Absolutely fantastic dining experience. This was a belated Valentines Day celebration for my husband and I and the staff, the service, the ambiance couldn’t be matched. The food was the best that we have had in Arizona. If you’re looking for a lushious five star meal in an atmosphere of pure romance, this is it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cafe Monarch, where we went for a late Valentines' dinner. The food was incredible, the place was beautiful, and the service was outstanding! We look forward to going again in the future.
There are few restaurants that compare to Cafe Monarch. It is the perfect setting for a perfect evening with perfect service and perfect food and drink. It just doesn't get any better. A perfect performance every single time I have been there. I love it.
Fantastic service and food. Everything we ate was excellent. The ambiance was simply romantic. The whole experience was simply exotic. Highly recommend for a date night, anniversary or special dining. Worth it in every way.
Service was some of the best we have had ANYWHERE. The patio was a near perfect experience. The only downside was a table of 4 next to us who had an obnoxious guy wanting the entire patio to know how much he knew about wine. Minus that, it was a great experience. Not sure what Cafe Monarch could’ve done about that. It’s a bit pricey but you know that going in and the experience is worth it. We’ve celebrated Valentine’s Day dinners at Kai and Orange Sky. Wife preferred it over Orange Sky. On par with Kai.
Outstanding. The food was excellent and the service was among the best we have experienced anywhere in a long time. Jamar was great. It was my mother in laws 80th birthday and he provided the proper balance of professionalism and personal attention. Kudos and highest marks to Cafe Monarch!
We celebrated an anniversary here. Service was excellent, the food was divine. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic dinner experience.
Excellent dining experience. Exquisite food. Great decor. Clean. Friendly/knowledgeable sommelier. Can’t wait to return!
Excellent dining experience at this venue. Definitely a special occasion restaurant that will not disappoint! A fine dining experience as good as any other in the valley.
Absolutely fabulous. From valet to bartender when exiting! You feel like the only table in the restaurant! Richard was wonderful. Food was amazing! Fun people watching too.
Wonderful experience in every way.
Four course culinary excellence. Great wine, delicious dessert. Highly recommended!
If you want a restaurant with a wonderful, romantic, upscale atmosphere where you can dress up and go out for an exquisite dinner with someone special - then this is the place. My wife's and my new favorite restaurant in the Valley to go to on special occasions, or even "just because." We're both vegetarians, and its nice to find a restaurant of this caliber that also has a vegetarian-specific menu, not just modifications of meat-centric dishes. It tells us that the chef truly "gets it" when it comes to vegetarian dining. I'm sure that the non-vegetarian menu is just as good. Great atmosphere, service, wine list, and menu - Cafe Monarch has it all!
Extremely overpriced for the value of the meal. The ombiance was great, but the price of food was ridiculous. I certainly understand it was Valentines Day, but quite sure if my expectations were not met.
In car talk this place is a Bently. In painting it's a da Vinci. In sculpture it's a Michelangelo. In cities it's a Paris. In wine it's a Domaine - Gran Cru. In women it's my Wife. In restaurants, well, you get the idea.
Impeccable meal, excellent service. Classic food done really well. Perfect for a special occasion.
Hands down, without question the best restaurant in the valley.
Had a wonderful Valentines Day dinner with my girlfriend! The food was so good that we were at a loss for words-we just kept saying “Wow!” and nodding at each other with each new course! We were never at a loss for assistance, there were plenty of servers including our own waiter, Richard who was very friendly and funny. Even though there was rainy weather, the restaurant had heat lamps set up, so we weren’t cold at all.
Overall it was a great experience-romantic setting with delicious food!
My order didn’t come as such. Instead of rack of lamb , I got a filet. However the manager came right away and apologized and corrected the problem right away and offered me to partake on what is on the table while waiting to remake the dish which I elected to take home, since I’m already full when I finished. In addition they gave me a small discounted bill. Up until the 4th and main course everything was wonderful. This was my 2nd dining at Cafe Monarch and to be honest , the first time last year was better. The ladies even gotten a surprise small pewter jewelry box. I think the bill was a lot less then . I don’t believe I’ll be back although , it was a very lovely experience unfortunately not the second time around.
This is the best restaurant in Phoenix in my opinion. Absolutely outstanding in food, service and experience.
My wife and I are from Oregon but have lived in New York, Chicago, Tokyo and now home in Oregon. These are all good food destinations.
Cafe Monarch stands out on Phoenix for fine dining.
Amazing Valentine’s Day experience
Absolutely AMAZING!!! From the moment you stepped in the door to after dinner drinks!!!! This place is TOP NOTCH!!!! Kudos out to Wesam, Juan and Peter!!! Could not have asked for better service!!!! After dinner drinks with the most innovative drinks from Andrew and service from Joe and Tito!!!! Do it!!! Owner Christian is hands down the BEST!!!
Very well done, but a little pricey even for excellent food.
One of the best “special occasion” restaurants ever. The food is always outstanding as is the service.
Truly outstanding service and only the pork chop out of 9 items was less than outstanding
In our book, Cafe Monarch lived up to the hype! From the first greeting from the friendly hostess to the array of attentive and professional food servers, we felt well tended to and very well fed! As a vegetarian I was especially impressed with their special menu (I’ve been to other high end restaurants that suggested that I order from the sides menu) - definitely something for everyone in our group. Even though the decor isn’t really our style, who doesn’t appreciate flickering candles everywhere?? I’m happy to know that we truly have a special occasion restaurant in our backyard. Expensive? Yep. But go hungry and prepare to be spoiled!
Exceeded all expectations!!
It was amazing and all staff were wonderful!
Staff were very professional and courteous. The food was amazing!
The restaurant was decorated for Vday perfectly. The waiters presentation was outstanding, description of choices , etc. As always the food was outstanding- but don't expect large portions, just expect 4 courses that are ver different and extremely pleasing to the palette.
I am 58 and have had the privilege to dine in many fine dining restaurants. This is by far the most amazing tastes I have ever experienced. Each course was nothing short of AMAZING on my tongue! I savored each unbelievable tasty bite!
I’ve been on 5Star Cruises & nothing has tasted near this degree of deliciousness.
A lovely atmosphere & kind, professional Service folks from the Parking Lot, Table & all inbetween service folks.
I Loved It!!! You would too.
Poor service. One of the first people in the restaraunt . Main course was very late and warm at best. We think they just forgot about us. Food was very good. They need to work on their efficiency.
Food was absolutely amazing. Service was perfect. The only thing that kept the experience from being perfect overall was a drunk guy at a table next to us swearing constantly and being incredibly obnoxious. Kinda ruins the mood
Absolutely great place for an upscale date night. My girlfriend and I had an all around great time! It was nice that they had a vegetarian menu that didn't limit is to lesser options (she and I are both vegetarian) . The food and drink was delicious and the service was very knowledgeable and helpful.
As always everything was done to perfection. The food is amazing,service,ambience,above any place we’ve been.
What a beautiful restaurant. All of the staff were friendly, courteous, and accommodating. We were greeted as we entered and everyone was wonderful. Our meals were delicious- the steak and fish were outstanding. Wonderful ambiance, dinner, and service.
Service was very very odd. Made us feel uncomfortable from the beginning and then finished the night by telling our table an extremely inappropriate joke. Was a very B movie experience. Would not go back or recommend.
I have had the pleasure to dine here a number of times. On this occasion I had family in from outside the state. They all commented on how wonderful the overall dining experience was. They were amazed with food, ambience and service had several commented that it was the best overall dining experience they have ever had.
Husbands birthday. Loved the special attention he received. Carl was fabulous server. Food was awesome.
Ambiance is very romantic, service was excellent, the four-course meal food was tasty and beautiful. My date stated that was the most tender steak he thinks he's ever had in his life.
