Great atmosphere and wonderful food

Outstanding food. Beef Wellington in a small town area is rare to find, and this was delicious. How did Exeter get so lucky?Menu has wide range of foods for most all tastes, and not just the usual steak or seafood options. Creme brûlée was also excellent.

On our way to the Sequoia National Forest we spent the night in the quaint village of Exeter, CA. We selected Monet's for our evening meal. The food was delicious served with a wonderful glass of Reisling. The staff was very considerate and efficient. Highly recommend.

One of the best restaurants that I have ever ate at. I have traveled all over the world and could not believe when we were taken to this quaint little restaurant. We were told we would have private dining and when I walked in could not imagine walking through the restaurant, through the kitchen to our own private bristo room.... More

Stopped by Monet's after learning about it on Trip Adviser and were very impressed. As others have indicated, the Lavender Brie was wonderful, as were the crepes and salmon pizza. The atmosphere was great, as it's a small and convivial restaurant with a great crowd. Because it was crowded, we sat at the bar and talked with Jennifer, the owner,... More

After reading the reviews here I decided to take my wife to a surprise dinner location. We live in Hanford and when she saw that we were heading to Exeter she was really lost on to where we were heading to dinner and then...... Surprise! First words out of her mouth were, Wao! she never thought she would see such... More

My collegue and I had dinner here and enjoyed every morsel. We had the side salad, the ravioli with salmon and the lavender cheesecake for dessert. The service was prompt and the food was so good that we returned the following night. We had salads, the baked brie and pear, and the chicken and mushroom crepe. Once again the food... More

I have been at this restaurant at least 3 times. Food was good but I was very disappointed with the escargots appetizers this time. No flavor at all! Michelle was very nice as always but the restaurant seeks for more space. It can be very uncomfortable the lack off space at the restaurant since many people waits next to your... More

Monet's was recommended to us by our B&B owner (Monica @ Wicky-Up Ranch). We were not disappointed, there was a lovely atmosphere in this intimate restaurant, the staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was excellent.
