    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

Go for happy hour, see the sunset @ the bar, then have dinner @ your table. We started out with the seafood tower($35) at Happy Hour, and finished with the bread pudding @ our table for dessert.

    Best restaurant in Dallas. Outstanding food, service and ambience. What a view. 1st class all the way. Not for families or those who want a quick meal or don’t appreciate fine dining. This is for those who like to drink their wine slow, savor it w the food, and appreciate quality done right. Oh, and bread crumbs cleared as plates are exchanged, wine glass never empty without seeing them coming, no interruptions of conversations, etc.

    Great experience, the food was amazing, good quality-prince. Except they made us wait for an hour to get a table although we did have a reservation. The service was great. Would definitely recommend.

    I think we’ll have to make Monarch a Christmas night tradition! The food and service wrre amazing and the city view from the 49th floor was exceptional, the Christmas lights and Nutcracker displays were beautiful.

    Impeccable service! Thank you to our wait staff, especially Paul, for his outstanding commitment to attend to us. Food was exceptional and ambiance was stunning! The Monarch Old-Fashioned (at $200) was a curiosity, but I did not splurge so cannot give an accurate review for this. Lovely evening!
    MonarchResponded on December 19, 2023
    Thank you! We'll be sure to pass your compliments along to Paul and the team. It's great to hear you found their service, food, and ambiance so enjoyable. We hope you'll be back someday soon, and if you try our signature Old-Fashioned, please let us know what you think!

    If you are seeking an upscale restaurant with outstanding food, beverages, and service, Monarch is the place. Romantic, festive, and lively describe the atmosphere at Monarch. Gentlemen, I recommend you wear a dinner or sports jacket when attending. One of the best dining experiences I have had in the Dallas area. Cheers!

    The food was good but the waiter took our food away even though we said we are still working on it.

    My mom and I dined here for a lovely dinner before a ballet performance. Everything about our food and service from our excellent server James was magnificent, however the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. That is my one and only disappointment, but everything else was exceptional and we will be returning again!
    MonarchResponded on December 14, 2023
    We sincerely appreciate you sharing your recent dining experience with us and are delighted to hear that you and your mom had a lovely dinner before the ballet.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon for another exceptional visit, and next time, please request a table that will be quieter. Thank you!

    Server was great, but the bussers were like ninjas stealing food and drinks that I was still drinking and eating. Felt very rushed. Oysters were small for $48 but they have been small everywhere. Steak and ravioli was really good and so was the rest of the food. They put my wife’s name and “Happy Birthday” on the menu which was a nice touch. Good experience overall, place is beautiful.
    MonarchResponded on December 7, 2023
    Thank you for celebrating your wife's birthday with us. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our food, but we apologize if you felt rushed by our bussers. We know how frustrating that can be, and we'll address this internally to ensure it doesn't happen again. We hope to welcome you back soon for another great experience.
