Sam Adams Summer Ale (poor inventory control in my view)"
