    They were out of a few things on the menu but, the service was great! Love the new location, the food was excellent and I will be back! I would warn your visitors about the parking situation as the signs are posted incorrectly and are extremely misleading. Hopefully my friend gets her money back and has the city change the signs.

    Failed to meet expectations given recommendations received. I had the “famous” fried chicken and felt it was over seasoned and dry.Mac n Cheese was underwhelming also and biscuit was dry. Brussels sprouts were the best part of the meal.

    We went to the Monroe before a show at the Dr. Philiips center and it was fantastic. Took our kids who also loved it. Fried chicken is the best and a great cocktail menu as well. We will be back soon.

    We visited for our first time because we were going to see Hamilton at the Dr. Phillips Center. We ended up there because it was actually one of the few restaurants that was open on a Tuesday. We were blown away with the ambiance, food selection and quality and price!! The service was excellent as well.

I’m asking for James every time i come to the Monroe from now on!! :) And his brother at the bar made me a yummy cocktail too!! Delicious. Will def be back soon!

    Nice environment, great service. Food was good, not great and pricey, but we knew that before making our reservation. Similar to the company’s Osprey restaurant, it has a small entree menu, which doesn’t encourage frequent visits.

    Overall my experience was okay. We got the St. Louis ribs as our appetizer and it was amazing. For our entree, we ordered the fried chicken, and you can imagine our confusion when our waitress brought out chicken tenders instead. Apparently the kitchen ran out of the fried chicken so they substituted for chicken tenders instead, which I would have been more okay with had our waitress let us know they ran out. She didn't tell us they ran out and had we known we would have ordered something different. I did try the tenders though because there wasn't anything else on the menu I really wanted, and they were pretty unseasoned and a bit dry.

    Booked a table rather quickly on a Thursday night. We were from out of town and headed to a concert. When we walked in, I was struck by how nice the place looked. There was obviously some thought out into the decor. The other thing that struck me was the volume of the noise. This place is loud. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. There is a nice bar that does have some high end spirits. I had a Monkey 47 gin and tonic, which is not a brand you find in most places. The menu is comparatively small, but we’ll thought out. For apps, we had the pork belly and the frito pie. Good southern staples. Both were very good. I had the Orlando Hot Chicken sandwich. Obviously a take on a Memphis dish, but with a little twist. The chicken was perfectly crunchy and juicy. The sauce was very good and the fries that came on the side were done very well. Not extremely pricey either. A full meal for four was right at $200. Not bad for a dinner and drinks in a new, upscale place. Overall, I would eat there again.
