My daughter and I went there for dinner and at first I was really excited. When we were seated we were put in with a table of four on our left and two on our right so close together that it was totally uncomfortable. The dinner was about 40 each and it was just not that good. I would have... More

Had a great time here. I've heard greatly divergent reviews of this place, but I really liked both the wine -- a good, honest Chianti, not over-priced -- and my hearty, substantial veal stew. Service was terrific. It was the real thing -- l'll come back soon.

Come to this little corner dining establishment and enjoy a wonderful pasta dish amidst a beautiful decor. Although there was a steak and also a pork entree, most of the entrees were freshly prepared pasta with quite an array of sauces and ingredients. Pasta Carbonera was my choice and I never looked back. A very good salad was included as... More

The food and service was excellent. We were looking for a place with good food, one that could accommodate food allergies and allow they didn't have a special child menu, the staff was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates good food!

We finally made it to Kate's On State (it's actually now Kate's "on 4th and Main", downtown). Due to our schedules, we went early on a Monday and as expected, pretty much had the place to ourselves. Needless to say, service was excellent. I did note from other reviews, issues when the restaurant is busy and there were (empty) tables... More

Kate’s was introduced to me on a business trip several years back by a colleague and I have since made Kate’s a must on any business trip to Lacrosse area. The staff is well trained and have a wonderful wine selection but this is just a tip of the iceberg. Kate’s signature dishes are truly original and authentic. I have... More

We found Kate's by chance. The four of us had different pastas - all were fabulous. Love the atmosphere, the service was excellent, and although the prices are on the high side, the freshness of the food and the unique dishes are well worth the price. Will definitely be back!

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Kates on State...sort of a misnomer as it is located at the corner of Fourth and Main Streets in Downtown La Crosse. We passed on appetizers, reluctantly but, were glad we did after ordering salads that were more than substantial and very very good. We both elected pasta dishes with chicken,... More

We actually meant to go to Kate's pizza or something else but found this first and realized later we were not at our intended destination! This was really good anyway. I had some fantastic chicken gnocchi and a great cucumber martini. I was there with people from work and they seemed to enjoy their food too. I liked the atmosphere... More
