Love love love! This place is beautiful, the food was outstanding. All the employees were so nice and professional. The chef send out multiple things to taste and they gave us champagne (on the house) because we were celebrating a birthday. Overall spectacular I can’t wait to come back.
Above and beyond. Truly fantastic meal. Danny is the man! Cocktails on point and table side Steak Diane was amazing
Amazing meal with a few extra special touches- everyone was sooo accommodating and we will definitely be back again. Everything was perfect! Chad, Chad and manager Dan were on top of their game all nite long. So nice to see people who take pride in great service!!
The food was pretty good except
for the shrimp cocktail.
The overall dining experience was awesome. Food was amazing. Server was very experienced and attentive. Ambience was very nice and calming. They even gave us each a small bag with a slice of crumb cake to take with us when we left. I highly recommend this restaurant
The presentation, quality of beef and fish was exceptional. The braised short ribs were rich in flavor and substance and delicious.
Other table guests enjoyed Salmon and Sea Bass and felt the quality and flavor was exceptional and the best flavor ever.
This place is incredible best chophouse I have been to so far
Everyone down to the bartender to the server was top notch professionals
Make sure you see Tyler the bartender super funny guy
We had an amazing dinner on October 20, 2021. We ended up here because it was perhaps the only steakhouse in town where there wasn't a 21+ age requirement. We were here with our small children, ages 4 and 6. The bartender was so sweet and made them specialty drinks when we first arrived. The maitre d' was so friendly to our kids and everyone acknowledged her birthday. (We didn't go there for her birthday on purpose--it just ended up that way!) They gave her a special dessert. The food was excellent -- we had the filet mignon, asparagus, the NY Strip Steak, table-side gelato, and creme brulee. We would honestly return to Black Hawk to stay at the Monarch and eat at the Monarch Chophouse again. It was a beautiful experience!
Great birthday dinner with complimentary glass of champagne. The rack of lamb was fabulous!
We have dined here once before and that is why we came back. The food was excellent and the staff was very pleasant and helpful.
Excellent staff, from arrival, our waiter and the Caeser Salad made tableside. The food is excellent except for my chicken - it was so tough I could barely cut it with my knife. I would have said something but I was there for a birthday celebration and didn't want to cause any problem. I definitely will go back - just won't order the chicken.
Great experience expensive but worth it. Will come again.
For our 5th Anniversary. I have dined at every fine restaurant in the metro area and have never had food this delicious, hands down. Our server Chad was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the food selections. We are going back soon!
Excellent service and very good food, it was great to find a fine dining restaurant.
We had reservations and went to the desk to check in. We waited 20+ minutes and nobody seated us. The hostess and 2 guys who worked there just hung out at the bar and watched us as we waited to be helped. So we left and had a wonderful dinner at the buffet.
Staff was friendly and accommodating. They never stopped moving. Very attentive but not overly intrusive. Food was very well prepared. A couple of quirky options, like smoked whiskey and Caesar salad from scratch table side were really fun. Great experience.
We are always treated as very special guests. Food is always of the highets quality (the salmon is the best in Blackhawk)
We would definitely return. Great food and service.
Great food, service & atmosphere! This was my third time to eat here & I will definitely plan on it again.
Delicious food. Outstanding service. The quality of the food being offered is unmatched
Awesome dining experience. This is our 2nd time eating there and I highly recommend it! Delicious food from start to finish. The staff was wonderful and very attentive! Looking forward to returning as soon as we can. One of our favorite places to dine! Well done Monarch Chophouse!!
We loved the Monarch Chophouse. The ambiance, food, and service were all exceptional. Our server, Chad, food runner Eric, and all other support staff were outstanding. The only thing that was missing was a manager checking in with us, where we would have communicated that we had pleasurable experience.
EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLANT!! GREAT FOOD GREAT SERVICE!
Ambiance is fantastic, especially in the side room. Very quiet and cozy with the fireplace. Our server was great. My steak was overdone and it was the thinnest filet mignon I’ve ever seen. It looked more like a hamburger patty.
Absolutely outstanding food, phenomenal staff. One of the best dining experience I’ve had.
We celebrated my mother’s and my boyfriend’s birthdays, and received a personalized five-star service! The Steak Diane, risotto and asparagus were perfectly cooked and delicious! Thank you for an incredible dining experience and birthday celebration!
This was an amazing experience for our anniversary! They made us feel so special on a meal we splurged on, not able to do this very often. Thank you! It is something I will never forget!
Great food. Best service in town. Looking forward for the next time
Best caesar salad ever! Food is great never disappoints!
Our first visit there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect. Will go back there again.
Our dining experience at Monarch was well worth the trip. The service was to be complimented. The soup of the day was a Butternut Squash creation & was excellent! Steak was prepared to a perfect Medium & the Bison short ribs were a huge plate & could be shared. We were even given an after dinner treat!
Everything was cooked perfectly and the presentation was amazing. We also received exceptional service.
Food was excellent. No sommelier. Although the server was able to recommend a bottle after consulting with another employee.
The consistency in the way the staff treated guests is the main reason for the low scores. My husband and myself will not be eating here again
We went for our 25th wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was beautiful and romantic as we sat next to the fireplace. Staff was wonderful, food was so delicious. Highly recommend the cheese tray appetizer, plenty for two. I had the pork chops, so tender and my husband had chicken. FYI the chicken was a little pink in the center but the waitress said it’s only because it’s smoked and that’s what happens. Unfortunately my husband couldn’t finish it, he is that way with chicken, it has to look fully cooked, don’t blame him though. Other than that we give it a 10/10. Oh, and the lobster Mac n Cheese, delicious!
We were very excited to eat at the chophouse again as we have dined here before for a birthday and it was absolutely incredible
As a culinary professional I appreciate the fine dining atmosphere and cuisine
However, this visit to the chophouse did not meet our expectations.
The cocktails, appetizer and chop salad were very good, but unfortunately our main dishes were just not up to standard
The short rib dish and salmon were cold. The marrow with the short rib should come out very hot, almost sizzling and I would have liked grilled toast with the marrow
The brusselsprouts were way over cooked and drowning in sauce which took away from the crispy texture of brusselsprouts
I am not trying to rip this place apart or anything, maybe the kitchen had an off night, as an experienced chef and culinarian, I only want to offer suggestions for next time
The manager was very nice and took care of our entrees and provided a dessert which was appreciated, but it seemed like our server was displeased with us voicing our concerns
One of the absolute best places I have ever eaten! the food was phenomenal, the service was superb and the overall experience was perfect :)
Service is impeccable, food is always consistent and service is always great!! Compliments to the Chef and his staff and all the servers.
Great food! Service was awesome! Overall great experience!
