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.
Eating at Cafe Monte is Always a great experience. We really enjoy the staff.
Always fabulous. I try something new each time and I’ve never been disappointed.
We love the place. Variety of food options all of which are well prepared and tasty
Curteous friendly and professional service.
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
Exceptional in every way
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.
Please a great experience, food is wonderful, always treated very as a special guest.
Fabulous dinner. Food was delicious, flavorful and generous portions. Our server, Lisa, is one of the best we have ever had. She was amazing! Everything was wonderful.
We had lobster salads with champagne vinaigrette. Food was terrific and the service is always wonderful. We were there at 10am, so not crowded. Perfect time to go so you can talk and get business done. Really enjoyed this brunch.
Cafe Monte is our favorite brunch spot. Lisa is always so kind to my 93 year old mom who is in a wheelchair. The food is always fresh and delicious, and it is a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
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.
Food and service were terrific! Great French onion soup and lobster salad. Good eclairs!
Love going to Cafe Monte for the food, the ambience and great service
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!!
We always enjoy our meals and the ambiance at Cafe Monte. It is our 'go to' for special occasions and otherwise. Go there! You will not be disappointed.
Fine as usual.
Hosted two guests in town for ACC.
Excellent food. Waitperson a little snarky when we asked for coffee that was not lukewarm?
So delicious! They were out of lobster when we arrived for our 6:00 Reservation. I didn't realize that you could reserve ahead of time. Will keep that in mind next time!
Had a great lunch and enjoyed it very much. Intend to return in the near future.
We always enjoy our meals here. The food is consistently good and the service and ambience perfect Our only disappointment is that we reserved online and were told the tables we preferred were already reserved which is always off putting
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.
Awesome place to spend time with my family, food great.
Always good but always need a reservation! Great food even for those who eat plant based. I had sautéed asparagus & spinach - it was delicious!
food was great and they gave large portion sizes and so was service. liked gluten free options and would return
Sunday morning in a French Cafe, nibbling exceptional Quiche Florentine ...can life get any better?
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!
The food is always very amazing and delicious howeverthe service was above and beyond. If you ever go there ask for Jenny because she is amazing. We both ordered a salad and somehow the dressing didn’t overpower it and it tasted so good. My daughter and I shared the fondue which only comes with bread ... So we always have to pay for apples to be added . I think that might be something that should be just included all the time. Then we split a chicken and mushroom crêpe which is just the best comfort food. And don’t forget dessert because the eclair Was to die for it was made homemade in house
We had a wonderful time!! The food and service was great!!
Food and atmosphere are wonderful but when you add the excellent service from Sean you end up with a perfect evening!!!
Great place but can be very busy and somewhat noisy. Food and service are always excellent.
We had another fulfilling experience at Cafe Monte! Great food, upbeat ambiance and excellent service make this a favorite place for us. We will be back...again!
Everything tasted good!
Beignets are amazing !
The food quality could be better.
Also I order crossiant and scrambled eggs with side berries. I was charged as a country breakfast plate!!
The food lack flavor but it wasn’t that bad.
We love going on Friday night for lobster. Having lived on the South Shore of Long Island and having spent time in New England I have to say Café Monte does one of the best broiled lobsters ever and at under $40 for a lobster of 1.5 lbs it is a bargain. Last year in Connecticut they wanted over $45.00 and we were on a bay where they catch them.
