Mediterranean
Cathédrale, located in Manhattan’s East Village, 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. Designed by Rockwell Group, guests descend into the striking setting complete with soaring triple-height ceilings and an ethereal 19-foot wire mesh sculpture by internationally-celebrated Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi. Focus and fun will be felt in equal measure—an open kitchen outfitted with copper accents is designed to draw guests in, while the dramatic environment and show-stopping main dining room supports the decadence and raw creativity of both the menu and the East Village’s rich history and character.

The hostess as we arrived was rude and not welcome us, and probably did not advise Opentable on our presence as we got an email stating we missed our reservation. Her name was Jeane

The ambiance was a good mix of relaxing with a modern atmosphere mixed in. The food was very good, as well as their specialty cocktails. Our waitress was on top of everything and helped make the night that much better. Cool style of flashback music.

We were first given a table table by the loud bar as if we had just walked in rather than having made a reservation a month ago!

We then were given a table in the restaurant proper which was better.

Horrible music though. Not conducive to dining.

Kalvin our server was great.

Will not be back.

Food was good, space is very well thought out, the service was not polished at the welcome and bar, service table was good, hostess was one of the least welcoming hostess I have experienced. No smile and not outwardly trying to help clientele entering the establishment.

Apparently I screwed up my reservation date, but the hostess was super accommodating and we got seated no problem. This was by daughter's 18th and I have to thank the waiters for taking great care of us including bringing out a few surprises when they figured out it was her birthday. The Sommelier made a great wine suggestion and the food was top notch. What more can I say. thanks for a great evening!

My wife and I had a great time celebrating her birthday. While we had to wait a little for a few things like bread, or our bottle, which we felt took too long, all of the food was great. We had the Kalahari, to the salmon and sea bass coupled with sweet potato, and the macaroni. Everything we had was superb and our wine, while late, was perfect. We were truly happy with our choice and would definitely go back.

Another new restaurant which had so much potential.
It was a bit hard to find.
It looks much more spacious and glamorous on the Instagram photos.
It's actually pretty small and the ceiling heights looked so high in pictures but you'll be disappointed.
Below average food. Bland. Uninspiring. Poor value for money.
Friendly service.
Underwhelmed by the room. I was expecting grand, but it's a basement. Not the "wow" factor visually of Tao group restaurants.
The dessert "Saint Honoré" was overcooked.
Again, the food was really average.

Very Good Experience, food is really worth for the money and service is so welcoming. All the waiters and staff is so generous and polite, we tried Appetizer and desert by our waiter suggestion, and i can tell he did really good job so honest opinions he gave. I recommend this place to give a try .

Okay I LOVE this place. This is my second time here. Admittedly I came the first time because a woman I follow and love on Instagram talked about it opening (Melissa Wood Tepperberg). But seriously this place is awesome. Vibe is great. Food is even better. The wait staff is very friendly and welcoming. My boyfriend and I came for our ani and they gave us bubbles (so sweet). I would come here again and again and really highly recommend.

Food is very good. Service is very good. Space and decor very good. The portion size is very generous, especially the desserts. I wish the portion size were about 30% smaller. We were stuffed. Very good value for such good quality of food and service.

Hated that I had to wait 1 hour for my reservation. My table was at 9:15 and I was seated around 10:15.
Everything else was great
