                    My wife and I have enjoyed several excellent dinners at La Kitchenette over the years, always receiving excellent food, responsive service and a great atmosphere. Yesterday, for the very first time, we had breakfast at La Kitchenette and are pleased to report that the food (although the selections are different than they are for dinner) is still of outstanding quality and taste, while the service and ambience preserve the efficiency and charm that we have always experience while having dinner at this outstanding local restaurant. We had the Epinard Ficelle and the French Toast and can heartily recommend both.

                    Great food at a reasonable price. Cute little restaurant in a house, only seats about 20 or so people. Only one server so service can be a bit slow, but she was very friendly and helpful.

                    I came here with my parents and everything was excellent! Simple fare done right. We had: *the salad- nice fresh lettuces, dressed just right, with varied textures from add ins of potatoes, prosciutto & croutons *the charcuterie plate- lots of variety- the meats were excellent, as was the accompanying bread and butter *the poulet- SO tender and flavorful *the beef- also exceptionally tender and flavorful *lavender creme brulee- creamy and almost fluffy, not too floral, with a satisfying crust of sugar Overall, friendly service, excellent food, at reasonable prices- definitely would recommend

                    This was one of the best meals I have had in Madison - I lived in France for 7 months and this meal transported me back to France. The quality of evey dish was outstanding, every bite was great and the waitress was incredible. The ambience truly added to the experience as well.

                    We were visiting our son and daughter-in-law. It was the first time that all of us dined at La Kitchenette and loved it. Nicole, the Server, was the nicest of people and helpful and friendly. The food was delicious. It was a relaxed and feel-good setting. We highly recommend.

                    Ethan was an AMAZING waiter. We really enjoyed our first visit to La Kitchenette and will definitely be back. It was one of the most chiq, eclectic dining experiences we've had in Madison. This was great for my wife's birthday, but would also be great for an anniversary also. Make sure to make a reservation, there's only 6-7 tables in the entire restaurant! The deviled eggs and Crème Brûlée were really good.

                    I went for Tuesday date night with my roommate. The deal was worth it. Had to make a reservation a month in advance but did not mind the wait at all. Our server was super nice and friendly and made us feel very welcome. Very personalized experience. It’s also such a pretty little place, food was amazing, would love to go again, highly recommend.

                    What a wonderful brunch. Can’t wait to come back for dinner. Ethan our server made this quaint place seem like we were dining in his personal home. Very good about explaining the menu and how things are prepared. Bravo!

                    Wonderful little gem on Williamson Street. How wonderful to have a French restaurant in Madison. The dining room is small so I would recommend making a reservation. The food was delightful as was our wonderful server. I had the duck confit special with the potatoes cooked in duck fat. The meat fell off the bone, but the skin was nice and crispy, heaven. They do not have cocktails, but they do have wine. We understand brunch is equally wonderful and we can't wait to try it. Bon Appetit.

                    The food was wonderful, as usual, and Ethan is the best waiter ever. Now the only question is when will you be open for breakfast/lunch on weekdays?
