Diner Reviews
  • "Dining in dark experience was great. Romantic atmosphere. All dishes were superb. A MUST HAVE at this place is the Gorgonzola pear ravioli creamy pesto and their Araceli is phenomenal."

  • "Went for a romantic, blindfolded dinner. Had a great time! Super fun and exciting to try this without seeing them first. I defibitely recommend the experience."

  • "Si quieres ir a un lugar encantador en la Pequeña Habana, no dejes de probar Catharsis, voy al menos una vez al mes, los viernes y sábados el ritmo, la melodía y el talento de Alma, harán la combinaciòn perfecta para la noche especial que te habías propuesto tener. La comida es excelente, la atenciòn es profesional y detallada. En fin, es una joya en nuestra ciudad."

  • "Service was the best party. Expected better ambiance instead crowd was bit oldish. Music good but just too loud. Food was not bad."

  • "The empanadas, chorizo, and morcilla were excellent; on a previous visit, the tostones were also excellent. The lobster ravioli and the porcini ravioli were also both exceptional. We were there on a Saturday night, and the music -- a 3-piece group with a lead guitarrist, a flutist and drummer -- were also excellent and good for dancing, although the decibel level may have been a bit too high (they seemed to lower it somewhat when we suggested this). Prices were very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the food and the entertainment."

  • "We have been several times to this restaurant. 3 previous times they had a 3 piece all female band. They were great- latin music with a funkyness to it, the lead singer wonderful at engaging her audience. This time they had her and a male on vocals/bongos. They played latin and american music. Good but she didn't say much, not as engaging without her gals. Also, they played one set (we arrived at 8:30, left at 11) then music went to recorded. Previously (x 3 visits), we could talk and hear music, this time no way- yelling! Food some items better than others-very good- braised pork, ravoli, filet. ok- polenta (they changed this- used to be awesome. Desserts- sound and look better than they taste- ok to good. nothing special."

  • "The restaurant is pretty, the staff friendly and the music terrific. But there is less than meets the eye. The food was at best fair. The specialty of the house, short rib and polenta,was unacceptable. The short rib tasted as if it had been cooked in brine and the polenta was a sludge. The salmon was overcooked. The expresso machine was not working! This is not a place that I would recommend to friends or to which I would return."

  • "I have visited Cuba and adore its food and music. Here, at Catharsis, one can enjoy both. The food was exceptional, and the live Cuban music was exciting. The owner personally attended to our service and helped make the night exceptional. Do not come on a Saturday night if you aren't interested in great food and a true Cuban party experience. Don't miss this gem."

  • "Live band performance on the stage was loud and festive, people were dancing around the tables between courses, made for a fun date. Excellent sweetbreads, croquettes, risotto, and salmon."

  • "Just a plain awful experience. Was virtually ignored the whole time, did not seem to fit in with the crowd, including the wait staff. Service was atrocious. Almost had a bottle of liquor from the bar fall on. Glasses crashed everywhere. Then the band was obnoxiously testing it's equipment for 45 minutes. Then the feedback from the speakers almost blew out my eardrums. By that point, I just wanted the check. A shame as the food was not bad. Valet was $10 too whichever in that area is plain ridiculous."
