Stellar All Around. Every dish we had was highly imaginative and creative, but not wacked out -- all the ingredients and flavors worked together in a masterly way. We also liked our very helpful and friendly server who steered us to just the right entrees and desert choices, all of which we went crazy over. The atmosphere is very cool warehouse-sheek, with beautiful wood on the walls and a cool linear see-through gas fireplace in the front to sit and have drinks in front of. Honestly, the food quality is outstanding and better than other high end places we've been in Boston that charge much more. We highly recommend Catalyst.
The food is high-quality, but the plates were a little small for a full meal.
Perfect in all ways
Amazing food, perfect for a date night
We like the food, the ambience, the service, and the short drive to Catalyst for us. It's a big place with a couple of different seating/dining areas, and an attractive bar scene. The frequent change in cuisine also keeps us coming back.
Catalyst is DEPENDABLY excellent!
Amazing cauliflower soup with fried capers. I couldn't get enough. Also really enjoyed the kale caesar salad.
Catalyst was a good choice for a work outing in a group of 5. The service was very good, especially considering we had some special requests at our table.
Ambiance was probably the best in the area. Perfect for something nice but not pretentious.
Plenty of drink options!
The servings were a healthy size, and the quality seemed mixed depending on the dish. Salmon was great, celery root pasta was great, burgers were pretty good, and there was a meat pasta that was just ok.
We enjoyed the food, we enjoyed not having to shout while we ate, we liked the atmosphere at Catalyst. Service was good. It was a very relaxed brunch.
My date really enjoyed the interior design. She loved the atmosphere and food. Definitely take her again.
My self and a group of friends went here for my birthday and everyone had a great time! There was plenty of space at the table for the group, there were nine of us. Brian was an amazing server! He was funny, personable and attentive. The food was delicious and would highly recommend it to anyway who’s looking for a nice evening out.
Service was super slow and we were among the only ones in the restaurant
The fish dishes were disappointing. Best food on menu is the burger. Soups are good too.
Three of us ate lunch at catalyst recently. Two of us got the salmon-cooked perfectly with
delicious sides. I think the fish itself would have benefited from a good searing w/some spices.
Our niece ordered the steak and it was delicious and generously portioned.
The wait person was very accommodating, funny, friendly and we enjoyed the repartee. We would definitely return again.
Our second time dining there and they were very accommodating especially after an order mix up that was quickly resolved. Food and overall ambiance was great. Highly recommended.
