First time visitors; recommended by a local as a place for a special dinner-it was great! We had the flat iron steak with crab salad topping, the scallops on a bed of Israeli couscous, and the seared tuna steak with an oriental rice. All were delicious; the tuna was wonderful and perfectly prepared. Very good service, pleasant atmosphere (the red... More

The hype around town is usually Montero's, they were really busy the night we went and food was not bad but not the greatest I've ever had either.

I have been to Montero's many times. Last night I tried the buffalo chicken sandwich (mild sauce and blue cheese dressing were options I chose). It was delicious! I also had the veggie of the day which was broccoli and it was cooked perfectly. I shared the dessert special with a friend which was a decadent slice of Milky Way... More

Came out to Montero's for a date night with the hubby, had tried Montero's in the past and had not been impressed. But I'm so glad we decided to try it again!!! I felt like I had to try it again because everyone local has wonderful things to say about the food and the restaurant in general. We had great... More

Stopped in for dinner on Saturday night. Even though they had an event going on we didn't wait more than 10min for a table. Staff was attentive and friendly and eager to meet any requests. Food was delicious, well prepared. You won't go wrong ordering a nightly special.

Enjoyed the salad & app of onions however prime rib was rotten. Owner still made us pay. Shrimp and grits were gross, shrimp was over cooked. Couldn't even finish our main dishes. Won't be coming back.

We were totally delighted by our visit to this jewel. The service was excellent from the moment we were greeted by the kitchen manager at the front door. We were seated at a quiet table and were promptly greeted by our server. The food was excellent in both presentation and taste. My only regret is that they are not closer... More

our family of 16 adults and two children met for supper in a private room at Montero's. The adults had a variety of adult beverages and the children age two and 22 months had milk. every one ordered off the menu. All I heard was good comments on what each person had for their appetizers and supper.
