We had excellent steaks here. No need to ask for well-done if you really near medium. Our steaks were over cooked but our fault. Good wine choices. Portions are large. Couldn’t fit in dessert. Beggars in parking lot.

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.
