Calamari starter was fantastic. Lunch was one salmon dish - terrific- and I had the lamb burger - great. Nice selection of wines. Highly recommended.

We had such high expectations and it just fell flat! We went for Mother’s Day early dinner at 5PM - around here peak dinner is at 7:30 - so we wanted to go earlier when it was slower. It took over 30 mins to even get a drink order in but yet there were only 3 total tables sat outside. After being there 45 mins we finally got to order drinks and dinner. The server took the order and double checked our order after each person ordered. They forgot the soup and salad to start - all of which came out incorrectly when they did bring it out (ordered no cheese), then they forgot the 2 sides we ordered, and then after another hour - we finally waved down someone to get the rest of our meal. Which then took another 15 mins to get a bowl of soup that came out wrong - asking for no cheese on minestrone shouldn’t be a hard ask! Not one single refill on water cups even after requested 3 separate times after dropping each plate of food. Our actual server came over a total of 4 times over a 2 hour period - Such a disappointment of service for a nicer restaurant. We all ate at separate times and it wasn’t very good quality - you could tell they had a hard morning and struggling to fulfill dinner orders.

We sat on the patio on a beautiful day. I had the mushroom pizza and my friend had the Monte Cristo sammie. Both were wonderful. Dessert was profiteroles and they were amazing!

The food was very good. I had fried calamari and the Hearts of Romaine salad. I had a little stomach ache about two hours later, but I attribute that to my first trip to a restaurant in over a year! It was a pleasure ordering food and having it brought to me.

We waited without being greeted for 15 minutes to get our reserved table.
My salad was missing a vital ingredient (pine nuts) but my friends were already done eating before the wait person visited our table to ask if we were finished. The food was not what it used to be. I’m not planning to go back.

Wonderful lunch outside on a very warm sunny day. The food and drinks are very good. So many items on the menu I want to try. So far I can say the hummus, grilled shrimp, and lemon tart are all excellent.

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.

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.

We sat outside and were disappointed with the plastic walls enclosing the patio. Having the walls did not feel as safe as the patio would’ve felt open. Otherwise the food was excellent and we wished we could’ve stayed for more cocktails

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 ...
