Absolutely amazing! Everything from the food to the enviroment was great. Beautiful place for a specia occasion.
Great food and exceptional service. Highly recommend.
Food quality and presentation was great. Some small service issues - no steak knife was provided to my wife with her beef tenderloin order, therefore my wife had to wait a couple of minutes before we could eat. Servers bumped into my chair a number of times because the outdoor seating created very narrow aisles. Servers presented the wrong course choice a couple of times to my wife and I, which we just easily switched with each other. These are minor service items, but I feel need to be worked on in order to improve the experience.
Superb! Everything was absolutely wonderful
We were told this was the best restaurant in this area. Quite disappointed. The food was average at best. At least compared to the usual places we dine.
Amazing culinary experience from beginning to end. The staff is incredible and the food is spectacular! Beautiful ambiance for a very special occasion.
This is one of the finest retardants in Phoenix. Wonderful ambiance with excellent service and outstanding cuisine....but with a price tag. Be prepared to spend at least $150 per person.
Food portions too small. Patrons should be called by last names not informally.
Loved everything about cafe monarch. Will be back!!
I surprised my love with a special evening at cafe monarch to celebrate his birthday. Everything was beyond my expectations. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was amazing, and the service was beyond amazing. It is quite a ways outside of our normal price range but was well worth every penny.
We think this restaurant is amazing and will go back again and again
One of the best dining experiences we have ever had. From the service to the food everything was exceptional. Richard was our server and outstanding as was the sommelier Sam.
Four course meal. Each course was delicious, beautifully prepared and presented. Fixed price based on entree chosen.
Amazing food, on par with the best restaurants in LA and NYC. By far the best spot in Scottsdale for fine dining.
Absolutely divine in every way!
What a tremendous experience! This is hands down the BEST restaurant in Scottsdale, and that's saying something! have been wanting to go there for years and SO glad we finally did. Everything is impeccably done; greeting, servers, food wine/cocktails...everything! The only warning I can give is you are there for the long haul (3+ hours for us) so if you're in a hurry for a quick bite, this wouldn't be the place for you. Really though, you owe it to yourself to experience it at least once. I know we'll be back!
We were welcomed by All from the moment we arrived. The waiter was very knowledgeable of the dishes on the menu. We all enjoyed our meals, over-the-top tasty! The service was impeccable-napkins folded when we stepped away from the table, water glasses always full, etc. Loved the whole ambiance of the restaurant. Upon leaving the chef thanked us for coming as did all the wait staff. It is a special occasion restaurant, our 46th anniversary this time, and we look forward to celebrating another special event!
Menu allows a variety of tasting options and had exceptional presentation of the various items to add to the experience
This was our third trip to Phoenix and our third time to this fabulous restaurant!! Everything is as it should be!! The staff is amazing, the ambiance is breathtaking and the food is the best you’ve ever had!! Cafe Monarch sets the bar, period. We even went back on our last night in Phoenix to eat there one more time and try something else. We ate on the romantic patio and it was a little piece of heaven.
Great spot for a special occasion. Food is awesome, Service is Awesome.
Our sommelier was very good.
Wait staff knowledgeable and very pleasant.
Food was very good, one dish a little under seasoned.
Atmosphere is as advertised.
Wanted to celebrate my wife's 52 nd birthday in style and we were not dissappointed. Fabulous culinary experience with a wine list to match. Would recommend to anyone for any occasion.
We were treated like royalty. A perfect birthday celebration!
This was the most incredible experience we have had. From the ambiance, to the staff, to the incredible cuisine. This place was definitely one of the most special places we have ever been. We were so well taken care of and we will certainly be back!
Celebrated our anniversary. We will likely make this an annual celebratory spot. The service, food, ambiance was incredible. Do the wine pairing! When you’re getting dessert, try the guarijillo ( taste like ice coffee but 10x better). Even the valet saw us trying to take a picture and ran across the street to do it for us and get our ticket. Overall great experience and will be telling all our friends!
Service beyond expectation...Richard was a true professional. Food was flawless and delicious. Extensive wine list.
Cafe Monarch never fails to impress!! Another fabulous evening - every detail was very mindful and thoughtfully executed. Our waiter, Chris, did a fabulous job in ensuring that everything we never thought of to ask was taken care of.
We were afraid as this restaurant received so much notoriety that it would lose its edge as a great place to eat. It actually is getting better. IMO, best restaurant in the Phoenix area.
A beautiful restaurant with excellent food and even better service. The restaurant was perfect for our business dinner - the restaurant wasn't too loud for us to speak across the table. It was perfect!
Our visit to Cafe Monarch was extraordinary. The food, experience, and atmosphere were perfect. Sam (our waiter) was exceptional in every way!!!! Thank you for making our anniversary perfect.
We were celebrating my son’s twenty first birthday this time at Cafe Monarch and it was amazing as always.
All four corses were delicious creative and a treat for the pallet. Dessert was equally delicious.
The service is attentive without being oppressive or intrusive.
The atmosphere is elegant and dining here transports us to Europe every time !!!
Absolutely Outstanding in every way!!! Would go back again and again for any special occasion! We felt very taken care of...the food was sublime as was the wine and service. The ambiance was particularly beautiful as well. It made a special occasion even more so! Thanks to all the staff for their professional and caring service!
Amazing food... as always! Beautiful restaurant. Looking forward to it's new restaurant just across the street.
Amazing birthday dinner. Every dish was outstanding and delicious and prepared beautifully
Excellent service, to complement an incredible meal. Recommend the lamb.
Lovely atmosphere, gracious staff, delicious tasty, food
Wow! What an experience! The food and service were top notch! We will be back!
Best food experience you could ask for—all around.
Anniversary but have eaten there before and always enjoyed very much
It had been some time since I dined at Cafe Monarch-the restaurant was a Ross the street. We were greeted by a lovely fountain and a very different look and feel than the original. Absolutely stunning. Professional and attentive staff. The salmon crudo was my favorite. Although I enjoyed my filet ... I wouldn’t get it again. That’s what Steak 44 or City Hall is for... My husband had the lamb and was wonderful. A surprise dessert came at the end to help celebrate my birthday-very nice. It isn’t every day dining - and intimidating for a first date. Special occasion only
