Very pleasant environment, outstanding food attentive staff. This is a small low key restaurant that combines, food, presentation, environment and service that could match most celebrity chef high powered places. Easy to access and on street parking in a pleasant neighborhood. I would suggest for a celebration or a quiet business meeting as well as just a nice neighborhood night out.
We haven’t been here for ages. So nice to rediscover it!
Food was good, not excellent because the lamp I had was hard to chew and the service was slow because they didn't have enough people working but I liked it in general, the food is not bad.
As always, the food combinations--especially on their holiday specials--are uniquely creative, delicious and beautifully presented. Right now it's our #1 restaurant choice.
The food is traditional French cooking, prepared very well. Service is attentive without being too much so. Wine list is appropriate to the food but neither fine taste nor expensive. In Paris, where I used to live, this would be a fine neighborhood place but would not rate tourist attention.
My wife and I greatly enjoyed our Valentines Day dinner (a day early Feb.13th)! Its very comfortable and a friendly place to have a meal. Food was very good as it always is for each and every course. An interesting wine list were we always manage to find a hidden gem. It made for a most enjoyable dining experience.
We have liked Le Chat Noir in the past, but this time the music was awful and too loud.
It's not close enough for us to be a neighborhood restaurant - wish it were, because we always enjoy dining here. There's a wide range of choices - hits this time were the crevettes de Calanques (six or seven very tasty shrimp atop "brik" and the sweetbreads main course (w/ polenta, celery, and carrot); the basic steak-frites was also excellent. There's also a nicely varied wine list, though if you really can't find something you like, we noted that some diners were BYO - is there a deal there? Service was excellent and friendly.
2nd time we've been-food was delicious! Comfortable, neighbor hood kind of ambience. Will go back!
The food and atmosphere, as always, were great. We are always pleased with our dining experience.
Excellent food, presentation and service. The dessert trio was fantastic.
We went for crepes. My friend wanted to order a custom crepe and the waiter said she could not. So she had boullabaise instead. My crepe was great - lamb sausage, apples and cranberries. The nutella dessert crepe was very small and seemed to have been warmed up in the microwave rather than freshly made. I like the room, and the french bread is delicious.
This is a favorite restaurant and one we frequent. I recommend it to friends for its authentic French cuisine and friendly service and pleasant atmosphere.
The special mahi mahi was in a delicious sauce, but the amount of seafood was a bit spare. The snail appetizer was sadly thin on the butter sauce. The waiter was kind enough to send it back for more, but that resulted in tough, rubbery snails.
The shrimp appetizer with Dijon was very good, had the duck and my date had the venison and both were excellent. Felt the escargot was overcooked.
I never leave reviews but this place was not good and ruined a special occasion. Went here on the last day of restaurant week. The menu was slightly different than what was online. Our server was brand new (told us 1st day) but was still very nice and capable- hated that the upper management seemed to be helicoptering her performance. Told us they didn't have a beer that was on the menu and tried to blame our waitress for saying the wrong thing. Learned they actually did have it after we ordered something else. The food was terrible. Ordered fish which tasted old and fishy and coq au vin which was just bland and slimy. Dessert was fine but mouse tasted like made out of a package. Crape was just fine. Will definitely not be eating here again.
consistently tasty food , attentive service and good value
We have been going to La Chat Noir for years and always enjoyed it understanding a haughty French attitude was simply part of the charm. This past Sunday we wanted a special place to take our grandson who had just achieved something wonderful that morning. The service was abominable. We got (after 15 mins)cold red wine and warm champagne without bubbles. the waitress forgot our order twice finally came back and said there was no quiche Lorraine. We waited 45 minutes for our meal and had to beg for bread and water. No mention of the celebration — why ask if you don’t care. Never again. This place has lost us.
We hosted a friend who was a newcomer. Most excellent and wide-ranging selection for restaurant week. As regulars we were again pleased to enjoy our neighborhood favorite.
Great venue. Main dining area appears to be a covered area built-out into the sidewalk providing a quaint bistro-like setting. Service was attentive. Food was presented well, but the 2 steaks ordered by our group had the appearance that they were recently defrosted.
