A Gem Not-to-Miss on the Eastside
This little piece of Paris re-creates a classic bistro where food never disappoints, service is fantastic – and the ambiance and décor deliver.

Dinner on Easter evening is typically tough. Chat Noir did a fine job in the kitchen. Service was not up to their typical excellent level

Some of the best service I've ever had in NYC...friendly and attentive staff without being overwhelming. The food came out quick and was delicious. Great atmosphere in a relatively small restaurant which makes it a more romantic scene. I definitiely recommend.

Chat Noir is THE perfect place
Chat Noir is THE perfect place for a girl's lunch to take a break from a busy day of shopping on Madison Avenue. The ambiance is classy yet casual, the service is great and the food superb. You can't beat it!

Always a winner!
Chat Noir is consistenly great. The ambiance is Paris and the food is wonderful. Had four of us for dinner. Endive salad was simply outstanding. Branzino and Salmon main courses were hot, and delicious. Service (especaily Maggie) was as advertised. Susanne, the owner, formerly of La Goulue has done it again.

Good food, beautiful people
The A-list of designers and the design press was there on full view at lunch.

Bistro Dining at its Best
The Bloody Mary's and Blue Cheese Dirty Martinis are delish!!!!
Artichoke Ravioli are very tasty paired with The Basket of Warm Breads!
Then to top your Brunch off,you must experience the Profiteroles with a Cappuccino!!!
An excellent Bistro to have a relaxing beverage and desert or of course on the go or to enjoy the whole meal menu!!!

Love the ambiance!
My friend and I had lunch and we were not rushed at all, service was attentive, food very good. Suzanne, the owner, is a delight stopping by our table to say hello as if we were all old friends. Can't wait to go there again... It is a lovely spot!
Open Twble is a great way to make a reservation!

Love Bistro Chat Noir
We've enjoyed Chat Noir many times and this past visit was no exception - The welcome was friendly, the table was ready and the staff was willing to accommodate our requests... And, the food was terrific!
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a wonderful Salad Nicoise, relaxed, sipped ice tea, celebrated a friend's birthday and wasn't rushed. Only problem was a large crowd of young women (20) who were VERY noisy.

Perfect Place for Bistro Lunch
I took my wife there for an anniversary lunch, and it was perfect--French classics of fresh food, well prepared, with a quiet neighborhood ambiance.

East Side Casual
Casual on the East Side is anything but...the patrons are well dressed and stylish. And, Chat Noir accommodates with an attractive dining room, great service and excellent food. Overall, Chat Noir is a great experience and a lot of fun...

Upper East Side Classic
I look forward to returning to Bistro Chat Noir to order the cheese souffle! My tuna tartar was as fresh as could be and my friend's seared salmon on a bed of lentils looked perfect. The gazpacho was refreshing - and fresh! Bistro Chat Noir is reliable and the service impeccable. I LOVE this restaurant!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I picked Bistro CN over more pricey UES restaurants for a French dining experience, and was not disappointed. The staff was gracious and attentive, very professional, and the food was perfectly prepared. The Ravioli Rayon, with escargot, was my favorite: tasty and well seasoned without being too garlicky. The ambiance was lovely; banquette tables aren't packed tightly together so there was room between us and other diners. I would go back and recommend.

My favorite NYC bistro!
I love everything about Bistro Chat Noir: service; food; ambience and ease in making reservations! It's my favorite place to go in every season!

A Charming,New Go-To Place on UES
My husband and I dined here after an afternoon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art-- and we are so glad we did! A lovely walk down 5th Avenue, this cozy, charming bistro has fabulous food. My husband and I both loved our choices for dinner and appetizers (heirloom tomato salad, quinoa salad, seafood)---- everything was wonderfully prepared and presented. We ordered 2 desserts (both chocolate!) and loved them both. The chocolate souffle could have fed a dozen people but it was so good, we kept it to ourselves! The owner came by and was very solicitous, wanting to be sure we were happy ---- we had a lovely evening and will return here many times I am sure. If you are in the area --- or not---- do not miss this little gem.

Lovely, charming restaurant with impeccable service and food that has been perfect every time we've gone. A favorite of ours.

I chose Bistro Chat Noir based on the Open Table description and I am so happy that I did!
I had a lovely dinner with a friend whom I had not seen in years. I called to request a change in our reservation and they were able to accommodate us! The ambience is just lovely. We were tempted to dine al fresco because it was so beautiful, bit we chose to dine inside which was just as posh. The service was superb and the food was delicious! I will recommend Bistro Chat Noir to friends and family. A lovely experience.

excellent food, service and ambience. loved the location in a quiet neighborhood. felt like you were out of the hustle and bustle that manhattan is.

We adore this cozy bistro and dine here every time we are in NYC. We are never disappointed!

My daughter and I went for lunch. Food was vey good and the service very attentive. Swapped out the regular fries for the truffle fries which was worth the extra money. Expensive lunch but worth it. The owner, Suzanne, came over and introduced herself which was very nice. Later asked us if we recognized that Jon Hamm was at the next table!

A favorite in a city of great restaurants. ALWAYS good and always a good time.

Bistro Chat Noir
I and a friend had a great dinner at Bistro Chat Noir but I did think it was somewhat overpriced for the starters and the wine.
I think the location has to do with the pricing. $14.00 minimum for a glass of too high, there should have been other lower priced options. We both ordered the Branzino which is a favorite of mine and it was very nicely prepared and delicious.
The food was terrific, no complaints at all...just felt I could have gone elsewhere for great food for 20% less mainly because of the wine and starter prices.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gem of a restaurant. A happy place.
Nice lunch menu with many choices reasonably priced. Wines by the glass a little on the high side but you get a good amount in the glass. Good service. Will return. Great place for both business lunches and ladies luncheons.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is our 4th or 5th time here and it never disappoints. We were joined by friends who had never been and they are now hooked. A slight glitch. My wife and one of our companions both ordered the same salad and I ordered a chicken dish. They brought out two chicken dishes and one salad. They brought out the missing salad when the rest of us were halfway through our entrees. As no one was starving it was an inconvenience not a disaster. The complimentarty dessert was a good touch to make amends.
We will return and bring new friends for them to enjoy a lovely dinner in a lovely atmosphere.

Food is reasonably priced and good. Drinks are pricey. Don't come here for intimate private conversations, Tables are very close together.

The overall experience is great. Its not a place to say - unbelievable but you will leave saying it was everything expected.
Food, service, atmosphere and attitude were a perfect package. Can see why they are always full and open for so long. Will be back many more times.

Great service, great food and nothing is ever a problem. Love this place. Lots of fun, too.

Not my first time.
I always gravitate to Bistro Chat Noir because of the warm environment and the good food. Anyone I take there likes it.
I love it. The menu is diverse, the service is great and it is perfect for conversing and catching up with friends.
The martini's with the blue cheese stuffed olives are a big hit.

Classic Frenchy bistro, with an updated feel to it. Short ribs were terrific, and the sides are very good.

Don't pass this place by.
Great place. Fantastic food, service, wine, and easy on the wallet. Try the Shortribs, best in the City. Can't wait to go back.

A neighborhood gem
What a treat to eat delicious French food in a dining room presided over by Suzanne Latapie. The beet salad is not to be missed and the cheese soufflé was perfectly turned out. If you are from out of town, definitely stop in here - you will feel like a local!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Reliable and friendly
Good basic and reliable food, extremely friendly reception and service. One wants to go back often. It is truly a neighborhood gem.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not only perfect for "ladies who lunch" but much much more. Highly recommend.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, fun clientele, front of house lovely, wait staff so so. Maybe need to hire a few more waiters, long wait between everything.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a neighborhood jam. We were seated right away and service was good.
I think the only draw back is that even thought its located in a prime neighborhood I think brunch for 2 at $110 is quite high.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Cat is Better
While the cat has been a local favorite the steady menu and wine list can be problematic. We were therefore very pleasantly surprised and pleased by a refreshed menu
Keep up the good work and we look forward to an early return

A bit of Paris in New York
Charmed by the entrance, charmed by the inside ambience, excellent service, great food, excellent wine. Even the rest rooms were amusing!

A very nice French restaurant
I really like this restaurant. One of my favorites. Cost is reasonable considering the quality of the food and service. Excellent food. A little disappointed that filet mignon was not on the prix fixe menu after being told on the phone that it would be. Nevertheless, the lamb shank was absolutely delicious. Dessert was a little disappointing, hence 4 stars instead of 5. Service here is always very good, but doesn't quite rate 5 stars, but close. If I could give 4 and a half, I would, in all categories. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience.
