Had one of the best filet mignons ever! I love to cook and this place rocked it with every plate. Service was spot on. Marcy, our server, was very professional and pleasant. Nice wine list and CLEAN!! Make sure to use the restrooms...well at least the women's room.

July 2016 - ordered both of Kate's specials. One was a filet with shrimp and lobster ravioli and a yellow curry. The second was the pork special with mashed potatoes and a spiced apple side. Both were OUT OF THIS WORLD! I have never had pork prepared that was as luscious and mouth watering. It was more tender and flavorful... More

My mouth is still watering! The meal was phenomenal! A return trip is definitely in order! Kate's on State has a great atmosphere for a special date night or a couples night out. The staff was equally as impressive as the restaurant's atmosphere. This is a must stop for anyone visiting LaCrosse looking for a fabulous meal!

We went here for our eldest son and his wife's birthdays. I had their pork special. It was a loin chop browned in a pan then finished in the oven. It had a delicious reduction sauce with brandy, apples, herbs and other items. It came with garlic mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables, that were done perfect. The meat melted in... More

My wife and I have been a customers for years. The signature dish is a filet mignon, crab ravioli and shrimp, it is great! It is expensive but there a lot of high quality items in that offering. My favorite is Polo Puttanesca, what a great taste sensation. My wife's favorite is Tortellini Oliverto she always looks forward to our... More

Nice after work dinner with a friend. Quiet on a Thursday evening. Our server was attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu. Bread was served with three delicious spreads/oil.

I recently relocated to La Crosse area from WA state. I have been missing a great seafood meal and I finally found it. I ordered the seafood and wild mushroom ravioli and I actually thought I was home with a view of Puget Sound and more. The seafood was fresh and abundant, the cream sauce was amazing and the ravioli... More

My wife and I LOVE this restaurant. The layout of the restaurant is a fun, eclectic design. The food is excellent as well. If you stop by make sure to save room for some tiramisu or bananas foster (we ordered both!).

I am so mad at this place! I called in advance to mention it was a special occasion. The server did not acknowledge, brought us out wrong bottle of wine. We ordered the steak special and it was $60 (worth 20 at best). We didn't get our leftovers as the server forgot them, and didn't give my stepmother the dessert... More
