In my 40 years of all levels of food service management, Champagne surpassed and exceeded all of my expectations. The food was absolutely outstanding, out doing Don Schula's in Florida and The 95th in chicago and the Eagle's Nest in Indianapolis plus others in my travels and career. Thank you for your excellent service and a great time.

From the ambience, delicious food and a great pianist our valentine's night could not have been any better. They take personal care to be sure everything is perfect. As far as I am concerned this is the best place in Dubuque to have a fantastic dining experience.

Walking into the restaurant and being offered champagne was a nice start to an evening with two other couples. However thats when the good service stopped. Upon arrival to the bar, one of the women we were meeting was already there and had an empty wine glass. We were at the bar for 25 mins and the bartender failed to offer her another drink and was short with us. We went to the table and had even worse service there! The music was on for 5mins and then silent for 20. The food was good! The wine list was short and over priced, when we ordered a bottle off of it and was told later that they were out of it, with no offer for a comparable one at the same price.
I would not spend another evening dinning here! I would rather spend my time and money in other Dubuque fine dining establishments!!

I dined at Champage a few month ago and enjoyed my experience, it's a solid joint. My expectations are a bit higher for a casino restaurant as I do travel a lot and have spent sometime in Las Vegas.  

I was extremely impressed that I was offered a compimentary glass of champage when I entered the room and although inexpensive, it wasnt garbage, but free is good. I had the Crab Cake, Lobster Bisque and Filet Oscar. Overall the meal was good with little nuances that I thought needed improvement. The crab cakes were ok however they were listed as New Orleans style and I found them to need more flavor. The lobster bisque was presented in a small cup/bowl on an "artichoke" folded napkin and the portion was small for $8. Also, I hate to be overly critical however the napkin fold was something out of the 1970s. The filet was good however I'm not sure the bearnaise was from scratch or not. 

Like I said, overall pretty good however a little pricey and service was a bit slow but I wasn't in a hurry anyway.

Very nice touch when they serve you a complimentary glass of quality sparkling wine at the door. The cocktails were good but pricey. The table setting was very nice for Dubuque. All meals were good but not out of the park. No negatives though. Server was friendly and good. Overall on my list for nice restaurants in town,,,but not on the top.
Give it a try.
