    This restaurant has been in business for decades, and never fails to please. The food is wonderful and staff is very pleasant and helpful. The only complaint would be the noise level - inside, when most tables are occupied, the noise makes it difficult to hear table-mates.

    Everything was wonderful! Great wine, superb food, witty waiter and relaxed ambiance. The only issue: I made our reservation for 4 on Open Table and they didn’t have us on their reservation list when we arrived. They were extremely busy, but fortunately they had one table on the patio available. I showed the hostess my Open Table reservation, but she didn’t seem concerned. Not sure where that glitch is, but it would have been a problem if they didn’t have an available table. We had raved about Lomonte’s to our friends, and it was their first time there. But it turned out to be a wonderful evening! This place is a gem!!

    Just did not enjoy anything they cooked. The eggplant parmesan was soggy. The wine list was so-so. The customer is not appreciated here; somebody started running the vacuum before all customers had left. Will not return.

    I was introduced to Lomonte's recently, The Catfish Picante specifically. It is delicious. I tried the pasta with scallops, lemon butter sauce and capers this time. I also lived up to my expectations. I had my 2.5 y/o son with me for lunch and the staff was so friendly and interactive with him. It was great. This is just a great spot so far and everything has been delicious. (I had to sample my girlfriends Chicken Fettuccini to be sure).

    The only issue was that the open table system wouldn't let me schedule my dining at 5:00pm. 5:30 was the first available time. We arrived at 5:00 and got seated immediately.

    I had the chicken parmigiana. It was really good. We also had the spinach dip..... That was amazing. Our waiter was super nice and on point. Brought my sister a piece of cheesecake for her birthday. It's a little on the high price side, so not a good place for a family meal but dates and celebrating its perfect. But my kids love Italian food so I might take them anyways. 😀

    We who live nearby Lomontes are indeed fortunate to have a restaurant of this caliber. The food and service have always been top-notch. The only place where we would mark them down is on house salads, which tend to be less-crisp and soggy. Not a new problem. But on this pass the preparation of our rainbow trout and soft shelled crab entrees was spot on. A little ice cream was all that was required to finish off the meal. During the week things are a bit quieter, so it's great for that leisurely meal.

    Lomonte's is one of my top five favorite Italian restaurants in the Houston/Katy area. I know the food is fresh, they always meet my expectations. The waitstaff are friendly, always smiling, and helpful to answer any questions we may have on any of the dishes. Reservations aren't necessary mid-week but I make them anyway. Reservations are recommended on weekends.

    Service was outstanding! Food was average. It got the job done. As it turns out you go to a restaurant to eat so the food needs to be better than what you can make at home. My lasagna lacked robust flavors that I have come to expect with rich Italian dishes. My dining companions experienced similar meal disappointment. Over cooked chicken parm and a pistachio crusted chicken that surprising lacked pistachios.

    My husband and I were here many years ago for an anniversary and I decided that's where I wanted to celebrate my birthday, this year. It was just the 2 of us, and it was a very nice evening. We made a reservation and our table was set and waiting for us upon arrival, even though we were a bit late, due to the parking challenges in the area. Will, our waiter, was just attentive enough without being at the table too much. The food was great! Veal Parmagiana was great and my husband said the salmon was very good. The portions are large and the prices are good. I would go again!

    We were treated by our son and his wife to a date night while staying with the kids while they vacationed in Sicily. We chose Lamonte's for easy access and near Katy. It turned out to be a real treat. The encrusted Red Snapper was wonderful. The portion was ample. Janice's chicken piccata was tasteful and very well prepared. We visited with the owner for a few minutes.

    My wife and I have loved Pasta LaMonte's or AKA "LaMonte's" since it opened. We moved from Houston in 2006, but returning to look for a home in 2015 during my wife's birthday. She wanted Lamonte's and LaMonte's what she had. Hard to find a place whose service and quality has not changed in almost 30 years. Terrificically Romantic Bar Scene for the younger crowd.

    We had a late reservation and we were seated immediately. The service was wonderful and the menu selection was perfect. The only thing that I missed from our night was the live music, we have been before and I requested the bar seating thinking they would have it. However, we did have an 8:45 reservation. Other than that, I would recommend Lamonte's for a special occasion or just a romantic setting for you and your significant other...😊

    I love the relaxed feel of this place; upscale without being stuffy. I look forward to returning to try more dishes. The Lobster Ravioli was amazing and the Chicken Piccata was the best we've had in Houston. The Eggplant Parmesan has thick cut slices, and tasted delicious. Everyone loved the complimentary cheesecake we received for celebrating a birthday, and one slice was large enough for everyone in our party of six to enjoy a healthy portion. Service was outstanding, and wines were affordable. Parking can be a bit of a challenge.
