We had our annual Christmas lunch at Montecito. The service was very good as was the food and the ambiance. One of our workers had a small baby and they brought a high chair and made sure everything was ok. I definitely recommend this place.

It is a beautifully decorated modern to high tech place. Not loud or noisy, spacious. Food can be termed medium to good. Service is good attentive wait staff. Location is also good . Need more innovation in food.

Atmosphere was nice, service was mediocre, nothing great but nothing bad either. Drinks were very good. I did not enjoy my main (may just be what I had chosen) however the rest of my party did enjoy their meals. Was an ok dinner, nothing special.
