Atmosphere: I  liked the frosted glass and detailed decorations.  We went while it was still light out, so things seemed a little too bright; I think everything would have looked nicer at night.

Drinks: My boyfriend drinks ridiculous amounts of water with meals, so it was nice to have an entire carafe at our table.  In terms of cocktails, I originally ordered a martini, but the bar turned out to be out of Valentine White Blossom vodka, so I had a Strawberry Fields instead.  Our waiter was very excited to make the drink, so I felt too bad to tell him it tasted like water.

This beautiful crepe was actually supposed to go to the table next to us.  Luckily, we spent a long time taking pictures of it and hadn’t taken a bite before it was sent to its correct owners.

The Green Goat: chicken, bacon, green apples, caramelized onions, mixed greens, goat cheese, roasted garlic, and shallot vinaigrette.  We opted to spend an extra $1 to have this crepe made with buckwheat, and it was very tasty!  The goat cheese and green apples were the most distinct parts of this dish.

The Honey Bear: raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, peanut butter (we substituted Nutella), honey, and graham crackers crumbs.  The honey and graham cracker crumbs were perfect together, and while the fruit did not make a huge appearance, this crepe was delicious!

Service: Our waiters were very nice and earnest, but made some beginner mistakes, like trying to take our menus before getting our orders.  However, it wasn’t anything that detracted from our overall experience, if anything, it was kind of cute; it was clear they were trying to make sure everything went well!

Price: Our meal came to a total around $40; many Yelp reviews criticize What Crepe? for being too pricey for their portion size.  However, I enjoyed both crepes, and didn’t think the bill was too unreasonable.

Overall: This feels like a restaurant that just opened, rather than one that has been working for a while, but maybe things will improve over time.  There are a lot of negative reviews on Yelp, which may have lowered my expectations, but I like the concept and had a pretty good experience!

Check them out on Yelp or at their official website!
