I took my friend here for her birthday and it was such a lovely experience! Great food, great atmosphere, great company!
I took a friend to lunch and it was wonderful. We were greeting with a big smile and enthusiasm, had a wonderful and attentive server who happily explained the menu, and the food was top-notch. We had very creative open-faced French "sandwiches" with great and inventive ingredients and can't wait to return to try the rest of the menu. Good value, friendly and delicious!
Wonderful brunch. Creative but simple food. Outstanding service. Tiny restroom needs an upgrade.
Our second visit for brunch and we couldn't have been any happier with the food and ambiance. It is difficult to decide what to eat, to be honest, so we will likely keep returning until we exhaust the menu! Also their tea selection is delicious with a variety of unusual flavor combinations.
Really enjoyed Lunch started with Oeuf Mimosa Beautiful presentation Server was helpful and made great suggestions. The daily ice tea was great The Savory crepes and wrap were perfect and we took servers suggestion and split them. Really nice cafe ambiance
The food itself was great. We went on Tuesday, date night. The Date Night menu was limited in choices and did not include the more substantial dishes. For $45 we got four crepes and a bottle of red wine between us. I suppose that’s fair but it seemed overpriced for it all. I think I should have ordered simply from the regular menu and gotten the beef or poulet. My daughter and SIL did that and declared it their favorite restaurant in Madison.
I love La Kitchenette, especially for brunch and their wine tasting events. I am French and it’s wonderful to have a little French café/bistrot near my home. Staff is very friendly and service is prompt and courteous. The food is really good too (my personal brunch favorite is the Green Toast). It’s pretty small so be sure to book to avoid disappointment!
The people who run the restaurant are so friendly and really know what they're doing. The food is always incredible, and I love the smaller size of the place.
Enjoyed Dinner - First time to La Kitchenette and it couldn't have been any more enjoyable! Don't pass up getting the French Onion soup, the best I've ever had! Devilled eggs, so unique and delicious. If I had to give any positive feedback, more on ambiance than the food, it would be to add tea lights on the tables and play some vintage French music - simple yet noticeable touches. Will certainly come back to enjoy lunch or brunch. Darling establishment, not to be missed!!!
Always love La Kitchenette, especially for Tuesday date night where they have two entrees, two desserts and a bottle of wine for $45. It always has a quaint, French cafe vibe due to the small size and intimate setting. The staff is super friendly and very attentive. Overall, one of my favorite Madison spots!
La Kitchenette is a gem in Madison. Lovely intimate setting - just like you'd experience in France. Excellent, kind, friendly service. And of course, delicious food and wine. Make sure to check out their Tuesday night 'Date Night' prix fixe menu!
Always excellent food when we visit. Service is good with a few gaps when busy.
La Kitchenette is an intimate space that is friendly, homey, and at the same time sophisticated. The food is delicious, and the wine is always just right. I highly recommend La Kitchenette, especially if you are missing good French food.
The food is truly fantastic. I have had the same server twice, and he is really great! Very personable, keen on making sure you have a wonderful experience. As a word of advice, even if it seems like you don't need a reservation, book one anyway. They may turn you away without one.
Be sure and get the soy marinated hard boiled eggs. They are delicious!
Service is great, they explain the menu, the food is really good, and the prices are very reasonable. A great place!
Wonderful atmosphere, great staff, delicious high quality food. The coffee was excellent. The French toast was amazing. Potatoes and side salad were super high-quality. Great find!
Our go-to breakfast/lunch spot. We always have a terrific experience when Ethan is our server!
La Kitchenette never lets you down. This visit we brought Francophile houseguests and they loved the food as much as we did. Thank you!
Great first time here. Menu was more extensive than I anticipated. I’d made a reservation but it wasn’t required on the day we had lunch. Food and service were excellent. Can’t wait to return for brunch or dinner.
Excellent crafting of a space, very quaint and thoughtful, small but not oppressively so, cozily so, kind service and delicious food with quality ingredients
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!
Everything was amazing !!! Just a little small . But at the same time the size of the restraint makes it feel unique .
We felt fortunate to have discovered this amazing bistro. The food was fantastic, service personable and quick. We loved our first meal there so much we went back two days later. It has good vegetarian and gluten free options. I recommend it to anyone visiting Madison, and obviously to those who live there!
Great little place for date night (they have a Tuesday date night special, $45 for two entrees, two desserts, and a bottle of wine). Portions aren't huge but food is very good and the desserts are excellent. Been a few times, servers are always sweet and attentive, and service is fast. Doing Tuesday date night? Make reservations or show up right when they open at 6, it's a popular spot and it fills up fast.
Gluten free options on both the regular and the date night menu!
Charming, intimate, cozy atmosphere and great food.
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.
La Kitchenette never disappoints!
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.
Amazing brunch menu, fabulous staff!
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!
Exceptional meal, perfect for date night. Service was incredible, even with a full dining room. Can’t recommend this enough - just like being in Paris!
Always an all around great experience. Delicious food and good service.
Great food. Cute atmosphere
Second time here—excellent experience again. Feels authentic. Good service. Excellent food. Highly recommend this place!!
Everything is fantastic at this place. Only suggestion is to keep wine at a better temp.
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.
Nice portions and reasonable prices.
We will be back.
One of the best meals I've had in Madison, such a cute place with great service and gorgeous food.
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.
Unbelievably tasty food in a sweet cafe. Maybe a bit too pricy for some of the dishes.
