    There was only one server covering all front-of-house responsibilities, but she was congenial. We waited forever in the bartender-less bar for our table in the only 1/3 full restaurant. The women's bathroom was dirty (grime on the changing table was especially gross). The food was edible but plain with zero flair (worse than an at-home meal), and the seafood seemed like it was frozen grocery-store fare, definitely not fresh. The whole experience was bizarre and overpriced. The server was super nice, though, which is the only reason this is not a one-star review. Definitely do not recommend.

    The service was great and would definitely go back. Prices a little high but it was a celebration so it was fine.

    The Cat & Owl is an excellent restaurant. We had a great experience. The food was delicious, the server was friendly, prompt and made us feel special. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Service was outstanding, but the music was too loud, and my Dad’s steak was much tougher than a fillet should be.

    Thanks for adding the crab legs. Great Mother’s Day meal with the family. All the food was great.

    Some of the best food I've ever had. Incredibly courteous and polite staff. Great ambiance, and a fantastic hidden gem.

    This was my first time at Cat & Owl in over 25 years. My memory of it was better than this outing was. Everything was acceptable except the steak I got. I ordered a 12 oz ribeye which is usually a good choice. This time though, it was full of grissel and not edible. I ate all I could of the steak, the baked potato was tolerable but not very hot. All in all, I did not get the value I paid for this steak. My wife really liked the crab cake she got. Service was slow as there was only one waitress on duty and in today's world, that was to be expected. I used to live in Covington, Va. which is why I even knew about the Cat and Owl. I won't be going back again since I can buy and prepare a good rib eye in my home for way less than this meal cost me. Sorry for this comment but maybe the owners will take it to heart.

    Rib-eye was cooked exactly to my specifications. Really juicy and flavorful.

    My best friend and I had a delicious meal last night. We started with fried oysters for our appetizer. They were cooked to perfection. We both had a 5oz filet and charbroiled scallops. Everything was cooked perfectly. The steaks melted in our mouths and the scallops had the char on them like we like. The service was wonderful and the dirty martinis were too.

    My filet mignon was a little tough. Other than that, everything else was perfect.
