I've been to the Diamond Cafe many times and never had an average meal or sub par service. They treat you like family. The food is always fresh. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.

Excellently prepared food by a fabulous New York chef and at phenomenal bargain price even for this quiet little town in SW MO. You'll be asking for a take-home box and get two great meals for less than the usual price of one! (Only open on Thur, Fri, Sat. Reservations desired.)

While bemoaning the loss of Bierman's Restaurant in Friestatt, Missouri with one of my customers, she said: "If you want a good meal, especially a good steak, you have to go to The Diamond Cafe in Diamond, Missouri". We made the 30 minute drive to Diamond (from Monett) yesterday evening. Nice, clean, pleasant, and staffed by the most friendly and... More

This is one of our favorite places! We are always greeted warmly by the gracious and professional owners. Soft music plays, and the atmosphere is perfect for our date nights! We have tried multiple items on their menu, and have enjoyed them all! Among our favorites are the lasagna and the steaks and the homemade thousand island dressing! Portions are... More

I've been to this delightful little restaurant twice and both visits were delectably fantastic. The customer service is superb. You feel as if you are being welcomed as a close family friend by Allison to her place. She and dining room assistant, Chris, are witty & charming who provide the right amount of attention & care without being intrusive. Their... More

Had a fabulous dinner with family last week! The rib-eye and catfish were the most talked of in other reviews so we were sure to have at least one of each at our table. It was not a disappointment. Personally, I had the rib-eye...and it was outstanding. More wonderful than the food was Alli - hostess/waitress/all around wonderwoman! If I'm... More

It's been awhile since I was there. To bad they are only open 3 days a week. And only for dinner. Other than that the food is very good. And they have very good dessert.

As good as it gets is right. Allison was our hostess, waitress, pastry chef and bar keep (beer and wine only). My husband and I just celebrated our 24th anniversary at the Diamond Café. We were treated like treasured guests. My husband had the rib eye, medium rare with the full-spiced 6-pepper seasoning. I tried it, and it was excellent.... More
