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.

I had a great 25th birthday dinner here. Our waiter was phenomenal and even surprised me with a special dessert. I wasn’t a fan of another TAO restaurant in NYC, but Cathédrale lived up to the hype. Both food and ambiance was 100%. We will definitely be returning.

I would like to thank Maria and the other waitresses.
I had a terrible first date with a very aggressive guy and they all tried to help me out to get out of this embarrassing situation.
If it weren’t them I would have not realized that fast how much I was in danger.
Thank you again !
I 100% recommend and I’ll come back with my friends this time.

Like so many places, the potential of being excellent was compromised by a lack of staff. Our server was fantastic but obviously overwhelmed trying to attend to all the tables by himself.

Horrible experience, had brunch and the waiters literally ignored and watched as I poured my champagne and water for me and my guest. Extremely inattentive and rude at times. Might have been the worst dining experience I’ve had in years.

I wouldn’t come back here. This place is very “sceny.” The drinks were bad, the food was cold. They made us order appetizers at the same time as our entrees and then brought them out at the same time anyway. It’s loud, obnoxious, cramped and uncomfortable. Horrible value. Go somewhere Michelin starred at this price.

I had a terrible experience because we got seated after an hour of waiting and another hour and a half to start eating. The food was incredible but since they took so long, I canceled a party at my house to celebrate my birthday.

The service was terrible.

The manager tried to do something by giving us free drinks but that do not compensate the fact that I canceled my after-dinner birthday.

Food was excellent and served quickly from their concise menu. Drinks also did not disappoint. Dishes we're exciting and well-executed enough to balance the steep price on eggs. Though, adding a bathroom sign won't bring down the ambiance rating.

Beautiful restaurant and delicious food. We were on time for our reservation and were told to wait at the bar. They seemed to completely forget about us: We had to approach the hostess several times and finally got seated 40 minutes later to a table that had been sitting empty right near us. Honestly wonder if they ever would have come found us at the huge bar.

Tables were a little too close it was difficult to have conversations with next next table over screaming talking and laughing. Aside from that it was an amazing night, venue was beautiful & food was amazing.

This is truly an East Village/Union Square jewel. What a find! Best steak and Burrata that I have had in a long while and the service couldn’t have been any better. A little on the pricy side, but worth every cent. I’m definitely coming back!!

Disappointed with the table—we were seated on the street. I thought we would be seated in the beautiful off-street patio. The worst part was the super loud club music coming from a trash bar on the corner. The food and service were fine, but way overpriced. Entrees were the best part of the meal (we had the salmon and the filet). Wouldn't go again.

If you ever watched the movie Last Holiday, you’d understand how I feel. Queen Lafitah loved the restaurant so much she did order everything on the menu. It’s definitely how I feel, I want to order everything on the menu because everything is over the top delicious!

It was bad, like really, really bad. "Garden" seating is on the street - you're sitting on dollar store plastic chairs and drunk people are walking past to line up at the club next door. A total waste of money. The only plus was they felt bad it was my birthday so they treated me to a free drink - which tasted terrible :(
