This is my favorite restaurant in Charlotte. My husband and I have been coming here for years and the food is always excellent and we have tried almost everything on the menu. The staff is great too! If you're looking for a place to have a good meal - read no further and you will NOT be disappointed.

Cafe Monte is my go-to spot in Charlotte for a relaxing brunch/lunch with friends. Order a Prosecco to go with your lunch and enjoy the ambience! Great food and great service are the name of the game at Cafe Monte. Yoinwont be disappointed.

We went for Mother's Day on Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy. We started with appetizers of Charcuterie (cured meats and cheeses) and the Mediterranean olives and hummus. Both were good, but $12 for a few olives and hummus did not seem a good value. My husband and son both enjoyed their meals very much, Beef Short Rib... More

We sat outside enjoying the evening cool breeze and enjoying some wine and their French bread and butter. For dinner, I had Herb Basted Salmon with petite vegetables and mashed potatoes. The fish was done perfectly and was soooo good! Paired with a white sauvignon blanc, it was a smash! This place is great for visitors and locals alike. The... More

This was our first time and we had reservations for a Sat. night. We were taken on time and were pleasantly surprised with the caring and kindness showed by Conrad their host. We had a very nice waitress who really knew the menu and answered all our questions. All four of us really enjoyed our dishes. We will definately return.

I went for my 60th birthday! So excited to taste my first french food! The appetizer was the only thing good and it was cheeses and cured meats. The salads....and I love a good salad, the salads were under-whelming, tasteless, bland salads. I ordered the Beef Wellington. Came out covered in gravy. Why would you pour gravy over what is...

Our Saturday night visit started off inauspiciously with a version of musical chairs. Our original seating location was too close to a door used by staff to go in and out of the restaurant. The second spot was in a corner where two people had little arm room. Our third had to be moved because the maitre d inadvertently located... More

This visit for dinner was a disappointment. My chicken was very dry and I had a stomachache following the meal. I wonder if it wasn't fresh? My husband enjoyed his beef borguignon. This was the first time I have had a bad meal there.
