My wife and I had the opportunity to dine in the tower where the room with a view was set up by candlelight for an intimate dinner for two. Upon arrival we were greeted by one of the owners - Eva (her husband Timothy was in the kitchen as there were already many tables seated throughout). We were given a... More

The food was absolutely tremendous. Each course was really something special. This is the heart of the growing season so we were surprised that there weren't more fresh fruits and vegetables featured; the menu looked the same as it would in the winter. Unfortunately, the service was not what we expect when we splurge on fine dining (Over 200 with... More

Thank you for your review Amy, It is always good to have good critics to improve our service. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of the issues you talked about and this is why I didn't mentioned anything, if I was the one who took your dessert order. I (the owner) haven't been able to work at the restaurant as much as... More

Le Chateau is a unique experience in LaCrosse dining, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a "special" place to make memories. The restaurant is in a truly historic, old world setting from years gone past, and it is hard not to catch yourself admiring the decor. The food is very good, unique and very well prepared.... More

This is quite the find in Wisconsin. The building is gorgeous and well restored. The rooms are attractive. The menu items are all very creative and yet traditionally French. The wide choices is an impressive aspect. It is tough to have that many raw ingredients ready to go nightly. The seared foie gras was excellent. The clams and shrimp in... More

The new bar/cave in the lower level is amazing! Beautiful and great service. Dinner upstairs was not the same. Service was mediocre despite the beautiful setting. The menu was enticing and we were enthused. However, our food arrived at room temperature at best. The gnocchi was not only cold, it clearly had been reheated by frying butter. They were awful...

Thank you for your review, We have been concentrating our effort in our newly opened lounge "La Cave", so I am glad you had a great experience there. However, our regular restaurant should not suffer for that and we will use your comment as a training tool to resolve this issue. Thank you for sharing your experience and we hope... More

The atmosphere was romantic and intimate. Very beautiful place. I loved the french onion soup but my entrée was "so so". The amuse bouche was delicious.

This was our first visit to Le Chateau and we were quite impressed with the decoration and atmosphere of the restaurant. However, I was not impressed with my dinner. I ordered Cappellini with seasonal vegetables tossed in a brown butter sauce and was served Cappellini, tossed with herbs, topped with creamy blue crab. I did not send it back because... More

Thank you for your review, I am sorry your experience with us was only average during your last visit. You are right, Capellini pasta are just a little bigger than Angel hair pasta; we didn't have our fresh capellini for a while and used tagliatelles instead (the flat one you were served). The server should have told you though and... More

My wife and I dined here for our 15th Anniversary. We are not from La Crosse, so we picked the restaurant based upon the TripAdvisor reviews. First of all the setting is fantastic. The food is amazing and unique. I really struggled with the amount of time we were at the restaurant to eat dinner. It took almost two hours... More
