This place was perfect for Valentine's Day. Intimate, service was attentive, but not intrusive and the food was exceptional.

Real-deal French bistro, a rarity in NJ. Classic French menu choices, well-prepared. BYO.

Cafe Monet is a charming neighborhood bistro with a European flair. The food is always well-prepared and delicious, the servers courteous and helpful. We love to listen to the classical guitarist who plays on Sunday nights.

The food was mediocre at best. Slow service. Very nice people. No wonder it was empty. So sad.

We had an early dinner before a play at Paper Mill and were the only customers for the first 30 minutes. Food was quite good and service as expected given the circumstances.

We had a 5 pm reservation, called to confirm the night before and when we got there the place was dark and the door open. We went into the kitchen and only the chef was there...he was so friendly and went above and beyond to assist us by seating us and taking our order as he called the waiter to see if he was on his way, 25 minutes past 5. All in all the food was wonderful however no one even mentioned what happened or even acknowledged what occurred. When the Manager walked in he was oblivious to the tables there and didn't even offer a hello. This was a 50th birthday dinner for a guest visiting from India as we took him to the theater. Sad the this opportunity was missed......

Dining in Millburn offers many choices but our favorite is Cafe Monet. If true French food is what you are looking for this is the place for you. I started with the Escargo Au Gratin which was delicious. For the entree I had the skate which is a staple on their menu and never disappoints. We were dashing off to the Paper Mill Playhouse so didn't have time to endulge in the yummy desserts - maybe next time.

We have dined here several times. Our most recent dinner was somewhat disappointing.
The kitchen was slow even though they were only half full and the special entree, shrimp and scallops on a skewer was served with the shells on the shrimp - difficult to eat. We hope to go back and have a better experience

This my third or fourth visit to Cafe Monet but the last two or three were a few years ago. I don't know why I had not been back since. You can be sure the next visit will be sooner.

Cafe Monet has wonderful food and very pleasant ambiance but the service was a little slow (but not painfully slow).
