Waiter was rude and inattentive. It went as far as asking for the drink order and abruptly walking away before anything could be said, and coming back minutes later. Soup was amazing, however steak had to be sent back as it was not cooked to order. Date night was truly ruined due to this experience. Waste of money.

We went to dinner there for a late Valentine's celebration.
We missed being able to sit in a booth for cozy effect, but it was ok.

Food and service was fantastic! I had made reservations and we were seated right by the kitchen which was not very classy as I had higher expectations for this type of restaurant as the divider did not drown out the noise. Definitely would go back but would request a better seating area.

Our server was unfriendly and detached until or meal was almost over and then he started joking with us probably to get a good tip. I had the duck a l'orange. I'm not well versed in duck dishes but wanted to try it. The server asked if I was all right with it being medium. Not knowing that you could cook duck differently I said yes. The breast was too raw inside to my liking. I had them take the breast pieces back and cook longer. I felt the wing and the leg were done to my liking. The breasts came back cooked more so I could eat it but it tasted very salty now. I also never tasted any orange flavor in the sauce. I would come back and try again though. My husband's chilian sea bass was good.

Went to Café Navarre for dinner the Friday of Junior Parents Weekend at Notre Dame. We started with 6 people, and had a late addition. They accommodated our change graciously and without any issues. We had a fantastic table upstairs with great views outside and of the lower floor of the restaurant. The servers were wonderful, and food and beverages were delivered at a great pace. Everyone raved about their meals--perfectly prepared! We ranged from vegetarian through pasta and seafood to meat and potatoes, and everything was expertly done. Great beer and wine selection, and the cocktails were also delicious. It was our 2nd time there, we'll definitely be back.

I had the Bison Filet with Lobster Rissotto and it was one of the best meals that I have ever had. The Bison was the Star.
The service was quick without feeling rushed.
I will eat here in the future, and recommend Cafe Navare to all.

First time at venue. Reminds me of Berghoff downtown Chicago with its dark wood decor and the waiters attire. Food was good especially pumpkin soup. Brought wife for Valentine Day outing. Expensive to hit often but nice for special occasions. Waiter was very attentive and had good stories.

There were four of us dining before going to the theater. We all ended up getting the same fish special and sharing an appetizer. The food was delicious and hands down the best dinner I’ve had in months. We will plan on returning with more friends.

I took a group of my son’s 6 friends out for dinner. We took advantage of the restaurant week menu which was superb! All of the entrees were perfectly cooked and the desserts were just fabulous!

Went for restaurant week, so good price for food. Otherwise I think this place is too pricey for the atmosphere you get. Not a good place to go and have a quiet conversation over a nice meal.
