Sweet tiny restaurant in rvc. Fresh fresh food!

Great little restaurant, only seats 20 or so people. Maybe 10 tables. Great fresh food, nice menu, intimate service. A real ladies lunch spot. Take your time and relax. Everyone will enjoy. I bring my mom here once a month. Always a great meal. Reservations are a must!

My 14 yr. old daughter and I wanted to have afternoon tea. We were looking for a cute, authentic place were we could get the whole tea experience, with little desserts like scones and finger sandwiches and tea. We also didn't want to have to drive so far and this place was only 15 minutes away. I was a little... More

This is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE places! It is our "go to" special occasion places. Birthday with the ladies, New Year's Day with my husband and have even take a few cooking classes there which included dinner, wine and you got to take home what you made! I can't say enough about Emma the owner and her INCREDIBLE... More

I met a friend here for lunch. It has about 10 tables and the tables were all decked out with white linen tablecloths and floral china plates. The decor is very cozy and "homey" and the food was great! I had the beef bourginone (spelling??) My friend had the quiche. We both enjoyed our meal and I then pigged out... More

This was our first time at this small quaint cozy cafe. It has appx. 10 tables. We did have a reservation. Our appetizers were the mussels in wine, pretzel pizza with chicken & beef barley soup. Not a crumb or drop of soup was left! The main course we had was: salmon with honey mustard coating, skirt steak, filet mignon... More

Great ladies place to sit back, have a cup of tea and chat with your gal friends. Wide variety of teas. Great food and desserts. Reservations are a must for Saturday/Sunday brunch.

Quaint little place with approximately 12 tables. Two have couches as seats (by the windows). That being said, reservations are recommended! Have been there twice for dinner and tried different menu items. Did not disappoint. Both fish and beef dishes tasty. Although only 1 waitress and 1 bus boy for the entire restaurant, they were attentive enough.

I met my daughter at Chat Noir for brunch on a Saturday morning. Although the restaurant was quite empty I was asked if I had a reservation. I did, but I asked if it mattered. I was told they would not be able to seat me even though the restaurant stay sparsely occupied during our visit. In New York the... More

My husband and I went to Chat Noir Sunday for brunch - finally got a reservation! They can be hard to come by. The food was excellent, the crowd a bit noisy.
