Catherine's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely lovely spot with outstanding service. Now, that said, we were the only party there, but our server was unusually attentive and accommodating. Most diners seemed to enjoy their meals. My scallops were a little strong but the crabmeat topping was plentiful and delicious. It would seem unreasonable to assume that the same chef is still there, but quite a few years ago, I found the food to be so over-peppered (black) that I had to send it back. Surprisingly, this was the case again, way too much pepper!!! So chef, please go easy with the S & P - would rather add it myself!
The welcoming, artsy, relaxed atmosphere combined with friendly service and top notch food made dining at Catherine's a memorable experience. From the first taste, it was clear why previous reviewers raved about the mushroom and crab soup. Truly exceptional. Can't wait to return!
We enjoyed our dinner at Catherine's while on a birthday getaway to Kennett Square. Food and service were exceptional. We had blackened tuna and sea scallops, both remarkable dishes. Oh, and cream of mushroom-crab soup! This was a return visit – the noise level was quite a bit louder than we first experienced – difficult to converse.
First time visiting Catherine's after driving by it for years! Lovely candle lit patio with a very relaxing atmosphere. The food was delicious and we loved that it was a BYO. The wait was longer than expected, but we didn't mind since we were in good company. Will be back!
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Catherine's. We sat outside and the setting was charming. Food was even better! Highly recommend the mushroom crab soup and scallop entree. And the pumpkin bread pudding was amazing with two scoops of vanilla ice cream!
We make an pilgrimage to Catherine's annually from Baltimore as the food is so good. Location was a bit difficult to find at first but now we go on 82 north and no problem. The mushroom soup is superb and the desserts are always delicious. It is a true gem and well worth the drive.
We'd been looking forward to Catherine's for a birthday brunch on a sunny fall Sunday afternoon. It did not disappoint! The service was relaxed but appropriately attentive. The food was worth the drive and a fine value - maybe a tad on the expensive side, but wow! Well-balanced meaty and vegetarian dishes. It could be a special meal for anyone.
A must stop for anyone looking for a quaint, authentic local restaurant. Their mushroom soup is to die for! I had their blackened tuna and my fiance had the sea scallops. Both were cooked to perfection and were good portions without being leaving you stuffed so you can enjoy their fabulous bread pudding. This was our first time at Catherine's but will definitely not be our last!
Have always wanted to go and so we did to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our server was terrific. Tara was her name. She answered questions, made recommendations and made us feel very special. Food was as advertised, delicious. We look forward to visiting again.
Catherine's is a gem. It's part and parcel of a distinctive country warmth and charm that is every day more elusive. It's a cornerstone of Unionville village. The friend and fine cook who recommended Catherine's to us was not mistaken: Everything the four of us ordered was delicious and well presented by friendly, welcoming, and highly efficient staff. And then there is the terrace. The next time we are there, we may book a table at the very appealing dining spot at the back. Oh, and the BYO alcohol policy - with a truly tiny corking fee - lets you bring and consume with your meal exactly what pleases you. Not to be missed.
Catherine's is a wonderful place for a delicious, romantic and reasonably priced dinner. The staff is so great- kind and real. The food always so good, the desserts are homemade and very special. A byob - and the outdoor seating is romantic and comfortable. Try the crab mushroom soup, the short rib angiolotti, key lime pie (or any of the desserts). The daily specials are always great too.
