    Started with a very well made drink from their fully stocked bar. Then to our table for a very well prepared meal with great presentation. Love the atmosphere and yet again our server was great. Friendly and very attentive. Always love Monarch.

    Food was okay. Both my husband and I thought our fries were a bit salty. The calamari app was good as was the lobster bisque. Service was a little lacking. We were there on a week night and had to ask repeatedly for drink refills.

    All 4 of us said our meals we absolutely delicious. Wait staff was very knowledgeable and helpful with ordering. Every single person in the restaurant greeted us cheerfully and said goodbye as we left. The manager asked how our meal was and genuinely cared how our experience was after we finished our meal. I also noticed all staff watched each other’s tables and if plates needed to be cleared they would do it fit their co workers. I will tell everyone I know that we had a wonderful evening.

    A hidden gem. Good service, excellent food and a nice vibe in this restaurant located at the Hotel Deco. Prices are very reasonable, given what other downtown and hotel-grade establishments in the area charge. The menu is somewhat limited, but all the bases are covered. Worth a visit!

    Beautiful restaurant but my steak was poorly done. Vegetables were great, but if I'm paying almost $50 for a steak, it shouldn't have been overdone and full of gristle.

    They were definitely understaffed. The waiter was nonstop moving but he could never really catch up (he did fabulous for what he was working with). It took 20 minutes to get drinks and we didn't have our dinner until 90 minutes in. There was a wedding next door and that was our music which was loud. The ambiance was super cool totally has an Alice In Wonderland vibe. The steak was subpar wehn compared to a Mahogany steak that would have cost the same. The burger, fries, and Gouda potatoes were AMAZING!!! For the price vs service level, I don't think we'd go back but we enjoyed ourselves overall.

    Wonderful food. We eat whole food plant based and there were several options we could enjoy. We had bruschetta and gazpacho and both were just wonderful. Our waiter gave us lots of friendly but not overbearing attention. We ate pretty early and enjoyed the music. We are definitely planning to go back.

    We have been to Monarch before and loved it. This time, not so much. We were handed a wine list with about 6 red wines listed. I asked for their by the bottle list and was told that was it. I asked why a fine dining restaurant had such a limited list, with no outstanding wines, and was told there was a lot of wine in the cellar but the 3 owners need to go down and sort it out and hadn’t done it. That seems a bit ridiculous! One of our friends ordered a glass of White Haven Sauvignon Blanc, which she regularly has, and the taste was off. Her husband tasted it and said the same. When our server was told it either wasn’t White Haven or it wasn’t good, he argued with her about it. Very odd. She finally handed the glass to him and said she wanted a different white (can’t remember which one) so he did bring a different glass of wine. Our food was delicious - risotto was wonderful and the salmon and steak and frites were also a hit. We also enjoyed dessert. We all agreed we probably would not return. We love fine dining and good wine and we’re happy to pay $$$ for a good experience but this was less than fabulous.

    The bartender was slow to make our drinks. They were both two ingredient drinks that came out after our appetizers. And we overheard that he insulted another couple’s drink order. The glassware was basic. A $13 cocktail in an Art Deco restaurant should have pretty coupes to match the period. My mule came in a juice glass. The appetizers were okay. Brussels were tough. Disappointed that the menu online did not match the menu in the restaurant. Seasonal changes make sense, but it should be reflected in the online menu. One of the reasons I chose to go to Monarch last night was for a dish that was no longer available. Had I known, I might’ve spent my ONLY night out somewhere else. All that said… the entrees tasted great! We both cleared our plates of everything. I will trying to copycat their halibut dish! It was an alright date, but next time I drive across town I’ll probably choose somewhere else. Decent value for a special occasion: 2 apps, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, 6 drinks ~ $200

    The food was good. We had the 1/2 Charcuterie and cheese board, Steak Frites, and Island Salmon. Overall seemed overpriced for the value. The steak to frites ratio was subpar and parts were over cooked. Service was pretty slow for not so big of a space, lacking a formal introduction consisting of a welcome, waitress’s name, and forgot to supply the drink menu. We grabbed drinks at the bar prior to our dinner reservation and unfortunately I was double charged for our two drinks, which one was made with Admiral Nelson when we requested captain Morgan. Saving grace was the ambiance and taste of the food.
