I agreet with Daryl: the restaurant has been there more than 10 years, and has always been reliable and not over-priced. Nice atmosphere with a great bar, the staff is friendly and know what they're doing. I actually find the portions huge (and I can eat like a horse, believe me.) Good steaks and chops, they know how to fry, and anything cassoulet-like will be great. My only complaint is about those tired side dishes, which accompany everything, always. I like braised cabbage and kale, but in the summer? And I detest squash. Let's try some new vegetables, guys, okay?

Cafe Loup is still owned/operated by the same chef and has not moved. Had dinner with three others tonight. We all liked what we ordered. The portions were reasonable to generous and the prices were average for that type of fare. My only negative observation was that they seemed a bit understaffed.

Sadly this used to be a good cafe. It is no longer. Having moved and changed hands it falls flat. The portions are small and mediocre in flavor. At all costs avoid the trout, or should I say minnow, as half of mine was missing. It appears to attract a chic crowd later in the evening so if that is what you want in a dining experience maybe this place has some redeeming virtue.

The food was non-descript. The menu has some clever concoctions, but they are prepared at a mediocre standard. There was nothing that my party ate that stood out. The Pate tasted like meatloaf. Desserts are overpriced. I suppose if you live in the neighborhood and have the money, sure eat the food. There is no reason to really go out of your way though.

Cafe Loup is the best neighborhood restaurant in the village. Awesome staff that always just show up when and if you need them in a great extremely comfortable space. I have been eating here for over 10 years and never get bored of the food. Owner/chef Lloyd Feit always has great seasonal specials from Cassoulet in the Winter, to awesome Shrimp with Vietnamese dipping sauce in the Summer. The standard Cafe Loup vegetables really make the meal: red cabbage in red wine, squash puree, kale and broccoli are all amazing and worth the price of admission alone. Nice bar, interesting desserts including the world's best chocolate pudding (and rice pudding). Check this place out, you'll become a regular.

If you want a great bistro, not too noisy, great food, attentive but not smothering service this is the place. Mussels ( were on daily special) can transport you to Paris or Brussels. Tornados also excellent as were both chocolate desserts The service was excellent, the waiter only came when we needed him had a great sense of humor and offered assistance when requested.
