“Love the outdoor space”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Prior to them adding the outdoor dining I really felt this place was rather "snooty" but with the addition of the outdoor space it seems lighter. The food is average/good but the romantic flair makes it worth it

“The Perfect Place for any Occasion”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The Grand Cafe offers old world charm & hospitality while delivering a meal worthy of the finest restaurants in NYC or Paris. Desmond and Alice Lloyd know the hospitality business and have a great staff that makes every occasion very special. The food is off the charts. As we have become regulars, we stopped making up "occasions" to go and make it a point to get there once or twice a month. The small bar is a delightful place to meet for a drink prior to sitting down. The City took down the municipal building next door and turned it into a lovely park. In turn, the Lloyd's have upgraded their outdoor dining area (the Grand Allee). It is the best place in Morristown to have beautiful open-air dining experience.

“Charm, Elegance, Romance”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

How wonderful that there are still old style dining establishments with beautiful, delicious food served in a quiet, elegant environment by a wait staff that is clearly a cut above any in the area.
For a quiet romantic evening, skip the tiny bar (although it's fun) and go right to the table with your significant other. You'll find the waiter efficient and unobtrusive. The food is excellent and beautifully presented - cooked to perfection.
The tables are spaced so that you can have your very own conversation, without benefit of listining to those of others.
Parking is always an issue in Morristown, so just give it up and park in the lot just about a half a block down the street. Don't let a little thing like that minor inconvenience stop you from enjoying the best meal in town.

“Service is good but food is disappointing”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We went to the Grand Café for our anniversary and we were dissapointed. The staff are friendly and courteous but the dining room feel stuffy and in needs of updating. It is also very noisy as the table are quite close to each other. The food was not very sophisticated, the scallops were swimming in butter, and the liver was very tough. We found it very pricey overall for what it is.
