I’m in my mid 30s, and we went out for our anniversary dinner. Was AMAZING! A very special occasion. Higher price but totally worth the price. Loved all the care and effort the staff took to make sure we were having a great experience. Will go back again for sure!

I read on yelp there was a $10 corkage fee. When we got there they told us they did not have a series 7 license to accommodate the wine we brought! So we had to buy one of theirs! Was not happy about that! They should put that on there website!

Amazing dining experience - Richard was our impressive server and couldn’t have had better service than he gave. Very professional but down to earth at the same time. Their sommelier Sam was super knowledgeable and paired every dish perfectly with their extensive wine list. Can’t wait to go back.

Incredible food & beautiful setting. Awesome for a special occasion. Prices, including drinks, were double what we are accustomed to, dimming our enjoyment somewhat. Although we truly appreciated the beautifully prepared & presented food, this meal was a few notches above what we enjoy.

The service outstanding. Samual was fabulous. We loved our food. We just felt that the entire was a bit rich given all of the food before it. Wish we had known how rich the seafood fetticcini would be and we would have opted for the grilled sea bass. Overall, a wonderful food feast! We will be back.

The new location is amazing. The tables were far enough apart that I didn't feel like I was listening into conversations. The wait staff was incredible. They described the food and made me want to try all of it, and we're very attentive to all of our needs. Highly recommend. Very romantic atmosphere.

We love coming to Monarch. We feel lije the only people in the room because if the attention we receive.
The wine list is very diverse, with some old and rare bottles, as well as some of the most recently reviewed labels in Wine Spectator. And, you can try the Coravin bottles by the ounce! It’s a great way to sample some spectacular wines.
The menu choices are always tempting. The vegetarian menu offers extraordinary plates as well. They aren’t afterthoughts with the proteins just pulled off the regular menu.
Monarch is expensive and the food and experience is worth every dollar. Maybe even a bargain in the Valley!

Wow!! What a great place to spend a 10-year anniversary. My wife has been talking about this place for over 3 years and we finally made. Everything from top to bottom was 5 star and our server Sam surprised us with a couple of treats. I can see why this place is #1 in Arizona and Top 100 in the UNited States. We will definitely be coming back here more often.

My wife and I were celebrating our 7th anniversary. I have a shellfish allergy that was more than adequately accommodated. Although a bit pricey the value is there given the quality of food and service. It was one of the best meals my wife and I have had and we've eaten at a few Michelin Starred restaurants. If you are looking to splurge or don't have to worry much about cost this is a must in the Valley.

Cafe Monarch offers a most romantic setting. The fresh flowers give an enchanted feeling. The table setting was perfect and the service was impeccable. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The menu was very generous in its choices. The rack of lamb was done to perfection and the buccatini with seafood was a wonderful and innovative dish.

I couldn't have picked a more wonderful restaurant to celebrate my mother's birthday. The restaurant space is breathtaking and when you add in the incredible mouth-watering cuisine and the outstanding service, you have a truly memorable dining experience. Our waiter Jemar and his team attended to our every need and were engaged with us throughout our dinner. The prix fixe menu was a true delight to experience. I can't say enough about how amazing our evening was. Hats off to the team at Café Monarch for helping to create wonderful memories for its clientele!
