    Ok. a very good restaurant. Not on par with The Mansion but close. Happy Hour was a good deal. Two dollar oysters and good margaritas. What could be better? Our table was a window table The view was great. Our server was knowledgable and attentive. Service was very good. The food - also very good. The veal parmesan was the size of a hubcap. My wife had a filet mignon - once again excellent. The filet mignon was first class, as were the salads We had two salads witt both were superb. The not so good? The chocolate cake was uninspired. Avoid it. The tiramisu .was much better. The noise? Awful. There is a steady drumbeat heard in the rap music You”d think a low rider with 1000 watts was nearby. I mentioned it - our waiter said that manages did not care. This place needs some good jazz or classical or Sinatra in the background. Lastly. Ignore the dress code. Five roustabouts in jeans and tee shirts were next to us. They weee having a good time. I wished them well.These guys knew how to have fun!!!

    Amazing experience! Wagyu was delicious! Truffle whipped potatoes were amazing and the roasted carrots were the best I ever had. Drinks were strong! In a good way! They even gave me a personalized menu for my bday! My husband felt there wasn’t enough side options so I’ll say 9/10

    The food was good. Maybe not quite worth the prices. The restaurant was pretty loud. The wait staff was fairly inattentive for an upscale restaurant which was maybe the most disappointing part. Our waiter was a little hard to find when needed and didn’t stay on top of drink refills quickly enough or dessert menu service.

    I recently dined at Monarch in Dallas, Texas, and unfortunately, it was a disappointing experience from start to finish. The food was simply not worth the exorbitant prices they charge. Every dish seemed to suffer from an excessive amount of salt, leaving an unpleasant taste lingering in my mouth. To add insult to injury, their wine selection was severely overpriced. It felt like they were trying to squeeze every last dollar out of their customers without providing any value in return. As for the service, it was lackluster at best. Apart from our waiter, Stephen, who did his best to salvage the evening, the rest of the staff seemed disinterested and indifferent. Their attempts at being personable, elegant, and sophisticated fell flat, leaving a sour impression on what was supposed to be a special dining experience. Overall, I would not recommend Monarch to anyone looking for a memorable dining experience. Save your money and find a restaurant that values both quality food and exceptional service.

    Food was great. That is where my praise ends. Our server did the bare minimum and didn't want to be there; she was a complete joke. (I've worked in restaurants so I give a lot of grace.) She took forever in everything she did and I found her multiple times leaning against the wall doing nothing. There is ZERO view if you do not pay an asinine amount to get a window seat. The room was sterile and the exact opposite of what their website shows. That's because we booked through Open Table. Monarch even sent an email stating "For future visits, we invite you to use the Monarch Dallas direct reservation page. Booking through this page will ensure you have exclusive access to the best availability and all our exceptional experiences." So unless you book through them, you get to sit on the other side that is beautiful and exclusive.

    Our son recommended Monarch and had a wonderful experience. As he suggested, I booked a window seat for our anniversary, but upon arrival we were seated 10 mins late and in a booth, where our view was of the staff and customers walking past us. When I explained I had requested a window seat, our waiter told me it was a $125 deposit per person and had to be made on their website. I was hopeful the food would at least be more impressive and sadly, it was not. The lobster was ok, mashed potatoes was good, but the $35 dessert was not worth the price. My drink was a Lemon Drop and also not worth the $24. Valet is also not included. The manager did stop by after our dinner and offered us a window seat if we would dine with them again. Sadly, it was a very disappointing dinner and not worth $235.

    The experience starts with the idea initial messaging stating if you don’t show up you’ll be paying a $25/person late cancel fee that’s your introduction. Via text. Day prior you’re reminded of this again. Then comes the obligatory dress like gentlemen but women can wear what they want including a tube top and sneakers we don’t care, email. Arrival met with sparking rosé. However the sparkle Had left that wine hours before my arrival. The trip to the 49th floor could have been enhanced by host staff. But was not. Arrival, on 49 resulted in a lot of pointing where one could wait for their reservation. There was no welcome or hey there are great views off to this side or anything. Then came the hard sell for cocktails While one was waiting. But alas order for cocktails was interrupted by table being ready. The happy occasion was a birthday. The waiter came to the table and thanked us for dining their before and for someone else’s special occasion. The maitre’D was summoned and they got it wrong a second time. It was Michael’s birthday. Not Micahel not Robyn. It was Michael’s birthday. The fact no one could get that right was the first thing that set the tone for this dinner. Two print outs later they had the man of the hour’s name on a menu. The first and second courses were served together as if we were being rushed through course one and two. The salad was served with the appetizer only one set of plates was given. Appalling to say the least. The pasta course was delivered while some one was in the restroom. They could have held the salad back and put new plates out. Apparently this person couldn’t be bothered to bring a second set of plates or allow time between appetizers and salad. So we were rushed. The meatballs were over cooked and burned on the outside. The waitstaff just picked up the dishea and we moved on The salad was for three. It was barely enough for one. The rest of the meal was passable but not outstan

    My husband and I went to, Monarch for our 10 year anniversary. We made reservations three weeks ahead of time and arrived about 10 to 15 minutes late and there were no issues at the door. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and staff happily took pictures to help capture our special day. Service was wonderful and the food was delicious. We ordered a steak, the chicken, asparagus, pasta and the meatballs as an appetizer. I had a chocolate martini and he had a glass of champagne. Our overall favorite food was the chicken. I Highly recommend going for a special day or any day you want a delicious meal. There were several other people there, who were casually dressed but overall, I’ll give it five stars. We will definitely be back.

    I was skeptical about a restaurant with all 5 star reviews… but after dining at Monarch I see why this spot has earned 5 stars from every reviewer. Food, service and ambience all amazing!! Go for a special occasion and you won’t regret it!

    Anna, we are thrilled that you enjoyed our food, service, and ambiance so much and that you had an amazing time here. Thank you for your wonderful comments. We hope to have the pleasure of serving you again soon.

    It was quite busy for a Sunday night. So much so that even with a reservation, we had to wait in the lounge (200mins) to be seated and waited even longer for our food to come to the table. After ordering drinks in the lounge, our table was ready and we had to wait another 10minutes for the young lady that took our order to come back and close our tab. It would have been much more efficient and convenient if they transferred the tab to our table. The music is not fitting for the restaurant. It is too upbeat and left me feeling as if I was in an action movie with Jason Statham somewhere fighting in the bathroom while chaos ensues in the kitchen. Maybe that’s why the food took so long and medium steak came out well done. Terrible, horrible, wall paper.

    A bit of a struggle to get a table with a view. But well worth it. Requires a down payment. Understandable when you see it. It’s amazing!

    Thank you for your patience if you had any difficulties getting the table. We're happy you enjoyed your visit so much, and we truly appreciate your wonderful review! We hope to see you back again someday in the near future!

    Each Michelin star is well deserved! Please go - you will NOT be disappointed! The Caesar salad and oyster were delicious. The spicy rigatoni is a must-have! And the bone in filet is incredible. We will definitely be going back!

    Not sure why the dress code is such a factor on the restaurant profile and even via text reminder when it clearly wasn’t enforced. Saw a bar menu catch itself on fire upon entering the restaurant. Our table was next to a fire exit for some reason and the table next to us was blocking the stairs. The other table next to us was told about specials and we were not. The “table focaccia” appeared to be a country white bread. The crudo was very good. The Brussels were mid. The bolognese was fine, the whole lobster spaghetti was lacking any noticeable flavor. Enjoyed the chocolate cake. Won’t be returning.
    MonarchResponded on February 22, 2024
    Jonathan, we appreciate your visit and your feedback. Please know our dress code is to support the celebratory environment of Monarch, and we do our best to ensure that all of our guests dress business casual or better. We apologize if you saw anyone who appeared to not follow our suggestions. We'd love to have a second chance to impress you, and next time you are in, if any dish isn't what you had hoped, please bring it to our attention so we can make you a new one or suggest others we're sure you will love. Thank you for the opportunity, and we hope you'll be back someday.

    Everyone was so welcoming! Ari the hostess gave such a friendly greeting/conversation as she walked us to our table. Amanda was running our drinks, she was very kind, fast, and friendly. Our server was amazing as well (forgot her name) but she did such a great job. She was very informative of the menu, attentive, and patient. Unfortunately we had to cut our dinner short, due to an emergency…..But everything was so beautiful 10/10 across the board from the food, drinks, ambiance, and service. The bathrooms also were very clean and smelled good! Which was also a plus (I love a clean restroom lol) We will definitely be returning…I do wish we got a window table but overall everything was amazing and we will for sure be back!

    My hubby and I celebrated our V-Day dinner here on Friday! I must say this restaurant is hands down one of the best 5star restaurants in the DFW area!! I’ve eaten at many upscale restaurants but Monarch is my new Favorite!! From valet to the complimentary wine before you take the elevator to the 49th floor was amazing. The food was delicious10/10!! Only issue we had was once we arrived to be seated I originally called to make reservations and advised the representative that we wanted “window seating “ However, after confirming our reservations we was not aware that the “window seating “ would be an extra charge of $125 each so upon arrival our host seated us at a regular table then made her aware that our reservations are for window seating. She immediately got with the head lead hostess name “Wiame” she then stated oh those seats are $125 each we can only seat you at a regular table. She said it in a really NASTY way as if we couldn’t afford it. I then tried to explain to her that we wasn’t aware of the additional charge and it wouldn’t be a problem for us to pay an additional $125 each “Wiame” then stated well those seats are already taken you can choose from these seats. I wasn’t feeling my best at the time due to my allergies. So we agreed to be seated at a regular table. Our waitress “Whitney” came over to get our drink orders I then asked to speak to the manager. The Manager came over and I explained to him what my husband and I had experienced with the head host. He apologized from there our night had gotten much better! He also sent over a complimentary salad which wasn’t necessary but very thoughtful. Our waitress was the best!! 10/10 service. Thanks Whitney!! We will most definitely be back! Hopefully our experience with the head host would be better. She was extremely rude for no reason.
    MonarchResponded on February 22, 2024
    Thank you for celebrating Valentine's Day dinner here with us. We truly appreciate your compliments on our food and service, but we apologize if you had an interaction with our host that wasn't ideal. We hope it was just a misunderstanding, but we will look into that and make sure it doesn't happen again. We also are sorry about the mix-up on your reservation. The $125 per person non-refundable fee is a deposit that will be applied to your dinner. It is not an additional charge. We will make sure that is clear to all in the future. We're so glad you ended up having a wonderful time regardless, and we look forward to having you back someday soon.

    If there are specific rules or prices on requests indicated in the notes in Open Table (I.e. requesting a window table) feel free to contact the client that there are extra charges for it. If the anniversary note is received and the client is contacted to confirm the names for the table piece. What would be the difference of notifying them that their request for a window table have extra charges? Not every client lives in Dallas to know the rules. Your staffs guidance was imperative and would had been appreciated. I also suggest to use one system (your own website or OpenTable) to take your reservations so you can capture all your clients requests. Even though we are disappointed we still tip our server graciously. She did treat us well. But you can’t take back that this is the worst anniversary we ever had all around the world. Not a way to celebrate our 18th anniversary. We don’t regret giving your restaurant a thumbs down.

    Order the Spicy Rigatoni pasta. It was delish. We loved our server Denise. She made great recommendations & had excellent service. The restaurant is located on the 49th floor of the building with an amazing view of downtown Dallas. The stair case is a beautiful attraction in the middle of the restaurant. Perfect spot for photos. It has a very luxe & romantic ambiance. I highly recommend.

    Have been wanting to come here for years and I chose to celebrate my birthday at the Monarch. They did not disappoint! As a former fine dining server/bartender of 10+ years I could not find one flaw in their steps of service, food, wait times, pace of dining, etc. it was PERFECT! Our sever was AMAZING! We will definitely be back! Thank you for making our experience so memorable!
