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.

Great brunch, lunch and dinner! We especially love the nutella crepes. The steak frites is perfect, but there are great salad options as well.

Open from breakfast to late (for Charlotte) and consistently good food. An excellent staff has had very little turnover in the years I've been going there which is always a good sign. The food is consistently good. There is pleasant outdoor seating. The only drawback for me is the somewhat intrusively french sound track On the other hand they are... More

Brunch with the family at 1:45 on Sunday. Ordered mimosas and beignets as soon as we sat down. Very disappointed to be told by our waiter that they had run out of beignets. How is that possible? Was it poor inventory management or laziness in the kitchen to not make another batch for the late day brunch? Then when we... More

We are very sorry about the situation with Beignets on Sunday. Our issue was with the fryer used to produce the product which had a malfunction. I promise we will have them for you next time. Please email me at msmith@cafemonte.net so that I may send a more formal apology and invitation to return. Again thank you, without comments we... More

My fiancé loves French food so this was a natural place for us to have his birthday dinner. Cafe Monte has such great reviews so we were both looking forward to a great meal and a nice night out. We made reservations for a table but were told that if bar seating was available when we arrived, we were welcome... More

My family and I visited Charlotte for the weekend. After a disappointment the previous morning we decided to try Cafe Monte on our last day. We're glad we did! The waiter was very courteous and helpful. They had great tasting gluten free waffles for the kids. My omelette and other options were delicious. So between the service, food and atmosphere,...

I cannot believe how insanely crowded Cafe Monte is. It is a lovely cafe for brunch and breakfast. Love egg benedict with smoked salmon. They should lose the side of potatoes. It is not needed. Great service and great food for Sunday morning.

I was in the Southpark area recently and wanted a nice lunch. I remembered someone recommending Cafe Monte so I decided to give it a try. I started with the French Onion Soup which was good, but certainly not as good as you might expect from a "French" restaurant. For my entree, I choose the shrimp and artichoke crepes. I... More

Thank you very much for reaching out via Trip Advisor. I am sure that we could have done much better on all fronts. Generally our food is the star and we focus on fresh, made from scratch traditional dishes. We have been training a new line cook, perhaps and explanation but not an excuse. Please allow us to give you... More

Casual nice restaurant. Food was not the best but still great tasting. Loved the hummus and olive Mediterranean app. We both had the herb Salmon it has flavors and was filling but wasn't the best I had. Killer Hendricks martini gave a good buzz that followed a tuxedo tasty thrills dec cake that put myself over the edge in eating.... More
