It was our 25th anniversary!
I usually provide this location as an option when I have business meetings and want to give guests solid options, accessible places, and a proven menu. Glad lunch reservations are possible. Appreciate the reception staff being attentive to members of parties who arrive at different times. Welcoming. Sensitive to the need for well-timed lunch hours.
As we've come to expect, the dining experience at Cafe Monte was a total hit. The food was excellent and the service from Lisa W. was great. Monte' has quickly become a reliable favorite for us.
I have recently been to Cafe Monte for brunch but this was the first time for dinner.
Food and Service were excellent.
Job well done
The door was excellent, served nice and hot. Our waitress was outstanding, very attentive but not overbearing. Unfortunately I don't remember her name. The one downside to the evening was the music. Too loud and intrusive. I would suggest the restaurant return to low canned music.
Cafe Monte is a go to spot for us. We enjoy the casual atmosphere and the solid cuisine. This visit was on a Friday evening when they have live music. It really adds to the ambiance. We started with a beet salad. I had the mussels which are always terrific. My wife had the French Onion soup which was good, but the portion size has shrunk. It was slightly larger than thimble. The service and timing was good. We were never rushed, and had time to enjoy our cocktails before ordering. We will return and recommend the restaurant.
Great food, menu, ambiance
Waiter had an attitude. Food delicious
It was ok something new to me
Valentine’s dinner. Early reservation as restaurant was booked at preferred time. Lisa was our server to our delight as she is the best! Restaurant seemed to purposely preserve space between parties to ensure privacy which we believe was very considerate and well thought-out. Lisa never rushed us but checked on us periodically. Another delightful dinner at Cafe Monte!
The food was outstanding and the service the best!
Wonderful meal from start to finish! French martinis to chocolate with grand marnier fondue and everything in between!! Great place anytime for any meal!
Great experience, as usual. We're regulars and have had only one time where there was an issue with the food. This trip was on Valentine's Day, so it was busy and a little noisy, but we expected it to be so. Food was good and service the same. Looking forward to our next visit.
Mike T. the waiter made the experience enjoyable.
My favorite girls’ lunch spot because food and service is always top notch. Great for date nights too.
All was excellent. Nothing else to say!!
this is my favorite French Bistro in Charlotte. My meal has never disappointed me. Had reservations and were seated on time even though the place was busy. Service was good. It was a birthday brunch. Never felt rushed to get us out.
The food was fabulous! The Mussels and Frites were yummy! Everyone loved their food - it was a party of 5 - all were pleased! The Wild Mushroom Crepe with Madeira Creame is nothing short of amazing. The menu is pretty mainstream French. The price points are very good. Also, I’ve done several wine dinners here and they were great! Overall a very good value. We’ll be back again and again.
The meal as usual was great, just wish the bartender could mix a DRY msrtini
Preengagement dinner. Atmosphere is fancy yet authentic. Food is great and service was fine. Live jazz made it extra nice.
Food OK... Service Almost OK... Pricing OK.. Just an OK restaurant. was better my first visit 9 months ago.
Had a greta time.Our waiter, Sean, made the evening recommending not only dishes but wine parings to go with our meal. If you go, ask for Sean.
Cafe Monte is always wonderful. This visit did not disappoint. We were a group of 6 and all ordered different menu items. Everyone was satisfied and happy!
Very good Waiter was ok but didn’t check on us or refill tea glass. Food was delicious
We specifically came for the lobster dinner, which is a special on Friday. The meal and service did not disappoint. The lobster was served with fries and a generous serving of asparagus. We requested fingerling potatoes instead. The staff was warm, accommodating, and professional.
The lobster was sweet, fresh, and delicious. I definitely could have eaten another 1.5 pound lobster! So, I'm sure we will head back on a Friday in the near future. Prices are fair, and this special is a good value.
There is a case of desserts by the bar. It never looks very full or as appetizing as it should. I love French pastries. We would have ordered dessert, if there were more options, and they were displayed in a more enticing way.
Cafe Monte is a favorite with locals for brunch, lunch, and dinner. The food and service are consistently good. The restaurant can get noisy. So, be prepared for a lively dining experience.
Always delicious food! If there is a wait, it is worth it. Ambiance is very cozy, although it can get loud when they are busy
As usual everything about Cafe Monte's was great! Such a wonderful neighborhood restaurant!
Vegetarian crepes were delicious
The menu is very eclectic and is consistently good. The flexibility of the kitchen in modifying an entree is truly appreciated. A very loyal following among our friends and well worth the visit if you are from out of town.
