Great small venueA neighborhood gem. Wait staff informal ambience and friendly, food tasty and interesting. Menu fresh and interesting with seasonal changes that resinate well. Continuing to enjoy the West Washington Park ambience, at reasonable prices. Will return soon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur new favorite restaurant!We live in the neighborhood and LOVE this restaurant. We went there for our anniversary this time. The food was exceptional as always! We had the shrimp cerviche appetizer and the duck appetizer. Both were fantastic! The cerviche had huge chunks of shrimp! For dinner we had the bass and the scallops. The bass was our favorite, but we loved both! The wine list is fantastic and includes many wines I had never heard of (I'm assuming they are boutique wines) The wait staff is very knowledgable and always steers us in the right direction (when asked) in choosing one. It is always so fun discovering new wines! The manager, Justin, is very hands on. Like cafebar on Facebook and learn about some of their fun offerings!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Neighborhood RestaurantWe love this place and simply can not get enough. The menu is great! However, we do miss the Brussels sprout salad.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Cafe-Bar!This awesome resturant has a great menu filled with fresh and delicious small bites, salads, and entrees. The service was excellent. Their wine list offered several great looking picks all available by the glass too! We opted for a truly fresh squeezed margarita, delicious! I had the scallops and my husband the bison burger, and we shared the duck appetizer. Then I went back a couple days later to pick up lunch for a few coworkers and I and everyone was more than happy! Will be returning for sure!!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasure with theAlways a pleasure with the very most knowledgeable of a most attentive staff.

And their sides are also excellent; they proved very flexible about switching one entree's designated side for another. But the main courses themselves are a mixed bag. One of our party enjoyed the salmon. Another found the pheasant to be wanting. Think I'd go back to try one of their specials. It's more consistent at brunch.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
