French Italian Cuisine – This is my absolute favorite place!! If you're looking for a quick meal this is not the place. This restaurant offers a comfortable and intimate environment to catch up with your Spouse, family or good friends. Dinner may run about 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on the crowd as there is generally only one courteous and friendly waiter. I'd say that lunch may run about 1 hour. The portions are great... after soup, salad, bread and the meal we often bring home some or most of the dinner (lunch). Hint: try not to fill up on their delcious bread! The price of dinner/lunch includes everything. Enjoy!
SLOW SERVICE – This place has gone from bad to worse - not our first time going there. We went in July for our anniversary, our reservation was at 5:00 pm and we did not get home until 8:30 pm. We had asked numerous times for things and always had to wait, wait, wait. Today we went and had to ask numerous times again and the final straw we had asked 3 times for our check and after 30 min. we finally got it.
Great French food! – Everything was excellent! Great service and nice quiet atmosphere
wonderful little restaurant – I love this place. Be prepared to have a leisurely dinner, and enjoy the food. The soups are always delicious, and if you're hungry be careful not to fill up on the wonderful crunchy-soft baguettes. The house wines by the glass are just great, and a nice little wine list. Haven't ever been disappointed, and although it's a lot of adults, kids menus are a treat too --no burgers or chicken fingers! Teach the kids how to enjoy a nice relaxing delicious dinner!
Excellent service and food. – Try the veal rossinni, to die for... Allow time to enjoy the meal and you'll be back again and again.
They also have an excellent wine selection. Very intimate and has French character.
Far below our expectations – My husband and I tried Cafe Monet, as we are always looking for good dining experiences in Parker. We usually like higher end places for date nights, but also love pizza joints with the kids. We were very disappointed in our meal at Cafe Monet. Starting with the environment, it was empty other than a few tables of older adults. The decor was quite dated, and I imagine its been decades since an update. The booth was like a diner style plastic seat, lumpy and uncomfortable. A few good things: The waiter was nice enough and attentive. The wine list was very competitvely priced with some good bottles (although a short list). However, from the appetizer through the main course, the food was mostly poor, and very salty. The filet and soup were tasty, but everything else, including the veal, "their specialty" was difficult to eat. I am not the type to give a poor review, but this place is not for those used to well-prepared fresh food and warm, comfortable chic ambiance.
terrible food don't waste your time and money. – I don?t know what standard the other people are using to rate Cafe Monet, but I rate it as terrible. My wife and I have eaten all over Europe and never had food that bad. The vegetables were clearly from a can. Service was terrible. My wife is sodium sensitive and she is in bad shape this morning. Her fingers are swollen up like sausages. She lived for 6 years in France and knows French cooking. She was very disappointed. I am still telling her how sorry I am for listening to the people from work that told me how great it was. It ruined our valentines day. I won?t even go into have much it was over-priced for the quality.
Impossible to do any better – I was raised in a very gourmet family. Each member of my family has spent years cooking only the highest quality foods and can spend years perfecting a dish. Our standard for food is nothing less than obscene. Let me assure you, Cafe Monet blew us away. It is true french cuisine with patience and hardwork that you can taste.
The service may be paced, but it is because they want you to RELAXand ENJOY your food. There is no rush, and only a kindly server. This restaurant understands what it means to be "truly gourmet."
The Baguettes are made fresh for YOUR dinner. No one elses. Not prebaked. This is one of the world's most delicate foods cooked to perfection. Make no mistake, the best bread in the United States is served here.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it a 104.
RE: Lentement! – I would have to say this place is very VERY good. While the service may seem slow to us, this is typical of a REAL Frend Resturant. The food is awesome and I would say the time between dishes is just what is needed to allow yourself to actually begin to feel full before you over eat! The chocolate moose is to die for as well!
If you are concerned about getting in and out quickly, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a nice relxing and possibly romantic meal where you can enjoy your food and not be rushed, this is just the place!
Mouth Watering – Not a chain, so don't expect to be rushed in or out. You actually have time to enjoy each part of your meal. I always enjoy the lamb and the soups, and the chocolate mousse. We have made reservations on busy holidays, but can usually be seated on normal evenings.
