A European friend and I visited the Cafe for lunch and were impressed with the intricate decor. It is quite a lovely establishment. The food was not spectacular, but more than edible and not overpriced. For the novelty of the ambiance, it is worth a visit.

We are long time regulars at Grand Cafe. That's because we love it. Owner Desmond Lloyd is an always gracious host assisted by long time Maitre D' Walter. During the summer months, there is great covered alfresco seating on a long patio overlooking a small park just off the Morristown Green. A wide selection of small plates to the usual... More

First off we love this restaurant. When I made the reservation they asked if it was a special occasion and I told them it was our anniversary. I like that because that means they care and you may get a little special treatment! Well, we didn't. Unfriendly waiter served me the wrong dinner. We had already been there for an... More

We were here for a dinner that we just loved. The host and hostess are very friendly and beautiful people. We asked to be seated outside. Their outside set up is gorgeous and pretty big. Lovely flowers make the space beautiful and bright. We ordered wine for drinks, seafood pasta for me and chef's special Dover soul for my husband.... More

Hadn't been to the Grand Cafe in many years. Recently met a couple of friends for lunch. I had the Chicken Francaise, excellent, my friend had the Caesar Salad with shrimp and my other friend had the shaved steak sandwich. All three entrees were excellent. The caesar salad was one of the best I've ever tasted!!

First class setting revealed friendly and excellent service...Sadly the food was average at best...Lobster bisque was flat; calves liver was a poor cut, and my request for rare was well done...My wife's tomato/mozzarella appetizer and pasta entrée were average...

My wife and I had a very nice lunch on a sunny day. We had a table on the terrasse that is shaded by some nice vegetation that provides some freshness. Light lunch with salad and club sandwich. Tasty and kind service. Only concern is that there was no beer on the draft but we were said it was going... More

We reserved a table for four for dinner on Saturday night. We elected to sit outside since the weather was warm and nice. Overall, it was very pleasant experience as you would expect from a place with a reputation for quality dining and elegance. We arrived at 7 PM, on time, and our table was ready for us. It wasn't...
