Originally chosen because it was close to my parents but the food, service and attention to detail made it a favorite.

Went for Mother’s Day brunch with my family. Table looked like it was added and it was by the exit door. Place was overpacked and food nothing special. We will not be returning.

We had a reservation but had to wait about 20 mins, which was not unreasonable for a very busy Saturday night. The hosts are very gracious and kept us apprised while we waited. My only disappointment was they removed the braised short ribs from the menu and I was really looking forward to them.

I went on Mother’s Day and so it was packed at 7 pm, so I feel the restaurant was extraordinarily busy that night.
We were seated behind a pillar and I did accept that table rather than wait . We had reservations so that was the only table available at the moment. The food was very good, however my husband thought the mashed potatoes was very bland and desperately needed salt. Our server was very busy but attentive!
The place was clean and decor charming! I will definitely go again but not on Mother’s Day! I couldn’t give a half star so i’m being generous and giving 4 stars as I realize they were exceptionally busy.

Chat is usually great- service and food. When we dined there yesterday outside the service was horrendously slow and everything seemed in disarray. Hopefully an isolated issue!

Firstly -- the food was outstanding, all three of us enjoyed our meals. Apps: spinach artichoke bleu cheese dip was enjoyably creamy (though the chips were not as fresh as they could have been), the Chat meatballs were ok but not great. Main course: sliced steak was juicy and presented beautifully, the spare ribs were very good (though I prefer different style so YMMV), and the sliders were fantastic and fun to eat. Desserts: fudge banana split was enormous and enjoyable, the creme brulee hit the spot exactly. The Scarsdale mimosa was a fun, fruity, sparkly drink that was light and perfect for before dinner. The malbec was good, but I think the California cab would have been better for my meal. Overall, it was expensive but a decent value - the food was worth the cost. Service was fine - I can't really complain though I was surprised they'd run out of Frangelico, and perhaps a little more attentiveness would have been better, considering the place was only 1/2 full. Still, good enough for the price.

If I could improve anything, it would be the lighting. The ambiance is nice but just a little too dim. The place has windows along the front and side. The contrast between the brightness near the windows and the rest of the restaurant makes it ironically harder to see. A little more light would be better.

This was a dining with 2 little girls experience. The food satisfied so many tastes and ages, hamburgers, jambalaya, steak, and pasta with meatballs for the kids. Everyone was happy. The wait staff and in particular, our waiter could to have been nicer or more professional. We were in good hands and could relax and enjoy our time.

This is a neighborhood spot for us. The staff is always friendly and ready to be of assistance.

This visit we did the HVRW menu and it was very good. My husband almost always get the steak here as it is always cooked perfectly. I tried the mussels this time which I never had before. I recommend them as well. The fra diavlo was good but the white wine is even better.

We like that the menu and it isn’t bogged down with too many items. It’s what keeps the food consistently good. We know we are just some of the many repeat customers to this neighborhood gem.

We were greeted at the door so warmly! The maitre de or managers came around to inquire about our experience and were very friendly. The spicy wings (our appetizer) was the best part of our meal. My husband and I were so disappointed with the entrees and dessert at Chat. The service was good but we chose to sit next to each other as opposed to opposite each other and the waiter kept coming in between to lay down the plates and cutlery but the service staff was very attentive. The food had very little flavor. My husband ordered the short ribs and I ordered the skirt steak. We ordered the apple crisp which was completely soggy and also lacking flavor.

Chat is warm and friendly local restaurant. There is something for everyone on the menu. The service is friendly and attentive. The portion size is ample. A little pricey including the wine list. We've have been there twice and impressed with the food and service each time. We shall return !!
