Quaint French restaurant in cute Central California town. The menu is truly French and truly extraordinary. We've travelled extensively in France and can attest to the quality and creativity of the menu here...just like dining at a small and fine Paris restaurant. Service is attentive and the décor is playful and fun. The town is really cute with murals and... More

Our breakfast at Monet's was very tasty and the food was definitely high-caliber, gourmet food. Also, our server was very polite and nice. She was treating us like we were at a high-dollar restaurant. This was appropriate given the cost of menu items. There were three problems, though. The biggest was that the service was very slow. We were the... More

They had a great wine selection even by the glass~perfect! The server was really pleasant and very thorough checking what was available for me that wasn't... More

Great restaurant and would be good for wine buffs as there was plenty of wine tasting. We enjoyed our meal, the tables are very close together and there were some very noisy locals.

We have eaten here many wonderful times over the past 4 years, but last Monday was the most perfect and amazing evening ever. We had a lovely Zinfandel, a couple of appetizers and dinner. There was live music, happy people and while we enjoyed ourselves tremendously - we didn't break the bank. I had to ask - because we had... More

My first visit to Monet's was fabulous. Couldn't fault it except that the lavender cheesecake that it is famous for wasn't ready so we had to settle for something else. Don't misunderstand-the 'something else' was DELICIOUS. The service was great and all in all it was lovely. Imagine my disappointment then when I rang last week to make a booking... More
