All the excellent ratings must be relative to other local restaurants not on an industry wide scale. Mostly uninspiring presentation, above average food quality, attentive wait staff, wine selections a curious mix, must have been done by a local distributor. Wine glasses stored upside down on an unsealed cedar shelf so all wines had a cedar nose. Would I go... More

Our dining experience at the Monarch was 1 of the best we've ever had. We received a creative delicious meal with professional white glove level service (without the actual white gloves) in a romantic setting. Truly a memorable dining experience.

Always reliable for strong drink, properly cooked fish and old San Francisco ambience. No reservations policy and no valet parking so best to taxi/uber and taker time at the bar.

Not only is Monarch beautiful and romantic, the food and service are over the top in good way. It's an interesting concept that allows the best situation for the chefs to present perfectly prepared dishes. It is a semi-set tasting menu that gives you options for almost all of the courses. I assume the menu changes often. We had 2... More

This is rightly voted the best (TA) restaurant in Scottsdale. Up there with the best in Arizona in my opinion. The offerings are stunning so no need for me to make recommendations as everything is perfectly cooked and presented. Wine list is also excellent and the waiter was extremely knowledgeable as I struggled to choose between 3 different bottles. As... More

We had reservations for Monarch, which I would recommend as it is not that big of a place. I will say from the moment we walked up to the hostess center, our experience was wonderful. Everyone was so nice and friendly. We got the opportunity to eat in the outdoor patio, which truly is lovely and romantic. It does resemble... More

Monarch, in Scottsdale, Arizona, offers contemporary American cuisine in a fine dining, ultra-romantic setting. Located in Old Town Scottsdale, we offer guests a seasonal, chef-inspired 4-course prix fixe menu, which changes weekly. 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. DUE TO THE HIGH DEMAND FOR OUTDOOR SEATING WE CANNOT GUARANTEE OR RESERVE COURTYARD SEATING. WE WILL DO OUR VERY BEST TO ACCOMMODATE REQUESTS WHEN POSSIBLE. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!
