Excellent experience and perfect spot for an anniversary celebration. The whole night from start to finish was exceptional.
Excellent service, food, wine list. One of the best restaurants we have eaten at in Scottsdale.
Everything about this experience was outstanding. The food was superb, in just the right quantities. Service couldn't be better. Ambience is lovely. Background music was lovely but sometimes sound clashed with ambient noise in the room.
The service, food and wine pairings are second to none!!
If you are looking for the best fine dining experience that the Valley has to offer, this is it. Filling the void that Mary Elaine’s left.
Very unique experience that was well executed, especially the Somms
If you get a chance to experience this fabulous restaurant, please do. Me and my wife came here for our Anniversary. The front desk greeted us with wonderful smiles and so welcoming for us to be there. The waiter and staff were very welcoming also and were top notch/ professional. Our waiter answered every question that my wife had asked about the courses on the menu. We decided to do the 4 coarse meal and every plate that came out, was fantastic to the taste. Because, of the combination of flavors that they prepared on the plate. The food was Beautifully arranged on every plate. The one of the coarse plate that came out, I remember the most was the “ Roasted Cauliflower Soup”. I could have had a second or third bowl. The taste truly impressed to my Taste buds. A little expensive, but well with the money.
Outstanding as usual. Fantastic food and service. Always a treat to dine at Monarch. Unlike many of the newer restaurants in Scottsdale, here the food is always the priority.
The food was outstanding, we had the vegetarian menu. The decor needs to be updated and more consistent.
Everything was amazing!
Food, service and atmosphere is superb! Will definitely be back.
Outstanding Anniversary Dinner! Thank you so much
An incredible dining experience as always. The food and service is superb!
Very special restaurant. Superb service. Delicious tasting food and exquisite presentation. Very romantic ambience. Expensive but well worth it for a special occasion
Food doesn’t get much better. And the service was extraordinary
Best dinner we’ve ever had and it isn’t even close. The staff/service was immaculate and the food was even better. Thank you so much.
First time we have visited here but definitely won’t be the last! An amazing evening with some friends celebrating my husbands birthday. Food hands down the best we’ve had in the 6 years we have lived in Arizona - rack of lamb was so good - and service was second to none. All the staff so attentive and polite. Agreed, it is not a cheap night out, but in this case you definitely get what you pay for. Perfect for a special occasion- roll on my birthday! 😁
The food and service are consistantly incredible. Cafe Monarch will likely be the first to earn Michilin Stars in this state.
The outdoor patio was beautiful, the service was outstanding and the food was better than expected. Overall it was a great experience.
We eat here for every special occasion as well as when we just want to treat ourselves and
have never been disappointed.
Amazing experience and a wonderful location to celebrate a special event. We will definitely be coming back.
Cafe Monarch was a total treat. The entire Crew made us feel special and took great care of us. The food was fantastic. You could tell the Chef and Staff have a passion for exceptionally fine dishes that you just will not find at other restaurants. We enjoyed every minute of our dining experience and look forward to our next visit.
This place is a true GEM! Absolutely amazing fine dining!
Elegant surroundings and enjoyable dining, with great service to top it off. Fantastic welcome at the door, all the way to being seated. Thanks so much for a great evening. The little gift was a nice touch.
Superb! Very Impressive !
My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary last night. We had a fabulous time. Sam and the rest of the staff were wonderful and treated us like treasured family. We are grateful and will be back.
Staff was attentive and wanting to make for a favorable experience. Food presentations, taste, and decor very pleasant.
Very enjoyable experience
Absolutely incredible meal. We loved everything about our time at Cafe Monarch. Perfectly romantic for our anniversary dinner
The ambiance and wait staff were amazing the food left a bit to be desired nothing that blew me away...
Probably as fine a restaurant we’ve ever been to. Its culinary excellence at the highest level.
Amazing. Service, food and ambiance were outstanding. A wonderful evening and a fantastic dining experience.
First time here. Had an amazing experience. Great tasty food, great service and loved the mescal drink! Can’t wait to be back.
Had our anniversary dinner here last night and it was one of the best meals we’ve had in years and top 3 meals ever. The menu changes about every 2-3 weeks and every server is at least a level 1 Somalia. Incredible service and the best romantic atmosphere. Definitely recommend sitting outside in the garden patio. We went in early June and it was still perfectly cool with the misters going in the area. A must go to for a special occasion!!
Monarch continues to be the best restaurant in Arizona and among the best I've ever been to anywhere. Every course is perfect - every item of stemware, silverware, plates match the food and wine/cocktails. The pork belly preparation on the current menu may be the best plate of food ever placed before me. Thank you to every staff member who makes this place special!
A great place for a celebration! The cocktails. Staff, and food was fantastic. Compliments to the Chef for a fabulous pairing and exquisite presentation.
Great place for special occasion. 90 page wine list. Very interesting menu. Beautiful decor & great service. Expensive but worth it !
