Always a pleasure at Chat Noir

I have eaten at Chat Noir several times and always had an enjoyable meal. I prefer to eat in restaurants that have tablecloths (I know. I get teased all the time!!). Chat Noir serves you a perfect meal, in a cozy setting, on china and tablecloths. One would expect an expensive lunch but their... read more

My wife and I visited this restaurant on a Saturday night for dinner. From the outset, the service was off. Instead of welcoming us and asking about drinks, the waiter started with the specials and walked away. When he finally came back to take drink orders, he didn't bring water or bread. After we asked about water, numerous times, a... More

Four of us arrived at 1:00 p.m. Today to celebrate a friend's recent retirement. All in all we had a lovely time.but...although the main meal was great and the tea and desserts scrumptious the wait staff left a lot to be desired. When I asked what was wrong when we had to wait quite a long time between lunch and... More

This restaurant is wonderful place to go for brunch, lunch or dinner although they have easily have over 50 teas for you to try. It is small enough to make you feel that you are personally taking care of yet the entries are also very unique. The owner and head chief, Emma, is always around to lend a hand to... More

Came here with a group of 8 for high tea. We had made reservations and were immediately seated upon arrival. The waitstaff were extremely friendly and super helpful in answering our questions when it was time to order. All of us got the tea service while some of us ordered other things. The only other thing I tried was the... More

Such a girly place for a nice get together for a traditional tea with desserts or a light lunch/dinner. My friends and I try to go at least once a year because there's no place like it in Nassau County.

This is, hands down, my wife and I's favorite Resturant. Great food, super friendly staff, reasonable pricing. The only bad thing I can say is that with virtually all eateries in Rockville Center, parking can be a real problem on the weekends especially. Chat noir is,definitely worth the effort though! This is our go to place for special occasions, such... More
