Catherine's is our favorite restaurant--and we eat out a lot. The atmosphere is relaxing with candlelight and an open feeling--perfect for conversation. The service is outstanding--personal and responsive but not intrusive. And best of all is the food. From salads and appetizers to main dishes and desserts, the food quality and preparation here is simply the best we have experienced... More

I have been coming to Catherine's BYOB restaurant for about a decade, though I have to admit, I took a several year hiatus when I had a few snobbish interactions with staff while making reservations. Nothing turns me off faster than a business that treats their customers like an inconvenience. But, I was missing the environment and wanted to share... More

Dined for dinner on 6/14/14 - and because of the balloon festival, we were a little late for our 6:30pm reservation. The restaurant was very busy (inside and outside dining), but we were quickly served bread and had our wine opened. We did have to wait to a menu, as the number of patrons caused them to run out of... More

First Tip- If you are not from this area Do Not go to "Kennet Square" and start looking for this place. But Do have dinner there. It is easily one of the best BYOB restaurants we have ever been to. Inside looked dark as we had read but we sat outside and it was perfect. The staff is warm and... More

The ambiance, environment and food made for a delightful, relaxing, and delicious dinner experience. The menu is somewhat limited in number of selections, but more than makes up for it with the quality of its offerings. My dinner companions and I agreed that Catherines is one of the best restaurants in the region. It's also a BYOB, which actually is... More

After passing passing Catherine's dozens of times over the years, my wife and I made a post-Valentine's lunch date. This charming former general store has been updated to 21st century quaint. It boasts hardwood floors, plaster walls, and a cantilever ceiling, but with Wi-Fi. As soon as you enter, you'll want to silence your smartphone or IPod because of the... More

Should you be planning a sojourn to the picturesque Brandywine Valley, Catherine’s Restaurant, 1701 West Doe Run Road, Kennett Square (Unionville), PA, enjoys an enviable location. If you’re an oenophile, the restaurant is just down the road from Galer Vineyard and a stone’s throw from the Chadds Ford Winery & Total Wines. On the other hand, if you’re an art... More

What a terrific place! I had heard so many good things about Catherine’s, but I’m sorry to say that it took me way too long to finally reserve a table here. I’m happy that I finally came to my senses! The lighting in the dining room is quite low, powered by lots of tea candles and some dimmed overhead track... More

Four of us all had a very good dinner at our first visit to Catherine's. The mushroom/crab soup was excellent as was their blackened sea scallops with blackberry jalapeno coulis appetizer. The restaurant is a bit noisy. The owner should put in some sound absorbing material in the dining area to reduce the sound level. We've been to a number... More

We had a wonderful dinner on a Thursday evening. The restaurant was only 1/3 filled, but the atmosphere was very nice and not noisy. We were celebrating our anniversary and brought a bottle of wine, which was nice, but the $7 fee to open it was a bit high. We had a wonderful appetizer of mushroom with crab meat soup.... More
