My Husband and I had a wonderfully romantic dinner at Cafe Monarch recently to celebrate my Birthday. This gem is tucked away on a street in Old Town Scottsdale and is so cute and inviting from the moment you pull up to the parking lot. Upon our arrival we were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside. Given it was over 100 degrees outside we were taken aback, but reassured that the outside patio was very cool (thanks to misters) and quite nice. I'm so glad we did because it is so cute, romantic, and peaceful out on the patio, just the right setting for this lovely dinner.
As many of said, the menu is pre-fixed and includes 4 courses. When we went, I was so happy the everything on the menu looked good and met my taste. We had some kind of bruchetta for appetizer, which was awesome. It was a touch salty, but that did bring out the flavors of everything else. The salad course was good as well... could have done without the frisee lettuce (personal preference), but LOVED the beets. For our entree we both opted for the filet. The sauce was to die for and the steak was cooked to perfection. Again, the salt was very aggressive, but everything else was so tasty, we were able to overlook that. For dessert we had a chocolate cake concoction that was quite good.
Cafe Monarch is a unique restaurant and a must for any foodie. The time and attention given at this restaurant is match by few others. They even gave me a beautiful candle for my Birthday! Can't wait to give Cafe Monarch another try for a special occasion in the future.
