    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.

    Cafe Monarch serves the highest quality. Quality service and hospitality meet and go extra miles to make special occasions special. The food is unique and full of flavor. There's a four-course menu catering to both vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. While the smaller bites were innovative and fun, the main courses were a bit more traditional yet still delicious. Each dish is plush-looking and contributes to the experience of every course. The wine list is long, and the cocktails are top-notch. Cafe Monarch is one of the places to go for special events or when you need that fancy dinner.

    Cafe Monarch meets all of your expectations about very fine dining. Traditional, refined and elegant, it’s a wonderful experience. Be prepared for sticker shock if you are a wine enthusiast, as the list is quite expensive, even compared to other AZ restaurants that aren’t shy about their pricing. The food is sublime, and service excellent as one would expect.
