  • 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!

  • How do I even begin to describe how wonderful Montero's was?! From the tasting to the day of the wedding, Montero's was nothing short of amazing. The food was wonderful and memorable (I had several people asking me who we used because they loved the Chicken Ashley so much!). The staff (all of them--from the chefs to the bartender, to the waiting staff, to my contact Andy Montero!!) were such professionals and were so incredibly friendly. I bombarded poor Andy so many times via email and on the phone, and every time he was nothing but a sweetheart and answered every question promptly! I can't wait to go back to Montero's in Elizabeth City for all of our future anniversaries and eat their delicious food!

  • Monteros did an amazing job from start to finish. We initially started working with Mel who was absolutely fantastic. She was very prompt to respond and answered any questions quickly and thoroughly. She left the company before our wedding, but Andy, the owner, hopped in and continued communication without skipping a beat. They arrived at the venue early and helped setup and breakdown everything. They were quick and so helpful with everything. Everyone LOVED the food. All of the food was so delicious and everyone raved about it for days! Overall, we were super pleased with Montero’s and would highly recommend them!!

  • If you are in doubt, BOOK THEM! We got married sept 21st, 19 at the Norfolk Botanical Garden and Montero's was beyond amazing throughout the day and with the food and service. I couldn't thank them enough for all their hard work at our wedding. Our guests are still telling us how delicious the food was and how there was so much of it. They are the nicest people to work with and try very hard to work around your needs. If I ever have a large enough event to cater again I wouldn't doubt in booking them once again.

    You all were just as wonderful to work with...and your guests too! What a pleasure to serve you all and help create memories with your family and friends! Thanks for your trust in our team! ❤️

  • We got to taste over 15 different items for our tasting and everything we tasted was delicious from the appetizers to the late night snacks. Mel was great and so were our servers and of course the chef himself. We can't wait for our wedding day and having the pleasure to work with Montero's again.

    Thank you so much Kalani! I absolutely loved getting to meet you all and spend time getting to know your personalities! I am so excited for your wedding day! Montero's is honored to be your caterer! -Mel

  • Monteros did an amazing job catering our wedding. From the moment we contacted them until the actual event, Mel was so helpful and responsive to all my millions of emails/phone calls. She made sure to understand exactly what we wanted before setting up our tasting. I have Celiac’s disease, so I have to eat gluten free and am very careful about cross contamination. To make sure I didn’t get sick, we decided to make the entire wedding meal gluten free. I was having trouble communicating with other caterers about this. They would either say they thought that was a bad idea, or that they couldn’t handle it. We didn’t want anything extravagant; meat, potatoes, fish, veggies, etc. are all naturally gluten free. When I voiced this concern to Mel, she immediately assured me that would be no problem. They were able to alter several items on their menu to make them gluten free for us. The tasting was incredible, all the food was delicious and we had so much that they even packed up the l... Read more

    Thank You Aleta!! You have me smiling from ear to ear! Montero's takes dietary restrictions and food allergies VERY seriously. Everyone deserves to enjoy delicious food, and we are happy to make the necessary adjustments to keep you full and safe! I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your meal. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and Montero's was honored to share in your day. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and health! -Mel

  • We began our search for a caterer over a year before my daughter's big day. We met first with a few local caterers. Then we met with Mel Noerr, Sales Catering Director for Montero's Restaurant in N.C. Our venue was located in Portsmouth, VA. She made it convenient by meeting us halfway, where we had the chance to sit down and talk. Immediately I liked Mel. She was knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. Just the kind of person I was looking for to make this day run smoothly. So, Monteros won us over. Over the next year, Mel was always available. If I called, she returned my call as if the wedding was the very next weekend. The tasting at Montero's was incredible. Making choices was the most difficult part. That is because we had so much to choose from. Everything was delicious. We had the opportunity to meet Andy, owner of Montero's. Stopped by to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The day finally came last weekend. From the room set up for 150 guests,... Read more

    Mary, It was an absolute honor to work with you and your family! Thank you so much for your kind words. I will absolutely miss hearing from you! If you make it down for dinner in the restaurant, make sure you let me know so I can pop in and say hi. Montero's wishes Meghan & Brent a lifetime of happiness! ~ Mel

  • Montero's Restaurant catered our wedding in November 2018 and everything was wonderful. Our wedding reception was in Hampton, VA so a bit far from Elizabeth City but that was no problem. The food was great and all of our guests had nothing but great things to say about the food. Montero's staff was great to work with. They were very accommodating. I (the bride) am vegan but no other wedding guests were so Montero's plated me a special meal which was wonderful. We stocked the bar ourselves and Montero's was very helpful in determining the amount of alcohol and mixers to purchase based on our guest count - they were very accurate. Montero's was also very responsive. Overall great choice!

  • I live in Virginia Beach, VA, but absolutely worth the drive to NC for the tasting! The food was delicious then and even on our big day our guests continuously complimented the food! We were of course nervous preparing the food for a large group wouldn't be the same quality as our tasting, but that's not the case at all. Same amazing quality and so delicious! We're even planning a date night for dinner again, it's almost a 2 hour drive and totally worth it!

    Thank you so much for your kind words Jennifer! It was such a pleasure to be part of your wedding day festivities. It was a beautiful day and you were a beautiful bride. We sincerely look forward to have you and Andy back down for a date night!

  • While searching for caterers for our wedding at the Norfolk Botanical Garden, my wife and I felt that Andy at Montero's just gave the best service. We went through several other caterers before trying Monetero's, and after a very frustrating process, Montero's stood clearly above the other options. He listened to what we wanted. Really listened. It was refreshing to have a vendor care about what we wanted. Montero's restaurant is located in Elizabeth City, so for the tasting we traveled there. For everything else, Andy came to us where we live in Ghent. At our tasting, Andy struck a nice balance between allowing us to taste the food in private and being present to listen to our thoughts. Since Montero's is out of state, it was necessary for us to provide the alcohol and ABC license, but the license was easy to acquire and we saved a significant amount on buying our drinks wholesale. Andy never tried to steer us from what we wanted, only made suggestions to help improve what we asked fo... Read more

    You all made it so easy and so much fun to work for you! From our first meeting until we got to see you off on your wedding night, both you and Chloe have been flexible, funny and most importantly, down to earth! Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your wedding day and to celebrate with all of your friends and family! ~Andy

  • Our guests RAVED about Monteros. Not only was the food amazing but the service was impeccable. We really enjoyed our wedding day food trial and working with their staff. Come wedding day, they knew exactly what to do and when to do it. Their waitstaff was attentive, fun, and enjoyable to work with. The food was outstanding. I would absolutely recommend this vendor to anyone looking for an incredible caterer.

  • Montero's was SUCH a joy to work with throughout our planning and especially on our big day. The weather was tricky but they were ready to rearrange everything at the drop of a dime if that was what I needed. We received SO many compliments on the food, which I am not surprised on based on how our tasting went. Between cocktail hour and dinner, everything went off without a hitch and our guests were kept full, with drink in hand, and happy from start to finish. A special thank you to Mel for being available for all of my questions leading up to our wedding. THANK YOU!!!!!!

  • We used Montero's for our wedding (the Diamond Package) and they are worth every penny - We really loved working with Mel! Extremely professional, friendly, responsive, and accommodating to our allergy/diet requests. People LOVED the food. We went for tasting and my bridal party were excited to eat it again. The second time did not disappoint either! :) People's favorites: beef tenderloin carving station with horseradish sauce, crabcakes, bacon wrapped scallops and the sweet potato/ham biscuits. I can't say enough good things about this catering company. We hope to visit again to eat at their restaurant!
