    The food was delicious. The lamb was cooked perfectly and was tender and well seasoned. The desserts were amazing and prefect for sharing (or not sharing too). The service was quick and very friendly. I will definitely be back.

    We waited 60minutes to get an appetizer. It finally arrived with our meal. On a good note my pork chop was really good. They must of been short staffed.

    This was our second meal at Monarch in which we had to rush eating our meal, due to their inability to honor time constraints (i.e. a show at the Orpheum). This last time, we arrived at 5:15 and we’re not served our meal until 6:15, and needed to leave at 6:30. The couple next to us had to cancel their order, as they were also not going to make their engagement. It’s too bad because the food is excellent and the restaurant has great ambience. Our waiter was nice enough, but the restaurant staff seem young and inexperienced. Also, a very limited wine/single malt scotch selection. Wish it was a better experience as it is so convenient to the Orpheum. But, this restaurant location has changed hands many times, and unfortunately has never been very well-managed.

    We had a great experience at Monarch!. Food, drinks, service and ambience were all excellent. We were greeted nicely and wished a happy anniversary. Our server Kyle was very knowledgeable, had a lovely sense of humour and timed everything perfectly. Food was creative and delicious! We enjoyed the charcuterie plate, beet salad with added salmon and steak and frites. All cooked as requested and arrived at the right temperature. Desserts were awesome - highly recommend the tiramisu and pot de crème. The chef also provided an extra treat in honour of our anniversary. A perfect evening in all respects!

    The food was good, the portions were small for the price. The wait staff that we had was inattentive. We were told he would come back to check if we wanted dessert, then didn't see him for 20 minutes. By that time we just got the check as we had to make our way to the Orpheum for the show. Our wait staff knew we were in town for the show. We were there for an hour and a half only being checked on 4 times. Being Sat, Ordering, Food Given, and check.

    The food was very good. Liked the wide range of entrees. Our server Steven provided the best service we’ve had. He was very knowledgeable and he had great suggestions. The blackberry old fashioned was one of the best cocktails I’ve had. Will definitely be going back when we attend shows at the Orpheum.

    We ate at Monarch before seeing a show and the food and service were wonderful. It was the perfect choice for a nice night out. We ordered the farmers market flatbread, olives and baguette, calamari, and steak + frites. Every bite was perfect! Our server (I wish I remembered his name) was very attentive without bothering us, and he made sure we were out in time for the show.

    The Monarch was the fanciest restaurant that my wife and I have ever dined at, and we loved every minute of it. From the moment the host seated us, to the food and wine recommendations by our waiter, to the melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness of the appetizers, entrees, and dessert, it was an unforgettably perfect meal.

    We put a comment on our reservation that is was our 7th wedding anniversary and felt we wanted to make it special and it was never acknowledged. The food was alright but felt for the value it was over priced.

    The food was exceptional, from the appetizers; a Spring Beet Salad and Charcuterie Board, to the Entrees; The Salmon, with Vin Blanc Sauce, the Halibut With Red Pepper Coulis, Mushroom Risotto with Steak Added, and the Sirloin, with Carrot Purée Turnips, Radish’s and fingerling potatoes. The service staff were able to make accommodations for my diabetic mother on a beverage for her birthday, and offer wine pairing for the each entree. I highly recommend this establish, and make sure to get dessert as well.

    We went for Mother’s Day breakfast. No kids’ menu. It wasn’t very busy but took awhile for food to arrive. A couple of the dishes weren’t even hot. The regular pancakes and eggs Benedict were not good. Had a mixed experience at dinner and after this experience won’t return.

    We arrived an hour and 15 minutes before needing to depart for a show and placed our order promptly, informing the waiter of our time schedule. Other diners arrived after us and received their meals before us. When our entrees finally arrived, we had 10 minutes to eat and rush out the door. I'm not sure the cause of this as the waiter had no explanation. For the money we spent, it was frustrating.

    The food and drinks were very good. The service was slow, which is understandable during these times… however, the manager was not jumping in to help as you would expect…there was one waiter in our room and he wasn’t really hustling… most diners (including us) had a theater show to get to and wound up feeling very rushed once our food came. There was a chunk of food on our table right where my plate would go and we had to ask for it to be cleaned… food very tasty… great house cab… the setting is nice, but quite noisy. Would recommend if you weren’t in a hurry, and not on a Sunday evening.

    We tried Monarch as a party of 4 on a Saturday night. The dining room was not too crowded and except for the bumping party in their event space, the ambiance was very nice for Omaha. Food was pretty good; the best thing our table ordered was likely the pork chop, which was 5 star.
