Food isn’t up to par for the price. Go to Ruth’s Chris or Fleming’s, a much better meal for the same price
Love our family time at Monty’s. Great food , warm atmosphere. Always a favorite
Very busy but attentive considering the crowd. Good value for the quantity served.
No class but authentic.
Our server, Madonna was exceptional. Food was delicious as always!
such a great place. have been to Montys for years. was here here sunday after dining saturday at Jean & Georges steak house in vegas - and montys better. michael levine a class act and gives that neighborhood feel
Classic steakhouse that rarely disappoints. Great steaks, drinks and sides make for a wonderful evening
Delicious dinner and wonderful service.
I have known the Levine family for 43 years. Great hosts, great food, great service. A local family owned place that is constistantly great.
We are from Virginia and had pulled this restaurant up on google as fine dining and was very pleased with the food and service. Wonderful meal.
Waitresses were arguing over who gets what tables in front of the customers, otherwise
business lunch was ok.
A fantastic first-of-many visits to Monty’s! Penny took great care of us.
An overall rating is not a good first evening's experience. Restaurant was overcrowded to the extreme. Servers were crazy with work. The room we were in was hosting a large birthday party. We could hardly squeeze into our booth. The air conditioning was maxed out and it was very cold, we kept our coats on with collars turned up. Our server did not explain the specials, didn't mention them at all. We had to shout to be heard. The food was just OK, not as good as it should have been. They should never have seated us in that room, and they knew better. We drove 35 miles for a lousy experience.
We have been there many times for lunch and enjoyed everything. This was our first and last Saturday night there.
VERY BUSY BUT OUR RESERVATION WAS HONORED RIGHT ON TIME.
THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT
Everything was great, except the wait. 1/2 hour with a reservation!
We love going there. But this time they put us in the back room- which was either freezing cold or very hot. For some reason they could not figure out how to manage the control.
The food was tasty, as always, our waitress was lovely.
Always a great experience, solid food and menu, generous cocktails, great wine list and exceptional service.
The waiters were exceptional - friendly and knowledgeable.
The Chateaubriand (off menu) was outstanding.
Will definitely go there again.
Excellent service everyone enjoyed their meals
The food was excellent and the service was great I’ve had a great a time. I’ve recommended this place to my friend and family already,
Been going to Montes for over 30 years it always amazes me. They have the best food I love this place.
I’m in the restaurant business so I can appreciate when a place gets it right every time. I can’t wait to go back
Excellent as always
The food was great as usual, but the Saturday band was not for the place
This is quite a place! It's been around for years, and years. (for a reason, its very good) I remember decades ago they also had a place in Westwood on top of a high rise office building. Long gone now...no more views, just GREAT food...in the valley.
It's located really close to the freeway and easy to get to. The place is usually PACKED. Basic GREAT food. VERY EXPENSIVE. Good service! GREAT drinks. Everything is large portions.
I like the large order of clams for dinner. Salads are huge. Maybe you want to split? Blue cheese dressing is great. AND WOW THEIR BAKED POTATO IS THE BEST...NOT IN THE VALLEY BUT PROBABLY IN THE WORLD. They also are VERY expensive.
The bar fills up and is a singles hang out for "Middle aged" folks.
If you sit in the bar for your dinner, you will not carry on much of a conversation with anyone across from you, but if you have access to someones ear - it's possible to converse. Very loud!
Not fancy but booths and low lighting. Hasn't been remodeled in but has its old charm. You're not coming there for ambiance - but for sure great food. It's not unattractive...I don't mean to say that - nor worn out...just not "fresh" or "new", if that's what you're looking for. Actually, if thats what you're looking for, you are better off in Beverly Hills...but you won't get better food!
Steaks are amazing!!!
You can't go wrong with the food...just need a full credit card or wallet :-)
We celebrated our anniversary and were very happy with our choice to dine at Monty’s! The service was great, very attentive staff and all were extremely nice. The food is delicious and large in portion size. A little pricey as items are ala carte, but very worth it! The ambiance is definitely classic steakhouse and fairly quiet. Reserve a booth if you want to have a more romantic meal. We will be going back for sure!
Monte's never disappoints. From the moment we walked in till they wished us a good night, we were treated like we were special (in a good way). We both had the filet mignon and each was cooked perfectly to our choice. Melt in your mouth goodness. Service was top notch, many workers checked on us throughout dinner. The tab for the two of us including a few tasty adult beverages and tip was a bit over $200 -- worth every bit and we will return again.
Been coming to Monty's since they were in Encino. Classic American steakhouse. Don't change a thing!
Nice place nice food
Have not been for number of years
Food and service was excellently
My friend loved the decor like Chicago and will be back on her own
Waitress was very professional and good sense of humor.
This is the second time this has happened that we requested our steak to be cooked medium plus and it arrived raw! Not exaggerating and the waitress came over, took the steak back to cook it more, returned in less than 4 minutes and still was raw inside!
Love this restaurant! The food is wonderful, service was outstanding and the owner, Larry is the man of the hour! It’s a valley icon and must for those that love great steaks, the best oven roasted Brussel sprouts anywhere, and their hot fudge sundae is awesome!
Used to dine here for business as well as pleasure and have always appreciated the quality of food, service and ambiance. Have moved out of the area, so it was nice to have dinner here when in town.
Friendly and fun.
Never disappoints!!! Best steakhouse in the Valley, they nice a great drink
Dining at Monty’s is always a great experience-Michael and company make it a fun and enjoyable evening. Food service and ambience are top notch.
It's always a treat and a special occasion to have a meal at Monty's. Consistently good food and excellent service.
Very good, Will is a great waiter and my parents anniversary was great
We go to Monty's at least once a month. This time was good, but two times after we ordered something, the waiter came back to say they ran out. As they take our order you would think they would know what is left in the kitchen>
Heard about Monty's for years; it was so much better than I expected. I thought it was going to be the Smokehouse West; instead it's a more comfortable version of The Palm. Great food, huge portions, superb service (Rob). Next time I'm gonna split the chicken parmigiana... too big for one person, though you won't want to miss a bite. Salmon perfect; baked potatoes bigger than Idaho.
Always the best food with the best service. I drive 19 miles to have a meal at Monty's
Monty's never disappoints. The service is always top-notch especially if you dine in Amanda's section!! The Roquefort Salad is a favorite to share. Oysters are always fresh and flavorful. Onion Soup is excellent. The steaks are quality beef and the Chef prepares each order perfectly. Another favorite here is the Fried Chicken served with honey, mashed potatoes and peas. On rare occasions, we will splurge and order the Sundae which is worth the calories.
