As always, Cafe on the Green was exceptional. I brought my neighbors who had never been, and they were absolutely blown away. The service is always so professional, warm and friendly, and the food is off the charts. I had rack of lamb which was extraordinary. I always love to dine at this fine restaurant, and the prices are so reasonable.

The food at Cafe on the Green was excellent. Both entrees were very well prepared. The view of the golf course, even at night, was very nice. The atmosphere was quiet and elegant.

One of our favorite spots and we return to it for special occasions or a night out. Good to see familiar faces. Food is always excellent, and what we really appreciate is the portion control. And they know how to make a good mixed drink at the bar. Dessert with coffee (I don't know how, but they really make a damn good cup of coffee, which I find more and more rare these days) and sambuca topped off the night. Well done and can't wait to return.

Lovely meal, poor service. Very disappointed.

Never brought bread, despite table being preset with the butter for the bread. Entrees were delicious - Filet with Gorgonzola brandy sauce. Waited 40 minutes after entrees were cleared to receive dessert, which was included in the Prix Fixe meal and had been ordered at the beginning of the meal. Creme Brûlée had to be sent back— it was cold with practically no crust. Felt ignored throughout the meal. Service was not commensurate with the price and ambience. Will not return.

Holiday dining is a real challenge for a restaurant, with high demand and high expectations. This is our fourth year at Cafe on the Green for Christmas Eve, and they handle it all very well. The prix fixe menu gives just enough variety to satisfy most, but keep things flowing. Staff work incredibly hard to provide great service and keep the busy schedule on time. Our lamb chops were not the best, but everything else was just right, from shrimp appetizer to really good carrot cake dessert. We very much appreciate the Cafe being open and doing an overall very good job for everyone. As a result we have hosted private family gatherings and casual dinners there...and we travel from another state to be with family in the vicinity. Thank you Cafe on the Green.

Very nice staff. Had to send my lamb back twice. Noisy. Minimal decorations for the holidays especially outside no lights ! Expensive. But glad they were open as very few places had availability

Cafe on the Green is a guaranteed great meal every time. It’s renovated interior is fresh and updated, the service is always top notch and the prices are in line with other restaurants in the area. Don’t hesitate to try it out.

Went for Thanksgiving. Entrance seemed like a community center. Staff were friendly, but not very attentive. Butternut squash soup and desserts were good. Turkey dinner drab and dry - without much stuffing or gravy. Had to track down server to get some coffee before we finished desserts (coffee was included in prix fixe). Overall, fine, but not fancy or festive or great

Wine mark-up was not too bad. Entrees were good, dessert was excellent. A little noisy as a very large party arrived just as we ordered, but not intrusive.

Visting from out of state, we are pleased to periodically return to the Cafe on the Green as a location for family meals or events. The setting is very nice winter or summer, overlooking the golf course. Staff are unfailingly welcoming and helpful, and the food is consistently good. In an area dotted mostly with chain restaurants, the Cafe offers something different, and does it well.

I would recommend Café on the Green as a perfect spot for lunch on the kind of day it was when my friend and I visited. Not too hot, a nice breeze and some golfers to watch. Service was just O.K. I cannot recall our server asking if we wanted dessert or coffee, but we received the check before we were able to order it. My burger was fine; nothing special. My friend had the chick pea salad with shrimp, which she enjoyed. Our desserts were very good, but when is dessert bad? Overall, it was a nice lunch. Next time, I would order something other than the burger.

Outstanding experience
We took two friends visiting from Florida there for dinner
They were equally impressed
I didn’t realize that Danbury has such a wonderful place. The food and service was terrific
The perfect place for dinner with old friends and to catch up
Environment was quiet and we never felt rushed
They will definitely be seeing us again

I went to Cafe in the Green with my sister and father on Father’s Day and it was a perfect experience. It was a 4 course pre-fixed menu with your options on the first, third and fourth courses. I was unable to eat due to health issues which they were very understanding of. My father and sister loved their food (it looked soooo delicious) and the scenery was beautiful. Our server was gracious, accommodating, and attentive. He deserves the most credit, although everything was wonderful. My sister took the tab since I did not eat, and I was in the industry for 10 years myself so this review should not be taken lightly! Thank you so much!

Food, service, location were just what i was expecting. Our drinks however were horrible. I was so looking forward to your French Martini as it has always been fabulous at your establishment....it was drowning in Chambord and my husband had a gin and tonic and the tonic was flat......we normally would have said something but we were entertaining guests etc....that was the only disappointing part....
