Lovely spot with easy parking nearby. Popped in for small plates. Really expected fresh handmade crab cakes for the price. Other small plates were ok; nothing I couldn't whip up at home. Chicken Caesar was average. Friendly wait staff.

Kate's is an excellent restaurant in downtown La Crosse. Everything on the menu that I have tried was superb. The chai martini's were delicious. Service was prompt and attentive. Overall thumbs up.

Our service was poor. The waitress couldn't answer many of our questions, nor was she very personable. Very limited "healthy" options, but the most disappointing news was that they don't serve Italian beer at and Italian restaurant!! Spendy for pasta that is sub-par.

Our granddaughter had been here before and thought we would like it .She was right. Delicious dinner salad. Our main dishes were delicious.More than enough food on your plate. Not to much garlic.

Had not dined for dinner since they moved to their downtown location. The food was just as amazing this time around! Filet melted in my mouth and the pork ribeye was to die for! Everything was very well seasoned and prepared beautifully. Katherine our server was very polite and provided excellent service!

Pastas to die for! Sauces like nowhere else! And a boatload of food for the price! We make a stop here at least once a month.... And there is no doubt that Kate's has the best filet in town as well! Come hungry and leave happy! My daughters very favorite restaurant ❤️

WE had a fabulous server . She told us about the entrees, we decided to split one. I think the entree could of served 4 people. Was very good. Nice atmosphere

Had one of the best filet mignons ever! I love to cook and this place rocked it with every plate. Service was spot on. Marcy, our server, was very professional and pleasant. Nice wine list and CLEAN!! Make sure to use the restrooms...well at least the women's room.

July 2016 - ordered both of Kate's specials. One was a filet with shrimp and lobster ravioli and a yellow curry. The second was the pork special with mashed potatoes and a spiced apple side. Both were OUT OF THIS WORLD! I have never had pork prepared that was as luscious and mouth watering. It was more tender and flavorful... More
