Great place. Great service from Lateisha. Love the choice of small or large plates. My husband and I shared 3 small plates and got to enjoy more choices. All were great. Except the carrot cake......meh.

This was 2nd time there, food was definitely not as good as the 1st time. The duck was overcooked and the plantain fritters did not go well with the dish. The fruit with the oysters was not a good pairing.
Service was not the greatest, waitress forgot drinks 2 times.
Liked the winter menu much better.

My wife and I were especially fond of the ambiance and the superior service provided. We will not hesitate to visit again. Our server helped greatly in making our experience thoroughly positive. This luncheon was a most pleasant and happy experience.

This is our "go-to" place when we want something special. We enjoyed our last visit on a very crowded Friday night. The ambiance was good - a few patrons dressed rather inappropriately but that seems to happen in many places these days. Two minor disappointments. The Heirloom Tomato Appetizer was more lovely fresh herbs (a huge pile) than tomato and not like one I have had there in previous years. My rack of lamb while tender and tasty was on the "thin" side and rather fatty. My Dessert was spectacular and enough for two people - The Stone Trifle - do try it but remember to ask for two spoons! As always, the Amuse Bouche (spelling?) was a delight - an especially tasty duck sausage, with herbs, was most enjoyable. My husband had the Soft Shell Crab - which I had planned to order and wish I had. He said it was great. We will certainly return - life isn't always perfect.

The $10 lunch special is a great introduction to Krazy Kats for a relaxed, unhurried experience in a lovely setting, but it is not a choice for the working person with a one-hour lunch break.

I gave 3 Stars for the service as the wrong food appeared combination wise on the wrong plate, and the server wanted to just scrape the salad over to the correct plate. There was also some food missing from the plate. It was not a very great situation and I felt bad for my guests!! Hope next time we will have the right combination on the correct plate!

Food as always was great. However Service was very slow this night. 2-people 6:30 reservation - left restaurant at 8:55. Waited nearly 1:15 between first and second course. Manager provided a 10% discount. Would have rather been told that there may be a problem up front than finding out during the meal.

This is our special anniversary spot! We go to Krazy Kat's every year to celebrate our anniversary (and on date nights when we can!). The food is ALWAYS the BEST we have ever tasted. The servers are always very friendly and respectful. The only criticism I have from our experience this most recent visit is that the place cleared out very quickly after we were sat (around 8:15pm). Because we noticed the servers cleaning up and preparing to close, we kind of felt rushed (although the server didn't say anything directly to us to make us feel that way... it was just the atmosphere). Because we have 2 little ones at home, we very much value the few date nights we have out. In the future, we may try to get an earlier reservation so we feel that we have more time to savor every bite of the most AMAZING food ever and enjoy each other's company.

Sunday Brunch...one poached egg was spot on the other over cooked . Skip the upgrade crab imperial, More like crab mush. Potatoes were good, omelette of the day was tasty. Good Bloody Mary and mimosa. Decor is dated and dirty. Huge cobwebs in the skylights.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We spoke with the chef and he said that the eggs could have been different sizes and one cooked faster then the other. Crab is a delicate meat and sometimes the mixing of it makes it look soft. The chef said if you ever have a problem with anything that comes out of the kitchen, please let your server know so it can be addressed. Hopefully you will come back and see us soon.

The server was very nice and apologized for the back up in the kitchen since we waited for more than 30 minutes for our food. We ordered the lobster French onion soup and if blindfolded would not be able to tell you what we were eating and they substituted the cheese on top without asking us. The crab was also very bland. We will not be back.

We are somewhat frequent diners here and hosted our rehearsal dinner here in the past, so we feel a bit loyal to the place. I think the dining room is starting to need a refresh. The cats are of course unique but when you look a bit closer things are getting a bit run down. Food was OK and not at the level it has been in the past which is why I rated "good". Temps were not exact and plating was off the mark a bit given our previous experience here. It's still a good dining experience but now facing stiff competition from spots in downtown Wilmington.

The atmosphere was nice, but it had a bit of a smell as you walked in the door. The main problem was the food, I rarely go to a restaurant and can’t or won’t eat the food but I was not able to finish my meal. The asparagus soup Had an odd flavor, and the shrimp tacos we’re not very good either.

Lunch was wonderful. The soup and half sandwich is a great deal. I had the shrimp tacos and asparagus with spring onion soup. There were two tacos with a fruit salsa. The soup was delicious. Not sure what I expectedly but it far exceeded my expectations. My husband had the chef's special burger and really enjoyed it. We were seated in the sun room, all the tables were full but it was easy to carry on a quiet conversation. We will certainly return soon.

We found the service to be lacking. It took awhile for them to acknowledge our presence. When refilling water glasses they'd do one but not others that were obviously empty. Silverware disappeared with various courses and was never replaced until prompted. A steak knife appeared for the surf portion of a surf and turf dish only after the meal had progressed. The food was adequate but it didn't do enough to overcome the poor service.
