It is perfect fine dining. Staff was knowledgeable and courteous, food was outstanding and the ambiance was the most romantic place I’ve ever been. Loved it!
Perfect for a special occasion! Great service and the ambiance on the courtyard was perfect.
First class and fabulous from start to finish!
Loved it for our anniversary.
This was our second time here, and as with our last time we were highly impressed! It was my sister-in-law‘s birthday, and everyone did such a wonderful job in acknowledging her and making her feel special. We will definitely be back!
Absolutely nothing in Phoenix compares to Cafe Monarch: There are no more superlatives to describe than that. If you want the best, this is it.
The service was amazing! The food was out of this world delicious! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Will be recommending Cafe Monarch to our friends and family and will be returning if we are still in the state for our one year wedding anniversary.
Perfect place to go for special occasion
This is a very special restaurant that is the finest cuisine and service. The four course meal offers a taste of a variety of foods without being overwhelming. Nicely done! A real gem in Scottsdale!
Our waiter; Chris; was excellant. All others very good.
I mophed ere from southern Cal about a year and a half ago and have been enjoying myself going to all the restaurants I can find and indulging myself in the experience. A great may of them are also in southern Cal but I have also enjoyed others that are tremendous and have incredible ambiance and phenomenal wait staff. Element, T Cooks, Virtu have all been exceptional but this surpasses them. The food is so saturated in flavor. This is not a place to go to on a weekly basis as the foods are rich and the price is on the higher end but it is a place I would go to every couple of months for certain and if I had friends or family in town it would be on the top of the list
Cafe Monarch is, hands down, the most delightful, delicious and extraordinary dining event one could hope for. From the exquisite service, to the beautiful presentation, to the simply decadent courses, the entire experience is one to be savored.
Noah was a most gracious and knowledgeable host. Every course of the meal was delightful, however, as tasty as the butter cake dessert was, it’s presentation was not up to par with the rest of the meal. (Not a criticism, just some friendly feedback.)
Cafe Monarch has everything you imagine a top tier, world class special occasion establishment should have. Ambience, pleasing staff, and imaginative and tasty offerings. The sole misalignment was a price point that is better aligned with San Francisco or Midtown Manhattan, where high prices are necessary in order to cover exhorbitant rents. Plan to drop about $200 per person which includes a 4-course prize fixe, 2 drinks, dessert and gratuity. I highly recommend the restaurant, especially for very special lifetime celebrations
Our server Chris did a great job for us. He knew the food and made great suggestions on how to order since it was our first time. He was also outstanding with his wine knowledge. We could not have enjoyed our food and wine pairings more. Across the board it was great flavor and quality. We also want to say thank you to the entire team for making my wife's birthday a great one. The host greeted us with a Happy Birthday. Chris the server did too. Plus, and this was very cool, the person who delivered our food also said Happy Birthday. We enjoyed our experience tremendously! Thank you.
From start to finish..
Life’s too short not too
Excellent all around; glad we chose to dine here & they certainly earned/maintain their position on the list of Top 100 restaurants in America.
One of the finest restaurants that I have every had the pleasure of dining at. Very expensive and worth every penny. Will certainly return for ultra special occasions.
A true dining experience. From the valet parking, to the mixologist at the bar, right on through 6 courses. Fabulous menu choices. Excellent service. Great atmosphere. A place for a very special occasion.
Absolute perfection! A four course tasting menu with wine pairings served by Sam was from start to finish was absolutel perfection
A wonderful place with excellent and unique dishes presented well by an attentive staff.
Thank you for a beautiful, outstanding, memorable evening!
This meal was one of our best ever. Every moment was enjoyable, the setting was beautiful, and the food was exquisite. Portions were perfect and we left satisfied but not stuffed. Even the music was perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant if you want a very special dining experience.
This is the first time we have been since they moved to a new location. Everything was so elegant and gorgeous. All of the staff were so kind and fun. We will dine here again very soon.
Absolutely love this restaurant - the food, the ambiance, and the service are always spot on. This evening was a special wine tasting dinner with wines from a Paeso Robles winery. We thought the wines were disappointing but the food and service were fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is into fine dining, amazing food, and incredible service. They also have a wonderful wine list.
One of the best dining experiences ever! We have been coming to Scottsdale for years, and have always shied away from this place because of the mandatory four course fixed-price format. Don't! The courses are small but exquisite. The experience is drawn out - in our case almost three hours. Super romantic ambiance. Incredibly attentive while not intrusive service. Expensive, so best saved for a special occasion. But worth every Benjamin!
Note: I believe you can order this exquisite food ala carte at the bar only.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 30th wedding anniversary dinner here. The ambiance, the service, and the food were superb. We are dining enthusiasts, and Cafe Monarch stands shoulder to shoulder with top spots in NYC, London, and more. Highly recommended.
Without a doubt the best place I've ever been. Everything was 10+. Definitely recommend for any special occasion or just a nice evening out.
A truly wonderful experience! Every course was a delight. Amazing wine list too. Staff and service was excellent. The menu offers something for everyone. A most definitely 5 star restaurant
Cafe Monarch continues to be one of our very favorite restaurants. We love sitting in the outside courtyard. The ambiance is delightful, with water features, soft music, candle light, and fresh air. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. A wonderful dining experience!
FABULOUS DINING Experience!!! I love everything about Cafe Monarch. The cuisine is delicious and the service is wonderful. A romantic Old World favorite of ours.
Excellent, beyond our expectations!
This meal hands down was the BEST meal I have Weber eaten! Every bite was as if I’d died & gone to heaven. A truly memorable dining experience. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, will be back soon!
Wonderful surroundings and an impeccable waitstaff start you out for a great evening. Great wine list missing some but with terrific alternatives that were very pleasant surprises. The food was off the hook. Do t let the small portions of the first three courses fool you - you will leave very well fed. The lamb chops are wonderful, as was the lobster ravioli. And the tiger prawns are a must. O e of the top 5 meals in America today.
Cafe Monarch does not disappoint! Fantastic for a special occasion or date night, with a romantic setting and service that makes one feel like royalty! The food is delicious with well rounded choices and is also fit for foodies. The courses were beautifully presented! Cocktails are carefully crafted and wine parings at two price points. They do ask about food allergies if needed.
An absolutely stunning and classy restaurant. Not only was the food outstanding, but it was an experience in itself to just take note of the clientele. Definitely the Mercedes crowd.
Very expensive but wonderful Beautiful evening to eat outdoors.
Fabulous meal! The service was impeccable! Everything was delicious and especially loved the octopus! Highly recommend it for a special night out.
This was by far the best dining experience we have ever had. The food was the best food we have ever had and the service was incredible. The ambiance was perfect and we loved every minute of this experience. We have already recommended this restaurant to many people since our dining experience 2 days ago. I feel like any 5 star rating I have given a restaurant in the past should have been a 3 or 4 because NOTHING compares to the food and dining experience of Cafe Monarch.
They over cooked a filet that was replaced quickly and added a free outstanding desert for their mistake. Awesome place.
