Love this local gem

Small restaurant with always fresh and delicious dishes. It is a lunch with the girls place - but the food is so good, I don't mind being the only male in the room. In particular, the fish and chips are great as are the sandwiches. But make a reservation - it is very small and fills quickly.

Went here for dinner with my wife. I struggled to find something to order. It's the restaurant equivalent to a chick flick. The beef dish was very poor. The sides were cold. I will say the onion soup was awesome. It's a lunch place for the non foodies. I don't know how they survive in the larger space but maybe... More

I think this is the best restaurant in RVC and if you don't have a reservation it is very hard to get a table especially on weekends. Great High Tea (although to be more authentic they need to heat the tea cups). All other items on menu are wonderful.

I have taken family and friends to high tea and I had Chat Noir cater my daughter's baby shower.. People kept exclaiming about the food! I especially love the high tea. It is served in lovely cups and there is a great selection of teas.

Very charming small intimate restaurant although I do hear that they will be expanding in their present location. It has such a warm atmosphere. They have many types of tea, scones, but also delicious and interesting food choices. I highly recommend it!!

I've had a bday party, bridal shower and numerous meals at Chat Noir and we're never disappointed. The food is delicious every time and the scones are the best I've ever had. The ambience is adorable and the staff friendly. Perfect place always!

Four of us went here based on other reviews. We were not disappointed. The ambiance was charming and warm. The service was efficient, pleasant and well-timed. We wanted to linger over our meal, ordering a course only after another had been served. The waitress was very accommodating when we mentioned this and we appreciated that. We were not rushed and...

Everything we had was delicious, especially the fondue. The fondue was rich and filling so we had salads as our main meals. Both were fresh, unique, and tasty. Bread basket and, of course, croissants came home with us for breakfast next day. We hope to return when next in the area.

I saw another review that said that this was a jewel in Rockville Center. It truly is. Food was delicious and inspired, service were impeccable and the ambiance is very charming, very romantic. We will definitely be returning here.
