    Our 2nd time here. The first experience was so good, we made a reservation for the following week. What made it so good my partner asked. (I am the pickier of the two). Here goes. 1. Ambience - the place is over 200 years old and there’s a lot of history. Worth checking out. 2. The food - Chef Corey - he knows what’s up and he has just the right touch. From the duck. So succulent and yet the skin so crispy. How’d you do that?! The portion… extra generous! 3. The service - Kimberly - remember her name. She is on point, hospitable, and fun to engage with. If you are a fan of a good old fashioned - ask her for the P&P crafted fashioned - it’s a winner. Overall - this is one of my go to places - let’s not forget the influential folks who have made a stop here (ok that shouldn’t deter you 😂)

    The food was excellent. Interesting menu, beautifully prepared. The waiter was very nice, but inexperienced. We had to ask for water refills and the bread for which plates were already on the table. Our first course was incorrect, but quickly changed. Conversation at the next table was a bit intrusive. Maybe some soft music might have helped, and the air conditioning blower was pretty cold right at my feet. A pillow rectified that. The website for Montchanin Village mentioned an opportunity to stroll around gardens, but no one in the restaurant had any idea where they were, which was a little disappointing because that was one of the reasons I chose this restaurant over many equally good local places.

    Ordered one of the specials which included a small filet, asked for med well, came out rare. Brocollini was burnt. Second entree was another special and the salmon was burnt. Told wait staff and we were offered free dessert, but sadly our experience was marred by poorly prepared food. This place is above average in price and was disappointed.

    Multiple items were not available. The quality and presentation of the food did not correlate with the cost. We have been to Krazy Kat's in the past and there is a clear decline in the food and skill of the server. The server was pleasant enough, but did not provide the best service experience we've had in the past at Krazy Kat's or other establishments. I suspect the fault is not the servers but leadership in ensuring the quality is present. The same can be said for the food that was ordered. The quality in the preparation and presentation was lacking. Having experienced Krazy Kat's service and food more than once over time, this visit showed a decline. It was frankly a disappointment.

    Krazy Kat's at The Inn at Montchanin VillageResponded on June 16, 2022We apologize that you dining experience was not up to your expectation or ours. Like majority of the restaurant industry, we are in a transition period. That is not an excuse, just a statement. We hope you will give us another opportunity and return for a meal.

    This is a charming restaurant in the lower level of a historic building. Along with our well made martini cocktails we were served fresh baked rolls with house made butter and a lovely amuse bouche. We ordered PEI oysters and seared fois gras appetizers, both of which were excellent. The fois gras being perfectly seared and accompanied by house made berry jam, warm Brie and crushed almonds, was a divinely inspired mix of savory, sweet and crunchy. My husband’s grilled strip steak Oscar was also perfectly cooked to medium rare but the crab in the sauce was barely detectable. My miso glazed salmon over red quinoa and butternut squash with a grilled baby bok choy was disappointingly dry and the salmon was overcooked; this dish was in need of a sauce. I would go back for a second try.

    This is a quiet restaurant, just next to the Inn at Montchanin. The service and food are excellent. Granted it is called Krazy Kat's, but all of the cat portraits were a little too much for me. But otherwise, a wonderful place for a quiet dinner. We did not feel rushed and were able to savor each course. I highly recommend it.

    my partner and I came here for our 5 year anniversary for a saturday brunch. our server was really sweet and we had a great experience dining here. it seemed like he may have been the only server on but he was so curtious and very clearly was passionate about his job. my food was 10/10. I had the pork belly and egg sandwich and hands down it was the best breakfast sandwich ever. my partner tried a crab melt (he rated 7/10) that we were informed was a menu item they were trying out - my partner didn’t like that the crab meat was cold but I think it’s because they toast the bread and then add the crab meat last. I had half of the crab melt and I would have personally rated it an 8/10. overall we had a great meal and it was a charming and quaint little spot that we would happily recommend to anyone! to any future diners - please be patient if you dine with a smaller staff - the food is beyond worth the wait and you can feel the passion that the workers really want to provide an excellent service. I’m sure they would love to be fully staffed but in a post-covid world, that’s hard to do!

    We came with high expectations and we were disappointed by the service and not impressed with the food. We had an early reservation on a weekday, the restaurant was more than half empty but we were seated in an overflow area separated from the beautiful main dining room. It looked more like a closet than a room. There was no reason for it and so my low score. The bread was disappointing for a French restaurant. The food was good but nothing exceptional. We would not go back.

    Krazy Kat's at The Inn at Montchanin VillageResponded on May 24, 2022I am sorry your visit did not meet your expectations or ours. We do not consider the Annex an overflow seating. In fact, many guests prefer to sit in that area. You could have requested to sit in the main dining room, if there was available seating. We seat guests in both areas to make flow better for service. We are not a French cuisine restaurant any longer. We are more of a farm-to-table with a flare of a little bit of everything. We hope you will give us another opportunity.

    RUINED our birthday celebration due to bad service and undercooked seafood. And other problems, from not bringing the right wine that we ordered, to a pen that didn't work to try to pay for your meal. We had to eat our food separately, because it was delivered inedible at the same time. No true apology or compensation. Only table in the house and no music? ambiance? We will NEVER go back. They never even tried to make it up to us, and we were the ONLY, ONLY table there, on a Friday, from 5pm until at least 7pm. And I guess that explains why. Birthday ruined.

    Krazy Kat's at The Inn at Montchanin VillageResponded on May 16, 2022I apologize that your birthday was not to your expectations or ours. There is not an excuse for the lobster being undercooked. That was addressed with the chef and cook. The meal that was ordered to replace the lobster was a steak and it did take time to cook. You were apologized to for the meal not being satisfactory by a manager and you were comped 20% off of the replacement entree. In fact, you had stated that your steak was cooked perfectly. Again, we apologize!

    Unfortunately it was a very poor experience. We went for my mother's 80th birthday. By the time we expected our dinner to be served, they told us they were out of scallops. Then 15 minutes later, we were told the duck was still frozen. We waited about 40 minutes or so for dinner (after getting appetizers) and there was only 4 tables of people. Cream of Crab soup was good, but barely lukewarm. The food that did come out was very good and steak/seafood cooked perfectly, though the purees that they did come on were cold. I would expect better execution for this type of high end establishment. I would have expected the server to have know what was unavailable. I asked to speak with a manager and was told there wasn't one. Spent about $300 and was underwhelmed. Doubt I will go back.

    Our previous experiences have been excellent and this visit rated just as highly. We received attentive service, and the food (amuse bouche of wild boar sausage and cheese on crostini, and scallops and duck entrees) was delicious. We like the option of small plates, and found the amounts were just right. We definitely will continue to return when in town.
