Cathédrale is a French-Mediterranean restaurant by Tao Group Hospitality Chef/Partner Ralph Scamardella, in collaboration with Executive Chef Jason Hall (formerly of acclaimed restaurants like Gotham Bar & Grill, Anthos and Craft). The menu brings elemental, ingredient-driven cooking to the forefront, evoking the grandeur of the past while remaining contemporary in its execution. Dishes put pleasure over spectacle, taking inspiration from Southern France with traces of Italy, Spain and Greece as seen in Ribeye Steak au Poivre, Chickpea Socca Pancake and Bouillabaisse ‘Tetou’ for the table, as well as Baked Red Snapper Provençal and Rotisserie Chicken Chasseur.

Service was excellent. Food was amazing. Black truffle pasta and Halibut are top two fav dishes, MUST HAVES. Lemon sorbet (even if you don’t like lemon flavors) so refreshing and tasty!!

The Prosecco cocktails were flat — the $50 fettuccine with black truffle was nothing like it is advertised on the restaurant’s Instagram posts, there was almost no black truffle on them and the plate was cold when brought to the table. For the price you pay you expect to have a much better experience. I would not go back there.

Service was ok, but food was great so I can’t complain. Took a while for someone to take our order and they asked us four times if we wanted still or sparkling water. But after that everything was great, every dish was just amazing.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, having not heard of it before and discovering it through our daughter. The space is stunning, just spectacular. The food was uniformly excellent. Try the potato chip omelette, the hen of woods brochette and the grilled langoustines, as well as the Mellot Sancerre.

Fun, cavernous, well appointed vibe in this subterranean, VERY chic space. Staff is quite pleasant. Food is good (tomato Provençal, egg scramble with cheese and pepper and potato chip/caviar omelet were all good. Cocktails are solid) The space, while underground, is truly a sight to behold, with a beautiful expansive bar and soaring, spectacular ceilings. The WOW ambiance is reason enough to enjoy a visit to Cathedrale!

Place is beautiful, drinks are spot on! Food is unfortunately just ok! Food presentation is very nice, service is wonderful but flavor is medium and over salted! We had dinner for 9 people, 3 had upset stomach…. I paid for 3 people $625 including tip… the only 4 dishes that were good where app- beef and tuna… main- filet mignon and chicken. The rest had medium flavor at best…that’s why its 2 stars! The Highlights were drinking, bread served in the beginning of the meal, 4 dishes , drinks and desert….. rest of the menu needs big improvement!

The service was excellent and both of our dishes were delicious. We had specials, so not sure if you'll see then when you're there, but the squid ink pasta and black sea bass were awesome!

My overall experience was great, from our hostess taking photos of us to the seating options for my Birthday, I felt welcomed. We did a whole 4 course meal and the food was top notch. I loved everything. Ambiance was classy, loved the high ceilings and designs.

At the bar, our bartender made us a drink not on the menu, gin based nice and strong. It was amazing. The rest of the night we kept sending back for the same drink. He was so sweet!

My only hiccup was our server, she was less than attentive. She make us do the whole order upfront and informed us she would pace it out. However, we clumsily get through course one before they tried piling course two on the tiny table. I had to asked them to pace them out. And then there was the lack of attention, she didn’t come back once to ask how was everything or to see if we were waiting 10 mins between courses. Which we did. I thought that was annoying.

Fun for a girls’ night out! Cocktails were great. To start we split Murray’s and potato chip omelette both were amazing. For mains we shared the filet, black truffle fettuccine and halibut. The filet was our favorite with a savory mushroom sauce we couldn’t get enough of followed by the black truffle fettuccine which was a close second. For dessert we split the chocolate profiteroles and apple beignets. Overall a great experience. Our server Miguel was very knowledgeable of the menu and gave great guidance on selecting everything. Looking forward to coming back for either a date night or with a big group again!

My third time here in a month. The scallops and squash are outstanding, as is the calamari!

On the negative side, the rock music is too loud and not in line with atmosphere, and in my view the music definitely diminishes the vibe.

Good food but vastly overpriced for what you get. $40 for 4 prawn 4mini clams and half a king crab leg? $11 for two SMALL pieces of slab bacon? Guess they are trying to make up for lost revenue during COVID.

First day of the year! We wanted to start off with hope, positivity and a good meal, and we weren’t disappointed at all :)
Loved the ambience, the live music and appreciated each bite of our lovely Shakshuka and Pain Perdu.

Definitely recommend for a special meal with special people!

The restaurant is gorgeous. If live music is playing, it’s absolute magic. This is a fancy occasions restaurant. There could be more options in the category of vegan and gluten-free, but there is something on the menu for everyone.
