My husband and I ate my birthday dinner at the Red Cat and it was a wonderful experience. We had a 5:30 reservation because we booked only a few days before--definitely call way ahead if you plan to eat here because this place is hopping! We had a table on the covered front room, which was nice because it was... More

My husband phoned me after having a great dinner when he sailed to Oak Bluffs. He had one request - go there when you get to the Vineyard tomorrow. And we did, all six of us. We began with their Brussels sprout appetizer plus calamari and tuna tartare - delicious! We didn't leave a morsel. Don't know what they did... More

We made a spontaneous decision to have dinner at the Red Cat Kitchen, they were very accommodating and we had to take an early time but it was so worth it. The food was incredibly creative, fresh, and delicious. The chef is extremely talented. The vegetarian in our party was extremely pleased with the Vegetarian Showdown, I loved the special... More

Lots of reviews, but no one talks about the "chefs inspiration"...the tasting menu. There is always a risk in trying new places and particularly leaving your meal up to someone else, but the first course was tuna tartar (fixed a way I have never had), with onions, peppers, cheese, and some sort of basil infused oil. Wow! The next course... More

By far not only some of the best food we had, but the best service, and the most considerate management. Our reservation was for 8 and obviously the previous party was in no hurry to leave! Management could not stop apologizing, getting us a drink, checking on our comfort, and continuously thanking us for our understanding! They were very cute... More

Every aspect of our dining experience exceeded our expectations. I had reservations at 8:15 for a party of four last saturday night and the place was completely packed. We had to wait a little bit longer than expected to be seated but it was more than worth it. We were greeted by a kind and lovely hostess, who seemed to... More

My daughter insisted we try this place. They are only open for dinner and I highly recommend a reservation. We did not have a reservation, but stopped by the restaurant in the morning and the chef saw us talking about how we needed one and he walked us through the kitchen to the bar to talk to someone about getting...

This restaurant is proud of its fresh fish and it's fresh produce . We enjoyed the vegetable Clam fresco which was a cold refreshing soup with clams, tomatoes, spices and fresh vegetables. My wife had the lobster risotto which was divine. I had the sea bass which was cooked on top of a medley of vegetables. We ate outside on... More
