There are few times you continue to come back to restaurants in NYC but let me tell you that if you haven't been or if you haven't returned to Chat Noir you are MISSING OUT!!! Joanna, Edison, David, and Hassan will make sure you are treated like you are your own "island!" The service is BEYOND 5 STAR! If you... More

We ate part of the daily menu. Pea soup and chicken breast with avocado and basil. Both dishes were excellent. Also, Black Cat burger was thrilling! For desert we ate chocolate mousse and apple pie with vanilla ice cream. They surprised us with another dessert. Although the food was excellent, we were impressed by friendly staff especially Andreas. We highly... More

We stopped in for a light lunch after going to museums. My husband had the french onion soup, I ate the warm artichoke salad. Both were excellent. Best capuccino I've had in a long time, and my husband enjoyed his cote du rhone. We certainly would return.

She had the lobster salad with quinoa, walnuts cucumber with a mild curry dressing. The staff were efficient and discrete. What a great lunch on a rainy day in New... More

This place was horrible. 1st and last time. Xmas meal price was $270 for 2 people for really average crappy food. Waited endlessly to get our entree, and the appetizer and entree were very average not good at all. Dessert was NOT good. For $270 I expect something special. I've eaten MUCH better food for a quarter of the price.... More

Was skeptical to book this restaurant based on other reviews on open table/TripAdvisor. When I called for reservations and to inquire about the pre-fix menu; I was assured kids would eat half price. I went ahead a book based on location the the church service we were attending. Meal was mediocre at best, service was between good and great. It... More

Stumbled onto this after discovering La Goulue closed. Apparently one of the owners moved a couple of blocks away and has been enormously successful...we know why...from the warmest possible welcome from Suzane (owner) to the most charming servers and stunning presentations and flavors, we couldn't have been more pleased!

In NYC for holiday weekend. Pre Thanksgiving dinner. Three of us had Salmon, Lobster Ravioli and the hamburger. All were very good, well prepared. Service was first class. House French Pinot noir was overpriced at $66 but that's the norm. It was good. Not too noisy. Nice room and not pretentious.

Walking back to our hotel after a long day exploring Central Park and The Met we discovered this welcoming gem of a restaurant. Our friendly server Andreas was very knowledgeable about the menu and was fun to chat with - he added so much to our dining experience. We ordered cocktails and watched 'the regulars' being greeted and seated at... More

Good French food with a wonderful welcoming staff and nice neighborhood ambiance. The staff is welcoming and yet behaves professionally. Good beet salad and salmon with lentil dish is wonderful. Save some room for my favorite dessert, the "Floating island".

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
