    We had drinks at the bar before dinner. Our bartender, Sara, was amazing and engaging. Dinner was nearly flawless - we had the grouper special, duck breast, and trio of crème brûlées for dessert. Service was spectacular, as always.

    Katherine’s seating area is very cramped and you are likely to sit very close to other patrons. Service was average and given the price was not as good as I expected. The food is very good but there’s nothing exceptional on the menu.

    There was not a good selection of wines by the glass. We ordered a half-bottle instead, but they didn't have in stock so ended up ordering full bottle. Service was almost non-existent. Waiter never refilled wine glasses, never brought bread. We were seated at a very small bistro table in the line of wait staff, so not very relaxing.

    Save your $$. 3rd time, not the charm. Food was average at BEST. Took server more than 5 minutes to approach table. The biggest chinch in the armor, COST! Still reeling that I paid $10 for a cup of coffee and tea. Yes, $5/cup, at lunch no less. Oh, and needed to give a credit card on OpenTable to reserve table. There was ONE OTHER TABLE seated in the entire restaurant when we arrived. We will not be back.

    Our server was Ryan and he was fantastic. Our food was amazing. We got the formage as an appetizer and I highly recommend. We ordered the beef stuff and steak, both of which were amazing. For dessert, we ordered the apple tart and it was decadent without being overly sweet. We already have plans to go back.

    Wonderful dinner experience! I was shocked on how well their staff treated my party. The waiter was very polite and provided us with some wine samples to start. The tuna Tartare was top notch along with our entrees, Shrimp risotto and the Beouf Bourguignon. Would definitely recommend.

    We visited The Katharine for a date night, but it wasn't exactly as we had hoped. The atmosphere, small like a French bistro, was charming but a little noisy. The service was great; everyone was very attentive. The food, however, wasn't quite up to par...decent, but not exceptional.

    As always, a solid meal to share with coworkers and friends. Host and wait staff are above and beyond helpful- and always are ready to anticipate your needs. Truffle Fries are reason enough to have a glass of wine, peruse the menu- make a mental note of what to eat next visit- and enjoy the experience.

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Katharine Brasserie, located in downtown Winston-Salem, and I must say, it was quite an experience! This French restaurant definitely exceeded my expectations with its classy ambiance and impeccable food. The staff at Katharine Brasserie was top-notch and went above and beyond to ensure that I had a great experience. Everything from the service to the presentation of the dishes was exceptional. This restaurant would be perfect for a romantic date night or a special occasion. For dinner, I ordered the Beouf Bourguignon, which consisted of braised beef short rib, caramelized onion, mild mushroom, Brussel sprout leaves, truffle Pomme purée, and red wine sauce. I must say, the beef short ribs were cooked to perfection and were incredibly tender. The flavors of the dish were well-balanced and complemented each other very well. To top off my meal, I had the chocolate mousse with a meringue on top, and it was simply divine. The dessert was rich and decadent, and the meringue on top added a nice touch of texture. Overall, I would highly recommend Katharine Brasserie to anyone looking for an exceptional dining experience. The food, service, and ambiance were all fantastic, and I look forward to returning soon!

    Valet stand was empty (without a be right back sign) when we arrived. Walked inside and the restaurant host stand was also vacant. The only staff in sight was hotel check-in clerk and the bartenders. Since we were right on time for our reservation you would expect that the host would be there to help us check in. Bartender was helpful. Gondola was heated but very dimly lit, which made it hard to read the menu. Our server, Alex, was amazing! Food was very good just very small portions and the menu could have been more geared to the winter season. We came to this restaurant because of the winter globes that were advertised but could not reserve one because we only had two people in our party. We came on a Monday night and no one was renting the winter globes but they were beautiful. They included some type of unknown charge in my final bill but I couldn't really read what it was because of the lighting. Overall unique experience with good food and attentive service from waitress. Just don't walk inside and expect to be welcomed.
