Service was fantastic! We were celebrating our anniversary and they brought us chocolacello at the end on the house. Yummy and spicy! The homemade fettuccine with seafood was amazing. They even accommodated me with a sauce I preferred. Great night!

We dined on outdoors and Kings Highway was noisy but didn't bother us too much. Our servers were very nice and accomodating. We shared a red mussel appetizer and it was excellent - the sauce was exceptional. The house made bread was also delicious. Our main courses were pasta - one with clams, the other a ragu (bolognese) and both were really special. Overall great experience.

Delicious. Simply delicious. Attentive staff. Even while dining al fresco, service was seamless, not hurried and we even got candles as the evening got dark. Had the caesar salad, crisp and cold, with a very good grouper entree. Bread was yummy but would have liked a few more goodies to go with it besides the olive oil... herbs? Olives? Small missed opportunity here. Bonus is you can bring your own and they will promptly chill and open it for you. Tough times during COVID. They did a lovely job. Only drawbacks were people zipping through the dining area on bikes (it is a public street) and some non-mask wearers who sauntered through, mostly things the restaurant couldn't control.

We had dinner the first night of indoor dining. My wife loves their bronzino and was pleased as ever. I ordered an app of prosciutto which was sliced paper thin and each piece topped with pesto. This was accompanied with a piece of ricotta cheese. The combination was excellent ! Main course special was a shellfish combo over pasta in a light red sauce - more of a broth. The plate was topped by langostino which made for a wonderful presentation. Our server Aldo was friendly and on point all evening. We live nearby and have eaten at Mare Monte often. Never had a bad meal and the staff has always been accommodating. Prices may seem a tad high but considering it is BYOB and the location / rent, it is understandable.

Dining out has become a rare treat in this time of COVID, but we’re delighted to have ventured out to enjoy a delicious dinner at Mare Monte. Each of us ordered one of the evening’s specials and both were outstanding (and my capellini with seafood was even tastier the next day after the homemade pasta had absorbed all the yummy flavors). Service too was excellent, and left us looking forward to a return visit.

We have eaten here four times since they have opened. The food is excellent. However, the servers/kitchen have gotten our order correct exactly one time. So, 75% of the time, our order has been wrong. Not small errors either, completely wrong dishes in place of what we ordered.

The service of our waiter and food was awesome, even our 2 year old loved the margarita pizza we ordered for him. My only concern was watching the manager pick and choose who he wanted to seat or turn away. One couple walked up and asked for a table for 2 and he turned them away (about 8 tables were open) I understand they probably had people coming with reservations. But soon after he turned the couple away another couple showed up, with no reservation as well and he happily brought a table out from inside the restaurant to seat them. This happened numerous times. Manger seemed very annoyed with his customers. It was just strange and obviously not how management should run. But the food was fantastic and reasonably priced, would absolutely go back just for that!

Third time here - always delicious. Extensive menu provides many choices. Ask for the duck ravioli special which isn’t on the menu. Service is also consistently excellent. Severs a re prompt and informative. Presently dining is on Kings Highway rich was quite pleasant in the evening.

It’s a nice and cozy place, BYOB, the host was gracious enough to get us a glass of wine. The servers were great, very attentive. They had an event going, so they were busy but I don’t think I’m going back. Food is overpriced, not enough flavors, undercooked pasta (not al dente) had better. I kept ordering different items and running up my bill trying to find a good plate to no avail. You might like it, try it!

Arrived for an 8:15 reservation for two on Saturday night. The main dining room was totally full, the noise deafening. We were seated immediately where we sat for a long time before anyone approached us. My wife and I were yelling to one another but still couldn't understand each other. Eventually a waiter came by but it was impossible to hear him over the noise. He left and we never saw him again. I noticed several people walking down a hallway and went to investigate. Turns out there's another quieter dining room in the back. Now there about 20min but still no menus.

We asked another for a table there and moved. We asked for menus again and got them this time. The food was good. Not especially great. Dinner for two, no liquor, the restaurant is in Haddonfield $178 without the tip or desert but we did order three appetizers to try.

Won't visit again. Poor service, horrendous noise, OK but not great food at prices we would pay for really great food. Place just doesn't meet muster.

We made online reservations, but were unaware the restaurant was participating in a local (Haddonfield only) restaurant week offering a limited prix fixe menu. That was disappointing but of course it was no one's fault. Food was very good; service was professional, but they didn't have enough servers to cover the room - resulting in long wait times and a 2 hour overall mealtime. The price was more than fair, at $35 for three courses.

I plan to return to Mare Monte on a regular service evening when they offer a full menu.

This restaurant just happened to come up on an ad regarding restaurant week, so we thought we would try it and we were blown away. The food and service were both fantastic, and very well priced! We will definitely be back! Mikail was our waiter and he was the best! Very nice, quick, and helpful when it came to the menu. I would definitely recommend!

Wonderful experience at Mare Monte in Haddonfield. We went for restaurant week, at the recommendation of a member of our party who’d been there the week prior. Selection of dishes was wonderful, atmosphere was nice (we reserved and were seated at a corner window at the front of the restaurant), and music not too loud. Food was top flight. Service was attentive and well-timed. We will be back.

I rarely write reviews but felt I must this time because Mare Monte was so good. From apps to end of the meal every dish was terrific, and not run of the mill. We live on the other side of the river (Philly) and have eaten at most of the "go to" Italian places, and this was better than most of them. Lovely decor and terrific service. And BYO to boot!

There are so many really great italian eateries in the area. They are really going to have to step it up a notch to compete. Portions are very small/overpriced. Bread basket for 4 people consisted of 4, four inch square pieces of toast, yes, toast. No salad or soup included with entrees. I would think with the Small portion size of entrees that one or the other would be included at those prices. Dessert was not offered when we turned down coffee. Waiter just walked away and then brought check. They missed out on 4 dessert orders. Luckily, there were many dessert options walking down the shops on Kings Hwy. Overall, we were not impressed. It was a one and done for the 4 of us.

I ordered a starter an octopus salad, it was for $15 but the dish was very small. I don't think it should cost $15.
