Monti's in Santa Rosa, California serves locally sourced American and Mediterranean cuisine. There is also a full bar, and two patios. Dogs are welcome to keep their owners company on the patio areas. Monti's offers a variety of oysters, deviled eggs stuffed with Dungeness crab and a variety of cheeses for starters. Entr�es could include roasted leg of lamb, suckling pig with sage polenta, pan roasted Arctic char, certified Angus bavette steak or a pizza or pasta dish.
Monti's also has burgers and sandwiches like Monte Cristo, grilled lamb burger and grilled sirloin burger. Ask your server about the daily quiche as well.
On a nice evening, dining outdoors at Monti's is a delight. Margaritas were the perfect way to start our meal. Although we wanted to try several of the offerings we decided to share a mushroom pizza and endive and radicchio salad - both great choices. All of the ingredients are fresh and everything is nicely prepared. There is a tempting dessert menu, but instead we ended our meal with cappuccinos. Service is very good. Perfect dining experience.
I had prime rib special. Delivered to table cold, well over 50 % of "meat" was fat. Blue cheese sauce on top hid the fat. If you order, ask for blue cheese sauce on the side so you can see the meat...or in this case, the fat! I should have sent it back. I've eaten here many times, but this meal was not up to their standards...or mine!
Not the obvious choice when you are European. Dining in a shopping strip.. But what a surprise.
lovely and lively waitresses, and loved the Rotisserie du Jour ( It was Veal ) . One of the best piece of meat for a long long time. The prawns on the skillet were also finger licking good !
Pinot Noir ( Oregon ) by the glass was good , cab Franc was boring and bland.
Monti's is always a good choice. Great for lunch or dinner.
Good place to take out of town visitors.
Monti's is my go to place. I can always trust that the food will be good, service great and a fun cocktail menu with a good list of wines. I like the options of small bites or going for something more filling. Good spot for lunch, cocktails or dinner.
This is our most favorite local place. Sad it is not on Opentable any longer. Started to go before 6 for happy hour... great food half the price and good variety!
Great place to get together with friends. We sat outside and it was quiet and easy to carry on a conversation. Service was very good and so was the food. I enjoyed a quinoa, chicken and kale salad while others tried salmon and another tried pork shoulder. We were all very happy with our selections and I will definately return!
We generally like Stark restaurants, especially when Mark Stark is the chef, but Monti's was a disappointment. Loved the Parmesan dressing on crisp romaine but that was it. Daily special veal chop was awful: tasteless, flabby-textured meat. Big but blah. We love veal chops but this was the worst we've ever had. Potato gratin was what we call "Cheesecake Factory style": overrich, over-cheesed, overdone. A good gratin is a thing of beauty but this was just Excess Dairy Fat, a heart attack waiting to happen. We're hearty eaters and devoted carnivores (we knock off 16-oz prime rib at least once a month and I use cheese lavishly in everyday cooking) but Monti's needs half size of portions and twice the quality. Big servings of below-average food is no real bargain.
Loved it. Super Yummy.
Very accommodating to a diet.
Had a great brunch on Mother's Day. Monti's did not disappoint. One of my go to Restuarants!
They took us last seating and server was great and we helped her get out asap as well. Food always great at Monti's.!!
Always great!! One of our favorites!
The Oysters were great! Monti's seems to have the best oysters in town and they are always really good. The rest of the meal was also top notch. Everybody in our party really enjoyed the dinner.
As always fabulous food, great service, and nice outdoor eating area.
We eat her often and enjoy bringing our friends !
Table was ready with no wait. Food selection was excellent. I always have Monti's Cristo and was not disappointed.
Excellent service, good but not great food. There are overhead heaters for outside tables.
We dined on a Sunday evening. Restaurant was lively and fairly full for 6PM on a Sunday. I had the Sunday special that was a large medium rare prime rib with blue cheese, horseradish, latkes and greens. My partner had filet of sole. We started with a warm spinach salad with bacon and baby shrimp and ended with a crème bruele. It was all very tasty. They have a happy hour that runs until 6pm or so that has special wines by the glass and small plate selections. Nice restaurant in Montgomery Village.
I guess asking for sparkling water is too tall of an order here. Three requests. No problem we will get it for you. Got soda water from the fountain. Not the Same! I have dinner here 50 times in the past 10 years without many issues.
BBQ goat tacos were AMAZING and crab deviled eggs were delicious too
Very nice time at Monti's this month meeting old friends for dinner. Famous for the daily changes of an entree special, Monti's also has some reliable menu choices that are consistently good, for example; the Monti Cucumber Martini....not really a martini, but reliably delicious. Also the warm spinach salad that we all enjoyed as a starter. New to me were the Moroccan chicken meatballs, also excellent. After a pleasant round of starters we enjoyed the Lamb pasta, the dorade, the bavette and the arctic char. Good reviews all round. We finished up with butterscotch pudding. Very good, but not yet caught up the Town Hall's version. I'll keep checking, though.
