After a long event monti’s was amazing on almost all fronts. The steak and starters we had were all amazing, perfectly seasoned and cooked properly.

but… the special duck dish ended up being under cooked in the thigh & wing section. The parts of the duck that were cooked we were also delicious but y’all go dinged hard for under cooking tonight’s special. Wines and cocktails were all marvelous and a perfect temps. Damian our server was awesome and knowledgeable. I’m still coming back don’t worry

My wife and I visited here after wine tasting throughout Sonoma, The food was excellent. I had the pork chop and my wife had the Mac n cheese. We had a salad and soup to start. The only thing lacking was service. Unfortunately, our server just seemed preoccupied. Other than that, the outside seating and the food were great.

Wonderful lunch! Great EVERYTHING! Prices were a little too high. But I loved the grapefruit lavender drink. Also we had to deal with a pesky bee, but that is unavoidable sitting outside.

Service was a bit slow, took about 20 minutes after being greeted by our server before we got our cocktails. But considering it was a Friday night we had a great time! Food was delicious.

Met with a colleague for lunch on Friday. Oysters were fresh - perfect. Flash fried calamari were very good. Started with a Monti’s Mai Tai then glass of Jordan Chardonnay with the meal. Doesn’t get a whole lot better for lunch!

Since the pandemic the food has gone sideways. They have taken all their brunch items off the menu. Very disappointing because I loved this restaurant for years. Hopefully they will get back to their old menu

They totally ignored the special occasion and the service was really horrible. They were busy but our server stock friendly and engaged with every other table except ours. We were the oldest people there by a lot so maybe that was part of it. Never again.

To start, spouse’s Cosmo and my Manhattan were exceptional. Dungeness crab deviled eggs were nicely presented, ample serving and delicious. Requested and received a nice small pasta with butter & cheese from kid’s menu which my bride and I shared. Delicious as well. My Nieman Ranch pork chop was so, so good. Served piping hot and delicious with a wonderful gravy, fingerling potatoes and an accompanying salad that was terrific. My wife’s lamb burger was the best ever. And to top it off the profiteroles with Old Kentucky Bourbon butter pecan ice cream was out of this world. We must visit again soon.

The buratta starter and the flourless chocolate cake were delicious . I had the pork chop as an entree and it was sadly undercooked, along with too much sauce mixed into fresh greens it was just off putting. Many wait staff but it was rare that our server was at our table. Probably won’t go again unfortunately .

What we ordered:
appetizers: smoked salmon rillettes; and crab stuffed devil eggs
Dinner: Moroccan style king salmon; hanger steak; cauliflower as a side which is not on the menu I saw oline at home, after dinner.
Dessert: butterscotch pudding; flourless chocolate cake.
Every single item was awesomely delicious. We will definitely be returning. And the workers were very nice!!!!

Overall our dining experience was wonderful. Terrific server! Delicious food, their calamari appetizer is the best! We sat inside because of the heat and smoke. I felt the tables were too close together! Also, the busboy attempted to take my food away, and I was clearly still eating!

The food is great! The last few times there for lunch the service has been spotty-- from excellent to "non-existent" ....not sure what issue is but they seem to struggle a bit at lunch. Don't give up on them. The food is worth the wait! Be patient.
Try the crab-cauliflower brandade YUM!
