I recently met friends here for lunch. The restaurant was quite busy so a reservation seems to be needed. We all enjoyed our tea & lunches of tomato & zucchini galette, spinach & feta quiche, & carmelized onion & goat cheese tart (my fave) all accompanied by a lovely salad. This is just a nice, bright & friendly place to... More

This was our first time and we had been meaning to try for a while. Both the tea room and restaurant are really cute and old fashioned looking with the details on the ceiling. We came for dinner. The biscuit and bread basket was great. For the appetizer we got the onion soup. It tasted nice and fresh and the... More

This was my second time here for the tea service. It's just lovely. They have a great assortment of teas to choose from. The 3 tier tea tray is loaded with delicious sandwiches, scones and desserts. It's actually too much food! The dining room is cheery with crisp white table clothes, flowers on the table and nice high ceilings. The... More

We went for tea service. The tea and scones were fine, but finger sandwiches and pastries were a huge disappointment. Turkey was dry and to the extent there was any creativity in the sandwiches (like ham and jelly) it just didn't work. The pastries were simply uninteresting. Service was friendly.

This is a charming spot where you can go for a pleasant lunch or dinner. There is food geared to the appetites of both men and women, which is a welcome change. Service is good and the food is delicious. They have recently expanded their space and have maintained their quality and service.

My experience was just plain "awful" at Chat Noir last Friday night. A friend and I had dinner there. We were the only other couple in the whole dining room when we first arrived, so I am not sure why the service was so bad!!! Our waitress had a BAD ATTITUDE. After giving us the check, she kept coming to... More

Such a nice elegant tea house restaurant with exposed interior brick, white tablecloths, with a yummy breakfast/lunch we had. Great place to go with all the ladies.

When Chat Noir first opened it was half its present size. I would eat there often, enjoying their ambiance and food, but I was always unable to make a reservation for a Sunday morning brunch. However, I didn't let that keep me from enjoying the delicious food and continental service whenever I was able. Doubling their size hasn't diminished the... More
