There's a few other spots that have bigger crowds (which is fine), but this is a smaller, more charming, more romantic spot along the river. A little further down, it's more isolated - the kitchen is a little more aged/beat up looking (more European) -...More

We were hungry and liked our burger. Didn't know we got fries too. Prices were different in the two places we looked. But it didn't matter because the order taker at the window forgot to tell us it was ready. The place wasn't that busy...More

Cyrano's Cafe on the Riverwalk is in an ideal location, truly right alongside the river. For us, it was simply an ideal place to pause from sightseeing to relax with some refreshment and enjoy the views and ambiance under the trees. The service was so-so,...More

Beautiful place near dusable bridge with great food and excellent service. It's a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Michigan avenue

We happened to stumble upon this place while walking along the riverwalk. We stopped for a drink and an appetizer. We shared the cheese plate. It was very good, a larger portion of each cheese would have been nice since we shared it, only got...More

We visited Cyranos for lunch on a Sunday, the location is excellent and our wait staff (Mike) were friendly and helpful without being invasive. The mushroom swiss and veggie burgers were tasty and filling. Only criticisms were the lack of coffee and tap water (not...More

Completely unexpected to find such a great little place to stop for a bite, and so authentically French, on the Riverwalk. The rabbit pate was exceptional, with no doubt as to the dedication of the chef to his profession and passion to capture and transmit...More
