FANTASTIC!

I have been to Bistro Monet several times. The food is always fantastic and the chef is top notch. There is a ton of wine options. Definitely order the ravioli - is it so rich, but SO good!

My wife and I literally moaned through our meal. The wine was a perfect compliment. The servers are all well educated in their craft and wonderfully attentive. In two visits we have enjoyed 4 entrees, 4 appetizers, 2 desserts, and two different red wines. All were Fabulous!!

The 5 star chef pretty much lived up to expectations. Braised beef ravioli appetizer is a must - most of us felt this could and should be an entree. Usually comes with three ravioli but a fourth can be added. Asparagus and Brie salad was excellent. Esgarot was excellent. I wouldn't order the Caesar salad again. The cassoulet was great... More

Had dinner at Bistro Monet with my sister while visiting. The soups were great (I had the vichyssoise with a few shavings of avocado) and our main courses were excellent as well. The waiter was attentive and not over-bearing. The waiter also happened to have been a former student of my sister and he retained a lot of her class,... More

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
