Somewhat difficult to review. I hadn't been to Monty's for maybe 20 years and found things to be substantially different. I don't recall outdoor dining, but I do remember a less noisy ambiance. The view from our table overlooked the water and was quite pleasant. As for the food, the she-crab soup was all right but nothing special --- too dense for me. The salmon and the grouper were excellent. Wine drinkers enjoyed their wines. The key lime pie and the brownie also rate high marks. Service was friendly and helpful but not distinguished --- water request at the beginning of the meal was filled at the end of the meal after another request.
The food was cold and tasteless. They couldn’t replicate my son’s cocktail. I would never go near the place again
Went for dinner with friend. It was last evening in town and wanted to dine somewhere nice but also casual. This was perfect!! It's on marina so beautiful view day or night. If you enjoy seafood I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is so fresh and very tasty. If you like cider beer the Strongbow is great with their fish and chips. Hands down best seafood around!!
Went New Year’s Eve & reservation was ready, food was very good, friendly waiter too. Surprisingly quiet but that was nice. Would definitely do that again!! Fun vibes too!
Ci siamo trovati bene, il locale è sulla marina offre una splendida vista specialmente al tramonto. Abbiamo mangiato bene anche se nel menù online appare il lobster, ma non c'era nel menù del locale. Abbiamo mangiato delle jumbo claws dal menù raw bar (4 pcs = 113$!!) un po' costoso... e un lobster roll. Cibo buono, servizio gentile e amichevole.
Waitress was outstanding!! Great drink and dinner recommendations
The only reason the rating is over a 1 is due to the view. It was nice being on the water though quite cold and no heat lamps outside. The hostess was very rude when she sat us, however the rest of the wait staff was fine. We got there at 8:30 on a Sat night so we weren't really thinking we would be pushed out when the clock hit about 9:50 but we were and it was very uncomfortable. Who would think that a restaurant that close to South Beach would have the carpets rolled up BY 10:00 on a Sat night? The food was below average with a less than exciting menu. Will not go back & wouldn't recommend for dinner, maybe lunch...only for the view.
Fun nightlife. Good happy hour
Place for crab or shrimps , no taste at all. And you pay the price for it 33$ for crab claw No worth it!
We enjoy Monty's, menu is diverse enough, friendly staff, great views of the Mariana and walking distance. Parking is also available for non-locals - definitely a 'SoBe' spot for everyone on the beach :)
Food ok. Nothing extraordinary. The dessert was better. Brownie with vanilla ice cream was warm and tasty. Service is better than food. Nice staff. The place was crowded and the waiter and food came fast. But don't expect high end ambiance or tasteful plates. Its better for young drinkers and college students who like very noisy music with a view. Everything was so chaotic that the waitress didnt have time to check if we actually had reservations.in the other hand that was better because they re not complicated and you get inmediately what you re looking for: A sit! Overall we had a good time because we chose a place indoor full of tv screens with a wide variety of channels. We re a family with an 11 y/o daughter. We ate and left fast. No complains.
Great location. One of the best places for conch fritters. Outstanding desserts. Also sweet potato fries. Good service.
Monty's is always great, my husband and I appreciate that we have such a place in South of Fifth where most other restaurants are overpriced. I hope we won't lose Monty's to the 300 Alton Miami Beach Marina development project.
We had a wonderfull night. Food was great with a very happy atmosphere. Friendly service. Monty's is a very good option for good sea food
Food is okay - not great. Service was slow - and has been the few times I have eaten here. Fun place for kids.
We had a decent helpful informed waiter. The table was sticky and gross. We asked 3 times to have it cleaned and then just ended up getting a cloth from another table and doing it ourselves. Food truly forgettable and the scene could be drastically improved if they had a manager on site up front . Hostess was bored and checking her phone every 2 mins. My salad was horrible and the calamari was the only thing worthwhile...not going back there.
The raw bar was great, and during happy hour, great prices also. Service excellent. Music is pretty loud, but does make for a lively atmosphere. There is a big bar area which would make for a good hangout with drinks and friends. Head for the public parking, it is free and very easy, but not well marked!
We had a great time and are going back in a couple of days with more friends!
Fun food. Good raw bar. Reasonable pricing. Great atmosphere. Has a swimming pool in the middle. Out door overlooking the bay. Go at sunset.
Made our reservation through Opentable well in advance. Arrived at the restaurant which was not very well marked and had trouble figuring where to park (no signs). Walked (and rode into the restaurants, my wife use a mobility device) and the snippy hostess wanted to send us to the back of the property to a "picnic table (benches with no back). Finally (reluctantly) put 2 table of 2 together for our party of 4. Tables were very sticky and napkins actually stuck to them. The waiter was very nice but very busy. Portions were small, served in a haphazard manor, and not in a timely manor. Would only recommend this place for alcoholics as a pickup joint.
The food was awesome and so was our waitress.. The stone claws were amazing!
Monty's has always been a great place to relax in front of the water, good food & service, great views and location.
The food is great but the service was awful. The waitress & busboy had an attitude and they took a long time providing any type of service. The restaurant was not full & a faster service would be expected.
Watch the sun go down at the bar . . . .
The bar-keep was great so we rode bikes right back and went 2X in 1 day. . . .
The food wasn't worth the big amount of money spent. On the other hand the service was very good, nice waiter from Paris :)
I got a reservation for 10 just to show up and them turn me away because they close at 10. Get it together guys!
Love this place, however, not so much this time. Reservation was at 9pm. Place was moderatly busy. Hostess had our reservation with a nice table outside, as I had specified in the reservation. We were seated however this would be the last time we would have human interaction. We waited for about 20 mins before asking the buss person to send over our server. This did not work. A six top was seated at this time, we knew this wouldnt be good for us. Sure enough the waitress came over to them. My date was furious and wished to leave the establishment. This calibur of restaurant with location and great food sells it self. It makes me sad to see bad customer service ruin it. Thank god lincoln road is so close, had a great dinner there.
Great spot on the harbour. Casual yet attentive service.. all ages, food was very good and service way above average. Was surprised people were allowed to smoke at table outside.. the only negative.
