Enjoyable dinner and great service.
This is one of my favorite restaurants because the food, service and ambiance is always excellent. We weren't disappointed this time either. Everything was wonderful.
Food is excellent, Service Average, Noise level is annoying.
We had a terrific brunch and the Eggs Benedict were the best we ever had. Shane provided excellent service and we hope to be at one if his tables when we go again.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere. It wasn’t too loud and the waiters/ waitress were very friendly. My waitress was very informative on the menu and suggested what she thought we would like. She introduced me to a Basil drunk and I loved it.
Very delicious food for a very reasonable price. If you are going for the Beef Wellington special on a Saturday, aim for the earlier side because they do tend to run out fairly quickly. Other than that, really no complaints.
This restaurant never disappoints!
Our server, Lisa, was delightful, very knowledgeable about the food, wines, and desserts. Kara,the evening manager , was all smiles, friendly, making sure “all was good”, but yet professional.
At our table we had the poutine which originates from Canada and was divine. Followed by our entrees which were steak for some and salmon for some. All was delicious, hot , and exactly as we ordered. The wines were superb, not overpriced and Lisa did a great job recommending.
I look forward to our next visit. Always a great dining experience with a great staff, from hostess to busers! And of course ... the chef!!
One of our absolute favorite restaurants for brunch and dinner!
The strawberry salad with chicken salad on top was delicious! The service is always pleasant, attentive and friendly.
Had breakfast: French toast and salmon Benedict. Both were excellent. Service could not have been better! Rose is the best!
I love this place!!! Try it out~
Love this place!
As always, a great experience dining with friends at Cafe Monte. Tasty French menu at reasonable prices. Desserts and pastries made in-house. Recommend for dinner, lunch, or brunch.
The only complaint is the service was rushed. The waiter bringing one course before the 1st course wa finished. Otherwise everything wad wonderful
The trout was delicious and the waiter very attentive. Met a Friend at this restaurant that I had not seen in a while and we felt very free to extend our evening just to talk and did not feel rushed at all.
We are regular lunch customers. First time breakfast. Belgian waffle with smile ked bacon perfect. My wife had spinach florentine omlet. Perfect. Familar waiter excellent and attentive.
Last night’s experience was great! We found the food and service over the top! Definitely recommend.
My first visit. My friend had been before and really liked it. I ordered the Caesar salad my way of judging a restaurant. Not so good. Lettuce was almost room temp, dressing not much to speak of and no fresh ground pepper offered. My steak frites was terrific but huge. My date had same crepe which she loved. We will be back.
Café Monte is a great restaurant but it does get noisy after 7pm so go early. The blackened swordfish is outstanding.
Wonderful love the food and atmosphere always have great service . Lovely experience and location .
Met with friends for dinner. pen Table reservations were a breeze. Staff was very nice, even helped make joke with out friends. The waiter was outstanding. It was obvious from the beginning that he had many years of experience. He was there when you wanted him, but he did not hover, yet water was there, bread was there etc. He is a true professional and someone with that ability always enhances a meal. We all had an excellent meal.
My friend and I had a lovely time at "brunch." It was hard to choose from the full and rich menu but our choices - lobster bisque, Caesar salad with tuna, crab cakes benedict, and then a chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce - were scrumptious. Even though it was very crowded, we didn't feel rushed, and our service felt personable and very directed towards our enjoyment of our meal.
Excellent food and they graciously accommodated our mistaken coupon use. We will be back!
Always good food, service. Professional, friendly staff.
Date w our 9 yo granddaughter. Kid pizza a hit!!
Café Monte never disappoints. The food is excellent and the service attentive and friendly. We recently relocated from Charlotte and had to return for a meeting, and so did not want to miss the opportunity to visit one of our favorite restaurants.
Another excellent brunch at Cafe Monte. Smoked salmon Benedict, topped off with warm benets. Very close to Cafe Du Monde quality.
Celebrated a friend's birthday at my favorite restaurant! Great food, service....
The food was excellent. My husband had the short ribs and I had the shrimp and artichoke crepes. However, we continue to struggle with their level of service. Our waiter knew nothing about wine, and that’s unusual for a restaurant of this type. Our first selection he suggested was terrible, and he did call over the wine steward. Before we even got our bread and wine, our dinners arrived. Of course we sent them back. It’s like nobody was organized or watchful. It made for a stressful dinner.
The server made us feel very rushed. My friend was upset with that. It was a 5 pm reservation and I understand they want to turn the table but it was 6:30!
Wonderful dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our excellent waiter (Sean) helped to make the dining experience memorable. We took advantage of the half price bottle of wine (Tuesdays and Thursdays.) My wife had the chicken and mushroom crepe and I had the beef short ribs dish. Both were excellent and quite filling...my wife even took some of her crepe dish home for lunch the next day. Look forward to returning soon.
The cheese fondue appetizer was great! The chicken crepe was delicious! Always have a great dining experience.
Café Monte is always a pleasure! The food, the service and the ambience are all incredible. The background music always sets the mood to make you think you are in a quaint French bistro and the food backs it up. Parfait!
Very good lunch spot. Extensive menu. Yummy Brie appetizer.
Just brunch with Mom-very busy but we were seated within 10 minutes of our open table reservation -food good -noise level a little high -hard to hear
We had a couples’ brunch outside on a sunny February day that turned rainy towards the end. Our waitress was attentive and made great recommendations like the beignets (mmmmm!). I had the seafood omelette, which was amazing! We will definitely be back.
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends! Our waitress was was attentive and friendly.
This is her favorite place and it never disappoints. The food is always outstanding and I can honestly say we have never had anything here that was not great.
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.
