I visited Mare&Monte with my husband for Mother’s day! Through all the restaurants in the are We picked Mare & Monte to spend this special day because we absolutely love their fresh and homemade food and also we feel very comfortable with all the staff. Scrumptious gnocchi’s and tiramisu! An absolute gem in Haddonfield!

Went here tonight to celebrate Mother’s Day with my wife and children. Absolutely did not disappoint. The salad, octopus and spaghetti seafood specials were really good. Also loved the Gnocchi. Leave room for dessert - wonderful choices! The service was excellent and my wife completely enjoyed the evening. Definitely will be back again.

The food is ok... the gnocchi was tasty but forgettable. The real problem was the lack of professionalism and their pathetic response after the hostess spilled a bowl of marinara sauce down the sleeve of my jacket and all over my husband's shoes. Everyone knows that accidents happen in life. Nobody cries over spilled marinara. This unfortunate slip up would've been totally fine but instead, the hostess showed no emotion and took my jacket into the back to "clean it" without allowing me to follow. Meanwhile my husband was attempting to scrub sauce off his shoes and pant leg. I asked the other hostess to please find out about my jacket that had personal items in the pockets. The first hostess then came out with my wet jacket, 'cleaned" with who knows what, handed it to me and (I kid you not) instructed me not to wear it. I had to ask for a bag to put it in so it didn't drip everywhere. We then asked to speak to the manager.
He came over to our table as if it was a chore despite stating he was aware of what'd happened. He offered no apology for the inconvenience. He said, "she's been working for 12 hours"...curious as it was only 3pm and irrelevant to our experience. We asked for the food to be wrapped up to go and for a reduced bill. He said, 'because of this?'...ummm, yes sir, because of this! (Unless you'd like to pay for the dry cleaning instead). He finally agreed, we gave the waiter $20 and we left. I'd welcome a conversation with the owner so he/she can be made aware of who is representing them.

Went on a Monday so was very quiet. Only one server working but was very attentive. Food was excellent. Octopus could have been grilled a little more to make it a touch crispier but between that, the beets and mascarpone, my gnocchi entree and my gf’s chicken mare monte that’s the only slight criticism we had. Will definitely go back again.

I love Haddonfield, and their restaurants tend to be lovely and quiet. This experience, however, ruined my date night. The food was delicious, that is true, so I recommend take out if you live nearby.

So we made reservations and looked forward to a nice evening. We sat down and they had to bring water glasses to the table because it wasn't even fully set. Then assistants poured our water twice before we even saw a server. We were already ready to order but he seemed awkward. Even mumbled something about the octopus I ordered which didn't make me feel comfortable with my choice, then started to walk away without even asking if we wanted drinks. My boyfriend had to stop him for a coke.

The food, as I said, was delicious. But I could barely enjoy it because a table of 6 women on the other side of the room was talking and CACKLING...SO LOUD the whole time. When I say loud, I mean intolerable so, to the point that i couldn't even hear my date speak and other customers seemed to be rushing out. When we mentioned something to our server (who never checked back on us once) we were told that "they know the owner). If that's the case, I doubt the owner would be happy with them driving customers away.

By the time we were finished, we might have looked at dessert, but just couldn't wait to leave the cackling shrews and get out of there. Never mind, it took 30 minutes to get the check anyway.

Food good, service bad, and being unable to control a table that is disrupting the entire restaurant? Unacceptable. I hate being disappointed in a restaurant I chose.

Lighting is dim but grey, not warm and inviting. General sense of drabness. Food was good and menu is extensive with a lot of appealing choices. Staff was solicitous if a bit too busy about checking in.

I wish I didn't have such a bad experience. We had high hopes and the Mare Monte did not deliver. The Cacia e Pepe was bland and they tasted more like butter sauce than cheese indicative of using a lower quality cheese. Also, the Linguine Fra Diavolo also lacked flavor and spice. The grilled octopus and caprese salad also lacked flavor.

In general, I could get the same quality meal at a local pizzeria and there are at least 10 Italian restaurants within a 5-mile radius I would recommend before this one, including some pizzerias.

The service left a lot to be desired but I will chalk it up to the server just having an off day. The assistant servers were very attentive.

Overall, I expected a higher quality experience given the Haddonfield address. I would not recommend going because every dish we tried was sub-par, not just one item.

Everyone is so nice! And very attentive! Love the mushroom risotto and I tried the kale salad for the first time and loved that as well. Our friends just started weight watchers so one chose the branzino and she said it was excellent. My husband loves the octopus but wishes it would be served with arugula or something like that instead of corn & beans! And our other friend enjoyed the veal dish! Cudos!

The food was great and our waiter was awesome. Only concern was not being greeted as soon as we came into the restaurant. We waited a few minutes to be greeted and waited while our table was cleaned outside. Other than that hiccup, we had a great experience and will return.

Food was good; service fine. I thought the table next to us was too close, certainly not six feet away. As the irritating music was loud, the people at the table next to us started to shout. That means spreading droplets which made us nervous so we left without ordering dessert. I think they have enough room to better space tables.
