    Cafe Matisse has been our favorite foodie restuarant for the last 20 years. Actually found it by "mistake" when we thought it would be a quick place to go before a concert at the then Brendan Byrne Arena. It is not a "cafe" so plan to spend time dining. We have been many places in US and Europe and the menu is the most creative. Ironically, it is in Rutherford, NJ. You have to be an "adventurous" eater as the former chef Peter and present chef Ryan (welcome and great job) prepare each dish with many ingredients that are blended perfectly. Basically, "NO SUBSITUTIONS". The stafff is ultra accommodating. Overall, one of the best culinary experiences you will have.

    Amazing dinner again. We have never been disappointed. The only thing was flies and gnats while we were outside.

    Highly recommend Cafe Matisse! Personally re: dessert, though delicious would have preferred a lighter dessert ie fruit compote, souffle etc I’m sure Chef Greg could create something special! Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner et Al!! Our server Keith was a delight all making our 69th anniversary a delight! We look forward to next year or sometime sooner! Anna

    Wonderful dining experience in a lovely garden setting. Four courses with three choices each, plus dessert. Food is inventive and well prepared. Not inexpensive but a fantastic special occasion restaurant

    Had an amazing dining experience at Matisse with Melinda as our server. She was an expert and so incredibly helpful. Loved everything we ordered! The chef truly knows their craft. Beautiful atmosphere for outside dining. Can’t wait to go back for another fine meal at Matisse!
