Monticello is an hour and half from our residence but we've heard really good things about this place. We decided to meet friends of ours here for dinner on a Saturday evening. As they were delayed we had an opportunity to wait in the bar and converse with owner while enjoying cocktails which were mixed well. We managed to talk about their signature dishes and desserts and so we knew what we wanted to try on this maiden voyage. The chef/owner does an amazing job of mixing contrasting flavors. I had the jalapeno crusted pork dinner which was perfectly spicy and accompanied with a delicious pepper tortilla salad and cheddar grits. What a novel way to deliver a cutlet. After hearing about the sticky toffee pudding at the bar, I had to try that for dessert. I've enjoyed this on a Caribbean Island that thought they had it perfected, but this was even better. Don't leave without trying it. Service was professional and courteous, prompt and attentive. The atmosphere is intriguing; the walls are decorated with textile hangings reflecting the fact that this area was once inhabited by American Indians. We liked it and will return.
