Stopped in for dinner on Saturday night. Even though they had an event going on we didn't wait more than 10min for a table. Staff was attentive and friendly and eager to meet any requests. Food was delicious, well prepared. You won't go wrong ordering a nightly special.

Enjoyed the salad & app of onions however prime rib was rotten. Owner still made us pay. Shrimp and grits were gross, shrimp was over cooked. Couldn't even finish our main dishes. Won't be coming back.

We were totally delighted by our visit to this jewel. The service was excellent from the moment we were greeted by the kitchen manager at the front door. We were seated at a quiet table and were promptly greeted by our server. The food was excellent in both presentation and taste. My only regret is that they are not closer... More

our family of 16 adults and two children met for supper in a private room at Montero's. The adults had a variety of adult beverages and the children age two and 22 months had milk. every one ordered off the menu. All I heard was good comments on what each person had for their appetizers and supper.

Montero's is a house converted into a restaurant, which is quaint and intimate in some rooms. It also has a bar area, which is more open. The menu is outstanding as well as the food. The service was excellent. Love the bread basket they bring you that has a variety of baked goodies. The prices are very reasonable considering the... More

Great food, wonderful staff, and a nice place to sit back at the bar and chill out waiting for your meal. I had the crab dip for an appetizer and it was very tasty! My blacken salmon was to die for! And the staff was attentive but not so much you couldn't enjoy your meal. I would eat here again... More
