Went for a business diner with 30 people. Started with appetizers which were all fantastic. The shrimps were large and fresh and tasted great. The salmon on the crackers was so so good. I cannot remember all that we had but I do remember that they were all so so good. The meal did not disappoint other than the fact... More

Staff is friendly and helpful. The Bronzini, chicken francesse, and 3 mushroom ravioli are excellent.

The Grand Cafe was once a hidden gem in Morristown. It is no longer hidden thanks to the removal of an ugly county office and records building and the creation of a small park, which is now the backdrop for the restaurant's beautiful alfresco dining area. Sitting outside behind the hedgerow, you not only look out over the new park,... More

Came here after work with a few coworkers. The food was excellent, I don't remember the actual names of the dishes we had since we all shared 4-5 dishes but it was lol amazing. The service is excellent, our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu.

I went with a gourmet friend and had a great meal. This place is in its own league and certainly in Morristown area. Classic and great this is for ambiente, food and wine selection. Service was attentive and knowledgeable (and well dressed) and you get a feel that they know what they are doing. So does the chef. We had... More

Exceptional service and very good food for 20 adults and children in the gorgeous private room on the 3rd floor. Walter Hansberry went out of his way to help with the set up.

The owners generally greet diners and the staff is... More

This has been one of my favorites for decades. One of the only places in the area that offers tartare. Prices are reasonable and competitive for the food and service. Preorder the soufflé for the perfect end to an expertly prepared meal. The atmosphere and decor are absolutely lovely. A great place for a business lunch or a romantic dinner.... More

I went to a work lunch at Grand Cafe with my department. We were all excited because of the generally positive reputation of the place as being high-end. The decor was nice and the waiter was very nice (and quite funny as well). Service overall was pretty good. The food, however, was just *okay* but was priced at a level... More

A colleague made a guaranteed reservation for 20, but we only had 14, so it ended up being pretty expensive. We had a private room on the third story that was very nice, lovely woodwork. We had LOTS of passed appetizers that were all very good. There was plenty of staff and service was good. My steak was actually kind... More
