The place is very good and the staff very nice and friendly.
The meat on the stone is a must. Very good quality and very tasty.

We enjoyed a lovely family dinner at Cataract on Paterson recently. Great menu choices, perfect for children (table in the back corner - excellent, swings, activity pack and menu), friendly staff and amazing decor!

“New Years dinner”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

Restaurant setting is great, informally formal if that makes sense. The staff are great and showed interest in out young son, they couldn't do enough and oh yeah, the food is excellent. The steaks are a great cut of local beef and the stone grill is a unique experience.

On such a busy night hats off to the staff!

“Mixed bag”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

After a late booking (encouraging) we didn't get asked for a food order for quite some time. Service was swift and friendly when it came (possibly they were very busy). The seafood platter shouldn't have been on the 'stonegrill' menu. Backstrap was good quality. Food was definitely above average quality for what is effectively a pub bistro type of establishment. A bit too expensive - 'mutton dressed as lamb' perhaps? Overally, had a reasonably good time but would struggle to find a reason to go back.
