My husband and I were delighted with the entire filet dinner. The ambience is very nice with excellent service. We were both disappointed and surprised that they do not offer a complimentary birthday dessert! At 75, I have enjoyed many delicious birthday treats at wonderful...More

We visited Montarra for the very first time and wished we had visited much sooner! The food - from appetizers to entrees - was beyond delicious. The stuffed mushrooms were freshly prepared and a meal unto themselves. The french onion soup is one of the...More

The atmosphere was nice. The wait staff was excellent. I ordered a pricey martini that was not very good, and I will drink almost anything. The food was above average but not amazing. For the price, I've had better.

I have never seen crab legs on menu. Sorry. Try Shaws in Schaumburg or Bob Chinn's in Wheeling, they have the best crab legs.
