When we checked into our accommodation, within 3 minutes the owner recommended Monet's and it was a highlight of our trip to Sequoia/King's Canyon. Our original reservation was at 7 pm but Jennifer kindly sat us early; she could tell we needed comfort after a long drive. We both had the angus fillet with yukon potatoes and stuffed tomatoes.

We went there for the first time with another couple. Had a blast. Great food. Good music. It's VERY tiny. Absolutely need a reservation, which we had made. $$$$ but worth it! We're moving to Exeter in a month and can't wait to become a regular!

A couple from the UK, We came across this restaurant by chance. On our travels we have eaten in San Francisco, Monterey, Morro Bay , Las Vegas and more and nothing has compared with the quality of food produced at Monets. The staff and owner are really polite, welcoming and knowledgeable of the wine, beers and food on offer. An... More

Thanks to TA we found this wonderful restaurant! One of the best that we have eaten in in the US. The ciusine is creative, well presented and delicious. We ate there each evening on our 3 day visit to Exeter and were never disappointed. Not only is the food excellent, but there is a very good wine list. The staff... More

Used the reviews on TA, and in the evening we found the restaurant, after a long day of driving! Did not think it would be very good! Oh, how wrong I was!! Wonderful vegetarian food for myself, great choices for my partner, and the chocolate cake at the end was absolutely what I needed! Never expected to find such a... More

Came all the way from Ireland on a recommendation and with high expectations. Weren't disappointed. On a very busy Thursday evening a table was somehow found for the four of us (in a private room no less) where we had the most wonderful gastronomic experience. Well done guys!

We were exhausted when we finally found Monet's on a busy Friday night; so that colors my impression a bit. Even though the place looked filled to capacity, we managed to grab a small table by the door. The food and wine came fast and was good French fare. The service was excellent; the owner made the rounds. There was... More

Wonderful good; wonderful music. Great company. Can't beat that. Interesting menu. Traveled to break bread with friends while staying in Three Rivers. About 45 minute drive. Worth the time and fuel.
