Black Cat Bistro Review

Jazz wafts through the several small rooms of this intimate East Village bistro where stylish cushions line the banquettes. Start with an order of the fried olives stuffed with Gorgonzola, accompanied by a glass of local or imported wine. Mains on offer might include chipotle linguini (vegetarian or with shrimp) or breast of pheasant stuffed with caramelized apples.

    What a Find!

    Perfect little bistro in charming village. Excellent service -- outstanding wine list. The chocolate souffle (ordered when you place your dinner order) was terrific, as were all of the entrees. Make your reservation early (it's a small place and appears to be full all the time). Loved it when the chef leaned out of the kitchen to thank us and say good night!

    Very Good Food In A Nice Setting

    We have dined at the Black Cat Bistro once for dinner while in Cambria. It is a rather small dining room, very nicely appointed with great food and service. I had a Sea Scallop pasta entree that was very good, a fresh green salad and we shared a chocolate Lava cake for dessert that was excellent.
    I would highly recommend Black Cat while in the Cambria area for dinner.
