The food was good, but way overpriced. When I pay $40 for an entree and $17 for a salad, I expect the whole experience to be awesome. The bread tasted freezer-burned, the steak was extremely peppery, and the overall service left something to be desired. I think if you are a regular, like most people around us were, you get a bit more attention.
If my total meal cost $60, rather than $130, I would give it a much higher rating.
It never disappoints-excellent as always!
Although it was Valentines Weekend , and quite crowded, we were treated as though we were the only patrons in the restaurant. Absolutely fabulous experience!!
Mark the Maitre’ de took great care of us as did the rest of the staff . 5 stars!!!
Continues to be one of the best in New Jersey. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Menu was diverse but did not over do it and the prices for lunch and the quality were in a range of excellent value.
Nothing bad his way about this local favorite. Cafe Panache has the most professional staff around. Lunch today for our party of 6 was handled perfectly. A mix of salads, ravioli and specials featuring tuna and salmon provided the perfect balance for everyone. Guaranteed good food, professional service and a warm ambiance make this a perfect choice for any occasion.
We have been several times and have never been disappointed. The food is always wonderful.
Good food, good service and a pleasant ambiance for dinner. What else should you want?
Our experience at Cafe Panache was excellent, from greeting, to wait staff, to incredible meal, to perfect finish desserts! We were not rushed and really enjoyed savoring the delicacies of our meals. If fois gras and or calve's liver is one you enjoy, then its a must order! Remember to BYOB!
Always a good choice for a delicious meal. BYO policy adds to enjoyment.
My husband and I went for dinner the other night for our 47th anniversary. We couldn’t have been happier. The ambience, the service and the food we’re off the charts perfect. We are already thinking of when we want to return back to this beautiful restaurant!
I have never had a bad meal here. Everything is absolutely delicious.
Our waiter was arrogant, rude and rushed us from the moment we sat down. ( We had a 5:30 reservation on a Sunday and we arrived early)!
The food was fresh but the sauces were over the top and ruined the flavor of a good steak au poivre. The filet mignon ravioli were terrible.
We have dined at Cafe Panache since they opened years ago and feel the food and character of this restaurant has deteriorated.
We will not be returning.
Incredible dining experience from beginning to end. Top Ten meals of all time
Best restaurant in Bergen County. Every time is perfect. Simple, delicious and perfect.
Been here many times over the years.
Always great to have Chef-Owner present.
Food quality top notch.
Ambiance worth the trip
BYO a definite plus.
Have not been in some time but did not disappoint. Service and food was well above average.
My husband and I had eaten at Cafe Panache in the past and had enjoyed the restaurant. On this particular evening we were dining with another couple. We had a 6pm reservation, the dinner moved along nicely and we were enjoying it up until the very end of our meal. At around 8:30 we had paid the check and were finishing up our wine and one remaining dessert on the table. The manager walked over to us and simply said "our next reservation is here". We were all stunned, we had never been to a restaurant where we were basically told to leave. We had a 6pm reservation, no where did it state it was a 6pm "seating" where we expected to have a firm time to end our dining. This left us with a poor taste in our mouths and we will not be returning.
Another excellent dinner at one of our favorite restaurants!
Everything was great.
Overall the food was quite good except that the rolls had an unpleasant after-taste.
The fillet mignon was good and well prepared.
The venison was generous, tasty, and well prepared, however I think Cafe 37 does it even better.
Always appreciate a very good BYO restaurant.
One word. Superb. Has few peers in area. Should be at top of Open Tables rankings. Any less a disfavor to your patrons
Turning out top notch cuisine for years...a "foodie" destination. Duck is always sublime.
Elegant cuisine and fine service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
The food was delicious. The next time we go I will try to reserve a table for 2 with more privacy. Many of the tables for 2 were too close together.
Sal was excellent!
Cafe Panache is an amazing, intimate restaurant. Food quality is unbelievable and portions are the perfect size!
Haven’t been here in years but so glad to be back Great service friendly waiters excellent food, had comfortable beautiful space.
My favorite restaurant. As usual, the food was excellent.
