The Red Cat was a comfortable and pleasant choice for Saturday Brunch. My only complaints are that we wanted to order a sharing item for the table while we looked at the menu - we were hungry. We were told that we had to place our whole order at once. We have had this experience at other New York restaurants... More

This came as a recommendation and we were lucky to find space to dine at the bar. Cocktails delicous as was the food. The pasta is homemade and light. Salads delicous. A good taste of new New York.

Have to agree with the other reviews. NIce intimate place with interesting food and good service. Our dinners were varied from Pork, to Calf Livers, to steak to Risotto. All were pretty good bit nothing memorable. The liveliness of the place was a very good vibe for our party of 4. I'd give it another try.

Yum!!! They pack you in, but it wasn't too much, gets a little loud. The service was knowledgeable, friendly and timely. I had the CHICKEN LIVER AND FOIE GRAS TERRINE for an appetizer and the QUICK SAUTÉ OF ZUCCHINI for dinner. Both fresh, wonderful flavors and awesome presentation. My husband had the BUFALA FRESCA MOZZARELLA, which was quite large and... More

We enjoyed an amazing 3 course brunch - did not eat another bite all day! The choices were creative and a little out of the ordinary, tailored to the season. Service was great too.

I went to the Red Cat for the second time and enjoyed it again. The food is very good, the staff are very nice and the prices are reasonable. It has a local feel and although we are not locals we've felt very welcome.

After a long day at a trade show, a colleague took us to the Red Cat for dinner. We arrived early and sat at the bar for a pre-meal cocktail. Our bartender was spot on with service and great drinks. His eye and ear for details made for a good start. We were then seated for dinner and was given... More

After walking the Highline in the drizzle this was just the spot to rest and enjoy before moving on to the Whitney! It was a Monday and therefore quiet, but we were pleased for the calm, and found the food to be good value and delicious. Cute decor, clean. I would go again.

We happened on this restaurant while skimming places online. Booked dinner for our first night in town and am so happy we did. The pretty bar in front is warm and inviting. We were seated further back, on a banquette. We started with a couple of appetizers, Steak tartar and Bufala Fresca Mozzarella - new take on both of these.... More

This Old Chelsea food hall is a New York original. The Red Cat's combination of come-as-you-are sensibilities and straightforward, satisfying, and occasionally irreverent cuisine instantly establish the restaurant as a favorite with New York diners. As Frank Bruni wrote in the New York Times, "The Red Cat feels vaguely colonial and tavern like, except when it feels downtown-gallery cool, and apart from those moments when it feels modestly and eclectically elegant." If you are unable to book online, please call us directly and we will do our best to accommodate you.
