“What a wonderful surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

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 wonderful little place so far away from everywhere! During our two week National Park trip (Sequoia, Death Valley, Joshua Tree) this was the absolute best food! Thank you!

“Don't dare to miss it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

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!

“A Crowded Corner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

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 live music ( a solo cellist) which added to our enjoyment of dinner.

This little gem is the place to stop when you're in this quaint little town. Such a beautiful relaxed friendly atmosphere with great food.

“Charming Place to Eat and Listen to Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

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.
