    Always enjoy Cafe Monte. Had the trout this time, excellent. Only disappointment was the service. The server was busy, but made little effort to attend to our table. Fortunately, others did assist, but even with that, the service was not up to standard. Hopefully this is an aberration for this repeatedly great restaurant.

    I love so many things about this Cafe. On the whole the food and atmosphere is wonderful but please, please work on your Quiche. First it doesn’t have the expected luscious French pastry, second, it has too much cheese and it’s not all Gruyère. It’s so hard to find really good quiche. Please, be that place!

    We have eaten here several times for both brunch and dinner. The food at brunch is particularly good. We had an outstanding server this visit. We noticed, however, their prices have increased astronomically recently. Due to this development, I am not likely to return because while the food is good it is not worth what they are charging.

    Mussels were wonderful, as always. Half chicken was a little dry, but sides were good. shrimp risotto very good. Basil penne pasta was a little heavy on the basil, but that was probably the point! All 4 different desserts were scrumptious. Our server, Paul, was fantastic. He was very attentive and efficient.

    Don’t celebrate your birthday here, especially over lunch. We were sat in the corner by the bathrooms. Zero acknowledgment, not even a happy birthday. **Pretty disappointed as a baker that we weren’t even offered bread** - When the waitress came to take our check she had a basket of French bread in her hand and I asked about it and she said “oh it’s request only”. I asked her how I was supposed to know that and she said “I don’t know.” While I love French food, there are other places in Charlotte I would visit and especially celebrate at.
