The Black Cat - Cambria
Open since July 4th, 2002, Black Cat Bistro is known for serving Innovative Farm Fresh Fare. The menu changes often as Black Cat Bistro consistently strives to present fare that is reflective of seasonal, local produce and organically raised or sustainable product.The food is especially cognizant of wine pairings to electrify the palate. The Black Cat has received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for nine years in a row.
Black Cat Bistro is small with 45 seats and this is part of what makes it such an intimate dining experience. The service is attentive, unpretentious and refined. The dining rooms are decorated in soothing colors and fabrics. Down pillowed benches frame the edges of two of the three rooms. Candle light adorns the tables covered with white linen. Food is served on white china and wine in crystal Riedel stemware.
Very mediocre and bland food. Deep fries kale without telling you.
Food was a amazing experience for the palate! Just the right amount of attention from the wait staff and food items brought out at a nice pace. Patio seating because of covid regs however we were quite comfortable.
We had a wonderful meal here. The clam chowder soup was the best. The maple duck breast was perfectly done and flavorful. It was a cool evening and the patio seating would have been uncomfortable, but they had heaters. The service as spot on. We will definitely return.
We enjoyed our meal at The Black Cat. The ambiance was a bit pedestrian for the menu choices/prices. The food was good but again a little pricey.
We had a wonderful meal and fun evening!
Favorite seafood restaurant in Cambria. Everything was fantastic.
We were in the Cambria area for our anniversary and wanted to try somewhere we hadn't been. Everyone in our party enjoyed their appetizers & meals. I especially loved the pork in broth and the scallop entree...everything was yummy! I would recommend and will go back there again when in area.
My wife had the scallops and I had the Yellowtail. Both were very good.
Food was great and so was the service!
An excellent menu and good service. The patio lacked ambience but hey we are in the middle of a pandemic. The food was outstanding. I'll be back.
Great dinner, amazing pork chop, scallops were on point as well. Most importantly, they paid attention to the open table note I inserted and brought my significant other a birthday dessert without prompting!
This was my fiancé and I's first trip to Cambria and I read a lot about the Black Cat and their menu. I will say, none of my research disappointed! This place was delicious, the staff was friendly, the ambiance was adorable. I had the rib-eye and my fiance had the salmon, both were yummy! We will for sure be going back when we are in town.
Loved the food the staff was exceptional and lovely ambiance. We are returning in December and we’ll definitely come again!!! Rough times during this pandemic and we felt very safe.
We had a lovely evening. Safety measures were in place but did not detract from enjoying our evening. Food was delicious and service was attentive. Cute little place.
The food never disappoints. Love the tuna and my husband loves the pasta. We also shared bread pudding which was fantastic!
Dinner was great at Black Cat! Food was very good and service excellent!
Second time visiting Cambria area and dining at Black Cat. Second tine did not disappoint.
Always a delicious and pleasing experience!
I had some doubts about freshness but the food was still tasty and the service was great. We are outside were I was a little creeped out by the excess spider webs and rotting floorboards on the front patio but I suspect that this will improve as outdoor dining become the standard.
Wonderful service, great cheese platter! Mashed potatoes were very good!
very tasty dinners given the difficulty of having to serve all diners on the patio. the view over the parking lot at sunset was actually quite nice.
We have now eaten at the Black Cat twice. Both times very good food. we will be back again. Thank you
Food was well prepared and delicious. Menu had many great choices. Great service. The Covid seating was limited.
We sat on the front porch due to the restrictions on indoor dining. The food was outstanding and the service was great. Highly recommended.
We were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant did a good job of acknowledging it so thank you for that! The salmon was quite good and cooked perfectly. The arugula salad seemed quite salty and the Brussel sprouts were drowning in oil. The outdoor covered patio was ok but did seem a little closed in for this pandemic time and felt like it should have been more open. All in all a very nice experience and we enjoyed the evening there.
Loved this awesome French bistro in Cambria. The food and service were amazing. From appetizers all the way to dessert - everything tasted great.
During this pandemic, they are serving dinner on an enclosed porch which is very comfortable and warm. The scallops and salmon were excellent. Highly recommend as a place to go during these hard times.
Unfortunately this restaurant was one of the worst experiences I have had in a long time. Raw meat, bland food, bacon bits for "bacon jam"... very poor quality especially for the prices.
Great Food, wonderful service and a charming setting! What could be better?
So thankful to be able to dine in. Our ribeyes were perfectly prepared!
It was very warm inside the restaurant. The food was good but limited menu. Service was very good. Small room with a lot of conflicting / distracting conversations.
Great service our server Sarah did a great job. Really nice patio seating.
The food was good; however, their website is not up to date. We chose this restaurant based on the menu posted on their website: abalone and octopus. When we got there, neither abalone nor octopus. Disappointing, but what we ordered was good.
This is an amazing place to have a nice meal. We sat outside and it was lovely. The service was outstanding and the food fresh and delicious.
My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner while we were staying in Cambria. The staff were very friendly and did an excellent job. The food was quite good and we gave it a 7.5 out of 10. The biggest issue for this restaurant is the curb appeal for the building and the condition of the interior which was unfortunately pretty abysmal.
We felt very safe - good social distancing. Very cozy restaurant.
Great food, services, values.
The staff was friendly though it took a little time to get our order in, probably as a result of the charges we're all going through. I might add another person to the staff, we enjoyed our meal and the overall experience was a "B."...scott
Delicious meal. Gnocchi appetizer was fabulous as was the scallops. Wild salmon was delicious too. Looking forward to returning. Heard the lamb was scrumptious! Very good service.
