Not sure what was off the evening we were there. I don't mind paying ala carte if tasty but what our party of five ordered was all mediocre at best. One person did enjoy his piñon crusted grouper. Salmon was not the best. Texture of sea bass was watery. Salads were the best course.
Chicken skewer not worth the price either. We will try some where else next time.

Everything was very nice, from the service and the food. Very large portions! I had a seasonal dish that was offered, which was pumpkin and scallops with fettuccine !!!!

Fine dining? I don't think so! Hostess was wearing jeans, waitress was unprofessional. We should have left then but decided to stick it out. I ordered grilled salmon and goat cheese risotto. Salmon was under done and tasted fishy, risotto was mushy. My husband had a similarly disappointing experience. We live in Cedar Falls, the last time we dined at Montage was approximately 5 years ago. It was bad then but we decided to give them another shot. We will not make that mistake again.

This is a ridiculous excuse for an "Upscale" restaurant. I might forgive some of its faults if it were in a smaller, backwoods town, but Cedar Falls has aspirations of being something more, whether that's deserved or not. "Chicken on a Skewer" = Chicken Sate'. Pre-digested papain soaked meats with canned+fresh sauces. Only two types of Scotch? Please.

Respectfully, we disagree. Clearly it wasn't to your taste, but our Chicken Skewers are one of our most popular entrees. Our sauces are all made from scratch on site. We're very proud of our community, and can't think of anywhere we'd rather be located than beautiful, historic downtown Cedar Falls.

I ate at Montage this past week, and it excelled in impressing me. The menu and wine list were long. I had the salmon and a salad that included goat cheese, which was very obviously fresh.for dessert, I had a lovely sherry. I highly recommend this if you're in the area.
