Mal el mesero, mejor nos atendió otra persona.
Evidente falta de comunicación con el área de cocina.
La alfombra huele muy mal, tuvimos q cambiar de mesa cerca del área de los baños.

Capitán de meseros excelente!

The best cabrito in Monterrey!
Love love love this place, everything we ordered was delicious and the service was great. We were celebrating a birthday and had an amazing time.
I'm planning on going back soon, they have an extensive menu and want to try everything on it for sure.

La atención muy buena, el sabor de la comida estuvo bien sin embargo creo que pudiera mejorar. lo malo fue que iba con mi esposa a celebrar aniversario d bodas y: 1) nos sentaron en una mesa cerca de la entrada y estaban reunidos todos los meseros y había mucho movimiento; 2) enseguida de nuestra mesa sentaron a una familia con niños lo cual incomodaba por el ruido que generaban. No creo regresar al menos que sea necesario.

Excelente comida, las entradas de una clsica cocina mexicana con sus respectivos pltillos prehispanicos, muy originales y sabrosos, los platillos fuertes tienen una mezcla de sabores para todos los gustos, y el
Ambiente esta muy agradable.

ambiente tranquilo para poder platicar aunque la musica de fondo esperaria algo mexicano instrumental atencion esmerada sin presion pero al pendiente raciones suficientes bien presentadas falta variedad de vinos que vienen en el menu, bien por la preparacion de las salzas , pudiera mejorarse la calidad del cafe en cuanto al sabor algo recalentado , por lo demas exelente y volveria a estar con ustedes tan pronto pueda .

Sin duda es una de las grandes opciones en Monterrey. Todo el mundo cree que la comida que hay ahí es cabrito o carne y La Catarina se esfuerza por tener una cocina con ingredientes tradicionales y prehispánicos, pero con un toque moderno. La presentación de los platos es excelente y la gran mayoría de platos de buen sabor. Las salsas preparadas en molcajete, en la mesa, es un gran toque y usualmente son de gran sabor.

Siempre que voy a Monterrey, guardo parte de mi apetito para ir a saciarlo a La Catarina, que sin pretensiones, es una joya gastronómica que no queda mal.
