What a wonderful meal my friend and I had! I chose the pick 3 combo, which allowed me to sample a few different things. (I wanted to try them all)! The food was very fresh, appealing in presentation, and delicious! Jorge, our server, was great. Finally, I enjoyed trying the unique Olive Oil Cake, and I was NOT disappointed! I will be back!

Just perfect. Creamy tomato soup was served with drizzled basil oil. Our server was attentive and helpful. Great food with great presentation. We enjoyed all dishes.

We have treasured our past visits to Cafe Sebastienne and were eager to try it again after a lengthy hiatus. Unfortunately, our high hopes were not met by the new chef or the unsmiling servers during our Restaurant Week experience. It was painfully obvious that Chef Jennifer Maloney’s honest-yet-discerning palate no longer influences what comes out of the kitchen. Cafe Sebastienne, where is the heart—the love of good, real food?

Lovely hidden gem. Food was delicious; nice wine selection; interesting cocktail choices. Very attentive (but not cloying) servers. Ambiance is simply fabulous.

Chewy and fatty tenderloin that was over cooked in the Beef Wellington dish. Simply awful is all I can say about the food I had.

As always ambiance, especially inside, was great. Food this time was OK. Shrimps were over cooked. Service very good, although it took some time to take our order but place very busy. Waiter was great. My guest liked the decor and his chicken dish.
