I love La Catarina. My favorite dish is the beef filet with chile pasilla sauce. Everything is good, the mole, stuffed chile, pork, salads and soups. Don't miss it.

The meal didnt have the quality it used to have. The service was slopy and the prices are high, since they have new owners, they lost the good services and food they use to have.

If you ever want to try something exotic, ask for Escamoles, the flavor of this sort of caviar is buttery and exquisit and goes perfect with tortillas.

My husband took me there for are anniversary and it was worth it. Prices seem high but the food and service is great. The size of the dishes is just perfect and the flavor is great. There are lots of options from the menú, great drinks and beautiful ambiance.

My local friends who know me well chose La Catarina for dinner and I owe them one. Living in Rhode Island, it won't be hard to repay the favor when they visit. The chef must be something of a locavore because there were several specials that seem to include locally sourced ingredients. I achieved a culinary goal of trying the... More

I don't think this is acceptable in a "gourmet restaurant". The decor is... More
