Came to Cafe Navarre for special birthday lunch. Food was OK. Service was OK. Environment was OK, but kind of loud. Maybe we will come sometime for dinner to find out if that’s better.

It is a nice place to go with friends, family or for business meetings. I had the opportunity to visit it for different events and sometimes the food was awesome while other times was just ok. I guess that will depend on the Chef.

The appetizers were exquisite. We were adventurous with the entrees and happily surprised. Our daughter had fun choosing a great cocktail and our more stately drinks were excellent. This is our celebration place and will remain so.
