What a beautiful setting in their patio. Very romantic. The food is very good, but not exceptional. But the setting and the staff really make it memorable. This is a special occasion place!

Hubby and I had heard great things about this restaurant so decided to give it a whirl for our 20th anniversary. It was absolutely delightful! We were seated on the lovely patio at twilight. It's still hot in Phoenix in August but with the misters running, it was comfortable and the patio is beautiful and romantic -- definitely one of... More

Excellent times 3 for the following reasons: 1. Excellent service. Our water glasses were always filled. Our napkins were folded when we returned to our table. We were asked many times how we liked our food. Our plates were cleared quickly. 2. Excellent food. It's a prix fixe meal with an appetizer, salad, choice of entree and choice of dessert.... More

We chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary here after reading the trip advisor reviews. We had not really focused on the fact that it was a four course set menu, but it was fantastic. The tuna tartare and filet mignon need special recognition as both these offerings were the best versions we have ever experienced. We sat outside in the... More

Every course was incredibly well done, attractive and the appropriate size. Each one TASTED GREAT...delicious, Isn't that the key when you go out. What more can you say. The menu was limited to four entrees. The other... More

Loved the atmosphere and the service was excellent. Dinner included, appetizer, salad, entree and dessert with coffee. If you're looking for that special date night or couples evening and don't mind spending a little extra, the Cafe Monarch is a lovely dining experience.

My husband and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at this little gem of a restaurant earlier this month. The menu changes often so check online for what is being served the week you are planning to go. We both enjoyed the corn chowder, salad and our steak and chicken entrées...both cooked to perfection. Strawberry crepes and an apple tart... More

This was our first time to Café Monarch, but it most certainly won't be our last! We selected it based on reviews on Trip Advisor...we were not disappointed! We both had the filet mignon...excellent. The chef agreed to personalize my husband's choice with a different presentation as he doesn't like squash or sweet potatoes. Some people might not like the... More
