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

This was our 2nd visit to this restaurant. We loved it just add much as the first time. We'd thought we'd have and early dinner, arriving just after 4p, but we're told dinner doesn't begin until 5p. Instead we ordered from the lunch menu and were not disappointed. We ordered the butternut squash,sausage,fig pie and a pear pecan salad, along... More

Recently had lunch with friends in the additional corner space they expanded to and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The lovely decor adds to the wonderful dining experience, which is always delicious, especially when coupled with one of the many tea options they serve. Our waiter was attentive and helpful in selecting our meals and tea choices. Wonderful spot.

The food here was decent. I wasnt to impressed with the banana foster french toast as it was a little dry. The baxter pie was good. There scones were pretty good as well. The breakfast menu was pretty limited. Nothing blew me away here
