Always an excellent experience. The food is wonderful, portions are European sized so you don't leave feeling stuffed. You leave feeling satisfied and looking forward to your return.

The owner & staff are attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. It's a pleasure to spend an evening with them.

I usually dine here for my birthday in January as well as other times. This year they did not recognize my birthday, although I notated this in reservation :(

Food was very good but dessert 'crepes normande' was not good at all. Crepe was very tough and chewy....a disappointing end to dinner.

Waiter was good, but attitude could have been more caring.

The waiter was bordering on rude. We asked for a wine list and he said you have to buy a whole bottle so do you really want to see it? Acted like he was annoyed we were there. The food was good but was put off by the whole experience. Was not aware of the set menu. Would try once more maybe.

We had Christmas dinner here. They were serving a limited menu, so we did not get to try what we would have from the full menu (they did not mention the limited menu on OT or the restaurant's website). The food was very good, especially the cappuccino pie we shared! Service was outstanding. We will definitely have dinner here again.

In the 20n years I have been dining at the Addison Cafe, I have never been disappointed. 14 years ago we had our wedding dinner there, with 16 of us. They did a great job, as they did a couple nights ago for dinner with friends. The menu has not changed very much but the offerings are all consistently delicious, and it offers a good variety of choices. Wines by the glass are all very nice. The service is excellent. The setting is quiet and you can have a conversation without straining and screaming over loud noise! Great place to go if you really want to converse with your dining companions AND eat nice food.

Food was good, but service was somewhat lacking. My guest ordered a side salad and never received it. I asked for extra dressing, on the side, for my salad and the extra dressing was added to the salad and not put on the side.

We came on Thanksgiving - usually a difficult day for dining. Everything was perfect. There was plenty of food and it was terrific. Service was amazing. Atmosphere was pleasant and we could have lovely conversation. Despite it being a holiday, we never felt that the wait staff were rushing to turn the table. All around a great experience and we now have a new Thanksgiving tradition.

My wife and I are starting to use Café Addison for special occasions. Service is pleasant, food is wonderful. Dress is casual, but the décor, tables, and staff are not. I also have checked a couple items on the wine list against the pricing at the liquor stores. Very reasonable mark up.

Addison Cafe is wonderful. It is a quiet place where you can have a conversation, rather than have to shout over the crazy volume in the restaurant. I had prospective customers in from out of town. The menu let everyone have something they liked. The staff was attentive without hovering. It was a great evening for all.

We had a very relaxed three course, two and a half hour dinner. We started with a few drinks and then moved into dinner. The pacing of the meal was just right. All three courses were outstanding. My wife had spinach soup followed by the Seafood Cassolette. I had the smoked salmon and lamb chops. Our desserts were also very good. We have been here many times, and it never disappoints.

This was our first time in the restaurant. We had been given a gift certificate by a family member at Christmas and this was our first opportunity to use it. We were very pleased with everything! Busy, but pleasantly so...not a crazy, noisy crowd which is what we prefer. The food was excellent and the service prompt but not overly so. We definitely plan on retuning at some point in the near future!!
