    I felt unwelcome as a single diner. My server did not check on me. The high-end tequila was not smooth, had a bite in it. The duck breast was very sinewy and overly chewy .

    Made reservation for 5PM. Very nice decor and good service without overbearing presence. Wife ordered French onion soup and 3 abalone tacos from appetizer menu. She thought soup was done well and not overly salty. The 3 tacos were small (appetizers) but she felt satisfied with the meal. I had the duck breast that provided several slices on top of Bok Choy, wild mushrooms, pancetta and shallots. I enjoyed the meal

    Best onion soup gratinee I’ve ever had. And I had many in France. Rest of our meals were excellent as well. A place to revisit often.

    The food was fantastic. Try the abalone tacos. I had the best pork chop ever. It's just great everything, and everyone who works there is just great people. Thanks to Charles and everyone!
    MontrioResponded on May 9, 2024
    Thank you very much for the kind words, we will certainly pass them along to the team. Our abalone tacos have been a one of our most popular new menu items. Best, The Montrio Team

    When in town, my husband and I have dined at Montrio (Bistro) and always enjoyed it. Due to the pandemic and a move out of the area, we haven’t been in a few years. Dining at Montrio last evening, we were surprised at the change in decor. It seems to be less unique, warm, and inviting. We also noticed that after placing our order, the lovely crusty loaf of warm bread was no longer offered. Our server, Concetta, was lovely and quite knowledgeable. The Jidori chicken entree my husband ordered was priced appropriately whereas my entree, the roasted basilla pepper and the only vegetarian option, was heavy on the rice and not priced appropriately: $33. The most flavorful part of my entree was the mole sauce. Desserts were amazing, but again, the former charm and warmth of the restaurant is missing.
    MontrioResponded on May 9, 2024
    Thank you for choosing to spend the evening with us. We are very happy to hear that Concetta provided you with such great service. It may not surprise you, but we have heard that once or twice before. I am saddened to hear you did not love all of your experience. We strive to provide great local, sustainable food at a value to our guests. We appreciate the feedback and hope that you will join us again, in the future. Best, The Montrio Team

    Wonderful service. The corn brûlée appetizer was so delicious, but rich, so definitely order it to share. Double pork chop was also a highlight.
    MontrioResponded on May 9, 2024
    Thank you for such high reviews. We certainly agree, the corn creme brûlée is a wonderful new addition to our menu. Best, The Motnrio Team
