It's such a shame. Kate's Corner (Old Name) used to be so different and cool. The waiters were so relaxed yet service was quick and to the point. Now, Kates' tastes different. The Ginger Tofu was blah, Shepherds Pie brown and bland, The Sloppy Josephine tasted JUST like the Shephards Pie and The Fake Steak was overdressed and dull tasting. We asked to have the music turned down twice, yet the waitress obviously didn't since the screaming high-voiced female did not waver in her persuit to make your ears bleed. We waited 30 minutes for menus, 20 minutes to be informed our waitress would take our orders soon, and 10 minutes to actually have our orders taken. And that was on an empty night. Don't waist your time. If you're looking for an awesome alternative, go to Dojo.

For some reason I ignored the other negative reviews and decided to give this place a try, lured in by the seemingly tasty vegetarian menu. My evening began by burning my arm on a scaldingly hot pipe right next to our table, marked only with a post it saying "hot". It took them 20 minutes to come to the table, where they proceded to be out of everything we wanted. The cutlets I got were so tasty on the outside, and so tofu bland on the inside! The shepherds pie was equally disappointing. It took our server forever to do everything, and to top it all off- we were made to suffer a Van Morrison album in it's entirety twice!

This was the first veg place I went to in the city, since then it has only been a disappointment. The first few times I went I loved it, but this last time will definitely be the last. The women who took my delivery order was rude, condescending and down right disrespectful. The food arrived on time (but I'm only a 5 min walk away). When the delivery man came he couldn't even break a $10...I was forced to pay him in quarters b/c of this! Really? Who delivers food and doesn't have change. Then came the food....the biggest disappointment of all. Totally not what is used to be....or what it should be. This will unfortunately be my last time at Kates.

I met up with a friend for dinner the other night. It was pretty cold out. After we sat down to eat I realized that it wasn't that much warmed in the restaurant. I kept my hat and scarf on during the meal and eventually put my coat on while waiting for my friend to finish her meal. The heat would periodically kick on and off...but it was definitely off more than on. Another customer complained about the temperature as well. I ate at the Kate's Joint in Bklyn and was pretty damn cold there too. Food was so-so. Dont' think I will be going back. It just isn't worth the money.

The buffalo wings are unbelievably good. Most other stuff is pretty good too.

Kates is one of our favorite brunch places, I get to eat my vegies and chille while my partner gets his always yummy huevos rancheros.The only thing missing is organic decalf coffee. Dinner has gotten pricy, if you want organic greans instead of broccoli they charge extra and dont give much. All in all we love it.

Kates used to be my 3 day a week habit, but it's gone downhill in the last year. I ordered a veggie burger tonight for delivery. I was told it would take 25 minutes. I finally got my order and hour and a half after ordering it. Cold. My soda was tonic water instead of ginger ale. When I called, several times, to check on my order, the person from Kate's could have cared less how long overdue my order was. I really wanted Kate's to be amazing like I remembered. But it's not anymore. There are plenty of other great veggie place in the east village.
