It appears to be a restaurant with something for everyone. If a person were unable to find something on the menu they liked it would be a quite amazing. I had the Marty and Larry burger and that was very good. The fries included with the burger were outstanding, too. When I'm Roanoke again I'll be stopping in here again,... More

I came here on a Monday evening a few weeks ago. I'll admit the food was good, but it wasn't fabulous, not for the prices they were asking. The staff was friendly, and for a Monday evening, they were busy. I was informed by my dinner companions that Montano's is a local favorite, and that was evident in the fact... More

Had not been to this restaurant in quite awhile and we were looking forward to a delightful dining experience. As usual there was quite a lively crowd of diners and people picking up items to go so it was quite busy for the staff. However, we were dismayed with the way our orders were done. One person ordered the mussels... More

I rarely give a five to a restaurant but this one merits it. Lovely, warm, bright ambiance. A cute but not too cute Tiki bar. Extensive beer list and good wine list. Fair prices and portions. Fresh, local food. Shrimp bisque was exquisite. Shrimp in wine sauce was delicious also. My mussels scampi were spicy, garlicky and similarly superb. The... More

For over 40 years I have been enjoying the food at Montano's. there are a few places that are so consistently good and Montano's is certainly one of them. Whether it's for a fairly late night appetizer or a full dinner you can't go wrong, it is always a special treat. Highly recommend it.

I usually don't like French onion soup out, b/c it's too salty, but this was rich and delicious. I also had the special of salmon, scallops, peas and hearts of palm in cream sauce, to die for! I wish I'd left for desserts b/c they looked divine!

A fixture in Roanoke where you can find many Italian & Brazilian meals well prepared and served by a competent, long time wait staff. The food is competent but not inspired. If you want Brazilian go to Carlos's Brazilian... Even their Italian food I like a bit better.

Made reservations, had to wait a little but that was fine. The food was absolutely delicious. I had the crab cakes. Best crab cake I've had. Wonderful atmosphere and great service. Will definitely return

Good food and service. We arrived during the dinner rush - they were quite busy due to local High School homecoming but we were seated within 10 minutes. Steak was excellent. Would dine here again if in the area.
