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.

Wow. What an upscale, exquisite place to have Thanksgiving dinner! The food was delicious, outstanding & presented on a lovely plate. Even the rolls & olives were wonderful. The service was impeccable even for a busy holiday dinner. Desert was divine. The music was insane. I loved it! My friend & I plan to come back maybe even for a New Years dinner. Loved this place. Catherdrale truly rocks and is the place to go!

Thanksgiving dinner, food was delicious and varied. Refreshing cocktails and great service.

A little on the loud side and tight seating, expected given the holiday crowds.

I honestly forgot our Server's name, but he was amazing. My friend and I had an RSVP for 2pm and it was her birthday. He presented her birthday beignets. He was knowledgeable and paid close attention to all of her allergies. We had an amazing time, and we closed out the brunch portion of the day, we were the last ones to leave, and the staff was accommodating and didn't make us feel rushed. The food was delicious, and so was the champagne flights.

I chose this place because it was connected to the hotel we stayed at (the moxy). The whole experience was just amazing. The food was delicious, and our server was more then amazing. Very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions we had. He gave us his personal recommendations which we loved since this was the first time we have been here. I will definitely be returning in the future.

I enjoyed many dishes this evening & a bottle of Bilcart rose- my highlights the hamachi crudo was buttery and delicious .I loved the burrata served on chickpea, the crunchy chickpea & smooth creamy combo made me so happy ! Langoustines were cooked & seasoned perfectly ! The installation in the main hall is beautiful- my only complaint is the music choice- it was all over the place & was competing with the chatter of cheap wine ladies surrounding the bar - scoffing at eachother. I would love to hear French techno rather then cheesy American -it could really be the finishing touch at this decadent establishment ❣️

We recently had dinner at Cathedral and it was an exceptional experience across the board. Expensive but well worth every penny!! Add it to your list for a special occasion, first date or in my case re-proposed to my wife to celebrate our 33rd Wedding Anniversary… even took a knee!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Super loud. Terrible service. The food has gone down in quality and massively!
They get confused about allergies! The members of staff and especially the host are unhelpful and too busy chatting among themselves. This restaurant needs managers capable to manage and lead, while providing a good experience!
What a disappointment.

The food was excellent, the desserts not at all. The The service was horrible. The bar tenders showed no empathy at all and our waiter did the same. I went here for my birthday dinner and because I wanted to know the place. I felt like the staff here don’t even smile when greeting you. At one point i overheard the bartenders laugh and comment about how sick they were of customers ordering drinks. Will I visit again? Probably not.

Fantastic ambience, Cathedrale has unique character and all around fun, subdued vibe. The service was excellent, our server was charming and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was incredible. I had the Rotisserie chicken, my girlfriend had the filet and both were absolutely stellar. Their in house brioche bread is possibly the best bread I’ve had at any restaurant.

Gorgeous restaurant, delicious food and wonderful service. I just wish they'd lower the music a bit so we'd be able to have an enjoyable conversation with our friends without having to yell and strain our ears. So I will not be going there a lot because they work hard on spoiling the experience. When will all these restaurants stop listening to idiot consultants and pay attention to their customers instead?

The good was fantastic. Service was strange. Whne we arrived our whole party wasn’t there they had us wait in the bar which was empty and 20 minutes later they seated us and still no drinks. Appetizers and entrees came at the same time. Took forever to get someone to get us our bill and cash out. I was surprised Thao managed it considering our service. Staff was nice but lacking any management

The food was "alright", from all the reviews I expected to be wowed more. The noise was a little high but it was a Saturday night so I expected as much. The oysters were very fresh and the octopus was amazing. The breaded chicken dish was 5/10, the pasta tasted like regular pasta with a hunt of truffle. The cocktails were also "okay" as well as the croquettes. The steak tar tar was subpar, tasted like it needed more salt. The restaurant is very classy, I love the marble bar top, the bathroom was very clean and the look of it is amazing. The food however, was not. The attendants and servers were great, very attentive and replaced dishes easily, re filled glasses and continuously wiped down the tables for us. If you are looking for a nice spot for dinner, this is fine, but if you've flown in from out of state, book elsewhere for a more mouth watering experience.

Went to Cathedral with my Fiance for my birthday dinner and we were beyond impressed. The vibe in the restaurant is absolutely stunning and the food was delicious! Do not leave without trying the grilled octopus and truffle pasta. Best we've ever had! We especially loved that the portions of food weren't tiny. We've gone to so many tasty restaurants in NYC and sometimes leave hungry because of small portion size, but Cathedrale got it just right. We will be back with a group next time!

We loved the space and the food was great. Initially, we had to get menus because the menu was not in the bindings—not a big deal. Major complaint: a lot of the music was too clubby with lots of reverb, loud and overpowering. Other pieces were a nice mix. Think you should give the aesthetics more of an opportunity to speak and dial down the volume. I hope you take this into consideration as it’s too special a place to have to be fighting with acoustics.
