Sat in a delightful garden setting, and consumed the 4 course tasting menu with gusto. First choice Thai prawns or cauliflower soup with a hint of truffle, both great but go for the soup, if you have that choice. The salad with pork belly was a melting moment of delight. One of our group supplemented the courses with a helping... More

Just visited this evening and had a wonderful table on the outdoor patio. The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely some of the best I have ever eaten! From the first course to the last, the food was expertly prepared. The ingredients were fresh, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The mixed drinks and wine were also fantastic. Be prepared... More

Our table of ten was graciously hosted by Gus, the owner, and staff from moment we made the reservations, through many reservation changes, and then to our actual meal. This single-family owned and managed local Scottsdale restaurant offers only a tasting menu that changes every week. Oh what a tasting menu! We were excited not only by the sound of... More

We were there with friends to celebrate 2 birthdays and we had a wonderful dining experience. Everything was perfect from our arrival to being seated in the wonderful back courtyard. The food and service was excellent. Everything we ate on the pre-fixe menu was delicious sea bass and duck. The starters were perfection . Since the menu changes frequently it... More

I didn't research enough and was surprised that it is a pre fix menu only. We brought our teenage daughters and were the only family in the place. It is a very nice restaurant with excellent service and all dishes that we tried were great. It seemed most of the other guests were couples celebrating a special event. We sat... More

My husband and I had a lovely four-course dinner at the Monarch Cafe. We dined outside and the atmosphere was warm, charming and private. Service was excellent and the food unique and delicious. Will definitely dine there again .

The Cafe Monarch is very special, romantic appearing restaurant, although I was there with a business group, so I must return with my spouse for the romance. The fare is expensive, but it is delightful, original, and as beautifully presented as delicious. Even with the fixed price, there were many alternative options. My group tasted food ordered by everyone, and... More
