Description: "My favorite restaurant ever! anywhere!" heard daily...music to our ears. We take the extra effort to get local vegetables, eggs and meat as well as flowers; to serve sashimi grade tuna, a rustic pork shank, lobster pasta; fresh daily pastries from West Virginia's best baker; locally made artisan bread; extra virgin olive oil, great wine list, candlelight etc! all pays off. We don't cut corners and our fellow foodies recognize this and honor us with their presence. Reservations advised or willingness to wait in line.

Recommended by friends, and one of the few restaurants open Monday for dinner, the thoughtfully procured and prepared dishes did not disappoint! The welcoming and competent waitress informed us that the menu was new and made recommendations. My husband, who almost always orders tuna, ordered the Sashimi Tuna entree and pronounced it one of the very best hes's ever eaten anywhere, a delicious combination of flavors with the tuna perfectly grilled, just seared on the outside. My Pasta La Terra was also excellent and flawlessly prepared, juicy chicken breast abed fresh grilled spinach and high quality noodles topped with a a full-flavored and not too heavy parmesan alfredo sauce. We shared a crisply fresh salad as our appetizer, and they thoughtfully split it before serving. The portions were generous, so sadly we had no room for one of the scrumptious-sounding desserts. Next time we go to Lewisburg, we'll be dining at the Stardust Cafe!

REally liked this trendy little restaurant with micro greens, fresh artisan breads, and out of the world desserts, all served up as 3-D art. The service was pretty fast on this particular evening, despite a full house. Other times, you might have to wait a bit, but there's a neat antique shop next door.

We have always enjoyed Stardust Cafe but based upon our experience Saturday evening, something is out of step there.

Although I had called earlier in the week and was assured a table in the front of the restaurant, the person who met us at the door was planning to take us to the middle of the restaurant until I asked her to seat us at the open table in the front. Apparently no note of my request on the reservation. She was not happy.

We were seated and proceeded to review the menu and make our selections. The Veggie Marinara was not available that evening because the zucchini was not appropriate for the dish. We substituted pasta and thought all was good.

No, the waitress returned and advised one of our guests that her item (salmon) was not available that evening. (why were these items even on the menu?)

We ordered our entrees, no appetizers, and a bowl of soup.

We arrived at 7:10, and the soup didn't arrive at our table for at least an hour we placed our order. No apologies, nothing. Then the waitress brought salads, which none of us were even aware came with our meal, and there was no opportunity to select a dressing.

The entrees were OK - really nothing great. The pasta had a lot of water on it and the grilled vegetables were sparse and without flavor. Unfortunately, 3 of us were served this dish. We should have stayed home - ours would have been better.

The entire meal really lacked, and the dessert selections were not inspiring. Cheesecake and a couple of others. We ordered coffee because it was always delicious, but no, it wasn't anything great either.

I don't know what's going on, but this used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but no longer. Dinner lasted 2 hours.

We had made the reservations and took some long time friends of ours who had never been there - we ended up being very embarrassed by the service and food.

Maybe lunch - but not dinner.

I don't know if the owner is out of town, or has just lost interest, but it is a far cry from our previous meal there 6 months ago.

Over the last seven years we have had quarterly occasions to visit in the Lewsburg, West Virginia area. We were thoroughly surprised to find a local restaurant on the main road through town that serves up absolutely great food. We make it a point to go after 1:00pm for lunch to savor the "Trust Me Salad" and/or the "Naked Burger." One cannot get seating around noon because the place is so crowded due to its popularity, hence the recommended 1:00pm show time. The atmosphere is most welcome, the service is excellent, the staff talks with you, even the chef on duty will talk with you! The staff promises me that there are absolutely no calories in any of their desserts prepared by a local bakery chef, I think a relative, so enjoy a great meal topped off with a mouth watering dessert. I promise you that you will return again and again as we have!

We attended on Saturday night with a group of 20 persons. The restaurant is not large but the tables had nice room between . The food and wine selection was enjoyed by all. The service was excellent and attentive. We had a peanut allergy that was handled professionally.
