Montarra, called the "hidden gem" of the Northwest Suburbs, is located in Algonquin. Whether it is the Black Angus Aged Steaks, or the delivered daily fresh seafood, Executive Chef Joshua Lynn, using the finest locally grown produce and locally raised beef, has created a menu of Contemporary American Cuisine with International influences that is sure to please everyone. With an extensive wine list, including over 40 wines by the glass and representing more than 10 countries world wide, it is sure to give even the most discerning diner an array of choices to accentuate Chef Lynn's amazing menu to create a most wonderful and memorable dining experience. Come in and enjoy Montarra, with its relaxing "water wall" and its two "Chihuly" inspired chandeliers, and experience downtown Chicago without the drive! Discover for yourselves why Phil Vettel of the Chicago Tribune gave Montarra “* * *” stars and wrote, “If Montarra were closer to the city, I would dine there often”.

    Montarra has always been our go to place for special occasions or just to enjoy a wonderful meal. However, something has happened to end that! Our last great meal at Montarra was July 2019. Since then, on two occasions, both my husband and my dinners (grouper and chilean sea bass) were dry and lacked the wonderful sauces and combination of flavors that were an expected Montarra standard.

    Have been there in the past and very happy. Our server was very nice, however once we ordered our meal took at least half an hour to come to table. My scallops were cold, but my husband said his filet was good.

    One of the top restaurants in all of Illinois is Montarra located in Algonquin. Fine dining at its finest, Executive Chef Joshua Lynn's offerings are all outstanding, appetizers through desserts. Even their drinks menu is creative. I don't say this often, but Montarra is a Bucket List restaurant. Service was very good, prices are moderate, beautifully designed space... but the food is for those that appreciate the finer things in life. Five stars in every category. Montarra is as good as, if not better, than the best restaurants in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Trust me, I've been there. Thank you, Chef Lynn. You and your team are doing outstanding work. I'll be back soon.

    As always, the food and service was stellar; the noise level was exceptionally loud. Still a favorite spot though.
