If you are near Ramsey NJ don't miss it. Don't forget to bring your own wine.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were entertaining guestsWe were entertaining guests from Los Angeles., California. They loved the food and the total dining experience.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantically PerfectOnce again an absolutely perfect evening with couples who have returned from Florida. We celebrate their being home in N.J. by dining at Cafe Panache. The quality of food was outstanding as usual, the ambiance was perfect as usual and the service was outstanding as usual.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Enjoyable!We have been dining at Cafe Panache for the past several years and have never had an unsatisfactory experience. The dining room is elegant and the menu and food are delecable. This restaurant will remain on our list of favorite places to eat for sure!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty good w/ a few caveatsAmbience was great. My steak was a little over cooked (I ordered medium rare, got medium). It was still tasty. Overall, the other meals were enjoyable. Creme brulee was great. Service was very good.
However, I was disappointed with my warm goat cheese & beet salad appetizer. There were only 2 quarter slices of beet (and a small little broken piece) in the ENTIRE salad. I don't mean it was just small--I mean this was a big salad w/ greens, grapes, cran, apples, walnuts--this was a huge salad with everything under the sun in it except beets!
In a goat cheese and beet salad---I expect there to be actually beets! They should just call it a what it really was--some sort of delicious summer salad with goat cheese!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Local RestaurantIf you want a local restaurant that is special try Café Panache. It our favorite for all special occasions.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe Panache is everythingCafe Panache is everything you could ask for in a great restaurant. The food, the service and the ambience outstanding. In this BYOB restaurant remember to bring your own wine. The menu is creative and the specials are based on local availability. From the time we were greeted by Mark the host till the meal end the service was perfect. My wife had the goat cheese beet salad and salmon. I had the special soup which was a lobster bisque with mussels and clams.The filet mingnon raviolis were so good that my wife who does not usually order meat asked for seconds after trying my dish.. Try the pineapple tart great. The experience here has now added Cafe Panace to our must repeat dining places. The staff made us feel like we were regulars bravo5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy FoodThe stuffed artichoke was absolutely delicious, we got full from dipping the tasty bread in the artichoke sauce, I had filet minon which was cooked to my ordering very good sauce and the crispy onions and small puffs off mashed pototoes were very good as well. I didn't like the Kalua in the tiramisu so I sent that back and ordered another creme brûlée which was divine. The service was perfect. I had wanted to go to Cafe Panache for awhile and it was worth the wait. It's hard to be on a diet while eating there as well as be a vegetarian I broke down and had meat, oops !!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect diningPerfect dining, delicious food, friendly management, decor elegant and quiet theme.

I hadn't been there in a long time but it is better than ever. There were so many good choices on the menu and the food was absolutely delicious. And, I love bringing my own wine. I get to drink what I like at a price I can afford. Great evening.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Tier for Bergen CountyGood food, good service (not amazing since we felt a bit rushed) decent price. Not much more you can ask for in the small town of Ramsey. Its a neighbor gem just don't compare it to Manhattan.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the first time I'veThis is the first time I've been to Cafe Panache in a number of years, and I immediately wondered why I'd been away so long. Attentive service, excellent food, and a nice environment. I know many people wait for a special occasion to visit this restaurant, but we went on a normal Thursday and felt very pampered and special, especially since Cafe Panache wasn't packed, so we got even more attention from the professional wait staff. Worth a trip!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing as always. We'veAmazing as always. We've been dining at Cafe Penache for years and have never been disappointed. The staple wild mushroom arugula salad was fabulous. We ate the filet mignon ravioli and the halibut special in a wasabi sauce. Both were tasty and beautifully prepared.
Desert was our usual white chocolate mousse which is to die for and of course great coffee and expresso. Without question one of the best, most consistent restaurants anywhere. Kevin and his staff do an amazing job.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLove going to Panache whereLove going to Panache where everything great from atmosphere to service to food is common.

The entire staff was great, Nice and friendly and would do anything for you. My fiancé and I went there for date night and would definitely go back. We both had a special – he had the lamb I had the fish. I'm not a "fish person" but I ate the whole thing, they were both amazing. Don't think I left without having one of the most amazing Ice cream desserts I've ever had. My fiancé not being a "dessert person" ate the entire thing we had to order a second. My parents are now going there next weekend for their date night!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHad great service on a FridayHad great service on a Friday night.
