Valentine's Supper with my wife.

I will start this off by saying that we went her last year for Valentine's Day and we really enjoyed the food, but we weren't very happy with the wait. We had reserved a 7:30 slot and it was almost 9:00 before we sat down and it was about 10:15 before we got our food. If I were to rate... read more

We have stopped here several times during recent weeks and find that the food and service are consistently excellent. Monte is a very warm and accommodating master chef, who tries to make a personal visit to every table. Try the seafood pasta for a real New Orleans style treat.

My wife and I went here for dinner last night. Hardly anyone there at 7:45 pm, which should've been our first clue. We were seated promptly, handed menus, had our drink order taken and then sat for 5 minutes. Then another server takes our drink order all over again. Turns out they were out of the wine we wanted, so... More

Monday Agho ALWAYS delivers great food!! If it's a holiday it may take a little longer as it is a small family organization but it is totally worth the wait!! His specialty is Cajun-French and he nails it!! You must try it!!

Not like New Orleans Seafood! DOESN'T LIKE IT EDIT DINER FROM JACKSON • Papanmama • 1 Review I am home grown New Orleans! We were so excited when we heard Monte's was moving to Byram and so very disappointed when we ate there 10/11/2014. We were looking forward to good Louisiana seafood and that New Orleans's bread pudding they advertise.We... More

First thing this restaurant has moved to Byram MS. The waitress input a seafood crepe as a chicken crepe so order came out wrong. She didn't realize there were two crepes on menu. Also input a small plate stuffed shrimp as a regular stuffed shrimp. The crab cake is not a Maryland style and is gummy. I read the other... More

Special occasions are not their strong suit. Let me start by saying that our waitress was a pleasure and that was the only thing pleasurable about this experience. We made reservations for Mother's Day at 12:30 pm for a party of 9. We showed up with 8 and we walked thru the door at 12:25 pm and the place was... More

We ended up at Monte's after we stopped for the night in Byram, MS. It is right off I-55 and is probably as good as it gets in this area, but has a limited menu, average food preparation and service, and seems overpriced for the location and quality. Chef Monte has a nice background story and visits table side, but... More

Moved to Byram MS close, go south I55 to Byram exit on frontage road. Wonderful seafood crabmeat pasta. ANGEL hair pasta with alfredo sause loved by daughter on child menu. BREAD PUDDING IS BETTER THAN NEW ORLEANS WE HAVE HAD. Highly recommend. HAVE BEEN EATING HIS RESTAURANTS SINCE THE 1980's
