Absolutely amazing night. The jazz band was great, they did an outstanding job with a mixer of lyrical songs and instrumentals. Would come again in a heartbeat, great service and food. Definitely on the louder side when the band is performing but never felt like you couldn’t hold a conversation. Drinks and food were delicious.

Really had a wonderful time. Great staff & entertainment. The food was incomparable. I don’t eat meat so i was really out of my depth at a steak house. The waitress recommended the sole and it was heavenly. I will definitely be coming back!

Absolutely fabulous restaurant. The cocktail menu and unique performances alone make this a great spot to celebrate with friends. Try the duck fries and escargot. Both are excellent.

My experience at Monarque was wonderful! The food was amazing in terms of presentation and quality. Our table was pre-bussed quickly between every course and our water glasses were never left empty. We waited about 30-45 minutes for dessert so it was taken off of our check. Other than that we had a great time! Live performance was a nice touch. Monarque is definitely a hidden gem. Atlas never misses!

This was a special occasion and I was willing to pay top dollar for a good steak. I ordered the Bone-in Delmonico and it was absolutely the best steak I have ever had. The only reservation was at 5:15, so we were too early for the show that started at 7:30.

Went on a double date with friends. Food was really good, I got the lamb chops, I tried my husband’s duck and it was very tasty; the rest of our party had the filet mignon (it was quite small) but that’s expected for French food. We missed the show due to our reservation time of 10pm. Can’t wait to be back again but this time with an earlier reservation. I was worried we would have a long wait due to the reviews I read of people waiting an hour to be seated with a reservation. We were seated within 10mins of arrival.

Birthday. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and I wanted to do something special and fun! We are both foodies so we are picky about restaurants. I read the good reviews and it was close to our hotel. So why not try it! We were pleasantly surprised. The steak was cooked very well and the atmosphere was fun and inviting! The server was very attentive and helpful with the menu. The entertainment was very tasteful and well done. Definitely a great find.

A unique baltimore experience. Be prepared to spend some $$$ but eat like a king and queen. Tuna tartare was out of this world and the dover sole was worth every penny. Enjoy!

What a spot. Dark and sensual Monarque is the date night of date nights. Delicious, high end dishes served alongside truly unique cocktails in an atmosphere you would expect to find in New Orleans. A 4 star meal, burlesque style. We will be returning.

Was disappointed. We love the Atlas group and all of their other restaurants so we wanted to try their new offering out. Waitress was busy flirting at the register. There was only 3 other clients there total. Food was very very average compared to the other Atlas restaurants. Will stick with other places. Ashame.

I was a first timer and booked a reservation last minute for a girlfriend and I. I got a 9:30 table for the 9 pm show but the hostess suggested coming early to ask about tables or to sit at the bar. lucky enough, there was FRONT ROW spot and we sat at 8:45! Food was amazing, may be the best filet I've ever had, and the show was excellent . i'd highly recommend this for a girls night OR romatic date night!

The food was incredible. Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly cooked. The drinks were delicious, and the cocktail menu was creative.

We were there for the Thursday Cirque Day, which was an entertaining accompaniment to the dinner. The performance happened through the dinning area and was broken up into small sections so there was still plenty of time to talk, eat, etc. and still enjoy the show.
