394 opened a few months ago and its been a salvation in an otherwise scanty restaurant scene in Catskill.It's the closest thing on either side of the river to a French bistro - where the owners are also the chef and host - greeting and overseeing everything, and constantly coming up with fresh ideas for their menu. Their concept for doing small,medium and large plates makes it easy to refine your ordering to your appetite as well as mixing and matching a variety of choices. The steak frites w/ the maytag blue cheese sauce is perfect and the lamb sliders are savory yummies that you won't find elsewhere.Gil the owner is also a brilliant baker so if you're looking for a breakfast spot this is THE place in Catskill.His blueberry scones are the best I've ever had and a warmed-up pain au chocolat(chocolate croissant) brings bliss.The staff is well-schooled in turning out the best espresso-based coffees on their Italian machine. The only limit is their open hours - only Thursday through Sat, w/ a Sunday brunch. This is my second review as I've become a regular there.

Wonderful new place w/ elegant atmosphere and flawless food,at different price options ,depending on your appetite. Simple and sophisticated - raises the bar on dining in Catskill but not the price level.

Had not intended to dine here but glad we did. Charming restaurant that is a welcome addition to Main Street. We shared five small plates - four would have been plenty. Brussel sprouts with pomegranate aioli and roasted beets with ricotta were excellent. Onion soup with Brie good. Lamb sliders were a bit dry and not warm enough but the flavor was great. The disappointment was the escargot pie. Too bland. Would have preferred it to be typical escargot drowning in butter and garlic topped with the flaky crust. Attentive service and nice atmosphere. If you are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary this place is for you.

We are long time residents of the area and recently strolled Main St, Catskill as we'd noticed some new life. Lucky for us we did. Among the new offerings is this charming little restaurant and cafe. The menu is quite interesting and most items are offered in either small or large portions. My husband and I ordered 4 small portions and shared which worked perfectly. We enjoyed oyster tacos, beets and goat cheese, steak and frites and pork belly sliders. The steak was probably the best but we really enjoyed the casual ambiance, the attentive service, new tastes and the chance to support the town. We will definitely come back and work our way through the rest of the menu.
