Came here for dinner for my dad's birthday. Waited over an hour before we got seated. They were supposed to sing happy birthday to my dad and forgot. Took forever to get the food. and it was nothing to write home about. Will not return.

Montero's is perfect in every way. The food, the atmosphere, the service, the desserts, the staff, the seating, the everything. If you are looking for great food with a great atmosphere this is the place!

We visited Montero's early on a Saturday night with a party of ten (four adults and six children) and had no trouble getting a table and enjoyed a wonderful experience. We called in advance to make a reservation as well as check on their ability to accommodate our daughter's gluten allergy. The hostess answered all of our questions on the... More

Montero's is our number 1 goto restaurant for consistently good food and good service. A little pricey but the quality of the food is worth the little extra $$.

Good atmosphere, with a small town feel. Staff is friendly. I would recommend to stop by for yourself.

My family and I were visiting North Carolina for the first time and were unsure of where to eat. When we looked online at the best places to eat in Elizabeth City, this place ranked as number one, so we decided to give it a go. We were so happy we did! My boyfriend has a severe allergy to dairy,... More

I had the crabcakes with a baked potato and salad because it was to go and I'd walked from my hotel. The crabcakes were well seasoned & tasty but more breaded than I'm used to. The staff was really friendly and my order came up quickly. I had two small issues. The menu was a little outdated online as there... More

My bride and I were here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. We arrived early evening w/o reservations & were sitted within 10 minutes. The hostess came back & decorated our table when we informed her of the occasion. We started the night with a Weeping Radish draft beer for me & a glass of wine for... More

This place is not easy to find; tucked behind towering pines and still looks like an old house with an addition. But once seated, everything changes: Service is excellent, and the food is fabulous. This is one of the finest dining experiences in northeastern North Carolina! A little effort to find, and not a disappointment.
