Wonderful food and service great way to celebrate a birthday.
Absolutely incredible. Perfect service. Delicious food. Wish I had ate less during the day since it was so much food. Loved our servers. Drinks were incredible. Cannot recommend more.
Best dining experience in memory. Food, wine, service and atmosphere were first class.
I tried the vegetarian menu (have to ask for it) it was amazzzzing. Service on par as always. Lovely experience.
Great dinner, service snd atmosphere
Dined in top restaurants in New Orleans, Boston, Seattle, Hawaii, Oregon, Maine and Nevada, not to mention Kai and Durants in Phoenix!! Cafe Monaco is our favorite!!
Fantastic dinner. From ambience to servers to food was excellent. Also felt they were good at keeping the all areas “clean”. Never felt worried about health factors.
Voted the most romantic restaurant in Arizona. I agree. Awesome restaurant.
Pinnacle of fine dining. Expensive but high quality food and amazing wine list.
Cafe Monarch is a superb choice for a special occasion! The service was impeccable, the food featured unusual courses which were absolutely delicious. The entrees were wonderful. The wine list runs to about 120 pages! We ate on the patio, which was very peaceful and quiet. Ideal for celebrating our anniversary.
Amazing food & night! We will be back!
Excellent service in a beautiful outdoor space. As always tasty and imaginative menu.
Took my friend here for dinner and it's just the ultimate experience. 10/10
Great spot for a nice dinner. Wonderful service. Incredible wine list.
If you're into food this is a must. Pretty amazing combinations.
I do recommend the chef's tastings as some of my favorite dishes I wouldn't have thought to order. So so good.
Best meal in town!
Exceeded high expectations. Amazing attention to details from the romantic decor to the exceptional food and service. Perfect place for a special celebration. Can't wait to return!
Special date night with my husband. Most beautiful and romantic restaurant I have ever seen! The 8 course tasting with wine pairing was incredible. The service from Chris was five star. The love and care the owners and staff feel for this restaurant comes through in every detail.
It was our first time experience having a multi-course meal. The portions are the right size to make you feel satisfied at the end of your culinary journey without making you feel overly stuffed. The was incredible! This is definitely an experience everyone should try at least once.
This was a one of a kind experience! Best food, service and charming atmosphere. Monarch is a must and top of the list!
Noel and the team were fabulous. You make dining a delicious experience.
Best experience ever! From the moment we walked in to bing the last people in the restaurant we were treated like we were VIP! We ordered the 8 course with the wine pairing! Every dish and pairing was outstanding! Thank you for a great experience!
Worthy of a Michelin Star!!! The space is romantic and gorgeously designed.
Robert (waiter) was absolutely amazing! We did outdoor dining. The ambiance was elegant and enchanting, the food was spectacular, the service was extremely timely, and the whole experience was magnificent. We would highly recommend!! One of our best meals ever!
Exceptional service from knowlegeable waiter, some of the best food in Scottsdale I have had in years
Amazing experience !!! Went on our honeymoon and they gave us complimentary champagne snd dessert. Food was incredible. Such an amazing place. Great service. Everything was 10/10.
The outside patio at Cafe Monarch is very special - beautiful! The wine list was exceptional! We dropped $625 for 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 11 and 13) so just be ready to spend some cash for the experience.
We ordered Pork Belly Salad (delicious, but would have loved to have had more greens on the plate), Tuna Tataki (amazing), Niman Ranch Ribeye (above average), New Zealand Lamb Rack (generous proportion, would have loved more of the Pistachio Crust), Maple Leaf Farm Duck Breast (STAR of the table! Wish there was just a tad more of the Amarena Cherries-Port Jus) and the Frutti di Mare (also INCREDIBLE - seafood was cooked to perfection, but would have loved a dozen more strands of the Linguine).
Towards the end of our meal, we had a difficult time getting the attention of our waiter and when we did want to order dessert and more drinks, too much time had passed waiting on him (I think he forgot about us). We were there for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
We noticed that out of the 18 choices we had on the menu none were vegetarian. It would have been great to have had at least 2 options for vegetables/greens/salads, as 95% of the menu was heavy protein focused.
As visitors from another state, this restaurant is still our top choice for great food and a wonderful atmosphere in Scottsdale. The 5 course selections were outstanding. As expected, the restaurant has a superb wine list and our server did a fine job pointing us in the right direction.
It is quiet and romantic and a little bit of heaven on earth with the beauty of the place.
What can I say?!!!! AMAZING! Yes, it’s a pricey restaurant but it’s absolutely the most exceptional find experience we’ve had in all of Scottsdale! Great date night!
In general, I think this restaurant is overrated. Enough already with the "happy birthday, Sir" from 6-7 people (it was my husband's bday). They have a great wine list. The foie gras/banana bread was delicious, but WAY too much banana bread. The roasted pepper and corn soup was wonderful. The branzino was overcooked. My family loved the pork belly salad. The tuna tartare didn't really have very much flavor. The lamb was great; my duck breast was very good (not great) but not enough sauce and the sous vide rib roast was awful. Too cutesy on the drink glasses. They also need to sharpen their steak knives for the 4th course. We all struggled to cut our meats.
We won't be going back.
Exceptional food, elegant atmosphere and superior service. Fabulous place!!!!
Always an exceptional experience. We love coming here and will keep coming for our special occasions
Wonderful ambiance, superior service & excellent food! Extensive wine and drink choices. Our experience was delightful!
Excellent experience!!! Highly recommended!!
The BEST meal! I had cauliflower soup, which was off menu. Generally, I don’t like soup, but this was the best soup I’ve ever eaten. My husband had lamb for his main course and said it was cooked to perfection. Kellan was our waiter and recommended how each course should be cooked. I had duck, and it was delicious. We were celebrating my birthday and they brought out a special banana dessert with a sparkler. Very festive! Philip was warm and welcoming and Matt did an excellent job keeping our water glasses full. We will definitely be back!
The most pleasant experience from beginning to end. Delicious food, great ambiance, soft background music, gracious service.
New menu drop so not sure if that’s why the food was just good. I was expecting to be mind blown. Service was fantastic, but definitely not worth the price overall. We won’t be back.
Very nice meal, but save it for a very special occasion! It is very pricey.
We came for our wedding anniversary, wanted to go to a special place, and were not disappointed! The food is fantastic, service and ambiance top notch. Probably the best restaurant we've been to in Arizona. I highly recommend for a special occasion.
The outdoor patio is lovely.
