Finally made it to the best French steakhouse I’ve ever been to and that includes the steakhouses I’ve experienced in Paris…. But any who back to @monarquebaltimore which the experience was electrifying from the decor, the service, top quality drinks and food that hit everyone of my senses and I truly mean that. Then the experience was topped off with a lovely show from the monarquettes (great play on words) which was a cross between Burlesque dancers & Circus Soleil. What an experience, check them out!!!!

Went on a Friday night as a table of 4, had a 7:15 reservation and was seated immediately. Server could not have been more lovely. Ordered the tuna tartare and duck app, both really delicious! All ordered different entrees and shared, loved each one more than the next! Had the dry aged rib eye, truffle chicken, duck frites and beef Bourgogne- all were soooo good. Sides were mushroom end corn pudding also super tasty. For dessert we tried the pot de creme, very large, enough for 4 people to share. Wine list was really extensive, and the cocktails were inventive and tasty! The entertainment was so fun and the service top notch! We will def be back.

It was my wife’s birthday. We had an awesome dining experience at Monarque. The ambiance and atmosphere was warm and romantic. The food presentation was outstanding. The food exceeded our expectations. Our waiter and other attendants were outstanding and informed us about menu items in detail, making our selections easy. Our reservation was for 5pm, so unfortunately we were not able to stay for the show. The next time we want to schedule so we can see the performance. We enjoyed so much, while dining we phoned and texts friends and family sharing the experience with them. We can’t wait until our next visit.

Absolutely amazing night. The jazz band was great, they did an outstanding job with a mixer of lyrical songs and instrumentals. Would come again in a heartbeat, great service and food. Definitely on the louder side when the band is performing but never felt like you couldn’t hold a conversation. Drinks and food were delicious.

Really had a wonderful time. Great staff & entertainment. The food was incomparable. I don’t eat meat so i was really out of my depth at a steak house. The waitress recommended the sole and it was heavenly. I will definitely be coming back!

My experience at Monarque was wonderful! The food was amazing in terms of presentation and quality. Our table was pre-bussed quickly between every course and our water glasses were never left empty. We waited about 30-45 minutes for dessert so it was taken off of our check. Other than that we had a great time! Live performance was a nice touch. Monarque is definitely a hidden gem. Atlas never misses!

This was a special occasion and I was willing to pay top dollar for a good steak. I ordered the Bone-in Delmonico and it was absolutely the best steak I have ever had. The only reservation was at 5:15, so we were too early for the show that started at 7:30.

Went on a double date with friends. Food was really good, I got the lamb chops, I tried my husband’s duck and it was very tasty; the rest of our party had the filet mignon (it was quite small) but that’s expected for French food. We missed the show due to our reservation time of 10pm. Can’t wait to be back again but this time with an earlier reservation. I was worried we would have a long wait due to the reviews I read of people waiting an hour to be seated with a reservation. We were seated within 10mins of arrival.

Birthday. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and I wanted to do something special and fun! We are both foodies so we are picky about restaurants. I read the good reviews and it was close to our hotel. So why not try it! We were pleasantly surprised. The steak was cooked very well and the atmosphere was fun and inviting! The server was very attentive and helpful with the menu. The entertainment was very tasteful and well done. Definitely a great find.

What a spot. Dark and sensual Monarque is the date night of date nights. Delicious, high end dishes served alongside truly unique cocktails in an atmosphere you would expect to find in New Orleans. A 4 star meal, burlesque style. We will be returning.

Was disappointed. We love the Atlas group and all of their other restaurants so we wanted to try their new offering out. Waitress was busy flirting at the register. There was only 3 other clients there total. Food was very very average compared to the other Atlas restaurants. Will stick with other places. Ashame.

I was a first timer and booked a reservation last minute for a girlfriend and I. I got a 9:30 table for the 9 pm show but the hostess suggested coming early to ask about tables or to sit at the bar. lucky enough, there was FRONT ROW spot and we sat at 8:45! Food was amazing, may be the best filet I've ever had, and the show was excellent . i'd highly recommend this for a girls night OR romatic date night!
