One of my favorite restaurants....yesterday was not a good day due to ladder in front of one bathroom and electrical wires across another....person on high ladder looking into ceiling for problem and we were scared he would fall.....I know this was due to an unexpected problem but it did somewhat damper our usual dining experience.....will not, however, affect my patronage of your restaurant

Food was good, as always. Service was spotty. A vegetable exchange was not made initially and a tea order was never delivered.

Cafe Monte is one of the most consistent restaurants in Charlotte, that never fails to deliver an awesome dining experience. The staff it’s always professional, and the food speaks of being in Paris.

Such a lovely place. My wife and I felt so welcome, which isn't always the case in Charlotte restaurants. We were treated well and the food/wine was perfect.

Cafe Monte has long been one of the best restaurants in Charlotte - always a winner! I took my boyfriend for brunch on his 30th birthday in September and he took me for my 30th birthday this past Sunday. It's only fair! We're obsessed with the Belgian Waffle with Banana Flambé topping. The Quiches and Benedicts are also favorites. After a few pineapple mimosas you have what I consider my perfect brunch!

Café Monte is always a winner. We like Sean as our server as he is always efficient. I usually get the blackened swordfish but decided to try the NY Strip and was quite pleased.

We’re from out of town but it’s an annual tradition to eat brunch at Cafe Monte before Black Friday shopping at SouthPark. Food and service was exceptional as it is every year.

Have dined at Cafe Monte many times in past and enjoyed but this was not anywhere near what they have done in the past.
Food prep was terrible with my wife’s short ribs served cold and my steak terribly fatty. Service was poor, as we needed to continue
to call for the server for multiple things. Our friends needed ask 3x for sals they ordered only to have them send an extra salad with their dinner

At the end of the meal they did reduce the bill some without our asking, which was good,
but Cafe Monte need do better.

Delicious as always. Had the chicken and mushrooms crepes for brunch on Sunday, very creamy and rich. Husband had Salmon, he said it was good (Salmon was somewhat small) veggies was not very hot. But he said was good.
