We had dinner at Cafe Navarre on New Year’s Eve to celebrate our anniversary, which I shared on the Open Table reservation form. No mention of it at all by the hostess or wait staff, and we were rushed through our dinner. The entrees were brought out while we still had our salad and soup. The waitress said something about needing to get our entrees in before a large party that came in after us, but they hadn’t even ordered yet. The food was quite good, but our overall experience was disappointing.

The food was great. Wine and drink variety was acceptable, maybe a few more high quality French wines and cognac. The real issue is price., everything is a la carte. Paying upper $30-$40 for an entree that does not include salad or vegetable selection in this area is pricy. I paid $148.00 for a two person meal. That is what I would expect to pay in a top Chicago restaurant, not South Bend, In.

Food was exceptional. Service was Average.
It was our Anniversary and When I booked the reservation it was noted. However the restaurant never acknowledged it at all.
Very Dissapointing!

Great place. Been there several times. First time upstsirs. We had a party of seven and we sat upstairs in a semi-private room. It did not have quite as happening vibe as the main level but was very nice. Service was very attentive. Wine wad fairly priced. Food was great. Best place in South Bend for fine dining.

I'm worried that the ownership is getting comfortable with their place in town as the quality continues to decrease year after year. My most recent visit the lettuce was wilted but served anyways and two of our party had their steaks over done while one had it underdone. Their dessert options are also no longer special or unique (bring back the flourless chocolate cake!). The whole thing is becoming rote and stale and the food quality over my last several visits has been diminished. Bring back the upscale dining and feel.

Everyone from our server, to the kitchen, to he manager was on our side as we had two folks with celiac disease and one with a shellfish allergy. They all worked together to help make our experience tasty and safe.

The soups were amazing and the beet salad was very good. The entrees were a little salty, but highly flavorful. We loved the ambience and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back.
