I liked the restaurant...simple and clean. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. I loved the Egyptian style Kafta...it was delicious!! My friend had a different dish, can't remember what it was, but it was a variety of rice, meat and veggies on a plate with pita breads. That looked awesome too. Very reasonable prices for lunch. Would definitely... More

This restaurant could use a makeover. There are many many water marks on the ceiling. It looks tired and plain but the food was good. We were served by a pleasant waitress and we were happy with the portion sizes. Two of us had soup. It was steaming hot. I like that, especially on a cold day. The chicken shawarma... More

I've been going to Montfort on the Mountain once a month for about a year now. Service is always friendly and very prompt, the food is always cooked just right and delicious! The salad dressing made in house for the garden salad is amazing and I normally purchase a container to bring home. I recommend eating here to all my... More

We've been here many times, most recently last night. The food is high quality, seasoned well, and the service is usually spot on (with the exception of last night). If going in a group, consider getting the mixed grill for a good sampling of everything.

My husband and I eat here regularly. Some of our favourites: kafta pita burger, homefries, tzatziki with whole wheat pitas, and they serve the absolutely best fattoush salad in the city.

We were looking around for a place on Mother's Day afternoon without realizing that most places around were packed. We ended up at Montfort, and they managed to squeeze a party of 8 in. The food is good, though not great, and mostly Mediterranean, though there are a few Canadian influences. The price is a bit high by comparison as... More

We went to Montfort's at the end of December. We were there for an early dinner around 430pm. The place was not busy at all, a few tables filled with customers. It is a nice looking restaurant, its deceiving how large it is inside. We were seated right away, the service tonight was fine, nothing special and nothing wrong either.... More

My sister, brother-in-law and I went for lunch on August 14,2015 at this delightful restaurant. With Middle Eastern music playing gently in the background, our server answered each of our questions and was attentive without hovering. The food was fresh and delightful. The portion size was great. The pitas we had were very full of meat, and the salads were... More
