I am a picky diner, like the food done as it should be, delivered to your table as it should be, and eaten in an environment which is conducive to a good dining experience. I receive all of these except the noise level is a little more than I prefer. I always enjoy dining here and have eaten here so many times I know some of the staff.

It was very good. We dine here often and the servers are usually friendlier but she was certainly fine and we had no mishaps. We ate outside next to the Eiffel Tower structure with greenery and were continually swiping at gnats, next time we’ll avoid that table.

We were not impressed with Cafe Monte at all. The crab cakes were ok at best, and my wife essentially had cream soup and some crepes. The shrimp was not even seasoned for the crepe dish, and we had dirty glasses served with our mimosas.. Will never go for brunch again, can't really comment on the dinner experience.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Cafe Monte. We have been there many times for lunch but this was our first time for dinner. The restaurant was very busy but our service and food were excellent. The live group was a nice touch to add to the ambience of a Parisienne Bistro.

Always enjoyable however, this was the first week-end of full-capacity allowance after CoViD and it was a late lunch. Maybe they were understaffed. Food was not very hot. Mimosa was almost room temperature. Same for water, so I asked for ice. Ordered coffee at the end of lunch and it was not fresh. We were not offered a refresh of coffee or I might have re-ordered from the barista. It was also shift change and we felt the need to settle the tab while we were still chatting. We were encouraged to “take our time” but our server would be leaving. There were open tables, otherwise we would have finished more quickly. We will go back. It’s a great little Sunday brunch spot. Very glad they survived the pandemic! Constructive Criticism
