I had a wonderful dinner with friends at Bistro Monet. The service was truly excellent the entire evening. We felt relaxed and enjoyed the experience very much. I had the roasted cauliflower soup, which was just delicious. My entree was an expertly cooked mahi mahi special, served Basque-style. The rest of our table enjoyed some classic French dishes, like steak... More

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for years. It's a bit pricey so it is in the special occasion category for us, but when those birthdays, anniversaries, holidays etc roll around this is where we most often go. We have never been disappointed in anything we have ordered, and have ordered from the regular menu, the... More

A pleasant surprise! The food was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The menu represents an expected array of French cuisine including escargot, cassoulet, steak frites. The chef is from France and clearly takes pride in getting it right. We had a wonderful prix fixe Valentines menu with roasted red pepper soup, crawfish tart, boeuf bourguignon & grilled shrimp with risotto. Our... More

We went to this little restaurant with some good friends -- one of whom is actually a professional chef, her husband is a wine connoisseur. There is nothing like going to a restaurant with pros, especially when they are known by the kitchen staff. The service was exquisite -- but it wasn't just that we were known, I could see... More

My husband and I went for restaurant week to try something new. We shared the Classic Cassoulet. The lamb chop was tough and flavorless, the duck was good, and the sausage was poor. The decor is very out dated and it felt like we were invisible. I had coffee to drink when we first sat down. The cup sat empty... More

We have been here many times over the years, usually for special occasions. They do have great specials that are very reasonable, however, Mother's Day being one of them. The chef is a very friendly guy and we have had the same waiter for over five years; we always have a great time. Occasionally a dish can be a little... More

It was a wonderful experience. The food was excellent. The staff is superb. The ambiance (even with children ... our child included) was fun,... More

This a true gem for a wonderful dining experience. From oustanding appetizers, to outstanding special, the Vichyssoise was truly outstanding. The entrees are excellent with great variety. The desserts are outstanding as well. A very good wine selection. The staff is attentive and Chef Michel is a wonderful host as well as chef. This is a place for a special... More

Went to Bistro Monet for my birthday. Everything was excellent as usual. Crawfish appetizer special was fabulous as well as the short rib ravioli. Make sure you save room for the salted chocolate caramel tort. To die for and there is enough to share. Love the atmosphere, love the service. One word of note: the service is more like a... More
