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

This place is certainly a fine dinning experience. We were taken care of beautifully by their entire team. A fresh four course meal was prepared for us. The only negative was our table location near the small bar and line to the single- person restroom. Make sure you ask for table away from the main traffic pattern of the bar... More

Live in Scottsdale and have dined at the Monarch since the original chef Christopher opened this culinary delight. The current owners have taken it to new heights with pure perfection as the goal...and they attained that in ambiance, food & service. Recently went there for my wife's birthday dinner. There were five family members and our experience was first class... More

This restaurant is the perfect place for Valentine's day dinner. The lights are perfectly dimmed and the backyard is beautifully decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Bravo!
