Cafe Monte Ratings and Reviews

We have eaten here a number of times and have always enjoyed CM.
Very nice meal and "good" service.
One recommendation, when customers want left over food to go "very good" service would be to take the plates to the back and box it for them there rather than having them box it themselves at the table (as you would expect at Dennys for example).

Cafe Monte is unique in Charlotte, in terms of the kinds of food available (French and French-influenced food served in a nice but casual and non-fussy environment. Because it is so good, it can also be busy during peak dining times. Use Open Table to reserve your table.

I had not seen the new decor and I loved it! I remember the former restaurant location and the vibe of the old was captured in the current. My husband ordered the wrong thing, no one's fault, so he did not enjoy the food as much as I did. The trout was really good. The 5 star however goes to the mussels I ordered. They were fantastic.
I plan to go again for a special dinner.

Very noisy , tables for 2 very very small not confortable. Nice atmosphere , I loved the music .
please don't serve the kind of stake I had .... Not good at all.
I will go back because I know food can be better than the stake.

The closest to a real French bistro (without the attitude) we've found in the region. The owner, Monte, is often present and his attention shows in the quality of the food and the operation of cafe. The food is good as it gets in Charlotte and the service is both attentive and knowledgeable. The bakery selection is small, but the quality is excellent. The only caution is it's easy to get enamored of a single dish (the crab & lobster crepes in my case) and not try the rest of the menu, which is a mistake as nothing we've had has been less than excellent.

My boyfriend loved his burger, and the fries were to die for. I ordered the french toast with berry compote. The topping definitely made the dish. It was delicious but next time I will have to try a crepe or benedict. My coffee with steamed milk was very good. Would recommend it to any coffee-lover as myself.

Our weeknight experience at Cafe Monte was excellent. The three of us shared the escargots--fabulous. My brother-in-law devoured the Beef Tips Bourguignon with the accompanying vegetables. My sister and I needed boxes for the leftovers from our entrees--the shrimp and artichoke crepes and the chicken with mushroom crepes--but oh, what tasty leftovers!

Wanted a quiet evening out for dinner. We both ordered crepes. He, the lobster/crab. Me, the shrimp/artichoke. The sauces were both delicate and delicious. Portions were generous...had enough for the next day! Espresso, a thumbs up, and our shared eclair, a great sweet treat!
Our wait staff was super. Not in our faces, but there when you wanted them. When I forgot my "baggie" on the way out, and our waitress brought to me. <3

Great for brunch with girlfriends. Service is inconsistent sometimes but that is the only quirk. Love the ambience. Cheerful. Casual enough or you can dress up a little and feel like u fit in. One of my favorite brunch spots.

My husband and I were celebrating our belated wedding anniversary (30 years) and it was a lovely experience. From the appetizers, the apple and brie one was to die for and the food was also good. The wine was also a good choice. Needless to say, I would go back every time I could!

Made a last-minute reservation to quench a craving for crepes. Server Laura had great timing, checking on us regularly but not enough to be intrusive. Food came out quickly and was very good. Especially enjoyed the live music, as it was loud enough to be heard but soft enough that we still could enjoy normal conversation. Although I've been to this restaurant several times for lunch, this was my first time having an evening meal there and definitely would return.

I've been to Cafe Monte' many times, lunch and dinner,but never with a coupon. I used a coupon for a bogo this visit and the service was as good if not the best I've had there. This was the first time I booked a birthday celebration dinner through open table with a note that it was for a birthday that they actually noticed my note. Most of my reservations are for groups and generally a celebration of some sort. I had originally booked for 5 but 3 canceled and I had to alter my reservation down to just 2. Seamless and fabulous. Cafe Monte' has become one of my favorites.
