My girlfriend and I are new to the area and we went to Himalayas for our anniversary, our first visit. Bottom line: the place is excellent. Particularly the food and the service is outstanding. Christian, our waiter, is not only a very knowledgeable food connoisseur, but is also a total gentleman and an excellent host. After he learned our tastes, he directed us to 2 excellent dinner choices, while giving his honest cautionary advice against a couple other we had our minds on (simply due to our culinary tastes, NOT due to the quality of the dish). The food was very delicious, and I even got my fill to eat (which does not happen often for me at higher class restaurants). Frankly, the food was likely worth more than we were charged. We will be eating here again soon! More

This was our first visit to Monarch. The restaurant is beautiful. Very “New York” feel. The food was excellent. We started with the trout and potato and the blue cheese and kale. Both were wonderful. My husband then had the Caesar salad with a very unique presentation. I had the soup de jour which was cauliflower soup with white truffle. Very good. For the entree 3 of us had the short rib meat loaf. Very rich and tasty. One of us had the pasta dish which he shared a taste of, and that was excellent as well. No complaints at all about the food. Was a little pricey which was to be expected with the quality and atmosphere. The sommelier assisted in picking out a great wine that paired nicely with our meals. Two things that irritated all of us: They charged us $5.00 for a “bun” that we split between 4 people. (BTW, the menu said it was $4.00). It was very good, but ridiculous to charge for that. The second thing, when we sat down, our waiter offered us sparkling or still water. He never offered tap water. We chose still and were charged $8.00 per bottle. So....we paid $21 for bread and water! We are accustomed to fine dining in New York, Boston and Dallas and have never experienced this. It actually left a bad taste in our mouth after an evening of wonderful food. That all being said, we will return for the excellent food. More

Ate here for a small business holiday party. The service was fantastic and the food was different and delicious. Our group shared rounds of cocktails, appetizers, and entrees, which were all prepared quickly and we appreciated that many of them were based on locally sourced ingredients. We all loved the decor and vibe of the restaurant- it felt very upscale, but trendy at the same time. Would recommend this restaurant inside the Marriott to others- especially for special occasions More

Really a great setup when you are going to an event at the Holland. Good food and very convenient. Arrive early, no problem with parking, good food and a relaxing transition to your performance. We've done this twice and I expect it will become a regular when we attend events at the Performing Arts Center. More
