What to do about a takeout Christmas Eve dinner? My wife doesn't eat beef so all the assorted Beef Wellington offerings were off the table for us. But Monti's offered a roast duck dinner with all the trimmings for $127 (with tax and tip it...ended up to be about $170). Gotta tell you, it was TERRIFIC! Minestroni soup (one of the best I've had). ADDENDUM... I just checked back to see my December review and found nothing. In as much as I gave a luke warm review in 2018 it's fitting that I share this most recent visit -- if TripAdvisor will publish it. To whomever edits these reviews -- please give this excellent restaurant the attention it deserves.More

Okay I know that I just reviewed Monti's a week ago but I went back and had to review again. This time I had the sirloin burger and I am going to say something that I have never said before for a restaurant burger -...it was perfect! I was very detailed in how I wanted the burger cooked and it came exactly as I had requested. The meat was cooked perfect, the bacon was cooked perfect and both tasted amazing. It also came with blue cheese, arugula and green salsa. Great combo! This time my server was Lauryn who was also perfect. Every dish I've had at Monti's has been incredible.More

Two couples, late evening in Santa Rosa looking for a nice place to get something to eat and have a few drinks. We made reservations, arrived and were seated right away. Service was really good, waitress was always smiling and helpful. We ordered a few...dishes and everything was very good and tasty. Lamb Burger, Oak Roasted Organic 1/2 Chicken, Skillet Roasted Shrimp, Hummus plate. We ordered multiple cocktails and they were also great. The final icing on the cake was a fantastic chocolate cake which was a great ending to the night.More

Although I have lived in Sonoma County for four years I just discovered Monti's (where have I been?). It was my third time having lunch here and this time I brought a friend. It's been wonderful each time. Between the two of us we had:...calamari, sautéed prawns, barrata cheese, and mussels. All of which were five stars (out of five). We finished with the gluten free flourless chocolate cake. I'm a flourless chocolate cake connoisseur and this was one of the best. The drinks were yummy too. My friend had a great lemonade and I had a grapefruit and lavender spritzer. I was also lucky enough to have Abelino as my server each time and he is incredible. We also enjoyed the outside dining area which is helpful during this time of COVID. What a wonderful find. I'll be eating at Monti's frequently.More

As the wind was whipping breezily through the outside of Monti's, space heaters were going and the sun kissed my bare shoulders we were seated in the sunniest corner. Our lunch was incredible! Mom and I had the quiche special. The good news is that...the side salad was to die for with the red cabbage and the white cabbage with a lemon pepper vinaigrette and candied almonds. Serious crunch! The quiche consisted of a special cheese and mushrooms. That was good, but was served to me a bit cold. Our friend Wendy, had a prawn salad. The bread and butter were delightful but the butter melted quickly in the sun. Coffee was great in the French press. All in all, food was good. Service was good. Not a kid friendly place. Reservations are strongly recommended. Nice bar scene. Space heaters on request.More

Met a friend for lunch at Monti’s. The food was fresh and tasty. The Hummus on flatbread was like a hummus pizza with feta and olives. It was very good, except I would have liked more hummus. The cheese plate (I had 3 cheeses) was...ok. The honey was really delicious and I’m not a lover of honey. The service was efficient and very friendly. The restaurant was crowded so we sat outside on the patio under a heater. It was very comfortable. I would recommend this restaurant.More

It was our third time back to Monti's. The staff does not seem happy at all. Comes across as rude. This has been apparent at every visit. Food is wonderful, too bad the staff does not match that. Third time and and won't be back.

My husband and I went there twice. The first time, we were extremely disappointed by the food. But we decided to come back today, try something else on the menu, and trust those who keep on saying that this place is great. After all, it’s...a Starks restaurant, isn’t it ? Unfortunately, we were disappointed again. I took the hanger steak. The meat was good but the sauce totally ruined it. It was served with French fries with rosemary (ok) and Gorgonzola (???!!!). The whole entree was really weird. My husband took the lamb burger and was also disappointed. The pickled vegetables were too sweet and the whole burger meh, even if the meat was good. We will never ever come back. It’s too pricey for what it is. The staff was nice, though... And the terrace charming.More
