Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "Server knew nothing about the dishes on the menu, initially rushed us and then forgot about us. Multiple requests for water, bread, ice etc."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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)"

  • "I had the Mussels and the Grilled Shrimp Salad. The Mussels were jut OK, and the salad was below par. Too much red onion, 3 or 4 small shrimp, beans were hard, Arugula was tough. I barely ate it and no one asked if it was OK. My daughter ordered sweet potato fries with here sandwich and they brought them out with the appetizer and then brought regular fries out with her sandwich, instead of just replacing her fries on her dish with her sandwich, the sandwich was just OK. Of course they charged us for the sweet potato fries! The desserts were way overpriced and not very good, the apple thing was puny and the bites were burned. The service was chaotic and the wait staffed did understand English very well and seemed confused."

  • "We met for a dnnier of friends, associates. The food is great- a littlepricey but.... The noise level is beyond energetic. They have tons of wait staff and assistants buzzing aorund but it is still hard to get a second cup of coffee. Overall, yes, I would return but not if I have to hear someone across the table for extended periods of close listening."

  • "They lost our OT reservation. Said they understood but then sat everyone else who was waiting for a table before us. As for the food, the Angel Hair was overdone and the spinach dip was tasteless. Otherwise, the food was fine. This was our first visit. Overall impression was that this is a neighborhood place that has outgrown itself."

Love the new menu Can't wait to return Keep up the good work Chat."

  • "Thought I'd try this restaurant heard it was good and had a vibrant energy. The host was wonderful very accommodating and friendly. Our table was located under a huge tv screen great to view the March Madness games but on another night I would have found it annoying. The waitress did not initially bring the restaurant week menu we had to ask for it, poor public relations and dishonest. It's restaurant week and you signed up for it Chat Bistro so shame on you for trying to trick your Scarsdale customers. I would return however for the tasty food and energetic vibe, great for a gals night out."

  • "Very busy , wait staff milling around everywhere , seated us right on front of kitchen door probably the worst table in the restaurant got moved to another without a problem food was good portions good , no prices given by waiter on specials which turned out to be expensive"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Have dined here several times and have always enjoyed it. The service was pleasant, portions have been good for the price - though not inexpensive. However, this last time 2 in our party ordered the special octopus salad - to say this was disappointing is an understatement. It was a spinach salad with a tiny amount of octopus - not worth the $14. We mentioned this to our server who agreed and said we speak to the manager on the way out. Hmm isn't that her job? Surprisingly she offered no accommodation or even a cup of coffee. I did mention it to the manager and he said he would look into it but again made no attempt to offer something, anything as an apology. I would return, with caution, and would request more clarity on the specials."
