Montero's food was ABSOLUTELY amazing. The farm I had my wedding at (Fair Winds Farm) had recommended them to us and we couldn't get enough of them! The food was amazing for both the tasting and wedding rehearsal and reception. Our family was talking about how good the food was all day! We went with the heavy orderves menu because we wanted to get as much food as possible. Only thing that was unexpected was we had SOOOO much food, lol, everyone loved it and ate as much as they could and we had leftovers for the next day or so. =) Everyone was great with helping us out! Well worth it!

Working with Andy and his staff was an extremely pleasant and enjoyable experience. Everyone was absolutely wonderful and the food was amazing. We were initially a bit nervous given the travel time from Elizabeth City to Manteo however Andy provided great suggestions regarding our meal and I could not be happier with how the dinner turned out. On our wedding day, everything went smooth and we received a lot of compliments from our guests. I highly recommend Montero's to anyone getting married in the area!

Andy Montero was highly professional, personal, and provided DELICIOUS food! There was plenty of food, the servers were efficient and not in the way at all, and everything was done professionally and smoothly. We received personalized attention throughout the evening; they even fed and watered our dog! They left my kitchen cleaner than I would, and all the rented dishes were rinsed and put neatly in the containers. I was truly able to relax and enjoy the event. I would highly recommend him!

Wow!! That is how I would describe my experience with Montero's Restaurant! From the beginning, Andy sat down with my husband and I and helped tailor a menu that was perfect for us!! He listened and offered great suggestions in areas where we were unsure of how to proceed.

The reception was absolutely wonderful. From the time our guests arrived until the very last one left, Montero's staff was there, attentive and ready to serve. My guests still comment on how wonderful the service was!! And the food, oh my, was absolutely amazing!! The shrimp and grits were to die for!!! I cannot imagine our day being any more perfect. Montero's is #1 in our book!!!!

Where to begin? For starters, If you are thinking about hiring Montero's to cater ANY event for you, take the time to come to Elizabeth City, and visit the restaurant. If you're from out of town, make an evening of it and stay in one of the nearby hotels. The warm and cozy atmosphere, knowledgeable and professional staff, and creative and tasty cuisine will delight you!

Set up a meeting with Andy Montero, to discuss details of your event. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a wealth of experience in tailoring events to make them the very best. From meal planning, budgeting, setup, and logistics, Andy is sure to cover all of the bases with you! Have fun during the planning process! Grab a couple of cocktails, and relax!

My wife and I got married in Manteo, NC a little over a year ago. From the time the event started, to the time it ended, there was not a single moment of chaos or confusion. The staff is so well trained to handle anything and everything, planned and unplanned, and they go above and beyond to insure your day is amazing!

Having been to other catered events in the past, I can say without a doubt that Montero's is hands down the best in the area! From Elizabeth City, to the OBX and Hampton Roads, Montero's is AWESOME!

Montero's catering was the best! We had wonderful service and the food was above our expectations. We had a small plates menu with all sorts of creative dishes! I especially loved the shrimp and grits that had a delicious spicy sausage.

The staff was very professional and very flexible. I requested a white sangria drink to be served and it was amazing!

I highly recommend them to anyone.

Montero's catered my wedding at the NC Aquarium in Manteo NC. It was AMAZING! They went out of their way to see that our full vision was fulfilled and that our guests had everything they needed. Andy worked with us to create a fun, unique menu for the evening...he was even willing to prepare "our favorites"---things that were not on his standard menu. Andy, Karin and their staff are always willingly to go above and beyond to make your event extra special. The food and service Montero's provides is way above 5 stars.

First of all, Montero's is absolutely amazing!! They are without a doubt the best at what they do!!! When it comes to planning, organizing and executing a wonderful, stress-free event, Montero's should always be your first choice.

With that being said, my wedding was absolutely fabulous because of Montero's! The food was amazing and to this day, I still receive compliments on how tasty everything was. We all know that the taste of the food is not the only thing the bride worries about...not to worry! Montero's has a professional, knowledgable staff that shares Andy and Karin's love of providing the absolute best experience that you could imagine. The staff is courteous and friendly and actually anticipate your needs. We all know how rare that is! There is always going to be some crisis pop up at the worst time (yes, it happened to me) and Andy and his staff took care of everything! They went above and beyond what I was expecting and I am so thankful to them for making my day so special. I truly feel that it would have turned out a lot differently if it weren't for them!

Don't hesitate! Call Andy at Montero's and set up a meeting with him to discuss your special day...you will not be disappointed (unless you choose someone else, of course)! Yes, they are that amazing!! Come in for dinner and see for yourselves the wonderful atmosphere and fantastic staff that is there specifically to cater to your every need and they do it beautifully!
