We took my friend out to Montero's for a special going away dinner. We wanted to make this a very special occasion for her. I called ahead to see if they could accommodate a party of 10 on a certain night and advised them of the occasion. They went above and beyond my expectations. At the table, they had a... More

Many of the menu items had half orders and full orders. I sent there with family. I ordered a half order and my brother ordered a full order. I would fully recommend a HALF order for one person. The food was great and the martinis even greater.

Great staff here and I believe the best place to get a meal in town. I have tried a wide variety of things on their menu and everything was delicious.

They have full and petite serving sizes of most entrees. They also have a varied desert menu. I went early in the evening on a weekday, but it was filling up fast by the time I left. Obviously a favorite of the locals too.

Was here for dinner tonight January 23, and I had the Flat Iron steak special with a blue cheese sauce, deep fried asparagus, and sauteed sliced brussels sprouts. The steak was cooked perfectly - just as ordered - medium rare. The sauce however was just a bit too strong on the blue cheese. The brussels sprouts would have been better... More
