Like the reviewer below, we had the Groupon, too. I bought the voucher because the restaurant stated that they had gluten free options. I should have known better. Beginning five days before my reservation, I left messages to be sure I would have options available to me. No one ever returned my calls. When the hostess called me the day before to confirm my reservation, she checked with the chef and assured me there would be options for all three courses. Yeah, right.
So the evening began. My pinot grigio had no taste, as it watered down mediocre wine. Blech. I sent it back. My smoked salmon appetizer came straight from Trader Joe's. Actually TJ's would have been tastier. We got hit with the upcharge for the rockfish, which I thought was tacky. But honestly, while the rockfish was cooked correctly, the sauce was boring. No taste what so ever, with watery tomatoes and capers. Ditto for the dishes my husband ordered: pasta carbonara for his appetizer, the short ribs for his main course. The short ribs were swimming in a pool of grease. It might be fine at a Greek diner, but not so great at an "upscale" French restaurant.
And despite the fact that I had inquired about gluten free options, and was told that the sorbet dessert would be available to me, they didn't have any to offer.
I have to say, I couldn't wait to get out of this place. The tables are jammed packed together. It's loud. And despite our inattentive waiter, we were hit with a 18% gratuity charge. I'm regretting that I opted to leave the full amount because his service wasn't worth it. He isn't even the one who gave us our check. The hostess did; hopefully she'll get some of this tip since she deserved it more than he did.
Save your money (even if it's a Groupon) and go somewhere else. Unless you're used to hospital cuisine, don't put Brasserie Monte Carlo on your "wanna try" list.
