Very pleasant atmosphere. Service is polite and friendly. Usually busy so reservations recommended. Food is above average and well presented. Far better than nearby franchised restaraunts.

I used to go to Caribou quite often but hadn't been there for a long time, until today. Lunch was perfect. Prosciutto Chicken Caesar Salad never disappoints. A glass of Cabernet and impeccable service moved me to call and make a dinner reservation as soon...More

Net work colleagues for dinner. Awesome atmosphere, great service and a very unique menu. Little expensive but worth the cost if you are going for a business dinner and want a guaranteed good experience. Had the rabbit pasta, highly recommend!

Definitely, but I'm not sure there is a kids menu? So if she/he's okay with adult food, I'd definitely bring a 7 year old there.
