“Disappointed”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

It took an hour and 15 minutes to get out entrees and they were significantly overcooked. I ordered the filet medium and it was well done. My husbands was the same. There were only 5 couples total in restuarant so it can't be blamed on being busy. When we told waiter are steaks were overdone he said he would let the chefs know but never offered to fix the problem. Very disappointing experience. This was our first visit and based on this most likely our last.

“Great FOOD Small bar area, Unique atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Their food is some of the best in Fargo and have very different specials changing on a monthly basis. It's a great place to eat great food even a bit later than upscale restaurants would normally offer.
There is always a great atmosphere in the bar and restaurant areas and the service is generally nice and efficient. Make a reservation on a weekend night, it gets busy surprisingly often.

“Great Romantic Spot Downtown”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I highly recommend checking out Monte's for a special occasion. The drinks and food were great, the staff was very attentive, and the atmosphere is cozy. After living in Fargo for 5+ years and trying just about every restaurant, Monte's is one of my favorites. I would recommend making a reservation too.

“Good food in Fargo”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Fargo has few good restaurants (other than steak houses etc); this is one of the best, the other being the HoDo (Hotel Donaldson).
Had venison there once.

“Another fine lounge in downtown”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

The drinks were well designed, the atmosphere is wonderful, the staff friendly, and the place was a buzzin' with the conversation of the movers and shakers in the Fargo art community. Like stepping into Manhattan.
