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
Thank you for celebrating such a special evening with us! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal. We hope to see you again soon. Happy Anniversary!
Food was burnt. Waiter was fairly rude. Prices were not great either
We are so sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience with us. We strive to give our guests exceptional food and service. We clearly missed the mark during your visit. Our sincerest apologies.

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!
Excellent dinner, service and ambience. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening!

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!
We celebrated our 49th anniversary enjoying a delicious meal eating outside with amazing attention to every detail. We had their signature mushroom soup, trout, and key lime pie. Each dish was perfectly prepared. Our waiter helped guide our choices of wine and food! Thank you Cafe Navarre for a perfect anniversary meal! Looking forward to our next visit!
We are so happy to hear that you had a delicious anniversary meal with us! Thank you for celebrating with us. We look forward to your next visit!
Always a treat. Service was stellar. Wish they would change their menu more often but always find something good.
Thank you for your review! We hope to see you again soon!
Great place for an elegant meal. Casual but upscale dining.
Thank you! We hope to see you again soon!
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!!!
Thank you for your kind review! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us. We love our mushroom soup, too! We look forward to seeing you next time you are in town!
Would have appreciated the option to sit outdoors when making reservation but the Food and service were great
Thank you for your feedback! We are happy that you enjoyed your meal with us!
