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. 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

Between the quality of the food and the spectacular atmosphere, this is one of the coolest places and best values in NYC. I knew coming in that they had one design awards but I was still blown away. Then we had the potato chip omelet and we were impressed on a whole new level. Wonderful night out, can't wait to get back.

We were celebrating a friends birthday and everyone had a pleasant experience. Claudette was a great and attentive server. The food was delicious and the appearance was on point, along with the ambiance. Great atmosphere and entrees for any occasion.

Beautiful location for a date night. Service was impeccable, food was just ok. Smaller than what you might think given the photos and the Tao group's other locations, but definitely worth coming for dinner and drinks for a date or with friends.

Second time. Absolutely amazing food. Great service, and the coolest place in the city atm. Only complaint would be the desserts were plain and uninspiring, completely different from the stellar main dishes. And did I say Wonderful service? Will come back.

Do not dine “outdoor”. That’s actually out by the streets, not patio garden like I thought. There’s no heat lamps and zero ambiance since you’re outside the whole building. They even tried to sit us right by the brick wall of the restaurant. My scallops were too salty as well

It was a nice meal. They sent out a little frozen dessert with a candle for my fiancé’s birthday. They’re doing their best in the pandemic. The bar has nowhere near the same ambiance as the main dining room. Server was not super attentive.

Went for the prix fixe 3 course meal for $39! The appetizers were small, the entree was filling, and the dessert was good; was stuffed by the end of the meal though! Overall happy with our experience. We did outdoor dining and we were well spaced from other diners.

Service could’ve been so much better, nice place but wouldn’t recommend.. I made a reservation for a bar seat and was seated in a quiet corner .. didn’t get the experience I was lookin for at all. Made a reservation for 5pm & was told they weren’t ready to open ...

The most amazing experience! We got the burrata and fettuccine and it was wonderful. We split everything. The waiters were so attentive and kind (we had Lionel and Jorge). At the end, they even gave us dessert and champagne on the house. The ambiance was delightful and the entire restaurant is an amazing sight! Decorated beautifully. If you’re coming here to eat or just for drinks, I highly recommend. I don’t usually eat at a place twice in New York, but I definitely will be back :)

The staff was extremely helpful in revising my reservation to the main dining area. I had a very important meeting and in the last minute they accommodated us and we had a great evening. Thank you to the team for assisting our party.

You can’t NOT get the octopus. It’s so worth it. Plus the interior is just so stunning, I would go just to stare at the ceiling if I could.

Service from the waiters were AMAZING! Food was great and ambience was delightful. The only con is the snotty, obnoxious, impatient Asian girl hostess that sounded and looked like she was miserable in all aspects of her life so she reflects it back into how she treats the guests. If it wasn’t for her nasty attitude, this place would have been perfect! Avoid her as much as possible and just head straight to the dining area :).

Beautiful ambience.
Service was impeccable.
Drinks were amazing and delicious.
Appetizers & desserts were solid.
The shock was the main course, a medium rare filet mignon was the most uninteresting cut of meat ever. The (extra cost) black truffle fettucine was so boring makes you question if the sliced truffle was real?

Overall solid B+.

Worst experience I have had on a restaurant, they made us wait one hour for a table that was already reserved for an specific time. The service was really bad, they wanted to seat us at the bar for dinner, they took a long time to take our orders and we had to request several times the sides of our dishes, prices are over rated for the taste of the food.

This place has tables in the hotel area, which is fine but we were looking into being seated in the actual Cathedral restaurant, not the restaurant spaces of the hotel. I asked the hostess for a change, said would check and never came back to our table. So in order for not ruining my night I decided to just leave it.

Cocktails are good overall, we tasted almost the whole cocktail menu. Desserts really need to be same level as the food. Food was too tasty and nicely executed, but dessert just did not cut it at all.

Service is a bit rushed, we had to do everything fast. You have to order your entrees at the begging with your appetizers, which also didn't feel as we could enjoy time as a group of four with each course since you are obligated to order everything together, doesn't give you time to "make room" for next course.

Waiter was nice, but to refill water takes too much time and we had to be trying to catch the attention of several bus boys, in which a few don't bother to pay attention.

Overall I will be back but be more attentive to be seated in the actual restaurant and try to enjoy the architecture which is why I decided to go to this place in the first place.

One of my favorite restaurants, this was my first indoor experience since the Pandemic. My group of four was seated in the bar area. The tables were safely set apart and we had a wonderful indoor experience. The food, as always, was wonderful and the staff was attentive but let us have our space.

Went here for my girlfriend’s birthday and it was a very good experience. Our waiter was fast, helpful, and nice. The place is very expensive, $22 for a burrata appetizer and $17 for a cocktail. I put in a request for a cake with candles and they brought one out for her and i am grateful for it.

Diners should not be seated in the Moxy Hotel Lobby to dine in when making reservations. If my friend did not inquire whether the main dining hall was open or closed, we would have dined in the lobby of the hotel. Given CoVID restrictions and guidelines, restaurants should disclose the seating arrangements prior to diners making credit card hold reservations. However the host was extremely professional and seated us in the main dining hall as soon as a seat opened up, so he made up for this minor mishap. Otherwise, I would not have been a happy diner.

Saw that the restaurant was serving a prefixed dinner. From start to finish everything was handled very professionally. I thought I made a reservation for outside but evidently hadn’t. The young lady at the front desk went out of her way to make up a table for us. The food was excellent and the servers were very good. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want a great meal at a reasonable price
