The escargots were so tiny and the crepes were just ok BUT the quiche Lorraine was amazing and so was the Brie en Croute.

We stopped here for a late lunch after not having been here in at least 3 years. Our previous experiences involved great food but terrible service. It seems they are making a real effort to improve that. Our service was great, we will try it again in the future! Thank you.

The tile floor, the flamboyant posters above the paneled bar, project a relaxed bistro ambience that is a nice addition to Charlottes restaurant scene. Service was courteous and pleasant. Noise level excessive but that's the case in most restaurants.

The menu had some interesting French-inspired items and with one exception rated 4 out of 5. The exception was the seafood crepe ordered by one guest. Acceptable but too much tomato.

All in all this restaurant is a good choice - a distinctive character and menu.

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.

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!
