We chose Cafe Monte after having dinner there on several occasions. This time it was for brunch with some out-of-town friends. It is a popular place for Sunday lunch, and our meals were quite good. The noise level was higher than I would have liked for good conversation, but we enjoyed ourselves.
Fabulous meal! Loved that it was hot when it was brought to the table!!
We always enjoy Cafe Monte. Everything about the establishment speaks of professional yet relaxed customer service. The Belle Epoch ambiance itself is worth the visit, but the food makes everything sublime.
I have one small complaint: the crepes on the lunch menu are as good as you’d find outside of France. I wish CM would add the crepes to the dinner menu.
Food was excellent (as always) Service the same Drinks wonderful Very organized
Great Food and service, for the money it's really worth it
Ate the salmon and will definitely be back
Once again a very meal!
We love Friday night lobster special and half price wine nights. We are never disappointed with Cafe Monte
Great food- perfect service and warm and fun atmosphere.
Good food and nice ambiance. Reminded me of a French Bistro in Paris. I had made this reservation about two weeks in advance. Noted it was our Anniversary but no one acknowledged it. An acknowledgment would have been nice. The macaroons were very authentic and delicious.
Our favorite breakfast/brunch with many excellent choices. Massive cappucinos. The servers are very attentive, friendly and accommodating. Also great for lunch. Decadent bakery items.
The mussels here are tasty with a priceless broth that you want to keep dipping your bread in. The charcuterie plate is full of variety and everything was delicious.
Quick dinner before a movie! Highly recommend!
Everything was great except the “tomato” slices on the salad.
Great food at great prices with friendly efficient services. Beef Wellington perfectly prepared. Swordfish fresh and moist with wonderful spinach, tomato and potato base.
Waitstaff was professional, kind and helpful, and the food was amazing. The noise level was a little loud but it was not really a problem at all. Also, prices are great (appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts for $76). Main complaint would be that despite a special request nothing was done for the birthday we were there to celebrate and service was a tad slow. Overall, though, I would definitely return and recommend!
Have had better steak frites.
Great brunch at Cafe Monte!
Great spot for brunch! Love everything I get here
Always a great place to gather with friends.
The lobster soup was not that good and was only warm. No bits of lobster meat. My roasted chicken was very good as were the other entrees ordered.
We will return as nothing can be perfect every time.
Cafe Monte never disappoints! It is our go-to celebration place.
Service and all staff are excellent! Food is fresh and lots of flavor!
Great experience as always. Delicious food and friendly staff.
This is the best restaurant in Charlotte...hands down!
The Coq Au Vin was a little dry and not quite as good as we had in the past but was acceptable. The couple with us enjoyed their entrees. The Coconut Cake and Raspberry Mouse Cake for desert were enjoyed by all.
Today was my first visit to Cafe Monte. We had to wait a little long for our lunch order, the restaurant was busy and the waiter did apologize. The food was definitely worth the wait and the portions were a nice size. I will definitely be back.
Good service and good food
order came out incorrect, server admitted mistake, comped our 2 lunches while the other 2 in party ate their lunch. Took 1/2 hour to get the correct food. The entire lunch should have been free.
We go to Monte at lease once a week. We love the food, the atmosphere but most of all the people- Monte, Paul, Lisa, John, Cara, Fabi, Laura, Conrad and Xavier. My husband and I have lived in Charlotte all our lives and Café Monte is our favorite restaurant of all time here and that says a lot since we graduated high school in 1976!
The food and, especially, the service was stellar as always. Cafe Monte is one of the best in Charlotte.
Lovely food and servers. Really pleasant experience!
Jenny is absolutely amazing! Great service and the food is delicious as always!
I love Cafe Monte! The food is always good and so is the service.
We enjoyed celebrating a birthday. It’s our favorite celebration place. Food is always good and our server was much better this time. We would recommend and we will be back.
Wonderful service, fun menu, cute patio. Can't wait to go back. My new favorite place.
Predictably excellent food & service
Thursday night is half price wine night - a very good deal. We both had crepes and they were delicious. The wine was HobNob Pinot Noir and it was a good pairing with the crepes. We had dinner outside at the sidewalk tables - it was a little warm but bearable. Service was good. This is my wife’s favorite restaurant and we both enjoy going. They have a wine dinner the last Tuesday of the month most months- we always look forward to that. I highly recommend Cafe Monte and we will be back.
Have not been to Cafe Monte in several years. Really, didn't go because I didn't think it was that good. Friends told me to try it again. Well, I think I'm hooked. I had the salmon with sautéed vegetables and mashed potatoes. Just fantastic. All of it. My friend had Trout Almondine(?) and loved it. Another friend had the mussels and said they were excellent. Frankly, I can't wait to go back. Prices were more than reasonable as well.
One of my favorite up=scale restaurants and I've eaten there three times in the last two weeks....I feel very appreciated when I receive an email offering me a FREE Entree for my birthday!
