We went for my kids anniversary and the service and food was awesome as usual! We received a complimentary glass of champagne and desert. Always a wonderful experience
Great food, service , wine selection.
There is not a better place in Arizona to eat
Without a doubt the most impressive dining experience my wife and I have had. The service alone is well worth the trip but the food and ambiance put this place over the top. Highly recommend!
Beautiful atmosphere, exquisite cuisine and lovely service. It truly lives up to its stellar reputation.
Great Restraunt... incredible food...superb service...excellent wine pairings... what Dining out is meant to be!
Restaurant in town, one of the best in the country. Great staff and excellent food!
This place if phenomenal. I certainly understand why reservations sometimes must be made up to a year in advance. The venue is beautiful, with a sort of old world ambiance, the service is immaculate, and the food cannot be beat. Not a cheap date, but worth every penny. jag
Absolutely without question the best restaurant in the valley. Service was impeccable but personable Staff all knowledgeable about each dish. Sommelier was very knowledgeable and approachable. Food on par with top Napa restaurants. Personable and professional service exceeds French laundry Our top recommendation.
We visited this past weekend for our anniversary and it was amazing!! Great food, great service. We highly recommend! Best dining experience we have ever had!
This was a great experience my wife and I loved the overall time we had together at this fine dining establishment. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a whole experience.
Perfect place for a romantic night or in our case celebrating a graduation. This is the best dinner experience in Scottsdale by far.
It's pricey, but it's a wonderful experience. Great for a special occasion.
Always a great experience every thing is done in a way that makes the evening special!
Wonderful place to spend a romantic night. The ambiance is wonderful. The evening was quiet and we never had to raise our voice to speak to each other. Service was phenomenal. Every server is a sommelier. They offer a four-course pre-fix. Just enough food so you are not too full. They also offer a wine pairing where they give you a glass of wine with each course. Great pairings!
This place is very expensive but you get what you pay for. My wife got the Sea Bass, I got the New York Wagyu. We both got the wine pairings. With tip, it was $600
Outstanding food and service in a quiet romantic setting.
The wine pairing with the different courses was great. Enjoyed several fine wines with the appropriate dish. The ambiance and service exceeded expectations. Would recommend Cafe Monarch to anyone. Thanks for making our anniversary a most memorable occasion.
Enjoyed the experience. With the smaller portions I felt I might still be hungry after desert. As it was, after the fourth course, I could not even force myself to have desert. I was looking forward to the rum cake and gelato. Never did get to taste it. Perhaps next time.
I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fine dining experience.
Extraordinary place. Very clean. Fantastic food choices, all cooked to perfection and with artistic presentation. Great location in Old Town. Easy parking. Expensive but very well worth it.
It was wonderful! Had a great time with my girlfriend.
It was our first time at the Monarch and was an evening to remember. Celebrated my husband’s birthday. Sat outside with tables separated nicely and misters. The food was over the top. Definitely a ‘fine dining’ experience.
Excellent food (EVERY BITE). Excellent service! I'm back at work after the long weekend today, and have already recommended Cafe Monarch to multiple people.
Everything was first class as advertised. Staff was helpful and knew the menu inside and out. Would definitely recommend and return!
Among the best restaurant i ve ever been to! So romantic, worth every penny
Amazing all around. Arizona gem!!
This venue really lives up to its reputation. The food and service were exceptional. I cant wait to go back.
The food is brilliant, the service is outstanding, and the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable.
Wonderful evening for our first night out after the virus.
The food and service never fails! Always excellent and creative presentation and quality culminate in fabulous taste. The staff is wonderful!!
Happy to return to our fav place.
Staff welcoming as always. Great food.
Food was slow being served- probably just getting back in the normal swing with new safety measures.
Very awesome experience. Kyle was our waiter and he was excellent. Food was special and atmosphere elegant.
From the moment their valet opened my car door for me to step out, to our last bite of dessert, Cafe Monarch proved to be one of Scottsdale’s all time best restaurant experiences. Our 4-course meal was exceptional and the flavor profiles of each dish spoke for themselves. Some of our favorites were the cauliflower purée soup, salmon, lamb, and passion fruit mousse! Our server and the Cafe Monarch team were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and illuminated class. Additionally, the ambience was magically romantic and relaxing with the various lit lanterns, foliage, and flowers surrounding us as we dined. Thank you, Cafe Monarch!
Amazing, amazing experience, food, wine and service! This restaurant will be our regular date night destination!
Great first meal on our honeymoon...amazing food, wine pairings, and customer service. Our sommelier Wesam was especially attentive and passionate about his wine pairings!
Lovely place and staff was exceptional! I will definitely come back next time I’m in Scottsdale. Food was amazing and great cocktails too. Highly recommend!!!
We were a little surprised that Cafe Monarch was operating in a "business as usual" fashion after the reopening. No one visible to customers was wearing masks or gloves, the tables were set up as before (with every table in use on the patio), and even valet parking was in use. The only difference that we could see is that we were handed a paper menu.
In the midst of the pandemic we expected more. The food and service was as good as ever, but we were left a little uneasy by the restaurant's approach to the current situation.
A very special safe environment to relax and forget the outside world
It was my first night out after the shutdown and it was a great choice. The food, ambience and service were all superb. The wine pairing added to the enjoyment of the experience, and our waiter had charisma to burn, along with a great sense of humor. It was a thoroughly enjoyable, satisfying experience.
We have eaten in many amazing restaurants while traveling abroad, this by far was one of the BEST. Everything was perfect: the ambiance, the quiet patio, the food presentation, and our server Robert was simply fantastic. We loved hearing about our food and wine pairings from someone who was not only very knowledgeable but clearly enjoyed the service he provided! Just Wonderful! Thank you for making our wedding anniversary celebration so special. We will be back!
