We will return.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTom SwearingenWe live within walking distance, and consider ourselves so fortunate to be close to this restaurant. My wife is gluten intolerant, and Monti's has a separate menu for gluten free items. The gluten free menu is nearly the same as the regular menu. There are so many choices from which to choose. The staff is always pleasant and mindful. The food is outstanding. I just tried a new menu item (halibut), and I'll have it again when I return. Interesting flavors with a combination of chilies and forbidden rice. The fish was cooked perfectly, and just about melted in my mouth! We went there this time to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. It is a special place!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice food, well trainedVery nice food, well trained wait staff - friendly but not chatty. Fireplace lends a nice ambience. I love that you can actually have a conversation in this restaurant. The only bad thing is that their tap water tastes very strange. We told the wait staff about this, and they said to tell the resturant management.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorites.One of our favorites. Can't decide? Let's go to Monti's.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always!One of our favorites! Always comes through with a great experience for a special occasion. In this case, my wife's birthday. I was able to drop off flowers in the morning and have them show up on the table that night. Very friendly and professional staff. The food is always a delight, we plan to attend on Saturdays usually, for the duck.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTried and TrueI can't believe I haven't rated Monti's before. We've dined there countless times! It's our go-to restaurant when we have guests, or when we just feel like going out and having a great meal. Their salads are great. The pasta with short-rib ragout is killer, the pork chop is my daughter's favorite - also one of mine, the hanger steak with truffle fries is awesome and the lamb shanks are perfect. The seafood dishes are excellent and guaranteed not to disappoint! But, my favorite part of every dinner there is oysters on the half-shell with one of their magnificent cocktails. Don't miss dessert - the peanut butter gelato cookie is to die for. Sit at the raw bar and watch the action!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEnergetic is an understatement.When the inside tables are full, "energetic" is an understatement for the noise level. Deafening would be more appropriate. If you want a quiet dinner opt to eat on the patio.
While the food is very good, most times your server has trouble hearing you unless you shout above the din.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSuprise treat in a "mall" settingWe arrived 90 minutes before our reservation time and were still welcomed warmly and seated promptly. Extra bonus was a special Gluten Free menu for GF guests. Not advertised, so ask for it. The food was very nice and decently priced and our server had excellent knowledge of the wine list and pairing recommendations. Flavorful and fresh cuisine. Would recommend if you are looking for a healthy, yet satisfying meal.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and wonderful, friendlyGood food and wonderful, friendly service. My husband wanted a glass of wine with the first course but I wanted mine with the entree and they remembered. We are used to having to remind waitstaff about the wine if we want it served with the entree. Sit outside if possible as the noise level inside inhibits conversation.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe should have stopped atWe should have stopped at the pecan ciminnamon roll and coffee. A meal in itself. We did have brunch and everything was excellent.
We got lost on the way and the manager, Jackie, stayed on the phone with us until we were pointed in the right direction. Our waitress was cheerful and attentive. We will return.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and will come backFirst time there. Nice atmosphere but somewhat noisy. Too cool for outside but will be an option for the spring. Wish they had peeled the spicy shrimp - messy but good. Pork wrap was excellent. Very good deserts. Will return.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
