Monticello at Red Bank Ratings and Reviews
16 Oz veal chop was more like 8oz (cost $45). We had 2 appetizers (1 salad / 1 clams) and 2 entrees. Despite having a $50 off credit from a prior bad experience, the bill was still $65 (BYOB) and it took 2.5 hours. Very disappointing. Not kid friendly. Just thankful that my 4 yr old is very patient.
Happened upon Monticello through Open Table reviews under BYOB.
Love to find new places with great food that allow us to bring our own wine and Monticello was the perfect spot. The menu is ample, but not large which suggests they have great control of the product that comes out of the kitchen and this was absolutely the case. Pear salad, pasta dish, stuffed chicken all wonderful and we're looking forward to trying the dishes we didn't select next visit
BIg thumbs up !
Food was great. We took my relatives from Ohio there for dinner. The service wasn't very good. Waiter acted like he really did not want to be at work. We never had him before. I don't even know what his name was. We will go back. But will request female waitress. My family just thinks it's New Jersey rudeness! Lol. Which, is true to a degree
My daughter & I started a tradition of going to dinner together and a Christmas show every year.
We have dined here before and enjoyed it very much, but this week we were very disappointed.
We started with the Burrata Caprese , which was very good - but there was only 1 slice of Burrata. We then ordered dinner. I asked for the Pork Ossobuco, and was told that it wasn't served during the week. This is not a big deal, but it would have been nice to know before we ordered. I changed my order to the Stuffed Chicken and asked if I could have the mushroom risotto instead of the truffle fries. I was informed that there would be an upcharge (I'm not sure why, because both are on the side dish menu). The waiter came by again to tell me that it would be an extra 20 minutes to get my meal so they could make the risotto fresh. OK - we had a little extra time. My dinner arrived with no side dish, but I figured it was coming out shortly. It never did. As we were now both finished and we had to leave for the show at the Count Basie, I asked for the check and told the waiter that I never received the risotto. His response "what do you want me to do?" I did not want to be confrontational and ruin our night, so I just asked him to remove the charge. He removed the upcharge.
Dinner for 4 on Saturday night was very good. Appetizers were good although the cheese platter for $19 was a bit much. Main course drew rave reviews from all - Veal Parm, Pork Chop, Sea food dish, and pasta with sea food were delicious. Owner/head chef came out and shared a home made liquor for after dinner. It is a BYOB. Just a tiny bit pricy but probably worth it.
Once again we had a very good meal. Two of us had the ameritriciana, which was exceptional. The salads were too. One of our party had the veal Milanese, and though it was fine, the dish needed something else, either pasta or some sauce or drizzle. Our server, Daniel, was great--friendly, engaging and helpful. Their price fix is very hard to beat. We recommend it highly.
Arrived 15 mins before reservation and was seated promptly. I was concerned about reviews I read re:. Noise level. No problem on a Friday @4:45. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner. My husband had veal parm and he liked his entree. He is an extremely picky eater. I had a special with cod, mussels and clams over the creamiest risitto. Had leftovers the next day.. Delicious!! Definitely would go back. We left about 6:15 and noticed the noise level was tolerable. Very courteous service.
I grew up close to the area, and was here quite often. I never knew this place existed until I was researching on the computer for some place new to eat; all I can say is that I am super happy I came across this restaurant. The food was outstanding! My friend and I liked all the specials for the night, so we ordered all of them. We ate a lot of seafood dishes, which were superb! I liked the ambiance, as did my friend because we haven't had a girl's night in awhile where we were able to just talk. It's great for a night out with friends but also a great place to go for a date night with your significant other. I can't wait to come back here!!
Have been to Monticello several times. This time just like the last time the service was horrible. It took our waitress 50 minutes just to bring bread to our table after asking 3 times!! Our meal came out about about 90 minutes after we ordered it. Our reservation was for 7:45 and we left the restaurant at 10:00pm, not even ordering any dessert. It took another 20 minutes to get our check after we asked for it. It's unfortunate that Monticello can't get their act together when it comes to service.
The food is great, the service has a lot to be desired.
Read many reviews that stated that the service was poor but the food was great. Well we had the exact opposite experience...decent service and mediocre food at best. So many fabulous restaurants in Red Bank...Monticello is a definite pass for us!
We've been here a number of times and have never been disappointed. One of our visits was on a Friday and it was very noisy and hard to have a conversation. But on a Tuesday or a Wednesday with only four or five tables taken it was a very nice dinner. There was only one server but she was very attentive. She explained the prix fixe menu to us and we opted for it even though it was cash only. The courses were spaced out well and we enjoyed everything we ordered. We dine out once a week and will definitely be back again.
