Our group ordered beef, tuna tartare, duck cassoulet, chicken supreme and roasted beef salad. All were excellent.
Great food. Familiar waiter so he likes working there. Wasn't busy so service seemed slow.
Excellent food in a lovely setting, well prepared and well presented.
It was amazing! Our server was amazing as well. If I had any complaint it would be that I haven't come here soon enough!
The mussels were especially great! Our table was close to one end of the bar next to street window and very comfortable...one loud person at the bar made conversing a little challenging. The menu was varied and we will recommend going to our friends and return ourselves.
Always a great experience with amazing food. Never dissapoints.
Hopeful service and food, amazing valentines dinner with my wife.
A bit noisier than I remember from the last time - a couple of years ago. But not so loud you couldn't talk comfortably. Was on Valentine's Day, so really busy. Service was casual, friendly and very efficient. The waiter made us feel like he had nothing else to do except look after us (even though he was roaring around treating everyone else equally well!)
We had liver and onions! The waiter acknowledged this is not a dish for everyone, but we loved it. Done perfectly, with comfortable portions size, delicious veg accompanying, The prices overall were very reasonable, considering the quality and number of delicious-looking choices.
We are going back soon!
The food was ok, not great, not bad, just ok. The waitress seemed disinterested in being there. Noise level was loud. That being said, I mentioned my dessert was not great and she removed it from the bill. I was appreciative of that.
Everything about our Valentine's meal was incredible! The only thing that we really need are some gluten free options for children - our daughter has celiac. Unfortunately they do not have a separate fryer for their fries. Looking forward to returning again though without the kids.
Valentines Lunch. Good time and great food.
I do enjoy the atmosphere in the restaurant, and the servers are knowledgeable and prompt. The beef wellington was very well prepared. I enjoyed my last couple of visits.
Very enjoyable meal out. Lovely decor, good food and service.
My wife is a vegan, and we ate at Chien Noir some years ago, and were treated in a rather unfortunate way, with the waiter stating that they don't have vegan options, that it is a french restaurant and that the "cook likes to cook with meat". We were a bit floored by the policy of the restaurant being presented in such a blunt manner. As a result, we have not eaten at Chien Noir for a number of years.... until yesterday when we decided to try it again. We were very pleasently surprised by the kind welcome from the waitress who guided my wife to a number of vegan and vegetarian options, and made reference to a cook who was very vegan friendly. It appears that Le Chien Noir has changed its tone and attitude toward vegans, and we would highly recommend this restaurant and the one next door (Atomica) as being vegan friendly establishments. All the food and service in fact were excellent.
Didn’t enjoy the food (mushroom pate was bland, french onion soup cheese was hardened, mussels didn’t have flavour, pretty sure the burger patty was store bought... etc.), expected a lot better for the price. However, the service was fine and it had a nice atmosphere.
I had a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. I will definitely return!!!! Thank you :)
Food was a little heavy and I was surprised that there was no lunch menu on Saturday, only brunch.
Always great food and great staff... definitely one of our favourite places to relax and dine!
The lamb was under seasoned, but the cheese plate was delicious and the decor was splendid.
Great food and menu choices and love the atmosphere.
The food and service were absolutely fantastic. We loved the whole experience. Thank you!
I enjoyed a lovely date night at Le Chien Noir on Saturday Jan 18. Food was great, the Maison salad is a go-to of mine - delicious every time! I had the Arctic char which was very tasty and my date has the liver and onions, also said to be tasty. We finished our meal with a speciality coffee - I thoroughly enjoyed the Chien Noir drink - so yummy and perfect on a cold snowy evening. Thank you for a tasty dinner, good service and nice ambiance.
To noisy, for find dining. Don’t like to sit on top of strangers. Tables to close together. Could not have conversations without the people siting next to you listening. Food was excellent and service was good. Not sure if I would return due to your sitting arrangements.
We had great service, the food was absolutely perfect and the creme brule was to die for.
The meals were Excellent and wine list good Only thought would be to have a few bottles available at lower price point. But great night overall
Had a bad experience a few years ago, but decided to try again. I was pleasantly surprised. The house suggestion for wine was a winner. I had duck wings for an appetizer which were juicy and meaty. The lamb shank was of a large size and very nicely seasoned. The restaurant itself was not too loud and a nice ambience, and the staff was very attentive. I won't hesitate to return.
The only one suggestion I have is to either add to the charcuterie (for 7) or describe it as suitable for 5. One of my guest was a restaurant owner from Ottawa and was quite surprised on how small the portions of cheese and meet were with the board ordered for seven.
Everything else was fabulous!
Food and service were amazing. Our server was the exact perfect blend of attentive/friendly without being intrusive. One of our favourite go-to's for special occassions!
The service was slow and perfunctory. The restaurant was not full and there did not seem to be a reason for the delays. We were there for an hour before we even had our cocktails!
The food was god but did not make up for the waitstaff.
Wonderful food and service! Always a pleasure dining here!!
Great lunch enjoyed the food ,
service and overall restaurant
We had a very quiet lunch here after Christmas and the food was excellent! Loved the soup and club sandwich was great too!
As usual excellent experience.
Excellent meal. Both of the dishes we had were mouth watering. I had a scallop entree and my partner had a delicious lamb entree.
Excellent service to start. And the meal was fantastic. The escargot was presented so differently on the bone marrow and was so delicious
Our group of 4 had a wonderful evening! We also liked the idea it was not just a set menu that we had the option of set menu or order off the menu!
Service on New Year’s Eve was amazing. We asked to move tables due to high noise and we were able to be accommodated. Flat iron steak was cooked perfectly to our taste. Only negative is pathway to restrooms could do with upgrade as could actual restrooms.
It was overpriced for what it was. I was disappointed with both the soup and the dessert.
Really nice French bistro style food. We were seated by the kitchen/bathrooms which was not ideal but it was New Year's Eve so it was busy otherwise we definitely would have asked for a better table. If you are making a reservation I suggest specifying you would like a booth. Really good food, great service, lovely drinks selections. I had steak which was really good but now feel like I should have tried something a bit more exciting.
Had to wait a while for the appetizer. Then even longer for our food even though we were the first ones in the restaurant and ordered before another table showed up. Burger was cold, hard, and grossly over cooked. Cassoulet was dry and topped with an overcooked egg. Probably the last visit for the both of us.
