I've been to this place many times. Always treated like a royalty. The food is consistently amazing. If the weather is pleasant - ask to be seated on the patio. Great experience!

Duane and Elva were married here on January 25, 2009 and its was by far the most unbelievable day of our lives. Larry and staff are scholars at what they do....starting with the decor to the food and most importantly the service exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend CAFE MATISSE! Bravo!!!! I would like to thank everyone there for making our day so special. John, what a voice your the best, thank you for those beautiful songs. I will remember them for the rest of our lives. Larry, what can I say, everything you did made our day happen. Thank you a million!! Love you guys!

The combination of ingredients used to prepare the amazing cuisine served at Cafe Matisse, is not only worth every penny spent, it is surely to be one of the most unforgettable dining experiences you've ever had. With a friendly and wildly talented staff and charmingly eclectic decor, this gem is one of the top restaurants, if not the top, in NJ and quite possibly NYC, too!

This place is a little bit different, it's BYOB and is a little pricy but worth it. It's wonderful in the Spring & Summer you can sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.

This place is a tiny store front, but the interior and the food makes it feel like you are hiding out in a fairy tale. It is expensive, but the gourmet chefs (especially the pastry chef) make it worth every penny.

This place is really great. It is unique in that there are no app's just meals and they are served as 3-5 course meals. Just enough food to fall in love with each dish. Keep in mind the portions are small and the bill can get steep if you like to eat a lot. The outdoor garden, service and decor make this place truly amazing.

Enjoy

We had dinner here last night and we were very impressed. Me girlfriend and I have lived in NYC for the past 7 years and love new dining experiences. The setting here is amazing and the back garden is impressive. In addition the wait staff was extremly good.

The food is very tasty but you need to know that the menu is set up as a price fixe. The portions are very small but extremly flavorful. If you like to sample various dishes you will love this place. We started with Tuna Sushi which was served over lump crab and cold seasme noodles (excellent), followed by a seared jumbo scallop over black sticky rice. We went on the try 2 more dishes and I highly recommend the Lamb which is served with spicy sausage. The dessert is also excellent.

Overall we loved this place. If you like high end food, and a veriety of flavors this is the place. If you like large portions and over stuffing yourself pick another place. The pricing is good and we spent $120 for the 2 of us thanks to BYOB.

Larry & Peter have done an outstanding job with this little tiny restaurant. The decor is out of this world and the food is fabulous. Their menus changes with the seasons and there is always something new to try when eating there. They have indoor and outdoor seating which is again fabulous in the spring-fall. They are alittle on the pricey side $65 for 3 course meal but it is well worth the money. 2 thumbs up!!!

Editorial from

Everything in this restaurant is influenced by the bold artwork of the master painter Matisse, from the decor to the dining. The seasonal grazing menu---which is the only menu---starts at $60 for three courses and goes to $75 for four and…
