Best restaurant EVER!

This restaurant is exactly what La Crosse has needed - a beautiful place with an unmatching location. The only that might be better than the riverfront view is their food and fabulous service. I would expect such a gem to be more expensive, but was surprised with the reasonable pricing and generous portions. The BEST beef I have ever had (and I have been all over the world dining at amazing restaurants) - they actually serve Prime! I couldn't believe such a wonderful restaurant is here in La Crosse. Kudos to The Waterfront and all their staff for providing me and my friends with one of the best dining experiences I have ever had!



Formal Dining

Very nice looking place with a nice big bar to wait at while waiting to be seated. (even though we had reservations)

Booth seating was not something I expected in a fine dining restaurant but it was ok.

Servers appeared rushed and behind but very friendly once they got to the table. Found the escargo presentation odd but tasty. The rack of lamb turned out to be only two lamb chops, portion was small and very average tasting.

We also had the swordfish which was a fair portion and very well prepared.

Overall I expected little more as it was in my view over priced.
