Monty's is all about the meats, good meats, well prepared meats! But we had a vegetarian in our party of six. So almost no choices on the menu for her. What saved the day was obtaining the kids menu and ordering some pasta for our veggie eating friend. Salad was another choice. My mistake, I should have realized a steakhouse might not have many vegetarian offerings! Several fish dishes offered and shrimp dish. Nice older woman who appeared to be owner or upper management came to table several times to make sure everything was going well. Water and drink glasses filled promptly. Nice birthday dessert giving to a birthday girl in the party, very nice presentation on a plate and gratis.

The bill with a bottle of wine for the 6 of us came to $216.24 (pre-tip), not bad for an upscale place. Plenty of free parking in shopping center parking lot, restaurant located in small shopping center with other restaurants and stores.

We went to Monty's last night for dinner, and had the Atlantic Salmon steaks. OMG! A 10 oz. salmon steak, cooked perfectly. Both the asparagus and green beans were cooked with tomatoes, onions and garlic - very nicely done, and the sauce on the salmon was delicious! All of the food was served VERY hot, which was a nice surprise, despite having to let it cool for a few minutes before eating. Very nice wine, good waiter and classy interior and design. Looking forward to a repeat visit!

My husband found this little gem on open table and it was only 15 min from our home in Lorton VA. I had never heard of it before; it is tucked away in a strip mall and I must have passed it a dozen times. The wine list is a bit small but they have some great choices; even our Stags Leap. We shared the shrimp cocktail for two and the Cesar salad, both fantastic. And I appreciated the shrimp being served in an ice dish. For dinner we had the porterhouse for two. While fantastic, I talked my husband into sharing with me and he really wants to go back and try the rib-eye. Our server's name was Pleasure and he was funny, warm and attentive. We will most certainly return.

We’ve visited Monty’s many times with friends and family and all of us have enjoyed reliably delicious dinners and good service. Highly recommend, a treasure in West Springfield.

After stopping our visits here because of slow service, harried waiters, and declining food quality, we decided to try it again on Valentine's Day and made a reservation for 7 PM.
We were seated with no warm greeting and only after the hostess and owner took a few looks into the computer. Unfortunately, this was another visit in which the service was so slow and our waiter so harried that it was difficult to have an enjoyable evening out. The wait to order, 15 minutes, the wait for our first course, 25 minutes after ordering, and the wait between the main and dessert courses stretched beyond what was an enjoyable time lapse.
Because our waiter remembered us, he felt comfortable complaining about the kitchen ("It's a disaster in there") and the way things were going (Heaving sighing: " this is going to be a long evening.")
We have tried to be patient with the adjustments that have had to be made since one partner has taken on full responsibility after her brother's illness, but it's been several years, and at this point, the owner and management should have worked out kinks so that dining is a relaxed, positive experience.
I was surprised to see waitstaff responsible for clearing and setting tables in sweatshirts, an odd juxtaposition in a setting with an upscale vibe and prices..
We feel that the steaks and side dishes are good; my surf and turf was very good! However, the food wasn't the quality I remember when the restaurant first opened, and coupled with the slow service and frazzled waitstaff, Monty's is, unfortunately, an expensive neighborhood restaurant that has too many downsides to merit continued patronage.
