We went for my daughter's birthday and the staff at Catherine Lombardi's went above and beyond to make her dinner memorable!
Friendly and eager to please wait staff gave us good suggestions (glad we didn't pass up the very garlic bread or the molten chocolate cake). The atmosphere is charmingly rustic with a large fireplace complete with lovely fire. The signature lasagna is the best, and we were glad we had taken home what we were not able to finish at the table. Only (very small) complaint is that coffee wasn't very hot. I know we could have asked for a fresh cup and it would not have been a problem, but we were short on time, so we let it be. We would definitely eat here again (wish we could do it tomorrow!)
Right at the start of the NB theater district and across from a hotel, this place overlooks George Street and features excellent food (the lasagna is hearty and tasty), extensive wine list, great servers and can be a good value (unless you insist on $$ wine LOL). Definitely a favorite.
Our dinner at Catherine Lombardi was exceptional! I was delighted that they had a coat check (optional), and the ambiance was warm and cozy while setting an upscale mood. The service was impeccable, the food was phenomenal, and our experience was all that we hoped it would be! We will definitely be coming back to dine here again.
We had already started our appetizers when our neighbors walked in. They seated her at her table and then her husband came in. We invited them to join us and the staff was very accommodating, moving them to our table and merging our orders. The food was delicious as usual and we enjoyed the evening.
Over the past several years I have dined at Catherine Lombardi's about 5 times. The food is always consistently excellent and the wine list is expensive but nice. Our waiter was quite helpful in selecting our dinner and the back waiter overheard me say I wished I could take the bread home and he wrapped it up for me, unasked. The atmosphere in the restaurant is so peaceful and comfortable it makes a great date night or any night you need a little something special. I will be back again soon.
Came here for an anniversary dinner, and we had an absolutely fabulous meal. Excellent service. Remarkable wine list. Fiancee said that the meatballs were the best he has ever had. Osso buco was to die for. All around an incredible meal (and a new favorite spot for special occasions).
As always, Catherine Lombadi's food, spirits and the service were outstanding!
The food was perfect for everyone at the table. Marks service was absolutely perfect and really made it the perfect experience for my friends and family.
Food at Catherine Lombardi's is always great but was very disappointed that they ran out of both specials one of our guests wanted. Our waiter was nice but it was hard to get his attention when we wanted to pay the check and he did not check on us often as I know wait staff in the past have done.
This restaurant was an outstanding find. The appetizers, the wine and the entrees were phenomenal. The staff were very friendly and very good with descriptions of the menu. The touch of the fire places made the entire experience very soothing and Romantic for my girlfriend and I to start our first Valentines Day date. Your restaurant and staff set the tone of the night, I will highly recommend you restaurant and look forward to returning.
Service was excellent! food was excellent cozy atmosphere. Had dinner before a show.
Mediocre food at best and a little pricey for the quality.
Great pre theater dinner! Warm service and fantastic food.
Another great time and great meal!
