I cannot say enough for Cafe Monarch - this was one of the best restaurants that I have been to in a very long time. The food, ambience, and service were excellent in every respect. The individuals that I dined with were also extremely impressed with every aspect of the experience. I have not enjoyed a meal such as this in a very long time. Perfect selections, perfect service - perfect experience.
Great first time experience, for a double birthday! Highly recommend.
Have dined at Monarch Cafe several times. Everything always perfection.
We're out of towners and are in Phoenix once or twice a year. When we are going to be in town, though, we always take advantage of Monarch. It's expensive and you need to be willing to be gastronomically treated which does have its price. All meals are four courses and prices vary on the basis of what the fourth course choice is. We left feeling almost too full (but it was all good). The menu changes regularly, so it's no use telling you how good the Sea Bass was or the opening course of cauliflower soup was, as it might not be there next week. The atmosphere was wonderful and romantic. Our server was Scott and he and his staff were the perfect servers- very attentive and yet, with the exception of placing a plate on the table, almost unnoticeable and out of the way. When my wife left the table, briefly, a server immediately rolled up her napkin and placed it next to her plate. We'll go back in a heart beat when given the chance.
Celebrating with friends who were visiting from California. We have dined at Cafe Monarch many times but it was our friends first time. Everything was perfect. The service, atmosphere, the wine, and then the food was beyond amazing. Cafe Monarch is a hidden jewell in Scotsdale. It is our favoite resturant to enjoy an event or just to celebrate being with friends.
Exceptional food. Great wine recommendations from the som. Our favorite place in town and to bring our out of town visitors.
Before leaving the east coast for vacation time in Arizona, we happened upon the restaurant survey of top 25 restaurants in the US. Scanning the list revealed Cafe Monarch, which we thought a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. The experience exceeded all expectations—the service, the charm, the food—10 stars, please!
From the moment we arrived we were treated like honored guests
Food is some of the best you will have
Cauliflower soup is outstanding
Service was exceptional- friendly and informative
We will make it a point to return when we return to Scottsdale
Just fabulous from the valet to the waiters and especially the food.
Every element of the night was beautifully crafted from the ambiance to the meal to the wine pairing. It was a whimsical and romantic way to spend the evening. The service was beyond fantastic and very professional. This is a perfect spot for fine dining or a special occasion.
Just a perfect romantic setting with wonderful food.
Best food we’ve had in Phoenix hands down. Definitely one of the best overall experiences in Phoenix and on par with many other places we’ve been in the world. A wonderful time!
This is by far one of the best dining experiences we've had. Having been fortunate to dine at unique spots like Eleven Madison (Named best restaurant in 2017), we can honestly say that this is within the top five overall food experiences worth having. The ambiance is amazing to start with, only accentuated by the incredible service of Fernando(assistant to our waiter), Noah, who was outstanding in every way possible. The food was cooked to perfection and presented with such artistry.
You didn't know this was on your bucket list. But you do now!
Cafe Monarch is a one of a kind restaurant with attentive service, excellent food, and beautiful ambiance. It is not inexpensive but well worth it when celebrating a special occasion. Having dinner at Cafe Monarch is an experience you will not forget. We had not eaten there since they moved to their new location which is delightful and the menu options have been expanded which is really nice.
Best in town
Hands down, the best dining experience we've had to date. Came in on January 8th for my fiance's 30th birthday dinner. It was also our first time there and they DID NOT disappoint. From the second we walked in, to the second we left, everything was flawless. Food & service were unparalleled to anything we've experienced. Kyle, our server, made the entire night. He was friendly, personable, funny, knowledgeable as hell and genuinely cared about our experience. CAN'T wait to go back.
Best dining experience we've ever had. Great hospitality from start to finish and the food is creative and just outstanding. We've been there at least 6 times in the last year or two and they never disappoint.
We were celebrating my wife’s birthday.
The service was outstanding and the food magnificent.
A special thank you to Wesam for sharing his knowledge of wines and making our experience special.
Really loved this restaurant lived up to all expectations and then some. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The ambiance was romantic as well as beautiful. Cannot wait to go again!
Amazing attention to detail and so friendly and helpful. A great way to end a wonderful birthday vacation
Fabulous!! Our favorite place to eat hands down. Beautiful atmosphere and exquisite food. The chef even accommodated my need for not having spicy foods. He fixed other sauces and it was wonderful. Has to be the best restaurant in Arizona.
This is our go-to celebration spot. We went for my husband's birthday and the food, as always, was spectacular! Each bite is like a flavor explosion in your mount in a pleasant way. Each dish was outstanding. I love food and have been to tons of great restaurants, but nothing comes even close to Monarch. The food is out of this world!
Service was very attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. Perfect place for a special occasion!
Already have recommended this very fine restaurant to friends. Everything about this evening meal was superb. The sommelier was outstanding, every course of the meal was delicious, the room is beautiful and the service matched all of the above. Cannot recommend this enough--will fly back to Phoenix to experience this again for a special occasion.
Dining at Cafe Monarch is always a culinary experience. The food is outstanding, served in smaller portions that allows you to fully enjoy the superb quality. The sauces are very well balanced, with no one item overpowering. The atmosphere outside is truly enjoyable and very quiet conducive to a good conversation.
Loved every minute of our dinner here. Richard is amazing. Will definitely be back for other special occasions!! Amazing food, amazing service, Amazing ambiance. Definitely worth it!!
The food was amazing as with our past trip to Cafe Monarch. The only thing I would have liked would be for the food to come out a little slower between courses (our last dinner at Cafe monarch was around 3.25 hours and this one got done in 2.5 probably because the restaurant was only half full during the week after New Years and the more spaced out meal left me feeling full but not over stuffed and this trip I felt over stuffed).
One of the best meals and experience all time. Richard and his crew were amazing.
This is our second New Years Eve experience at Cafe Monarch snd half way through the dinner my husband says we have to come back agsin next year! Without a doubt the food is extraordinary, highly creative ingredients, and plated like pieces of art. The service is outstanding, from the front being checked in, the bar tenders, every single server and the sommelier! There are not enough accolades to serve justice on the patio landscaping and romance it offers. We highly recommend Cafe Monarch for any reason special occasion or just because. It’s beyond an experience!
New Year celebration.
New Year’s Eve dinner
This was one of the best New Years Eve Dinner!! WOW!! The six course menu was fantastic!! Everything was fresh and delicious and very creative and excellent prepared ! The service was perfect and very friendly and attended !!
I will start off by saying that the food was fantastic....once we finally got it. I have eaten here multiple times and never had to wait so long for everything like I did this last time 2 nights ago. It was pretty disappointing considering the prices were higher because of the holiday. We will stick to just coming on regular nights and avoid holidays going forward.
Absolutely my favorite dining experience EVER! I’ve had lots of lovely meals, but the staff- atmosphere- food- everything was really fabulous! Can’t recommend highly enough!
A little disappointed in the food. When you spend $500 on a dinner for two, you expect something spectacular. Cafe Monarch is lovely, the service is wonderful and we always feel welcomed and comfortable there.
Always a special treat. They have a passion for fine service. It shows!!
Amazing food and the Solmier is a gem! Impeccable service everywhere!
It will cost you though.
AMAZING. our Somm paired very well, had good stories and made us feel very welcome. Food was perfect
Great service, great menu, delicious food and great ambience.
Strongly recomend it.
