I had a very nice dinner with my wife, my mother in law and sister in law. The food was delicious and service was great. I had several appetizers - my own and shared. They were all very good. The rabbit was delicious. The steak filet was tender and cooked just right. We had no room for desert. We ordered... More

This restaurant is no doubt located in a beautiful setting. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather and the ambiance. The only reason why this does not get an 'excellent' review was because we thought the quality of the food fell short at the dessert plates. Both the desserts we ordered (a chocolate and beet cake/ something... More

First, I have to say that the setting for dinner alone is worth a lot and it seems like that is mostly what you are paying for at Cress. It was very romantic and service was excellent. My husband was very happy with some of his choices for dinner (foie gras and creekstone filet), but I wasn't as happy with... More

We celebrated our anniversary here and it was truly a magical evening. Seated by the creek at the far end, it was almost like having our own private dining room. Our server, Alex, answered our questions, anticipated our needs, and served us seamlessly. We;ve eaten in many fine restaurants around the world, and I really think this was the best... More

The ambiance is spectacular with the creek rushing past you. The servers are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. There were heaters and blankets available for the cool evening. Every dish was spectacular.

A tricky menu, lots of unusual offerings that are difficult for a simple taste. Food was good, but not over the top, it was just too fancy and pretentious for us. The fixed price offerings were tough to choose from because of the unusual aspects, and we would have preferred that dessert was one of the choices rather than an... More

My wife and I had our wedding anniversary dinner at Cress. Fantastic location with our table and many tables lined along Oak Creek with ducks nearby upstream and squirrels occasionally scampering about. Staff was great, including and maybe especially the valet guys who offered to water our dog in the car and wouldn't even take a tip afterwards - these... More

We visited for lunch, when the restaurant is called "Etch." They change the name at dinner to "Cress," but it is the same venue. It used to be called "L'Auberge"- I guess they must have an identity crisis going on. I found that confusing when trying to get information. Also, the street address is both "Little Road" and "L'Auberge Drive,"... More

This was my birthday celebration. My niece recommended Cress and so thankful she did. It is pricey, however, the food is good, the service impeccable and the wine list is outstanding. We had a creekside table with the sound of the rushing water and an outdoor heater to cut the chill. I had the foie gras, veal cheeks and filet,... More

We couldn't have loved our experience here more! We were able to have a creek-side table with a personal heater, which was perfect with the full-moon glistening over the water! Every single bite of our meal was amazing, our wine was exceptional and our service fantastic. I seriously think this will go down as one of the absolute favorite meals... More
