Granted, we visited on the first day of Restaurant Week but I have never seen such a poorly trained staff. The first rule of hospitality is to make the guest feel welcome and the staff couldn't have cared less. Restaurant Week features a limited menu....More

Arrived around 4:00PM to find an empty venue as expected. Both the front desk and bartender were not overly friendly or welcoming. We chose to sit in the restaurant but an hour later, with 4 of 5 empty drinks, had not been offered refills. The...More

Rebecca can pour a tall beer or mix a delicious cocktail. The kitchen serves up a tasty meal. Good for an after work happy hour beer or weekend dinner date.

I'll start with the bottom line. I rarely give 5 stars but I almost did this time. I'll go back again soon and if I still love it like I did last night I will change my rating. The atmosphere was just what we were...More

Savor Cafe Chanson’s award-winning contemporary American-French cuisine prepared by our Chef de Cuisine. Our menu changes reflect the seasons; but we retain our French classics and guest favorites such as the Boeuf Bourguignon, Pan Seared Salmon, and Moules Mariniere. Our menu boasts the flavors of France with a casual touch, such as our Croque Monsieur, a classic French ham and Swiss sandwich that rivals any found in the sidewalk cafes of Paris; and our Royale with Cheese has a reputation among our guests as being the “best burger in the state”. In addition to our seasonally changing menus, in warmer weather we also boast one of the most beautiful patios in town, featuring breathtaking views of the Fox River where you can enjoy outside dining or perhaps just a hand-crafted cocktail or one of our numerous wines by the glass, something that can of course always be enjoyed year-round in our cozy Taverne bar. Finally, in addition to our set menu of expertly-prepared cuisine, we also feature nightly Chef’s Specials and hold special events such as Wine Pairing Dinners, Themed Coursed Dinners, and Special Event Packages that include dinner and a night’s stay in our Boutique Hotel.
