    Ambiance was great, food was delicious. Slightly disappointed they didn't offer a complimentary dessert for the birthday we were celebrating considering - which was indicated when making the reservation. Also mislead by OpenTable saying the restaurant offers complimentary valet, which is incorrect - wound up being charged $10.

    I was really excited to go to Monarch but was pretty disappointed in the food and the level of service. The atmosphere was outstanding though and the salads were awesome. Everything else just okay and for it being a special occasion and how much we spent, I was pretty disappointed.

    Leo was an excellent table captain. The food was delicious and the service excellent. The wood oven roasted tiger prawns are highly recommended; as is the Momma's Spicy Rigatoni. An excellent meal.

    The food definitely wasn’t as good as we thought it was going to be especially for the price. I had requested a window seat which we didn’t get at first and was the main reason why we had even booked at the Monarch. Our waitress however the best! She was able to move us to a window table that had finished their dinner and she even offered to take us upstairs to see a better view when her shift was almost over. The food was very bland to us and if the quality of meat was suppose to better we couldn’t tell a difference. There was two older couples that were extremely loud. It was a nice place and we got it off our check list but we probably won’t be going again.

    MonarchResponded on November 17, 2022Hi Jeremy, Thank you for taking the time in writing this. We appreciate the feedback and will be sharing with the team. We hope to see you again soon!

    We had a terrible experience that effectively ruined what was supposed to be a special occasion. The hostess was extremely rude, and even after calling and going through the pointless step of sending a photo of us (at the restaurant’s request) to ensure we’d be greeted - and seated - appropriately, we were not. The bar staff was very nice and accommodating, drinks outstanding. We did not stay to eat but our appetizers were alright, just delivered cold. All in all abysmal and one of the worst dining experiences we’ve ever had. Yes, there is a pretty view from the ladies’ bathroom if a snap for IG is your thing.

    MonarchResponded on November 17, 2022Hi Rachel, We apologize that we fell short of expectations during your visit. We will be sending you a DM and would love to know more about what happened. Thank you!

    Fiancée and I came in looking for a fun night out, looking to see and be seen while in town on business. What a great place! The crowd was upscale, and the vibe electric. We were super comfortable and enjoyed the pulse. Staff was incredible, and we dove into the 2 ounce caviar service followed by entrees. All fantastic. Fiancée was on fire that night and she got a lot of attention. Mission accomplished. Can’t wait to come back and head upstairs after dinner next time we’re in Dallas!

    We loved loved loved this restaurant. Cocktails were amazing. Rosie was friendly & knowledgable & made us feel welcome each time we sat @ the bar. Our meal was outstanding. Worth every penny!!! I highly recommend the king crab leg. It was to amazing. Our sommelier was knowledgeable and knew exactly what we wanted. Our wine was perfect. Don’t forget the chocolate dessert. All of this and I should mention the view isn’t so bad. It’s on the 27th floor.

    We had a most amazing meal here - not to mention the view, which was terrific! On the advice of my server, I chose a stuffed ravioli dish with fresh truffle shavings. It was to die for! The wine list is superb. The appetizers are unique and enjoyable. Service was outstanding. Everything about this was an A+ experience!

    Absolutely stunning dining experience. From the moment we dropped off the car with valet the experience was 5 stars. The staff was superb - the service is second to none. The food, my gosh, was nothing short of spectacular. The presentation of the food by the staff at the table was also fun - giving very detailed descriptions and explanations of what you’re about to tease your palate with. There is no dining experience better anywhere in Dallas. Period!
