    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
