Service and surroundings were above average. The menu hasn’t changed for a long time and there were no specials so I wonder if they do not currently have an executive chef. However the chicken roulade, wedge salad and chicken liver mousse were very good. The gnocchi were ok but seemed like they were made a while ago and were warmed up. The lemon cream brûlée was delicious and nicely decorated. Cocktails were very good, bartender knows what they are doing.
The burger I had was way way too salty. It was a real surprise since it looked it was cooked from fresh meat. Mt wife's was med well to well done, we asked for medium.
It's a beautiful place but man I was disappointed with my experience.
Oh it was one or two of the best greyhounds I've had in a very long time.
We enjoyed our Brunch and the service and atmosphere were exceptional. A jewel for the La Crosse area.
We were there for my husband’s birthday and they had a handwritten birthday card on the table for him! The food was outstanding and I cannot wait to go there again!!
Second time here. So delicious, great service and ambiance. We decided to try breakfast tomorrow!
Fresh and inventive, although limited menu choices beautifully plated. Experienced and knowledgeable wait staff provided friendly and professional service. Drinks from the bar were made with house-made infusions that we’re excellent. A great spot for a romantic dinner or meeting up with friends. Historic hotel/restaurant is across the street from a park riverwalk for after dinner stroll. Highly recommend
Great service and food
We were in the neighborhood and decided to have brunch at our favorite restaurant!
Stated with a Bloody Mary & chaser and freshly squeezed Grapefruit juice. Enjoy the fresh lox and delicious chicken and waffle entrée.
A wonderful day !
Server and overall service was A+ fantastic. The menu was limited and the food was extremely salty. Desert was great.
I've been to The Charmant several times. The food is above average, but the venue is overly pretentious for the quality and I always wind up thinking they missed the mark. I didn't expect to leave the restaurant hungry after ordering eggs Benedict at brunch, but did. The noise level was 'shout at each other' level when we were there, but they were crowded. No one in my party was overly impressed with the bread or circuses.
Thank you for taking a moment to review your dining experience with us. I do apologize about the noise levels, and that you weren't satisfied with your meal. We will be presenting a new brunch menu within a few weeks, so I hope that you can come back in and give it a try! I do hope that the rest of the birthday celebration was a smashing success.
The Charmant is a wonderful place to dine out. We went there for our wedding anniversary and the service was wonderful, even giving us a little treat for our special occasion. We each ordered something different and shared the 4 brunch entrees and it was all melt in your mouth deliciousness. I love to cook and now have some new inspiration for my recipes at home. I would highly recommend this place and will definitely be back for more.
Love the atmosphere and the food is amazing. Great service too!
The food & service were great!
We had a very nice brunch at the Charmant. The traces of the old candy factory are indeed charming.
The mimosas were the best we have ever had.
Loved the food, drinks, and ambiance. Will definitely be going back.
Our second time eating here. Loved it. Will be back. Service and food were outstanding.
Great food, great service. Wonderful for our Anniversary!
Tasty breakfast in a delightful setting and excellent coffee!
Meal was way too expensive for a small steak and large order of fries. Wife had salmon served on a slice of watermelon? the salmon was under cooked and was sent back for additional cooking. The only good thing about the meal was our waitress she was great.
Croque Madame is the way to go for brunch!
Great as always . . . One of our favorite places for breakfast when in the Lacrosse area.
Great food and cocktails
Our food was good and our waitress was very accommodating as we were not in a rush to eat. Three of us ordered white zinfandel wine and there was none. I did wish they had a little more choices on the lunch menu. Overall though we were pleased and hop to come back again.
Traveling from Chicago to Minneapolis. Great hotel and restaurant.
Service and ambiance was great! Beautiful space. Food was underwhelming, cold, and sad. Im hoping it was just an off night.
Great food, served hot, large portions for price! Being 2 chefs it was nice to actually be able to enjoy a meal and be served by competent servers with great cooks who really did the job. Plates were neat and clean, clean presentation. We would definitely go back. Wonderful cheese cake.
The restaurant has a good vibe, somewhat rustic, but upscale. There is a lovely view of the river. The service was excellent. We made a reservation and had to wait, maybe 2 mintues for a table. We started with the cheese curds and deviled eggs and both were very good. My husband had a steak; really flavorful. My only negative was that the menu was very limited; about six appetizers and six entrees. I am not sure if this was covid related or just how they run things; if you are in La Crosse, I would recommend this place
We loved our visit to the Charmant and had delicious steaks done to perfection. Our waiter Josh was very attentive and fun and we enjoyed him very much!
They need to staff up their server staff, or cross train more, there was lots of other staff around but only one server for the entire evening for all the tables, other staff tried to cover but with a lack of communication some things were lost.

As many restaurants start the process of opening back up to full capacity, we will move forward with the best service and product in mind. We appreciate your understanding, and we hope to welcome you back soon!
The food was over cooked the poached eggs were cooked to the point of being hard boiled the fries that came with my meal were over cooked as well I could have used them as throwing darts and assassinated the table next to me the service was slow I saw the manager more time serving food and drinks more then my server and when she was there it was like she couldn't be bothered and was completely unprofessional as a results u will not be back clearly standards like properly cooked food do not exist there
Dear ZackaryK, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. I would like to extend my most sincere apology about your visit. I can assure you that Saturday's brunch service is absolutely not our standard. I have extended a full refund for your visit, and I hope that you are willing to try us again. We would be delighted to offer you the true Charmant experience.
The food, the service, the value, was excellent. Even the wine prices were reasonable! I highly recommend a visit.
Celebrating a birthday , and enjoyed bloody Marys and mimosas. The breakfast entrées were delicious and great service. It always feels like home.
Our brunch was delicious, our server was wonderful, and the view from our outdoor table was beautiful :).
Wonderful atmosphere, great staff who seem happy to be there . Food was excellent. Not anything to say other then a great experience as always .
The food was great and the service was top notch. It is nice to look out over the park and the river. I'll be back.
The Charmant's lovely atmosphere makes every outing an amazing experience.
Such a beautiful ambiance, great service and quality cuisine. Brunch , mimosas, cappuccino and Bloody Mary were delicious.
