Cathédrale is a French-Mediterranean restaurant by Tao Group Hospitality Chef/Partner Ralph Scamardella, in collaboration with Executive Chef Jason Hall (formerly of acclaimed restaurants like Gotham Bar & Grill, Anthos and Craft). The menu brings elemental, ingredient-driven cooking to the forefront, evoking the grandeur of the past while remaining contemporary in its execution. Dishes put pleasure over spectacle, taking inspiration from Southern France with traces of Italy, Spain and Greece as seen in Ribeye Steak au Poivre, Chickpea Socca Pancake and Bouillabaisse ‘Tetou’ for the table, as well as Baked Red Snapper Provençal and Rotisserie Chicken Chasseur.

    It was nice. No complaints. Went for an intimate birthday celebration for my bf. He wasn’t impressed but I liked the ambiance. Our waitress was perfect. We had the filet and lamb. Both tasted nice. One of our sides came late. Otherwise nothing noteworthy for “upscale” French dining. Go for the mood not the food lol.

    All of our dishes were wonderful. The waiter Jorge was very friendly and helpful . The manager came over and was very welcoming. The manager Massiel Mendoza was very welcoming. The place was packed but the service was great! The bus people were very efficient. Our water glasses always filled. We were celebrating a friend’s birthday with her three girlfriends. We shared 2 appetizers - the delicious stuffed dates and heirloom tomato tartine that turned out to be tasty bruschetta but not a tart as expected . We shared 2 main courses - rib steak and roasted chicken both done perfectly and 2 sides- gourmet Mac and cheese and wild mushrooms which paired well with our food. The desserts were fabulous- lemon mousse in the shape of a lemon with a yellow chocolate shell that we crack set on top of a sorbet- very cool, sour cherry stuffed beignets with a sweet cream sauce for dipping and an ice cream chocolate cake. The wine and cocktails were good. They let us taste some wines before we settled on a bottle of Pinot Gris we liked. The music was 80’s and 90’s hits which was a lot of fun. The vibe was very festive. We sat in a comfortable large circular booth with a great vantage point to the room. The decor was modern with very high ceilings and dim lighting but plenty of light to see our food and each other with a cool lamp hung above our table. All in all we left satisfied and had a great meal with wonderful service.

    Honestly our server was amazing she had blonde curly hair. Super sweet and thoughtful AND helpful, made everything feel better. I feel like the entire host staff needs to be retrained because honestly they weren’t welcoming at all being that it was a special dinner night for us.

    We were excited about this restaurant. It was a disappointment. First, we were seated in the spill over section which is a glass enclosure filled with plastic plants. What’s the point of a place called Cathedral if you end up sitting in a location like this? Even with this poor start, we hoped the food and drinks would make up for the lack of ambiance. The drinks were good. Well mixed. Flavorful. And a decent pour. Wine list was varied and had many prices to accommodate most budgets. The menu appeared great. As in amazing. The food that came out, unfortunately, was a bust. Macaroni was watery. There was a tiny piece of ham in it. The meats were all over cooked. As in dry. And the desserts were bland and unimaginative. Lastly, there aren’t enough waiters. It was difficult to flag our waiter for assistance becusse he had so many tables. He was pleasant, helpful, and had lots of opinions on the food. That’s great. But the restaurant set him up to fail because there were too many tables for him to cover. Go elsewhere.

    Worst service we ever received in the city. Server just disappeared. A manager needed to bring our check and close us out. Dessert was good. Not a memorable experience. The bartender was amazing. Should have ate at the bar.

    Was very excited to try new place in my neighborhood, as the dacor looked nice and the menu prices were above average, I had high expectations. THEY WERE NOT MET! Drinks overpriced Food took over an hour Food quality was poor The salad was old, wilted and dressing on one was water , the other all vinegar The pastry basket $18 was the highlight.

    Service shockingly poor to the point of being almost non-existent. Such a shame because the space is wonderful and the food was good. It’s just difficult to eat without cutlery, and by the time we got the cutlery the food wasn’t really hot. Service went downhill from there. Update: Nearly a whole month (!) after this experience I received an email from the restaurant asking for more details about our booking. Truly, service is not their strong suit.

    The seating hostess and waiter were snippy, rude, and non communicative. Other members of staff were lovely, and I’ve had great experiences here in the past, but I urge them to reconsider how they educate their waitstaff on food allergies. It’s not a good look for a place at this level ✨

    We did not know the main room is closed for brunch!! It should have mentioned that. I specifically chose this place for my visitors from Holland. Very disappointing. Also the other guests (all!!) were SOOOO loud. Facetiming on SPEAKER!! And passing the phone around the table…!! Then 2 young guys next to us talking soooo loud… I thought the place was nice and upscale. But it was as if we were at Times Square:( Food was great though and the service too.

    The restaurant is beautiful - the experience terrible. Waiters rush you to order and you feel like you are on a production line. Biggest joke is the “potato chip omelette.” It’s literally just an omelet with half a dozen potato chips (from a bag) placed on top of it. Zero creativity- it’s a $30 scam. And who wants an omelette as a dinner appetizer? The worst part were the drinks. Mine was so terrible - so overwhelming full of ginger (which was the 5th ingredient listed in the drink) - that I told our server that it was undrinkable. He offered to fix it by bringing a shot of vodka, which seemed odd, but I said ok. It didn’t really help much, but when we got the bill he charged me $19 extra for the shot to “fix” an $18 drink. I told him that was outrageous and to remove it from the bill. After keeping us waiting for 15 minutes he handed me back the bill and removed the cost of the drink but left the more expensive shot And no apology whatsoever. If you want to see the beautiful interior design go for a drink and find a place that has quality food. In NYC that s very easy to find.

    La location è bellissima! Aspettando il nostro tavolo abbiamo bevuto 2 cocktail al bancone serviti da un barman eccezionale! Cena ottima, solo il servizio forse lascia un po a desiderare, non sanno coordinare bene le pietanze e le bevande! Mangiato benissimo!! Si spende parecchio ma è in media con quello che si spende a nyc

    I went with a friend visiting from out of town but we both thought it’d be a great spot for a date (sit at the bar, etc.). The ambiance is great and the drink menu is cool. The truffle fettuccini was fabulous & would order it again with one of the steaks if I went back.
