Came here with my boyfriend. We're new to Cambridge and working our way through the restaurants one by one. We had the Gnocchi poutine, and a flat bread with bison sausage i think? The poutine was underwhelming... Gravy lacked flavor and it wasn't very hot. As a result, the curds wouldn't soften and would have liked the Gnocchi better maybe... More

Had a great experience on a weeknight at Montys celebrating a family birthday. The food and drinks were really enjoyed by all in our party. We ordered a number of dishes and shared amongst the table. One of the highlights was the Lost in the Woods pizza as recommended by our server. There was a good selection of craft beers... More

I have been to Monty's on multiple occasions for both small dining experiences and private parties. The food is always wonderful and arrives in good time. While some say the portions are small, I find them to be perfectly sized for my appetite. For parties, Monty's offers a unique and cozy atmosphere. When you combine the good food, atmosphere, and...

The atmosphere is great - if you're popping in for a quick drink and a bite because you don't want to cook there are TVs and a beautiful bar. If you want to meet with your amigos it is quiet and you don't have to yell like you would expect in a busy restaurant with a bar in it. The... More

My husband and I visit Monty's on a very frequent basis and enjoy our experience each and every time. We were one of Monty's first customers when they opened their doors years ago in their first location. Since they have moved on to a bigger location down the street, we still continue to visit Montys for a quick drink or... More

We've been to Montys on several occasions every time we are truly impressed. From the service, to decor and ambiance, to obviously the food. Service is always helpful, friendly and knowledgable when discussing drink and menu options. The menu changes but always serving delicious dishes in the Spanish Tapas style ("little dishes") Always so much food but but you can't... More

Arrived at 7:30 with party of nine for two birthday celebrations. Waitress was slow and disorganized all night. Three of us at table got dinner entrees at 9:00, the rest of the table had no food within next 10 min. We asked to speak to manager and he did not come over, so we left and we went to Milestones....

Thank you so much for sharing your feelings.I guess all the other great reviews are wrong! Monty's is horrible, I should close the business and sell office furniture or something. It is unfortunate that you allowed yourself to have the worst birthday ever... I do not usually respond to reviewers good or bad, however in this case I will make... More

We visited Montys to celebrate a couple of birthdays. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and the food was wonderful. We chose to let the restaurant decide what we should try . So a nice selection of shareable items were brought out and we really enjoyed each one. The desserts were also very good. Highly recommend this restaurant and... More

The food at Monty`s is excellent and the chef prepares dishes that are rather different from standard fare. The service is excellent and friendly with good advice on the menu and wines to complement the food.
