    We shared a lovely meal with mixed drinks to celebrate our 28th wedding Anniversary. We had the veal and the lamb shank, and both were beautifully plated, piping hot, and delicious. The mixed drinks were top notch. We tried the French 75 and the French Martini, both excellent. Topped the whole thing off with some creme brulee and cappuccino for dessert. Saeed, as always, made us feel immediately welcome. We love this place!

    We had another magical evening at wonderful Cafe Renaissance! There’s a very special ambiance that we can feel the moment we enter and are greeted by the warm and welcoming owner, Saeed Abtahi. This gentleman certainly never met a stranger! My husband and I have enjoyed so much the variety of the menu, the specialty cocktails, and desserts which are plated in such a delicate pretty way…with flavor to match! We’ll return soon because it’s hard to stay away from such a lovely setting for long!

    Friendliest welcome ever! I dined there recently for work. The manager and the entire staff were very welcoming. As I hesitated between two appetizers, the manager brought me both so that I could make up my mind for future opportunities. As we were done with our wine, he came back and offered us another glass free of charge and also got us a variety of desserts (also free of charge).

    Thank you for your visit. We need to clear up your statements. We did not bring you 2 Appetizers but gave you a small taste of second second appetizers. When you spent close to 400 Dollar for a party of 2, then we make sure to be fare with you and that is when we poured a little taste of the red wine for you. As for dessert, that we do for most tables. Thank you again.

    The Mother's Day dinner at Cafe Rennaissance was exceptional! The selection of appetizers was outstanding. For dinner our son had the Rockfish, my wife and I had the filet mignon - everything was delicious. The service was professional, and everyone was so courteous. I highly recommend the Cafe Rennaissance!

    Went for Mother's Day at 11 am. I thought it would be brunch, but it was a dinner menu. The food was bland and very expensive; it was not up to par from previous times we had been there. I think it was the B team on duty. Usually I would not write a bad review, but it was hundreds of dollars for three people so I'm extremely disappointed.
    Cafe RenaissanceResponded on May 15, 2024
    Thank you f or your review. Our dinner menu is a lot less expensive than our Special Days menus. When making reservations for super busy Holidays ( Valentin’s, New Years Eve, Christmas or Mother’s Day ), always call and check the menus, as many restaurants will offer special occasion menus. We have not offered any brunch menu since before Covid times. We had posted our Mother’s Day menu in our Facebook page and also in Google.

    Another wonderful meal at a truly lovely restaurant. The staff is very cordial and helpful and the food is tasty and well-presented. I had the salmon trio (smoked salmon, salmon tartar, and salmon roe) for an appetizer and sea bass for my entree. My husband had the wonderful onion soup for an appetizer and the crab cake, scallops, and shrimp for his entree. He was able to get the dish minus scallops as he is allergic to them!! Sample desserts and coffee rounded out our meal. A very pleasant evening all around.
