We had a belated Valentine's Day dinner here and really enjoyed it. The lobster salad was excellent as well as the tuna and bronzini. They also have an extensive wine list to choose from. Overall we had a great experience and highly recommend for special occasion.

This place is like walking onto the set of Grand Hotel many decades ago. Just darling. It was really cold that night and we asked to sit by the fireplace, glorious. Real roses on all the tables and our server's beautiful French accent added to our experience. :) I wasn't exceptionally hungry so I ordered the Warm Brie Salad. It... More

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...
