I have been here several times and have never had a bad meal or service. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion or for dinner before a Musical or any event at the Civic Center Music Hall!

Always enjoy the Museum Cafe, especially before a performance at the Civic Center. An elegant dinner and a show make for a fun evening.

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.

Sure wish there would be something new on the Sunday brunch menu. The meal was good. I like the melon and pineapple slices better than the finely chopped version they used to serve. Had to ask for the muffins, which were dry and overcooked and the butter we requested never arrived. Waiter was friendly but hard to find when we needed something. My friend ordered the croissant club, which was supposed to include avocado. We had to request it because it was missing from the sandwich.

Exceptional food and service! Great location near theatre and museum. Glass windows allow for people watching, but quiet enough inside for private conversation. Lovely place for friends to gather or to bring a guest to enjoy a good meal.

This was our first experience at the Art Museum Cafe and it was great! I had to mark 4/5 stars for food only because my elk was overdone, but still excellent (ordered medium rare, got medium). My wife got the seafood macaroni and cheese which was also really good. I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for good food in a great setting, and we will absolutely return again!

My six-year-old great-niece, Kate, and I ate dinner at the Museum Café before attending Finding Neverland at the Civic Center. I picked the Museum Café because it is so convenient to the Civic Center and because so many other downtown spots are currently compromised by all the current construction. Still, I wasn't sure how well they would accommodate a 6-year-old. I have to say our experience exceeded my expectations. They had a children's menu that included a PB&J with lots of fruit, which made Kate happy. Plus, she loved the pre-dinner roll. I, on the other hand, could have a nice glass of wine and the restaurant's standout Lobster Bisque. Something for everyone, including sharing the ice cream with cookie dessert, which also had lots of fruit. Our server and the hostess went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. I won't hesitate to book the Museum Café when Kate and I attend future events.

Overall it was a great dining experience. Some of the food could be hotter and our drink glasses were empty for a while at some points. This is a pet peeves of mine. The waitress and staff were very helpful and friendly. Ambiance, was nice not too loud, comfortable atmosphere. They had some interesting dessert options.

We had the crab cake, mussels and pomme frites, duck breast, and elk loin. The elk loin was amazingly tender and the Demi glace was delicious. Chorizo with mussels we're yummy. The remoulade on the crab cakes we're great. The duck breast could be hotter and the skin crispier. Creme brulee had a soft crackle, but delicious custard.

We arrived for a belated Valentines celebration. A yearly special time just for our small family. After being immediately seated, the staff served ice cold water and fresh baked rolls with ramekins filled with fresh butter. We ordered the escargot and mussels as our first course, and were very impressed by the unique style used to prepare and serve each appetizer. While the presentation was excellent, they tasted even better, and the portions of the escargot was larger than I have ever experienced.

We ordered the lobster bisque-a must and the tomato caprese as a second course, both were outstanding. Then on to the duck, elk, and lamb shank. While the duck and elk were somewhat traditional in preparation, they possessed their own unique flair. The lamb was something else intirely. Presented similarly to that I enjoyed in Armenia, there served in a type of saffron and ginger stew. The Museum Cafe served a very well spiced tomato based sauce. An excellent change from the typical lamb with mint or berry sauce.

To finish we enjoyed cheesecake with wild cherries, and a lemon crumb cake with strawberries folded into the batter twinned with fresh berries on the top. Both deserts were fabulous.

The service was beyond excellent, on par with a five star restaurant. While the prices were what you would expect from this type of setting, the portions were large with sides included with entrée selection.

We will be back, maybe to try the brunch on the weekend.

Waitress had no idea what the items were on the prix fixed menu for Valentines Day. She said the Wild Boar was steak/beef. And when we said, “isn’t boat like wild pig?” She admitted she had no idea. We ordered two different kinds of wine by the glass but they were both the same. Really really poor training of staff. We had no idea it was going to be an extremely limited menu otherwise we wouldn’t have gone. Everything seemed very pre-made. Would not go back.

We usually go about once a month but was very disappointed this visit except with the server. Autumn was outstanding through our grumbles. We had to grab forks from another table, my napkin was stained, we had to ask for complimentary muffins, which were overcooked and dry, and then for butter, had to ask for warm syrup for waffles and the portion of cream cheese and lox for the bagels was very skimpy and certainly not worth $12. It would be nice to see something new on the brunch menu, which is when we visit this restaurant.
