On a visit to Fargo, my travel companion and I decided to check out Monte's for dinner. Surprisingly, after driving up and down Broadway twice earlier in the day, we didn't even notice the restaurant. Anyway, we went for dinner and it was definitely pricey, the decor was odd and dark, and the food was average and didn't really reflect... More

Our group of 9 staff members nearly took over this quaint downtown hot-spot for lunch during Fargo-Moorhead's first ever Restaurant Week. The service is outstanding and the food unbeatable! Come with a hearty appetite, the portions are sure to impress. Although it was understandable with a table of our size, it did take longer than expected to be served our... More

The Easter brunch buffet at Monte's was distinctive and delicious. The chef has put an interesting twist on many of my buffet favorites. But don't worry, it wasn't too different! My teenagers even liked it! Dan was our server and was wonderful. Outstanding service and great food, comparable in price to other buffets in Fargo where it seems to be... More

My book club chose Montes for our April meeting and we are so glad we did! The Owner set up an all inclusive appetizer and drink menu for our group. Our Waiter, Dan was amazing and very attentive to a crew of cackling ladies. We had a great time and the atmosphere, drinks and food could not have been better.... More

The staff were fantastic. We arrived a bit late due to train - but they were ready to serve us upon arrival. We had a window seat to the Zombie Bar Hop - what a hoot. I don't recall the 2 staff's names who served us - they need special recognition! The person who check us in also visited/connected with... More

Just ate at Monte's last week. It had been awhile since I had eaten there due to not feeling like I was getting what I was paying for. The food at this last visit was superb.The service was a little sketchy, however. I was the first of our party to arrive, was seated immediately, but left with no drink or... More

Dinner can get expensive...we had an appetizer and two entrees ($85). Food was what to expect from the price. Very delicious and just the right amount for a fancy restaurant. 4 stars only because the meal took almost 2 hours. Appetizer took 45 minutes, then they build up the anticipation for the main course for another 45 minutes. There is... More

Monte's is a wonderful restaurant. From location to decor to service, and especially for the menu, I highly recommend this place. I was there for lunch last time, and even a "hamburger" is nothing like what you would get at another place. The food is excellent and interesting. Be sure to try their desserts also.

I had the opportunity to enjoy an evening meal at monte's which included a couple of phenomenal appetizers. The spicy red curry meatballs (my new favorite appetizer) and shrimp skewers that we're different than anything I'd ever had and I would highly recommend. The entree I was able to enjoy was also to die for! The service was exceptional and... More
