We visited monty's Social for dinner recently. The 19th century building has original stone walls and floorboards - really cool. Friendly and attentive service. Fresh in house bread similar to hard dough, charcuterie with pickled green beans and sweet chilis , brie fritters and frites were excellent! We will return to try the 3 course tasting dinner.

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.

One of the best places in Cambridge to eat by far. Amazing atmosphere. Recently renovated - exposed stone walls and barn wood tables. Tapas menu is fantastic! Something for everyone. Some delicious craft beers along with a palatable cocktail menu. Can offer both an intimate, and group dining experience; along with private bookings. If you haven't already tried it -... More

My husband and I love doing the tasting menus when we visit here on our anniversary. It allows us to eat leisurely and enjoy each other's company without flipping through menus to make a last minute decision because we don't want to make our server come back again. I've only dined here once while not pregnant, but from what I... More

There is Tapas and there is Tapas....this was probably neither. We went eagerly on a Saturday evening fully anticipating something special. The restaurant space itself is exciting and unique but the spread was less than impressive. I could have cracked a jar of olives and rolled some PC proscuitto myself for a similar effect. To top it off, the use... More

The building itself is really beautiful with exposed stone and old charm. We visited on stormy winter Sunday night so the restaurant wasn't overly busy. The service was was really good and the food was delicious. Great place to visit for a date night or group. We will return again and would recommend.

This is an adventure in dining! If you can't decide when you look at menus this is for you! You tell them any dietary concerns and preferences and the chef surprises you with course after course of delicious, freshly prepared, gourmet plates. The ambience of this unique restaurant is historical, quaint, and quite scenic. Have gone twice already for special... More

Monty's is a quaint, quirky little place we don't go to often, but when we do, we always enjoy the unique menu and quiet ambiance and as a result, have referred many friends. Well, after last evening, we won't likely go back until they figure out their "niche" again. We were so disappointed to find they have changed their wonderful... More

This little local joint on Queen st offers delicous tapas style food. Amazing spicy duck wings cauliflower fritters and smoked bacon scallops. Enjoy some great live acoustic music while you dine.
