Cafe Monte Ratings and Reviews

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.

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.

Although my wife and I dine at Café Monte at least once per month, and have for several years, this was our first-ever brunch. We were met by friends after church this past Sunday, and by 12:30 pm, the time of our reservation, there was not a table to be had. We were greeted by Lisa, one of our favorite waiters at Café Monte. Rather than attempt to describe what each person ordered, I will simply describe the portions as generous and the quality as excellent. Bloody Marys and sparkling wine only added to the festivities.

I looked at the menu before getting to the restaurant and decided on the Trout Almondine, which my friend had the last time we were there. But when the waiter repeated the special, I had that instead. Scallops with a vegetable risotto, was delicious. we started with the endive salad and had leftovers. A perfect lite lunch the next day. The live music added to the flair being a Friday night, and the place was absolutely full. Good thing we had reservations. A consistently good and comfortable restaurant.

One of my favorite restaurants...I had Birthday free entree ...enjoyed a steak! My daughter paid for only her meal and is why the above amount is smaller than usual....having this freebie is a great way to dine there....

We were a party of six who sat outside. The waiter was also covering tables inside and couldn't get out to us as often as he wanted, but he apologized, brought us fondu and desserts and was fun and personable. The food was lovely from the creamy risotto, the perfectly cooked steak, to the delicate crepes. This was my first time there for dinner. I also recommend lunch and brunch. Their omelettes are lovely.

The menu here is pretty diverse, and French inspired. Whether you are in the mood for a personal pizza, mussels, fritz or lobster this place will have something for you. My recent visit included NY Strip. I requested medium rare, and would say it arrived medium. However the steak was flavorful, tender and quite large, so good value overall in my opinion. My wife had the scallops, which were on special. Excellently prepared on a bed of risotto. Word of caution, we thought we ordered a side salad with the entrée (a la carte). We were billed for $9 regular salads (each)!! Be sure to clarify.
I would recommend this restaurant, and we patronize it a few time a year ourselves.

Zen is one of our favorite restaurants! Food is always fantastic- we get the blue cheese calamari EVERY time as our appetizer-just delicious. I have had entrées from every category and all are great so you will always find the perfect delicious choice no matter what you are in the mood for! Staff are always knowledgable about the menu and perfectly attentive. Great choice!

We were using a groupon. Staff were very friendly. Waiter was not rushed and took his time with us. Our food arrived quickly and tasted wonderful. We had smoke salmon and Beef Short Rib Bourguignonne. It was so good!!!
