5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. On the weekends they have a great three course menu. A must do in Exeter!

“A must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Thanks to TA we found this wonderful restaurant! One of the best that we have eaten in in the US. The ciusine is creative, well presented and delicious. We ate there each evening on our 3 day visit to Exeter and were never disappointed. Not only is the food excellent, but there is a very good wine list. The staff are very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed chatting with Fred, the chef and Jennifer, the owner. They have created a marvellous restaurant, aided and abetted by a very competent team. The place is small so I would reccomend making a reservation. Great food + great atmosphere. For our next visit to CA we will stay in Exeter so that we can again enjoy "Monet"!

“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.
