Amazing food, great service and beautiful setting for a dinner.
God experience at Cafe Navarre for our 25th anniversary dinner. We plan to return again this winter and look forward to patio dining net summer.
We had an incredible experience at Cafe Navarre. Everything from the drinks to dessert was fantastic. Highly recommend.
Great food and excellent service. Nice ambiance.
The highlight of the meal was our server, Jenny, she was wonderful. Attentive but not too attentive. We got seated right away in a booth which was nice given the whole Covid thing. Drinks were solid, caesar salad was excellent. I got the sirloin with chimmichuri sauce which was very good, perfectly done medium rare. I was waffling between that and the salmon, will get the salmon next time. My wife just got the caesar and french onion soup which she really enjoyed. The bread was very good as well. Overall, it was a very good dinner and within walking distance of our wonderful B&B The Oliver Inn. If you ever get a chance to go there, go. Very cool old house/mansion and Alice's breakfasts are the best.
Three adults and three beautifully behaved dogs. Our outdoor seating was perfect.(Perfect weather) Nicely spaced from others. Feel bad I can't remember our waitress' name. She was flawless. Attentive, but not too much. Thoughtful, helpful. A tall young woman with dark hair and a cute pink mask. We ordered all of the small plates to share except the risotto and hummus. All flavored and cooked beautifully. Nice bottle of Pinot Grigio. Thank you for making our first in restaurant experience since March a lovely one.
Great food and wine
Excellent food and prep and presentation. Waitress was outstanding and very personable and attentive.
Very good food. Relaxing atmosphere. Fining dining at its best.
Disappointed the menu was different from on line menu & wine pour was very small. Service was slow but food was good.
We apologize for the discrepancies between the online menu and the menu at our restaurant. We try our best to keep our online menu current and up to date. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal. We hope to see you again soon.
Hands down- one of the classist places to dine in South Bend. Wonderful foods, delightful atmosphere, and incredible views in the antique building. We will be back!
Thank you for much for your review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your date night with us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Very nice and comfortable atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Birthday dinner and had wonderful seafood meals. Drinks/cocktails were very good as well. Complimentary dessert was a nice surprise. Thanks and we will be back soon!
Great Bar Service and recommendations. Dinner service was good not great. Food was excellent. Recommend the Octopus appetizer.
What a find! We wanted a nice meal the evening before a Notre Dame football game and Cafe Navarre was amazing. It's a "casual elegant" atmosphere and the food was impressive. I'd come back for the risotto alone!
Service was exceptional
Cesar was a fantastic server! He was so personable and made excellent recommendations! The food was absolutely incredible! Great ambiance -- perfect way to start a quick getaway from all the craziness! We will definitely be back!!!
Excellent food all around
Thank you! We hope to see you soon!
We made an online reservation.. we were seated right away.. the server was excellent and very knowledgeable when asking about wine and the menu.. she showed up always at the right moment... food was excellent... prepared to our taste... never felt rushed... One of our best experiences eating out since Covid started ..
Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear you had a great dining experience with us. We hope to see you again soon!
A bit disappointed that the server served us coconut ice cream for dessert that had clearly been sitting somewhere warm for quite some time. Wont be ordering that again.
We are sorry that your dessert was melted when it arrived at the table. This is not up to our standards and we apologize for missing this on your visit. Our sincerest apologies.
Another great experience!! Every dish was outstanding! Highly recommend.
Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your evening with us. Cheers!
We were seated upstairs, which was fine but for others it may not be. We were early so it was nice and quiet. Service was great and food was wonderful! Striped bass had a nice crusty top. I had the wedge salad which wasn’t really a wedge but it was tasty without the blue cheese.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your evening with us! The striped bass is one of our favorites. We hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful venue. Fabulous service (Zach is a great waiter!). Great food (amazing mushroom soup). We were given free glasses of champagne and a free desert in recognition of our anniversary. Highly recommend Cafe Navarre

The best dining experience that my husband and I have had to date. Phenomenal service, food and drink. Caesar was very attentive to all our needs and the ambiance was perfect. We will definitely be back to enjoy this venue again.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us! We look forward to your next visit!
This meal was not the typical quality meal that we have experienced in the past at Cafe Navarre. My steak was cold and relatively flavorless except for the hot sauce decorating the plate. The lettuce in the salad had few greens and mostly the heart of the head. Service was excellent but overall very disappointed in the meal.
We are so sorry to hear about your latest experience with us. We strive to serve excellent food and we clearly missed the mark during your visit. Our management team is addressing the issues you have brought up. Our sincerest apologies.
The wedge salad, mushroom soup and crab cake were outstanding. My husband thought the pork chop a little chewy, but tasty.
Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear that you and your husband enjoyed your meal with us! Cheers!
Nobody in the area can cook like Chris at Cafe navarre! We devoured the BOLOGNESE and Uni butter crispy skin seafood. And that Navarre salad is dynamite. I also just think the servers are on it in such a low key way. I love this place.
Thank you, Julia! We will pass your compliments on to Chef Chris! We look forward to your next visit!
Excellent food. Everything is always perfect! Love this place!
Thank you, Amanda! We look forward to your next visit!
The food and cocktails at Cafe Navarre never disappoint. I loved the Care Navarre salad and mushroom soup. The tequila mockingbird cocktail was delicious as well.
We love the Tequila Mockingbird, too! Thank you for your review. We look forward to your next visit!
What a great experience. The food was amazing. The staff was very attentive and excelled! We are definitely going to go back again.
Thank you, Christina! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us! We look forward to your next visit!
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!
Thank you! We are so happy to hear this. We look forward to your next visit!
