By far, the best restaurant in South Bend! This was our 3rd visit to Cafe Navarre, and it was again outstanding. Will eat there every time we are in South Bend!
Excellent dinner, service and ambience. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening!
Always a treat. Service was stellar. Wish they would change their menu more often but always find something good.
The food was tremendous. They aren’t re-inventing the wheel here menu wise but everything was cooked to perfection, incredibly tasty and well balanced. The decor is tasteful and the tables spaced accordingly for the COVID era. Also have some outdoor tables which were reserved already. Highly suggest the crab cake if it’s offered and the filet mignon cooked to medium rare perfection. The mushroom soup is also tremendous. There was small hiccup during the service but management was extremely professional and handled it well. Above and beyond. I will definitely be back when I return to SB and recommend going to everyone. Oh and the Bartender made an excellent Manhattan as well....always a plus!!!
Would have appreciated the option to sit outdoors when making reservation but the Food and service were great
El restaurante tiene un ambiente muy agradable. El ambiente es un poco más elegante q muchos de la zona. El menú es variado y muy bueno. La comida deliciosa y el servicio fantástico.

Our favorite place in South Bend for fresh ingredients and exquisite combination of flavors.
We loved our food. Everything was delicious. The stAff was super friendly and accommodating. Very clean and the ambiance was perfect. We will definitely be back every time we come to visit my son at school.
We had a lovely dinner for our anniversary.
We had a great time, enjoyed some amazing food- the scallops were AMAZING, and left very satisfied!
The staff also all signed a card and we received a free dessert and champagne to make it even more special!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and had a great time.
Cafe Navarre offers a great high-end experience in downtown South Bend. While we miss the beautiful indoor ambience, the well-spaced outdoor tables create a safe and elegant environment. Our server John offered great suggestions, for both food and drinks, and he was fun and attentive without being obtrusive. I enjoyed the Fjord Trout and my wife loved the Sea Bass entree. For you fans of key lime pie, be sure to save room for dessert. We love Cafe Navarre!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. When we were escorted to our table, there was an anniversary card on the table waiting for us. The menu was printed with Happy Anniversary, and we were also given complementary glasses of champagne. Our waiter was excellent - very friendly and very attentive. Our meals and dessert plates were delicious and beautifully plated. We would definitely come here again!
Thank you for celebrating such a special day with us! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your anniversary dinner! We look forward to your next visit. Happy Anniversary!
There was next to nobody in the dining room making it a very unusual experience. Waiter was terrific, food was above average with a down sized menus. Wine list needs a major overhaul.
We are sorry to hear that you had an unusual experience with us. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal! Unfortunately, we are only able to fill the restaurant to 75% capacity due to current state guidelines. We agree that a restaurant filled to capacity has a different feel! Thank you for your suggestions.
Went outside the box and tried the barbecue quail. All the food had a fantastic flavor.
We're so glad to hear that you tried and enjoyed the quail! Chef Chris's preparation is delicious. We hope to see you again soon!
My girlfriend and I had such an amazing anniversary dinner! The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and the little extras to make our night special were awesome! I will most definitely be dining at Cafe Navarre again in the future. I would probably make a special trip there just to have a slice of the lavender cheesecake... It was that good!
Thank you for sharing your special evening with us! We are so happy to hear that you and your girlfriend enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to your next visit! We have a slice of lavender cheesecake with your name on it!
Wonderful experience. We will be back!
Thank you! We look forward to your next visit!
They gave my husband a birthday card and dessert! Very nice staff.
Happy birthday to your husband! We hope to see you both again soon! Cheers!
