We came to Monarch to celebrate a few things, but this place would be perfect even for a date night. The prefixed menu was phenomenal and better yet, customizable for one of us as a vegetarian. Service was attentive. The strawberry cheese cake was a perfect ending to the night.

There aren't enough stars to explain how absolutely superb our dining experience was!! Romantic, charming, superbly styled! Excellent wait staff. You must have a reservation. On a busy night parking might be an issue, but I am certain they must have valet. We visited on a Thursday evening. Early reservation and was packed by the time we left. Has misters... More

We had a very nice time at this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated in the courtyard and the misters were on because it was a rather hot evening. Our meal was delicious but by the time I finished it, my hair was almost completely wet from the mist! The courtyard is beautiful but I would not suggest... More

We have vacationed all over the United States, Europe, Canada, and Mexico. Dining out is always a favorite part of the experience. How in the world did we miss such a gem right in our own backyard? Thank you Open Table for bringing this restaurant to our attention. We celebrated our anniversary there and what a delightful experience this was!... More

It was a special occasion and the Monarch made it very special. We at first were seated on the outdoor patio which on most occasions would have been great. A very large party was being seated and we asked for a more intimate table inside. The staff was so accommodating. We ordered a bottle of wine from their extensive collection... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make this a special night. From complementary glasses of Proseco to an amazing dessert it's no wonder that Monarch is the #1 restaurant in Phoenix. I can't imagine sharing our anniversary with anyone else.

Awesome special occasion reservation. Food is delicious and service excellent. Make reservations way ahead of time, and ask for an inside table if going in summer. Cons: vast majority of seating is in a beautiful, romantic outdoor area. Probably is amazing in spring and fall. But in summer, you can sweltering in 110 degree heat. Intolerable, and we live here...

My husband and I found ourselves in Scottsdale, AZ due to health issues and his attendance at the Mayo clinic. Our stay, which should have been just a few days turned into 10. We needed to find a place for our 38th anniversary dinner and we found this one. I didn't look at any other because of the all the... More

We ate here last night for the first time but not the last. If you live here you must go, if your visiting you must go. We ate in the courtyard which is reminiscent of a Tuscan patio. The food is a somewhat fixed menu that is so incredibly diverse. The food, the presentation and the overall experience was fabulous.... More
