Attending the Black Cat with my parents in law, who eat very healthily, and are quite conscious of food, nutrition and caloric intake! We had a great evening, the food was wonderful, the service excellent and the ambiance just right.
Our food choices which I highly recommend were:
- Scallops and pork belly....odd sounding combination but a delight to the palate.
- Steak and frites...every popular dish cooked and served to perfect at the Black Cat.
- Trenette - lovely fresh pasta, light and tasty.
- Duck confit with seasonal vegetables
I had called to make payment arrangements in advance because it was my father-in-laws birthday and he would have absolutely wanted to pay for the dinner and the staff was very helpful in arranging a special table, the prepayment, and even offering to serve dessert with a happy birthday wish. Unfortunately there was a communication mixup between the person I made the arrangements with and our server so none of the prearrangements actually happened (different table, plain dessert, and cheque brought to the table where I had to arm wrestle my father-in-law)....however this did not dampen our enjoyment of the evening at all. I did follow up with the Black Cat just to ensure my credit card would not be charged for the table where we were to have been seated (another group of four who were also enjoying their meals immensely), and was promptly contacted by the Black Cat with profound apologies and the offer of a $50 gift card.
As a small business owner I do go above and beyond to ensure my guests are happy so I was very pleased to see that the Black Cat also does the same. I happily accepted their apologies and the gift card and am looking forward to our next visit, some fabulous food, great wine and excellent customer service.
