Excellent atmosphere, food and see. It is a small place, but that makes it so unique and comfortable. Everything was great. One of our favorite restaurants in Madison!

My husband, a friend and I loved our brunch at La Kitchenette. The food was excellent and interesting, our server took great care of us and was warm and personable. We all said we'd love to come back for another brunch, or to try another meal.

We loved this place. So cozy! The woman who waited on us was super sweet. She had the whole space to serve and was amazing. Desert was the best! I can't wait to return to try the crepes and I've heard brunch is fantastic.

Fantastically delicious and approachable french cuisine. And the ambiance makes you feel like you're in a true Parisian restaurant. I wish I could give this place 6 stars because the food was that good. Highly recommend the special meatball dish from Belgium if its still available! Bravo!

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here. Service was impeccable. The savory crepe with potato and bacon was delicious and not too heavy. The lavendar creme brulee was so smooth, with a perfect caramelized crunch shell.

It was a perfect dinner even got a French waiter :-)
Crepes are nice and that is the second time that I almost made my own. A honey crepe for dessert is my favorite.

Very good, authentic French restaurant with a variety of gluten-free options, including crepes. Good service, and the food was excellent. It is a small space, so it does get loud when it fills up.

We had a dinner for 2 that included 2 entres, 2 desserts and a bottle wine. All of the dishes paired well with each other, the ambieance was authentic, and our server had a fun vibe as well. I eat lunch here often, snd will continue to return for the high quality ingredients and tasty dishes that priced very fairly. My favorite French restaurant in Madison!

We had been to La Kitchenette for brunch but his was our first time there for dinner. We brought a very particular guest from Chicago and even he was impressed, stating "maybe there is hope for Madison yet." Our waiter, Ethan, was friendly, fun, attentive, and helpful and did not understate his recommendations. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious; deviled eggs, tartine mantagnarde, boeuf bourguignon, and especially the specials that night; tomato rosemary tart, duck, and salted caramel rice pudding. The only less than excellent review is for the cleanliness of the place in general. It is a very small, intimate space and always very busy so I understand that cleaning may not be on the top of the to-do list. It is clean enough in the seating area but I think a routine deep clean would be helpful in the one bathroom.
