Monarch @ Hotel Zaza
Awesome meal great atmosphere and company
First time to have Andrew for breakfast/lunch server. Very personable friendly and went out of his way to make our request happen!!!
Thank you Andrew
We were in town for business and thought we would stop here for a quick bite before our flight out. Our server was completely unattentive. One thing that stood out was he ended up accidentally knocking over a glass of water on our table and never bothered to clean it or wipe up the water. I guess he figured it was at the end of our meal so he didn’t need to bother. Quite ridiculous frankly.
Enjoyed both the conversation/service of Zack and the Tuna Steak...prepared to order
Wonderful location and ambiance - the outdoor eating area one of the prettiest dining areas inside the loop. Food was delicious (as always). Service remains uneven. Drinks not brought to the table after 20 minutes. Drink order when arrived was incorrect. Food order incorrect and taken back to the kitchen to fix. The waitstaff tried to make it better for us as the meal progressed (comped one of the entrees) but the whole experience would have been better if right the first time. This is the second time we have had this experience - we will go back because we love the food / environs and we visit the MFAH often. Hoping brunch service will improve.
Food and service was excellent! Highly recommend the spaghetti bolognese. The outdoor area is warm and beautifully decorated. We’ll be back!
Service was good but a little rushed. Tables and chairs on the terrace could use a little love. Food was good and worth the price for the valentine menu. Other than feeling rushed which could have been because it was the day after valentines day, was a good experience.
Great restaurant for dinner or Sunday Brunch. It is a nice restaurant where your comfortable to dress smart causal.
The whole night was incredible! The food.. OMG the food was so good I could’ve cried! The Filet and Lobster Valentine’s Special and the Salmon with Cauliflower we’re both exceptional! The chocolate fondue dessert was ahh-maze-ing! Connor gave us the best service I’ve had in years!
Very romantic for a night out on town. Service was great and the food was flavorful.
The service was great, the food was very good. I had the salmon which was perfect.My husband had the petite filet and he said it was very good. The only problem was even though it wasn’t very busy we were seated at a bench table and they sat a single person right next to us who eavesdropped on everything we said. They could have given us a bit more space to enjoy our dinner without being encroached on by a stranger.
Super great tasting filet and cooked to order as requested
The service was very good. The ambience was warm and inviting. Our food was great. We love to eat at this restaurant and we will definitely return.
Great experience food not that clever but nice for a hotel. I’ll go back
Very tasty and tender lamb lollipops! Even well done, like l asked, they were not dry. Great service. Loved valet parking.
Nice easy lunch with no pressure to order.
Great burger and Excellent fries.
The service all worked together to provide a great delivery.
The Monarch Room continues to be one of my favorite places to visit in Houston - whether that be for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or just wine. The ambiance can't be beat - the location is perfect. Tack on a visit to Miller Outdoor Theater before/after Monarch Room for a perfect night!
I was really excited about coming here, haven’t had brunch here in a while. Service and food was horrible yesterday. I ordered the smoked salmon and bagel yesterday, salmon was bad I took one bite and didn’t eat anymore. Our server saw that I didn’t touch my food and asked if he could remove the plate, I said yes the salmon is not good.. no apologies was given just picked up the plate and walked away. I get the check and the food was still on there, I wasn’t going to argue just paid it. I’m really disappointed
Outstanding! Our waiter was very attentive and the food was perfect! I have a small appetite and the crabcake and arugula salad was wonderful and we capped it off by sharing a luscious key lime pie!
Not been here for many years since it was the Warwick Hotel. Outstanding location in heart of museum district and West U section of Houston. The hotel is great and the Monarch restaurant better. Put it on your list when fusion and nueveau Tex-Mex has you longing for traditional white tablecloth food with flair.
Thank you to the host who sat us, he was so nice! Josue did a great job as our server, food was fabulous
Tasty food, lovely ambiance!
I really loved the food and the view. We had enjoyed the moment.
Sadly the Monarch fell short in many ways. The service was lacking and so was the food. For the extremely pricy bill we were highly disappointed for a special birthday dinner at one of our previously favorite spots.
My son’s birthday with friends. Outside seating worked well. Great service... food was superb!
As always, great food, great service, and a great view from the patio. We love the Monarch and the Hotel ZaZa!
Great table location on the patio, good service, great food.
Food was great! My husband's steak was huge! Maybe because we were sitting too close to bar area, it was a little loud. My husband couldn't hear what l was saying.
Service was excellent. Loved the vegetarian Superfoods bowl with the impossible burger patty. I will be back just for this.
Great job start to finish. Wait time, service, quality of food. Helpful, accommodating wait staff ready to help. I will be back.
Always consistent service and food no matter what time or what day I visit
The food was pretty average but the service was fantastic. Can’t blame the service for the food and can’t give the food credit that the service group earned, so 3/5 stars.
Fabulous hamburgers...fresh tasting meat cooked to requested temp and SUPER fries!!!
Great experience in spite of the weather!!
Lamb chops weren't as good as I remember them. I felt they were lacking the seasoning. We ordered them medium but next time need to order them medium well as I didn't like the chewiness of the meat. The crab cakes were delicious. More crab than bread crumbs. Perfectly cooked perfectly seasoned
The key lime pie was a special treat. Perfect in taste, consistency and flavor!!
Beautiful atmosphere always 💕
Def a revisit soon
We had made a reservation and we were sat in the bar that was very loud. Our waitress seemed to forget about us when we didn’t order alcohol. It took so long to order and to get our bill that I don’t believe I will go back.
Great market fish with fabulous vegetables
Great burger and excellent crispy fries!!!!
I had high expectations to be having dinner in such a nice 4 star hotel but unfortunately it was disappointing. Our experience started when we asked the waiter for a gin cocktail. We explained we liked cucumber or basil. Of course he said and recommended something from the cocktail list that sounded good. A few minutes later he returned with two Whisky cocktails. I asked him to come back and explained the problem. He quickly recommended another and I asked to read the description which turned out to be vodka based. I eventually ordered a G&T. Now for the menus....this was 8pm and we were sitting with lunch menu's and I asked for the dinner menu. He exchanged them for almost identical menu's. One said dinner and one said lunch. There was no mention of the HRW menu so I assumed they were not participating. We ordered two appetizers and one entree which were good, basic but good.
Our bill was $150 for a basic meal and inadequate service which we paid and left. We reached the valet parking who wanted $15 for parking. I commented that it seemed high when we just eat in the restaurant for 90 minutes. She reluctantly suggested we ask the restaurant to validate our parking.
Again, another example of poor service from the restaurant staff. Why were we not told this when we checked in or by the waiter. Why were we not offered the HRW menu. Why does the waiters not know the 8 or so cocktails on their list. It may be a 4 star Hotel, but it is a 2 star restaurant. I will not be going back when Houston has so many amazing restaurants with well trained eager staff.
Best steak I’ve had in a long time. Looking forward to going back. The table next to us was obnoxious and loud for such a nice place. Not much you can do about that. I highly recommend this place
