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.

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.

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.

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!!

Food was delicious and the staff was very patient considering we had three small children in our group. They were very accommodating by bringing their food with the appetizers. However, there only seemed to be one waiter for the entire restaurant on a Sunday night. For that reason it took some time to order and get each course. The food selection including the specials were delicious and had a great variety. The scallops and short ribs were perfectly cooked and the prices were appropriate for the quality of the food.

Easter dinner was prix fix for 5 courses. Course 1 was listed as bread. A small plate with 3 small fingers of toast plus a dressing was placed on the table to be shared by 3. Was this an error or should we have had 3 plates? Salad was nothing special - no field greens or additions, just romaine. Entrees were very good as were desserts. Service quite slow. Price of $60/pp excessive for this meal, no mimosa or cocktail included as is the case with most holiday brunch/lunch. I would give this one more try on a non holiday to compare value.

I went there for Easter dinner w/my family.
The service was overwhelming at the start but soon tapered off to the point that we were left for long periods w/out anyone bringing our orders or just stopping by to ask if everything was all right and did we need anything. The price-fixe dinner at $60 p/p sounded good but the portions were very small; it looked like one of our guests had received a piece of cake that had been cut in half. The wine glasses were HUGE but the amount of wine they contained looked small. I see no point in having over-size wine glasses unless you get a matching amount of wine, which seemed expensive for a house wine. For the most part my guests agreed with my analysis of the meal as we discussed it in the car on the drive home and later on. I don't plan on going to this place again nor recommending it to anyone else. "Café on the Green" is decidedly NOT "Tavern on the Green"!

This was one of the most boring, overpriced meals I have had in a long time. They offered, what they dubbed, a 5 course prix fixe menu for Easter lunch. Garlic bread sticks was the first course followed by a choice of stuffed risotto balls or penne a la vodka. Then came a salad that consisted of some leaves with 2 slices of tomatoes and 2 slices of cucumber...boring! The lamb and the fillet were good, but the red snapper was as bland as hospital food. All meals were accompanied by a side of mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables...total lack of imagination, could have made it better at home! Dessert was the best part of the meal...lava cake, chocolate mousse cake and crème brulee were delicious. All this for $60 a person...no drinks included.
To top it all off the whole meal was rushed, from start to finish 1hour 15 minutes, served one course after the other, as soon as we put the forks down the next dish came.
Final check included 21% gratuity, no questions asked.

Have wanted to try this place for years. It's on a golf course. We had a window seat so we had a nice view. There were only 4 other tables full the entire evening. I liked the ambience however there were a few children @ the tables (1 crying baby) but when they left it was perfect. Service was extremely attentive. My husband got the lamb which he loved & I had the snapper special. It had a sauce on it that was ok however I prefer the seafood stands by itself. Dessert was good.
