My husband really enjoyed his filet. It was cooked properly and delicious. I ordered the heirloom salad and a crab cake. The tomato salad was a small pizza crust with feta and a tiny amount of tomatoes. Very disappointing. The crab cake was just ok.

We had a great time at Cafe Navarre. The menu is creative and tasty. They combine ingredients in innovative ways and create fresh flavors, like Carrot cake pancakes or Crab Eggs Benedict. The "build your own" Bloody Mary is excellent!!

The fusion of Old World style architecture with natural light and the finest interior furnishings, the ambiance of Cafe Navarre is truly one of a kind.The style of food offered by Cafe Navarre includes French, Italian and Spanish. Cuisine distinguished by simplicity, full flavor, and healthiness describes the overall style. Cafe Navarre's menu also offers more fresh fish options than what other local restaurants typically offer.Dishes created with farm to table sources are unmistakable in flavor and quality. These are regularly featured at Cafe Navarre, along with an array of top shelf wines at prices that our customers return frequently to enjoy.Private Rooms: For your special event or business meeting, Cafe Navarre can seat up to 20 guests in each of three private meeting rooms.
