Renaissance Cafe Ratings and Reviews

Rene, our server, was personable and knowledgeable--very pleasant.
My wife and I are part-time residents of Lindsborg and visit the Renaissance for dinner at least four times each year.
The menu, while limited, with small portions, is excellent.
We, oftentimes, bring friends and/or relatives with us to celebrate a special occasion.
We look forward to our next visit.

This is a cute cafe outside of Salina Kansas. We have been there before and liked it enough to go back. This time the service was terribly slow. The mouse that ran across the dining room and stopped next to our table before someone kicked it into the servers area was not acceptable. The servers nor management mentioned it our apologized. I will not be going back.

Arrived early, we worked on a puzzle and had our drinks while we waited. Menu is always changing and the selection is wonderful. Meal was great, and the atmosphere was amazing. Our wait staff was very friendly and very helpful. This was our 4 visit to the restaurant in the last 2 years. We will be back. This is the place to have a special meal for any reason!

Wonderful experience. Our waitress was excellent and very informed on the menu. The meal was delicious. We ordered the porterhouse for 2 and the meat was a little grisly but overall very good. The dessert was scrumptious. Coffee cups were refilled endlessly! Loved that!
Very nice place and quaint!

This was our first time there and the menu was exquisite. The special of the evening was the orange and rosemary marinated rack of lamb in an espresso bourbon cream sauce served with mascarpone whipped potatoes and roasted seasonal vegetables. The lamb was so tender you could cut it with a fork and cooked to the perfect medium rare. Renee was always attentive and energetic about the food, chefs, and foodie environment. The small bite appetizer of crab mousse on a herbed shortbread wafer was the teaser of the whole meal and the earl grey/meyer lemon sorbert as the pallet cleanser could have been served anytime on a hot summer day.
We have eaten many places around the world, but this was by far one of the best meals we have had in a while. To think this little gem is in a small town in Kansas which has converted an old school house into a five star restaurant. We will definitely be coming back over and over again.

We drove more than 75 miles to get there and it was worth it. We had a very pleasant evening. Pleasant ambiance, good pacing to the courses and great food. It appeared that the staff who prepared the food paid attention to detail as every aspect of the meal - appetizers, salads, main courses and side dishes were all very well presented and prepared.

The food was jsut ok, not great. The service staff were off, people left waiting to be seated even with reservations, they all were rushing around and gave the impression they were unsure of what they should be doing. My wife still enjoyed our night out, but the restaurant and food did not contribute to that.

We've been to the Renaissance café multiple times before this chef, and loved it. And this was our first time with the new chef, and the food was better than ever! We had a wonderful server as well, and she knew and liked the food very intimately for such a large and seasonal menu.

I was in charge of picking the restaurant so I chose the Renaissance cafe to give my group a great experience from beginning to end and they did not disappoint. It was fantastic with fantastic friends. Thank you.

We had the best dining experience of our lives. We were treated so wonderfully by our waitress. My daughters Birthday was made very special by the whole experience. The food was amazingly delicious. It was served beautifully. The one thing we were especially pleased about was the portion sizes,the amount of food was great. We were all so full!

It is a remarkable restaurant in an unexpected place. Very inviting entry garden and foyer. Innovative menu, wide variety and excellently prepared and served. Local sourcing. Moderate pricing. Save room for awesome desserts.

The appetizer, salad and soup were excellent. I did not feel the main course meals were all that good. I had the herb crusted tuna and about all you could taste was oregano. I also tasted the duck ravioli, it was very sweet, not my taste. Also sampled the chicken ravioli and it was very good but was very rich, not sure I could of eatten half the serving. The steak was excellent.

A jewel truly in the middle of nowhere. We went for our second time, and were concerned about the loss of Chef Kevin. While I was disappointed to not have the delicious sausage/mushroom polenta from our first visit, the chicken carbonara was very good. Each of the four of us had a different entry and no one was disappointed. Very unique experience, we'll be back again.

Service was exceptional my glass was never empty. Great recommendation on wine pairing with meal. Loved the seasonal salad made with heirloom tomatoes. The ambience was exceptional. The food selection had fare for all taste buds. We had the steak each piece was tender melting in you mouth like butter. We were on a low sodium diet so the crab bisque was a little salty for our liking. Very smooth texture. The cucumber sorbet cleansed the palette between our salad and entree. The cheesecake was not overly sweet and a great conclusion to a great night. Thank you nice to have a place of this caliber in centtal ks.

We made our reservation and when we got to there before our scheduled time, we were told the chef left for the day. We had to drive over 30 min to get there. Very disappointed. Why have reservations if you don't honor them?

The Renaissance Cafe is a real jewel. The food is top notch and the setting is like no other restaurant I've ever been to. We started with the antipasto platter; I had the chicken carbonara; and then dessert was the most unique: upside down rhubarb with a pistachio brittle. It was all excellent.
It's a great place for a special occasion.
