Only negative that prevents us from coming more often is that we almost always end up at a two top where we have to sit across from each other.

The Monarch Stag was such a great experience! It was well worth the money spent for a nice afternoon, and the staff were great with educating us on cigars.

Everything bite was delicious and each dish was beautifully plated and prepared! The miso, edamame (spicy), paradise roll all so so good! And so glad we ordered dessert because the matcha ice cream and ginger infused crème brûlée were incredible.

Great spot with a nice happy hour menu. Love that they will take reservation even for 2 people. They enclosed their patio and have fans with AC but still a little warm during the afternoon. Cool vibe but super loud. My friend and I left hoarse from yelling at each other from across a small table. Would give it another try on off peak hours.

The food was great, but unfortunately, our server had to be asked to come to table 3 or 4 times, the manager actually has our food because our server was nowhere to be found. I highly recommend the pancetta pizza and the carbonara! The pie tap punch was also amazing!

Noise level was high due to a mavericks playoff game. Everything else was amazing! Donuts for dessert are a must, along the the bread knots. We will definitely be back!
