Managed to get an early reservation for Red Cat. Couldn't have been happier with the meal from beginning to end. Service: impeccable! Food: outstanding! You won't be disappointed either.

Came for a bite to eat before 'Sleep no more' which is held conveniently close by. Rang ahead to let them know we were running late and had a show booked and the staff could not have been more helpful or lovely, and rushed us through to make sure we made the show and enjoyed our meal. We had a... More

The last time we were in NYC was 2 weeks after. 911 and there were still flames coming out of Ground Zero! We came back15 years later to celebrate our 40th Anniversary and are having a wonderful time! After going to the Intrepid and walking through the Highline park, we decided it was time for lunch and we found the... More

This restaurant is everything I like. A cozy, well decorated environment, friendly service, a seasonal menu with local, in season items. I found the staff to be welcoming and inventing. We had a warm welcome when we walked in and our waiter was personable, friendly and knew the menu. I started with an excellent Manhattan from the bar - done... More

We were running late for a show. The restaurant happily took our call when we said we were running late and calmly got our food and drink organised in 45 minutes. We weren't late for the show. The service was charming and the food delicious. Nothing to dislike.

While visiting NYC from Australia, we came across the Red Cat. Our first visit was incredible! Wonderful food, fantastic service and relaxed atmosphere. We returned a few more times and were never disappointed. I loved this restaurant. I could have eaten there every day.

We hadn't been to the RC in several years but we always found it to be a reliable, solid choice for dinner. And we fondly remembered the tempura beans, and they were just as good this time. But everything else didn't live up to pAst expectations. The service was at best indifferent and at worst. The waiter seemed annoyed at... More

This was one of the best dining experiences we've had in recent memory. The service was attentive and charming. The food was uniformly excellent, and beautifully presented. Members of our party had the hanger steak, tempura green beans (a signature dish, highly recommended), grilled calamari, grilled pork, arugula and parmesan salad, and cecamariti; all got rave reviews. We were visiting... More

Being HIP is something you do not try for "it just is" While at the bar waiting for my table the music in the background played "SUGAR SUGAR" at first I was taken back but shortly realized just how cool it was. The service is great and done by people who like their job. WHY not the food is something... 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.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
