Outstanding food and service as always at Monte’s
Yummilicious italian food! Will definitely go back with more people to try different things.
Service was not good. Waitress did not check on us for quite some time after we got our food. If it was busy I would understand but we were literally the only people sitting in the back. we had 5 people at our table and they didn’t bring out everyone’s food at the same time so the food they did bring out got cold before they eventually brought out the rest. The sangria was watery. And after we were done eating they then said the restaurant does not accept visa or MasterCard they only accept American Express or cash... overall, would not return.
The outdoor patio area is absolutely wonderful! Only negative thing about our experience is that they do not do a very good job at letting you know that you have to pay in cash or AMEX. We were not alerted to that until the bill came, and it should be the host at the front door who lets customers know that before they come in to dine
We are glad you enjoyed your dinner with us on the 22nd. We try to make it very clear to customers of our payment policy. Notice is listed on our front door, menu, website, OpenTable page, Google, and other social media platforms. We are looking forward to serving you and your guests again. Best, Monte's best, Maria Rosa C.
Came in last minute today with a party of 6, a baby, and a dog. They could not have been more accommodating. Our server (I hate that I didn't get his name) was TERRIFIC. Above and beyond every step of the way. We sat outside in front, then when the sun got to be a bit much for the baby, we asked to move to the back patio and he obliged and got it all ready for us. Food was delicious. Fresh oysters, delicious calamari, pizzas were wonderful, branzino was on point. Loved the limoncello spritzer for the summer-like afternoon. We were there at 4 on a Saturday and it was quiet and comfortable. Great neighborhood place!
Food was good. Service was good. Good social distancing precautions.
Terrible experience at Monte's yesterday. I have lived in NYC for 7 years and never have I been so confused by such bad service. My partner and I had brunch at the outdoor terrace. Our server wasn't friendly or knowledgeable, that we can handle. The part that got frustrating was when my croque-madame came without the egg on top. Over the course of about 30 minutes, we asked 3 different servers about it, my partner even went inside to follow-up and still nothing ever happened. By then my food was cold, and we were really annoyed by such obnoxious and unprofessional behavior. We went to the host to pay up for what we did eat/drink and leave. He was apologetic, as was the manager (chef?) but both clearly had no idea how to manage the situation. We paid and left. The reviews of this place were good and it looks like a nice spot, so I'm very surprised. This is unfortunately by far the worst dining experience I have ever had in NYC and I have been to many places!
If I could give zero stars I would. We waited 2hrs and never got our food. Worse experience ever. My first time walking out of a restaurant.
Had an absolutely delightful evening in the garden at Monte's. Plenty of space between diners, fabulous heaters, delicious food and excellent service.
The food was all delicious! Even the bread they bring you to start is excellent. Service was slow, but that was fine for a friends reunion. Overall, highly recommend Monte’s.
Great dinner from a classic restaurant
Great outside patio in the back
Old school Brooklyn vibes, great history to this place, great food, really nice service, and lovely outdoor space in back. Been wanting to go to Monte's forever and so happy we finally did. We will definitely be back! Not a "scene" restaurant, but overall very good experience. Thank you, Monte's.
Waiter was forgetful. Food was rather average (we had pasta). Couldn’t light the heater. Music blared in my guest’s ear.
A delicious chicken avocado salad, a refreshing carafe of red sangría and a wonderful chat with our charming waiter, Jovan. Life is good!
Food was alright. Nothing fantastic. Pork chop was swimming in too much sauce. Cioppino was under spiced but broth was decent. Speaking of Cioppino, the server didn’t even know it was something on the menu even though it was the first item in ‘Secondi’. Pizzas are supposedly good. Will give them one more shot and try that.
Large tented outdoor seating with heaters. Delicious food and friendly service.
Thank you for another great dining experience!!!!
Horrible food. It was not fresh or tasty.
Amazing food and service was great. Thank you to our Serbians waiter
Nothing to brag about. Not bad but nothing spectacular or to brag about. Rather average and blah . Cocktails were good though .
We had the whole backyard to ourselves and they fired up the heater right next to our table so it was a great experience! Very good service! The food was ok - my boar was a little tough and uninspired but the drinks were good!
Phenomenal food. Three courses — salad, pasta and meat — all were delicious
Great dining experience! Loved dining out on the back patio and the food was outstanding!
Service was excellent, food was pretty good. The bread was delish! Meatballs could use a little more flavor. Would go back again. :)
Was put at a tiny table pressed up against the bar when the rest of outdoor patio was empty. Was told the other tables were reserved. When left an hour later, those tables we still empty. Food was typical Italian. Nothing extraordinary.
This place is a hidden gem! Their food is beyond delicious!
Great place with beautiful backyard.
I just love going to Monte’s - for good food and lovely service. Their beautiful backyard hides you from all your worries for one meal. And yes - their tiramisu is so fluffy and just the right amount of sweet!
The service was great and the food outstanding. Everyone in our party agreed. Monte's is a great place for brunch or dinner.
First time visit for my friend and me. We enjoyed a nice brunch in the patio. I had forgotten my friend doesn't eat meat or eggs so the choices were limited. She enjoyed the fish tacos. We would go back.
Seems like a decent place, but it was way, way overpriced for the quality of the food. I thought I was going out for a nice date night, and it felt like fast casual dining for luxury prices. Totally possible they were having an off night. The wait staff was kind and engaging and I tipped well, don't worry, but I would not go back.
Great food, nice garden. Server was brusque but effective.
We came from Manhattan visiting Brooklyn, first time at Monte's, and we loved the whole package here. Food was outstanding, wine list was very cool, our waiter was professional, warm, even charasmatic as the rest of the staff was. Seems like a neighborhood gem.
Returned to Monte’s for the first time in decades. Excited to see the renovations. The place, even closed off, looks great, very open and modern, while retaining some of the charm of the old-school original.
The food, however, was bland and unexciting. Too-salty meatballs, grainy mozzarella, and under-seasoned pizzas.
Super- friendly service. Really wanted to like the meal, but the food was just not up to par.
Great food and service.
Everything about this experience was wonderful. We had six people ranging from 26 to 60 and each person raved about the food, service and ambiance. Thank you for a great, safe brunch.
Had the clams and pasta. Got horribly sick from a bad clam. The service, however, was great.
For a place claiming to be the oldest Italian restaurant in Brooklyn, I was disappointed with the food. The service was superb. The backyard isn’t open, so if that where you believe you’ll be seated, not true. Also menu has been updated, from the one presented here on open table. Ravioli isn’t homemade, and had an overwhelming amount of truffle oil. Gnocchi was super chewy and mushy. Again, service was great, just not up to par with what is expected from the oldest Italian spot in Brooklyn.
