Exemplary, as usual. Service was great- attentive to our needs but sensitive to allowing us to take our time for conversations, etc. Menu limited but offering choices across a range of taste preferences. Food was well prepared and presented and delicious. Ambience is wonderful - so much better than most local higher end places. Beautiful views. Tastefully decorated. Refined atmosphere allowing conversation and avoiding raucous scene common to many other restaurants.

Always a pleasurable experience at Cafe On The Green

We had a lovely early supper reunion on the porch...quiet and relatively private with a view over the green.
The waiters and maitre'd were super accommodating; food was delicious especially the veal entre. We will meet our family again at the Cafe.

We ate at Cafe on the Green in Danbury to take advantage of a dining special with a limited (6) choice of entrees. The special included salad and dessert. Our four entrees were very good - two had the Shrimp Scampi with Linguine, and two had the Eggplant Parmigiana. We also had several different desserts. The two who had carrot cake said it was excellent with lots of fresh carrot and pineapple flavor. The creme brûlée was excellent also with a crunchy sugar crust and smooth creamy custard base. The cheesecake chosen by the other in our group was also deemed very good. All in all a great dinner at a tremendous price. Portions were a little smaller than regular dinner meals, but certainly large enough for our two men and two women. Certainly be back again.

Excellent food, nice selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts and a great value.
The staff is attentive and very accommodating.
The views are lovely whether dining on the patio in summer, enjoying the autumn colors or a cozy winter evening with snow.
This is a hidden gem.

We visited for Father's day and used their Prix Fixe 5 course menu. Just amazing. Both app choices of Penne a la Vodka and the Risotto Balls were perfect. Yes, I tried everything. Nicely done salad course followed. Two of us had the Red Snapper with lobster, quite amazing for a small restaurant seemingly hidden in the woods! Another guest had the salmon and quipped "it was the best meal they've had in 3 weeks". The last guest had the rack of lamb. Done to perfection, and she liked it so much, I only got to try a small piece.
Nice choice of wines as well. Will definitely be back, may hit a round of golf there first, as it also sits on a nice course called Richter Park Golf Course. I cannot wait to try the lamb delivered by the cart girl. Ha! Enjoy and thank you Cafe on the Green.

We attended for Father’s Day and everything was delicious! Service was outstanding. The restaurant was nice with a view of the course. Food was delicious but portion size of side dish (vegetables) was skimpy. Other than that.. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted great!! Loved the dinner choices and excellent desserts as well!! We’ll definitely go back.

Went for lunch with colleagues, and turned out to be an excellent choice! I got the ahi tuna bowl (delicious); the salmon got great reviews as well. We were not there to golf, but the view out to the driving range/back nine was lovely & active. Not many there (3-4 other tables), so easy for us to talk together. Staff is extremely professional. Would definitely go again

We have loved Cafe on the Green for years. However the food last night was not up
to their normal standards. The Calamari was tough and the veal in both my husband's and my dish was not the usual cutlet but some kind of tenderized veal that was more like chopped meat

We picked this restaurant because it had great reviews. Wow that was misleading!! It’s fine but definitely not great. We saw our server a few times - not very attentive although he was friendly. They sat us next to a huge party that took up five tables and we were next to the kids table. It was so loud we asked to move and then they sat us by the door and told us the outside empty tables had reservations (although we also had a reservation). The food was ok. They advertise they are Italian food and when I ordered an Italian dish and asked for Parmesan cheese they brought me two packets of Parmesan similar to what you’d find in a cheap pizzeria. For a $150 bill (that did include drinks) we wouldn’t go back.

Delicious food, perfectly cooked to request. Lovely setting outside, overlooking the driving range and one hole (9th or 18th, not sure which).
Service was just a wee bit slow, considering there were very little customers at the time. But our waiter may have been looking to us for clues -- we were chatting away and having a wonderful time. Still very good service, and a lovely experience. We'll be back for sure.
