Absolutely loved everything from A-Z, went with my woman and I did not know what to expect, hands down Liz was phenomenal. The food and presentation + the "general merriment"? Worth every minute of the experience!!!!!! You could feel her passion on the plate, and in the kitchen. The professionalism was top notch.

I don't usually go out for dinner on holidays because places are usually overcrowded, with less than attentive service and not much attention to detail with regard to what comes out of the kitchen. I am very happy to say this was NOT the case when I visited Catalpa for Valentine's Day!! Each course was excellent in both preparation and... More

My husband surprised me with a night out at Catalpa. We came all the way from St. Louis and it was totally worth it. We sat right in the kitchen and chatted with Liz and the staff throughout the meal. She let us in on how different aspects of our meal were being made. The food and service were exceptional!!!...

My first time at Catalpa was a 6 course dinner matched with wine for each course. Spanish wines were featured. Each course from appetizer to dessert was exceptional (hence the name of this review). Ever had octopus and potatoes on crostini with smoked Spanish paprika vinaigrette?? (Didn't think so)...dessert featured tres leches cake, cinnamon ice cream with spiced chocilate sauce.... More

I was hesitant to drive over an hour for dinner even with a great group of people. I was immediately enamored by the quaint cottage that houses Catalpa. It's adorable! Eclectic paintings and furnishings piqued my curiosity and I was not disappointed. Chef Liz and staff were friendly and knowledgeable about each ingredient and course. This was a six course... More

The soup and salad were divine; the best I had ever tasted. The flavor combinations were incredible, chef took them to new heights. The entree and dessert were just meh. Was rather disappointed.

I do not think that I have ever experienced a better meal. The pork Osso Buco was exquisite, as were the appetizers and yummy yeast rolls. The blackberry cobbler was delicious as well. Treat yourself! It is worth the drive to Arrow Rock to experience only this fabulous establishment.

Cozy and fun atmosphere, quaint location, with marvelous food, beautiful and artistically presented! We had the salmon and duck....WOW! Truly a staff of professionals! Dinners prices are on the high end for a small Missouri town, but certainly well priced for the outstanding cuisine. My husband and I had heard rave reviews from friends, so celebrated our anniversary there. Can't... More

Spent the weekend in Arrow Rock, MO. After watching a wonderful performance at the theater, we had dinner at Catalpa. We had read about the restaurant and decided to pay a visit. Very quaint location. Enjoyed a bottle of Decero, Malbec with our meal. We had the gambas for appetizer, fresh spinach and beet salad which I could have continued... More
