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

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.

I was looking for a place that would take reservations for a large group on Saturday evening after the Bison game. Monte's was more than accommodating and so gracious. When we arrived we were promptly greeted and seated. The food was amazing and the service was equally well done. This is a great location in downtown and a really neat... More

We had a very nice milkshake martini and mango mojito. Our service was VERY slow. Not even sure why as the restaurant was only 1/2 full when we were there. I had a chicken dish, in which the main flavour of everything was butter and salt. My husband had the seafood soup and felt it was just average and considering... More
