Reve is one of the go-to places in Stillwater.

if you want to have a nice time with friends. On a weekend there is life music and it is good. The service is good and friendly, the wines are good and their beers and the rest of the bar is good as well.

We used to like going there for lunch, but have not been back for a while. Lunch items like the hamburger sliders were my favorites.

Outdoors seating in summer will be great once the new bridge is up and the big trucks don't go through town anymore. Can't wait for that.

Danielle was fantastic as soon as we entered the restaurant. She led us to 2 comfy chairs near the fireplace and had us instantly relax. She gave great recommendations on wine and food. We sat there for 2-3 hours and had a really fun time. Try the spinach-artichoke appetizer, the Italian sausage flatbread, & the burgers... simply amazing .. parlayed with the superb customer service = 5 star experience. Will definitely go back.

For an idea of how I rate:
1=Horrible with no return planned ever
2=Not the worst, wouldn't plan a return on our own, but would go if invited
3=Average, take it or leave it, wouldn't care if we went back or not
4=Memorable and worth a return trip, but missing something that puts it over the top
5=Memorable and excited about a return trip to try more, has food we've never had and want more of

This place was an awesome, awesome surprise. You walk in and immediately feel like you're in a great spot (though, in downtown Stillwater it's not that difficult). The server was prompt, friendly, and immediately began helping us through the menu, one of them being the drink menu. The Belgian beer list was fantastic. I went with the Doppel, my wife ordered wine, both were great.

To start we had the sausage and goat cheese flatbread with a merlot reduction. This, by far, was one of the best flatbreads we have ever had. The plops of goat cheese with the mushrooms were fantastic, and the reduction was a perfect addition. We saved some for leftovers today.

For entrees, she had the bacon mac 'n cheese (there are several meat options for the mac 'n cheese, by the way), I had the sausage and risotto. It was amazing. Simply amazing. I may be completely gaudy about my review, but we were seriously that impressed by the flavor of this food. These were meals that we ended up eating slowly because we wanted to enjoy them. And, we boxed the rest to have for lunch today :)

We finished with the chocolate mousse tort. Now, we're not huge fans of that kind of dessert; however, it had a really beautiful presentation and had a ton of fruity and rich flavors that came out in the sauces. We ate the whole thing, it was great.

Will we be back? Without a doubt. Memorable dishes? The best mac 'n cheese we've ever had, fantastic sausage, amazing flatbread, awesome beer, cool dessert - yes, we'll be back. We can't wait to try more!

By the way, there is the sticker on their window showing they are/were a top restaurant on Tripadvisor, haha. Well deserved!

When there are five customers in the restaurant and you STILL can not get served in a timely manner there is a problem. The food is sporadically good or bad- you never know. The attitude of the owners is just really poor. I'm thinking they either write their own positive reviews or something else fishy is going on. This is not a good restaurant.

We are terribly sorry that you did not have a good experience when you visited our restaurant. If there is a way we can make it up to you, please call the restaurant and ask for Mike. Otherwise, we would like to extend an offer to you of a $25 dollar gift card if you would be willing to give us an explanation of what happened. Our food and service are the two most important things we can offer and we are sorry you were not pleased with either.

Went there on a weekday, so wasn't too busy. Loved the decor, staff was very friendly and the
food was excellent-a very good chef.
