Lunch was awesome

Food was spectacular and beautifully presented. The Local Fargo beer was refreshing and the German chocolate cake martini was delicious. We also had an awesome service

Monte's was our place to go once-upon-a-time back in the days when Monte greeted you at the door and the place was hoppin'. Nowdays it's not nearly as busy as it use to be but we still like going there for the drinks and the atmosphere - they still make the best Martinis around. This time we decided to sit... More

I recently visited with my husband and a friend for a round (or two!) of martinis after hearing positive reviews - we were definitely pleased with our drinks and will be back! We decided to sit outside on the patio/garden, which was peaceful despite being backed to an alley. Our server was friendly and efficient, which added to the atmosphere.... More

The food was fine. But the food isn't the whole experience. The acoustics in this restaurant are dreadful. The way the sound bounces around this place, we could hear the people across the room more easily than the people across the table. Second, despite being only half full the night we were there, they seemed to be under-staffed. They seemed... More

I chose this restaurant based on a recommendation from the reception desk at the Radisson in Fargo which is only 2 blocks away ! Very quaint and warm décor with excellent service. I ordered the Nicoise salad and the local Walleye encrusted in coconut both excellent ! Very good wine selection as well. I would highly recommend trying out Monte's... More

Remember when traveling outside of a major metropolitan area meant you were going to have "good home-cooking" but nothing fabulous? Fabulous, interesting food can be found in Fargo at Monte's and it would stand up to the east or west coast food snobs without any problem. The food is delicious (filet mignon was a highlight) and the vegetables were delicious.

The food here was very good. We ordered the spicy red curry meatballs for an appetizer and they were excellent. The sauce was rich and creamy and beautifully presented. We each had a martini and they were very good as well. My main course was the grilled filet and I must say it was more DELICIOUS than I could have... More

If you want to impress someone, you won't be disappointed at Monte's. Not the biggest place in town, but the service is great and so is the food. They do a great job on their steaks and I have to recomend the filet mignon. The lobster and filet mignon sandwich at noon hits the spot.

My wife also ordered the the warm beet salad which she loved. I ordered the filet mignon lobster sandwhich...it literally melted in... More
