    This was an amazing date restaurant. The energy of the restaurant was vibrant because of the live performances. Conversation was difficult when the band was playing but they were a nice touch. The food was fantastic my girlfriend and I both got steaks that were very flavorful. The rib cap was exceptional and we both highly recommend the beef tartare. Wine list was impressive but a little over priced. Our server Rachel was amazing, being in the service industry makes me notice a lot about service and Rachel knocked it out of the park.

    Always have the best experience at Monarque. The entertainment last night and energy of the restaurant and performers was SO fun!! The food is spectacular and on point as usual. The detail put into every single dish, dinner to drinks to dessert is beyond anything else in the city except the other Atlas restaurants. This has become our favorite of the Atlas restaurants.

    Friends birthday. Place was a little small. Back was facing stage. Dover sole was so so, not moist like Bronzino. A bit overpriced. Fun though!

    Second time at Monarque. The shows and performers are what brings people in- the bar ands a vibrant cocktail area helps. The food was a little saltier than usual. The filet and lobster were over cooked and small portions for the prices they charge. There are several restaurants and steak houses in Baltimore that represent a much higher end experience. The salad was okay, the dessert not so great. Overall, a disappointment- we will not be going back for third time.

    The description states this isn’t a kid friendly restaurant however there were small children there. While they weren’t too loud they were at times a bit fussy. That’s the one draw back for me!

    This is my second time at Monarque. The food and service are exceptional. The entertainment was not as much on a Monday night, but the piano player was great. We even commented on how well the volume in the room was balanced with our conversation. Everyone that came to our table was kind and happy to be there. Emily was a great server.

    The service was great! Very welcoming and fun atmosphere. The tables by the stage for two were quite small but manageable. Food was good. I recommend the Mac and cheese. The burger was a little over cooked to be medium well and the put two thin patty’s on a bun instead of one big burger. For a steakhouse I would have thought the burger would have been much better. The chicken was great, very flavorful and moist.

    Let’s talk about the exquisite service…the waitstaff and the mangers were top notch. The team was attentive and the service was prompt. The made fantastic food suggestions. We had the raw oysters, lamb, and crab cake for appetizers. This was only disappointing part of the day. The blue crab cake was not great, especially given we are in Baltimore. I order oysters all the time and these were the smallest oysters I’ve ever seen. Don’t waste you time ordering these. For our main courses we had the scallops and half chicken. The scallops were delicious. Some of the best I’ve had out. The chicken was just ok. For the sides, we the truffle fries and creamed spinach. Both of those were delicious as well. Don’t waste your time with the dessert. Overall, I would highly recommend.

    We are new to the area and I wanted an upscale dinner spot to take my dad to while visiting. Monarque had great reviews and did not disappoint! The live jazz music made for the perfect ambience for a great evening. Food was outstanding and the service was even better, shout-out to our server Dylan who went above and beyond!

    The host and hostess were fantastic and attentive and very helpful. The main issue was once we arrived at our table. Our waiter gave us the feeling that he could not wait to get us out and turn the table over. He came over to ask if wanted water (2 minutes after we sat down) and then immediately asked if we. Knew what we wanted for dinner. We told him That we would like to look at the cocktail menu and order a pre dinner drink and then look at the menu. He came back over and took our cocktail order and immediately asked if we knew what we wanted for dinner. We said we had decided on our appetizers but would like to sit and enjoy our drinks and pursue the menu. He came back over in minutes and asked for our dinner order so we finally relented as it appeared he really wanted our order. He never came back during the meal to ask if we needed anything or wanted another drink. As we were about 3/4 finished with our meals he asked if we wanted to box anything up to go. I ordered one more drink and my wife wanted to order tea to drink while we watched the show but before he could even bring my drink over he gave me a box for my dinner and the check. We were not ready to leave, the show had not started, and we had been looking forward to seeing some of the show before being forced out the door. It was quite disappointing on the special occasion of our anniversary after great anticipation of a wonderful night out with a nice dinner and a show, to be made to feel as if we were just faces to run through as quickly as possible yo Maximize the tip For the waiter. At the high prices of these meals and drinks and the promotion of the restaurant as an “experience”, I would have expected much more. I will say, the performers we were able to see before (being rushed out) were amazing and we truly would have loved yo have been able to see more. Unfortunately, our anniversary dinner was more of a disappointing blur rather than an immersive dinner and theater experience.
