Loved this restaurant. Alex, the bar tender, restored my faith in bar tending as a profession. The lobster, truffle, bacon Mac and cheese was sublime. My duck magret delicious. The chocolate souffle was scrumptious and Alex served an espresso martini with it. Overall an excellent dining experience.

Took a male business associate because of the hearty and tasty bistro food. The onion soup is a true reduction of caramelized onions. I love their burger. My associate had the prix fixe which he loved - down to the last bite of the perfectly grilled salmon.
They have a reasonably-priced list of by-the-glass wines. The service is old school professional. It's a charming place that you step down two steps to get into. It's cozy but not cramped.
It's run by Suzanne who is always there making sure everyone is happy and every thing is running smoothly.
My female friends love the appetizers and salads. There's something for everyone on the menu.

Our second visit and the food was spectacular. The crab salad and tuna tartare were equally delicious. I had the Cod over oven roasted beet risotto that was perfectly cooked and tasty. My husband had the artichoke ravioli's that was mouthwatering. My only recommendation is an upgrade to the wine list. We love French wines from Southern Rhone and the selection is very slim.

A very pretty French restaurant with very good food. We've had some nice meals here in the past where we could have a conversation. On our last visit the restaurant was incredibly noisy, but hopefully that was an unusual occurrence.

A great location for a very "New York" dinner on the east side. This is one of those non-trendy,
classic New York restaurants that offers a comfortable ambience and nicely prepared French food. The service was excellent; our salmon was perfectly prepared. Although very crowded
on a Saturday evening, the noise level permitted conversation, and the wait staff was very
willing to accommodate. There are some very good selections on the wine list that won't
break the dining budget. This restaurant is a welcome change from overly precious, and over priced cuisine found elsewhere.

Bistro Chat Noir is a lively, youthful, energetic bistro and yet, somehow, the noise level is sufficiently controlled to allow conversation to flow! The service is friendly, professional and dependable. The food was very good and the salmon particularly flavorful with a good texture. To me this is a classically French bistro. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the attractive and lively atmosphere. However, anyone with allergies should be cautious because though they apparently tried to keep me "safe," I suffered symptoms the following day. It is difficult to keep wine (sulfites) out of French bistro food!

By far the best restaurant in the neighborhood. Meant for real New Yorkers, not tourists staying at the Four Seasons like all the others. The cheese souffle is the best in the city.

Delightful spot intimate with interesting food preparations. The wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. If you have a birthday or special occasion they know how to help you celebrate in a fun but elegant way. I’d recommend this neighborhood find to anyone who enjoys great food. Let the staff recommend the champagne, you won’t be disappointed!

Charming Neighborhood Restaurant small butt with adequate room. Food was cooked perfectly and tasty. Everybody was friendly and welcoming. This will be a restaurant that the next time I come to New York I will look to return to. The only minor flaw was the souffle was delicious but a little over cooked and slightly dry but everything else was executed perfectly. It was a wonderful experience we look forward to having again

I couldn't wrap my mind around a glass of rose for $18, but other than that it was a flawless experience. Will return.

We have dined at Bistro Chat Noir several times over past 8 years (brunch & dinner). Frequently, we are with our daughter who is now 7 years old. The servers are always so attentive and accommodating even with young dining companion!:) Our favorite waiter has such a great sense of humor there and makes us feel at home. Food -- Don't miss the Duck and Truffle Mac and Cheese! Also, Chocolate Souffle is worth the calorie splurge!
