Fresh and Parisian. Make sure to have a reservation, especially for sunday brunch. Don't forget you can't have a Mimosa in NC until 10am. More that one eggs benedict. Try the beignets.

Based on Open Table reviews, I chose to have lunch here with my husband while visiting Charlotte. It was Sunday and the restaurant was very crowded, but they seated us not too long after our reservation time. I had the white bean & tuna over the tossed salad with red wine vinaigrette. It was delicious. I had wanted to order the chicken and mushroom crepes, but was informed by our waiter that they were out of mushrooms. He explained it was because they were closing the next day for a couple of days. I really think they could have planned better considering how busy they were and how many menu items list mushrooms as a ingredient.

This was our 2nd visit and 1st brunch. Big crowd! One kitchen glitch which staff handled very professionally -- in my mind, a mark of a classy establishment. Will go back again and again.

Even more delicious this time. Switched it up from the swordfish, went with the trout. No regrets there! My other half got the beef wellington, which was spectacular.

Another memorable dining experience. We were celebrating my parent's 70th wedding anniversary and everyone there made them feel special. We again requested Sean as a waiter and he went overboard to help us celebrate. Not only that, but there was enough food that my parents (and others at the table) had enough food for another meal the next night.

The food is quality each time but have not had great service. The bartender tonight was very rude and unhelpful - we literally only ordered two drinks while waiting on our table. Also - the menu online is incorrect and has not been updated.

Food was excellent and well prepared....Service was excellent....Seating took a little too long since we had a reservation....but they offered complimentary champagne while waiting, which was nice.
Seating was a bit cramped....and noisy but overall experience was outweighed by quality of food and service. Pricing was as expected.....Dinner a bit high but worth it.
I will go back and recommend this restaurant to friends....i would like to try the Brunch soon.

We like trying new restaurants in Charlotte, but for special occasions or when we have out of town guests who can be difficult to please, we often end up at Cafe Monte & have never been disappointed!

Another victim of success, IMO. Been there a couple of times and made the 40-minute drive a third time for Fathers Day. The appetizer: They were out of the house pate, substituted extra prosciutto for the pate and crackers for the baguette and dumped a bunch of [undisclosed] olives (which I hate) on the plate. Service spotty … but the place was full (and noisy). Entrees were still pretty good, but I'm through going there.
