Cafe Monte is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte . It never disappoints whether it’s for lunch or dinner. The quiche with side salad was tasty and salad was fresh, crisp and refreshing. Our server Javier was friendly and knowledge and we enjoyed his quick sense of humor. Manager Kara was delightful, making sure we had everything we needed, always professional.
If you haven’t been - pay a visit to Cafe!
Really good food and some of the best service I have ever had.
Another great dinner at Cafe Monte. Have never been disappointed with excellent service and half price wine. Perfect.
A really good night at Cafe Monte. Such good menu selections at very reasonable prices. Not sure how anyone can consume an entree at one sitting. Needless to say my short rib beef bourguignon was plentiful, flavorful and delicious. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her shrimp and artichoke crepe. Monte has been around for years and still is one of Charlotte's best restaurants.
Our meal and service were delightful and provided the perfect atmosphere for a reunion on old friends.
Excellent food and service. Table was near the front and we had to compete with the live music to be heard.
This is a great restaurant. Very consistent. We had business associates in from Florida and they were very pleased with the seafood selection especially the oysters.
GREAT SERVICE ~ GREAT FOOD
We arrived late. But were still treated like we were the first guest of the evening. Lisa was our server and treated us like we were guest in her home. She made great suggestions for dinner and wonderful recommendations for wine parings. They had run out of the All-You-Can-Eat Mussels so we chose a wonderful Chicken & Mushroom Crepe and Beef Short Ribs. Both were Lisa's suggestions and FANTASTIC! We enjoyed the Escargot and small Charcuterie (which was plenty to share) The evening there was a wonderful experience. When we have the opportunity to return, we will hope to be seated with Lisa again.
This is one of my favorite restarurants in Charlotte. The food is always consistently good as is the service.
Always a pleasant experience. Top notch food. No fail place to meet friends.
Had an amazing brunch here, the beignets melt in your mouth and the service is impeccable.
The food was wonderful and I enjoyed the meal. The staff was friendly
Lisa is a wonderful server! We always ask for her. Food great as always and we love the live music.
Place needed a serious update. Food was good and service was great. Just couldn't get pass that worn down dirty look?
We always look forward to visiting Cafe Monte. Reminds us of our trips to Paris & France; especially when you play French music.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Overall good. Hard to conduct meeting with a 2 top
The special was all you can eat mussels. Delicious sauce and frites! The mussels were very small but tasty. Portion size needs to be more consistent. My family members each got a full bowl and mine was about half full. Not a big deal since it was all you can eat! Great service!
Always enjoy Cafe Monte! A regular for us most any time!
Used to be my favorite “go to” brunch. Lately service has slipped. This morning it was terrible. First - I had made a reservation a week and a half in advance requesting a half booth out of the way of foot traffic because we had a toddler in our party — we get there and were told it was already reserved for another party. Second - service was horrendous. The party next to us came, got their food and left before we even got our food. We had to go to the front to ask for our checks to LEAVE. Third - it was sweltering in the place. I was wearing a knee length sleeveless dress and was still sweating. Fourth - the staff was extremely unapologetic and not at all conciliatory. I still left 20% tip - I usually leave more for brunch - they earned 0%. I will not be back after being a return customer for years.
Enjoyed as always.
I had been here once before and thoroughly enjoyed lobster crepes so I surprised my husbabd with a date night here so he could also enjoy the wonderful food with me. I again had lobster crepes and he had Duck Confit. Divine!
As it was restaurant week the venue was crowded. Food as good as it usually is - we will be back
Great food and wine menu, good service and nice setting, especially the outdoor seating.
We absolutely LOVED Cafe Monte. The beef short rib sandwich was awesome. My friend got one of the benedicts and loved it as well. Great service, prices are ok if you're prepared to spend a little more for a good meal.
Another great meal.
We love this place!! Great food. Very welcoming staff. Huge wine pours.
This is one of our favorite restaurants and we are never disappointed. Acoustics not the best for conversation when crowded which is is most of the time.
Very good fresh food and they service was outstanding! I recommend Café Monte without hesitation.
We dined during Queen's Feast and we both really enjoyed all three courses we chose, and the service was exceptional. The only disappointment was the size of my entree. I ordered the jumbo scallops and the plate consisted of just 2 scallops, fairly normal size, on top of a small salad. The dish was excellent but for $35 I would expect more the the entree. All the other plates I saw coming out of the kitchen seemed fairly large while our Queen's Feast portions were quite small. I would still highly recommend but would probably order off the regular menu.
very good food
Delicious food. One of Charlotte’s best for brunch.
Good food. Enjoyed the meat and cheese board. Husband had Thai chicken salad that was quite good. I had eggs Benedict. Unfortunately I was already full but it was good. Very crowded restaurant and noisy but still enjoyed.
The food and the service were both great! We thoroughly enjoyed the way the Eggs Benedict were cooked and Conrad provided excellent service!!
I always enjoy Cafe Monte...food is consistenly very good.
I feel a little closed in at some of the tables and the noise level is rather high.
Overall, however, it is one of my favorites!
We have been here a number of times and it never fails, the food is always great. We both had the Beef Bourguignonne and it is so good. The are taking part in Queens Feast but have not reduced the portion size so it was a lot of food.
Great food, service, nice location. Something on menu for all. Consistent on food quality and excellent service.
Cafe Monte is one of our regular place when my wife lands on Friday nights from one of many trips. Friendly staff, great ambiance and superb food. I strongly recommend the short rib bourguinion.
Our server was terrific! I wish I could remember his name, but I believe he is new? Didn't make us feel rushed, although we had a lot to cover in our business lunch and stayed for almost two hours!
Emma the hostess was gracious and professional
Paul the server was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.
The food was great/ 2 of us has the swordfish which was delicious. The Niçoise salad presentation was beautiful as well as tasty.
It was a great meal as always
Always a wonderful experience. Our waitress was exceptionally good this visit. Food is consistently excellent.
