    All three of us thought the food was bland. The salsa was very mild, the Chile regional was very mild. Would have liked some more kick. The food was ok though and the service was good.

    Good food , good drinks, at first the service was not what I was expecting, but after letting the server knew my expectations, the service got a lot better. Beautiful place. Will go back again.

    There's potential, but many problems. The handmade guacamole dip was delicious, but the chips were dull and in stingy proportions. The vegetarian burrito was essentially onions and peppers, mostly the former, missing beans and rice and sauce. When we pointed out errors to our server, he tried to blame us for supposedly not reading the menu rather than address our concerns. I cannot recommend this restaurant.

    My wife and I stopped by for lunch and had a margarita, table side guac (outstanding!) and enjoyed super service in the bar area. The only complaint I have is that the write up didn't mention the restaurant is in a mall on a busy street.

    No problem with reservation or seating on arrival. The menu was extensive with all the usuals, as tacos, burritos etc, and some more unusual upscale items. Our waiter Alejandro was superb and made some very useful suggestions. Curiously, the silverware seemed poor quality compared to everything else but they certainly worked well enough to deliver the food to our mouths. We would go back.

    This place is very authentic, aesthetically speaking. They were short- handed but our server was very good. There was live music, a little too loud for dinner. Out of the five of us, three enjoyed their meals; the other two not so much. Their food was cold and not very tasty. All in all, if you have a family, this is a big bang for the buck.

    This was our first time at Monarcas at Edison Mall in Fort Myers. It was an okay experience but nothing special. The food was good (average) with very good service. The environment was very good with low noise so we could carry on a normal conversation and the restaurant was decorated very nice. I know there is higher inflation from the pandemic, etc. but thought the prices were slightly on the high side for Mexican food.

    We ordered 7 Mares, a seafood soup. The menu described it with vegetables and garlic bread but we didn't get any. When asked, the waitress didn’t believe us so I asked for the menu to show her. She said the menu was wrong. Calamari in the soup was like rubber bands, not edible. Menu needs updating. Very disappointing.

    Unfortunately, the food that we ordered wasn't great, especially in flavor. Tableside guacamole lacked flavor. My wife had Carne Anadarko tacos and she reported the meat lacked any real flavor. Additionally, there were tough pieces of gristle in the taco, not tender pieces of skirt steak or flank steak.

    Great Mexican food..I was able to make a last minute reservation for 9! All other restaurants would not allow me to make a reservation for a group that big. Food was great, service was good. Only downside the bathrooms were not available? They were working on fixing the problem...pretty sure it was a last minute thing.

    I ordered the 7 mares (seafood soup) expensive $24.00 and it was one of the poorest entrees I have ever been served. The broth was fishy with no hint of Mexican flavor. The fish mixture called for octopus which I could find no sign of and I told the waiter of my dissatisfaction with my entrée and the lack of octopus. He returned from the kitchen to tell me the octopus was in their blend but finely diced. In regard to the poor entrée he blamed the customers by saying that the kitchen changed the recipe based on customer feed back. My dining companions sampled the dish and concurred with my assessment. We started our meal with table side guacamole -- which was very good. One of our diners has Mahi Mahi tacos and commented that they were flavorless another diner was satisfied with his meal.

    Food and service was not very good. Took my mother, wife and mother in law and they all said the same thing the restaurant service was poor waited along time to be served our drinks and food. My meal was terrible the meat was over cooked and hard; I had terrible difficulty cutting. My wife said she had better Tacos in Taco bell and paid much less. Tell you the truth the food was very expensive for what we received. We expected better. Very sad to say because the restaurant itself was very impressive.

    TASTELESS!! DONT GET RIPPED OFF!!I If you’re looking for food that TASTE LIKE CARDBOARD this is the place to go...I had the mole poblano, and it was by far the worst Mexican mole I have ever had. WHAT A DISRESPECT TO MEXICAN FOOD!!! Like my 11 yr old can cook way better! Guacamole is from a bag! When the menu says they prep it fresh at your table side!!!! We were a party of 4 and paid $160.00 WHICH IS CRAZY for the horrible food, the service was nothing to brag about either. Oh and to add insult to injury THE WAITER GAVE HIMSELF A 20% TIP!!! I was only going to give him a 15% tip because he was not attentive at all and it’s not his fault the food was bad. I guess they try to make up for the absolutely tasteless food with the very nice decor! I’ll give them a 9 on that. Sorry, I usually don’t write reviews but, the experience I had was SO BAD I felt I have to let people know, especially since it’s so dam expensive.

    I was extremely disappointed that my booking on Open Table showed very little openings for the evening I wanted. The restaurant showed much differently. I was also upset that our pitcher of margarita's wasn't the quality we paid for. Food was very good and loved the decor!
