    Place was ok. I was a little disappointed because I seen so many GREAT reviews, but the food was ok to me. My steak was over cooked, mac and cheese was not good, the mashed potatoes and asparagus were decent. My Shrimp and Layonnaise salad was good. The drinks , live band and service was great ! I would go back for the drinks and to see a show.

    I was rather impressed with the entertainment, and the servers were rather attentive. Too, the food was bar none, the best I’d had in Baltimore, even better than most (if not all) of the higher tier restaurants. That said, while the atmosphere was very enjoyable, the noise level was rather loud. I had a very hard time hearing the people at my table, not mentioning the server. Still, the place is fantastic. Would recommend, for sure.

    I paid $72 for a 14 oz. Dry Aged New York Strip Steak that included at least 2 oz of gristle. They also serve the sauce over the steak which is unusually in this century; maybe to hide the gristle. In addition, the restaurant lighting is dark enough that I could not discern the difference between steak and gristle without putting each bite in my mouth. This isn't a very elegant combination during what I expected to be a luxury meal. At over $200 per person, I hoped that was their objected? Bottom line is that the experience and the steak wasn't worth the price. For the record, I knew the prices before we went and I could afford it; the experience and the food just was not worth the price. My experiences at Capital Grill have always been better.

    The wait staff and front welcome staff were stellar. However, we waited 45 minutes even though we had a reservation. Other parties were waiting for their reserved table as well. What is the purpose of having a reservation if there is not a table ready when you arrive? When approaching management, the excuse given was that there was a roadside accident. I don’t see the correlation between a traffic accident and the availability of tables. Furthermore, proper management would visit the tables to apologize for the inconvenience, especially to those patrons that expressed concern or were unhappy. Our table got no such visit and were instead dutifully ignored for the remainder of the night. Again, everyone else at the restaurant from the performers to the greeting personnel were amazing and the food was delicious. The management, however needs some education on how to run the establishment more smoothly when it comes to table turnover and genuine care for the customers. A restaurant of this caliber needs an equally positioned and dutiful general manager than what we experienced.

    The apps were great; escargot and tuna tartare. The wine recommended by sommelier was not great, I didn't immediately feel I liked it, so I just kept it. She asked about my price range, I said $140 and she recommended a $95, which I thought was a bit odd but I assumed the wine would be good. The worse part was the $185 tomahawk steak with side of bone marrow: I guess the aging process was not too controlled, it tasted just a bit off. This is not my first nor will it be my last time here, just figuring out what I like and don't.

    Good morning, I made reservations for 8:45pm didn’t get seated for a hour. I totally understand it was crowded but they seated someone else before us and we’re suppose to be seated first. I went because I wanted to see the show and it was my birthday and something different. I didn’t want to see the show from the side of the stage couldn’t really get that experience. I started to leave but our waitress was wonderful. I might go back.

    You must dine here! I took my best friend here for her birthday, and we had such a fun time!! The performances were incredible and the food was excellent. The restaurant feels like a mix between Moulin Rouge, Cirque du Soleil, steampunk, and a French Brasserie. If you’re ok with an energetic and exciting dining experience, then I couldn’t recommend Monarque more!!

    Interesting themed restaurant with entertainment. Our food was good but everything was too salty. The Escargot appetizer was delicious but too salty. Our request for more bread to soak up the garlic butter was given to about 5 different people before we got our bread. In the meantime, they attempted to remove the appetizer dish several times before bread was delivered. We also ordered Wild Skate and Duck Frites. Both were delicious but much too salty. The frites were also very oily. Desserts were wonderful and complimentary due to the complaints about the food.

Our server was impressive, knowing when to show up and more importantly, when not to. The food was delicious, I had the Dover Sole for the first time and it won't be the last!

    Phenomenal food, delicious cocktails, classy atmosphere and consistently great service from the restaurant team. If you’re looking for an exquisite dining experience paired with carefully crafted cocktails and nightly shows by some of Baltimore’s most talented artists and performers - this is the best place in town! Try the duck frites and beef tartare, or stop by for the La Vie en Rose or Fleur du Mal cocktails. This place is one of a kind!

And people who work there are great, we had a great server and manager Ivanka stopped multiple times to ensure we were having a great time. She also gave us good food recommendations and told about this restaurant family. We are excited to try out next spot of Atlas group!

    Given the hype around Monarque, we were disappointed. We waited for a special occasion to try them out and I doubt that we’ll return. The food was good, nothing spectacular, much less noteworthy. We had half a chicken and a 10oz filet, and mac and cheese. My husband’s steak was rare rather than medium. He’s not one to send food back, so he made do. The Atlas salad was very good. The service was excellent. Staff is plentiful and attentive. While waiting for our table, the floor manager communicated about the wait and readiy served drinks. Drinks were good, the variety of house cocktails was nice. My husband enjoyed one of the house cocktails (can’t remember the name) and I had a French martini. The libation menu presentation is cool. It’s formatted like a playbill. I’m sure they make a nice profit on the drinks patrons ingest while waiting. Speaking of waiting, the restaurant description states that even with a reservation, it isn’t unusual to wait 30 minutes for your table. The truth is it’s more like an hour. We talked to others who were waiting at the bar with us, and an hour (or close to it) seemed to be consistent. The restaurant has a nice vibe but the entertainment was blah. No fire eaters, contortionist or anything unique. A few dance routines and that’s it. The sets are random and not continuous. It’s definitely worth noting that you should not plan to have any worthwhile conversations, the restaurant is beyond lively.
