Six Stars

When you enter the door at Cafe Renaissance, you step into a new world of indulgence, elegance, and value.
I can testify from experience that you will feel comfortable and relaxed immediately.
As I have found over several years, the standards for food, ambienc, service, and overall pleasure are the highest.
This Italian-French restaurant earns six stars, easily.
Ask for anything that will please you, and they will gratify you.
My best summary of the Cafe Renaissance experience is this: I see people enter with frowns and concerns and up tight about the day — within seconds, they begin to relax. Within minutes, they are smiling, then laughing and shedding the cares of the office or whatever.
If you need a quiet place to close a business deal or whatever, ask for a table in the private room.
Wherever you may be seated, you will be treated as royalty, and feel that way.
See you there!

Caviar torte

A brand-new treat, introduced on July 3.
Superb Beluga caviar atop a cucumber dip ensconsed in a quarter-cantaloupe. It’s surounded by slivers of cucumbers and beets, and presented with swirls of chocolate at the four corners of the plate.
Words are inadequate to pay tribute to the new dish. Order it and enjoy!

Cafe Renaissance is Awesome !!

Cafe Renaissance is a neighborhood gem offering a wide range of Italian and French dishes, prepared and presented with the gastronomic flair of a restaurant that cost five times as much. The ingredients are superior and the wine list is fantastic. The owner is very attentive and will happily respond to any request or resolve any concern. The Irish coffee may actually be the best in the world… i have had none better… and it is prepared in a manner that is both dramatic and romantic. Table side preparations are performed exquisitely. Highly recommended!

If you haven't gone here. DO SO SOON!

We dine at Cafe Renaissance 5-6 times a year and have since not long after it first opened in 1994. It isn’t that we don’t like other area restaurants. You’ll find us at Bonaroti’s, Marco Polo, Sea Pearl, and 2941 as well. Also various GAR spots, Bazin’s, Olive Garden, and let’s not forget Santini’s or the Pan Am Family Restaurant. We like all of those places also, but repeat after me -- there is no place like Cafe Renaissance, there is no place like Cafe Renaissance. The food is always at least an A-, and the service and atmosphere are consistently an A+. The wine list is extensive, the eponymous flaming Irish coffee is a one-of-a-kind after-dinner delight, and for all that, the check will not require you to open a new home equity line. What’s not to like? A good meal is itself a recipe calling for many different ingredients, and the staff at CR are expert at all of them. When you leave at last, you will be glad that you came and will already thinking up reasons to come again. It’s that good.

Pepper Steak

Actually, it was a grilled rib-eye done rare and in a red wine demiglace. Wonderful. It wasn’t on the menu, but the menu here is just a list of some of the things that they could prepare for you. Unless the place is packed to the gills, either the owner or the chef will gladly work out the details of a meal for you. Give them a general idea of what you feel like having and they’ll sketch out a variety of ways for getting from here to there and then make that magic happen. Others in my party had the filet as well as a custom-designed flounder with lobster plate. Nice!

PS. The tip scale as defined is a joke. What it should be…
