We had a another very enjoyable night. Had requested a table out of the way in order to hear conversation better. The request was granted. Thank you. The mussels and frites were wonderful as was the service. We love Monday nights at Cafe Monte!

First time there. Had a reservation but was slow to be seated due to existing party remaining at the table. Service, quality of food, presentation and environment were all excellent. Very busy during Sunday brunch hours. Don’t be a walk-in, make a reservation. Try the Crab Cake Benedict. Will return !

Love the food, great waitstaff. We were seated in the back corner of the restaurant (loved the location). It was very hot back there. I noticed this the last time we were there as well. FYI.

This was for our anniversary and we always have a good experience when we eat at Café Monte. Amy, our server was very good, the food was good, and we did not have to wait for our table. What more can you ask for? Stephen Spada

I ordered the eggs benedict and I had to send it back twice because the egg wasn’t runny at all. It was a real pain having to pay for food that wasn’t made correctly and having everyone finish their meals before I even began. Would not recommend.

Our meal was very good, as always. However we ordered Beef Wellington and was given Beef
Short Rib Bourguignonne . The waitress offered to change it for us, since we started eating it we did not want to wait for another meal to come.

I really enjoyed my lunch. I was catching up with a friend and could actually hear the conversation! The service was excellent with our waiter being attentive but not overly so. The food was delicious and I appreciated the willingness to work with us due to some dietary restrictions. The only whoops was the coffee...it wasn’t very hot to begin with and by the time I added cream, it was room temperature at best.

As always, food and service are great. You are greeted with a smile and whatever you choose is delicious. I had the fruit de Mer omelette. Yummy. But I do wish they would bring back the cushions for the seats.

I order the steak dish whenever I go to Cafe Monte. The frites were way overdone but I did not want to wait. Just thought I would mention. Other than that, it was a good dining experience.

A friend and I meet at Cafe Monte once a month for Mussels Monday and we enjoy scrumptious mussels along with a great glass or two of wine. Delectable desserts top off our evening.


At other times, I enjoy lunch or dinner with personal friends or with a group of friends who also love Cafe Monte!

Two words - nothing special.

Made a reservation for my wife's birthday. Stopped by the day before to check on the reservation and make sure they knew it was for a special occasion.

The waiter was surprised when he brought the dessert menus and I mentioned why we were there.

I understand restaurants don't always do anything for birthdays, but I thought they might do SOMETHING. When we talked to the manager as we were leaving, all we were offered was a weak apology and a shrug of the shoulders.

Food was decent, but nothing special. Also, at 6 on a Saturday evening, they were already out of 3 desserts.

Won't be going back.

We took my in-laws to Cafe Monte to celebrate their 74th wedding anniversary. The staff was extremely attentive to their special needs. They felt very pampered. Food was as wonderful as the service.
