Diner Reviews
  • "A bit overpriced for the quality of what you receive. But still a great local place for locals and the owners have a great relationship with their regulars and thank you as you leave. For owners in their 80's that was pretty cool."

  • "Great Food, Excellent. Service. Had a deep bar with premium spirits. I was only expecting a sit down dinner with my friends, but on Saturday's they do have an in house band and dance floor. Planned good music and the dance floor was hopping. A nice older sophisticated crowd."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "They have made little or no changes to this place in 25 years when it used to be Todd's. The meat was OK but it was not top quality. I paid $ 54 for a bone-in filet which was way overpriced. You are better off at Flemings a mile North of Monty's."

  • "I have been to Monty's several times and it hasn't dissappointed. Love the deep fried pickle chips. Steaks and side portions are huge, and all our steaks were cooked perfectly. The drinks were strong, which was ok for me, but too strong for my GF, even after they watered it down. Great food, and we had a good time with friends."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We go to Monty's every few months. The steaks are amazing and the seafood particularly good. The service is always careful and attentive. Very "old school" and we like it that way. There is a bar scene in another room with sports on the TV but it never intrudes."

  • "I bring both business meetings and dates here. The service is always phenomenal...It's a tad bit on the expensive side, but well worth it."

  • "Wonderful steak and seafood location. Friday and Saturday nights always have a great band with dancing. Have been there on several occasions and have always had a great dinner with a fun night!"

  • "We ate at Monty's for my wife's birthday. As soon as the server knew that it was her birthday, she kept making references to her birthday and made her feel extra special. The service was outstanding, as was the food. Although we have gone to Monty's for years, we seem to forget how good it really is. We will be back sooner this time!!!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We've been eating at Monty's probably since they opened. Tonight, the service was incredibly slow. We waited nearly an hour for our salads to arrive (and that was after inquiring about them) and then again nearly as long for our entrees. Not once did our server ask how we were doing or apologize for the delays. Even the owner was standing in the doorway next to our table and never checked with us. That being said, the food was outstanding tasting, but for $180, it should have been served timely."

  • "Outstanding meal and top notch service! Thank you to our server, Madonna and staff. Will definitely return!"

  • "We love going here after pilates. Gina in the bar area is the best you can get. She remembers us, most of our drink orders and specific dietary restrictions."

  • "Booked this for a Valentine's dinner and it was such a disappointment. The fried chicken was overcooked and flavorless. The filet was fine but flavorless. No substitutions are allowed (not everyone likes peas.) The only positive was our waitress. She was great. Did not know valet was the only option. A valet attendant tracked me down en route to the entrance, very embarrasing. Lastly we were clearly 20-30 years younger than the average age of the crowd. Will never be going back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was excellent, and the service was spot on. Wine list is extensive, but seating tended to be somewhat crowded."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Waitress was awful. Could not find a bottle of wine and sommelier never came over to talk to is about it. She was short and not helpful."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We haven't been there in a while, but we were pleasantly surprised that it was very good. Went there for years. Owners are on top of everything. Mingle with the crowd. Personal touch, but not overly nice. Noisy as was a holiday. Every table taken"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I wish I lived closer and I would visit more often. We only go through Woodland Hills a few times a year but always stop at Monty's for dinner or drinks. Great atmosphere, amazing food, we recommend!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I am trying to like this place, but somehow it doesn't cut it. The crowd is mostly well-to-do people from the West San Fernando Valley cities. The valet parking is like a luxury car dealership. Patrons are outdoing each other who gets the best car driven up by the valet and with the youngest girlfriend to fit in it.. Food: rather mediocre. It is supposed to be a traditional steakhouse, but surprisingly the steaks are not prime quality. My husband and I spent New Years Eve there. The filet mignon was sub-standard; my husband left half of it on the plate. Cocktail: neither the waitress or anybody at the bar knew what a Mint Julep was. ..in a traditional American restaurant? Management is very nice and accommodating though."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "This is the best steak place in the Valley by far. The service, food, and drinks are unbelievable and worth every penny!! You have to go and experience it for yourself."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "A real neighborhood feel and comfort. I prefer it to other steakhouses in the area and feel I always get more personal service."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I have eaten at Monty's many times and was excited to introduce my friends. $300 for a meal that was average at best, embarrassed because my friend were upset that we all way over paid for sub par steak house! I would highly recommend to go spend your money else where"

  • "Classic old-school dining. Penny was our server, she is really great so ask to be seated in her area!! The steaks are always very good,the fries always cooked properly, the drinks always made well. I tried the fried chicken. The chef was kind enough to accommodate my request for only certain pieces at a nominal $3 up charge. I haven had fried chicken in years. So between the excellent preparation and the anticipation of having it, the experience was excellent. The peas that came with the chicken are probably from a frozen bag, and the mashed potatoes lacked flavor, very very bland. Can't say that I enjoyed the garlic mashed potatoes at all, and would not order them ever again here. Stick with the fries. Oysters were PLUMP, FRESH, YUM."

  • "My guest tells me his rib eye steak was one of the best he's ever had, my fish was very good"
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "We go here fairly often and always enjoy our evening. This time our server was the best we've ever had. When I complimented him to the maitre d' on the way out, he smiled and said, "He's one of our best assets." I thought that was a nice way to acknowledge my comment. One aspect we particularly like is that we are never rushed. My companions like to linger over every course, from cocktails to dessert. We can dine at our own pace in complete relaxation."
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "It was a rare Friday as everyone was still out of town from the Holidays and we enjoyed a very quiet meal with our daughter and 3 month old baby. A great and friendly waitress made the always great food even better. Its hard not to fill up on appetizers,especially the brussel sprouts which are amazing. Salads were very fresh and steaks were scrumptious."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Food was good, I had the Ahi which was actually very delicious. I had ordered the Halibut but was informed that they were all out when I placed my order. Plates were not too creative but definitely tasty. Nice, relaxing "old school" vibe."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Family dinner ruined by seating two loud, abusive women who were allowed to smoke on patio near the dining room door. Manager was no where to be found and poor server kept trying to reach him by phone. We've been going here for over 20 years,,and would never go back."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Overall, this place isn't bad but it's overpriced relative to other prime steak houses in the area (Ruth's Chris and Arnie Morton's, specifically.) For about the same money, the food, service and ambiance are all just a little better at those other restaurants. Monty's portions are huge which helps justify the price but I'd still probably opt to go somewhere else. When it comes to quality food, sometimes less is more."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Love Monty's! Have been going here since I was a kid and still enjoy my favorite the filet with the Italian topping. It is so good plus the London chips are terrific. I really like the brussel sprout appetizer too."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "Very well prepared - side dishes large portions and very tasty. Definitely a steak house you do nopt want to miss"
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "In this part of the Valley, and in LA in general we certainly have no shortage of steakhouses to choose from. Although some others close by may be newer, or hipper, as far as I am concerned Monty's is consistently the BEST steak around. Owner Michael has taken the restaurant mostly over from his father, and taken it from a really good place to a really GREAT place. The bone in steaks are better than ANYWHERE. The sommelier is also a cheese expert and I highly suggest trusting her. Maybe the decor is a little "old school" and maybe part of the crowd is older, but there is a reason why people have been coming for years. I am sure that in 20 years I will be one of those "older folks" still coming for great food and drink."

  • "This restaurant has been in business at this location for years. The atmosphere is outdated. Dining , bar and dance floor areas look like something from the 70's .There was a live band playing in the bar which makes that a unique feature these days. All in all I would go back again. Food was ok but service was even better. Our waiter was terrific."
