We chose the hotel restaurant for our first night stay at the Charmant Hotel. The waiter was very business like. I prefer someone who is informative, but more relaxed. I also would like to have been attended to more. The food was was not only good, but well thought out. the brussel sprouts were excellent. the figs made it happen. Something new for us. The bartenders were quite helpful, and relaxing.

The staff were very welcoming and the food was good. We were celebrating our anniversary at the hotel and had dinner there on Friday night. We ordered drinks appetizer salad and entree. We were disappointed when they served everything at once!! We couldnt eat fast enough and everything got cold. Also there was a party in the parlour and we could not get coffee with our dessert on Saturday night. We still love the charmant and will definitely go back. Just a little disappointed this time because we wanted to celebrate and savor our meal

This was my first time dining at The Charmant. My friends and I went out for brunch. The first thing I noticed was the elegant and upscale feel of the restaurant. I loved the vibe and decor (the mix of old and new).

Overall, the food we ordered was phenomenal. I like how you can see the chefs cooking your food in the open. It is especially comforting to see how your food is being handled now more than ever. I ordered the Baked Egg Shakshuka which was phenomenal. Almost like a bruschetta but for breakfast! My friend got the Cróque Madame Tartine and loved it! Similar to an eggs Benedict but brioche bread replacing the traditional English muffin and no Hollandaise sauce. We also ordered country potatoes which were arguably the best breakfast potatoes I have ever had.

COVID-19 procedures were good. Although you could tell they tried to space out seating, they failed to acknowledge the back-to-back seating of booths. The party behind us was within arms reach.

Our server was good. The supervisors delivered the food to our table and checked in on us. It’s always good to see a management team that is interacting with guests first-hand.

The prices of the food were fair. I was a little shocked to see the prices of the beverages when our bill came out, especially because prices were not listed on the menu. If I knew ahead of time that my lemonade (which tasted a little off, and came in a small cup) would cost $5 I certainly would not have ordered one. My friend ordered an iced coffee with vanilla that came out to be $7. Not worth the price.

Will definitely be back! So happy we decided to dine here to catch up with friends while we were in town!

Dear reneel, Thank you for reviewing your dining experience. My apologies that the visit did not meet your expectations. I will be addressing the bar service with my team. I am also sorry that you did not enjoy your table. In all transparency, it gets requested often for special occasions, which is why it was selected for you. However, I can absolutely understand if it did not meet the ambiance you were looking for. I am delighted however that you enjoyed the remainder of your stay!

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!
