    Party of 4 for brunch. We all enjoyed our food and the ambience. We were well taken care of. A little on the expensive side but we all enjoyed it and will return.

    Steak was very good; I had chicken stew, also excellent. Squash soup was flavorful. Waiter was friendly and attentive. Definitely will be back! Only thing I could criticize is the background music…too loud and distracting. I’d either lower volume or go to some older jazz or a background music.

    Hi, realizing all pricing has gone up in restaurants, it is sad people have to spend so much to enjoy a night out. Portions were decent not overwhelming. I think the average person will be dining out less due to high cost of living.

    My friend asked for a mocktail for me even though there's nothing on the menu. They came up with a great "herbal" mocktail that I would love to know the recipe for! Was thrilled they were able to accommodate that request.

    We decided to pick items from different parts of the menu. One cocktail, a beet salad, U-10 scallops starter, Brussels sprouts side, salmon dinner entree and winter crisp dessert. Pros: cocktail, salad, scallops, sprouts & dessert were all done well. Cons: Sprouts side was way too much food for just 2 of us. Waiter could have warned us on portion size. Salmon was undercooked to our liking: on the very light side. In hindsight, we should’ve sent it back to cook further. Scallops appetizer was tasty but only 3 pieces - pricey for amount provided. Overall bill: $115 before tip. Enjoyed restaurant, ambience and attentive service but regret some of our food selections. That said, would definitely go again.

    Three Cats is a fun, funky experience. Food was good, especially the wild mushroom soup and the butternut squash soup. Crème brûlée was wonderful. The only problem was the chairs; they contribute to the overall ambiance but are extremely uncomfortable. It would be nice to have some seating available with padded chairs.

    Celebrating birthdays, which was noted in reservation yet not acknowledged at any point during our visit. Service was okay, but hardly great. I did notice the waiter, serving the table next to ours, did acknowledge a birthday they were celebrating, so that was nice to see he had taken notice. Our server seemed distracted and eager to move us along. Food was okay; not great, and yet better than the last visit (March 2022.) I was disappointed I couldn’t get a latte because the machine was broken, and was surprised that coffee was not brewed in time for opening. The music playing was too loud, but could have been due to the location of our table (under a speaker.) I love the ambiance which is why I continue to bring friends to Three Cats Cafe.

    First time visit. Met a former coworker for lunch. The food was excellent and we both enjoyed it. Our server was friendly but when we were finished, we had to flag her down for a check. Wouldn’t have been an issue except that we were both on a lunch break on a work day. Overall, good experience and I plan to go again.

    We had such a great time at 3 Cats. I appreciate that the menu included a vegan option that wasn't a Beyond Burger. My son with a dairy allergy had a delicious risotto that he virtually inhaled. The filet with mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts was so flavorful. I highly recommend the coffee cake bread pudding. Also the butterscotch creme brule was delicious. Service was great.

    When I first ate at 3 Cats Cafe about 2-3 years ago they had a delicious quiche which is no longer offered. I ordered a chicken wrap on 12/27/2022 but it didn't even come with chips. I ordered a side of french fries which were okay. I probably would try a different restaurant in the area on my next visit from Ohio.

    The Christmas Eve dinner had 8 courses. Some very good others ok. If the food arrived warm maybe it would have been better. I understand it is hard for a kitchen to turn out everyones courses at the same time. I enjoy this restaurant . I would go back .

    It was ok. My shrimp cakes were delicious but hubby's roadhouse perch was odd... not crispy at all and bland but the greens that came with it were so salty they were inedible. Daughter got the chicken paillard was so bland we had to ask the server for salt and pepper to try and help it. The cocktails were amazing but the food was so so. I don't feel like we'd go back. Very $$ meal for mediocre food

    Sunday brunch was good not all items great. My husband breakfast good but no plain toast. This is his peeve lately all these fancy brunch places and no one will offer regular plain white bread for toast. Simple ask I would think. The chicken and waffles was ordered by two people in our party and it was very crispy. Almost burnt. For portion, size and price you don’t get a lot of bells and whistles here. The flavor was good not great. I had the mushroom salad which was delicious. I would order that again. The venue is amazing and shopping at Leon and Lulu afterwards as always, so much fun. Just not sure I would go back and make reservations again. I would try something else close by.

    I’ve eaten here several times and normally love it. This was my first sub-par meal here. First, the good: the mushroom bisque was phenomenal. My girlfriend also really enjoyed her salmon. The so-so: the mushroom strudel was good, but a far cry from what it normally is. Way smaller than other times I’ve had it, and not as good. The bad: my medium rare burger was cooked through…not a bit of pink in sight. I never had a chance to tell the waiter bc he didn’t check on us until we were done eating. Done-ness aside, it wasn’t a great burger. The grilled brioche bun was the highlight.

    I ordered the perch and got three smallish pieces of fish. They were very tasty, though. The sides of the butternut squash and spaghetti squash were very good. My friend ordered the porcini crusted filet and said it was very good. Her plate sides of mashed potatoes and crispy brussel sprouts was wiped clean! We passed on dessert. We each had a drink recommended by our server, James, mine was The Mistletoe and hers was the Scarlet Letter. Both were quite good, too.

    They were short staffed which wasn’t a problem. I wish it felt more warm in the restaurant. I was chilled for the entire meal. Food is pricey but we knew to expect this. I won’t be back anytime soon as it’s too expensive for me.
