We went Friday night 7:30. They were crowded, but took our order right away. They brought our wine right away and dinner came soon after. The sea bass with lemon risotto was delicious. The description was so good my husband and I both ordered it. We have dined at Monet's several times in the past... read more

Monet's is a charming local eatery in the heart of Downtown Exeter. We had dinner there on a Thursday night and it was packed. Service was great. I ordered two appetizers as my dinner: French onion soup and Caprese salad. Each could have been a meal by itself-the servings were generous. The best French onion soup I've had. The place... More

I am truly amazed and impressed by this quaint and comfortable restraunt. The decor was rustic and cozy. The food was so delicious! I had a panini because I couldn't decide. The menu was small, but I was overwhelmed nonetheless so I stuck with something familiar. Its more of a french/Italian fusion menu. We we a little underdressed, not that... More

We tried out Monet's on a Tuesday night and it was pretty good, but the execution definitely could have been better. The service was mixed: there were two servers in the restaurant that evening, and the one who was actually our server was just okay - she was a little cold at times and did not seem genuine in certain...

When I first moved to Exeter, it was so nice to have a special place close by. The food was tasty and the wine and beer selection was pretty good too. Then, we were in here celebrating an anniversary. It was great until a crowd of muckity mucks from town came in. After that, we (and the couple next to... More

If you appreciate carefully prepared and interesting flavors (lavender cheesecake) then do try this tiny treasure in Exeter. French food is usually my pick but Monet's could change all that. Try anything and prepare to smile.

I have traveled around the world always being a good "Foodie" to find new and exciting bites. I just happen to be lucky enough to live in Exeter and have access to one of the best establishments that I have encountered. The menu is diverse enough to come back frequently. The specials on the weekends always have a great choice.... More

As usual, we found this restaurant on the TripAdvisor site. It was very busy and the food was good. The service was very slow and I found the seats uncomfortable.

We had a lovely dinner with our family. Good wine and food in a relaxed athmosphere. Our B&B landlady of the Plantation Hotel advised us to go here.
