This is a lovely restaurant set in a former private home. It's amazing - each room slightly different. The restoration is impeccable. The food is excellent; if you're looking for a leisurely multi-course dinner, this is your place. Be sure to check out the bar downstairs. It's not cheap but if you're a foodie, a must do in Lacrosse.

Painfully long wait for any food. There was no bread, or anything to nibble on for 90 minutes. Once the food arrived, it was one disappointment after another. Soup had no flavor. Our waitress brought a glass of wine that she suggested, but I never ordered, nor did I approve her recommendation. The bread was not even good. A french... More

Thank you for your comment and review, Unfortunately you didn't experience the real feel of Le Chateau. I am glad you enjoyed our new lounge, La Cave; however, service and food on the main level should have been better. We have been extremely busy in October with guests using their "buy one entree, get one free" coupons expiring at the... More

Run by a French family who have made LaCrosse their home, the dining experience takes place in a meticulously restored historic mansion. The service is personal, the menu choices are delightful. We had a lovely evening for a family reunion. It could be the setting for a romantic night out as well.

Our waitress was absolutely adorable, super friendly and provided us with exceptional service! The gentleman that greeted us at the door was very polite and also helped us select a bottle of wine that went with both of our meals (Mas Carlot) The escargots were amazing. Our party had ever tried them before, but we were both pleasantly surprised at... More

We went excited for our first night out since our first night out since our son was born, unfortunately we went on a particularly busy Wednesday night. Our server clearly had more than she could handle and service was very slow coming from the bar. She came to our table with more bread (which is delicious) and apologized that our... More

This is a belated review so I hope they've improved in the meantime. Two of us couples celebrated our anniversary there in June and we had multiple issues: the cream in the coffee curdled, there were no pasta dishes available, a wrong salad was delivered, a main course was way too salty -- and I could go on! Oh, my... More

Thank you for your review Glenn B, I am sad to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience with us, however. We are a fine dining establishment, and we are always improving our service, thanks to customers' reviews like yours. We only have a few pasta dishes on the menu (we had a fresh tagliatelle with seasonal vegetables, homemade gnocchi,... More

They are so nice and the food so good. Best quail ever and the lamb Wellington was really good. Nice selection of bourdeaux wines.

Thank you for your comment on this site. You came on an extremely busy week-end night, a record night for us actually, which made the wait a bit longer than we would have like to, I admit, and I am sorry that we didn't make your 60th birthday as special as it should have been. As for your dinner, I... More

The atmosphere and food at this restaurant is top notch. The food is French inspired cuisine and dishes are designed for sharing if you'd like to. Highly recommend for a business dinner.

Out extended family gathered in La Crosse recently to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. We wanted to take her to dinner and she selected Le Chateau. This was a first visit for most of us and to be honest, I had set my expectations relatively low. I'm happy to say those expectations were vastly exceeded. We dined in the new... More
