What a lovely surprise this place was! We had lunch here - I had the croque monsieur and my guest had the lettuce roll ups, which are strips of chicken and romaine lettuce with three different dipping sauces. Can't wait to go back for afternoon tea. The service was excellent. Make a reservation if you can - I didn't think... More

Breakfast, lunch, brunch! All amazing! The decor is charming, small space but plenty of room. Different pot of tea every time I go! Love that they added some veg. options. Scones, profiteroles, muffins, the outrageous French toast!!! Save your carbs for a visit to chat noir!

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!
