Nothing has changed. The Charmant is still a wonderful place to meet friends and have a good meal. They are the epitome of hospitality as they work incredibly hard to make us comfortable and safe so we can truly enjoy.

The restaurant is gorgeous, as is the hotel it's nestled in. Service was fantastic, and they have excellent Covid protocols in place. We were on a 17-day cross country road trip and this was the only place we ate inside (their roof deck was closed). But because they had such great protocols in place (masks, tables distanced, large open space), we felt comfortable. The food was very good. Not the most creative we have ever had, but expertly prepared and delicious. (Trout, steak frites, salads, and a delicious honey and goat cheese app.) We loved our server. And the open kitchen gave us that much more security as we could see the chefs at work wearing masks. We also recommend having a drink at the bar. The cocktails were fantastic, and the bartenders were masked and keeping a distance, and super friendly. Huge open space that made us comfortable.

The dinning room was picturesque, the food was very good, albeit very limited. The A/C was not working to adequately cool the dining room, although it was very hot out. All in all, a return visit is in the plans!

Our dinner was very nice--ordered two entrees and had to take half home, so should have shared one.
Breakfast--great potatoes, but the omelette had way too many onions, and I even like onions.
All the staff was was very nice. Beautiful place!

This was our first time dining in since Shelter in Place went into effect. The staff were all wearing masks, as were we, but we did not see any other patrons in masks. Hand sanitizer was at the host stand for all to use.

Our prior last dine in experience was at this restaurant in March, we love this place and frequent it for special occasions; birthdays, anniversary, and Father's Day.

I would recommend requiring all guests to wear masks. I would also recommend having the front door staffed so only one person is opening it.

Excellent meal- we had dinner of salmon and half-chicken entrees. Also green goddess salad was terrific as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Cassie was our server and she was very personable and quite efficient. Wine list was very expansive and reasonably priced as well. Do yourself a favor next time you dine in La Crosse and judge for yourself.

stopped in for Brunch. As it was my first time there, I had asked for some recommendations. Our server Cassie went through the highlights of a few of the dishes we were considering. But one thing she highly suggested was a side order of the bacon, and was she right on the mark with that one! Try it , it's delicious!

We look forward to coming back. If you do stop in, ask for Cassie, she's an amazing server!

What a wonderful Monday evening out! Not knowing what to expect on an atypical dining night we found the place with a fair amount of folks inside. We were seated immediately with drinks ordered promptly. Before our entree decisions we tried the cheese sampler which was varied and spectacular. Eventually my wife settled on the Surf And Turf with onion soup while I went with something I don't normally order in a restaurant, the Schnitzel.
The main dishes did not take long to arrive and everything was delicious. So much flavor all around and filling too. Granted menu prices are a bit high but we knew that going in. Also a Monday night in February is not the best time to enjoy outdoor scenery through the near-floor to ceiling windows but that's on us. Compliments to the staff and chef. We loved it.

Oh my goodness I LOVED this restaurant! First off, the ambiance and setting was just so beautiful and comfortable. The food was INCREDIBLE. Wow everything I had was so good, I recommend the Cuban sandwich (the fries that come with it are perfect) and the Mac and cheese! Ugh easily some of the best food I’ve had. What impressed me most besides the food is the service! Not only were the hostesses super kind, but our server Cassie was the BEST!!! She was so sweet, made us feel very welcome, was honest about her opinions about the food, and remembered us whenever we came into the restaurant (which was several times during our stay in La Crosse)!

Hope to be back soon, The Charmant! :)

Lobster was overcooked and VERY fishy tasting. Our waiter asked us after each meal course how it was, except for the main course with the lobster. Other meal courses were not as described.

Menu was hit and miss. Could have used more nonbeef items. That said short rib was amazing. Popcorn shrimp was tasty but the popcorn, guac and grilled shrimp do not really go together. Service was attentive but needed more training.

Would go back.
