    Very disappointed with Cafe on the Green this time around. We typically go there once or twice a year, usually a special occasion. This time it was Mothers Day. 5 course Prix Fixe menu with arancini to start, shrimp cocktail or penne, salad, main and desert. No champagne included. As we were being seated, we were asked for our drink order. Champagne and mimosas of course. By the time the drinks arrived (2 mins) the arancini was on the table. No plates, just a bread plate with our bread on it. We had to ask for plates. As soon as the last bite was taken, the plate was cleared, the dirty silverware put back on table, and our second came out. Shrimp was served on a plate over fennel, tasted good but poor presentation. Penne was good. The moment that was finished, it was cleared, the dirty silverware put back on the table and salad was dropped. Keep in mind its 5 courses, with two forks a knife and a spoon. After salad, dirty silverware put back on table. Three courses in 20 minutes, we were flying through this service. Then after a 20 minute wait, our mains came out. One was bordering disgusting, another pretty good and the third was the quality we are used to there. At this point, it's half full and more people are arriving, some leaving. After the mains were finished, we waited for clearance. And waited. I shot a look over to the waiter who was just standing nearby for quite a while. Nothing. I motioned for him to come over. Nothing. Finally the maitre d' or manager cleared the plates. And we waited. Baby crying the whole time. Had to be another 20 minutes before dessert came, which was delicious. And another 20 minutes before the check. Very strange experience. Rushed first 3 courses, then over an hour for main, dessert and check. We left baffled and disappointed. Had it been our first experience, it would be the last. I'm hoping this was just an off day.

    We have dined here multiple times. Food is typically very good. We attended New Year’s Eve for their price fixed 5 course menu. We feel there are some areas to improve. Bruschetta was unimpressive, bread with chunky salsa, no cheese. Salad came pre dressed with salted oil and vinegar. For the price, they should offer salad dressing options. Some entrees were excellent (seafood linguini was excellent) and some were ok. Filet Mignons were undercooked and doused with Gorgonzola sauce. I ordered cheesecake for dessert, preferring creamy NY style, which I verified with my waiter before ordering. However, the cheesecake wasn’t NY, it was Italian style ricotta based and grainy. Our waiter was attentive and polite. At times we felt rushed by the serving staff … as soon as a course was finished they were immediately serving the next course. The food could have been hotter and felt mass produced. Normal dinners at this restaurant aren’t like that. It was a good crowd for New Year’s Eve, but should have been manageable for the staff.

    Disappointed from the moment we arrived when the three of the four of my party sat and I was asked if my husband was parking the car. As a single parent and executive I was disgusted by this comment and more so that my children heard it. The service from the majority of the staff, not all, was very poor including having to leave my seat a minimum of 7 times to ask for drink refills, etc. when trying to enjoy a very overpriced Thanksgiving meal with my family was disappointing. The penna vodka was phenomenal, but the presentation was sad as it was basically served on a break plate and referred to as a first course. The filet mignon was excellent, but dessert was cold. I recommend to anyone not looking to enjoy their experience, would like a workout rather than waitstaff and to be offended and experience bias.

    First time here and restaurant was excellent. We both had Veal Sorrentina, one of our favorite dishes but hard to get and even harder to get prepared well. Our veal was tender, vegetables excellent and sauce tasty. House wines good as well. Price point was great compared to others these days.

    Cafe on the Green has always been our favorite restaurant in Danbury. Tonight it lived up to our high expectations. Food and service were excellent. We had our young granddaughter with us who is a picky eater. While there was nothing on the menu that appealed to her, the staff had no problem in coming up with suggestions that appealed to her.
