We frequent this restaurant, never had an issue with making a reservation. Made a reservation for lunch today and it was awful. 12:30 lunch didn’t get seated till 12:50, could not enjoy my lunch or my company because I had to leave at 1:30. Just had dinner there this past Friday night for a party of 8 and did not have an issue. Sorry but when you make a reservation for 5 people, that table should have been reserved

We have been to Cafe Monte several times and really enjoy this little place. The food is always very delicious. When the coffee is fresh, it is amazing (that is my only "complaint"--a couple of times even during busy hours, the coffee hasn't been great...but they are quick to replace it with a fresh cup if you ask). We'll definitely go again.

We love Café Monte ! It is hard to select an entrée because everything is so good. I highly recommend the Vegetarian Crepe, the Roast Chicken and the Strawberry salad. I must make an effort to order some different entrees. The service is impeccable--attentive but not intrusive. All the servers are polite and helpful, particularly Jan, who is very charming. We will be back again, and again.

We had lobster salads with champagne vinaigrette. Food was terrific and the service is always wonderful. We were there at 10am, so not crowded. Perfect time to go so you can talk and get business done. Really enjoyed this brunch.

Had an excellent experience at this restaurant. Our server Sean make sure that we were well take care of. We initially were seated at the bar and ireceived one of the best margaritas I have ever seen prepared. As for food I had perhaps the best beef Bourgonione I have ever tasted in my life. No kidding. My wife had an excellent New York strip and we both shared a wonderful crème brûlée. I highly recommend this restaurant.

It was Saturday night and we had Beef Wellington. I have not had this dish in a long time. The beef was a perfect medium rare. The crust crispy and everything was perfection. Our wait person Sean was fantastic and recommended a delicious wine that complemented the Beef Wellington perfectly. For dessert we loved the Beignets!!
Also a great menu, service and atmosphere!!

Great food and experience. Comfortable, laid back atmosphere. Service has been consistently attentive, upbeat and friendly. Gave me the assurances I needed to be sure my meal would be prepared to accommodate dairy and gluten allergies. Server was fantastic (should have gotten her name!!). Would definitely recommend.

At the last minute my friend canceled on me, so I decided to go to dinner by myself. I sat at the bar and the staff took exceptionally good care of me. I felt comfortable, well taken care of, my taste buds were happy and I enjoyed a lovely Saturday evening. Thank you to all the staff at Café Monte!

The food is always very amazing and delicious howeverthe service was above and beyond. If you ever go there ask for Jenny because she is amazing. We both ordered a salad and somehow the dressing didn’t overpower it and it tasted so good. My daughter and I shared the fondue which only comes with bread ... So we always have to pay for apples to be added . I think that might be something that should be just included all the time. Then we split a chicken and mushroom crêpe which is just the best comfort food. And don’t forget dessert because the eclair Was to die for it was made homemade in house

We love going on Friday night for lobster. Having lived on the South Shore of Long Island and having spent time in New England I have to say Café Monte does one of the best broiled lobsters ever and at under $40 for a lobster of 1.5 lbs it is a bargain. Last year in Connecticut they wanted over $45.00 and we were on a bay where they catch them.

Love Cafe Monte. This was an early fri night reservation of 6pm. They were out of 2 wines we asked for. This is not the first time this has happened. Otherwise, we love Cafe Monte and Ive taken people there twice this week! Please do a better job of ordering wine!!
