We chose Le Chat Noir to celebrate my father-in-law's 87th birthday as it is a favorite of his and we were not disappointed. I actually expected the service to be a bit aloof, really having nothing to base it on. I was greatly mistaken - the service was top notch but all the staff we came in contact with were friendly and very helpful. The only downside of it for me, and it was not the fault of the restaurant, is the day was extremely hot and I was not that comfortable, but not so uncomfortable that I wouldn't go again - we WILL go again! Highly recommend Le Chat Noir for a special occasion or just a nice lunch or dinner out.
The food was fabulous!
Food was just ok. Underseasoned and underwhelming, especially given price point.
Place was bustling. Food was great. Our house guests loved the atmosphere , ambience and charm, and great servers. I would recommend enthusiastically.
Look forward to our next meal at Chat Noir...
We had night expectation but did not enjoy the food at all
Need waitstaff who in a French restaurant don’t say “ I don’t speak any French” and at least know that Pommes Frites means French fries.
The atmosphere is cozy.
Escargots are too small, main dish cod was good, stuffed pork tenderloin was mediocre, creme caramel was excellent, and ice cream was OK.
We did the restaurant week lunch menu. Maybe it's better if you choose from regular menu.
Service is all right.
Nothing special, nothing bad, just an all right neighborhood restaurant.
Good eating place with sidewalk/porch dining.
CREPE FERA WAS GREAT, BEEF MADALION GOOD , SALMON VERY GOOD, THOUGH WISH THE SKIN HAD BEEN REMOVED BEFORE SERVING.
WE CAME SUN. EVE. AT 7P. NOISE LEVEL MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO TALK (INSIDE ROOM). BETTER IF WE HAD COME AT 5P OR 8P.
Our go to French restaurant for Bistro food. When we are homesick for France we come here. We had amazing ratatouille, fresh and savory. The crepe was filled with bay scallops in a cream sauce and the mussels were cooked to perfection. We are never disappointed
Food is always good here. Had a very nice meal, as usual.
Very nice evening. Great food and staff.
Delicious food in a charming bistro atmosphere. I highly recommend Le Chat Noir!
Such a delightful experience. Talking is easy, the food is delicious and the service experienced and cheerful. Wonderful neighborhood spot.
On a scorching summer day like the one we went for dinner, the room was extremely hot and the floor fan in the corner was not enough to cool of the room. As a suggestion, have few extra units for use in these super hot days. Eating a fabulous meal on suche a hot ambience is not agreable. Constructive criticism. Ana María
Le Chat Noir: My favorite neighborhood bistro. I especially like the holiday event meals. It was Bastille Day this time, and we loved the baked cod en croute. As for ambience-- this time the piped music was too loud, the only distraction from a lovely evening.
Food was very good, really near excellent. I had a fantastic salmon and my date had the bouillabaisse. Also enjoyed a nice bowl of carrot soup chilled. It was a busy nite and service was just a tad slow at points but still enjoyed immensely. They had doors open on front patio where we were and road was a tad noisy, but really enjoyed the entire visit a lot.
Bastille Day Weekend was fabulous. Enjoyed the special menu, usual great service and the ambiance. Making for a perfect evening to catch up with friends.
We had the 3-course pris fixe celebrating the Quatorze, and the food was lovely, with top-class choices. Because the restaurant was full, the staff was rushed off their feet, but they stayed cheerful and attentive. Everything was festive! We are close-to-regulars, and Le Chat is always pleasant and flavorful, but this evening was extra.
Celebrating friend’s birthday. Servers were very attentive. We enjoyed our lunch, quiet but unstuffy atmosphere. We enjoyed ourselves. Will return.
Wonderful food, very attentive service.
A good neighborhood restaurant with great French food. The service is always efficient and friendly; easy street parking nearby.
We had a lovely celebration at our favorite restaurant in the Washington DC area!
Went here for a date night and had a wonderful time! The duck was excellent! We initially sat down in the dining room, but it was a bit noisy so we switched to the outdoor patio, which was much more peaceful. If you're looking for good French food, would recommend Le Chat Noir.
Great neighborhood place. Perfect for a weeknight dinner. Also good for lunch
Lovely evening sitting on this French Atmosphere and Cuisine Restaurants open air deck with a quiet fan adding to the wonderful experience.
The new menu is not French! The duck breast with Polenta, and a salad just didn’t make any sense for a French menu. My guest ordered the daily special veal and it was not French either, besides, it was dry and not thin enough to be called scaloppine.
The suggestion for the wine was unexpected but so a propos, the service was impeccable, the food to die for (bouillabaisse, steak au poivre, and mushroom/cheese crepe, with profiteroles for desert). We sat out in the covered porch and the weather was splendid. Thus was my first visit to the restaurant but I will certainly return for a special occasion.
Brunch selections were numerous; the eggs benedict was very good. Brunch special which included one mimosa was an ok deal but nothing spectacular. However, unfortunately the service left a lot to be desired even though they were not particularly crowded; and even with them not being crowded, the noise level was ridiculous at times. The "outdoor" area was nice; not actually outdoor but like a sunroom, french doors open to the sidewalk so that was actually nicer than actually sitting out on the sidewalk.
The food is always excellent and the service attentive. I have come here for many special occasions.
Went for Father’s Day and the 3 course menu was excellent.
The food was very good, but the restaurant had a special Father’s Day menu which didn’t offer any kids menu items. So we were forced to purchase expensive meals for the kids. They also removed almost all of the crepes from the menu. Good food but very poor value. We overpaid for the experience by a long shot. Best to avoid this restaurant on special occasions. Not worth it.
The food was terrific, prices reasonable, service friendly and the atmosphere conducive to good conversation and enjoyment. Overall, a great experience!!
This is our second visit to Chat Noir, each time it's a special occasion. The food is always good, and reminds my husband of true French cuisine. Each time we've picked something new from the menu to try and were more than satisfied with every choice. We are definitely going to come back for another special occasion and are looking forward to trying something new on the menu!
I live near Le Chat Noir and while my family was in town visiting we decided to try it. It’s a great spot to take family. The staff’s recommendations for wine and food were spot on. I had the french onion soup to start, veal as an entree, and classic creme brûlée as a desert. I will be coming back!
Absolutely wonderful find in NW. we will definitely be back!
Not as good as it use to be. It’s just okay. The crepe has changed. For me, it was not a good change.
Celebrated my granddaughter's birthday and graduating from Brown University. We always get together to celebrate our June birthdays.
Feels very French, with fine food and service, and an excellent brunch menu. Free street parking.
Of course. Authentically French, excellent wine, just enough choices.
