Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

This was the third time my husband and I have dined here while in Monteray. It was no disappointment. The scallops were excellent and staff attentive without being intrusive. We will be back.

“Sunday evenings hold a special treat at Montrio Bistro!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely dinner hear with my eldest daughter one Sunday evening while making a four night tour down Highway 1. Dinner was excellent, the atmosphere a delightful respite from the fog-filled streets and the great surprise was most bottles of wine were 50% off! Had the consistently excellent 2008 Alexander Valley Silver Oak Cab for less than it can be had retail. Lovely way to compliment to our first night on the road.

“Culinary Delight!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I had a hard time choosing from the many enticing selections on the menu, so we decided to split dishes so we could try several. We started with the bacon wrapped prawns, then had the roasted beet caprese, lamb chops with pistachio-mint pesto, and spiced French beans with cumin and cocoanut. I can't imagine we could have made any better choices. Everything was absolutely perfect, and we savored every bite. It's wonderful to find a menu with fresh new dishes presented beautifully. We highly recommend Montrio Bistro.

“A delicious experience”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

There is no shotrage of good restaurants in Monterey, but this one should be included in your list of the best. While the service was a bit rushed, the food was outstanding. The calamari was done perfectly, and the beef short ribs were a thing of beauty that made the use of a knife unecessary. The atmosphere could best be described as "elegant cannery" in a refurbished building exposed to the brick walls. All in all, a wonderful experience.
