Café Monarch Ratings and Reviews
Excellent. My husband and I thought it was a little expensive but worth the money. My husband said it was the best meal he's had in Phoenix. We happened to go on a cooler night in May and the outside patio table was perfect. They even gave me a little Mother's Day gift at the end of the night.
Outside seating next to a waterfall and the flowers I requested was ideal. The food was very special. Not rushed at all. Service was outstanding and helpful. Most important the dinner was far above what I expected. This is our new special occasion place for dining. Well worth the cost.
We requested to be seated outside on the patio. My reservation was made about a month ahead, but we could not be accommodated. This was extremely disappointing as the inside table was small and in a corner, not much to be excited about. The food was good but this is a VERY expensive restaurant. Would not recommend this for the price and ambiance indoors not attractive. We were celebrating a big birthday and it was a disappointing night.
Everything was great, except the timing of the courses and drinks. We couldn't finish our cocktails before they place the white wine next to them. On a warm evening like last Friday the wine will not stay cool for that long. The meat course came before the red wine was served and then the last white wine came too early again. That time we asked the waiter to take it back and wait, which he did.
Small problem that can be solved for future guests.
My wife always researches our trips using Trip Advisor and this time was no exception. This trip to Scottsdale was to celebrate our Anniversary. She chose Café Monarch for our Anniversary night Dinner from doing her typical research. She could not have chosen a better venue. The outside eating area was remindful of some of our European dinners. We had excellent service and the food was outstanding. We both highly recommend this restaurant.
This was a complete experience, from the setting, food, and service. Each cousrse was full of flavor, and the portions just enough, not over or under filling. As a result, we will certainly return, and bring guests, who will appreciate the tasteful, and relaxing setting, and would expect that they will in return, do the same.
Cafe Monarch has been our favorite for a couple of years now. The service is very attentive, they know their wines, and never miss a details. When each course arrives, they describe each item in detail and it looks like art on a plate, then the flavor is even better. Best restaurant in the valley!!
Fabulous dining experience.....four course gourmet food presented in an unbelievable display of color on each plate. The filet mignon was grilled to perfection and the pork chops were very moist!! The waiter was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and the attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Although this time we were gifted by our adult kids, we will definitely be back at least once a year to celebrate another special occasion! What a wonderful two hour leisurely romantic adventure! It is not to be missed!!!
This was our first time at Cafe Monarch and we were extremely impressed with the food, excellent service and ambiance. It lived up to all the great reviews and more. Had a wonderful wine selection. We brought friends who were visiting from Miami and they were equally impressed!
Everything about the restaurant was wonderful. We liked the outdoor patio area, champagne when we arrived and the sparkler dessert at the end for our anniversary. If I have one comment it is that by the time my entree came it was so dark, I could not see what I was eating. The menu listed many ingredients which I liked but had to blindly taste test. We will return for a special occasion.
The most incredible restaurant I have ever been to. The ambiance is magical and the cuisine is consistently 5=star plus !!! The staff are so professional and so nice and the owner could not be more attentive and always making sure he remembers you. This restaurant is a true find.
