  • Jerel JBest Grasshopper ever! Heart this place!

    55555 by Jerel J


  • Cole K.The Roasted Sirloin Au Jus is a wonderful pile of meat atop an island of pumpernickel bread, all floating in a sea of savory gravy.

    55555 by Cole K.


  • Shawn G.You know what they say, "atmosphere! atmosphere! atmosphere!" The Monte Carlo has plenty of that amazingness. Make sure to get a classic cocktail while you sit at the bar to complete the experience.

  • Robert SThe chicken & calamari is phenomenal....... πŸ“πŸ™

  • Gordon W.Good vibe, strong drinks and throw back bartenders. In the summer the patio is the spot.

  • City Pages Street TeamSandwiches, a ruling Caesar salad, and a laid-back Sunday brunch make Monte Carlo a convivial place to be.

  • Jason HartfieldOMG The wings here will change your life!

  • Todd StabergBrunch on the patio, the bloodies are still great after 20 years!

    55555 by Todd Staberg


  • DerekThe Monte Carlo wings (Beijing Style) are the bomb dot com. Hot and crispy with a salty, sweet, and spicy dry rub on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. Get a basket to share. No regrets.

  • Nolan V.Shortly after killing his first victim. Andrew Cunanan stopped in for a lite dinner.

  • EaterThe North Loop may be so hot right now, but the Monte Carlo has been holding it down since 1906. Sit at the bar with a martini and the famous wings, or get the traditional steak.[Eater 38 Member]

  • Jeffrey O.22 person party in a private room and they couldn't split the bill? Seriously?! People have kids and leave at different times. Terrible management policy.

  • Mechelle B.We had a party of twenty two and had to split our own bill of almost 1k. To say the least we will not be returning here for any event.

  • jeff b.Great drinks and the wings app is very tasty. Great service from Kristine and others!

  • Jocelyn W.Loved dinner on the patio. Nice atmosphere. Cocktails are $12 but you get two drinks worth.

    55555 by Jocelyn W.


  • Brennan S.Cocktails are served in a pint glass with a cocktail glass. One drink is basically a double.

    33333 by Brennan S.


  • R.G. L.Liver and onions are out of this world

    55555 by R.G. L.


  • Troy C.Best wings in Minneapolis

    55555 by Troy C.


  • City Pages Street TeamVoted top ten chicken wings! Each bit of the wing brings a different spice flavor. Not entirely savory, not exactly sweet, it's an entirely unidentifiable, familiar flavor.

    33333 by City Pages Street Team


  • City Pages Street TeamVoted top 10 Martinis! Now that you're all grown up and graduated from Scooby Snacks and Colorado Bulldogs, the bartenders at the Monte Carlo are ready to pour you what you've been missing.

  • Drew G.The reviews are true; the Monte Carlo wings are that good. Enjoy the patio before a Twin's game. It's an easy walk to Target Field.

    55555 by Drew G.

    55555 by Jake S.

    55555 by Eric K.
