A word from Dream Cuisine Cafe
Dream Cuisine Cafe brings you the creations of our award winning Chef Vincent Fanari. We are your local French Provencal restaurant. The menu features dishes of Modern French, and influences of Mediterranean & American cuisines. With an ambiance reminiscent of a European cafe, diners will find themselves immediately relaxed & ready to enjoy the finely prepared meals. The space seats forty people & is arranged so that guests will enjoy the benefits of both privacy & dedicated service. All menu selections include only imported cheeses, wild fish & free-range meats, held to the highest standards of freshness & general quality. The menu changes often, not only to reflect seasonal produce & other ingredients, but also to consistently offer guests new dishes & constant variety. Parties may meet with the Chef in advance to personalize the menu for an event. Chef’s table menus & special dietary needs are also accommodated. Dine as the Europeans do!

Diner Reviews
  • "Unassumingly sited in a strip mall across from a mega-Italian restaurant, Dream is completely an oasis of wonderfully executed dishes which make your mouth water and your heart sing. Additionally, the service from our charming and down-to-earth waiter made it feel like we were having dinner with friends (who cook really well). The only criticism, the veggie and starch du jour were just "ok"; while the apps and entrees were bursts of vivid and fantastic flavor, the potato au gratin and asparagus were a little bland."

  • "There's one thing (and only one thing) that I dislike about Dream Cuisine and that's the name of the place. The food is excellent - don't miss the rack of lamb."

  • "Great local French restaurant. Food was excellent and the only opportunity for improvement would be the servicer staff is young and inexperienced but try really really hard. We had a delightful anniversary dinner and will go back. The food was excellent. Forgot our wine and they connected us with a at your table delivery service. The one star missing is reallya round the inexperience of the servers but they were cute and worked / tried hard which made it easier to not get frustrated. "Great French food!"

  • "My friends and I were looking for a great restaurant for our foodie-friend's birthday. Usually we go to Philly, but we needed to stay in Jersey and - wow - were we happy we did! Dream Cuisine is a hidden gem located in nearby Cherry Hill. The food is exquisite - fresh, amazingly presented, and beyond delectable. The foodies in our group all said we must go back! In addition, the servers were friendly & engaging and - something rare these days - they encouraged us to take our time and really enjoy the experience, which we did! Bravo to the chef and the wait staff for a superb dining experience!"

  • "The guitar background was delightful and the wait-staff attentive but not intrusive. We selected from the prix fixe menu (ahi tuna and chicken gruyère entrees). Each dish was memorable (the sauces in particular were fantastic) and served with perfect timing. This was our first visit, but we will return for sure -- with friends. "

  • "This is our go-to restaurant for a special occasion. The food is always creative and delicious. We get the prix fixe menu which is approx $50 per person but you get a salad, a small plate (appetizer), entree and dessert. Always worth it! Highly recommend. "

  • "Chef Vincent consistently serves phenomenal meals. My wife and I shared the escargot appetizer. It was delicate and very tasty. We used the delicious french bread to absorb all of the sauce in the serving bowl. We each had the Hawaiian Skate for our entree. It was presented beautifully. It looked like a magnificent decorative fan on our plates. The appearance was surpassed by the taste and texture of the Skate prepared in Dream Cuisine's signature provencal sauce. The entree was accompanied by Chef Vincent's wonderful lyonnaise potatoes and green beans. Thank you Chef Vincent for another wonderful meal."

  • "The place where flavors are experienced and prepared properly. It is obvious that the best ingredients are used in the cuisine. The atmosphere is cozy and pleasant. The servers are awesome and personable. Pricing is not shy, but quality comes at a price and worth it. "

  • "We went with another couple and we all ordered the price fix of $50 for four courses. We all ordered something different and everything was cooked to perfection. There are very few restaurants with French cuisine in South Jersey, so this is a gem!"

  • "The menu doesn't change very much but it never fails to please. Try the onion soup, grilled shrimp, rack of lamb and brulle cheesecake and you'll be delighted."

  • "We celebrated my wife's birthday during Restaurant Week. The four course meal was from the regular menu - all of our favorites were included. Every dish we selected was delicious. A tremendous bargain at only $35 pre fixe. Once again our chef reminded us why this is our favorite restaurant in Cherry Hill."

  • "The Dream Cuisine Cafe is a hidden wonder! I've been going there with my wife for several years now and it is absolutely terrific. I introduce the place to new diners every chance I get and when we accompany them they all leave astounded by the quality of service and the extraordinary preparation of the food. Vincent the chef is outstanding and very amiable. His wife Beth who acts as the maitre'd is equal pleasant. The food quite simply is fantastic! Chris and Mike, the waiters, are great. A superior place to have a fine meal. The price fix on his meals are a real bargain. A secret gem!!! I just couldn't endorse it any higher............."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Every time I go to Dream Cuisine, I get the rack of lamb. Other entrees sound good but the lamb is not to be missed. This past visit there was a new item for the first course - an onion soup. It was NOT the usual cheese clogged, overly salty mess. It was a real French onion soup. If you see it on the menu, try it."

  • "This local BYOB gem has seating for about thirty and is nestled in a shopping center on route 70. You would likely never know it was there unless you read reviews or visited the shopping center for something else. We found it on Open Table. Three of us dined there on a Friday night. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. As we ate, all but a table for 2 were full. The menu is medium size with options that will satisfy any palate. Options exist for a la carte or prix fix for four courses at about $50. All of our courses were well prepared, appropriately sized, and tasty. One of our party had skate which is an uncommon find. An excellent guitar player/singer provided quiet background music. Highly recommended for a group of 2-4."

  • "This is a fantastic little gem. The food is amazing! The only problem was we were a little surprised to see how small it is. Plus it took 45 minutes just to get our salads and another neat hour for apps. By the time at ate or full course and paid, or was 3 hours. I wish I had known, wet would have made earlier reservations. Other than that, fabulous."

  • "Just a little cramped with the seating and table arrangements, however the chairs were very comfortable. The only reason I gave the food 4 stars was because I was not happy with the choice of desserts and would have like more of a variety to choose from. Nice little place!!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Being so small, we had some difficulty finding the place. The tables for two were really tiny, and several were wedged into corners so that you could only get out with great difficulty. Fortunately we were able to have a choice and got a larger table that provided easy in and out. The food was excellent, we loved every bite. But the service was extraordinarily slow. If you have any plans for after dinner, choose another place."

  • "We!ve been going to Dream Cuisine for the last 3 years for Valentines day and every time start eating our dinner we wonder why we don't come here more often . The service is friendly , professional and well timed. We love the delicious food, and it's presentation. Of course the ambience is so cozy,and softly romantic. Also, you can watch the goings on in the open kitchen with the owner chef and his staff. The prix fix meals were perfect. Smoked salmon w/ caviar appetizer and the second course of mussels in light sauce and scallops w/ giant prawn were perfectly cooked and presented beautifully . My filet mignon w/ lobster cake, exquisite ! !Desserts, perfection! Do bring your favorite, good wine to this fabulous BYOB .Tres Bien!"
