Overpriced and loud

We found the prices here extravagant for the food, which is not terribly complicated. Two of my colleagues ordered the happy hour special Mai Tai with extra rum, but none of us could taste any rum in the drink, never mind an extra shot. Even outdoors the recorded and DJ music was loud enough to be... read more

Went here for dinner with friends. After we got passed trying to get any of the many employees who went by or just stood there without doing anything while they had a group of 8 waiting to be seated and served, we finally got a good waiter who cared about doing his job. After that, everything was good. We brought... More

Waitress was friendly and efficient. Food was extremely poor. 5 of us in the party and we would have been much better of at a chicken shack. Nothing was fresh and had no taste like it was all fried together in the same grease. Extremely over priced for the quality of food.

This was my 2nd trip to Monty's. The first was 4 years ago, when I had a friend attending the University of Miami. That first happy hour visit to Monty's exceeded expectations, so this time around, I decided to bring my fiance' along. We arrived in time for the happy hour on Friday night....can't beat it. $1 oysters, clams, and... More

Went there for lunch with colleagues. The service is friendly and the area nice, by the water. All the things we ordered came in very large portion... consider sharing, we left 1/2 the food behind...

Went for the first time on a Monday night. Even at 8 in the evening with few tables occupied, the service was terrible. Watch your bill! I had 18% gratuity automatically added. The service didn't even deserve 18%. Be careful of the New England Clam Chowder! It's the one thing I ate and my husband did not. I, unfortunately, got... More

My girlfriend loves dining waterside and when I saw Marty's on the internet I wasn't sure about it. Boy was I wrong; this place is nice and to dine while you drool over the yachts isn't bad either. Food was good, ambiance was better.

Fair food for top prices. Happy hours were good but the crowd is too yuppy for me. Service is slow and not too accurate- be ready to inform your server you didn't order this. And every surface is sticky.

This was my second time visiting coconut grove, and my second trip to montys. I ended up having the same bartender both times, and he was a huge reason the experience was positive both times (the smaller bar near the entrance). Happy hour is a great deal and the raw bar is really fun. I almost chipped a tooth on... More
