This is fine dining! It is expensive but worth it! The Cheese plate is a must. We went for a special occasion and it was perfect!

I came here six months ago and am so happy I did! I almost ran over my dates toes after he liberated a gift for me. Fantastic French food with an attentive staff! Must go back for an anniversary!

Since we moved to Westfield in 1984, my husband and I have gone to Chez Catherine every year on our Anniversary in July. The food, atmosphere, and service is superb.

My wife and I have always wanted to try Chez Catherine for dinner and we chose her recent birthday to do so. We went on a week day when they were less crowded. This was everything you could ask for in an upscale French restaurant. Very relaxing and beautiful atmosphere, attentive service from everyone, and most of all, the food... More

As usual the experience begins with parking which is ample. A short walk to the door brings you to the ambiance of Paris. The escargot was delightful and the duck exceptional. The house wines compliment the dishes well. Service was great with staff attentive. The deserts looked great but unfortunately could not be enjoyed. A little pricey but worth it.

My wife and I recently had dinner at Chez Catherine. After we were warmly greeted at the door, we were taken to our table where Stephan expertly catered to our every need. We started off with cocktails, and then progressed through a wonderful dinner accompanied by a wine chosen from their comprehensive wine list. I had the Mussels in white... More

Small intimate place with delicious food and very attentive service. Unfortunately because the tables are close the couples next to us were extremely loud/rude which was really the only downside.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. The place has recently changed owners, but there have been very few changes so far, mostly an expanded liquor list. They have a 3 or 4 prix fixe menu which is on the expensive side. The escargots were delicious, as was the arctic char. Presentation is lovely. The ile flottante was... More

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
