No Reservations is a 2007 romantic comedy-drama film directed by Scott Hicks and starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart, and Abigail Breslin. Kate Armstrong (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is a highly skilled chef working at a prestigious restaurant in Manhattan who is known for her perfectionism in the kitchen. However, her personal life is far from perfect - she is emotionally closed off, has no romantic prospects, and is estranged from her younger sister. Her world is turned upside down when her sister dies in a car accident, leaving behind her 9-year-old daughter, Zoe (Abigail Breslin), whom Kate is entrusted to care for.

At work, Kate is thrown a curveball when the restaurant's owner hires a new sous chef, Nick Palmer (Aaron Eckhart), to help in the kitchen. Nick is a laid-back, charismatic chef with a more relaxed approach to cooking than Kate, which initially clashes with her perfectionism. Despite their differences in style, the two come to respect each other professionally and soon develop a friendly relationship outside of work.

As Kate struggles to balance her new responsibilities as a guardian and her demanding job, Nick becomes a key figure in Zoe's life, helping her through her grief and introducing her to the world of cooking.

Throughout the film, Kate is forced to confront her emotional barriers and learns to open up to those around her, including Nick and Zoe. As her relationship with Nick begins to blossom into something more than friendship, Kate must re-evaluate her priorities and decide what she truly wants in life.

No Reservations is a heartwarming and charming film that explores love, loss, and the importance of family. The chemistry between the three leads is palpable, and their performances are engaging and endearing. The film is also a feast for the senses, with beautiful shots of mouth-watering dishes and glimpses into the frenetic world of a high-end restaurant kitchen.

No Reservations is a 2007 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 44 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.3 and a MetaScore of 50.
