Contemporary American | Fort Greene, Brooklyn

The hostess/waitress Katherine is an absolute asset to this establishment!!!!!!!!! She saved the day by providing excellent service. She was courteous, professional as well as affable. Pancakes were surprisingly thin, but absolutely delicious. Coffee and hot cider was served in a mug❤️❤️The quiche was flavorful. The mustard dressing on the salad was yummy. This foodie was not disappointed with my first visit to this restaurant. Kudos!!! More

Italian | Park Slope, Brooklyn

I have been enjoying Monte's excellent Brooklyn Italian dinners for the past 50 years, through several owners and redecorations. My favorite meal, among many, has been their veal parmigiana with a small salad side dish and a glass of Chianti or Montepulciano. Can you imagine my chagrin when I placed this same order on Friday evening January 18, 2019 and was told, "Sorry, no substitutions, we serve veal parmigiana only with a side of pasta?" What restaurant in New York City, or anyplace, would refuse this modest request from a patron? But the young lady manager that night rigidly refused. Had it not been for my lifelong love affair with the place, my wife and I would have walked out, never to return. My low level rating for "service" is attributable to this rare sorry experience.
