Cafe Monte Ratings and Reviews

Hectic Sunday brunch - always hard to find parking at this spot (valet parking anyone?). As usual, the place was busy with a variety of groups and couples (there is always a birthday or an baby shower in one of the larger tables). We got seated quickly and ordered the large charcuterie- our favorite appetizer Because it is generous and the pate is excellent. Seafood omelette and crab and lobster crepes followed. Both solid but nothing to rave about. This is the third time we get the same server and he is just devoid of any kind of personality or customer engagement, so "efficient" is the best I can do to rate him. Overall, this place is solid.

Cafe Monte is Diane's favorite restaurant and we both enjoy dining her. The food was delicious - I had wild mushroom crepes and Diane had pizza. Both were delicious. We shared a bottle of Louis Latour Pinot Noir which was excellent. Paul, our waiter did a wonderful job of watching over us without interfering with our time together. Altogether, a great dinner.

It is a favorite place for any family occasion. It is also one of the first choices for lunch with friends..My family from D.C. finds it a special place in Charlotte for good food and they love the ambience of the place. It has a feeling of warmth, exceptional cuisine and exceptional service.
It has all the makings of classy dining in Charlotte.

Another outstanding experience! I've reviewed Café Monte so many times, I'm running out of superlatives. So, this time, I'll simply comment on the service. Richie was a pleasure: His service was as professional as he was personable.

The staff was friendly and warm, and the food was truly wonderful.. the flavors were tremendous and everything was beautifully prepared and presented. I ordered 3 different "Petit Plats" so I could try all of the choices that appealed. I enjoyed every last bite. I want to go back and eat there again today, and tomorrow and the next day...

We had a reservation. They seated us promptly. Our table was just what we requested. The service was perfect. We got our coffee 5 minutes after sitting. The waiter made an excellent suggestion for a breakfast pastry. We had the Chocolate/almond croissant; the best pastry I ever had. I had the classic eggs Benedict which did not disappoint. My husband the ham and cheese omelet; An excellent choice. I ate his grain toast and jam...yum. My only ding was that the coffee was 5 dollars. The coffee was good and plenty. I thought the environment was pretty. I almost felt I was in Paris? I will go again to try the dinner ítems. We had had a great time.

This is my second time at this restaurant and it did not disappoint - even on New Year's Eve. The blackened swordfish steak was excellent - and was accompanied by roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus. My husband had the trout amandine, which was served with fingerling potatoes and french green beans. He enjoyed his meal too. And for dessert we split the warm beignets. They were good but not of the same caliber as Cafe Du Monde. Our waitress, Rachel, was very helpful, assisting with our meal choices. We will return!

We ordered an appetizer and our food was delivered before the appetizer got there so we wound up cancelling the order. The toast was barely toasted and the cappuccino was barely warm. Service was ordinary at best.

Both food and service was outstanding. Food has a french flair, and highly recommend the escargot and duck. We were celebrating my father's 93rd birthday, and all 3 generations found entrees they enjoyed. Dessert was especially delicious. Service was wonderfully attentive.

Waiter was pleasant but not attentive, no expressions, food was served in a rush manner placed in front of us without a mention of what was presented before us.
Also noted a regular (appears)was addressed and acknowledged by everyone in service seated next table over while we were just assigned as that table.

We wanted to take my mother somewhere nice over the holidays without going excessively over budget. Cafe Monte was perfect. The food was an interesting French American style and excellently prepared. Our server was helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is nice, with everyone having individual tables and a fitting decor. We will be returning.

Always a favorite! The bartender makes a perfect bruised martini and all of the staff is knowledgeable and attentive. We had escargot and artichoke appetizers....would have preferred fresh artichokes but was tasty. Beef burgundy was tender and rich in flavor. My companions had the trout and the chicken mushroom crepe and refused to give up a bite!! Thanks

We utilized a Groupon from Cafe Monte. We had an early reservation so there was no waiting. I would not recommend ordering from the specials . We did and both sent back .
Reordered from regular menu and everything was very good .

Cafe Monte maintains its place as my favorite SouthPark spot for breakfast /brunch (Served until 3pm daily). My favorite is the Florentine omelette, but the sausage pizza is also delicious-especially the crust. Service by Javier (always with a smile) was excellent. Wish I lived nearby!
