We made reservations (10 days in advance) for Brunch. From seating to leaving the experience was one of the best I've had. The food was perfectly prepared and the service was excellent. We were even offered a special desert for our celebration. This is a romantic setting. I did not see any little children nor did care to. No offense to families with kids but this was a nice peaceful experience. This restaurant is highly recommended. By the way, for what we got, the price, including the tip, was very reasonable.

We were due to go to another Resturant that night we chosen Montefiore based on reviews of few friends .
I will say one thing we were not as lucky with the seating, as after we arrived to the same room came hugs group of young people, loud and rude. on top of being smokers . They even asked us if it will be ok to smile inside . No it was not ok We were not that happy .
However we had a great host her name was noy she was top style service oriented lady .
We love the food we love the wine choices.
In my opinion it is very costly Resturant but the vibe of the place is "let's splurge we live only once" we agree! if only the loud people were not next to us .
We will come back but we will not be ok with loud group next to us as it's killed the birthday mood .
The valet parking charges was not needed to be charged . as it was very costly and the place must respect their guests and not charge for parking !

The Good:
Good atmosphere, trendy people
Interesting modern french vietnamese menu
Great deserts given for free because of wait for main course

The not so good:
Food was good but not wow amazing, but at 70-120NIS per main dish I guess this is ok
Very low and uncomfortable tables
Some dished seemed strange for the menu
Waitresses seemed bored explaining the menu
Main courses took way too long to arrive

Overall this is a trendy restaurant with some good dishes.

We are in Tel Aviv and joined some close friends at a great restaurant--Montefiore. The food is lights out, the place is super hip and the wine is fantastic! What more can you say? We had the tuna starter on beet root, the truffle ravioli with feta and the broccolini with mild red peppers and endless deserts. Ortal was our server and recommended the Harel Syrah wine which was lights out. When in Israel, go Israeli wine.

The food was excellent, except for the sorbet at the end: the lime sorbet was extremely sour, even acid, and the mango was too heavy, so that the taste of mango was almost concealed.
The sitting, however, was a bit cramped and the noise of conversations was quite loud. At least no music was forced into the guests' ears.
