We have been coming here for several years and have never been disappointed. My daughter was visiting from Chicago and we thought she would really enjoy the food. She enjoyed every aspect of the meal.
She and I both had the swordfish and it was excellent! The leftovers were equally as moist as when we at it at the restaurant.

My husband and I met another couple for dinner at Cafe Monte. Delightful evening. The food was delicious. My salmon was done to perfection - slightly crispy exterior, moist and flavorful interior. Our waiter, Shawn, was outstanding - attentive, knowledgeable, helped with wine pairing to the satisfaction of all. Others had steak and frites. Also thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back.

Cafe Monte never disappoints. Last night was no exception. I ordered the blackened sword fish and it was terrific. Not spicy just flavorful. Nice portion size.

Celebrated mother-in-law’s birthday. Food was delicious, with trout and beef & asparagus crepes being highlights. Festively decorated for holidays, and live music on weekends. Highly recommended!

We love going to Cafe Monte. The food and service is consistently great. It brings back fond memories of our visits to Paris and many places in France.

We suggest a reservation at peak times, and they have always fulfilled any special request we have.

We look forward to our next visit.

Good varied menu for Sunday Brunch. The crab and lobster crepes were delicious, the kale salad was fresh and also delicious. Our server was extremely friendly helpful and left us to chat. Add bottomless coffee and great bloody mary’s .... it was a memorable brunch.

Nice ambiance and menu, although there are no vegan main course options. French fries were awful - oil-soaked and too much salt. Dishes are over-salted in general, some more than others. I ordered a side of sautéed spinach that was so salty it was inedible even to others at the table. When I sent it back, it didn't arrive until we finished our meal. The server was glad to package it to go, and took it off our bill, however, I doubt I'll go back.

The food was great, however, we felt rushed. I was dining with my 2 girls, ages 8 and 11. They frequently eat out and are very well behaved. I felt as if they wanted us to eat and run. It was not a relaxed experience, which is what we were looking for that evening.

Met an old friend there for dinner. Everything was delightful. They were very nice about us occupying the table all evening. Next time we'll think to move to the bar. They were also fabulous about fixing something to accommodate my garlic allergy (yes, it is the worst thing ever). This is one of my top two favorite restaurants in town--love the Paris feel too.
