Best French food in Charlotte. Good atmosphere with excellent food and service. The crepes with crab & lobster best to date and wife enjoyed Margarita pizza. Jivar's sevice was perfect. Come early, come often.

Service is always woeful and in that way, quite authentic! Our server didn't offer to top off our coffee nor did he refill our water carafe. He would disappear for too long between visits and would forget what we asked for the last time he was at our table. It always feels like the servers have another job to do and that customers aren't a priority. Food is usually good, but sometimes it's obvious the dishes were ready too far apart to each other, so one might be warmer than the others. And yet, I keep returning, though it's not usually the first or second place on our list! I like the menu well enough for brunch, the atmosphere usually has a nice buzz of activity and the location is convenient for me. Maybe one day the service will improve.

The food is excellent. But they were understaffed on Friday night and we waited twenty minutes before they even offered us a cocktail. When the waiter did show he kept making excuses even after I said it was fine and this is the wine I want. Service was not good all evening. And it is loud. Too many tables in two small a space. The food is good though. If you don’t mind not being able to talk, it is worth going there.

Scrambled eggs were way over cooked and tough. Not good; didn’t eat them.

Great dinner for a girl's night. The brie appetizer was just enough for the four of us to share for a light starter. Several ordered the trout entrée and one had the shrimp and artichoke crepe. All were delicious! Great service ... quaint spot ... highly recommend!

Quite an enjoyable evening. They were kind enough to seat me upon arrival even though our whole party wasn't there...arrived 15 minutes later. Service was excellent, food well prepared to your request...I asked for a rare steak and got it while the other gentle asked for his salmon to be cooked pink ( medium rare). Was luck that evening all bottles of wine were half off not just a select few. The waiter noticed this after presenting the check and made the correction when he returned for the credit card payment with out me having to inquire. Will return again .

I usually provide this location as an option when I have business meetings and want to give guests solid options, accessible places, and a proven menu. Glad lunch reservations are possible. Appreciate the reception staff being attentive to members of parties who arrive at different times. Welcoming. Sensitive to the need for well-timed lunch hours.

As we've come to expect, the dining experience at Cafe Monte was a total hit. The food was excellent and the service from Lisa W. was great. Monte' has quickly become a reliable favorite for us.

The door was excellent, served nice and hot. Our waitress was outstanding, very attentive but not overbearing. Unfortunately I don't remember her name. The one downside to the evening was the music. Too loud and intrusive. I would suggest the restaurant return to low canned music.

Cafe Monte is a go to spot for us. We enjoy the casual atmosphere and the solid cuisine. This visit was on a Friday evening when they have live music. It really adds to the ambiance. We started with a beet salad. I had the mussels which are always terrific. My wife had the French Onion soup which was good, but the portion size has shrunk. It was slightly larger than thimble. The service and timing was good. We were never rushed, and had time to enjoy our cocktails before ordering. We will return and recommend the restaurant.

Love the menu. Duck Confit and Shortibs are tops. I believe our servers name was Rachel and she was outstanding.
