Our last visit to Montero's was in February. We were eager to try out some of the new menu items. We usually choose to sit in the bar because we enjoy the more casual atmosphere. The service and food was excellent! As owners of The Elizabeth City Bed & Breakfast we are grateful to have such a great restaurant in... More

Everyone in this town raves about Monteros, but I was definitely let down. The atmosphere at the restaurant is great and the staff is very friendly, but the food is such a letdown. It's not that the food is bad, but it does not live up to the high price and is just average quality. It is essentially applebees in... More

Went here for dinner on a business trip, and it was an excellent restaurant. Staff was nice and attentive, the pace was not rushed, and the food excellent. It was a great surprise for this location.

Great place. We enjoyed 3 diff appetizers and all were delicious. You gotta do the shrimp bangers. Not a bad choice on the menu. Even selections for Vegans and those who require gluten free. One of guests fit both categories. Clean, great service, fair prices. Will dine here again.

First time visitors; recommended by a local as a place for a special dinner-it was great! We had the flat iron steak with crab salad topping, the scallops on a bed of Israeli couscous, and the seared tuna steak with an oriental rice. All were delicious; the tuna was wonderful and perfectly prepared. Very good service, pleasant atmosphere (the red... More

The hype around town is usually Montero's, they were really busy the night we went and food was not bad but not the greatest I've ever had either.

I have been to Montero's many times. Last night I tried the buffalo chicken sandwich (mild sauce and blue cheese dressing were options I chose). It was delicious! I also had the veggie of the day which was broccoli and it was cooked perfectly. I shared the dessert special with a friend which was a decadent slice of Milky Way... More
