    Have had many great brunches and highly recommend for brunch. I brought 6 relatives to dinner for my birthday based on the invite with a free entree Will stick to the Palm for dinner and Cafe Monte for brunch. left whole NY strip because it was the toughest I have ever experienced. Even worse after I got home and checked my receipt I found that paid for it even though I gave the server my printed voucher. Keep up the good brunches.

    We arrived early for reservation. My only complaint is that the hostess could have done a better job. She said we would have to wait for our reservation time which is fine but if it were my restaurant, I would have the hostess tell us they would see if they could get us in sooner but suggest a drink at the bar while we wait. The bartenders were too busy to assist all the people waiting for a table. You could have made a lot of money by having a bartender dedicated to people waiting for a table. Weather was nice, could have done this outside even.

    Very disappointed. We have eaten here previously. #1 The hostess was rude. We made reservations weeks before. I even called prior to decrease our size from 6 to 4 as a courtesy. She sat us in the back next to the toilets. We four were polite and well dressed. Our teenage children are well behaved. When we asked to change she was defensive and said the other tables (only 7 total customers at the time in the entire place) were for customers with reservations. We had reservations! #2 The establishment was cold in temperature. The food was delayed and ill-prepared. Eggs were overcooked and waffles still wet inside. #3. Cost over priced for breakfast $150??? without alcohol. #4 Our server was excellent. He deserves a raise. Kind and patient. Helpful. I feel sorry that he works there if the management is anything like the hostess.

    Overall the visit was fine. The servicer was responsive but overall the service was slow. The noise level was a little high but it was a Friday night and quite busy. The food was good but the prices are climbing.

    Boeuf Bourguignon and duck confit/potatoes for the two of us. Good Languedoc Cabernet wine. Lisa was a knowledgeable and efficient server. Experienced and knew restaurant operation. Not too loud even though moderately busy. Often an older clientele and this night it was a mix. Sophisticated clients, for sure (Charlotte standards). A favorite for midweek dining.

    made the reservation for a birthday lunch and indicated as such on the reservation. When I arrived, I mentioned this was for a birthday, the hostess said she would let our waiter know. When it came time for dessert, I made mention of a birthday coupon, and he said" good to know it was a birthday celebration" and then brought the dessert with the candle. Other than the internal lack of communication about the reason for the meal, the food and visit was excellent...

    I eat at Cafe Monte regularly. Yesterday, our meal took longer than usual and we had no silverware. I know you are going thru issues just like everyone else but it was sad to see this. Our waiter was nice but obviously had too many customers to handle at one time.

    I have been dining at Cafe Monte for years. The service is always fantastic, and the food is always delicious. My personal favorite is the salmon with mashed potatoes and veggies at lunch. I also love the French onion soup. I try to dine there at least once a week! Customers are dressed anywhere from casual to dressy "ladies who lunch." Highly recommend! Make sure you have reservations, because it is a popular place.

    This is a real "go to" place in Charlotte. Feels like a French bistro and menu reflects same. Short rib Bourguignon is memorable. Service has always been excellent, and Jose was on the mark. Very good for special occasions.

    I love the old world European ambience in this restaurant. Our server Lisa was just perfect, not too much attention, not too little attention. The French martinis were superb and our meal was absolutely divine. My husband had the duck which was crispy and succulent and I had the trout which was also cooked perfectly. You must also try the beignets if you come. This is one of my favorite places in Charlotte.
