REVIEWS OF Chez Catherine IN New Jersey

Bob Jones

Small restaurant in Westfield that always gets super ratings by all. We had a wonderful dinner and dining experience there.

James Tome

One of our favorite local restaurants. Not cheap but a great meal.

Louis Francz

Small restaurant with good French faire with appropriate prices. American size portions - Dover Sole was whole fish filleted at table. Owner is waiter.

Stella Sun

I ordered fish of the day which is skate fish. It apparently had gone very, very bad since it tastes like it's soaked in Ammonium. I hate spitting food on table so I swallowed it, and felt noxious because of the disgusting taste. Owner explained that skate fish should be kept for no more than two days, but they got this fish three days ago... Come on, you know it'll be bad but still serve it? They did cooked a new piece of salmon for me, but still charged for the salmon. For this kind of experience a nice gesture should be offering the replacement dish for free. Besides the spoiled food, the food here is generally too oily and salty, and lacks flavor. Very disappointed.

Came here for a birthday dinner, and it was the best meal I had in a long time. Appetizer, main course, and desert were amazing. (Escargot, duck, and frozen chocolate moose). Also had a couple cocktails that were very good. Very small and popular, so you will need to call weeks in advance to get a reservation.

The place for a special dinner. If you are in the mood for French food this is the place. Chef is a perfectionist and staff is very attentive.

Mario Longhi

There isn’t really nothing that justifies the high price for this menu. The food is OK, but it’s definitely overpriced for what is delivered. Ambience is great and service is also very good.


Full French experience without getting on a plane. Food is absolutely amazing, every dish is a work of art.

Fran Crocco

Excellent food is a lovely little restaurant. Seating is limited so reserve well in advance. Well worth a visit. Menu is prize fixed and a number of items have an extra charge. I can day the Dover Sole is well worth it!

Upscale food and service , great for a celebration

What a wonderful experience at Chez Catherine .. a specially prepared 8 course Anniversary dinner we won’t soon forget. From the Foie gras and fig to the smooth-as-silk celery root soup. The most perfectly cooked scallops amongst a beautiful mix of vegetables so light, fresh and flavorful that you would have thought they were just picked from a garden out back. And the duck! If you have yet to try duck this is the dish to get you hooked. Crisp duck breast and duck confit , wild rice, cherry reduction. All thoughtfully paired with just the right wine selections and the finest service. Thank you Didier, for putting such a wonderful menu together for us. Thank you to Stephane as well. You both made our Anniversary so very special!

The food was creative and full of flavor. We had the tasting menu along with the wine. Perfect portions, well accompanied by the different wines. Our completed tab was approx $300.00 for 2. It was well worth it.

So we have lived in Westfield for over 20 years and this was the first time we dined here, always was under the assumption that French restaurants don't give you enough food. Both me and my wife left stuffed:) The polenta, French onion soup, French onion soup and scallops and steak dishes were all very tasty. Raspberry souffle was great also. A bit pricey and limited, Prix fixe menu.. bit worth it. And very cozy, Maybe seats 30 people at a time .

It's rare you eat at a restaurant with perfect execution of dishes, but a flubbing on flavor profile. Tarragon and Asparagus in Risotto, but not enough cheese to balance out the bitterness. Tomato butter with basil which overpowered the filet. Small mistakes, but at almost $600 for a table of 4, this starts to build as a strange experience. Coupled with the overly stuffy room, where the flower arrangements attack your sense of smell to divert flavor away from dishes, and the aged decor make you feel like you've visited a place you're likely not old enough to appreciate. Though, the execution of the dishes was phenomenal. The foie gras ganache (Which is a new preparation to me) was as light as a cloud but a bold enough flavor to lift you out of your seat. Though again, the accompaniments weren't sweet or spicy enough to live up to their host. The crust on the filet was sharp enough to cut yourself on, and the seasoning was spot on. But tomato butter and basil overpowered it, or the duck's blakcberry port I had substituted on my plate (while I saw the coming disaster of the tomato butter on the horizon, my company didn't.) The dejour corn soup was brilliantly flavored, though. Even when heavy on the basil oil, the corn stood its ground, and maintained its presence as the star of the show. Dessert was absolutely the winner. The airy and perfect coconut souffle raised tall and light. But the real hidden gem is the Chocolate Mousse. I have had chocolate mousse 250 times in a myriad preparations, but let me say with a clear mind and without a doubt: This is the absolute best chocolate mousse I've ever had. It's not even close. If I could, I would skip the dinner entirely and just eat this perfect quenelle of the most amazingly airy yet dense mouse. The restaurant is too expensive to frequent, and honestly too stuffy and awkward to really want to return. But if they ever decide to serve this mousse alone, or they open a bakery, since it seems dessert is their strong point, I'd be possibly their best customer. Finally, the service was great. Our waiter was fun, read the room well, recommended when asked. Though, it was a fair surprise to know we ordered 3 bottles of pellegrino, and wasn't warned before our glasses were filled. All in all, a decent visit, but it's unlikely I'd return. If you're a young couple looking for a romantic date night, maybe wait 15 years.

Incredible ambiance, staff and patrons seem like family. Living in California, had heard of this from NJ friends. Meal was outstanding and the desserts are off the charts! One of the finest dining experiences of my life. Wish I lived in NJ to make this a regular dining stop!

Adrian rodriguez

Very romantic place

Nancy Griffeth

We go here every your on our wedding anniversary, and have never been disappointed by the food or service. Some especially memorable dishes included a mushroom appetizer and all of the tasting menu. The seafood is always good. So are the desserts. The owner is friendly and welcoming. The price is quite reasonable for what you get.

Unexpectedly good French food at moderate prices. Small restaurant, hard to locate even though it is on amain street. Right next to a hotel entrance.

Out standing good and service


The service and food were both outstanding, We started out with escargot, mussels and beef carpaccio, all 3 were outstanding. The never ending bread basket was filled with wonderfully toasty baguette. For the main entrees we had duck breast with a port wine reduction and vegetables, yummy. The best duck breast either of us ever had, hands down. Of course every great dinner is followed up with a great dessert and they did Not disappoint. We had the acclaimed mousse du chocolat and and wonderful soufflé du jour, again both we’re outstanding. The servers were also very attentive and professional. I highly recommend this place for a great relaxing French dining experience.
