Fresh ingredients combined with French classics made for a wonderful late breakfast. Decor and French music added to the ambiance.

Wine was delicious, and we hit lucky because it was a 'half price for the bottle' night! Trout was excellent. Friends had the duck confit, and being French commented that it needs duck fat, but falling off the bone and tasty nevertheless. Waiter was very attentive, but come 9.00pm it was 'time to go home', and we found ourselves the last in the place and made to feel we should be finished (was not offered dessert). Do not use city tap water! Smells and tastes of chlorine.

Our waitress was superb. She mentioned that she had been working for only two weeks at Cafe Monte. She is definitely a keeper. We each had a three course meal plus all that we could eat of your special bread. The short rib melted in my husband's mouth and my salmon was perfectly seasoned. Even the mashed potatoes and vegetable were first rate. the creme brûlée was terrific . So too was my chocolate raspberry torte. I ate every bite of it. And all this right before Thanksgiving....

Filet not cooked the way I ordered it. French onion soup tasteless, like water. Service bad, he was a nice guy but had to ask for tea to be refilled and he kept bothering us wanting to clear plates to rush us out.. we weren’t even there long. Eggs over medium were over easy with yolk everywhere. Not a fan.

we have been here a few times with different couples, always a wonderful experience and the others are always very pleased, only issue wish it was a bit quieter, feels like a paris bistro except for the noise level. such a great menu, and our server was superb-she made the evening ever better.

We've been to Cafe Monte many times and we've never been disappointed. We like the place and the ambience. We like the music they play, which is never too loud. The service is very good, the place is very nice and above all, the food is always delicious. We'll keep going back.

First time at the restaurant- the appetizer was amazing but my Caesar salad was meh. Dressing didn’t have a lot of flavor and the croutons seemed like they came out of a bag. It was not SUPER crowded and it was still pretty loud. The server was great. There’s my review. 😊

Cafe Monte is one of our favorite go to restaurants. I love the atmosphere and feel like I am in a small French cafe for a couple of hours. The other patrons are always nice and friendly. The wait staff is excellent. There is always music playing which promotes the French atmosphere. I miss having nice music playing in other dinner restaurants. There is a good wine selection with lots of pricing options. My husband had the Beef Bourguignon and I had the blackened swordfish. Both entrees were excellent in flavor, portion size and very moist and tender. We also recommend the Beef Wellington when its on the menu.

Everything was great but a suggestion. Customers have to wait for service because you are short handed. Understand and accept that. But when it takes a few minutes to place a drink order, then the server is swamped and it takes awhile to get drinks that we’re ordered, but the bar staff isn’t quite as swamped, why not let them bring drinks. We waited almost 10 minutes for our server, then almost 10 to get our drinks.

Went for a celebratory brunch with my daughter. Unfortunately our table was directly in the morning sun which was uncomfortably in our eyes and we were roasting. And while my meal was served promptly, my daughter’s meal was delivered to the wrong table so mine got a bit cold waiting for hers.

Reservation easy on OpenTable and very timely in our seating. Time was OK in ordering and waiting for our food. Server was not the friendliest and she did run one card when it was supposed to be split between two. Seemed like it was an inconvenience for her to fix it. But all in all and in the end we were satisfied!
