It was OK. Everyone enjoyed their food. The service was not the same as the first time I was at the Katharine Brasserie. The first time I hosted a dinner, this time a lunch.

Absolutely outstanding! We were visiting Winston-Salem for two days. After dining there the first night, we looked at other menus on Open Table, but couldn’t find anything that could compete with Katharine’s, so we went back! The meal starts with the crispiest French baguette and salted butter - mmmmm! The French onion soup is better than any I’ve had in Paris. The spring vegetables in herb butter were so delicious we ordered them both nights! The spaetzle accompanying the schnitzel was sautéed to perfection. Don’t miss this gem!

Went to Katharine's for my wife's birthday dinner. It was one of the first cool nights of fall, so we were very comfortable sitting outside on the patio. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was quiet but not dead. I had the most tender short ribs and my wife had lobster gnocchi obviously homemade and delicious. The Reynolds Building is my favorite in downtown Winston Salem, and Katharine fits perfectly into the history and ambiance of the site.

Yet another great experience at the Katharine. Introduced a business associate from St. Louis and we both enjoyed the Trout (my favorite dish by the way). Started with the beet salad and my colleague had a green salad that the waitress happily offered up off the menu. Both fresh and delicious. I love this place and a great location for an early business dinner before the crowds come in...

Yet another great meal on a busy Saturday night. My colleague and I seated promptly with attentive servers who respected our desire for conversation but kept our water glasses full. I had the Trout again, simply put my favorite meal here. It is light and beautifully presented. My colleague had the Salmon. We started with the Cheese Plate which never fails to delight... All in all a productive and delicious two hours!

Music was excellent, too bad there is nowhere comfortable to sit after your meal and enjoy. Cobb salad was lettuce and avocado slices very disappointing, eggs Benedict had runny whites and too much vinegar flavor, burger bun was stale and hard. Guys cooking we’re working hard but visibly sweating in the small space, less than appealing considering they were preparing food. Brunch buffet turkey looked like it had been there for too long, pastries looked day old, and the French toast was thin and limp. Server did his best and wS friendly. Had it not been for the great music, it would have been a total loss. Would not go back for the food.

Was not impressed with the service. Our appetizers came at different times and our entrees took a long time. Our waiter was not that friendly and was quite short when we asked questions. Food was just ok not terrific.

We were staying in the hotel so we decided to stay there to eat. The food was fine, nothing special. Thought it was rather expensive. Service was good. Not much of a selection on the menu. I had fish, it was rather plain and dry.

We started with a cocktail at the bar, nice team behind the bar, love the cocktails. Moved on to the dining room , brasserie française meets art deco , casual flair with a little "je ne sais quoi". excellent service and the quality of the food met our expectations. Looking forward to visit again.

Another visit which was a combination of hospital colleagues and family! Food as always perfectly done. I stayed on script with The. North Carolina Trout. Another delicious fresh tasting experience. My wife had the scallops crude raw bar and vegetable medley Cote for the first time. Two great tasting and well sized portions for smaller appetites. The Scallops have a sooothing citrus taste and melt in the mouth. Another great night at our home away from home.

We had a wonderful date night for my wife and I. They have replaced the awful booth's and they not only look good but are comfortable ! Our server Kate did a fine job was attentive and did not rush us. The wine list was a little on pricey side so we chose a bottle of house Chard. that was good but still pricey at $11.00 per glass or $40.00 per bottle. We had the special and it was excellent. All in all we would go back. It has free valet parking with a two hour Maximum. Just right ! We will go back,nice people all over the place.

Another fantastic night! This time Mom joined two of the boys and me. Seated against the back kitchen booth (our request through Open Table). Kate, the server was wonderful and unobtrusive but ever ready. The boys has flat iron steaks and fries and ate them to completion. This after a course starting with Oysters and a cheese plate. I had the special Mussels Indochine. I miss the Basque mussels but this may be a new favorite. Layered with vermicelli in a curry broth. Amazing idea and product. Anna had the beet salad. Run and don't walk to this great Winston restaurant. By the way the Rose is delightful to start the palate with...

Another great experience at this family’s favorite restaurant. Wife and sons 2 and 3 out of town. Dad there with 1 and 4 at their request. Number 4, our 9 year old conducts the menu choices. We started with a dozen oysters all delicious and fresh accompanied by the Mac and cheese. We moved to a leisurely exploration of the Regional Cheese Plate. This is a high value dish that provides great taste experiences and is beautifully presented. For entrees, Number one had the Salmon and Number 4 and I split the Friday night special bouillabaisse. Leek and potato and carrot and mussels along with flounder. In a tomato based sauce. Both dishes absolutely magnificent. And of course frites normal with Mayonnaise.

Once again a bistro experience that values the family and food experience equally.
Finally thanks to our servers Kate and Raymond for a relaxing attentive dinner experience.

The food was not as good as I had hoped, but still good. Their fried Brussels sprouts are divine and they make a good cocktail. Pretty loud environment with a fairly aggressive choice in music, in my opinion. The waiter was not great - we seemed like an afterthought to him until the check was delivered. Service just seemed a bit haphazard for the price point of the restaurant. It would be a fun place to dine at the bar with friends, but I wouldn't go there for dinner again otherwise.

My husband and I celebrated our 9 year anniversary here and we were not disappointed! The food was incredible as well as the handcrafted cocktails! Everyone who waited on us, from the hostess to the waitress who gave us our check, were so kind and attentive! The ambiance and aesthetic is stunning, it feels like you’ve stepped back in time. Also for how many people were there it was quiet, which is lovely for conversation.
We will definitely return!

Yet another perfect night at The Katherine. First off, great job on improving the noise level. This time accompanied by two of our four boys, our 25 year old and 9 year old. Francis, the server was spectacular (as always) in his attentiveness and knowledge of the menu and cocktails. We started with a dozen oysters on the half shell, split evenly between Blue Point, Virginia, Washington and a Cape Cod variety that was new to us called Big Red. So fresh and briny with a perfectly spicy mignonette to drizzle over them. Next, the cheese plate with crostini. Four nice triangles of cheese, hard to soft, tangy to mellow. For dinner the youngest had his standby, mussels in a lemon based white broth accompanied by frites normal with a side of mayonnaise. And he isn't even from Northern France : ). The oldest had a the burger with frites with truffle aioli. I had the Rainbow trout for the first time. Amazingly done with a butter sauce and olives. Fish so soft it seemed to be a taste melting in the mouth. The youngest ended the night with the Fruit accompanied Flan whiled Number one and I enjoyed a glass apiece of Port. Kudos again to the kitchen staff, always fun to see them working in unison! See you again very soon.
