I frequently elect to dine at Chat with only my husband or with family. The management and service are always very pleasant and accommodating. The menu offers a good variety of options, the preparation of the dishes is consistent and generally quite good. One of my favorites is steamed artichokes: the simply prepared dish served here is outstanding. Additionally, the ambience is elegant and low-key which contribute to a very positive dining experience.
Best casual dining in Scarsdale. Excellent willingness to serve items that are off menu (had a Caeser Salad with a generous helping of anchovies). Iced tea generous. Ingredients are well chosen and fresh.
Had a fantastic brunch. Lots of choices, great service and delicious food!
Excellent food and cocktails!
We made last-minute plans and were very pleased by our experience at Chat. The host and serving staff were pleasant and efficient, we were seated in a more intimate section of the restaurant, service was surprisingly quick for a Saturday night, and the food was very good. We’d definitely go back!
Nice meal in a lovely setting. We usually go and sit outside but it was hardly good weather—cold and rainy. We enjoyed the food —service was good. J
Great meal salmon was delicious and a large piece. Wine pour is always generous
Chat is always good. The service is attentive without being hovering and the food is always well prepared and flavorful.
Food was fantastic.. the shrimp and vegetable dumplings were delicious.. light. Also the soup, swordfish and tuna were equally as good.. drinks were also very good
Little pricey but overall great
Waiter very attentive, maitre d' couldn't have been nicer. Food was very good, served promptly. We were not rushed. Very enjoyable experience.
Early Val dinner
Great place for a date
Cozy, delicious, pleasant service and surroundings. Great place to meet friends for lunch or dinner.
Great food and service are what we have come to expect. Always a good variety of specials in addition to menu.
I have been to Chat numerous times. I have never had any problems and this time was no exception. Everything was excellent! We especially loved the stuffed zucchini blossoms. I had the skirt steak and it was delicious I especially loved the roasted vegetables that it came with. My husband and our friends had the swordfish special and they loved their meals as well.
Nice surprise re: noise level. We could actually talk to one another. Food very tasty and timely delivered. On my list to come again.
Very good food, very good service, but too noisy. We couldn't easily carry on a conversation.
Consistently great food and service. Relaxing yet sophisticated vibe. Fun for all ages. Menu has diverse options for all tastes. Always delicious!
No complaints but noise level would discourage my returning
My family and I moved to Scarsdale from the city over the weekend. On Saturday on our first date out we decided to go try Chat. Our reservation was for 8pm the restaurant was very crowded,
the Maitre D’ (must be the owner, he was dressed Ferragamo top to bottom) bring us to the table, on our way there he told us that they knew about the allergy of one of our party, and if we needed any help to please let him know (thumbs up, restaurants never read the notes on the reservation). Great menu, lots of specials, we had the eggplant Napoleon...Delicious, fried calamari and bruschetta. For dinner, halibut....Outstanding, the orecchiette pasta and sliced steak also very good(the seasoning on the steak was a little to much and gave the impression of a burned steak but was cooked to perfection). Overall a great experience. They told us that there’s a sister restaurant in town, looking forward to try it as well. We will be back soon!!
Excellent food and service. LoveD my dinner. If there was anything that I would change, the bread was mediocre, at best. A minor mistep in an overall great experience.
The food was very tasty (blackened salmon/quinoa/avocado/onions) and beautifully presented.
The server was attentive, in general, but also with respect to my friend's food limitations (made suggestions).
Overall staff experience was positive. Checked in a number of times, but not overly intrusive.
Not in this area, frequently, but would see it as the place to enjoy lunch with friends.
Dinner with friends
My wife and I had a great time at chat
The service was right on target friendly and prompt
Great vibe and ambiance
Food was prepared to perfection
The Miram glazed tuna was perfect
The spaghetti squash great
Also like the cocktail list want to get back to to chat soon
My husband and I had dinner with another couple on New Years Eve. First we had a drink at the bar, drinks were well made and served promptly. For dinner we were seated at a spacious table, the restaurant was lively but not too noisy. We shared calamari and tuna tartare, both were very good. The tartare was a unique preparation with plantain chips and a soy dressing. For the main course we had the surf and turf special which was outstanding, one person had a skirt steak, and one person had the orchiette with broccoli rabe and hot sausage. For dessert we shared a flourless chocolate cake and creme brûlée, both of which tasted homemade and very fresh. Our server was polite and knowledgeable. We stayed quite a while and did not feel rushed at all. At midnight we were given party favors (hats and noise makers) as well as a champagne toast. We went to the bar to watch the ball drop. It was busy, and celebratory. Everyone in my party had a magnificent evening and we plan to return soon.
Slow service! Very few people n the restaurant due to the cold weather, but our waitress did not check in with us very often.
Went with my family for Christmas Eve dinner. The tables were placed so closely together that it was difficult to sit down and we could hear other groups’ conversations loudly. They sat us without menus and then we had to wait. Didn’t tell us specials until we were about to order and we had to ask them if there were any. Server didn’t memorize the specials and couldn’t pronounce most of the words. Mixed up drink orders, tried to blame us, then tried to pawn off their mistake on us. Not happening.
Food - best part of husband’s pasta was broth at the bottom of the bowl. So sad. The chicken in mom’s paella was flavorless but the rice was way too salty. Everyone else’s food was ok - nothing to write home about, especially for the price. Even though their menu and website state that they’re very accommodating to food allergies - they’re not. Very difficult. Server didn’t know what was in any of the food. Said she’d ask the chef and never came back to tell us what he said.
Ruined my Christmas Eve dinner. Will never go back again. Do not recommend.
GREAT SERVICE! Our server was a "grown up" and it was so refreshing! Definitely a step up in quality.
Always a great experience at chat! 👍
Celebrated birthday for cousin. Wait staff very pleasant and efficient. Sang happy birthday!
Let us sit and talk after meal was finished.
come to Chats about once every3 weeks. Food is very good , pleasant surroundings, Easy to get to, ample parking in Scarsdale. Have never had a poor meal.
First time I've enjoyed a meal here. I am not a fan of Chat American nor its sister restaurant in Larchmont, but went during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week and gave it another chance. While the base menu remains overpriced for mediocre food, I must admit to enjoying the HVRW meal. I had mussels, chicken pallard, and the Chat Bits for dessert. The mussels were excellent, with a spicy broth. The chicken was good, with a lot of nice salad ingredients on top. The chicken was nicely grilled, but pounded a bit too thin so that it was very dry. The Chat Bits aren't noteworthy. My dining partners loved the lobster tacos, something we've always felt was a very good item when we've eaten here in the past. One had the hamburger and gave it high marks, while the other had the spaghetti squash, and was pleased.
While the food is nothing to right home about, when the weather is nicer the outdoor patio is pleasant. As for parking, it can be difficult depending upon time of day and day of the week.
everything was good. why can't they make butternut squash soup without cream? would be nice to have 1 soup on the menu that is dairy free.
Brunch was excellent service was so attentive. Scarsdale mimosa was delicious.
Restaurant week menu was a good value, food was consistent.
Service was off that night.
Love the decor and ambiance of Chat. Food was excellent -- diverse offering including vegetarian and gluten free options. Wine selection was good and reasonably priced. Will definitely visit again.
I have never had a bad meal at Chat since they opened. whether you are interested in a quick light bite or want to dine on a full meal, steak, pasta, fish, you wil not be disappointed. Delicious food, reasonable prices and a Great staff ; they always go out of their way to accommodate you.
They were throwing a huge party in the main room so we were seated in the far back corner. It was dark and airless. Our server had a very thick accent making it difficult to understand the specials. That being said, our food took over an hour. The table next to us came and left and we still hadn't gotten our food. No apologies or explanation.
Our drinks were watered down (Bloody Mary tasted like tomato water).
When the food finally arrived many dishes were not edible and we had to send them back. The mac and cheese was watery, the spring rolls were greasy and the meatballs were chewy. Pretty much every dish tasted like bad diner food. Overall a totally disappointing meal from start to finish.
The Branzino was delicious!!
Been here many times - it is always a good -meal great service
