Here are some of the highlights: 

  • Destination Meetings Colorado named Monarch Casino Resort Spa “Company of the Year” in 2021. They rave about the state-of-the-art technology, the comfort of the seating, and the consistently high level of service provided by Monarch’s banquet Team Members! Guests who’ve had their events held at the all-new Bistro Mariposa were wowed by the high-end food quality and ambiance of the restaurant.
  • Not to be outdone, OpenTable diners named the Monarch Chophouse the “Best Steak Restaurant” in the Colorado mountains! They also voted the Chophouse as “Most Romantic” in the Colorado Mountains and rated it as offering the “Best Ambiance” in Denver.
