Diner Reviews
  • "Food is a "10" We had the pulled duck over pasta and the seafood plate. Could not be any better, particularly the duck. We always go out of our way to stop at Cafe on the Green and we are never disappointed. It is the perfect combination of casual and formal...you can dress either way and feel comfortable"

  • "Cafe On The Green remains the best dining experience in the area. No other restaurant in the region combines ambiance, service, and fine cuisine (not to mention a great wine list) in as superb a fashion."

  • "The wait staff was attentive. Home made pasta was delicious. We ate lunch on the balcony, overlooking the golf course, and it was very quiet. Good place for old friends to meet and talk all afternoon. Loved the mango martinis, too."

  • "We wanted a nice Friday night seafood dinner. We were able to have two great appetizers, grilled shrimp and lobster ravioli, followed by two seafood specials, salmon and lobster pasta. What a great night!"

  • "Veal with lobster, lovely colorful vegetables, mashed potatoes, mixed salad were all tasty, excellent. Very interesting varied menu. Our service was quite attentive and pleasant without being over-bearing. The setting is beautiful, overlooking the golf course although only one in party is a golfer. We don't live near by but chose it because one in our party being honored lives nearby. It was wonderful to be able to hear one another in conversation without having to ask twice for them to repeat themselves, something that happens often when we go out to dinner. We look forward to our next visit there; we could eat our way through the menu."

  • "Simply put, this is a gem within Danbury. The experience, from the moment we walked in and up until the moment we left, was memorable and executed expertly. I was looking for mistakes, and couldn't find any. The food was exceptional and the service was flawless. FLAWLESS. I cannot recommend this restaurant high enough, seriously. We ended up paying 120 dollars and left extremely satisfied, with some leftovers in tow! Just go there. Just go. You'll thank me later."

  • "My boyfriend and I decided to go to cafe on the green do to it's awesome reviews. I was scared that it wouldn't live up to it but it did. The service was amazing. The servers were very friendly and always around. They weren't overbearing but there when you needed something. Plating was nice and very unexpected. My boyfriend got the eggplant pram which he very much enjoyed. He said it was very light. It was okay for me. Maybe because he put pepper on it. I however got penne a la vodka which was very good. Overall very nice place."

  • "Once again, Cafe on the Green afforded a terrific dining experience. The holiday decorations provided an extra touch of warmth and elegance to the dining room. The entrees were delicious as usual and the wait staff are excellent. We always order the Bananas Foster for dessert and they don't disappoint! This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Danbury area and as Manhattan residents, we am comparing to some of NYC's best."
