LOVE the decor. Classy and modern. The menu was exquisite and the cocktails creative - although a little heavier on the mixers than one would think. We went on a Tuesday night and the vibe was chill, but I could totally see myself going back with a big group on a weekend and indulging at one of those big banquet booths.

Excellent Ambiance, Food OK
I went to the restaurant for the ambiance, and it did not disappoint. From the seating (I had a loveseat style booth for two) to the level of service, it was quite good. That said, the food was good, but certianly not fantastic. Had the beef tartar and the steak, both were good. The potato gratin was very good. The bread basket was basically a croissant and that was good. For a romantic dinner, excellent. However, if you want fantastic food, there are many places in NYC that has better food and is comparably priced.

At lunch it is a quiet place. Great for business lunches because you can actually hear each other. The mac and cheese is a perfect sized portion for lunch.

Noir c'est magnifique
Beautiul restaurant with plush velvet banquetes and crystal chandeliers. Food and service very nice. Thursdays and Fridays DJ upstairs...very cool for private party in the wine room which is enclosed in glass and sound proof..
nothing bad to say...cool vibrant bar scene up front..

Early Pre-Holiday Dinner
A coworker and I dropped into Noir on the night before 4th of July. I immediately thought it would be a great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion as the decor and ambiance is very swanky and trendy. The food was really good, my friend and I split the fried oysters, bacon & onion pizzaand tuna tartare. It was practically empty - I'm assuming because of the holiday and the early time - but it was perfect for our needs. My only complaint is for it to be basically empty, the service was a little slow. We had to flag down the waitress several times which seems unusual when you're the only table in the restuarant. But overall it was a nice experience and I look forward to returning.

Noir's décor is pure glam and swank. The plush tufted banquettes and chandelier were gorgeous. We were seated promptly (with a reservation) and the service was excellent.
The appetizers we ordered (the Kobe sliders and the bacon & caramelized onion pizza) were above average, but not mind-blowing. The crust on the pizza was a little soggy.
My entrée, the scallops, were amazing. The lemon risotto was delicious too. My better half ordered the sirloin and although it was good, it wasn't anything to write home about. He was especially disappointed as he was looking forward to the Veal Chop (posted on their website AND on the menu outside the restaurant) but it was no longer available.
Overall, a great experience and I would recommend.

Downstairs restaurant was closed due to main event. We had to sit upstairs in the bar area which is very loud, very hustling, and too much noise. Made the night very uncomfortable uneasy

Loved everything about this place
The food, the ambience, the attention, the spaciousness. One little note though: the manager on duty needs to lighten up a bit! He seemed so stern & looked as if he had been solving world's nuclear crisis or such and therefore one could feel the tension of the staff as well.

Fits its name
Very cool decor, luxurious and plush. Awesome wine room at the end, flanked on both side by deep velvet booths. All the menu items looked and tasted fantastic. We had a group of 7 and they accommodated us nicely. The manager even came over and took some group photos for us.
