Elegant yet casual reasonably priced gourmet cafe in an art museum. You don't always find that. In addition to great contemporary art, inside & out, this cafe adds culinary art to the scene. A new (3weeks) chef straight from 'Chopped' on Food Network, continues haute...More

Our go-to place for all special occasions. The wait staff has been there for years and years. They are extremely attentive, professional waiters. I was saddened to hear of Jennifer's passing, but the new chef is carrying on the wonderful food tradition.

With a hint of sadness, we returned to Cafe Sebastienne for the first time since the unexpected death of executive chef Jennifer Maloney. The management is looking for her replacement, but in the meantime, the quality has not suffered. Talented staff continue Jennifer's tradition of...More

They serve the best Halibut I've ever had and they make my favorite martini. I've never had a meal there I didn't like. I love the atmosphere. You can't go wrong with art and great food.
