The Grand Café serves French food in Morristown the way it should be done: amongst elegant and classy surroundings. Its interior is tastefully decorated but still very much in the Parisian style. Your hosts, Alice and Desmond Lloyd, will make sure that your needs are seen to so that you can have a memorable experience.

The Grand Café’s menu features both French delicacies and American specialties. Gratinee of escargot, roasted beef salad and lobster truffle macaroni and cheese are just a few examples of the dishes to be found on the lunch and dinner menus at The Grand Café.

This is a throwback to the fine dining just not available anymore. They were on point in every way. Service, food, atmosphere... Grand Cafe has it all. Not a "trendy" night out a "classy" night out.

My wife had a great dinner for Valentines' day. The service was very attentive and the food brought back memories of the old days at the Grand Café. We both had very fresh fish dishes and split the chocolate soufflé. The soufflé in particular was something you don't see anymore and was perfectly done.

Everyone from the manager to Mr. Lloyd said hello during the dinner and they could not have been nicer. We really felt at home here.

Food is superb but the best part of this restaurant is the service is outstanding.
The decor is very dated though.

I hosted a presentation meeting at The Grand Cafe on the first floor. The staff were very attentive to our needs and even help me set up some of tech for the presentation. Food was very good and the menu was diverse enough to cover everyone's food preferences. I'm looking forward to having my next meeting there.

Was very disappointed. I had called and changed my reservation to 5 people with no problem. They had asked if we could come in 15 later as they had several other reservations at the same time. We accommodated. We had to wait for our table anyhow and the put 5 of us at a table for 4. They put two small folding chairs together in one side pinning two of us in and forcing us to try and wrap around the legs. They did this without apology. They didn’t do it to anyone else and the 3 and 4 year olds at the adjacent tables has grown up chairs. It was rather humiliating, my guest said she felt like we were sitting at the kids table in the kitchen.
I’ve been going there for over 30 years and was excited to show this special place to two new friends. Not sure I’ll go back.

Disappointment from what had previously been exceptional experiences. New Year's evening was clearly understaffed and host/hostess preoccupied.

Went to The Grand Cafe to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was a wonderful experience to be met at the door, immediately seated and offered a cocktail. The ambiance was like going back into another place in time, which was so much appreciated compared to the newer restaurants with the "use guys" approach to fine dining. Enjoyed appetizers of Wild Mushroom Soup and Brie Salad followed by an outstanding Duck Breast and Rack of Lamb done to perfection. Chocolate Souffle topped off the meal just perfectly.
A fabulous place to dine for "special occasions"... which I suggest you have one every month.
Best dinner I've had in quite a while, don't miss it.

Four of us ladies had a delightful and fabulous lunch at the Grand Cafe. Each of us had something different and everyone loved their dish. But the desserts were to die for! We will all go back their again.
What a great time we had! A+++

Wonderful food, service and ambiance!!!!!! I can't say enough about what a delight it was to dine at The Grand Cafe. Owners Des and Alice Lloyd are restaurateur extraordinaires. From the moment my family and I walked in, we were treated with such lovely service and attention. Our food was beyond delicious and I can't say enough about the lobster salad and dover sole special - it was to die for!!! The Grand Cafe is truly one of the most special restaurants I've been to anywhere in the world and I cannot say enough amazing things about how special it is to dine there. Truly a pleasure for me and my entire family. Can't wait to go back!

The Grand Cafe is top-notch. It would be fitting to have this restaurant in any major US city, and it would fit right in and be known as A Place To Go. All of the service is outstanding, from the moment you walk through the door. Everyone is pleasant and welcoming and quite gracious. The food choices are very nice, presented well and delicious. All in all, I would very much recommend this establishment.
