Four of us all had a very good dinner at our first visit to Catherine's. The mushroom/crab soup was excellent as was their blackened sea scallops with blackberry jalapeno coulis appetizer. The restaurant is a bit noisy. The owner should put in some sound absorbing material in the dining area to reduce the sound level. We've been to a number of BYOB restaurants in the general area and never had to pay a BYOB fee. We were surprised and turned off to see it listed on the menu.

We had a wonderful dinner on a Thursday evening. The restaurant was only 1/3 filled, but the atmosphere was very nice and not noisy. We were celebrating our anniversary and brought a bottle of wine, which was nice, but the $7 fee to open it was a bit high. We had a wonderful appetizer of mushroom with crab meat soup. It arrived piping hot and was delicious. Our entrees were also thoroughly enjoyed. We ordered scallops with tomato, lemon and basil and short ribs, off the bone, over crescent pasta noodles stuffed with mushrooms. Both meals were delicious! The dessert was good. S'mores made with brioche and chocolate. It served 2 and we enjoyed it, but it was not on the level of dinner and appetizer. The waitress was wonderful, checking on us but not overdoing it. A wonderful night. Outdoor seating is available in nice weather and looked like it would be a very nice option.

A casual but sophisticated restaurant, BYOB if you like. Dinner for six included a spicy Caesar salad, wine glazed filet, blackened tuna, duck breast, pasta with shrimp and crab cakes. Vegan friendly if you (unfortunately) need that as well. Nice atmosphere, excellent service and well above average food. The filet and tuna were standouts. There's no bar, but there is an outdoor patio.

I had dinner on a weekday evening. The food was very good and the service was more than average, but the room is so noisy, everyone is hollering, even though the room was less than half filled. It made for an unpleasant evening. The food was excellent and well prepared, though when you realize Unionville is practically in farm country, more fresh and seasonal items should be on the menu. The weather didn't permit eating outdoors, but the back looked very inviting and tranquil, might be worthy of another try..

This is the same restaurant already listed as Catherine's in Unionville, PA, with 44 reviews. The mailing address is perhaps Kennett Square but the location is Unionville.
