We are always made to feel so welcome when we dine here.The food at Monty's is always good. As well as an extensive tapas list there are 4 or 5 entrees covering beef, fish, pork and lately, rabbit.
We've been eating there for 2 years and I'm glad they finally changed up the menu a bit. They need to change it more frequently to keep the diners coming in more frequently.
The bar area is always packed with regulars. The wine list is very good and the sommelier is very knowledgeable. The cocktail list also has some very interesting items.
If you don't want to order from the menu you can choose from two different 'chef selections' depending on how much food you want to eat. It's fun to sit back and let them bring whatever chef wants to prepare for you.
Monty's has recently moved down the street to a larger building and just in time, too. I have a feeling it could quickly outgrown this new space but I hope they don't move....I love the atmosphere here, the professional service and the outstanding food.
Keep up the great work Brent, Michael, Alex and the rest of the Monty's crew.

My husband and I always enjoy our evening out at Monty's and always take our out of town friends there when they come to visit. The food as delicious and always creative. I love that we can pick a price and let the chef decide our meal for us. This is great for a party table because everyone gets to spend time socializing and we always eagerly anticipate what tasty dish is coming next. The service is always stellar and the staff has always been accommodating when we have dietary requests. We love the staff at Monty's! The location is great as well, comfortable, rustic and elegant all in one!

We tried out the new menu last night and I highly highly recommend the Kale salad...superb! The homemade soups are top notch and I'm lovin' the homemade ice cream....YUM!

Since Monty's arrived in Cambridge it's never been of a question of where to bring friends out for dinner. We missed the trendy options of where to go out with friends who came to visit after we moved from TO but Monty's has now taken care of that. Because they change the menu to keep things fresh and new for their customers it's never the same thing twice except for the exceptional service & atmosphere.

We've been to Monty's numerous times. It is just down the street for us. The food is ALWAYS awesome. Great variety and creativity.

Great wine selection. They change their list regularly and always have a some interesting labels to try.

Let me begin by saying we had been to Monty's in the past, and enjoyed our experience. We wanted to share this new discovery with friends. And....at the end of the night when the bill came we felt embarrassed to have picked this restaurant. The quantity were so small - that we thought they had made a mistake and were bringing the tapas for one couple, and not 2 (as we were). In fact, we had the same quantity of food when we went just the two of us! On top of that the quality of the food was below what anybody would expect. We ate because we were hungry, but one could tell it wasn't made with love!The worst part of the experience was the service. The <girl> who had the miserable task of bringing our food asked a few times if the plate in question was for us...how would we know when we had all ordered the <full experience> and the goal is for them to bring a number of tapas to our table? She didn't take one minute to explain what was in front of us, she only threw the dish on our table and away she went. We honestly feel like we paid for 2 extra meals (experiences) that never came. We will stop recommending this place to family and friends and needless to say, we will never go back.
