I find the food here quite average. I ordered Fruite de Mare, and it tasted as though they had just taken it out of the refrigerator. Nothing really exceptional about it at all. Had it as an entree instead of an appetizer, and it was just okay. The desserts seem to be much better!

Stopped by for dinner on a visit to Madison. Loved the food, as always, and introduced our friends to another place we live to visit.

Tried the fall menu today and it was wonderful: pumpkin soup, pumpkin risotto and bakd ziti siciliana with eggplant and meatballs, and the fried zucchini sticks were all delicious. The service is excellent, the wine list is very good. The bar was packed and bustling on a Friday evening but we got in without a reservation.

We have enjoyed many a dinner at the Café. We also chose this as our rehearsal dinner venue for my daughters wedding. Absolutely no complaints here.

We happened upon this restaurant, drawn in by the linen tablecloths and old-world decor. The menu outside looked interesting. Unfortunately our meal was disappointing. We began with appetizers--escargot and an eggplant special that was similar to a ratatouille--chunks of eggplant, cherry tomatoes, capers, olive oil and basil topped with cold grated cheese. The eggplant was slightly undercooked and although the... More

We've been here for lunch many times. Their pork dish special is excellent. Even if you don't go on a Tuesday, the chef will make the pork meal for you.
