Quite an enjoyable evening. They were kind enough to seat me upon arrival even though our whole party wasn't there...arrived 15 minutes later. Service was excellent, food well prepared to your request...I asked for a rare steak and got it while the other gentle asked for his salmon to be cooked pink ( medium rare). Was luck that evening all bottles of wine were half off not just a select few. The waiter noticed this after presenting the check and made the correction when he returned for the credit card payment with out me having to inquire. Will return again .

I usually provide this location as an option when I have business meetings and want to give guests solid options, accessible places, and a proven menu. Glad lunch reservations are possible. Appreciate the reception staff being attentive to members of parties who arrive at different times. Welcoming. Sensitive to the need for well-timed lunch hours.

As we've come to expect, the dining experience at Cafe Monte was a total hit. The food was excellent and the service from Lisa W. was great. Monte' has quickly become a reliable favorite for us.

The door was excellent, served nice and hot. Our waitress was outstanding, very attentive but not overbearing. Unfortunately I don't remember her name. The one downside to the evening was the music. Too loud and intrusive. I would suggest the restaurant return to low canned music.

Cafe Monte is a go to spot for us. We enjoy the casual atmosphere and the solid cuisine. This visit was on a Friday evening when they have live music. It really adds to the ambiance. We started with a beet salad. I had the mussels which are always terrific. My wife had the French Onion soup which was good, but the portion size has shrunk. It was slightly larger than thimble. The service and timing was good. We were never rushed, and had time to enjoy our cocktails before ordering. We will return and recommend the restaurant.

Valentine’s dinner. Early reservation as restaurant was booked at preferred time. Lisa was our server to our delight as she is the best! Restaurant seemed to purposely preserve space between parties to ensure privacy which we believe was very considerate and well thought-out. Lisa never rushed us but checked on us periodically. Another delightful dinner at Cafe Monte!

Great experience, as usual. We're regulars and have had only one time where there was an issue with the food. This trip was on Valentine's Day, so it was busy and a little noisy, but we expected it to be so. Food was good and service the same. Looking forward to our next visit.

this is my favorite French Bistro in Charlotte. My meal has never disappointed me. Had reservations and were seated on time even though the place was busy. Service was good. It was a birthday brunch. Never felt rushed to get us out.

The food was fabulous! The Mussels and Frites were yummy! Everyone loved their food - it was a party of 5 - all were pleased! The Wild Mushroom Crepe with Madeira Creame is nothing short of amazing. The menu is pretty mainstream French. The price points are very good. Also, I’ve done several wine dinners here and they were great! Overall a very good value. We’ll be back again and again.
