Loved this place when it 1st opened. Servers are pretentious- annoyingly so. Food good enough, but not worth the uncomfortableness of the servers and atmosphere. Pretty restaurant,pricey.

Although we haven't dined here since the renovation/menu change, we loved it before, really enjoyed the bar area and have heard nothing but good things about the changes made by the newer chef. Can hardly wait to give it a try!

We enjoyed cocktails and wine, great salad, excellent steak at a reasonable price. Service excellent and almost invisible. Good wine list. Excellent filet. Advertises as New Orleans style but really was American without strong spices and peppers. We'll go again!

What happened to the good quality food? You really let us down Monarch. For a Saturday night this place was almost empty. The news must be out that you are overpriced and serving unacceptable almost food. The skate fish was burning with salt and the...More

When I used to live in Saint Louis, I went with my mother to Monarch when they had their old menu. Since the menu changed (more New Orleans type fare), I have been here twice while visiting my hometown. I came in April with 4...More
