“Best in Cedar Valley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Arguably the best full-service restaurant and bar in the Cedar Falls and Waterloo area. Excellent service. I've also found the food to be first rate, whether you get fish, chicken, or beef dishes. The potato sides are particularly good ... I especially like the sweet potatoes, although they may be a bit spicy for some folks. Desserts are elegant, although on this particular visit I could not get cream brulee. One of the best selections of wine around. Monday's offer half-price bottles of wine. The fireplace on the second level makes for a cozy retreat on cold Iowa days.

“Variety is the Spice of Life”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Good atmosphere and a varied menu (the name Montage fits). If visiting in the winter ask for a table away from the front door as it gets cold. Service was ok. I would give it another try.

“Favorite Local Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

The Montage is upscale dining without the stuffy atmosphere. The menu is extensive and creative. I love the hoisin glazed tuna. I've tried many items on the menu and have enjoyed them all. The chef offers seasonal specials and the menu gets updated periodically. There is a bar you can sit at on the main level or a comfy lounge upstairs to enjoy a cocktail. The Montage offers a full service bar and extensive wine list.
They've recently added an outdoor rooftop area that's wonderful on a nice evening.
If you are looking for somewhere for a special evening choose The Montage!

“Memorable Spicy Whipped Sweet Potatoes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Brief visit to Cedar Falls in 2011. We LOVED the Spicy Whipped Sweet Potatoes and and Rosemary Cashew Crusted Grouper. Two years later I still remember these potatoes. Totally wish I could make them for Thanksgiving dinner! I've tried to replicate this recipe, but it doesn't taste same. If we ever make it back to Cedar Falls we will definitely go again! Spicy sweet potatoes are a must try!
