Very small, intimate place. You can have tea service lunch or regular lunch off the menu. We opted for the tea. That came with a tray of sandwiches, one of each type, enough for the 3 of us. Then a tray of scones and desserts. We were 3 ladies and we really enjoyed it...........but it would not be enough food... More

What a lovely, intimate little jewel this place is. Emma the owner is an absolute doll. Had my daughters shower here - took over the whole place. Cane in while the earlier diners were finishing up to decorate with balloons, streamers, etc and to move tables once they left. The staff helped with everything. Brought in our own cake which...

The first time there I was skeptical because I was not a fan of French food. Boy was I wrong. The food and service was fantastic. The restaurant is small and cozy. The prices are great. Don't miss it.

We recently hosted a family birthday celebration for my daughter at Chat Noir. Instead of having everyone order individually from the menu, we used a prix-fixe menu that included shared appetizers, soup, and salad, then a choice of a few main courses, plus dessert. The food and the service were both outstanding - not an easy task for a party... More

I was in for a visit to RVC and saw this restaurant had a "tea" so we gave it a try. How delightful was their high tea service. The staff was very accommodating and the food was delicious. The scones were the best I've had since I was in Ireland! I will be back!

I've been to Chat Noir multiple times, with friends, my mom, and even for a baby shower! The small, independent and personal vibe of the place is fantastic. The tea selection is great, and the food is classic, elegant, and yummy. I've done the tea for two service with finger sandwiches and pastries and have also just ordered a la... More

This is a perfect place for excellent food with wonderful service. I had a lovely brunch with a dear friend, catching-up on our lives. It feels like you're in a European cafe.

If you are looking for a lovely, gracious place to eat that is not pretentious you have found it. Simple atmosphere with a wonderful menu that is not packed with random items. Wine available but no cocktails. Delicious food. Wonderful service.Never disappointing. Excellent!

Spectacular! Last weekend I held my daughter's baby shower at Chat Noir. There is not a single thing I would change. Emma and her staff are wonderful. Attentive without getting in the way, helpful, accommodating and gracious. Anthony, one of the servers re-arranged tables and schlepped giant packages with a smile on his face. He was truly happy to help.... More

Chat Noir is very average. The food is good, but definitely could be better. The decor is nice but sparse (and not in a good way). And the service seemed to be the same. Our waiter was quick to bring menus and then disappeared for awhile. We ordered things that he wrote down, repeated back to us to verify, and... More
