A charming experience

If you like large, noisy places, do not go here. This is a small, quaint restaurant. I have had the pleasure of dining here for lunch and breakfast several times. Only once for dinner. The scones are divine! My go to is the goat cheese and onion tart. The accompanying salad is perfectly dressed... read more

This little gem is a genuine find for dinner. Terrific food, nice "tea house" type venue at incredibly low prices. Large portions that can be shared without a sharing charge. The menu is limited. I had wonderfully crisp cod fish 'n' chips, my companions shared well prepared and tasty lamb chops. Note that the venue is small and is extremely... More

Great spot for meeting with girlfriends. Food is delicious and fresh. You never feel rushed or hurried by your servers. Must make reservations! Have been here for wedding shower, baby shower, birthday parties and small intimate lunches and breakfasts. Would recommend highly!!!

This place is elegant but small. Reservations are a must. The menu is great though.....tea is plentiful and such a variety. With your own decorated tea set, you feel like you are in England. Each time, I have had the crab cake sandwich with side salad, the banana French toast and curry chicken salad with raisins. I have never been... More

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!!
