Charming atmosphere and impeccable service
Dining alone, the owner, Suzanne, immediately made me feel welcome here. She sat me next to some lovely people and we were soon chatting. Service was very attentive, but not over bearing. Atmosphere is charming, relaxed and upscale. I had the chicken salad which was...More ... read more

Fine restaurants excel in hospitality. They make people feel welcome and do and say things to ensure that the guests enjoy their experience. They also, of course, serve wonderful food. In my opinion Bistro Chat Noir is a Fine Restaurant. From the greeting we received, to the wonderful meal, to the final goodbye, Bistro Chat Noir exce ... read more

What a pleasant and delicious surprise. It was our first time at this restaurant and hopefully we will be able to return everything we had was delicious and prepared to perfection. The onion soup was one of the best I ever had. The steak tartare and tuna tartare were excellent, not the best I've had, but definitely first class. I had ... read more

Love Le Chat. French food and ambiance are soothing. Fine service, caring staff. It's a place I like to take friends to and to be a treat for me.

Great food in the Upper East Side! Service was exceptional and authentic. I would definitely return on my next NYC visit. We noticed the owner engaging with many of the diners so this is a local favorite as well.

I stumbled upon this place on my way to the Central Park Zoo just a few blocks away. The sunken patio area and cozy look we're very inviting. It was fairly empty as I was there at a funny hour, and I was alone so I appreciated the table the hostess chose in the corner facing the entire restaurant. I ordered a simple chopped chicken s ... read more

My husband and I go to Bistro Chat Noir every time we are in NYC. The food is always delicious and the staff is always courteous especially Hassan. During our most recent visit we had the pleasure of meeting the owner Suzanne who was most gracious.

Surprising lunch
We happened across this place yesterday and went in for lunch. A good welcome and ushered to the best table in the place. Quick with menus and drinks. Artisan bread. Two courses for two with soft drinks around 100 dollars. Thoroughly enjoyed the food although the garlic oil on the mushroom soup was a bit strong. Steak tartar was good ... read more

Bistro Chat Noir is always our first stop for lunch after we arrive in New York City. The truffle and crab mac' and cheese is not to be missed, and the lobster salad and the hamburger are consistently delicious. Friendly and efficient staff. Highly recommended!

We discovered this place by accident several years ago, and fell in love with it from the first visit.

I have eaten at several 3 Michelin star restaurants so with thst in mind I can say that this is my favorite restaurant anywhere. The food is tasty, creative, not overdone l. The service is second to none, I mean that, the staff really cares about you and your experience. I eat here at least three times a month because it's thst good.

The restaurant was bustling at weekday lunch, but the service was nonetheless gracefully attentive. It is an Upper East Side den, pleasant and tasteful, with clientele you mostly would expect.

Service was very nice however the short rib dish I had was not very good and certainly not worth the price. The salmon, duck magret, and coq au vin I have had in the past are all fantastic. The soufflée is delicious but be aware that it is enormous and is best shared between 2-4 people.

Traditional French Bistro in midtown neighborhood. Very fine food from a Bistro menu with contemporary additions. Service was very attentive without being over-bearing. Quality of food was great.

Had a most enjoyable lunch, the tables are a bit too close for any kind of a private conversation, but excellent for getting to know new people. Staff friendly and know what they are talking about.

Stumbled upon, will go back!
After a stroll in Central Park, we wandered over to the Upper East Side, looking for a late, quiet lunch. We glanced down the side street from Madison Ave and saw the sign. What a delightful find! Food-amazing; service-amazing! Thank-you, Andreas! We hope to be back one day.
