We celebrated my husband's birthday at Catbird Seat. It was a wonderful dining experience. There's a difference between dining out and a dining event. We enjoyed the food and watching the preparation. They were able to accommodate out gluten free diet. The food was delightful since they used some ingredients that the general public probably hasn't experienced, like sorrel. The service was excellent. My husband ordered the wine flight but wished he had ordered my non-alcoholic flight. The non-alcohol creations are phenomenal! Fresh and bright. The service was excellent. We would have rated them a 4.5 since there were some dishes neither one of us agreed on. It came down to personal preferences. The experience was well worth the cost.

We were expecting great things and were not disappointed. The food, the drink pairings, the service, the experience all unbelievable. We have eaten in many fine restaurants around the world and this we will remember as one of the best. It is worth every penny! The downside is that we probably will not go back because it may be impossible to recreate again!

Excellent dishes with unique presentation.
Good interaction with staff, but not enough seating space in the waiting hall since guests are being seated one group at the time.
Wine list is limited also .
Strongly recommended.

One of the most impressive tasting menus of 2017. Chef Ryan Poli and his crew have created a truly one-of-a-kind dining experiences that surpasses most of Michelin-starred restaurants in NYC (I'm from New York).

We travel extensively, and this restaurant exceeds many gastro experiences we have had in major food destinations such as NY, Paris, Florence, etc. The menu was interesting but did not include "weird" food, just unusual combinations like roasted kelp on butternut squash with caviar, sunflower risotto with black truffle, and a miso pasta with crab and sea urchin. It's a chef's tasting menu, consisting of numerous small plates, so the menu is at the chef's discretion. We elected to have the wine pairings, which included one beer and a sake. The evening was really enjoyable, and the interaction with the chefs and sommelier enhanced the experience. The Patterson House, the bar on the ground floor, is not to be missed, either!
