I was here for my daughters wedding. The food was great. The service couldnt have been better and Roger was the biggest help all around. I would recommend this to everyone. Thanks again, you made a very stressful day into a pleasure. 5 star only because you cant go higher.

I wish I could give Café La Cave a billion stars. My husband and I got married on 10/31/14 for a Halloween themed wedding. From the moment we walked into Café la Cave back in January we knew this was the right place for our special day. Kim and Randy became part of our family as we planned our big day. There is such attention to detail. We did not have a conventional wedding; in fact some family members were reluctant to the idea of a Halloween wedding. However, Randy made our wedding into the most beautiful, classy, romantic, and unique Halloween themed event. We have been getting several comments that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Randy took it upon himself to ensure that Mark and I were on point with what was going throughout the evening. We did not have to stress once throughout the night about how things were going to happen. In fact, I am here to say that we had our wedding 10 months after being engaged and we did not feel stressed once throughout the entire planning process. It was thanks to Café la Cave that our event went perfectly, and become more incredible than anything I could have ever imagined. I am actually going to miss getting to spend time with Randy and Kim as they are some amazing people and really made us feel like we were the only event they had for the year. I should mention Randy even had his own daughter's wedding the month before ours and he still made time for every little phone call or email. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our wedding, the staff, and the entire venue. The food tasting was such a blast and Kim made the entire process fun and easy. Everyone working at Café la Cave takes it upon themselves to think of new ideas to make your day everything you want it to be. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Café La Cave! You honestly made our wedding the most perfect day of my entire life and I only wish we could re-live the day over and over again. If you are looking for a personal experience in planning your wedding and want to have the most beautiful day, the with best tasting food, a night of dancing and care free fun, while working with the most fantastic people than there is literally no other place to go than Café La Cave. The only reason you wouldn't use this venue is if you are intimidated by hosting the best wedding anyone had every been to, because that is what happens when you have your wedding at Café la Cave!!

The food was not worth the money, even with the groupon. The steak was burnt, the martinis tasted like poorly mixed jungle juice, the mac n cheese was bland, and our waiter was pushy. The only good thing about the place was the mashed potatoes. Our bill came out to over one hundred dollars, but I felt like I ate a 5$ meal.

Our fairytale wedding was held at Cafe La Cave on November 8, 2014 and It was the absolute best day of our lives!!! Our guests (all 300 of them) continue to tell us how much fun they had and how it was the best wedding they have ever been to! We have nothing but extremely positive things to say about La Cave. I first want to thank Randy Sutter for all of his hard work and time spent with us helping to make our wedding perfect. From the moment I stepped in to Cafe La Cave last year, I knew that it was the perfect place for our wedding. Randy was professional and friendly during our first meeting and his attention to detail, knowledge and creativity was above and beyond what I was expecting. Through our 13 months of planning, he was attentive and always available to answer my questions and concerns. He had suggestions and ideas to help me when I was indecisive or unsure about something. He sat down with us on numerous occasions going over every detail (linens, centerpieces, music, decor, etc!). His incredible coordinating skills truly made the night go SO smoothly! His itinerary of the evening was unique and worked amazingly!!! THANK YOU Randy for making us feel so comfortable and helping make our wedding AMAZING! In addition to Randy, the staff at Cave La Cave was wonderful! Everyone was courteous and professional.. the service was fantastic!! The food was beyond delicious! Our waiter during the reception was fabulous making sure we had everything we needed or wanted and was extremely courteous and professional! Cafe La Cave was amazing and made me feel so special! After the last song played, the lights turned on and none of our guests wanted the night to end!! Cafe La Cave was the castle to this princess's dream wedding! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I love this place. The first time I have ever gone was for my 21st birthday. I have been hooked ever since! The Steak Diane is not just an amazing tableside service, but also a delicious dish. The French Onion soup is great - but the Caesar Salad is AMAZING. If you like Caesar Salads, you will LOVE theirs! I had the Seafood Bake that was on their specials one time - best seafood dish I have ever had. I was in heaven. The staff is friendly and attentive, the food is epic. I will definitely be going back, time and time again! <3

The food is always amazing- I highly recommend the lobster bisque and the steak Diane. The waitstaff is very impressive, and allows you to take your time between courses- they do not rush to clear and serve immediately. The bartenders are wonderful, and the atmosphere is phenomenal. We tend to travel here (from an hour away!) for all special occasions!
