The food was good, the service wasn’t on the same level as the food. Our server was nice and apologetic but the service started out poor and continued on a downward spiral.
The most romantic restaurant. Food is incredible n service is wonderful. 5 star.
Everything was fabulous...it is a very special place.
A very elegant restaurant with creative preparation of the various courses in the pre fixe menu -- "over the top" in the best sense.
The Garden Patio ambiance made my evening as it provided a warm and cozy setting for conversation and dining. Each course of the prix fixe menu was perfectly timed and beautifully prepared. All the wine pairings were exquisite. The wait staff was most helpful in describing dinner choices and accommodated us with all requests. This restaurant rates in my top five dining experiences!
Consumate and delightful excellence. A wonderful dining experience.
Fantastic Food, great Service, wonderful setting, just the best restaurant!!
First rate dining experience. I would expect no less for the $.
Wonderful creative menu with attention to detail. Presentation on point! Worthy of a Michelin Star.
service & food were excellent Sea Bass not as good as I thought it would b but the rest
Every time I come to the southwest, a reservation is made to come the cafe monarch. The food is off the chart delicious.
I was there for an anniversary dinner.
Executive chef Ryan is an up and coming star and by far the tastiest creative menu in Phoenix. The ambiance is geared for romance and relaxation, service is top notch, and all food items are explained in detail. Cafe Monarch is our go to restaurant for romance and I am so thankful for quality places like this one, especially when you want to make that loved one feel special.
Ambiance was as advertised, most charming and romantic especially in the courtyard. Food also excellent as expected.
Our meal was excellent. Food was delicious servers were very professional. Ambience was perfect as we ate outside in a beautiful garden like-like setting.
From the moment you arrive at Cafe Monarch, you sense that it is a very special place. Every member of the staff greets you warmly. The wait staff is skilled in all facets of their responsibility. They communicate succinctly when describing the food choices. They are attentive without hovering. And are engaging to a satisfying degree. We truly enjoyed the dining experience here and would recommend it highly.
Everything was absolutely perfect. The food is spectacular.
Well, I don't give 5 stars - I do now - Cafe Monarch is 5 stars. Food and service were outstanding.
Price point is a bit high but you get what you pay for.
Jamar did an outstanding job serving our table.
Recommend the patio.
Mostly amazing. Great Atmosphere. Great Service, Great Wines Mostly Great Food.....Almost everything was great.......Now the dirt....Chairs are uncomfortable. The springs are busted and our butts fall threw the chairs....after a while you forget about it and get used to it. For the most part the food ranged from good to expectational. The only food course we didn't care for was the dessert. We tried the Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. It was very dense and lacked sweetness. The bananas in it didn't taste flambe or even ripe...? I'd go back and recommend going to this restaurant but I might never eat a dessert here again....I don't think I can recommend getting dessert here...
Amazing experience start to finish! Every dish we had was outstanding with the exception of the surf and turf trio ( they made a last minute substitution without alerting us). The atmosphere- tiny lights, fireplace, music was perfect. It was romantic and upscale without being too formal or stuffy.
Absolutely amazing service and fantastic four course dining . A little heavy on the pocket book, however I've never experienced such amazing service .
My wife and I were thrilled with both the quality of this dining experience .
Would love to visit again
I can’t say enough great things about our dining experience. Sam who waited on us was wonderful. He dealt with my wife’s food restrictions without making her uncomfortable with her requests. And now for the food. One of the best meals I have had in many years. Can’t wait to be back for another round.
We were there for a Birthday dinner. The food was delicious. Our service was good except for right before ordering our food. The server had several tables to look after and there was a delay getting our dinner ordered. After that the service improved.
Creative dishes served in a romantic atmosphere. All service staff was attentive. One of the most memorable birthdays I have spent. Cafe monarch reputation well deserved.
Cafe Monarch is simply a world class restaurant. Ambiance, food, service are all just excellent.
The new location and garden patio are better than ever, and I loved the old location. These guys
have figured it out. The have a real special place which would be a standout anywhere in the world.

I am in love with Cafe Monarch!!! Richard was our server and he was so attentive and engaging. The restaurant looks like it should be in Paris. I took 2 friends for our collective birthdays and they were very impressed. The food is beyond creative and delicious. The cauliflower soup is outstanding as was everything we tried. The amount of food in each selection is perfect. They brought us each a beautiful desert and we each got a birthday gift. Who does that??!! The evening was three things FAB U LOUS!!!!
Great food and ambiance.
We we’re celebrating our anniversary at cafe monarch a place we always wanted to try. The food experience was excellent only topped by the outstanding service we received. We will definitely be back
All dishes delicious and above average, but nothing outrageously incredible. Service was a bit awkward and lacking personality at times. Fake flowers inside and out (except for the ones on the table) looked a little cheap.
This was an unbelievable experience for our anniversary. Highly recommended for special occasions. The staff was fantastic and the meal was out of this world. You have to try this place.
One of the best restaurants in Phoenix/Scottsdale. Food was outstanding and service was impeccable. Beautifully adorned, romantic ambiance. Loved all the food but especially the roasted cauliflower soup, the scallops and the surf and turf trio. Expensive but worth it.
Always the best Phoenix has to offer!
Great place. Drink service could be quicker
Bartender Andrew was outstanding in sharing background of restaurant, waitstaff, drinks. His skills with cocktails are awesome as well.
On to the food and wine pairing... outstanding. We were so stuffed at the end of the meal we could barely walk, so the entree could have been smaller.
We were also brought various other tastes by the waiter, who was himself a level 1 or 2 sommelier.
Service was, of course, impeccable.
I love the way you work through the menu with different entrees being different fixed prices for the meal.
Loved the whole experience including the new space.
Cafe Monarch is one of my favourite restaurants in Arizona. They recently moved locations and I have to say, the new space is fabulous. The service is outstanding, the food is delicious and the ambiance is so very special. A must try for a romantic dinner, special occasion or girls night out!
Perfect in every way.
Amazing! Highly recommend dining here. Amazing food and cocktails. The dessert was absolutely delicious. Our server was great.
Creative menu, excellent service and a wonderful ambience, all add up to a very refined, pleasurable evening. We loved the sea bass, spare ribs and Maine scallops. Everything was top notch!
Another spectacular anniversary dinner at Monarch! From the complimentary champagne toast to the sparkler on the dessert, this was a delicious, creative meal in a beautiful setting. White table cloth, highly-attentive service, many options for the entree choice. A bit pricey, but worth it.
Romantic ambience, great food, and very polite/friendly staff! Felt as if we were in Europe.
