    Had a 45 min wait with a reservation, the entertainment & my server (CJ) was great but the food had zero flavor. Everything is extremely over priced. Paid $20 for a shot of casamigos

    Our steak was raw we paid 150 for the tomahawk that I have made many times and there was no way it was 30 ounces. Are waiter was so good I actually felt bad for him he knew our steak was raw we sent it back to be cooked but came out still to rare I ordered medium rare we couldn’t eat it. We are not the type of people who complained so we just paid our bill and left. I literally had a reservation at montons but I saw you had the dry aged tomahawk which was all we wanted. I read reviews and I saw a complaint about a raw steak but I just figured that person was picky cause I couldn’t imagine how a restaurant could mess up a steak it is the easiest thing to make. And there was no way that steak was dry aged it was so tough. I wish I never went there I have never wrote a review for a restaurant but I may have to broil would feel terrible for someone else to get raw tough beef. The restaurant was wonderful and everyone working was wonderful as well just wish my steak was good. I wish I took a picture

    Took my wife for her birthday and we truly enjoyed ourselves! The food came quick but was delicious. The drinks were very tasty as well. The decor along with the candle lit tables really set the mood. There was a just singer performing as well. The only issue I had was that online it gives an address around the block for valet when in fact it’s the same as the restaurant. After 4 unanswered calls to the restaurant while I waited in my car nervous I would miss my reservation I was finally informed of this. Overall, we had a lovely time and would go back!

    We had an excellent experience at Monarque! We had requested a table close to the stage and we were right next to it. The performances were impressive and fun and our food and drinks were all delicious. Our server Christian was very attentive. It is quite expensive, but I think it’s worth it for the experience. We will definitely be back!

    My friend and I went to the Monarque to celebrate a few of our recent milestones, and we were pleasantly surprised. We expected the food to be good and a decent ambiance, but we were blown away. The food was fantastic, from the appetizers to the entrees, and the Monarch's selection of cocktails was also fantastic. In addition to the food and drinks, the live show was enjoyable and added to a night of great food and great company. I will certainly be back again soon, and my friend was so happy she would like to visit weekly.

Great portion sizes along with amazing cuts of steak. We were very happy to be there. The Friday night show was excellent as usual, always a great time with Monarque after dark. We will be happy to share our experience with friends and go again soon.

    Tables were too small for 2 people to have a full dinner and drinks. For the price of the food you should have larger tables especially when a reservation is made.

    Entire night was perfect, the restaurant handed my date a birthday note upon arrival, a tasteful touch. The ambiance was amazing, bringing my date & I back to that golden 1920’s era. The lighting & the vibe set the tone for the night. The band playing was great, tunes went perfectly w our food. We tried the black truffle cheese mouillette along side a half dozen oysters, the flavors in the cheese bread were unmatched, & the side of ham added the perfect touch! Then for drinks we started w nouveau Riche which had a very refreshing element to it, the Chai infused brought forward all the flavors. Moving on to our entrees, Chris was an amazing server, explaining each dish tactfully and thoroughly. We went w the Poêle and the American wagyu, garnished w the blue cheese crust. Each dish left a statement, compared to none. To add, the mac & cheese & gratin potatoes were a great accompaniment w our entrees! To top off dinner, we finished w the French 75 (cognac) & the strawberry vanilla sorbet and I must say, that was quiet delectable, drink and dessert. Overall, amazing night, amazing location, would definitely recommend for special occasions.

    We had such a great time and an amazing experience. We arrived early for our reservation and sat at the bar to wait. The bartender working on server orders acknowledged us and took our drink orders. We were blown away by the customer service and attention even though they were continuously slammed. The wait staff, bartenders, managers and bussers all worked together as a team and everyone pulled their wait and chipped in when a teammate needed help. We enjoyed the cabaret show during our dinner and would return again for another occasion.

    If you want great food and a show in Baltimore, this is a great option. A beautiful brasserie, Monarque feels like another place in time. The music does get loud, so if you're looking to converse at the table much, this is probably not the best venue.

    Nice, classy restaurant. The atmosphere is grown up and sexy. It feels like a gentlemen's lounge. The food is average. They have entertainment later at night. It is great to hear live jazz, while eating your meal. The burlesque dancers are also a treat during late hours.

We went all out for date night and ordered the seafood tower, tomahawk with the black truffle butter recommendation was perfection, & to end the night we enjoyed the passion fruit soufflé dessert. Couldn’t of asked for a better way to spend the evening.

    Food was amazing. Wait staff was awesome. The show was nice just hard to see with so many people in the way and how the tables are set up. Was our anniversary and did not feel like an anniversary special anything. Seating across the table was pretty far and the noise level made it hard to hear. The show and performers were great for what we could see. But the wait staff in the isles and next to tables made for a obstructed view most of the time. Had a good time, and food was amazing. Not sure when booking online they get the information of the special occasion communicated back to the restaurant.

    Been here twice, 1st time was packed understandably because the atmosphere and entertainment is great! Its a real adult date nite, speakeasy old times charm and sexy ambiance. I came back the 2nd time because the food was phenomenal at our first visit, this time the food was still delicious! Highly recommend making a reservation and requesting up front seating. If you like absinthe, go to the bar absinthe service with the drip.
