The Cat is truly a special find. It is located in a small strip mall in La Habra, and my wife had found it 18 years ago or more. We have since been back at least 3-4 times a year, and it NEVER disappoints. The Cat is a higher end restaurant, with a varied selection of food. The appetizer list... More

Went here again to celebrate an anniversary, had high expectations and was delighted to have them met and surpassed. Started with prosciutto-wrapped shrimp, cooked to perfection and wonderful sauces along with sweet mini-bites of pineapple. Their small but well thought out wine by the glass included Domaine Carneros Brut, which was terrific. I enjoyed a Grenache from Paso Robles which... More

I've been going to the Cat for many years and was apprehensive when they summarily dispensed with the cat themes and somewhat restructured the menu. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see the food was as good as ever and the overall ambiance still pleasing, still resembling a UK pub. Booths are the most comfortable whether on the main floor... More

Nice quaint place to have your afternoon tea and sandwiches. The food was not bad but I felt it was a bit pricey. I have only been there once and not sure if I will go back.

I met up with a former work colleague, an annual event. We had become disillusioned with 'Pretty Food ' at an exaggerated price. . We agreed to give this pub a try. A little out of the way but not the back and beyond. Clean surroundings and a friendly welcome. We had made a booking and our table was indicated... More
