Love this place! The food was fantastic, and our waitress was so nice. It was my wife's birthday so I let them know, and they brought her a nice little cake at the end (delicious btw). We got the grand plateau (a tradition by now, second time we get it lol), the duck crepe (so tasty!), the tuna tartare (very nicely done), and I got the scallops and my wife got the chicken (which was huge, even for half a chicken). The live band was playing jazz in the background, and the atmosphere was quite lively. All the waiters are super nice and helpful, they want to make you feel like royalty. Everything was on time, the cocktails were delicious, and overall it was exactly what we wanted for a fancier-than-usual night out. This place is a gem in Baltimore!

Javonte was our waiter. He explained several dishes beautifully. All the food was cooked to perfection. The aged wagyu ribeye was melt in your mouth heaven.

Great… just great! There were two hiccups (initial seating and didn’t have a bottle of wine) but your leadership team was quick to take care of it. They became non-issues. We will 100 be back!

Food is incredible but the show pretty much cheapens the experience. Monarque would still be an incredible restaurant without the show!

Monaarque was a great experience. Getting there was a journey because you have to go through Atlas restaurant and past the courtyard to access Monarque all the way in the back and we didn’t know that. But no matter, it was a beautiful experience. They had a live band playing and the ambience was amazing for a Tuesday night. Food was great, especially the Mouillette and the Bayonne ham and the Pot de creme au Chocolat was one of the best I’ve ever had. You can tell the food is fresh and I even had leftover. So portions were big and food was super fresh and tasty. Dessert was even better. Will definitely come back to taste the rest of the menu when I come back to Baltimore. I forgot the name of our server but we were the third table on the right and it was a black gentlemen who was our server. He was amazing and made our experience even better.

We went to Monarque to celebrate our 5th Wedding Anniversary. It was Amazing ! We came early & waited at the bar for our table. We enjoyed the ambiance while we had a few drinks. Once we were collected for our table , right in front of the stage, we enjoyed the nightly performances of cabaret.

It was Amazing!!
The Food, the wait staff, the hostess !!

Thank You Monarque ! We’ll be back !!

This was fantastic! We came when Monarque first opened and found it to be very good but we weren't truly "wowed". This time around, we were beyond impressed. This is now the crown jewel of Baltimore's dining scene. Highly recommend splurging on a couple ounces of the A5 Japanese Wagyu. Truly the best beef I've ever had. Everything else was fantastic as well, and it's highly recommended to go on a Friday or Saturday when the variety show is playing. Fun performances and atmosphere combined with unbelievable food. A true gem!
