One of the better places in Cedar Falls, casual chic, food well prepared, wine was quite nice. The booths were spacious and comfortable, service was attentive.
Brief visit to Cedar Falls in 2011. We LOVED the Spicy Whipped Sweet Potatoes and and Rosemary Cashew Crusted Grouper. Two years later I still remember these potatoes. Totally wish I could make them for Thanksgiving dinner! I've tried to replicate this recipe, but it doesn't taste same. If we ever make it back to Cedar Falls we will definitely... More
The food at Montage was delicious! The menu had food options that were unique variations of the familiar favorites. The service couldn't have been better. We stayed until the place was closing up.
Not sure what was off the evening we were there. I don't mind paying ala carte if tasty but what our party of five ordered was all mediocre at best. One person did enjoy his piñon crusted grouper. Salmon was not the best. Texture of sea bass was watery. Salads were the best course. Chicken skewer not worth the price... More
We're very sorry to hear that your experience did not live up to expectations. Montage takes your opinions seriously, and I have passed along your comments to the chef. Thanks for taking the time to review and we sincerely hope we can earn your business back! More
Everything was very nice, from the service and the food. Very large portions! I had a seasonal dish that was offered, which was pumpkin and scallops with fettuccine !!!!
Fine dining? I don't think so! Hostess was wearing jeans, waitress was unprofessional. We should have left then but decided to stick it out. I ordered grilled salmon and goat cheese risotto. Salmon was under done and tasted fishy, risotto was mushy. My husband had a similarly disappointing experience. We live in Cedar Falls, the last time we dined at... More
This is a ridiculous excuse for an "Upscale" restaurant. I might forgive some of its faults if it were in a smaller, backwoods town, but Cedar Falls has aspirations of being something more, whether that's deserved or not. "Chicken on a Skewer" = Chicken Sate'. Pre-digested papain soaked meats with canned+fresh sauces. Only two types of Scotch? Please.
Respectfully, we disagree. Clearly it wasn't to your taste, but our Chicken Skewers are one of our most popular entrees. Our sauces are all made from scratch on site. We're very proud of our community, and can't think of anywhere we'd rather be located than beautiful, historic downtown Cedar Falls. More
I ate at Montage this past week, and it excelled in impressing me. The menu and wine list were long. I had the salmon and a salad that included goat cheese, which was very obviously fresh.for dessert, I had a lovely sherry. I highly recommend this if you're in the area.
Located in a great spot the evening featured wonderful appetizers and fantastic steaks and the best dessert I've ever eaten (Chocolate Souffle). The atmosphere was inviting and our server, Carrington, was wonderful. It was money well spent. It's worth going just to try the souffle! We will be back.
Montage was the perfect choice for an intimate, celebratory dinner with friends. We had a delicious meal, and loved the private room we had (without asking!). The wine was recommended by the manager, and actually served by him (!) and it was absolutely lovely. The prices are in line with the service and ambiance. This restaurant is a quiet jewel!
