Best dining experience ever. Kind staff and food left me speechless
Best restaurant in town by a country mile. The service was incredible and the food even better.
Fantastic evening! Celebrated a birthday here and we will remember it always :) The food was fantastic, so many food pairings I wouldn't have thought of, but were delicious, and the service was just excellent. Worth every penny for the amazing memories!
All was very nice and a great evening
Great experience and amazing service!!!!
Very good food and excellent wine
It was a fantastic meal service, the service and staff are great. The only thing that topped the fantastic service staff was the food. It was incredible, all parts were detailed and on point. They even made the birthday dinner more memorable by giving us a surprise! Will be recommending to anyone who is going to, or is in Phoenix that Cafe Monarch is a must! Thank you for the wonderful evening!
Michelin star service with great ambiance! Hidden gem in old town Scottsdale!
My favorite place to dine! Great service, creative menu that is well executed time and time again.
This was an incredible dining experience!Juliette was highly knowledgeable about the menu and an excellent sommelier. The best experience all the way around!
I would have to pull out a dictionary to describe how amazing everything was. From the first course to dessert and the drinks!! My husband had the old fashion and said it was so smooth. Since I’m pregnant, I got mock tails, and they were still amazing. Definitely worth it.
So wonderful from start to finish. We will be recommending this restaurant to friends and family.
Amazing place!! The servers were awesome. Food was delicious’n
Phenomenal. Inspired vegetarian tasting menu. My best bites of the year.
I have been here several times, always before it was a fantastic example.
Not this time. For the money I expected first class service. It didn’t happen this time. Orders were forgotten. A request for an extra glass of wine was simply ignored.
A drink order for my wife was ignored.
First courses were small, though good
Not sure I will go back soon
Celebrated my daughters birthday there last night. food was excellent and good price point. they offered complementary champaign and dessert and even a gift. so above and beyond! service was excellent as well. highly recommend. sitting outside the cool mist was a bit too much. my handbag was getting wet!
Daniel was wonderful as were all the servers
Excellent food and service. My wife and I enjoyed it tremendously.
Outstanding dining experience. The 4 course entrees were exceptional along with the wine pairings. The staff was gracious and very attentive. A truly wonderful evening.
The dining experience was exceptional! The service was spot on, the food was exquisite, and the attention to detail was magnificent!
We had an exceptional dining experience at Cafe Monarch last night! We were celebrating my daughter's 17th birthday, and everyone greeted her with warm birthday greetings from the moment we stepped through the door. The valet even crossed the street from the parking lot to help us get a family photo in the pretty courtyard. Our waiter, Robert, was simply superb - very knowledgeable, warm, and welcoming. The restaurant decor is just beautiful - elegant, sparkly and sophisticated - the perfect setting to celebrate a special occasion. The food was perhaps the best meal we have ever had - we had the duck, the rack of lamb and the frutti di mare - one more spectacular than the next. (we are from NYC - have eaten in some of the best restaurants in Manhattan -Cafe Monarch rivals the best of them) The cocktails were also outstanding, and they converted their signature cocktails to mocktails, which my teenagers enjoyed and appreciated. All in all, a perfect evening, and a special memory we will always cherish. Thank you!
The service and food were impeccable. We felt truly special.
Wonderful dinner and we'll be back soon!! This was an anniversary celebration and we love to have them here!
Amazing, worth every bite
We booked a first time reservation at Cafe Monarch for our 17th wedding anniversary and we were so impressed by our experience my husband wanted to go back the following evening. The restaurant itself is gorgeous with a romantic candlelight ambiance. The entire staff from the hostess check in to the bartenders to the wait staff were inviting and knowledgeable. Our meal was absolutely amazing and each course perfectly sized and timed. My husband ordered the lamb, which was the main reason we chose Cafe Monarch for our meal as lamb is his favorite and he exclaimed it was the best he ever had. He has not stopped raving about our meal to everyone he talks to. We loved it so much we considered coming back the next night. The head chef's choices and presentations were flavorful but light, creative but not overly ostentatious. We will absolutely be back when the menu changes to experience the new options.
Excellent restaurant, I would highly recommend it.
One of the top 4 restaraunt a we’ve ever been to in our lives, what a special place.
My best friend and I went for a girls dinner, we had so much fun over 3 hours, four courses & dessert, wine pairing. It was all exceptional!! Highly recommend!
Cafe Monarch never disappoints. The food is seasonal, fresh and innovative. The staff is attentive without being obnoxious and the decor is first class. Make you reservations well in advance because they book up quickly. If you want a special dining experience to remember, Cafe Monarch is a must.
very crowded causing echo from people talking. food is poor quality, we found sand particle in the dishes, had strong pungent ammonia smell on sea food dishes. very poor quality overall compare to any fine dining restaurant. I know such things can happen sometimes in average to below average restaurant, but should not be in a fine dining. will not reccomend and will not visit again.
We have been coming to cafe monarch every year for our anniversary and will not be stopping anytime soon! Hands down the best service and best meals we’ve had all year each time we visit. Worth every penny!
This restaurant was amazing everything was just perfect, setting, service, wine and food! We will highly recommend Cafe Monarch!
This restaurant is consistently the best we have ever been to. The ambiance, service, wine list, menu and food are all spectacular
It’s not inexpensive but it delivers every time.
Everybody was very friendly, courteous, and helpful!
Enjoyed very much my birthday celebration with my husband♥️. Love the food!
This is an outstanding restaurant, with very talented chefs. We had the 8-course tasting menu, which was superb. We enjoyed every dish, but outstanding ones were -- shrimp with pineapple ceviche, braised pork belly, sea bass (exquisitely moist) with delicately fried calamari, rack of lamb with with apricot preserve and purple potato frite. The service was attentive and the courses arrived at a nice pace -- not hurried, but right on the heels of the other. Very well organized front-of-house. Excellent for a celebration or important date.
Second time here, both for anniversaries. This is a special occasion place with beautiful ambience and top-notch service. Overall food is really good and you have to be extremely picky to find fault here although foodies that we are we had a few minor dings. However, in no way did they take away from the complete dining experience. Special shout-out to the Chef, kitchen and wait staff who handled a gluten-free meal for a person with celiac without a problem.
I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it!!!!!!!!!!
Everything was perfectly done
My sister was so happy
So was I.
Look, it’s expensive. Really expensive. But it’s one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The food, the flavors, the drinks, the wine. Also, the service was TREMENDOUS. Literally a perfect night. Thank you ♥️
