"The Zaza is a special place, and Monarch is a welcome restaurant at the hotel, whether staying there or not. With three distinct environments from the porch to the restaurant to the bar, there is an option for any group to gather.
Always a hit when I am in Houston."

"Not the best for brunch. The food and drinks are decent but I could go somewhere down the street for the same meal for half the price. Great service but you really just go here to go to experience Hotel ZaZa."

"First time there, so I didn't have any expectations. We were sat promptly, but it was about 40 minutes into before we were were able to order our starting drinks. Not to mention that we had to get the attention of the staff to make this so. Food was fantastic, but very overpriced after the fact."

"nice as a complement to real outdoor dining; having said that the food was too uneven, the duck breast outstanding but the short-ribs embarrassingly dry and tasteless in consideration of the price. Saltgrass Steakhouse gives a better value for the bucks spent.
Service was uninspired, the side orders came ten minutes after the main dishes, and only after we had to remind the server that sides were ordered ! The excuse: I have notified the manager who is looking into it, after that silence until the side orders were delivered without further excuse or explanation.
Because of the duck breast we may still go back for one more try to see if this was only a fluke, if it turns out it was not, then we would not go back again.

"The place was decent and is good probably for a quick bite. Not the best food I've had, but it was Christmas day and not many places were open so I decided to try this. Meh, is the best I could describe it as."

"This is my second time dining at Monarch. Both times food was disappointing. If I'm paying $30-40 per dish, it better tasty. And it wasn't. Service was ok too. Restaurant was half empty and waiter was not attentive at all.
I wouldn't eat there was if we were not staying at the hotel. Went there just for convenience.
Won't eat there again.

"Great night overall, we ate at the covered outside portion of the restaurant. The service was a bit slow and the server seemed to struggle to keep up with basic requests. Everything else was fantastic. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the side orders of spinach, fries, and mashed potatoes were great. The others who ordered the filet really like it.
Za lemonade is an all time favorite and a nice way to end the evening.

"I was staying at the Za Za and had dinner at the Monarch. Food was cooked perfectly. Service was attentitive even the manager came over and asked how everything was. Next time I would sit outside area which is screened off off for cooler days.
I had the duck with garlic mashed potatoes. Perfect place for buisness, with a date or a special occasion. Everyone was very accommodating."

"I had high expectations for our meal given all the good reviews on Open Table. We eat out at a lot of outstanding restaurants in town and the reviews here are usually pretty accurate.
Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The meal was very average...in fact, the New Zealand lamp lollipops which kicked off our meal, were especially unpleasant. We were told they would be served medium rare (yes, good and how it should be). All 3 were cooked differently. One was almost medium well, one was so rare it was inedible, the 3rd was about right. Did they even come from the same rack? The bed of something it was served on was an odd pairing. I tried the ahi tacos as well. Average to say the least. My daughter's expensive salad was also quite average. I almost didn't want to order entrees as I had such low expectations after the starters. I went with the market fish which had some of my favorite vegetables as sides. Again disappointed. The fish was dry and so bland that I didn't even want to eat it. I had to put on a lot of salt and pepper to make it taste somewhat decent. Very unusual for me. The Brussels sprouts and cauliflower weren't really cooked at all. Seemed more suitable for a ranch dip. My daughter got a chicken entree to go. She told me later it was also average.
On the plus side, it was a lovely patio, the drinks were tasty and the service was quite good. In fact, the manager made a point to ask about our meal and even comped the fish entree although I didn't ask him to do so. He also boxed up an entirely new entree and I ate it a couple days later. After sitting in the fridge for two days, it was still only so-so. But it was a nice attempt to rectify the situation."

"The food was excellent but we had to actually get up and request a waiter after sitting at the table for 20 minutes with no waiter even stopping buy. Then the waiter we got basically had no personality whatsoever. Had high expectations for the a very nice brunch event - but was a real miss for us - too bad because the food was quite excellent. Hopefully this was just an anomaly."
