Before we went to Monarch for her birthday celebration, we read a lot of reviews about Monarch and everyone is giving it a great rating and after our visit last night on Oct 22nd, 2016, the only thing we can say that is Monarch goes beyond our expectations. Since we are talking about the restaurant, foods are the no one... More

Monarch is truly and experience if you can afford it, do it. The ambiance of this place can not be beat. The outdoor dining was extraordinary and the food was spectacular. The wine pairing was fantastic as well but based on the price would not do that again. Service was over the top. Our server even ran to walgreens to... More

We enjoyed our meal but our server was a bit too formal and not engaging. He delivered information about the food and wine but was eager to leave. We did do the wine pairing which was very good. We had the cauliflower bisque, autumn salad and petrate sole. All were delicious and mine were prepared gluten free. We both had... More

Clearly this is a very nice place to go for a celebration, a beautiful outside patio, excellent service, good wine and drinks lists etc etc. But there are a number of issues to consider. 1. Its expensive at either $65 or $80 per person, no drinks plus plus etc and the portions are minute but well cooked and well presented.... More

We had an absolutely awesome dinner last night. The food was excellent and served so nicely. Be sure to try the clam chowder, the best we have ever had. We also ordered the macadamia crusted sea bass and it was delicious. We were celebrating our birthdays and it wAs just so special. The court yard was beautiful with many candles... More

Sitting outside in the candlelight, the sound of water from the fountain in the background, mellow music, twinkling fairy lights....absolutely the place for a romantic dinner for two. The staff are exceptional from arrival to departure, everyone from front desk to wine waiter. four course menu with choices of two starters and four main courses. Choice of selecting your own...

My husband and I along with our dear friends went to Monarch to celebrate my birthday. Upon entering the restaurant, you are warmly greeted by Christian (one of the restaurant owners) who will walk you into a magnificent courtyard and seat you at your table. Once you are in the courtyard, you tend to forget you are in Arizona due... More

From the warm hostess greeting through the dessert, service was impeccable. Friendly, helpful serving staff and delicious meal with excellent pacing. The outdoor patio was lovely and very relaxing. Highly recommend for any occasion.

We sat on the patio. It was on October 12, at 6 pm and it felt perfect, even though it was a high of 95 that day. The decor is so nice here. Really pretty!! The lighting is perfect. The music was nice and also not loud. Our server was so kind and made us feel comfortable. The food was... More

It's no wonder that this is #1 of 900+ restaurants in Scottsdale. My husband surprised me for my 64th birthday with a table in the magical garden. There's nothing left to say that others haven't already said here: ambience, service, menu, plating, presentation, everything was exquisite to the Nth degree. As a known birthday-boy, dessert was on the house and... More

Our intimate candlelit courtyard and romantic dining room are surrounded with vines, lanterns and bubbling fountains. The chef at Monarch is chef/owner Gus Lewkowicz and is family owned and operated.
