Bar - looks nice but bartender had no recommendations. Drinks were good but you’ll need to know what you want when ordering.
Service - waitress was personable and service was decent but left empty glassware and dishes all over the table. Dessert menus were dropped on the table while everyone was still eating dinner.
Food - ok but nothing impressive. Bread served with mustard butter...will NOT serve you regular butter or olive oil.
Decor - nicely decorated but bathroom needs some TLC.
Overall impression — over priced for the quality

This was an eye opener. We parked at the back entrance, not knowing what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. The decor is great. Enjoyed the table cloths and napkins. The service is super. They have the biggest wine collection we have ever seen, and the prices are fair.

When the 8 of us went out for dinner last night we had no idea what a special evening we would have. Even with a slight heavy hand of salt from the kitchen (that was corrected without issue immediately) everything was great. Table service by Timothy was excellent and the young lady on the piano was lovely.

This place grabbed my eye after reviewing dinner menus in Big Bear for a spot to eat on our last night at the Lake. Black Kat did not disappoint! Everything we ordered was pretty spot on, salt and pepper prawns were properly seasoned and a nice size. Calamari Steak was served hot and was a very generous portion. Went light on the entrees, my wife and I sharing a baby kale salad and the steelhead trout which was actually phenomenal! Properly cooked and seasoned and simply pared with a delicious rendition of fingerling potatoes. Asian pear tart could definitely use some work, server was on top of everything, would definitely return!!
