Food is clean and doesn’t smell like oil, feels healtier and fresh But it lacks authentic Indian feel It’s designed for a Scottsdale crowd We come cause we don’t have many other options can’t compare any Indian restaurant in Phx to Cali, Chicago, Atlanta, NY/NJ so we come here We think it’s consistent

Nothing less than excellent. Food, as usual, was spectacular. Nuanced flavors from all four courses. Todd, our waiter, was outstanding as was the rest of the wait staff. Always a wonderful dining experience at Cafe Monarch and this evening was no different.

One of the best 12oz tenderloins I’ve ever had the pleasure to meat!!!! Medium rare with the blue cheese black pepper crust. Everything and everyone was service focused and being there at sunset was the money shot. Well done

Loved this place as a first location on a night out in Phoenix. Solid cocktail choice and very nimble in terms of flexing for zero proof cocktails and old standards.

A chique getaway at Scottsdale Fashion Square. Excellent food and attentive service. Unfortunately, the “outdoor” seating is way too warm in the summer without proper fans and misters.
