Excellent food. 4 of us got together for a Going Away Dinner to two very dear friends. Could not be any other place better than Cafe Monte for this occasion. We enjoyed delightful music, art, and reminiscence of our trip to Paris. Whoever read this review please try an evening at Cafe Monte.
The waitress Lisa helped to make Mother's day special
Love this place, you can count on the food always being good. Went for Mother's Day, very busy, but still just as good. Highly recommend the quiche and the chicken salad.
I absolutely love this restaurant! It never disappoints.
Mother’s Day brunch with our family.
The beef short ribs was excellent,just perfect!!
The side order of broccolini was a nice green that went well with the meat
My wife's shrimp and artichoke crepe was excellent as well. She really enjoyed the
Honig sauvignon blanc (Napa valley)
The fresly baked bread is always nice while waiting for the main course
Our server was very pleasat and attentive, yet not overwhelming
The evening was a blast,we'll definitely come back..soon
Cafe Monte gets high marks. Escargot, braised short ribs (wife), trout almondine (me), wine and crème brûlée...all sumptuous.-Richard
Cafe Monte never disappoints. Service is almost always very good, drinks are good, their menu items are very tasty - no one ever complains. If you are vegan, they will make you something, but you won't overeat (one of the few downsides).
Nice atmosphere. Good food. Not overly priced.
Great food, service & atmosphere as always. Our go-to special occasion spot! Or anytime!
Always a great place to meet and have a glass of wine. Food is always wonderful. Love the setting :)
The food is always wonderful. The service is always top-notch. We highly recommend.
Came for the Monday night bottomless mussels, which were very good. My husband had the steak frites, which he also enjoyed very much. Nice wine list, and my husband loved the carrot cake for dessert (I was still on round 2 of the mussels!) The cons: Table was VERY small (there is intimate, and then there is just ridiculous). We were seated near the front of the restaurant where my view was of the parking lot - nothing French about that! (and hence, the 2 star ambiance rating) Our server was very nice but slammed. Eventually the hostess realized we needed things and started tending to our table. Overall it was a nice evening.
Cafe Monte is our new favorite restaurant. The food, service and ambience are great, although later in the evening, it gets pretty loud.
Dining at Cafe Monte is always a wonder-filled experience. The food is delectable, the service offered by the talented staff is exceptional. This restaurant is a place to go if you know what you want to eat, enjoy the brasserie experience and are fond of awesomely prepared food!
Lovely, as always. The crepes are to die for. Paul was our server. He was attentive and kept Sunday Brunch libations coming. A good time spent with good friends. Thank you.
Great meals and service Took our time to experience a wonderful dinner with Sean as our waiter.Will be back soon!
Wonderful as usual. Good food, atmosphere, and service.
We always enjoy our meals at Cafe Monte. I had the mixed green salad with grilled salmon last time we visited. It was delicious!
We sat in the back but the music was LOUD. We couldn't converse easily with our guests and asked the waiter to get the music turned down but he didn't. He said others had said the same thing. I spoke with the hostess at the counter and all I got was, "Oh others have mentioned the music was too loud." No result.
One other thing: Waiters should not start clearing the table if a member of the party is still eating. It sends the message, "Hurry up, everyone else is done." Our waiter was new but untrained.
We've been to CM a couple of dozen times but this was a huge disappointment.
Always enjoy dinner at Cafe Monte.
Very vibrant atmosphere yet we could have good conversation. I'm a vegan so they cooked my veggies in olive oil for me instead of butter. There are also some vegan options but I wish there were a few more. I have no doubt it would be delicious! My friend ordered beef and enjoyed her meal. They also have a very good Malbec. Everything was yummy!! Our wait staff was friendly and the service was wonderful! I definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion!
My son and I have dined at Cafe Montes for years and just this visit he pointed out that we have never had a meal that is anything but tasty. Paul always takes great care of us and the manager Rachel was extremely pleasant and very attentive to the diners needs and helpful to the staff.
The house-smoked salmon is particularly good and large enough to share or eat as a main course for lunch. The staff is accommodating and well trained. An extensive menu, and great specials, make it easy for even picky eaters to find something they like. Monte is truly a neighborhood gem, no matter where you live.
Monte's is always one of our favorite to go places for good food, good service, and cozy atmosphere. Monte has a gem here.
This restaurant is always great. Delicious food and friendly, thoughtful service. I do wish it wasn't quite so loud but other than that, I am a big fan.
Friendly staff and the food was delicious. Parking can be an issue during busy times but it’s worth the extra effort.
The ambience was wonderful. Reminded me a bit of some of the French restaurants I visited in Paris. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We will definitely be back!
Always a great lunch spot. Love sitting outside on a nice day. Parking can be tight findin a spot but that’s the only negative.
Very good service and food!
Eggs were cool, but that in my only complaint. That has never happened before. I’ve been many times for brunch
Love the place.
Sunday brunch outside. Food was very good but Luke warm.
Even my cappuccino. If you can't get the food out hot to those sitting outside you should not have outside tables. Smoked salmon was excellent. Beignets more like a homemade donut but good. Will go back. Nice atmosphere for a.sunday brunch.
One of our favorite waiters is Paul! We love dining for breakfast - never a disappointment!
The service was excellent. Seating was comfortable and conducive to conversation. The bread, soup, and beverages were outstanding. The only minor shortcomings were that both the trout and the salmon dishes were overly salty, and the carrots that accompanied the salmon were too hard to easily cut.
Everything was excellent.
Café Monte has always made for a great evening. The blackened swordfish has always been a "go for" dish and has always been great. Caesar salad is the best in Charlotte.
Family all went to dinner at Cafe Monte. They had something for everyone. Great service, not loud and food was very tasty.
I have dined here many times with groups and just the two of us. I have never been disappointed with my meals or the service. It is always an enjoyable experience whether I order my favorites or try something new.
This is one of my "go-to" restaurants.
