Took my husband there for his birthday celebration. We arrived early and ordered a cocktail and sat on their front patio. It was lovely and I am glad we got there early to enjoy this spot. Our table was a cozy table in the outside courtyard. The menu is fixed except for the main entree. The three courses leading up... More

When we arrived our waiter told us that each course would leave us eager for the next. Well, he was indeed correct. Each course was delicious and the entire experience made us wake up today thinking..."maybe we should return to Scottsdale sooner than later". Thank you to the entire waitstaff for a pleasant evening and the birthday surprise🎉

We visited Monarch on a recent girls trip to Scottsdale and were beyond impressed! The setting is beautiful, the food is amazing, and the service and staff are top-notch and so fun! We had a few dietary restrictions in our party, and they were so lovely about accommodating our needs while still ensuring that everyone enjoyed a delicious and special... More

Wow, what a find! This restaurant is one of the best in Scottsdale, if not the best. Meal was a multi course perfection. Great destination for both foodies and just those looking for great food and value for the price. Menu changes daily and is fresh and locally sourced.

We enjoyed a wonderful night at Cafe Monarch. The four course dinner was delicious, the ambiance romantic and relaxed and the service was excellent. I hope we can return soon!

The prototypical special event restaurant. Too expensive to come all the time but worth it for those special events.

I'm not sure how we have missed this place for the 3 or so years it's been open but I'm glad we finally found it. It's in a small house like some of the other restaurants in the area (house brassiere etc.) which is always a very special atmosphere. The menu is semi fixed with one soup, one salad, an... More

We celebrated my husband's and his daughter's birthdays here with all the family. Absolutely marvelous! Beyond beautiful setting with candles, side table settings reminiscent of France and the outdoor patio was ultra charming. Each course was better than the one before. They even give the birthday celebrants a gift to take home. Worth the price, if you're in doubt.
