The Monty’s Experience
‘My experience at Monty's dinner party was phenomenal. Everything from the set-up up of the room, to the perfectly curated menu was incredible. Each dish that Jannell prepared was delicious and fresh. Most of the menu was entirely vegan with only a few adjustments. The creativity in her food really shines through as she blends flavours and inspiration from foods around the globe. I couldn't have been happier with my experience and will most certainly go back.’

‘If you're looking for an intimate dining experience where you're surrounded by love, both in the food and the company you're with, Monty's Dinner Party is something you don't want to miss out on. The night has left an impressionable memory I won't forget for the rest of my life - from how I felt eating food where you can taste the love that went into every piece on the plate, to the pure joy and magic of sharing that experience in such a well-crafted atmosphere. The simplest way I can put it is that my soul felt so happy and satisfied, and that's priceless.’
‘I had the most amazing time at Monty's Dinner Party. As you walk in, you smell all the delicious food, you see the romantic ambiance of the space, and you feel the incredible company of people excitedly waiting for the meal to start. Monty's Dinner Party was an all around perfect dining experience. I cannot wait for the next one! Jannell is a powerhouse and creates meals with flavours that harmonize together so well that you can't even believe it. The whole experience simply blew me away. Thank you so much Jannell!!’
‘After finishing the first course at Monty’s dinner party, I word for word said to my friend “this food is making me emotional”— no joke, this was the best dinner I’ve had in a very long time. Every course was thought out so carefully with flavours that I had no clue tasted so well together. Extremely cute ambience made for a very clsssy and intimate dinner setting. I want to attend every one of these dinners!’
‘My partner and I loved everything about this experience. The food was spectacular, the atmosphere was warm, cozy, and inviting, and Jannell and her partner were the perfect hosts. We talked about it for days after it was done, and can't wait to go again. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for an intimate way to share food with loved ones (or strangers!).’
‘5/5 stars, without a doubt! From the atmosphere to the delicious food, everything about this evening was perfect. The decor was adorable, every plate was instaworthy, and Jannell and Reid were the most welcoming hosts. You could taste how fresh the ingredients were in each dish and see how much love went into the menu. The falafel was (without exaggeration) the best falafel I've ever had–perfectly flavoured and rich. My favourite course was the dessert–the grilled peaches were to die for. This dining experience was such a pleasure, I'd 100% recommend it for a cute outing with friends or a date night.’
