Quote as “unpretentious but stylish”, Le Chat Noir, casual bistro-style with Parisian left-bank feel features classic, traditional French cuisine and a large selection of savory and sweet crepes. The Wine Lounge atop Le Chat Noir restaurant pays homage to vintage -- wine-making and a retrospect to Comics Black & White silent films. With an impressive wine list and a wide-range of cocktails for you to choose from, it is a place to share an intimate moment. Cozy home-like ambiance, we look forward to nourishing you and tantalizing your taste buds in our art nouveau inspired Restaurant and Lounge.

Le Char Noir is a well kept secret....with a assorted menu for all palates, a varied daily Quiche, the best homemade French bread in Washington, DC and all reasonably priced.

Le Chat Noir is a neighborhood standby. It is a reasonably priced restaurant w/ authentic food and good service. We meet friends and family for dinner periodically, bring friends from out of town or dine there as a couple. The restaurant never disappoints.

Very reliable overall. Appetizers, main dishes good, would have liked some dishes to have been warmer and gougeres definitely could have been lighter. Service very friendly and authentic feeling ambiance.

Overall, our visit to the restaurant was good. I ordered the pork chop, and it didn't have much seasoning, but it was ok. In past visits, the Kir Royale drink has been very good, but at this visit, the drink was missing flavor and bubbles.

This neighborhood gem has good food and a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. We go often--the menu and wine list provide a variety of tasty options.

Pleasant cozy spot. Good service. Reasonable prices. Nice place for a catch-up lunch with friends. Tables spaced appropriately, lower noise level, attentive but unintrusive service. However, food was a bit disappointing. Atlantique omelet was a huge mass of plain bland eggs with a few tiny bit of salmon. No herbs or any hint of flavoring was noticeable. Salad, decent but ordinary. This was a very limited food sampling so will give another try or teo as all other features of the place are welcoming.

Nice ambiance, food was lousy. Poorly prepared and not according to any French menu I've ever eaten from -- and I have had many French meals. Server was not trained in service. All-around felt like amateur hour.

We have been to Chat Noir many times and will return. On this occasion we were disappointed with our table, which was upstairs by the bar.
