From Our Customers
“My experience here was very pleasant, and the food was terrific. Our calamari appetizer was great as was our spinach dip…… Both very tasty. I ordered the special, Chilean sea bass and it was flaky, buttery and delicious. It was served atop arugula and apple salad which was a really nice compliment to the fish. My boyfriend ordered the braised short ribs which was also very good and the portion size was great as well. And I can’t forget to mention the lemon basil martini I had was absolutely divine! I also had a french pear mojito and that was also very tasty. They have a variety of interesting cocktails.
We were a party of 12 and the whole dining experience went very smoothly.” - Erin S., Moorpark CA
“I’ve been to Chat 19 a handful of times. I always leave with a full belly and a big grin on my face. It is my go-to place for a classy, fun meal.
The decor of the restaurant is casual but stylish. There are a lot of vibrant colors. I love the look of the wood bar with mosaic tile splashes. My favorite accents are the large black and white photos. They are from all different eras in time and work as great conversation pieces. On a few occasions, we’ve had the pleasure of live music for entertainment in the main dining room. I really love the location. In the warm weather months, the large front windows are opened and there is even the option of sidewalk dining. It’s a relaxed but chic atmosphere. I often bring friends and family here for brunch when they visit.
For brunch, there is a diverse menu. You can get a breakfast dish, salad with grilled shrimp or even a burger. The table is always presented with a basket of warm muffins to start. You have to dig to find the zucchini bread muffins. Those are the best! I always get a mimosa or two, and the Eggs Florentine, which is phenomenal. It is served with a fresh mixed green salad and the house roasted potatoes. Another favorite of mine is the homemade unsweetened iced tea, which is served in a big mason jar.
One of my favorite little spots!” - Morgan L., Harrison NY
“loved chat 19 for years. never have had a problem with service or food always happy when dining here. great appetizers at a sharable size. entrees are great love the sliced steak order it all the time. not so crazy about desert at this place though. cant comment on the drinks but they look good they have a nice bar. a bit of an older crowd then you would think. will return soon” - Jamie A., New Rochelle NY
“A great spot for a casual dinner. This is where I head when I am craving a great burger and fries. But what I love about it is they also have great salads (for my wife) and all kind of choices (ribs, sandwiches and pasta) for my kids.
Have a banana split for desert!” - Rob S., Larchmont NY
