Lovely little French restaurant. Wonderful service and the food was really excellent (try the mushroom soup!) The only comment is on the noise level. At peak times, it is truly impossible to hear without shouting. Other than that, an excellent dining experience.

I was looking for a place near the Frick (which it is- only a 5 minute walk). The food was fine. The ambiance was fine. The waiter was nice. But nothing was great, or even very good. The appetizer plate included an under ripe tomato. The salad with green beans was just a pile of green beans, nothing special or particularly tasty. Perfectly fine, which for NYC isn't saying much.

Bistro Chat Noir reminded me of why French food is often considered to be the world's best cuisine. The authentic flavors and menu options did not disappoint-- this is an experienced kitchen that cooks with confidence. Pricey and worth every penny.
