First off, if the stars were just for ambiance, this restaurant would get a 5. Especially the outdoor area....very charming. It was dark in the restaurant but very pretty. The two star rating is due to the very impersonal service. And the fact that there was nowhere to park, The owner very casually told me to park in a lot... More

Great atmosphere and super friendly staff. Second time I have been there and the menu selections seemed to change, which is nice. BYOB restaurant. Menu items are creative and delicious.

I enjoyed this experience in the Thanksgiving time. My scallops were excellent, and the garden salad was very well prepared. We had a Sancerre that was well chosen for our 3 person meal. My one-star off is for the the temp server who really didn't know the menu. I'd go back here for a leisurely brunch, in particular.

This is a small, intimate restaurant with an interesting and delectable menu! I had the braised short ribs with agnolotti pasta porcini mushrooms and Madeira cream sauce. It was excellent, and my companions raved about their meals as well. Our waiter was wonderful and very patient with our questions and no one gave us a hard time for hanging out... More

We were a party of four and unfortunately sat by the door. Other than the poor seating we all enjoyed our meals. Two of us had the braised short ribs with pasta which was rich and fabulous. Others each had the scallops, wonderful, and the tuna, no complaints. The special chopped salad with jumbo lump and feta was also a... More

Quaint atmosphere in this restaurant in the village of Unionville. Candle lit room makes for a romantic setting. We have been here several times and have always left unsatisfied. The menu is on the pricey side for average food. Come in through the back door as parking is in the rear. We have done brunch there too with the same... More

Husband and I went couple years here for dinner, both said average. I returned for a quick lunch last month. The food still is average. Last night also attended an event there, again the food is average. The atmosphere is pleasant. For that area, it is a needed place, but wish they would enhance their foodie skills. By the way,...

What a gem. We asked a friend for some recommendations for dinner near Kennett Square. We chose Catherine's (it's our daughter's name) and WOW. Excellent food and the nicest service. Most of their meat, cheese and produce is locally sourced and wonderful . Will come again for sure!

My husband and I went here during the week. Very eclectic decor and atmosphere. BYOB , with reasonable corkage fee. We had several appetizers, scallops were very good. They were pan seared or grilled with a nice char on them and a delectable berry glaze. Mushroom and crab soup tasty. All in all it was a very nice experience .... More

We went there tonight to celebrate our 53rd anniversary. The meal was excellent. Both the blackened tuna entree and the goat cheese ravioli were very tasty. The restaurant is located in an older house which has been redone to a high standard-not overly fancy but nice. The waiter was very helpful in recommending dishes to try. Overall, an outstanding experience... More
