We really njoyed our wonderful post-Valentine dinner. Our center cut filet mignons were perfect as well as the rest of our dinner. This was our first visit, and we are looking forward to returning for another great dinner soon. S.S.

The filet and braised short rib were outstanding as always. And the English toffee pudding was incredible.

Very nice. A bit noisy for my taste ... too many larger groups that seemed to think they had to talk over everyone else.

We usually go here a couple times a yr. our food this time was not as good as 6-8 months ago when we last went. The Rissoto was excellent, the petite Fillet Mignon was good, but more petite than last time. The Beet Bisque was different not bad, but it needed something to offset the sweetness. My Ribeye was cooked perfect, but slightly under seasoned. Last time it was perfect but still tender and very good. The Mac & Cheese and Frittes were great. My wife was not happy though with her French Onion soup. She said it was completely different than the last time and just not very good. Last time she raved to everyone about it. Her Salad was huge, best value on the menu, but the chicken was just plain chicken. Not much flavor. Our server seemed new, but did a fine job. We will go back, and hopefully the things my wife likes go back to how they were before.

We went for Valentine’s Day. Everything was wonderful! I love how the French Onion Soup is served in an onion. And the filet did not disappoint!

Best place in NW suburbs. You put this in Chicago and it’s worth triple.

We've dined at Montarra numerous times. The service is always friendly, but the real draw is the food. The menu has a good variety and the food quality/preparation is always excellent. The restaurant is located in an unassuming strip mall, but a great dining experience awaits inside.
