We loved this restaurant; but where do I start? COVID: This restaurant follows the social distancing guidelines in a kind, caring and respectful way. The placed tables in a way that makes everyone enjoy; but at the same time respect others space. Food: Every plate...they served us became an instant favorite... where have you heard about Kungfu Tot’s appetizer or Bourbon St. Mahi?, both must amazingly rich and yummy. How about their bread? The choice of dishes keep everyone happy. For instance they have a dish that one of my party tried, the Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese and he finished it and commented that it was done to perfection. Not a remark he makes commonly. I could go on; But just writing this makes my mouth water. This restaurant is an instant favorite and a jewel. Thank you for offering and keeping this rich balance especially needed during this difficult time.More

Met a friend of ours for dinner and wine and Montero's did not disappoint. First, the wine prices are excellent. We had a Napa Valley Cab, the price at the restaurant is the same price as in Total Wine - not the usually 3-400% markup....Service, despite COVID was fine, the meals were all excellent. Scallops cooked right with the proper sear, other entrees were very good. Overall, not many great options in Elizabeth City other than Montero's and a few others - can't go wrong here.More

Montero's is offering take out soup right now. Yesterday's chick pea curry was so good we went back again today. We got the vegan vegetable-just as delicious! Call ahead and they will have a quart waiting for you. It's divine.

This is my second review of Montero's. As I stated in my previous review this is a class act. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Portions are ample. Our server, Shelby, gave outstanding service. It was a joy to have her as our server....This restaurant is always a great place to dine. If you come to Elizabeth City be sure to dine here as you won't be disappointed.More

Great food, nice ambiance, appropriate pricing. The restaurant is a converted house, so noise is rarely an issue since there are many separate rooms. The food is fantastic. My regular favorites are Chicken Ashley or Flat Iron Oscar Steak. Decent wine/cocktail list.

Cocktails were delish (Manhattan and dirty martini). Lemon tart was the perfect ending! After two days on the road this dining experience was so welcome! Thank you to everyone from the hostess to Rachel our server! Will definitely return!

I came back in April and still had great service. Food is always good. I love the atmosphere. I had different desserts this time (creme brulee and buckeye pie) and ordered the Chicken Parmesan. I loved all of my food. I ordered an alcoholic drink...too - Purple Rain. It was made perfectly. I will keep coming back. Our favorite is brunch though! I love breakfast food so that is why!More

I really don't know. It's not really a burger and sandwich kind of place. I had crab cakes and my husband had prime rib and it was delicious.
