Food is pretty good. The service was pretty bad. Prices are high. Locale is good. Plenty of parking. Outside dining is nice in the front of the restaurant, but pretty much sucks on the side alley.

Love Monti’s. Such a great place to go with friends and have a lovely lunch. The food is delicious and the service is almost always great. Good location with plenty of parking. And really nice outdoor dining available.

Outdoor seating was great. Service was outstanding. We ordered the hummus with pita and fried calamari starters. The hummus was delicious. I had the lamb burger which was very tasty. Monti’s is one of our favorite restaurants.

I had made reservations for a Sunday birthday brunch, with your BREAKFAST in mind- person on the phone confirmed it- “best place for brunch” and info online all about, only to show up and NO breakfast on the menu. So we left. Was such a bummer turn off events for our special planned morning there..

I've been to Monti's many times, but it was my son's first time. He was blown away by the quality of the food and is planning on going back next week with a friend, even though I gave him a list of other places to eat.

Waiter(s)didn’t introduce themselves, no name tags
Mac & cheese dry.
We kept asking for water, bread.
Heaters not on, butane had to be changed.
No smiles, hurried attitude.

I’ve been to Monti’s three times just to relish their Sole Almondine. It is so delicious that I haven’t tried anything else. Maybe I’ll try the salmon next time ... but that sole is SO tasty! Literally one of the best dishes ever ...

Always a delicious go to fav with a variety of choices. Sat outside with heat lamps overhead (best for warmth)! Gracious servers, as we sat for some time to catch up with friends. Had been over a year since being comfortable dining, even outside! Make a reservation, as they are always busy, especially weekends.

The service and menu were wonderful. I felt the food was well priced. Since it was cold outside , they had very efficient heaters. The tables were nicely arranged according to COVID rules.

We've dined at Monti's around 4-5 times now and they never disappoint. From very friendly and professional hosts and hostesses, wait staff, busers, to excellent and creative offerings, it's all been very impressive. Can't wait to go back.

I like Monti's. I've eaten here many times. 1st time since Covid hit. I was really pleased that even though we had to eat outside, the food was still very good and the service was as good as ever, maybe even a little better. Wonderful lemon drop cocktail. Can't wait to go back.

Outside dining of course under Covid but, well-spaced and plenty good heaters. The food was excellent, great beverages and pleasant service: attentive but not hovering. Looking forward to the next time, ideally inside and hopefully with their full menu back when safely feasible!

Monti’s is always enjoyable, good food, friendly service, nice ambiance. What I appreciate is that, unlike a number of other restaurants, Monti’s did not raise the prices or add a Covid surcharge. And my pork shoulder steak was especially tasty and lean this time. We will return again soon.
