It was a 4 course prefix dinner which was perfect in every way. This is a small restaurant with waiters who try and succeed in making your dining experience memorable. Yes, it is expensive which makes it a destination when you are looking for something out of the ordinary & very special. It is difficult to describe every single course... More

This place is quite the luxury experience. Delicious courses that are changes weekly are sure to be fresh and flavorful. The cauliflower soup, shrimp stack, and salad with corn are DELICIOUS. The strawberry cheesecake is to die for, Oreo crust with a side of strawberry ice cream-perfect. The gnocchi was also delicate spicy and superb. Great overall!

Horrible!!!!!!! Will NEVER eats at this pretentious restaurant again. Made reservations for Valentine's Day. Received a call back today from some woman demanding a credit card to hold the reservation. Was told that they would be charging $150 per head. If we cancelled anytime before our reservations we would be charged $50 per head. When I made the reservations originally,... More

My husband and I have eaten at many fine places. This restaurant is our favorite with Kai being second. We have recently celebrated several special occasions here. The intimate ambience in the courtyard, the wonderful wait staff, (Kevin, we love you!), the fabulous, beautifully presented, savory dishes all contribute to a very special experience. The seasonal menu is adjusted weekly.... More

This review is late in writing. I visited Monarch cafe a few years ago for a date night with the than girlfriend. Monarch is so much more than a great restaurant with amazing food and great service. Monarch cafe is the type of place that transports you to a hidden garden. Do yourself a favor and try it if you... More

The most romantic patio in town. Food is creative and well presented and the service is unaffected, professional and friendly. No guarantee you will receive patio seating even with a reservation unless you wait.

We flew into Scottsdale from Ohio to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary (and to get away from the cold weather). I researched an appropriate location for the celebration and EVERY expectation was met. The evening was magic! We were met and seated at an excellent table where champagne was immediately served. The interior is excellent and very conducive for a... More

We had dinner for 3 here on December 30 before the Fiesta bowl. It was raining and this sent the place into a whirlwind. They recovered admirably. The fixed price meal is overwhelming and excellent. I had the filet and it was as good as anywhere I have ever eaten. Our service was excellent but the atmosphere I not real... More

Monarch's lovely location nestled off a quiet street in Scottsdale was new to us and we were pleased they had a large parking area in front of the restaurant. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. We were escorted to a garden dining area beautifully laid out. Service was excellent if not a teeny weeny bit cloying. Food was nicely prepared... More
