One of the best meals that we have ever had--really. We sat on the lovely patio, draped with lights and lit with candles, for a really special (albeit expensive) dinner with wine pairings. In addition to the most flavorful food, the waiter was a highlight. His obvious passion for food and wine were a delight. We are here on vacation,... More

I very much hoped that Monarch would meet my expectations. But I thought that it went above and beyond. The service was excellent, very kind, and attentive service. And, the most important, the food. The perfect size portions make dinner more enjoyable, because you do not feel like you are ill after having a mere 2 courses. Everything had so... More

The ambiance and music sets the stage for delicious meal. Knowledgable staff who suggested a wonderful wine pairing for the entree. Pampered all evening.

Monarch is fine dining at its best. Everything at the restaurant is upscale. From the white linen table cloths to the furnishings throughout the restaurant. The service, food, and venue are all spectacular. We had the Sea Bass and it was Excellent. The wine and beer list are very very good and you'll be sure to find that fine wine... More

So let me set the scene. I am new to Scottsdale and it is my turn to book our annual Valentine's dinner. No room for error after 18 years of alternating the responsibility. My first idea - simply find the best rated restaurant in Scottsdale and make a reservation. YES - they have a table at 9pm (perfect for us... More

From the moment we arrived we felt pampered. We held hands a little tighter . Started with glasses of Champagne. Then we had the four course dinner and it was SUPERB. The wine pairing was out of this world, perfectly chosen for every course. My wife and I loved everything. The food was delicious. This place delivers HIgh end food,... More

My husband and I went to Monarch to celebrate Valentine's Day. Everything was orchestrated smoothly as we sat at a lovely cafe table and enjoyed cocktails while waiting for our table. Hostess was receptive, made eye contact and seated us in a lovely area. Our waiter was knowledge and accommodating. Reviewed menu in its entirety with a genuine smile! He... More

This was by far one of the best restaurants I have gone to in ages. The dining experience was a delight from top to bottom. The wine pairing was well worth the additional money. The quality of the winds are offered through the pairing was top notch. The menu was well thought out and served in a pairing style. Chris... More

the restaurant is beautiful the food fair at best and grossly overpriced. The service was good but almost overwhelming. Great spot for a romantic dinner. Wine flight/pairing overpriced for underwhelming selection.

Prepare to feast like royalty at the Monarch. The food, wine and decor are first class at this establishment. The waiter was also a sommelier so we had good context for the wines that were chosen for the price fixe dinner for pairing. As recommended in other posts my boyfriend and I chose the cauliflower soup. It's practically criminal. I... More
