Stopped in for a quick bite with extended family, group of 9. We were seated quickly and very well taken care of during our visit. Very friendly and efficient staff. Food was hot and tasty...really enjoyed their spinach and artichoke dip.

I was originally going to go to the mandarin on valentine's day but their wait was to long and their service seemed unusually slow so we went over to montanas. They met our expectantions and more even though they also seemed busy. We will definitely recommend and return.
