We were a group of friends visiting prague for the weekend and were recommended to visit Monarch by a friend. We had the most amazing time! We shared the USDA tasting platter for 4 people and had a Chateau neuf du Pape from 2007. The...Meat was perfectly cooked and probably some of the best we've ever had! The wine was perfect with the food. Out waiter Monica was a joy and made us feel so welcome! All in all a great experience that I could recommend to anyone!More

We shared a platter for 4 even though we only were 3 but we managed to get through it anyway. The prices are a bit expensive and the service was lacking. The food was great and the restaurant is nicely designed.

This nice steakhouse is perfect for an romantic night out. Rustique decor, fantastic steaks and an impressive collection of wine. Local too. The staff is extraordinary. It's somewhat pricey here, but you'll leave full and with a smile on your face.

Great meat, perfectly cooked. Beautiful place. The service could improve a lot and you will wait quite a long time for the dishes. You will ask for a starter and they will say they will bring it along with the main courses...I don't get this...at all...you will have to keep asking for them to bring it before, and they will look at you in a bad way...even if it's called STARTER in the menu and you asked for it in the first place cuz you are hungry and want it BEFORE the main dish...as it's done in a normal restaurant. In a normal circumstance I would give less stars since service is really a big part of the food experience, but the meat and point o cooking are really great, so I am giving it 4. I recommend the prawns with mango and chili chutney too...amazingly cooked prawns.More

We went there for the dinner and ordered both steaks both regular and aged. The taste of both were bland. The meat was too fatty ( a rib-eye) even if some "marbeling " was expected. They had a terrible selection of coctails ....When I was...about to pay, I wanted to tip them but was politely told that tip is already included... In Prague, it is not to be expected and they included a tip of 10%. It was quite rude to do so,...if I want to tip somebody, I will do it by myself... It is another tourist trap in Prague to be avoided ..More

Good choice of high quality meat from the USA. We tried aged steak for b the first time and it has been amazing. Service is kind and paying attention to customers. Location is cool with semi-visible kitchen. Price a bit higher than average
