"Friday night, pre-Paper Mill show. Table for 4. Only ones in restaurant from 5:30 until 7:00 pm. The staff was courteous and very helpful for the gluten sensitive guests. Delicious food. No hurry. We enjoyed ourselves (although it was a bit chilly in the restaurant in February), had plenty of time for dessert before the 8:00 performance. We will be coming again, for sure."

"As usual, Café Monet puts together a smaller prix fixe menu for New Year's Eve, but it never disappoints! Walking into this modestly-sized bistro, the decorations for the occasion are sure to put everyone into a festive mood. The food was well-prepared, with something for everyone, including our vegetarian companion. Given that it's BYOB, the evening was priced right -- not nearly as expensive as other restaurants in the group."

"This casual small BYOB French restaurant is one of the best places to eat in Millburn. The food is flavorful and classic. We had a delicious whole scallop and risotto dish recently. The pot de creme is classic. Other dishes and salads have been quite good. And it is not expensive. Only downside is that the service can be spotty /slow."

"We were happy to find a restaurant open Christmas Day. We had Asian the night before and wanted to stay local, then go to a movie.
The Christmas Day Prix Fix menu was perfect for us. We brought a nice Bordeaux and enjoyed all three courses. The staff was focused on all those dining. Food was fresh, flavorful, and hot.
Looking forward to going back for the full menu."

"We have dined at Cafe Monet previously and enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Unfortunately, Christmas Eve did not work out. While Open Table accepted our reservation, when we arrived at Cafe Monet there were no tables available and no one at the desk to even acknowledge that we were there. We will try it again at a less busy time."

"Based on reviews, scheduled a 7pm dinner for party of 4 to celebrate a birthday. Upon arrival, encountered a smiling Maitre D, who politely turned us away without a hint of introspection or doubt that she screwed up our reservation. When I showed her our OpenTable confirmation (7pm, party of 4), she offered no apology - and informed us we would have to sit in the dark and empty other half of the dining room - clearly a great inconvenience to her.
Then she disappeared into the kitchen, and an older man emerged, who rushed to set our table... I asked the Maitre D "Did you not have our reservation for 7pm I made last week?" "Yes, we did" was the man's reply.. who seemed to genuinely care about fixing this oversight. But it was too late to change our feelings of being unwelcome interlopers, relegated to the cold, dark side.
My advice to the restaurant- use this as a learning opportunity for your Maitre Ds on how NOT to greet your patrons.
Checking the reservations and offering a sincere apology would have done wonders."

"We arrived too early, were still invited in to sit until they were prepared. Liked the prix fixe which freed you up to order whatever you wanted without thinking of the price. The escargot was exceptionally tender with a good size portion. The rack of lamb was accompanied with a spicy lamb sausage, fresh carrots and potatoes just melted in your mouth. Had the apple tart
which was served warm with delicious ice cream. The service was friendly, unusual for a french restaurant. We felt very much at home and will certainly be back to this gem.

"Went on a Saturday night and it was full. They had a live guitar artist playing and he was really great. It took about 25 minutes for the service staff to come to the table and bring water or menus. Several tables, that came in after us, got their food before us. Food was good but not great. Given that there are so many options, I probably wouldn't go back."

"My girlfriend and I enjoyed the most amazing dinner on Valentine's at Cafe Monet. The service was amazing and the food was even better. The atmosphere was such that even though small in nature it felt like we were the only two people in the entire place. The noise level was perfect. The food was amazing."

"My wife and I enjoyed a very pleasant pre-valentine dinner. However, on getting to the restaurant there was no host/hostess to sit us and had to wait for them to set a table for us. The waiters appeared to go about their business without taking time to ask/tell us someone will be taking care of us.
The atmosphere was great after getting settled. The food was great and well presented. As expected in a French setting the food was just right portion-wise. We appreciated getting a different desert than what was being served for the night which was mainly chocolate.
We will definitely go back!!!!

"My wife enjoyed their escargot and, for dinner, the coq au vin. It was very well prepared & very tasty. I was fortunate to have ordered the lamb special, which was also perfectly prepared. We look forward to returning soon!"

"It's not as if we hated our experience at Cafe Monet, but we expected more. The menu must have been limited for the holiday so some of the items that we expected to order were not available. Service is definitely their downfall. No attempt to explain dishes or guide our orders. Almost like they were doing you a favor to take your order. The clincher was dessert and coffee. We asked for and we're promises cresm, not milk, for our coffee. After dessert was finished and twe other employees offered help, the cre arrived. Coffee cold, dessert gone. They didn't even have the sense to take the coffee off of the bill. So when they have replaced the front of the house we might give it another try. It has potential."

"Cafe Monet is an unusual restaurant. Tries very hard to be a little French Bistro. The night we went it was mostly empty. The server was very good, a bit theatrical. The food was good, not amazing. We might try it again in the summer as they have a small outdoor dining area."
