  • The Monarch converted its backyard from a beer garden into a precious little Wicker Park hideaway, complete with an herb garden.
  • This place smells like farts
  • Waiting for a table? Check out the 4 Miles 2 Memphis boutique across the street (from Danielle of American Pickers).
  • They have a brand new menu that brings the house down. Must eat the scallops and the steak tartare, and the main dish you have to try the Amish chicken beast with a popcorn sauce and cornbread grits
  • Reservations are worthless.
  • Monarch does not understand the concept of a reservation. They TAKE the reservations. They just don't HONOR the reservation. #FAIL
  • Don't go - had reservations; waited 45 min; still no table. Our group left.
  • Champagne for first time visitors...well played.
  • Don't Ever Play with Guns is an awesome drink! Also have the Blue Crab appetizer.
  • Two words: duck chilaques.
  • Love this place. The day Kith and Kin closed I was so sad. I wish the chef would bring back the Chicken Thighs from Kith and Kin. The Wings, Fries, Bibb Salad, Foie Gras, and Pimento Cheese are great!
  • Service kinda stunk on a slow, Sunday afternoon. Drinks were alright but the food was yummy!
  • Nice patio seating out back.
  • Overpriced cocktails
  • Sunday Brunch
  • Detroit Sports
  • Diner Burger and Beers
  • Bottomless Brunch
  • Diner Burger
  • Best Burger
