    Food is fantastic. I was super happy with my breakfast until I tried my wife's, which was somehow even more delicious. Prices are pretty reasonable for a nicer breakfast. Definitely will be back.

    We mentioned how long we had been wanting to come to this place, how hard it was to get a reservation and that we were there for my daughter’s 20th birthday. Many places to I’ll bring out something nominal with a candle in it. Nothing nominal was provided, the waitress did, however, wish her a happy birthday at the end of the meal.

    La Kitchentette was recommended by friends whose wedding we attended in Madison--- wow, we loved it! Very cute and cozy and the food was amazing! We had the green French toast (very unique and delicious!) and the madam croque... we savored every bite. Our friends did not steer us wrong- we can't wait to go back when we visit Madison again!

    Such amazing food and surprisingly affordable. Probably the freshest salmon omelette I’ve ever had and my girlfriends’s Green French Toast was something I will order for myself in the future. (It is also immense; definitely needed a box.) The intimate, homey setting is very pleasant and the service personal and just attentive enough. Can’t wait to come back.

    We decided to check out the Tuesday Date Night special. It was amazing! Two entrees, bottle of wine, and two desserts. We got the rose wine, beef bourguinon, croq madame, lavender creme brulee, and lemon curd crepe. Absolutely delicious...just make sure to make reservations ahead of time!

    We dined there on a Wednesday night on the last evening of a business/vacation trip and we both felt that this was by far the best meal that we had in Madison over the course of 4 dinners. The restaurant is small, only 6-8 table depending upon size, but the staff managed timing of everyone's meals perfectly. It is quaint, and simple, but the staff is very friendly and did their best to accommodate everyone on a busy night. But most importantly, the food is amazing. Not a large menu, but everything that we ordered was delicious. We had the french onion soup to start, very tasty. At the recommendation of our hostess, we shared the Boeuf Bourguignon, Poulet A La Normande (a chicken leg cooked in cider and mustard), the Crepe Buquette which had spinach, goat cheese, honey, bacon, and roasted tomatoes, a lavender creme brulee for dessert, and of course french red wine. All of the dishes were absolutely delicious. Boeuf Bourguignon gravy is the best brown gravy ever. Will definitely return to this restaurant the next time we are in Madison. Highly recommend this place and the food.

    We brought an out of town guest who had lived in Paris for 7 years. She just raved about the food and the venue, and insisted upon picking up the check. The dinner and desert we had was just wonderful in every way. Can't wait to go back!

    The dining area is pretty unassuming but the food is far from that. We really like the green French toast. It is very filling a good value and very delicious. Wine list is limited but there is something to satisfy almost everyone’s palate. Strongly recommend making reservations although walk ins are possible

    Great brunch! The French onion soup is to die for. I think it’s better than Tornado. Everything was cooked perfectly..the eggs..the bacon…the potatoes. Having our delicious and correctly brewed coffees be refilled regularly seals the deal. Thank you very much for that!

    We had 1pm reservation but the person said they close at 1:30 and then throughout our 1 hour stay, she kept pushing us to finish so we ended up rushing and leaving at two. She actually stood behind us staring us eating. Do not open the reservation for 1pm of you are going to provide such poor service.

    Booked a birthday dinner for my wife as she wanted to try the dinner cuisine after we had brunch there earlier this year. The food was wonderful. The service was okay but the server was very overworked with a table of 9, and a table of 6 in addition to us and 2 other couples. The table of 6 arrived just after us and were also celebrating a birthday. It was very obvious that they had been "celebrating" earlier before dinner. They were extremely loud for a small space like yours, and several did not cease speaking or commenting the entire time we were there. To communicate my wife and I had to lean over the table close to each other just to talk. A planned enjoyable birthday dinner for us was ruined by these individuals with their loud voices, constant demands and requests of the server, and not caring about anything except for themselves. My hearing is significantly affected by background noise, so it was difficult to hear anything, except them. It got to the point where I was getting a headache from the loud vocal volumes. We had planned to have dessert, but ended up leaving to get away from them. My ears were ringing for several hours after leaving. I really wanted this to be a very special dinner for my wife of 45 years, but this group prevented that from happening. I know that you don't choose who makes reservations and comes to dinner, but I would hope that some guidelines would be developed and/or posted concerning vocal loudness and it's possible effects on other diners. The server was good, but was overwhelmed by these two large tables, especially the group of 6 and their constant questions and requests. As I said earlier, you don't have a whole lot of control over who comes to your restaurant. And let me say again, the food was wonderful, even though the environment was not. If we come again (and I hope we do) I will bring ear plugs with me, just in case.

    Beef bourguignon, chicken, (poulet a la Normandie), duck confit and croq madame were all incredibly tasty! The recommended wines were perfect, and the waitress was delightful, although she seemed to be the only one, and therefore a bit busy. In spite of that, she was attentive to our questions. It was a pleasantly slow paced meal!

    Everything was great from the moment we stepped foot in the door. Service was on the slow side because they only had 1 server but that was fine with us because it allowed us to be more leisurely. I hate feeling like I’m being rushed so for us a little slower better than fast. Our server herself was excellent and provided good friendly service. Food excellent! Value for the $ also excellent

    Excellent authentic (!) French country food for brunch, would recommend to anybody who values high quality food. We had the crepe and the gallette, plus a desert crepe. Good coffee too. Waitress was super busy on a Sunday morning but never lost her smile and positive attitude. Would return here in half a heartbeat.

    Very small space, somewhat limited menu, but food and service were very good. Air conditioner wire hanging down over entrance door detracted from ambiance, looked like a hazard for tall people. Nothing too inspiring about the decor. A little disappointing compared to our first experience a few years ago.
