This place! So cute, cozy, attentive and quick service, and one of the best omelets I’ve ever had. It was so good I immediately made another reservation to come back for dinner two days later. Can’t recommend it enough!

Everything was absolutely delicious, and they brought out the birthday girl's dessert with a candle on top. It was an exquisite experience!

Came for dinner and the food was excellent. Who knew an egg could be prepared so well? A traditional menu in a homey atmosphere. I look forward to trying out brunch!

This is a delightful little place! It was my first time there, a Sunday morning brunch with a friend. The server was funny and (mostly) attentive, the food was outstanding, and the whole "vibe" was fun, casual, and friendly. I will DEFINITELY be going back!!!

A great little find in the Madison area. A quaint location excellent for brunch or that secret little spot that you escape with your friends to have a conversation with the sense of a Paris cafe. Although not a large establishment the quaint sense of authenticity comes through in every dish. The service was excellent and thoughtful. Definitely a must try if you have not been there, and reservations are highly recommended given the limited seating during peak hours.

I have now been to La Kitchenette twice for brunch and it has become my favorite brunch location. The food is so flavorful and the setting cute and cozy. I can’t wait to make it there for dinner sometime.

Great, intimate French food. Excellent service. Cleaver decor. Good Value. Reminded us of a small Family restaurant you would find in France or Denmark.

This was a memorable meal! Outstanding and friendly service without being overbearing. The appetizers and meals were scrumptious with reasonable portion sizes. The restaurant is not fancy but is cozy. We will definitely return!

Always a pleasant experience. Only reason I gave less than 5 stars is it was VERY cold sitting near the windows. It was a very cold day and they might need to crank the heat a little higher on those days...

We both had crepes and a fresh mixed greens side salad with a light dressing. Topped it off with a glass of champagne. Perfect!
