We had a great dinner, certainly one of the best during our US trip! Charming, warm, delicious food, everything was great! It's very small, so reservations seem necessary. We were there on a week day in October and the place was full!

I have been coming here for awhile and I have yet to be displeased by anything. I love French food and only some places come close to the flavor and aromas of the country I would love to go back to. The staff are exceedingly friendly and helpful and though I tend to be a picky eater at times, this... More

The chef told us that French food should be simple with many layers of flavor. Our dinner certainly lived up to that goal. I had the French Riviera Crepe that was the best thing I've ever eaten. My husband had the Cordon Bleu Crepe that was loaded with chicken and ham. It was the sauce that made it special, a... More

If you're in the mood for some delicious French Food and fine wines, Monet's in Exeter is just Wonderful. Their 3-Course Menus are fantastic. The Beef Wellington is one of my favorites. Be sure to make reservations though. It gets pretty busy.

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!
