We visited Cate's during a beautiful fall weekend in the Adirondacks. Understanding that it was not peak season, we still can not say enough about the quality of service for dinner. Cate was at the front of the restaurant and made it a point to stop by and check on us throughout our dinner. Our waitress (I've forgotten her name) struck a nice balance of checking in without interrupting a relaxing meal. Summary: the food (appetizers, entrees and dessert) were great and we appreciate the service provided by the staff. We got a pizza take out the following night and it also was delicious.

This was the first night in quite some time that my husband and I were able to have a night out without our children, so the bar was already set pretty high as to how well we expected everything to go. Not only was that height reached it was EXCEEDED. The service was phenomenal! Our server, Tracy, was so attentive, and friendly, in an unobtrusive kind of way, when you are alone with your spouse for the first time in a long time, you don't need the server constantly interrupting you. Tracy seemed to just automatically know when the time was right to refill beverages, inquire as to whether everything was to our liking, etc. The service, in my opinion is the most important aspect of any restaurant experience for me, and Tracy served us the most fabulous food we have had in a long time. I am very critical of Italian food I order at a restaurant, and there was nothing I could not honestly say was SUPERB, from the appetizer to the main course, right through my decadent dessert. The next restaurant that I visit will have to work very hard to even come close to the spectacular experience we enjoyed at Cates!

The service, ambience and lighting were poor, had to use a torch to see the menu. Not really but very close.
Was so disapointed in the food, it was very bland, and poor presentation, seemed like they just chucked it on the plate.
Sorry but this is not a top spot here.

We were looking for something light for dinner and Cate's fit the bill. Typical Italian restaurant with an extensive southern Italy menu. We opted for the Caprese salad and a pizza. Both were very good and more than enough to share. Server was extremely friendly. Would return without hesitation.
