We celebrated my husbands 50th birthday.. It was his first time and absolutely loved it! Service was exceptional!
Flat iron steak so tough it was inedible.
Negroni was not great, they use regular vermouth instead of sweet red
Had beet salad, was outstanding
Vegetarian squash dish was good but squash could be cooked more throughout to be softer
Mushroom risotto was very nice
Fantastic food and excellent service! Will return!!
The food was amazing as always the service was great the Ambiance was nice and a respectable noise level just wish we could have had a seat further away from other people half the restaurant was empty
We celebrated a friend’s birthday.
Service was slow. Several of us wondered if our order was lost. Our waiter apologized explaining that there was a mad rush and the kitchen was very busy. We received our food a half hour after the restaurant seemed to clear out.
Four out of five of us enjoyed the food. One of us did not like the food. TheIr plate was cleared without any questioning as to why it wasn’t eaten.
Apart from that service was lovely and a good time was had. Our reservation was for 6:30 and we finished our food at 9 pm. Slow but enjoyable dining. I’d go back.
As always excellent food in a beautiful environment served by friendly and very attentive wait staff!
The price has gone up. But that’s ok. However, the quality was deteriorating. Way too salty.
I had a wonderful birthday dinner there with my family. Our server Kim, was absolutely amazing. The food did not disappoint! I would definitely recommend Chien Noir. Lillian
Service was very slow. Had a reservation but was placed at a crappy table that was awkwardly close to the next. Food was over salted and steak not cooked to specification. Ambiance/decor is lovely but doesn’t make up for mediocre food and service.
Excellent food, the shrimp appetizer was amazing, the raw oysters were very fresh, liver and onions very good, risotto was a bit bland, Caesar salad outstanding, pumpkin risotto excellent. Seasonings very good on the food. Our server , Brandon provided excellent service and didn’t charge us for a cocktail that one of our group did not like but changed it for something she liked. Excellent relaxed atmosphere, my favorite restaurant in Kingston.
It’s not what it use to be. Steak for two ordered medium rare but was more like medium. Béarnaise sauce that had separated and was without a hint of vinegar or tarragon. The meat however was of very good quality. The restaurant was almost empty.
Nice place, would hope for more vegetarian options on the menu though. A bit noisy where we were.
Our server was very nice indeed.
Wonderful restaurant. There was an issue with another group laughing very very loudly. One of our party took it into her own hands and shouted at the same time. They were moved to the back part of the restaurant and it was much appreciated.
Lovely meals and excellent, friendly service. Exceptional plating and presentation of food. All of our food was delicious. Chicken Suprėme was a true delicacy. Excellent wine list. A wonderful dining environment to bring another couple with us for their first time. They enjoyed the entire evening so much and want to return in the near future. Beautiful restaurant!
Our meal was just OK. Had a new item on the menu - Cassoulet- which was served in an unusual way in a small casserole topped with dry crumbs. Overall the dish was too dry - we didn’t need the spoons provided. There was only a minimal amount of duck confit, and more sausage which was the wrong type - not a dry, smokey sausage which wound have had more taste. Service was not great. Our mains came immediately after our appetizer dishes were removed and before our wine was served. Very rushed feeling. Unpleasant.
The meal and service was amazing. My husband had the chicken and I had the cod. We are still raving about this meal - it was superb. Thanks to everyone from our server to the chef (s)!!
Always one of my favorite places for a special night out.
Good food and fun variety.
Great place for a group. Good atmosphere for catching up.
An absolutely delicious lunch. We chose to try several small plates and had a wonderful visit. Our server Alan was outstanding. He had just the right amount of interaction and helpful advice and also didn't rush us at all, even though we found out he was off an hour before we finished (Sorry Alan!). I highly recommend the Shrimp Pernod, and the daily oysters special was incredible. We'll be back.
Overall the service was excellent, I love the restaurant and it's setting / decor etc . The meal was average and high priced for unexceptional fare.
Food was really good. Ordered the tuna tartare, duck poutine, soup of the day and omelet of the day. Service was great too. We were travelling with a stroller and they were very accommodating. Thank you!
Been there so many times. Usually great. Tonight it was awful
Food fantastic, service brilliant, lots of choice in food and drink. Perfect meal
All of our food was delicious. I had the Prix Fix which was a great "deal". I had the Mushroom Risotto, my daughter the Steak Tartar (my daughter, who tries steak tartar whenever she can, said it was one of the best she's had!) and hubby had the steak with frites, with peppercorn gravy, delicious, with 3 different desserts to share. The creme brulee was very good, and the flourless chocolate cake was excellent. Ambiance was lovely, staff was very nice and helpful. Beautiful restaurant!
Perfect spot for mid-afternoon cocktails and nosh. Merci....
Chien Noir is my favourite place to go or take new people to. We brought friends from St. Catherine's and they like it very much and loved the décor. We'll be back!
Dinner was quite good. We both had the dry aged tenderloin. Our waitress was very pleasant and engaging.
What a disapointment. Although I booked well ahead, I was given the worst table (by the way the
only one left). The noise was out of this world. Why don't restaurants pay attention to acoustic basics?
I left with a bitter taste in my mouth and we were hoping to celebrate my wife's birthday.
Great little restaurant! Food is amazing - duck poutine is a must!!! Staff very friendly
Food exceeded expectations - steak was perfect & large portion - staff recommended a great wine - lovely birthday dinner - servers were slammed but very friendly - highly recommend
Food and environment was AMAZING!
Chaceurie board great - service on the slower side.
Bacon maple cheesecake is a HARD PASS 👎🏼
Service was excellent! Food was good. Had the halibut, wife had the chicken supreme.
Atmosphere was great too!
We had a reservation but still waited an hour 20 mins for 3 burgers, as they prioritized a large party that came in at about the same time. Terrible service although the manager did take the bar tab off the bill which I appreciated. Would not return.
We had been too LeChien Noir years ago and really enjoy the food and the service. Our waitress was very polite, but not very knowledgeable. Our food was ok, just ok. The pate was hard and dry, my mussels were bland. Others at our table also were underwhelmed.
The brunch menu available online is not the same as the menu in restaurant, so some of the items were not available. Of the food that was ordered, everything was very good! The standout item was the soup du jour which was a roasted carrot curry soup; it was so delicious that we ordered a second one. The service was friendly and attentive. The back patio is also a great place to eat if you want to be outside but also out of the sun! We were the only ones seated outside for most of our meal so it was quite quiet.
The service was very good, however, the food was lucking the expectations despite the price tag attached.
Cote de boeuf très décevante
My steak was mostly fat and gristle. Service was just okay.
