This was our first trip to Katherine Brasserie. The environment was very good and the food was delicious. Our server did a great job as well.

this was billed as an upscale restaurant in a luxury boutique hotel but the atmosphere was more of an IHOP than a brasserie. we never ordered and fled up the street to a place that was recommended to us.

They were out of everything both times we were there - no sprite - no ginger ale - no apple juice - no Seagrams - no crown … all fine but the service and attitudes and 1.5 hours to get through our dinner bc of slow service …. Chicken was super tender and sauce was delicious if it wasn’t completely covered in peppercorns. Every bite was like eating a mouthful of peppercorns. Overall servers were just rude all night …

Obnoxious guests loud rude. And accompanied by a dog in a baby stroller. 8 in party and our server catered to that party to our detriment. So loud one couple moved.
Drinks fine but over valued and steaks were well cooked and good quality but lost something served with regular old fries. Historic location but just another hotel restaurant. Will not be back.

The management was very considerate and provided a complimentary champagne toast. The food was excellent. The only downside was an extremely rude and loud party of eight with a dog (not sure why it was permitted in the restaurant.)

Excellent food, modern atmosphere, however it was a birthday dinner and they knew it, they mentioned it at check in. would have appreciated a cookie with a candle or something at the close of a $125 per person meal. Too bad there is a lack of attention to detail front of house.

Food was mediocre at best which was disappointing given how excellent the ambience and service was. They need a new chef who can bring up the amazing potential this restaurant has.

We had a wide variety of dishes and not one morsel was left on our plates. From shrimp cocktail, oysters and mussels for starters, to salmon, trout, chicken poivre and filet with truffle fries, it was all delicious. Server Jason was friendly, knowledgeable and glad to make small adjustments to our order. He helped choose the wine and was always nearby but not hovering. The pots du creme was out of this world!
It was a great experience and we will definitely be back.

Very busy, buzzy place, even on a Thursday night. Drinks (both cocktails and wine glasses) were good but small for the price. The food was delicious and the servings were ample without being over the top. The Cardinal Hotel where the restaurant is located is quite an amazing Art Deco. Be sure to take a walk through the lobby and notice the ceiling and th gorgeous elevators! Highly recommend!

This was a family celebration for Mother’s Day. A brunch was served for $50 each. The quality of the food was consistently subpar. The crepes were overdone and dry, the pain perdu limp, asparagus over-cooked, etc. Our server was excellent and apologized. We Wynette be back.
