    Whimsical decor welcomes you to a quiet and romantic setting. The menu offers a wide variety, small plates or regular. The Chef prepared creative and delicious selections. The crab chowder was rich and delightful. The Rib Eye Special was tender and flavorful. Seafood dishes were delectable. Excellent wine list and desserts were superb! Great place for a special occasion or intimate dinner!

    Krazy kats has always been my favorite lunch spot until this past Friday (August 1). All 3 of us agreed that the food at this restaurant has goner downhill. My crab cakes were dry. My friend's sandwich was on an untoasted English muffin. The third friend's fillet was raw and tasteless. On a bright note, though, the desserts were excellent.

    We had lunch there last week and dinner this week. It is a wonderful place to dine. The pace was perfect, not rushed and of course the food is excellent. It was a very relaxing evening with great food, drinks, and ambience. You couldn't ask for a nicer place to celebrate a birthday.

    I was very disappointed with the dinner entree. Being a native of the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I had high hopes for the crab cakes, but found them lacking. There was an after-taste, which I originally contributed to my adding too much salt. However, when I sampled the second crab cake, without the salt, the after-taste still existed. My sister, who had the same entree, voiced the same opinion. I have had excellent lunches at the restaurant, which is why I chose the restaurant and wanted to my visiting sister to have a pleasant dining experience. However, it didn't turn out that way. Very hesitant to return.

    The food changed in the menu and they tried to be super fancy but the sweet potatoe was not good the filet was good but I literally had the 3oz filet with the 2 pieces of squash. They charge allot but if it's not great you leave hungry. Price is fine about 50 a person no alcohol which is fine if good. They had flues and fruit flies. Lobster claw rubbery.

    After all the good reviews we were severely let down. First off the place is way to dark without reason -- if lights are that low then use decent candles. Service only fair since we had to ask what the two prices per item meant -- figured smaller or larger portion but waitress didn't know/guessed size differences. Crabcakes supposedly from MD crab were without flavor -- had to put herb butter from the pumpernickel roll (good) on the crab to give them any flavor -- if MD crab it must have been frozen and frozen a long time ago. Steak was decent -- nothing special. Brownie was super -- the chocolate and moistness was the best. Carrot cake was a contrived thing that after we said wan not good the waitress agreed it was not her favorite.

    special occasion and it was a very nice evening service was very good, staff were great nice wine selection and actually reasonably priced food was fresh but the preparation and flavor combinations a bit off I thought paella was tasty but very odd preparation, with broth in the bowl and lacking sausage, not bad but not as expected - more like boiled rice, broth and seafood and ham in a stew than classic paella venison was a very nice filet but sauces didn't really compliment and the chard concoction was not a plus overall, lovely time as always.

    I noticed waitres t the other table offering choices of toast and telling diners about the daily specials. Our waitress did not do that and was kind of un attentive. Our drinks were empty for a while and we had to ask the bus boy to ask our waitress for refills. Service was not great, but food was phenominal, so I would go again.

    Have eaten here many times in the past.Service was always excellent and the food good. This time,there was a new and less interesting menu, the food was done well but would not have been a first choice on the old menu. Service was sub par compared to our past visits. The person seating us didn't pull out the chair for my wife nor did he give us our napkins and handed out the menus as an afterthought . Our waitress made several mistakes, giving us unordered food and forgetting other items. Even the pre-dinner cocktail wasn't up to previous standards.It's always a pleasure to dine there, but this wasn't up to their standards. It was like we picked a night when all the help was new and not quite up to snuff

    This delightful restaurant never fails to please in many ways. The menu offers entrees in two sizes. You can combine two different items are have just one. The selection is very broad so there is something to suit most tastes. She service this time was a bit confused. The server made some errors, the person bringing the food had no idea where the food was to go. The steak was overcooked but management rectified that generously. We have eaten there many times and will continue to do so.

    The pork belly appetizer was delicious. The rabbit soup was extremely salty. The lamb porterhouse was very good. However, one of us had the rabbit soup first and then the lamb porterhouse, the lamb became tasteless because the taste buds were overwhelmed by the saltiness of the previous dish. The lime cheesecake was out of this world. The service was good but our water was not refilled until we were almost finished with the meal. Overall, it was a good dining experience.

    Exceptionally slow and inattentive service - simply not enough staffing for breakfast. Two guests never received toast or requested beverage - it was just too hard to catch the server's attention given the number of diners. Our need to get on with our day meant that we could not wait it out. Time to move on....

    Excellent and unusual food - the rabbit chowder and wild boar steak were interesting and good. The wine list is good and there are some reasonably priced as well as the top ones. Ambience is a little dark but that's always been like that; and of course it helps if you're a Cats fan. Thoroughly recommend for a special occasion - it's a little expensive but great quality.

    Haven't been to Krazy Kats for a few years and were pleasantly surprised by a more creative menu of interesting appetizers plus entrees with choice of small plate or full size. Appetizer plus small plate was an excellent way to sample more widely and be fully satisfied. Appetizers were the winners - pork belly and surf & turf - both delicious. Entrees - lamb loin was excellent; duck was tasty but very rich - could have used something crisp or crunchy as accompaniment. Did not have dessert. Service was excellent with server knowledgeable about dishes and preparations. Plenty of space between tables for privacy and a romantic dinner. Will return sooner.

    Our Waitress Andrea was extremely attentive. The petite Ribeye steak/fingerling potatoes/rich brown sauce, was delicious. My Lamb Porterhouse/bed of Brie risotto/tender carrots, was pink and tender. However, next to the bone was totally raw. Andrea asked if I wanted it cooked more thoroughly, but I declined. Our Creme Brûlée, with edible white chocolate "Happy Anniversry" signs, was huge. A complimentary Italian cordial similar to "Galliano" was gracious. When first seated, we told Andrea we had time constraints and to serve us quickly. She certainly made sure our request was honored and the food was promptly delivered! All in all, our experience was wonderful.
