Being French and living in NJ, I always wanted to try one of Phyllis French restaurant. Restaurant La Minette was my first choice based on their menu but couldn't get a reservation for the time we wanted so we opted for Beau Monde which is right across the street. My husband started to frown as we got seated and were handed out a menu. Not only was the menu printed in small characters but the table was in total darkness. Had to use our cell phones and glasses to read the menu, not too romantic! The table for 2 was also VERY small and didn't allow for an ice bucket so the waitress left the white wine right on thte table apologetically. The service and the food made up for the original not so good impression.

The atmosphere is what makes the place. Service can be snotty, food is good but not special, and prices are silly for what they are serving. Still, love the outdoor seating and their Bloody Mary's are amazing.

Beau Monde has the best brunch in town and the staff is wonderful. I have never had a bad or even mediocre meal here everything I've had is fantastic. Highly recommended!!

I absolutely love this place! The service is always wonderful, and the food is delicious. I've introduced several people to this restaurant and they all loved it. In warmer weather they do have outdoor seating, and in the colder months a cozy little fireplace. It's a relatively small place, but I've never waited longer than 20 mins for a table even with no reservations on a Friday or Saturday night. You can expect decent sized portions for the price. My favorite is the Chicken, Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Savory Crepe. YUM! Dinner for two (with drinks, an appetizer, 2 entrees and 2 desserts) usually runs about 80 dollars. Definitely try it!

I just tried Creperie Beau Monde for the first time this week and my what a treat it was! I tried one of their soups of the day and then had a banana, nutella and hazelnut crepe to finish it off. My friend had a savory crepe with mushrooms, almonds and swiss cheese. It was ALL delicious! The atmosphere can't be beat. It's has an elegant charm, but is still cozy. I can't wait to go back again and again and again!

I recently had an bad experience at L'Etage. While watching a Martha Graham Cracker performance, the waitress spilled an entire drink on my boyfriend. So, I'm an adult, and I understand that these things happen, and upon receiving our bill, the waitress mentioned that she removed 4 drinks which is great and much appreciated. However, much to our surprise, upon receiving the bill, we noticed that we were still overcharged by two drinks. When we pointed this fact out to the waitress, she deferred to her manager who became quite argumentative. Then, the owner came over, and made the statement "I will take one round of drinks off, but if you say another word, you'll never come back here." I'm not a big fan of confrontation, and I realize that these sort of disputes happen from time to time. But the attitude of the owner was completely out of line.
