Stop by Moneys! It is very quaint & charming. The staff really want to please! There is a great selection of wines and her appetizers and entries are sumptuous

While visiting Sequoia National Park and King's Canyon, our host suggested we visit Exeter to get a feel for a farming town and the surrounding orchards. Exeter was only 30 minutes away from Three Rivers, CA (which is near the Sequoia park enterance). We planned the day so we could eat at Monet's which had been recommended. The food was... More

A hidden gem totally worth the drive to Exeter. I love their menu because you can get really nice sandwiches for dinner without spending a fortune, or more upscale dishes for your special nights out. The desserts are amazing and they have a wonderful wine list with many local Central Coast favorites.

I'm a local, just live down the street, but, this place never disappoints! My favorite? I love to gather with girlfriends when they open their doors - 11 a.m. for lavender latte's (although, I don't like sweet, so I always ask for light on the syrup-perfect) & their cheese platter. Such a special treat - and, enough to consider it... More

This tiny little place is just the kind of establishment we are sadly missing back east. We were welcomed immediately and since the proprietors were enjoying a new wine with a regular that we knew we were included without question. We had the clam chowder and the mushroom soup and both were outstanding. I also highly recommend the eggplant Napoleon.... More

I had walked by this place a couple of times, and, finally stopped by for dinner. What a delightful restaurant and bistro. Soft music in the background, an excellent list of domestic and international wines, and an omnivoire's entree list of everything French and American. Service was prompt and sociable. Not a large space inside, however, it never felt crowded... More

We were in the area for an anniversary weekend getaway, and found Monet's through TripAdvisor, so picked it for our dinner. We popped in earlier in the day and got a reservation - it turned out they were only able to get us in at the appointed time because someone else hadn't shown up for their reservation, so they might...

We dropped in for a drink after making a round day trip from Visalia through Kings Canyon and south through the Sequoia NP. Wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent food and beverage selection, and great choice of music. Highly recommended.

We went Friday night 7:30. They were crowded, but took our order right away. They brought our wine right away and dinner came soon after. The sea bass with lemon risotto was delicious. The description was so good my husband and I both ordered it. We have dined at Monet's several times in the past year, and we always have... More

Monet's is a charming local eatery in the heart of Downtown Exeter. We had dinner there on a Thursday night and it was packed. Service was great. I ordered two appetizers as my dinner: French onion soup and Caprese salad. Each could have been a meal by itself-the servings were generous. The best French onion soup I've had. The place... More
