We decided to go here for our anniversary as online it was supposed to be a "romantic spot." The food was okay, and the decor was nice. The service was excellent. However, it was so loud in there, I'm not sure how anyone could categorize this as "romantic." We left, skipping for dessert, as we had enough shouting our conversation... More

After reviewing a hundred places for Saturday night dinner on our long weekend in the Brandywine valley, I selected Catherine's for a first time dinner. I was not disappointed nor was my fiancé. The place was full when we got there, but we got a great little table within 5 minutes. The mushroom soup was " to die for". It... More

Came here for dinner after a visit at Longwood Gardens. A charming restaurant with friendly staff. The mushroom crab soup was delectable. The shrimp noodles and scallop entrée were both amazing. It's BYOB!!! You will not be disappointed!

We went here for a business meeting a few weeks back. Enjoyed the atmosphere and our waitress was engaging. Food was delicious! We each ordered something different - shared bites and could not have enjoyed our time here more. BYOB! Next time we will definitely bring wine. Intimate experience, great service and servings that will leave you patting your tummy!... More

Have enjoyed Catherine's many times before; however, tonight I was disappointed. Since both the filet and short ribs were no longer available, I ordered crab cakes. Well they were gelatinous and I could not detect any crab. I gave one crab cake to my husband and part of the other crab cake to our friend. Everyone commented it was not... More

We tried the restaurant based on a gift certificate from our daughter. Great dining experience. The ambience is very charming, old Chester County. Set in an old general store the tables are compact but your are not on top of your neighbors. High ceilings makes it a bit noisy with resonating conversations but not at all obtrusive. The service was... More

Fantastic place in the heart of Unionville. The mushroom and crab soup appetizer is a must! I had the filet and my wife had the scallops which were excellent. The chocolate chipotle breadless cake had a definite kick to it. Good, not great. Tap water tastes like rust. Make sure you ask for bottled water!

We had a great brunch at Catherine's on Sunday morning. The Bananas Foster Belgian Waffles was a BIG hit, the bacon was thick, the multi-grain bread was fresh and thick; and the Eggs Benedict was just right. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Catherine's is a nice stop for brunch in the Kennett Square/Unionville area.

This is a BYOB and the food is "outstanding" as is the service. My wife and I have never had a bad experience there and our friends have been pleasantly surprised when we have taken them and they can't wait to return!
