A word from Monti's Rotisserie & Bar
Located in the Montgomery Village Shopping Center, Monti’s welcomes you with its rustic Mediterranean ambiance. In addition to different nightly specials from the large wood-fired rotisserie, including CK Leg of Lamb and Liberty Farms Lavender Roasted Duck, Monti’s menu offers both small and big plates that feature fresh local meats and seasonal produce. Also available are pizzas, pastas, salads and a selection of items from the raw bar. The well stocked wine cellar offers an extensive selection of wines, all available by the glass and there is a full bar. It’s no surprise that this warm and inviting restaurant has become a neighborhood favorite since it opened in the summer of 2004. Patio dining is available.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Consistently good food in a comfortable environment. We have had better meals here than at restaurants like Michael Mina's, Cotogna and the late Cyrus."

  • "This neighborhood gem of a restaurant serves great food with excellent service. There is one consistent daily special for each day of the week; Wednesday is roast leg of lamb and is an excellent value as well as being delicious. Outdoor dining (with heaters) is generally quiet while indoors the scene tends to be livelier. Good wine list, but not extensive selection. It's a go-to place for us."

  • "I had the coffee braised lamb dish and it was spectacular! The meat was fall off the bone tender, and the cheesey corn fritter was So good! Crispy and flavorful on the outside, oozing with sot cheese. Service was good."

  • "My friends and I reserved an outside table for lunch to watch the music event on the outdoor stage. The music was loud, but that was to be expected from a rock band. Even though the restaurant was extremely busy, the service was outstanding. There is a gluten-free menu if you ask for it. It is a full menu with numerous options. I had the spinach salad that was so flavorful and filling. The server did not rush us through the meal and we sat for two hours enjoying the music, food, and iced tea. I frequently go to Monti's for dinner because of the extensive gluten-free menu, and I was equally impressed with this lunch experience."

  • "This experience was a bit of a disappointment. My "Monti Cristo" was burned, but the kitchen still sent it out. My wife was disappointed with her biscuits and gravy. We both felt let down because, based on recommendations, we had expected something much better. Our server, however, was extremely nice, helpful, and prompt."

  • "The food is usually done well, tasty. Service is good. A bit noisy for my taste but the food and service make up for that."

  • "The needs of our party of six ranged all over the menu, and nothing disappointed! From the succulent raw oysters, to broiled veal chops and wood-fired pizza, to the decadent dessert-- we enjoyed all of the dishes! Our waitress was so well-acquainted with the menu, and her descriptions so detailed, we had a great time ordering and discovering the unique preparations the chef was able to create."

  • "Internet reservations were honored flawlessly. Service was friendly, efficient and attentive. Lunch menu had something for everyone (3 generations). Appetizers were eclectic, from wings to flat bread with hummus, shrimp platter and calamari to roasted beets. Presentation was artistic, portions were generous and service was very attentive from bussers to servers. We'll be back…."

  • "This hidden gem is not far from the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. The staff is very friendly and accomodating; the bartender made great cocktails, and our server was excellent. The menu has a great selection of meat, fish, poultry, and veg choices. We ordered Dungeness crabcakes for our appetizer--the best I've ever had! The beef shortrib rigatoni was rich and scrumptious. For me, it was enough for three meals! Reminiscing about the Monte Cristo sandwich at The Elegant Farmer (1960s-70s Jack London Square, Oakland), my friend ordered their Monti Cristo. Although it didn't measure up to The Elegant Farmer's sandwich, it was tasty nonetheless. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to others."

  • "We went for dinner and I was so impressed by the food. It was some of the best tasting, beautifully presented, hot, plentiful food I have had in a long time. We are frequent diners of all kinds of fine restaurants all over the bay area. Monti's in Santa Rosa was outstanding. Great cocktails too! Outstanding desserts, service could have been a little more energetic but the food and drink more than made up for it. I recommend it highly."

  • "We were having dinner with our don and his girlfriend. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the lamb burger which was outstanding! I highly recommend it. The butterscotch dessert was also wonderful. I gave 4 stars because even though the dinner and ambience were very nice our waitress was clearly just going through the steps. "

  • "Went to montis for my college graduation with family and friends. The waiter was so nice and happy for my achievement didn't mind that one of our guests was late or that we added to our reservation. We had a fantastic meal although would of wanted more French fries with my steak. But the steak and apps and everything else, including the free graduation dessert (warm chocolate cake) were delicious. It was a great way to celebrate such a rewarding day. Def going back. "

  • "It's in a small high end shopping area and very popular. We go frequently for Sun brunch or lunch. Monti's is part of the Stark group of restaurants which includes Stark's Steak House and Bravas, a tapas restaurant in Healdsburg. All good"

  • "Dined outside for dinner this time Spit special was crispy duck cooked to perfection. The pan roasted pork shoulder was juicy and tender We'll be back for sure as we come here often "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I've been to Monti's many times -- it's very good, but always seems to come up short when compared to the Starks' other restaurants. Why? It's little things. For example, a glass of pinot noir was not served in the proper glass, which detracted from the wine. Fingerling potatoes under the leg of lamb got soggy and were less interesting than they might have been. Yes, these are picky points. Overall, the place is good and I'm sure I'll return, but without a lot of effort it could be better."

  • "Mondays have become my favorite day of the week. The special is goat! It's awesome. For the adventurous type, it's must try! "

  • "This is an awesome place to relax and enjoy brunch for Mother's Day! Second year in a row and it was beautiful to sit outside."

  • "The interior of the restaurant is always noisy, but the covered patio (with space heaters) is great for dining out on a nice evening. We started with a glass of bubbly and some oysters, followed by salads and the main course. The Daily Specials are all good, and being a Wednesday evening, it was rotisserie roasted leg of lamb - perfectly cooked and flavorful and nicely paired with a pinot noir. The service was friendly, attentive and timely without being obtrusive. The food was delicious. Overall an excellent experience."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "I recently took clients to lunch at Monti's and it was the first time for both of them dining in Montgomery Village. They were thrilled to discover an excellent restaurant with wonderful service. The lamb burgers and daily quiche special were delicious. They both will be back with plans to order the freshly squeezed lemonade again, and are making shopping plans as well."

  • "Was disappointed with the spinach salad as it was flavorless. The crab balls had bits of shell in them. Hanger steak was good. Oysters were good. Commend the service. It was attentive and warm. "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • " I love Monti's. I had a large group that had anticipated Spring weather, only to have our evening be one of the few this year that we were fortunate to get rain - a lot of rain. Monti's graciously moved our group inside to the large community table and our get together went off without at hitch. Great service, plenty of time to linger, excellent drinks and food. We'll look forward to another time when we can sit out on the lovely patio."

  • "Great food and excellent waitress, Heather. We went for my fiancee's birthday and really enjoyed our first visit to Monti's."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "Monti's place is a gem that's buried inside a shopping center. From small to large plates, each menu item is well worth a try so you'll return many, many times to cover all the bases."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Went to Monti's for Easter Brunch and it was great as always. Delicious specials. Only warning is that their Bloody Mary's are too hot & that's with their normal Vodka. Can't order that again. Their cheesy biscuits are great & quiche was great! "

  • "The wine prices are going up. They used to have lower priced wines,"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "There are lot's of great things to report about one of my favorite restaurants in Santa Rosa. Usually every category would get a 5 star rating from me. This time the entree missed the mark. The calamari starter was tender, light and crispy. The Caesar salad was spot on and scrumptious, but the Oak Roasted Half Chicken was disappointing. I was expecting a crispy skinned bird with some jus of rendered seasoned meat juices. What was served looked more like it was braised or a chicken stew dish. It was in a heavy sauce with a 1/4 inch of grease that had floated to the top. The fingerling potatoes were hard to find in the dark fat laden broth and the whole dish looked like it was attacked by super-sized alien carrots, enough for a family of 4!"

  • "California is suffering with 70 degree days and blossoms everywhere. Darn! Monti's at Montgomery Village in Santa Rosa is the perfect spot for lunch with a group of friends. We enjoyed the Sonoma Restaurant Week 3 course lunch and every dish was spectacular. Our server was the best. He knew what was needed before we knew it ourselves. Our entire group of 6 was delighted. In fact the outdoor dining was so enjoyable we were there for over 2 hours. Heaven on earth!"

  • "We arrived for lunch ahead of the lunch crowd and got an outdoor table right away. It was a beautiful day so the outside heaters were not necessary. I had not seen my friend for sometime and it was nice to get alittle conversation in before the waitress arrived. She took our drink orders and have us some time to figure out the menu before we ordered lunch... We gabbed a lot to catch up on things! Lunch arrived soon after ordering; a humans plate, salad, monte cristo sandwich and sautéed spinach. It was all very tasty! I have been to Monti's many times for staff functions, family dinners, date night, drinks or getting together w/ girlfriends. It never ceases to please."

  • "Food was exceptional. I had the Lamb, and my husband had the duck. We would recommend them and order them again. Our wonderful server recommended the lemon tart. It was a delicious way to complete this exceptional dining experience. We will definitely be returning. Thanks so much!! We loved every minute!!"
