We loved our dinner here; food was well prepared, familiar dishes with unusual twists, service as best as could hope for, wine mostly well pared. The patio was beautiful but we chose to sit inside which was also lovely, easy to hear each other. The menu changes weekly and I was relieved to see the week we went was as... More

We had a splendid dinner here, sitting in the back patio. A lovely prosecco to start and the waiter let us be a good long time, which was lovely not to be hurried. A trout pate was delicious with apple chutney. Then a lovely salad followed by one of the bets filet mignons ever -- cooked to perfection. Dessert was... More

Our experience at Cafe Monarch was extraordinaire. We choose the out door patio for our meal and the atmosphere outside is romatic, cozy, very relaxing and pleasant. We found the food extremely well prepared and well worth the money. If there's anything I can point out was the dessert since all previous courses set the bar pretty high. It was... More

I have not ranked this as one of the best meals I have ever had but as an overall dining experience it was excellent. It is a set menu apart from the main course but the balance was perfect and all the tastes merged together well. It has a lovely outdoor courtyard for dining but sadly the night we were... More

My Husband and I had a wonderfully romantic dinner at Cafe Monarch recently to celebrate my Birthday. This gem is tucked away on a street in Old Town Scottsdale and is so cute and inviting from the moment you pull up to the parking lot. Upon our arrival we were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside. Given... More

Love the quaint and Spanish looking decor. It made us feel like we were somewhere in Europe. The food was excellent, very flavorful. They serve a pre-fix menu with several options between meat/fish or vegetarian. I recommend this place for couples, to celebrate anniversaries or birthdays.

This place is four course prix fixe (a good value at $55). Creative, interesting menu. One dinner (only choice was fish or filet entree, the other 3 courses are set) runs for the week. So check out what's for dinner before you go. Lovely setting. Misters in the garden area kept it nice, even for this time of year, but... More

Had booked here a couple of times but something always came up. Finally made it and it was worth the it. I was here with my wife and two 20s sons. Awesome place - old house atmosphere with a great garden area out back. We sat inside beside a window looking out onto the garden. The menu changes so no... More
