after ten years of living in New York, this was my first time eating here! I think it may be my new favorite neighborhood spot. Everything was delicious, and the service was great. Love.
An ex boyfriend introduced me to the Cat several years ago and we would dine here on a semi-frequent basis, but I hadn't been back for a few years. Some friends were in from France and I was delighted to find that the Cat was still a great dining experience. Everyone loved the food. Randall, Gabrielle and our waitperson Erin could not have been more welcoming and attentive. One friend especially liked the music selections - and she's a professional jazz musician. I hope to be a more frequent visitor and to introduce the Cat to more friends.
Be prepared for impeccable, helpful and friendly service - it's why The Red Cat is a semi-finalist in the 2018 Outstanding Service nomination by the James Beard Foundation.
This neighborhood gem provides a flavorful meal with plenty of options for every diet. The Pumpkin Agnolotti is perfection, as is the All Natural Chicken which is a very generously sized portion. The craft cocktails are notable, including The Wilson and Christmas in Mexico. The wine selection is also upscale and broad enough to find something that meets your palette. Try the cheese plate for dessert, but save room for the complimentary chocolate truffles too.
Always great drinks, food and excellent service. We had the liver and the hake. A bit loud this time, however.
Excellent experience with my wife and daughter. The food was delicious and the service exceptional.
There for brunch. If we hadn't had a 30% discount I would have been very angry. 2 "baked" eggs (looked poached, which is ok) on a bed of watery sauteed spinach for $15. And 2 pieces of toast. No better than diner food. Shocking for what used to be a great restaurant.
The food and service were fantastic! The tables are a bit cramped and the prices were high (not crazy). We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!
We have never had a bad meal here we'll be back. From our drinks at the bar to our wonderful deserts, a good meal was had by all.
We enjoyed our meals, but when I tried three recommended dishes, I was somewhat disappointed. The potatoes surrounding my octopus a la plancha were burned. The skate was plentiful but not special; the apricot tart was boring. The terrine was outstanding, and the semifreddo looked fabulous, though I didn't get a taste.
We had a Blackboard coupon, so I was pleased by the value. Don't know that I would go back, unless I was doing something in the neighborhood.
Loved the half price on wines $90-200 on Thursdays - great idea! Delicious food as always . The staff are most pleasant and accommodating . Highly recommend this place.
No mystery why Red Cat endures. Terrific food, excellent service, lively atmosphere. We’ve been coming for years and it never disappoints.
Great food and service. I bit noisy, since we were placed near the bar. Great wine bargain. Half price for some wines on Thursdays.
Really enjoyed the Red Cat. Food was creative and delicious. Enjoyed the appetizers, hangar steak and duck risotto. Service was excellent. I recommend it!
