Montano's - Roanoke
In 1988, the permanent location for Montano’s opened at Townside Festival Mall with 150 seats and a small but well stocked gourmet shop, complete with delicatessen, wine selection and imported beer area.
The restaurant now seats 252 and includes a private banquet room, an outdoor cafe and a 40 foot carved wood and mirrored cocktail bar. Phil Montano still regularly works in the business, which is now run by his son, Marty Montano.
Grilled Tuna Steak
Fresh tuna seasoned and grilled served on whole wheat bread with Cajun remoulade, lettuce and tomato.
Fresh vegetables in our delicious Alfredo sauce.
Five jumbo shrimp broiled with a flavorful Italian herb garlic butter
We had a nice leisurely meal. Donna was our server and attended to our needs efficiently. My wife had chicken cacciatore and a salad. I had shrimp a la griglia. All were prepared as advertised and were delicious. We did not have dessert. This is a nice place with an expansive menu. I would dine there again.
My favorite restaurant in the Roanoke valley. Great food everytime I've been here!
We made reservations because it was our Anniversary and we enjoy the food and service at Montano’s. Our service was outstanding. He was very attentive and a wonderful conversationalist. The food was outstanding. We were slightly disappointed that a table or booth hadn’t been set aside for us ahead of time with the reservation. Other tables had “reserved” signs on them. We had to wait for a table to be cleared. Overall excellent.
The Ahi Tuna Poke bowl was the best I’ve had. Atmosphere is sparkling clean. Prompt friendly waitstaff. A Roanoke treasure!
Amazing food. Extensive menu let’s all have the kind of food they want. Best restaurant in Roanoke! Super friendly staff.
I have never had a selection at Montano's that I did not like, food is great and creative in presentation.
Wonderful as always. Great staff and food.
Wonderful even though I spilled my tea& Brandy had to clean it up
Appetizer and dessert were wonderful but the steak was chewy and the vegetables were so under cooked that they would have been more appropriate as a side to chicken wings.
Jared did a PHENOMENAL job tonight. He was engaging, attentive, and always one step ahead !!!
Food is always excellent at Montanos.
Service, food & atmosphere keeps us coming back !!
Solid experience: good food, good service, nice place.
Loved our private lunch!!! Keeping social distance is a priority for Marty & his excellent staff! Much appreciated from this older guest!
Service was outstanding.
We have always enjoyed Montanos and have had nothing but positive experiences there. However, it seems their focus has slipped in the midst of the pandemic. Our meal was mediocre at best. The service was not what we have experienced in the past. I ordered a beer off of the list at the bar and was told that they didn't have it and that the list had not been changed in months. We agreed we would come back but it would be some time before we were willing to try it again.
The food and service were excellent. The experience was a great value. I look forward to visiting again.
Great birthday dinner for my wife and another couple.
Excellent service and great food
Service was very good. Food was just OK. First time there so I would go back but order differently.
My daughter’s birthday. She is a vegan so the options at Montano’s are excellent. They have the best avocado dressing that I have ever had anywhere in the world!
Great night with Friends. Service was great Food was good!!
If you like expensive, small plates of italian food. This would be a good place for you! Our waitress was kinda weird and we tried to act like nothing was happening but she kept touching our shoulders and even sat next to one of us. We tried to enjoy the evening and the lighting and size of the place was really good. Overall, I don't believe i'll be back, but other may enjoy it more than i did! The food was pretty expensive and even ordering some of the cheaper stuff on the menu our bill was $$$.
First time there the food was excellent. Received our order fast.
Food was not hot but tasty. Service was very good. Noise level was fine. We asked to be moved out of the bar and were accommodated. One if my favorite places to eat for casual lunch or dinner with friends
Very good food and great service (as usual). The filet was tasty and the side dishes were prepared perfectly.
Everything was wonderful as usual! Our server did seem a little stressed but she appeared to have our entire section on her own. She juggled everything quite nicely and was still very attentive and friendly under the circumstances. ♥️
The service, food, and environment were fantastic
The food is delicious. Everything was fresh and nicely presented. Live band made the evening fun.
Food was not warm enough.
Sister time together prior to attending play at Berglund Center.
We were seated right next to the band. Needless to say not an enjoyable experience.
We have eaten here multiple times and will again. this was a one off visit as the food was not as flavorful as normal.
Food is great and service is great. Thank you for all you do!
Always great food and service!! My favorite go to restaurant!
Our son and daughter in law was home for Christmas. We took them to Montano's because we always enjoy the food. Again, Montano's did not disappoint. Our guests enjoyed it as well and they are picky. Thanks again for a good meal.
This is a nice find for a smaller metropolitan area. Good food and a broad menu. There's something for everyone there.
It’s loud when they have music even though we were seated in the back. I ordered an angus sirloin that was dry and over cooked. My date had a fish dish that she had had on a previous visit and liked but did not this time. I ordered a drink, Pops Cubano, and I think that the bartender made it with vodka instead of rum.
All in all it was a wasted $100. I don’t think that we’ll be back.
I brought my team out for a holiday luncheon - they all had a GREAT time here! The service was prompt and attentive without being disruptive. The food was excellent, came out quickly, and was appealing to look at.
Delicious food and great service in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
