    This was my first time here and it blew my expectations away! It truly was an incredible culinary experience. The entire staff was exceptional especially our bartender, Dan the Man. We will never forget our dinner here and will absolutely be back!

    Only service miss was the wine came out much too late on the 3rd course. Otherwise 5 stars in service. Wine pairings and knowledge were spot on.

    We had an amazing experience at Cafe Monarch! The food was incredible and our servers Chris and Angelo made the evening memorable. We were there celebrating a birthday and the restaurant went out of their way to make it special! Every dish was spectacular. We dined inside, but the outdoor seating is beautiful. I can't wait to go back!

    Easily the best food I have ever experienced. Every dish was art for the 8-course tasting menu. The portions are small, and it’s an expensive evening, but I left full and it was 100% worth it.

    The most amazing meal ever. Beautifully plated. Ricky, our server was wonderful. Next time we will sit inside, as it was a bit hot even with the misters.

    Our first time dining at Cafe Monarch was to celebrate our anniversary and our expectations were exceeded. The food, the service, the ambience - impeccable. We have traveled all over the world and have a short list of restaurants and hotels where our experience was flawless and so memorable that we consider them to be a value at any price. This week, we added Cafe Monarch to the list. Well done!
