    It starts with the convenient curbside valet parking. Then, there was Shelby, our server, who was just great, polite, timely, non-interruptive and gracious! Mark the manager? came over to thank us for purchasing the special, a delicious pot roast for two with all the fixins', because 10% of the proceeds go to feed hungry children! We also enjoyed drinks and oysters from the bar and glasses of a fine Bordeaux Superior. Afterwards Mark gave us a tour of one of the two snow globes on the patio outside the bar. The igloos can accommodate 4-12 guests and are perfect for a long lunch, office happy hour, gathering of friends, or pre-dinner dance party. We will be back with friends!

    Such a lovely place, and attentive and able staff. Unfortunately, the food was so lacking that some members of our party won't be back. One dish (pork shank) was ice cold when served and vegetables on the plate were nearly raw. Another dish (noodles w/ shrimp) was served with nearly raw shrimp with shells on and the noodles/coconut sauce were so mushy as to be almost inedible. Roquette salad featured good quality greens and cheese, but no dressing (for a what should be a lightly dressed salad). Steaks and fries were good. We wanted it to be so much better than it was.

    The service was excellent as was the food. The only part of the meal that was disappointing was the dessert! Even the pricey drink was great so would go again , just not as often as I would like due to the cost !

    We enjoyed the 2022 Thanksgiving menu. Our food was delicious and Gene our server did a wonderful job. The atmosphere was very festive and we were so glad to land a sort of last minute (day before) reservation. We had to change our plans to travel and this opportunity to try The Katherine did not disappoint.

    The only reason I didn’t give it five stars, and overall, was because we had to wait about 20 minutes after we arrived on time for our reservation. Our service outstanding and the food delicious. We were able to have a traditional Thanksgiving, with some wonderful recipe elevations. The service was a team approach and it worked very well. Only problem was we didn’t have leftovers to take home!

    The Katherine is located in the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel in downtown Winston-Salem. Valet parking is available and is comped with your meal at The Katherine. The reservation system worked well. They have a good wine and beer selection. The dining area was open and well lit, not too noisy. Our waitress was attentive, but did not have much to add about the menu. We ordered a charcuterie and mussels for appetizers. Both were just ok. My entree was Vadouvan cellophane noodles with sweet potatoes and shrimp. The heat in this noodle dish drowned out all other flavors and they forget the shrimp! The sweet potatoes were not cooked through and were still hard on the cut edges. It really felt unfinished and thrown together. There was no balance to the flavors, and it had a slimy feel. When I reminded the waitress I had shrimp with the noodles, she hastily brought out some broiled salted shrimp on a plate. They were delicious, the best part of my meal, but not incorporated into the dish at all. Honestly, I don't know if they could have helped. Our other orders were for pot roast and ok, but not outstanding. The dessert was a flourless chocolate cake which was dense in texture. Nobody liked it enough to finish it with our meal.

    Waitress was very attentive and nice. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Hostess was very rude and had smart comments that weren’t necessary. We made a reservation for 2 and had our infant. He’s 4 months old and stays in the car seat so we’re still learning on what to do as far as reservations. There were 2 other families eating in the whole restaurant. Hostess was rude about it being a “party of 3” now. Overall everything else was good but she needs to work on people skills.

    Wonderful space and location in historic RJ Reynolds building, adjourning boutique hotel "The Cardinal". We had reservations for 3 at 6:15 on a Friday evening and were greeted and seated promptly by the smiling, friendly hostess. (The gentlemen/maitre d at the stand appeared to be struggling with his smile and friendliness). Servers were attentive without being obtrusive and knowledgeable. We started with the escargot (very good) and an order of Brussel sprouts (perhaps a tad too fried, but good). Our party had an order of the salmon, the wild boar shank, and the duck. The salmon and boar got good reviews, I felt the duck was a bit pedestrian and the bed of Cassoulet very dry and flavorless. Cream Brulee for dessert was generously portioned and delicious. We did not order anything beyond a glass of wine, but nearby tables appeared to be enjoying many of the craft cocktails. I definitely would like to return and try the Cheerwine Old Fashioned.

    Katharine Brasserie & BarResponded on November 15, 2022Dash! I'm so glad you had a good experience. My apologies for the duck not being everything you expected! I appreciate the feedback the good and the bad. This is definitely how we continue to grow and be the best that we can be for you and other guests in the future. I hope you will return someday soon and try the Cheerwine Old Fashioned and the others from our signature old fashioned menu. Appreciate you my friend. Best, Justin Rankin Bar Supervisor

    While we opted to sit at a table by the beautiful bar due to the volume in the dinging room, the meal was just as delectable and delicious! The cocktails and dishes were appropriately priced and portioned. I was planning on a steak leading up to the dinner, but could not ignore the braised boar shank which was PHENOMENAL! Hoping to return here in the near future!
