No Reservations (2007)



Critic Consensus: This romantic comedy may look good on paper, but it's too predictable and melancholy for the genre.

Movie Info

Master chef Kate Armstrong lives her life like she runs her kitchen at a trendy Manhattan eatery--with a no-nonsense intensity that both captivates and intimidates everyone around her. Kate's perfectionist nature is put to the test when she "inherits" her nine-year-old niece Zoe, while contending with a brash new sous-chef who joins her staff.

Chalk it up as an alternative to watching a kitchen full of singing rats.

East Bay Express

Not bad, not amazing. Just a classy romantic comedy that, like a good meal, is enjoyable enough to partake of, but the taste of which will fade soon thereafter.

Catherine Zeta-Jones controls the kitchen, but can't control my attention.

Like the well-known joke about Chinese fare %u2014 No Reservations satisfies while you're sitting down at the table, but an hour later you're hungry again.

Colorado Springs Gazette

There's nothing in this story that you haven't seen before, and you'll know everything that's going to happen long before it does, yet it's all done with such charm and style that you won't care.

...there's not much sparkle in the movie and even less spark to the love story.

Audience Reviews for No Reservations

Ordinary rom-com but Eckhart is appealing.

More romantic/drama than a comedy. It has more heartfelt, feel good moments than any really laugh out loud scenes. Still it was a nice story, with a good cast and well made. Just always a bit predictable.

Dean King

Super Reviewer

A nice romantic film that is great for families.
