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.

Very nice restaurant and the food was excellent. Service needs to be upgraded as we had to continually ask the waiter to come by our table. Prices are ok, but not outrageous. But $25 for a small souffle was over the top. Nice place for a businessmen's lunch. But the playing of Happy Birthday several times over the restuarant speakers interruppted my lunch with a company executive.

The restaurant was busy and we encountered difficulty getting seated in accordance with our reservation. When others were seated who arrived after us and who did not have earlier reservations, we expressed our unhappiness with the situation. The restaurant manager and matre d' responded after our complaint and did a good job of trying to rectify the situation. Their efforts were appreciated and generally effective. While we believe the situation should not have occurred, we were satisfied with the response. The food is good and we would not have any qualms recommending the restaurant had this not occurred.
