Stopped at Ridgecrest enroute to Death Valley and had dinner here. Had an appetizer of scallops and bay shrimp baked in cheese (didn't say which cheese though) as well as chicken with their home-made pesto sauce and layered vegetables (think a vegetarian lasagna sans pasta, though it was topped with Swiss cheese and not French - a bit of an...

Stopped over in Ridgecrest en route to Death Valley. We had a great meal at Mon Reve, I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the food is good quality and good value for money. The chef is from Normandie in France. the vegetables were fresh and well cooked. If I lived here I would be a regular customer. Our favorite meal... More

Authentic cuisine, clever specials, good wine list, and the friendliest service! All this in Ridgecrest too. The price is commensurate with the quality, plenty of other places to go if you want to squeak about expense. Mon Reve is a once a month treat for our family!

We have now eaten here for dinner twice and lunch once. It has been excellent each time. The Filet Mignon is wonderful and our last dinner there, there were four of us who all ordered differently as far as sides, soup, etc. There was nothing that wasn't delicious. You cannot go wrong with this menu. The service is excellent and... More

It was a surprise and enjoyed dinner as we did not expect to find a restaurant of this quality in town. The owner is very friendly while the menu carries typical French brasserie style food. The wine list is not extensive but covers the need of the menu. Overall a very appreciated dinner as food, wine and atmosphere were perfect.... More

The soup had lots of flavor and the expected cheesy christ. The salad was simple but fresh and nicely dressed and surprisingly generous given it's 3.95 cost. My husband shad... More

I have had the pleasure of dining at Mon Reve many times. The food is delectable, the service unique for its intimate and thoughtful care by the hosts and servers. It is always a pleasure to dine there. While I wish I had the room to enjoy the divine desserts at the restaurant, yet taking it home can be the... More

We weren't planning to stay overnight in Ridgecrest, but we changed our plans after finding that a wonderful french bistro was hiding there. And, we recommend anyone who needs to stay within 50 miles of Ridgecrest, consider staying in Ridgecrest and dining at Mon Reve. The owners can explain why they located their excellent bistro in such an 'out of... More
