We were here for Valentine’s Day, and they only offered a fixed menu, which is not a criticism. The food however does deserve some criticism. The first course was a tomato basil soup, which was good, but served in a shot glass sized cup. The salad was a very plain lettuce, tomato and cucumber affair with an ok Italian dressing. I ordered red snapper with lobster, which didn’t smell quite right and after one bite was sent back to the kitchen. It was rubbery (probably under a heat lamp for a while) and had the consistency of leather. It tasted awful. I was given a replacement filet almost instantly, confirming my heat lamp theory, but it was actually good. My wife had the chicken entree and she rated it as average. The carrot cake was average diner quality. I would have expected this kind of experience for a fixed menu New Years deal, but not Valentine’s Day. The servers were all excellent and the venue is very nice. Too bad they were both let down by the kitchen.
We went for Valentine's Day; as usual the food was great and the service exceptional. The menu offered for this occasion was creative and would suit anyone's tastes.
Consistently great food, service and value
As always dining in this restaurant is an absolute treat. The food and service exceeds expectations and I would not hesitate bringing friends to thi marvelous spot.
Lovely New Year's Day Brunch, excellent service, delicious and well presented meals and festive restaurant decor

Great ambiance and setting. Food is consistent with an ample choice of beef, chicken. Fish and my favorite lamb. Wait staff is friendly, works as a team offering good service. No other location like it in Danbury.
It was very nice. We hadn't realized what it was beforehand (failed to google it), so we were surprised by the golf club feel, staid and simple.
One of our favorite places for a quiet romantic or friendly get together with family or friends.
The food is on a par with many NYC restaurants and the wait staff is attentive and accommodating - Luis, Omar and Carlos. We always have a delicious meal and a good time. The view of the golf course is beautiful in any season and the ambiance inside is comfortable and decorated to match the season. This is our best find in the greater Danbury area and a spot we can always rely on.
Our reservation was for Thanksgiving. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time. Waited 15 minutes past the reserved time and had to inquire as to seating. The hostess seemed clueless. When we were seated the table was prepared (while we were seated) as though we were in a fast food restaurant. Our meals were under cooked and service was very poor. We had to request our drinks to be refilled as we were not approached by staff to refill.
Great thanks giving dinner. Service was slow but food was delicious.
We were surprised that such a charming restaurant hid inside a nondescript building! The food was fabulous, the service was impeccable and we totally enjoyed our first visit. We will definitely return.
Always a great place with great service; Carlos, Luis and Stephanie were superb.
Our appetizers, fresh mozzarella for me and risotto balls for my husband, were good. Salads were fine without an overkill of vinegar. The sorbet between courses was a nice touch. My husband's main course was off-menu veal parmigiana with pasta. It was delicious and a generous portion. I ordered chicken sorrentina and was disappointed. The small chicken cutlet was tough and chewy. It was topped with a minuscule layer of eggplant that I couldn't taste and a slice of mozzarella that hadn't even melted. That was topped with a wonderful tomato-based sauce. The side veggies of green and yellow squash were tasty. There were mashed potatoes, but I skipped them. The service was attentive and friendly.
That's perfect ! I was the birthday my wife ... 8 people's ... everybody like the dinner
Cafe on the Green is a perfect spot for dinner with friends or a special occasion!! I The food is excellent the ambiance lends itself to a relaxing, enjoyable dinner. Never rushed, waitstaff always available. Just a great place!!
Nice restaurant with great service . We were looking at the restaurant as we had scheduled an Anniversary party there. We were please and think it will be a great place for our party.
Quiet and elegant dining experience which perfectly met the expectations of our guest who is an extremely well-travelled individual who was very happy to learn about this "new" restaurant. The table-side flambe preparation of the dessert of Bananas Foster is not to be missed!
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Cafe on the Green. The restaurant is in the clubhouse at Richter Park Golf Course in Danbury. The location can be deceptive. It is MUCH better than a typical golf club eatery. My wife had seafood puttanesca and I had rigatoni with sweet Italian sausage and ricotta cheese. The food was excellent, the service very attentive without being overbearing and the wine list was quite extensive. While not inexpensive, the prices are very appropriate for the quality of the food, service, and ambiance. I would recommend Cafe on the Green to anyone looking for a nice dinner.
I have wanted to dine here for years. I'm so glad I did. The restaurant was very upscale and very sophisticated. The food was perfect too. I will definitely go back and make this a new favorite spot.
Consistently superb food and service. Always a great experience and atmosphere at Cafe on the Green.
Not expecting a dining room in a old club club house in the middle of nowhere. We knew the golf course, which is very nice. But the menu for the bar was not available to the people in the dining room. On a Saturday afternoon the dining room was more formal than what we wanted. Wish we knew better when we made the trip.
Everything was good except for the cart guy decided to wash his car right next to outdoor dining during prime hours. Instead of staying for dessert, we left and went elsewhere
Have sampled a good percentage of regular menu: all good!
The best romantic place with very good food and excellent service.
dining experience was excellent, as always; we have enjoyed the Cafe on the Green many times thru the years and hope to continue.
We feel the need to yet again, write another fantastic review. We ALWAYS come here on our anniversary in December, when it is decorated for the winter and cozy-feeling. This time, we came here after a function we had in Newburgh, NY on a Sunday evening. Reservations made through Open Table, were easy, as always. We arrived half hour early and they seated us immediately. The waiter was friendly, as always. The appetizer, drinks, salads, dinner, desserts and coffee were, as always, impeccable and delicious. We wish they had something higher than a 5-star, because, quite simply, they certainly deserve it. They are situated on a golf course with a beautiful view. When we first got there, it was cloudy, but within minutes of being seated, the sun was streaming through the windows. We had a wonderful dinner. We cannot say enough. We hope that others read this review, as well as Open Table. We will keep coming here for our annivesary and other events, speaking of which, when we were there last night, there was a party going on, as well. The drive is worth the effort and though a tad pricey, we always feel it is worth every penny!! Great job again, Cafe on the Green!!
Cafe on the Green has become one of our favorite restaurants.
Food was delicious and service was excellent! We will be back!
