Great romantic visit to Addison Café. While the crab cake special appetizer was just okay, everything else was outstanding. My wife had the SCassolette de Fruit de Mer, which is seafood in a fillo cup. I had the smoked salmon, which is a delicious and unique preparation, and the rack of lamb in a peppercorn sauce, which was cooked just perfect. We will definitely return.

Excellent food if you're a fan of French cuisine. The Savignon Blanc by the glass was also quite good. The four of us all had different entrees and we all thought they were very good.

I have been eating at the Addison Cafe for 20 years. It is always really good. It is a small restaurant, excellent food and service, and has an intimate atmosphere. You can have a conversation with the rest of your dinner party without screaming over a din of noise.

I was happy with the food, but the service was disappointing.
I was taking two friends to dinner, and my guest wanted to buy the wine.
When the bill arrived, I explained to the waiter how to divide the bill on
two credit cards. He charged my guest with the full meal and I was charged for the wine.
Since this was a treat for my guests, I had to explain the mistake and give him a check
to cover the mistake. Very disappointing.

We had not been to Addison Cafe in years since moving to McKinney. Based on how much we enjoyed it before we decided to treat our college age daughter and her roommate to dinner there. We hoped it would be as good as we remember and the Cafe did not disappoint. The wait staff did a wonderful job of making the girls feel welcome and special. Food was excellent and the dining area had good customer energy but not too loud. The overall experience met our expectations which were high given our history there and candidly the prices. We will be going back again but won’t wait years this time.

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.

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.
