Wonderful food, drinks and service. Makes me think of somewhere I’d eat in the city.
Food and drink are wonderful here! my only small complaint is the noise level. Not conducive to conversation as somehow we always manage to be seated near a large loud group. but overall highly recommended as there are not a lot of upscale good restaurants in the area.
Luckily our table was far from one of the larger ones where a lady was talking and laughing as though no one else was around for miles. I felt bad for the people closer by. I think management should maybe do something in these situations and I'm just glad it wasn't as disturbing across the whole restaurant where I was seated.
It was our 1st time there! From the minute we walked in, it was Awesome
The food Amazing!!
Service was Spectacular
Everything we ordered was so good
We Will be back!!
Nice little restaurant, but i felt the grouper, and the sea bass we ordered was cooked too well done. The fish should flake off, and not come apart in chunks. Very good flavoring and sauce though.
The food was very good and the service was excellent. We will certainly dine there in the future
The restaurant was excellent! We always have a great time here!
It was amazing from food to service.
This is the best meal in the Northwest Suburbs I have had since moving out of the city 5 years ago. My wife and I came here for a date night and were blown away.
This is the best Filet Mingnon I have ever had. Normally I prefer Ribeye because it's jucier, but after 1 bite of my wife's Filet I immediately knew I ordered the wrong steak (keep in mind, the Ribeye was still solid).
The appetizers, drinks, service, desserts, and ambiance were everything we had gotten used to in the City and more.
I'm so glad we found this place as we will be back for years to come.
We love this place, great food, great people..... ambiance is fabulous, a little bit of everything for whatever you like. We did all small plates and bottle of wine this time.
Always our favorite place to dine. Outstanding service, food, drinks
Great service from the greeter to our server herself. Always good food and drink. The unique specials on the menu are tasty and worth trying. Can be a bit noisy but not such a distraction that it can’t be overcome. We would recommend Montarra. Reservations are a good idea.
Always exceptional food and service at Montarra.
The food was delicious and served at an appropriate pace that allowed us to enjoy our time in conversation while also enjoying our meal.
Montarra has always been our favorite restaurant in the county. They never disappoint. I had the red grouper last night and I’ve never had a dish were the flavors were so fresh. It was absolutely delicious!
A little tool loud but food & service excellently
One of our better experiences at Montarra. Food was very good, and our server, Casey, was prompt with service.
This was our first visit to Montarra in several years. The menu had a wide variety of offerings. The food was excellent and the service very good. The restaurant was busy so the noise level was a a bit high for quiet conversation. Definitely planning on a return trip.
We always think of Montarra when it comes to celebrating a special occasion. It. Never. Disappoints. New chef Joshua Lynn...you’re pulling it off beautifully! The only suggestion that came up in our party was that maybe implement a seasonal dessert choice, although the existing choices are still spectacular!
The food was excellent and the service was very good. The only slight hiccup was that it was a little noisier than we were expecting it to be, someone at the next table having a love affair with the "F" word, but we realize that is not the restaurant's fault.
The servers were attentive and we would recommend your restaurant without hesitation. Thank you for acknowledging our anniversary on the menus and on the dessert plate. That was a nice touch.
As always . . . a perfect dining experience in every aspect.
The bouillabaisse was overwhelmingly spectacular.
Love celebrating special occasions here!
Very disappointed with the food. Server was attentive and friendly. Did not enjoy the "bread" basket. It was filled with some type of strangely seasoned chips that had an unusual smell and were not tasty. No choice was given for another bread. My daughter had a ribeye which she said was ok. "OK" is not what we were looking for. I had shrimp and scallop "De Jonghe". Best I can say is "so-so". We had a dessert. It was an apple dessert and neither of us was blown away. I don't consider myself difficult to please but when a restaurant presents itself as special and has higher than usual prices, then I expect a special meal.
Andrea, Ben, Gina and all the staff treat you like family. Always top notch service!
We have been celebrating our anniversary here for several years and this will be our last time. When we got seated we were waiting 20 minutes for a server to come to our table. My husband had to get up and ask the hostess. When she finally came she complained that the kitchen was backed up - something that we shouldn't have heard about. She came by about 4 more total times and that was it. For those prices and a special occasion and as repeat guests we were sadly disappointed. We had ordered appetizers, a bottle of wine, and 2 highly priced meals. Wish it was a better experience. The past 2 years it has been like this.
A wonderful double birthday celebration. Great daily specials and server suggestions.
Montarra clearly goes above and beyond in preparing their food and seeking unique flavor combinations. We had several small plates and I have to say the fish tostadas may have been the best thing I have eaten this year!
Staff was very friendly not too overbearing. Food had a great taste and presentation. Yes, we would come again.
Food not cooked correctly twice had to send it back
Excellent. We were there to celebrate a birthday which I
noted at the time of the reservation. When we arrived and were given our menus, all of them had Happy Birthday printed on the menu. What a great experience.
Amazing food and terrific service.
Orders were wrong, food was cold. Server was slow service was slow and it wasn’t that busy. Food was under cooked. Got charges for a meal we didn’t order
Our 2nd time at this restaurant. 1st time was superb, sadly this time was disappointing. I ordered the bouillabaisse and it was very bland. Had a tummy ache afterwards. My husband ordered the sea bass dish and was very happy with it. With the high ceilings, the noise level made it difficult to talk over our table for two.
Food and service were excellent. We would definitely dine here again. If at all possible, it would be helpful if some type of sound absorbers could be mounted on the ceiling, we traveled about 40 min and would again because food and service were wonderful.
Food and service was excellent.
We had a great meal, but our server was not very friendly, and her attitude was the only negative in an otherwise wonderful meal.
The people at Montarra Grill, from the moment we walked in , then to the bar for cocktails, and finally to our table, were great. The food excellent! I had Waygu beef and my wife the Sea bass. Both done to perfection. The only issue, and it was more ours than Montarra was the noise level of the place. They were very busy with several large parties. So, as I say the issue was ours. Everyone was having a great time and so were we. Top marks for a fine restaurant that we will again patronage soon.
Always great food!
