Great food & experience
Food was outstanding and ambience great; service was very attentive without being over bearing but did take a long time between courses. That was only down side. If you are in a hurry this is not a good place but if you have time to relax and eat like the French then it is fantastic. Remember the French live to eat whilst Americans eat to live.

Mother's Day Brunch 2013
My wife and I were new to the area and wanted to find a place to meet our friends with their children for the special Mother's Day brunch. We made a reservation and hoped for the best. Cafe Monet really has terrific food. The kids who ranged from 3 to 8 also had a good time with the meal. We will definitely be back for dinner another time.

We have dined at Café Monet
We have dined at Café Monet many times - the food is creative and of high quality. The menu allows a combination of small plates, which makes for an enjoyable experience.

Good food at a good price
Nice little restaurant with good food. We picked a slow night (Tuesday) and had a nice quiet meal. This was our third time there and would go back. BYOB.

We (2 couples)enjoyed this
We (2 couples)enjoyed this attractive, low key spot. Well prepared food, BYO. We were (pleasantly) surprised at how quiet it was on a recent Saturday. Ordering is a little confusing since the sizes of small plates, half plates, and full plates is not clear. Some were more generous than others, but we liked trying different dishes. Salad with smoked trout was delicious and big enough to share. We shared a smaller sized duck entrée, which the kitchen split for us. Scallops were excellent. Maybe because business was slow, they did not have some of the more desirable desserts available, but all of the plates we tried were well prepared.

French ala Millburn
This was my first experience with Open Table and with Cafe Monet. This quaint BYOB in downtown Millburn had a pleasant atmosphere, welcoming ambience and laid back approach to dining. I had the watercress salad special with ricotta and peaches, and the special braised short rib for my entree. My friends had the escargot appetizer which I had to taste...and it was worth the taste...delicious. For dessert, I highly recommend the apple tart with a macchiato - the sweetness of the tart balances well with the bitterness of the coffee. The prices were a bit higher than I anticipated, but the quality of the food and the overall dining experience would bring me back here again.

We had a lovely QUIET meal,well
We had a lovely QUIET meal,well served, and very tasty. the portions were perfect and the wait staff very attentive. This is not a large restaurant,but one that very welcoming and perfect for a romantic dinner. The biggest problem is lack of parking, We most definitely go back as they also were attentive to the fact that we were going to the theater.

Okay Neighborhood Dinner
The food itself was pretty good, just not outstanding. The pate was only okay; the carmelized onions made the pate dish. Both of our entrees were good, not remarkable. We definitely enjoyed the perks of the BYOB. The downfall of the restaurant was the service. It took forever to get our app, and even longer to wait for our dinner. It's not that we were rushing off to a play or anything, it was just well beyond a relaxed casual eating pace.

Was I in millburn or montmartre?
Food was very fresh, well prepared, a small but well thought out menu.
But then we couldn't resist the seasonal specials that were delicious.
Trout Almondine. Beef bourgignon, server was more than helpful describing
the dishes and was flawless at anticipating our needs.
Great ambiance, felt like I was travelling thru France.
Smaller restaurant offering a la minute dishes, great find
and it was local to the playhouse.
