Great food... great service... had a great time
Always a great place for date night! wait staff is superb! Food is delicious and well presented! Great atmosphere for romance!
Loved the experience
This is one of my favourite restaurants. When I visit my family in Kingston we always try to have a night to enjoy the delicious food. The charcuterie and oysters are always fresh but my go to is the tuna tartare! It’s also a great spot for picky eaters, they can experience a delicious meal while the foodie in the family also enjoys their meal.
my chicken was greasy & under cooked, my husbands steak was cold. felt sick all night and the next day. attached is a photo of my chicken & my takeout container after being in the refrigerated greasy :( went right in the garbage
New Year’s Eve. Special menu, not too crowded..just what we wanted! Our server, Taylor was great, always good service at chien noir. Wish they had a bigger oyster selection (but it’s winter, what can you do)still, overall a good experience. As usual!
The food was very good and the presentation was incredible!
Lovely to find good quality French fare so close by. My husband and I just returned from a trip to Paris a few weeks ago and we found the food comparable to the real deal!
Fantastic place to grab a bite knowledgeable and personable staff
Catching up with a girlfriend. We both loved our meal and the atmosphere, very rustic and beautiful decor
Our favourite restaurant in Kingston. We also love it’s affiliated restaurants.
Food and service fine but small crowded table for 3 in front window was cold and colder every time door opened; a little too close to others for comfort
Our dinner was excellent! The server was amazing ! He was very attentive, helpful and great to chat with.
I had a very nice dinner for my wife's birthday here, with some family. Everything was perfect, great service, excellent food. I did think the tables were a little close together for the atmosphere, and the check was certainly not cheap, but for an otherwise perfectly done classy meal out I can sort of understand. Overall 4.5 out of 5, would reccomend.
delightfully service excellent wine recommendation. perfectly executed. will return.
Great food and ambiance. We will definitely return again. Wait staff is attentive.
Our meal was amazing and the service was excellent!
We got to our 8:00 reservation around 7:55 and waited until 8:15 to be seated.
The service was normal, nothing spectacular but nothing horrible.
The food was phenomenal.
We would definitely go again.
It was my third time at Chien Noir Bistro and the food was perfect, as always. Love the bistro atmosphere and the locally sourced food is excellent. This is one of my favorite places and I will surely visit again.
We were a party of 3 and we all enjoyed our meals very much. Especially enjoefinding things not always seen on a menu - cassoulet was outstanding. Great service and advice from Josh, he was attentive without hovering.
The food was outstanding! Niçoise Salad was perfectly interpreted. A taste of the Mediterranean, right here in Kingston. The service was attentive without being intrusive. It was a lovely lunch!
I have been dining at the Le Chien Noir for many decades. I appreciate the incremental changes made over the years.
See note to restaurant. There is very little more to say, I hope that’s enough “characters” for you.
Simply awesome. Great food and atmosphere. Revcomend 100%
Very nice date at Chien noir
We had an amazing brunch.
food was superrrr charred. too pricy for quality. would not recommend this place to anyone unless you want to give away money to a bunch of scammers trying to sell you crap in the name of French experience.
Very nice space, and authentic tastes. Expensive but nice for a special occasion
Excellent food and service!
We had a great experience with yummy dinner and drinks before our event. Our server was excellent with a great sense of humour. I love this restaurant with its lovely atmosphere and I’m always pleased with the food and service. I highly recommend it!
Reservation online, fine. However, no possibility to choose seating, not good.
I had tuna tartar ...delicious..a beer and a few oysters...everything was excellent the oysters were fresh although a bit small , maybe the variety I picked..my wife had the flatiron steak it was perfection and delicious..a bit pricey but a great night out for a treat.
Disappointed with meals. Were fair but not fabulous.
The tables at the front are pretty tiny and a bit too close together. The food is delicious!..I had the mussels..broth was a meal in itself! The creme brulee is unctuous.
Great place for a date!
Great food and service. If you are in Kingston and want to get together for dinner with friends, this is just a place to be!
The menu has changed a lot since my last visit, and I enjoyed the updated god and format. The restaurant has an accessible entrance, but the washrooms are down 12 steps or so, which is unfortunate. Food very good, with the tuna tartare being exceptional. Service excellent.
Excellent food and ambiance. Very attentive staff. Main dish could have been a bit warmer. Lively and fun.
Chein Noir is the jewel in the Black Dog crown along side Atomica and Harpers. All three places do what they do well. Above average quality, with appropriate pricing. Not expensive but there is no case for exceptional value either. Consistently a good meal and that is really what you want. Much better than any of the chain kitchens like Keg, Milestones, Jack Astor's etc...
