My experience there is awesome. I come to her three times a year from out of town and I never miss coming to the restaurant. Thank you for a great time

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.

We had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner enhanced by the friendliness and helpfulness of the wonderful staff. It was a most enjoyable experience, and we will definitely return.

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.

Great uptown chic and yet friendly place for either an intimate dinner or a business lunch

Very cute place but very expensive. $30 for a hamburger plus $2 for a slice of raw onion. Will think twice before returning

This was a very pleasant meal in a cozy spot. The ambience was relaxed and the noise level was at the right level for good conversation. We all enjoyed our meals very much. We will definitely return.

Really great dinner with a VIP date. This was my fourth experience at Chat Noir...two lunches and two dinners. Exceptional french bistro style dishes with excellent service. Good value too.

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.

comfortable, neighborhood spot- local UES crowd.
A bit pricey for decent food but overall a pleasant retreat

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!
