    The drinks, service, and food were wonderful. Sadly, the snow crab at $38.00 was a joke! There was one small leg, cut lengthwise…maybe 3oz! There was barely enough to chew! It was so laughable, it HAD to be an oversight! The rest of the meal was delicious!

    Wonderful experience at Monarch for my 50th birthday. I had the Dover Sole, and others at my table had lamb chops, duck, and scallops. We shared augratin potatoes and honey truffle carrots. Every single thing was phenomenal- best meal I’ve had in recent history, and my friends felt the same. The entertainment is just right- not too in your face and it sort of weaves in and out during the meal so it’s well spaced. Excellent experience and we’ll definitely return.

    Entertainment was great. Food was good. Portions small, but it's expected of high end restaurants/ French cuisine. Down side is wait time for drinks at the bar. Took 20 minutes to get any bartender to acknowledge us. The drinks were good, however. Wait time for table with reservations also long. Waiter and bus boys were great. Would recommend it.

    What an experience! We felt transported out of Baltimore back to the 1920s. The food was exceptional- the best seafood tower I've ever had and their onion soup was remarkable in particular. Our servers staggered the food out so we had the perfect break between the chilled tower and our hot course. The entertainment on Saturday night was absolutely incredible and the performers were so talented. We also appreciated that there were gaps between acts so we could still be able to chat during our meal. Can't wait to go back again!

    This was easily the best place we’ve ever eaten. The food and drinks were perfection. The service was so nice. And the show was cool! Our only complaint is you can’t really hear each other or the servers very well over the music. But that’s part of the experience so we aren’t really complaining 😄

    The show was great The food was great our server was incredible. She paid attention to us she paid attention to detail And she was very friendly. Everything was amazing Need to share this though The Bartender Who took our order as we waited for our table was A little short with us He rushed my order walked away before I finished placing it. I had to walk noticeably to the other side of the bar to give him the rest of the order and he Did not seem to care. And by the way we did not wait long for our tabloid all. Like I said everything was amazing. We will be back!

    I treated my husband for his 41st birthday here and we had an amazing time! We had the gnocchi as an appetizer and shared the 22 oz ribeye steak and sides of creamed spinach and frites. They even sliced the ribeye for us to share! We topped it off with the chocolate & carmel dessert and all that food was perfect for us to leave content but not over stuffed. There was a nice selection of cocktails and I appreciated the mocktails being pregnant. Everything was absolutely delicious and the service was great! Our reservation was at 7:30 which was a great time to get there for all the little shows to start! It was more than just a dinner but an experience which was a nice change. My husband loved it and will definitely be back!

    We celebrated my wife's birthday at Monarque. When we arrived there was a handwritten birthday card for her from the Maitre De. The service was outstanding. Christian took care of us and was extremely friendly and professional. The drinks were fantastic. I had the best Old Fashion ever. She had the French 75 which she enjoyed. The entree was the beef bourguignon with scalloped potatoes (french name i cant recall) and creamed spinach. Everything was fantastic. The bonus was the musician that played blues and cover songs which was not too loud but definitely added to the ambience. We went on a Tuesday and there were several private parties and guests but not overly crowded. 10 out of 10 recommend.

    Everything about Monarque was really great, except for the food. The food isn't bad, but it's just decent given the price point. When I think of other restaurants with comparable food offerings and prices, they far exceed Monarque's food quality. The drinks, the ambiance, and the performances are all great. The bar made a smoked old fashioned for me that was simply amazing. I will definitely return to enjoy the drinks and atmosphere but temper my expectations with the food.

    I took my husband here to celebrate his birthday. The greeting was outstanding. My server was amazing. He was very attentive to our needs. The wait staff in general was amazing. However, food was over priced (Bygone had better options for better prices) the entertainment wasn’t great. I wished it was better. The restaurant was LOUD. The guests were screaming at the other tables. It was impossible to enjoy an intimate setting for my husband and I. I won’t return to this establishment.

    It was my bday and I thought it would be great to experience something like this. The food was amazing!!! I loved everything I got. We ordered the seafood tower. I had the filet with green beans as my entree. I also tried the gnocchi. all excellent!! The drinks weren’t nothing to write home about. I ended up drinking the bisou chaton since the margaritas were not that good. The experience was okay as it was too loud to experience the show. It was a Saturday but I didn’t expect a lounge/bar environment for an upscale restaurant. People were standing over me while I ate. Tables were overly crowded. I wasn’t able to really see or experience the show as it was way too loud. Maybe I should give it another try on a less busier night. Haven’t decided yet.

    This was our first visit!The setting was appropriate but the temperature was cold breezy and drafty! The tables were not conducive to a conversation! There is music no problem but then need a closer connection bwt guests to hear. Need some pillows on the benches for more comfort. We ordered two different bourbons for our old fashion and because a server brought instead of our server we did not get the explanation of which one which. Our table cleared efficiently! The acts were okay but did not seem to flow well! The food was tasty but having everything ala cart does not give options for a complete meal if you don’t have anyone to share sides with.

    Avoid Friday and Saturday nights where the restaurant sounds and feels like an expensive Cheesecake Factory. Conversation is impossible due to deafening sound levels. Food is good. Service is fine. The drink selection is impressive. The “show” is purely symbolic and pretty sad and barely there. When the place first opened there was more production value and entertainment. If you go, choose Wednesday nights for MJH, who never disappoints, although I felt bad for him since it feels like the beginning of The Fabulous Baker Boys where the patrons completely ignore the players.

    We loved our experience here - very theatrical and the service is excellent. The food is SO good, definitely one of the best steaks I’ve had in a long time…. The decor is beautiful and really puts you back in time. It is a bit loud which is part of the whole experience and energy I think. But yes we would definitely go again.
