"It was a very nice meal
No fireworks--but very good
I did think the cost of the prix-fixe was a bit high (ive been spoiled by other places)
I'd certainly and recommend

"We'd been to Café Monet before (twice). It didn't disappoint those two times and it didn't disappoint this time. Tracy and Wes are wonderful hosts and servers, the food is delicious, and the ambience is special. And my wife and I enjoyed inspecting the art work by Barbara Dawson that is currently being displayed on the walls."

"Cafe Monet is an excellent place to have dinner in Millburn. The food, the music, everything was very good. The appetizers were large the entree's were small. I guess that's why the French are so thin. The creme pot desert finished it off perfectly. We will return again.
One thing to mention service was good but slow so if you are going to theatre make reservations early.

"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."

"Cafe Monet is a find that we continue to return to since the food is wonderfully fresh and the menus innovative. Seating is comfortable and waiters very helpful."

"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.

"Café Monet is always reliably excellent. Expertly prepared food is served in a relaxed atmosphere that pays careful attention to the décor. We enjoyed the hanger steak and cod fish - both perfectly prepared. The chocolate mousse and pot de crème were outstanding."

"Everything here is cooked to order and so service can seem a little slow, but you will find this well worth the wait. An intimate restaurant, unassuming, but with the highest quality food."
