Classical fine dining in Scottsdale. Yes, it is expensive, however the service, food flavors, atmosphere, and the over-all dining experience are all wrapped up into the cost. Very delicious foods, and good wine list. Sitting on the patio in the evening enjoying the desert weather was hard to beat. The nicest thing, was that our party was not rushed, or... More

If you are looking for a romantic patio with fabulous food this is the place. Tucked into a side street in Old Town Scottsdale is a wonderful gem. The ambience is so beautiful that you could be any place in the world. The service is very knowledgeable and attentive while feeling seem less. They offer a four course Price Fixed... More

The food was excellent and the wait staff fantastic. Our waiter and runner were professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. I'm usually a very picky eater (think kid, not snob), but the flavors of the dishes were well-developed and complimented each other nicely. Although each individual course is small, the four-course menu will certainly leave you sated. Between the cute courtyard... More

Everything we ate was exceptionally tasty. You don't leave uncomfortably full, as the portions are on the smaller size (which is fine for 4 courses). Our main waiter was great and passionate about food. The problem came with the servers. Three out of four courses were placed out of order. Nothing was explained when presented, which was off putting to... More

I was lucky to score a table for two outside. Innovative menu, food had great flavor depth. Unusual spices. Top notch service with an especially good wine list. Must do if traveling to Scottsdale.

Wow. I did not know what to expect. Great service- I mean super excellent- food was great. I think the only way to go and have a best experience is to add the wine pairing. It is a bit pricy- but totally worth it. Everything was delicious. I am definitely going back with other friends! I really enjoy this place!

We usually go to celebrate our birthdays or anniversaries. Most diners seem to prefer outdoor courtyard dinning but we like the romantically lit indoors resembling a more intimate atmosphere. But, it's appropriate for no special occasion, just fine dining. The menu changes weekly so check website as each course gives a choice of one of two options. They do have... More

We are accomplished chefs and very experienced diners at fine restaurants. Our experience at Cafe Monarch was one of the most wonderful dining experiences we've ever had. We had no idea when we were seated, but the delightful man taking care of us was Christian Lewkowicz, the owner. Delicious food, ambiance and service. We will return and enjoy this great... More

Wonderful fixed price dinner with wine pairing for approx 180$. Great value. The cauliflower soup, friend soft shell crab and foie gras was absolutely delicious- wonderful service with Scott as our waiter. Great selection of wines for the pairing-

Enjoyed eating on the patio. They have misters to keep you comfortable. The food and service are fantastic. Don't be in a hurry, you'll want to make an evening of it.
