It’s a cool place. Overall, they need to work on the presentation and attention to detail on the plates. The charcuterie platter look like my 5yo little niece put it together.
I also ordered mussels to share , which they were good, but we need it a bit more bread to soak into the sauce. I asked our friendly server for more bread, and they delivered just 3 little pieces of bread to share among my friends. Little details like that.

This new spot is A GEM. Gorgeous decor, riverside outdoor dining, French bistro vibe and a fun frenchy but Kushy menu. Grab a patio table by the River and try the house Vermouth on ice.

The food was okay. The music didn’t really fit the vibe and it was really low. They’re new to brunch, so I’d go again.

We love local spots to dine at and this one does not disappoint. From the greeting at the door, to the wait staff and on to the quality of food. All were excellent and made for an enjoyable evening.

Total mess!!! Received the wrong food order, drink never arrived, asked to move to a different table and they said no even though there were a lot tables opened... wanted to celebrate our wedding anniversary at a cool place and what a fiasco that was!

Great drink menu! Loved the presentation with the Parisian cocktail. Food was very tasty and filling. The mussels were so delicious I asked for extra bread to enjoy the delicious wine jus. For dessert the Key Lime pie was scrumptious. The crust has a pecan blend with the graham crackers. Super delicious.

Pick any complementary adjective, and that’s how I feel about Cafe Kush. The service was extremely attentive and friendly, the atmosphere was cool and comfortable, and the food and cocktails were absolutely outstanding. Best French onion soup in the city. Terrific steak Frites too!

I joined a few friends for lunch at Cafe Kush last week and was very happy with the whole experience. They had outdoor dining space (a priority for me), the service was attentive but not obnoxious, and the food was delicious and fairly priced. I devoured the French onion burger with truffle mayo and my friends both loved the chicken and waffles. I will definitely be back to try their happy hour and other menu options!

Funky place with open air seating by canal. Good menu choices, innovative options, try the Cuban frita with guava, savory plate, very good French onion soup and Croque Monsieur!

Second time and even better than the first. Had some family visiting from out of town and they absolutely loved it. Incredible options for vegans and non-vegans alike. This is one of my new regular spots - cannot recommend it enough.

I had their version of an old fashion that was delicious! For apps, we had the fried mushrooms and the black bean dip that were pretty good. The best part of the dining experience was my croque madame. The bechemel sauce was flavorful and binded the sandwich together. As always....their sauces to dip fries are absolutely the best! If you haven't tried the garlic sauce....you haven't lived yet. 😂🤣😍

Very nicely renovated 50's motel. The inside of the restaurant is a little jewel box, very pretty. We sat outside by the river, which was lovely. The entire staff is excellent - everyone was so nice and the service was great. The food and alcohol, however, were not. The homemade vermouth was less (as described) an aperitif, and tasted more like a Christmas drink full of cinnamon with a bare flavor of vermouth. Cabernet was very light and watery. They need a Malbec or strong red on the menu. Salad and tomato soup (overly creamy) were ordinary. Steak was tasty and cooked correctly, but au poivre sauce was bland and overloaded with salt. Vegan Jambalaya was also way over salted and not very tasty. The fries were very good. Because the place and staff are great, I will give it another try (will get a hamburger), but they've got to improve the food.

Another unique creation by Kush! I tried a few items on the menu and would order them a again. The drinks are on point and very creative presentations.

Service is on point, friendly and quick.

Ambiance - amazing decoration need a full day to see all the small hiding touches

Will be coming back for sure!!!

Cafe Kush is a cool concept but they have a few kinks they need to iron out. The lighting is way too bright, if they want to achieve a French bistro bar vibe I’d suggest making it dim. Also the staff was constantly checking in and either taking a glass or a plate, it was more of an interruption than helpful. The drinks were awesome and very creative and the truffle fries were a great snack. I’m sure once they get the groove of things it will be great.
