We love Cafe Navarre! Great food. Good service. Fantastic decor and atmosphere. It’s an old bank converted into a restaurant.

I had two business dinners and a family dinner at Café Navarre this past month. Everything about each of them was terrific. Impeccable service and delicious, creative meals. It's our company's go-to spot for out-of-town visitors and a family favorite for special celebrations.

We slipped in for an early dinner. The wait staff was professional and proficient. The food was also very good. Really, there's nothing not to like about this place, but it's not a 5-star restaurant. That's OK. You cant go wrong here. Recommend.
