We celebrated Meg's birthday last night at Chez Catherine. Stéphane Bocket and Klaus Kronsteiner provided a taste of Provence right here in NJ. From the Amuse-Bouche to the last taste of Tiramisu Soufflé, each dish was artfully plated and perfectly paired with the proper wine. The chef's tasting menu showcased classic French dishes prepared with modern touches like dehydrated olives... More

We hadn't dined here in many years, but had the opportunity to visit recently. Food was fresh, very good, and well prepared and presented; portions are on the small side. Staff were courteous and attentive. Our basis of comparison, however, is a little biased, as we remember the days of Catherine coming out of the kitchen with complimentary treats and... More

My wife and I were taking out a relative who was celebrating his 90th birthday. We wanted to make this a special day and he loves French food. To start off the restaurant is small and very tight which makes it loud. Our waiter was on the rude side. My wife asked for a dry Champaign, his response was "brut... More

Wonderful ! Classy place yet homey. Outstanding professional service. Steak tartare amuse was outstanding. Escargot and mussel appetizers equally delicious . At the table the wait filleted the Dover sole like a surgeon. My boulaibaise had a bonus half Maine lobster that was not even listed as past of the entree. The soft meringue with toasted hazelnuts was excellent! I... More

We have frequented this restaurant several times over the last few years. The food has always been excellent but lately it has not been on the same par with meals we have enjoyed there in the past. Today, we were to celebrate my mom's 97th birthday! I made a reservation several weeks ago for lunch. Restaurant management was aware that... More

If what you are seeking is the real deal as far as French food is concerned, this is it! It's a little pricey but so worth it. I love the quaintness of the restaurant and it's intimate ambience.
