This was our first visit to the Museum Cafe and we were delighted with the entire experience. We went for Sunday brunch. The staff was polite and attentive without hovering. The food was fabulous and reasonably priced. We can’t figure out why we haven’t gone before now and plan to return to try dinner soon.

The food was good but nothing has changed in the years we have been coming for Sunday brunch. The waiter was friendly but we had to flag him down when we needed something. He didn't remove a single dirty plate including bringing me more coffee in a new cup (after I asked for a refill) but didn't remove the old cup and brought a second small pitcher of cream. The table was not very big so we had to start stacking our dishes. The table was near the bar where the servers came in and out of the kitchen and bar area and kept bumping into my friend's chair every time they walked by.

This was our 3rd visit. Always excellent food, great service (this time server "forgot" us a couple of times). Try the fried green tomatoes, not like my Mother used to make, but she loves these as much as we do. Fabulous wine menu. Sunday brunch menu is the best, but very busy.

As always the experience was stellar. From the dining room attendant, to the server, to the host, the service was excellent. The staff is welcoming and attentive. No detail is too small. Our brunch orders were well prepared and as described on the menu. Just let them know what type of experience you desire and they will deliver.

Very good food as always. I tried the elk, which was very nice and cooked well. My fiancé had the salmon and it had a great sauce and texture. We split a caesar salad and shared a cream brûlée for dessert. Nice time, it was very empty as we dined early, but the service was great and nice atmosphere.

Always good food, usually top wait staff. Our waitress was a little absent Friday 5/4, but that is very unusual. The Hostess/Owner is a great lady, and always makes it over to make sure we had a good experience. Have been going to Museum Cafe for about 20 years and will continue!

Celebrated my husband's 60th birthday here. The food is outstanding and so is the service. We would like a larger table next time as the tables for two are a little cramped. We highly recommend this restaurant and plan to go back more often.

The menu had a great variety. I had quail medallions and my husband had elk. The elk was very tender. The sides were tasty and different. We went early and it was quiet and had the waiter to ourselves, later on it got busy and was harder to hear. The desert Creme Brûlée was totally unique service in a dual spoon. Just enough to taste and enjoy. It was close to the Civic center so we didn’t have to park twice.

I always enjoy brunch at the museum cafe'. The food is good, but the service could be a little better. I always feel like the servers disappear for long periods of time. Also, tra a fuzzy fruit, it is my favorite brunch drink!

This is always are go to place when we have an event at the Civic Center. There are choices to please everyone. I had the house salad with salmon tonight, but I love all of their vegetarian options. I also like their wine list. It has a great range of offerings with many good affordable options. While we were there for dinner, I also recommend it for lunch and especially Sunday brunch.

On the evening of our dinner out to the Museum Cafe, almost everything was excellent. The wine, the service, and especially the food. The only thing that bothered me is that the hostess paced back and forth past our table. It was a slow night, so maybe she was bored...I don't know, but if she hadn't have done that, it would have been a perfect evening.

My daughters, a friend, and I came for Easter Brunch after church. The pace was not frenetic but comfortable. We love the Museum Cafe. It's THE perfect place for a (very) nice meal for great food and great conversation. Our server, William, was attentive without being overbearing. Just the right service as we've come to expect at the Cafe. Thank you for a lovely Easter.

Overall was good. Was there for Easter. Our server was nice; could tell he has worked there for a while. The server assistant came by with muffins and said this is blueberry and I don’t know what the other one is. Probably not the best thing to say...
Took about 30 minutes for food which I understand it’s Easter but the place was maybe half full. And there were three tables around us that got food before us and they sat down after us! I can’t imagine what would happen if the restaurant was actually busy.
The hostess was very rude. She gave me a look when I walked in and never smiled!!!
Would maybe return on a normal day to see if today was just an off day.
The food was very good though!!! This would be the main reason to come back.

At the time of our meal (Saturday @ 2:30 PM) the place was almost empty but the service was scarce. We had been here before, in multiple occasions, this time felt like Meh! We’ll be back to see if this is the new normal or this one time was an outlier.
