We are looking forward to returning to the Raw Bar. Great food. Katherine's menu is appropriately limited. Our dishes were well prepared. Our waitperson was respectful, watchful, and invisible.

Food was great, service was great. I’d recommend the ribeye steak & flat bread app to anyone. If you’re as luck as we were they’ll also have the grilled oysters special the day you decide to eat there.

I want to love this place SO bad! The space is beautiful, and it’s such a great repurposing of a beautiful building. BUT... we ordered three steak frittes, two medium-rare and one medium, and they were ALL medium well. Also, I ordered an oyster appetizer which was not turned in to the kitchen. I had to remind the server I’d ordered it so it came with my entree. I feel like this place is very good, but in order to survive, especially in these challenging times. It needs to be exceptional. They need a leadership team that can take them to o the next level.

We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with dinner at The Katherine. Everyone at the restaurant was extraordinarily nice and made every effort to ensure we had a wonderful experience. The manager, Erin, welcomed us and checked to be sure everything was to our liking. Our server was attentive, but did not hover. She was so friendly and pleasant. I wish I could remember her name! The food was excellent. My wife had the salmon and I had the New York Strip, with the roquefort au poivre sauce/butter and fingerling potatoes. Both of us could not remember having enjoyed a better meal. And then our server offered us a complimentary dessert since it was our anniversary! We chose the s'mores pot au creme, which was a brand new dessert, and we were the first ones to try it. It was amazing - chocolate mousse/pot au creme with sugary granola topped with marshmallow that had just a slight, smoky tinge to it. Our server told us that the executive chef had recently left and that the sous chef had taken over. I'm glad we came when the sous chef was in charge of the kitchen because everything was perfect! I cannot say enough about this dinner - the food was great, the service was wonderful, the ambience was pleasant, cheerful, and fun, and everyone in the restaurant seemed to enjoy ensuring that our experience was top-notch. I do not write many reviews, but The Katherine and its staff deserve more than 5 stars and every accolade possible. Thank you so much!

Very nice establishment. It was easy to obtain a reservation. Our wait staff was very nice and the food was good. It was a little hard to find using GPS and you’ll need to use the valet parking (it’s free). The food was very good but the brussel sprouts were undercooked and we had to remind them to bring one of the dishes we ordered. There were few people there when we were so it was relatively quiet but I can imagine that it could get loud easily in there. I would go again, but probably not my first choice.

Our experience at Katharine Brasserie she was extremely knowledgable and every recommendation was delicious. From our drinks, to our main course, there wasn't a minute that went by that we did not enjoy. It was a beautiful setting and a fantastic atmosphere. Definitely will go back again. Thank you so much for giving us a wonderful evening.

Excellent meal for a hotel restaurant. Duck breast lovely, trout vey good. Simple Caesar, perfectly dressed. Not really a French restaurant and pretty pricey for the food itself, but a nice respite after a day on the road.

Our experiences at the Katharine have been uneven at best and unsatisfactory at worst. It's a beautiful space and it's unfortunate that the service and food don't match that. Our server was very pleasant, although it was a while before she took our drink orders. Soup came out lukewarm and the fettuccini with bolognese arrived cold and with hardly any sauce. Very disappointing. This has happened to us in one way or another every time we've dined there. A Kimpton property should have a better managed restaurant.

Great location beautiful old building
Very expensive cocktail was $26 for a Manhattan
Bouillabaisse was really bad no flavor with some cut up potatoes and weak broth
3 mussels and one cut up shrimp not hearty at all for almost 30 bucks

Day after Valentine’s Day and they were still serving a limited menu (please restaurants—stop doing this—take enough reservations for what you can serve and stop there and keep your regular menu—don’t try to Increase the number of guests you can serve by limiting the menu.)
But the food was exceptionally prepared and the service top notch with some excellent recommendations by our waiter. The noice a bit much at times given that the restaurant opens to the hotel lobby with a bar area next to it but not a deal breaker. Definitely will be back.

It’s a beautiful place, the cocktails were amazing, wine selection was great the food was outstanding, however we had to wait 45 mins for a reservation we made more than a month ago, we were there for Valentine’s Day and were squeezed in between two small tables were we could literally touch elbows with two other couples there was no privacy whatsoever and it was so loud we couldn’t even conversate with one another not the Valentines experience we had hoped for so we were disappointed with that

We visited for a Valentine's Day dinner and enjoyed the meal thoroughly. Drinks and entrees were a bit expensive though fairly priced for the quality and presentation of the dishes. My steak was cooked perfectly, but my wife's was not -- a bit disappointing for a high-end restaurant, but our servers were very gracious and corrected the error immediately. Overall it was a great experience, and we would dine here again.

We experienced very slow service. It took almost an hour to get our entree. My husband had a steak, which he thought was good. I had a special - scallops and sweet potatoes. We also ordered Mac and cheese. I was not impressed with the Mac or scallops, especially considering the price of the food.

We were very impressed with the Katharine. First of all the staff is extremely friendly, from the hostess , to the bar staff, management, servers, and anyone we saw.
The food was outstanding. I can't say enough about that. Reasonable pricing as well. The bar is very beautiful, and the seats are very comfortable. We also sat in the hotel area with our cocktails and it was lovely. We are coming back soon and staying in the hotel. Don't miss this one!

Our experience was disappointing. We have been to the Katharine many times for multiple family occasions. Every time we have had an enjoyable experience. Sunday morning was not one of those times. We chose the Sunday brunch buffet as our dining option. We have been to the Sunday buffet before and thoroughly enjoyed it. We worked our way down to the buffet around 10:30. There was no one at the omelet station and the carving station was not set up. We sat down and tried again 15 minutes later. One of us had an omelet but before another in our party could order the person making omelets walked away. The carving station was eventually set up but there was no one to slice the meat. The french toast was stacked very high in the chafer and all of the top pieces were dried out and could not be cut. We were one of only a handful of tables and a little confused with all the staff in plain site why the buffet was not set up.
On a positive note, the server was very attentive with refills of all of our beverages.

We will return to the Katharine as we usually have a great time and thoroughly enjoy the food. This just wasn't one of those times.

We went for Christmas Brunch because our family is in another state and we couldn't get away for work reasons. We brought our 7month old daughter and they were very accommodating to us and gave a proper seat that could fit a high chair. I was blown away by the food, it was fabulous!! The potato & pork belly confit hash was phenomenal and the brussel sprout dish was just ridiculously delicious. My husband had a go at the omelette and waffles and gave a thumbs up. I also had the lamb and Christmas ham from the cutting station, so good. The only part that was disappointing was the dessert station - we had out reservation at 2:15 and it looked a mess and picked over. The pieces of pies looked like they were thrown on the serving plates and and a few items that they said would be there , weren't - like the cinnamon beignets for example. The pecan pie wasn't really good, almost flat like non-baker made and the cheesecake was room temp and plain. I did have a Bijou cocktail that made up for the non-impressive desserts. I'd definitely go back and try more cocktails and maybe some Hors d'Oeuvres. Overall it was a nice Christmas experience.
