Dinner before theater tonight which looked forward to the new menu at Navarre. We were quickly sat, then waited for a while before being greeted by our server. Ordered wine since we had plenty of time to pick a suitable bottle - Navarre has a good wine list. Tried the new grilled octopus and squid appetizer and scallops - both tasted very good but the fish was over cooked in both dishes. Had to ask for bread after receiving the appetizers - this is normally delivered right after greeting and water is delivered to the table. I tried the lobster pot pie for dinner which ok, did not have a creamy sauce and small lobster tail was crammed into the cup instead of being cut into pieces and cooked with veggies and sauce - this made it awkward to cut and eat (crust was tasty if not a bit over cooked). I do not recommend this dish as overpriced and did not meet my taste expectations. My wife had the shrimp arriabbiata pasta which she described as excellent with exception the shrimp was over cooked like our appetizers. Overcooked fish was a shock for us at Cafe Navarre as they have always had perfect fish dishes. Server was not attentive, we had to ask for everything, including a new glass of water as after drinking 1/3 of my initial glass I noted the glass was very dirty with caked on food or drink (not a pleasant experience); server simply took the glass and returned with a new one, no apology or explanation which is unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber (I can understand this happening, but expect an apology an a minimum). We love Cafe Navarre, but we were a bit disappointed with this experience. More

Most recently, my wife, daughter, and I dined there in mid January. It was our second time there in the past three months. I was stuck right off the bat that our waitress remembered our preferences for appetizers even though it was a month since our last visit. We had a great Italian meal - again. This is GREAT Italian food! The "bruschetta alla calabrese" and the calamari were outstanding and will always be the way we start our meals there. Excellent was how my wife summed up her meal of vitello involtini. My daughter insists on having the lobster ravioli on each visit - and looks forward to the next time there. My main course was a veal special which was great. We will be visiting Carmela's on all of our visits to Notre Dame. This is Italian! More

Arrived a few minutes late but we were seated promptly. Our waiter for the evening was at our table with water and asked if we would like fresh warm bread within a minute of being seated. My wife and I shared an excellent bottle of wine at a very reasonable price. We both enjoyed salads and a great main course. The best part was that we enjoyed our meal at a nice pace but still managed to be out of the restaurant in a little over an hour. Great Service, Great Atmosphere, and Reasonable Prices. More

My husband and I went for our Anniversary. I ordered the Oscar Tilapia and a glass of Rosa Stella Moscsoto which both were excellent! My husband ordered fish and chips. He said the fish was very good but the fries were cold and burnt and he got a lot of tiny crunchy pieces. We tried to get the attention of our server so he could order the garlic mashed potatoes but by the time she came by again he was already done with his fish. That is why I gave a 4 star. More

As always, Leslie and Diane, the two hostesses were very accommodating, especially when our reservation went from four people to five people, and then quickly back to four people because of one person's cancellation because of sudden illness. Later during our visit, these two hostesses were terribly patient, when a party of 30-40 adults, making a last--minute reservation -- and mostly grade school age children were seated on the upper level, and suddenly decided that they preferred to dine in Rohr's Tavern, another dining option in The Morris Inn. And, suddenly got up and walked out. Ugh. There is an excellent baby kale salad on the brunch menu, which is a favorite of vegetarians. However, lately, more mature kale leaves are ending up in this salad, without their long stems being removed. Making for a less attractive salad. We continue to hope that the servers and bus people could be trained not to remove plates until all guests have completed their meals. A sign of an excellent fine dining restaurant. More
