Diner Reviews
  • "If you are up for some laughs make sure to be there for the 9:00 show. I will add it is not a G rated show."

  • "Came back after a visit in 2013 and didn't think the quality of the food was as good. My seafood entree came with a completely different preparation than listed on the menu and nobody advised it had changed. Wine list was so so for being a wine based restaurant. Nice location but needs to step it up a bit to get me back."

  • "We picked this restaurant as it was close to our hotel on iDrive and the menu sounded great on the web. Classy decor gave a good impression on arrival. No bison burger available, but the Angus beef version was great & the bun was light and crusty. Sad to say I was very disappointed with the mahi-mahi - not very fresh, the black beans were completely dried out on top, I could taste no lime or cilantro in the "lime cilantro" rice & some of the grains were uncooked. Also I'm glad we didn't arrive any later as a DJ started with some pumping dance music around 8.30pm as were were finishing - great music, but that's not why I went to a restaurant wine-bar! So does the restaurant completely re-invent itself after dark? We didn't stay to find out."

  • "As a party of 2 women we were seated by bathrooms entrance. Unappetizing & annoying as a line formed. Several items selected, starters & entrees were out. Gave up on a starter. Ordered mahi with cilantro & lime rice, neither flavor could be tasted and rice was dry. Coconut curry shrimp over taglatelli was swimming in sauce making it messy to eat - flavor was good. Decor was casual elegan"

  • "Was a day of find and we had a few different preferences joining us so their menu was great. Everyone found something they liked. Sushi was unique and fresh, appetizers enough to share. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "For a wine bar, they had a good selection and decent enough food. The main issue was the service but only from a specific waiter. When the second round of wine was ordered it was unceremoniously dumped directly in my glass without even the offer of a tasting! The second waiter serving was good and friendly, but I'd expect a bit more class from a place highlighting wine in their adverts."

  • "I expected Funky Monkey to be more wine oriented based on their sign and presentation of glasses on the table and wine racks up and down an entire wall. The wine list was mediocre at best. The menu seemed confused as well. Again, sign read "bistro" and menu ranged from thai curry pasta dish to steak to sushi. Seems like they need to decide on a theme and make it work. That aside, the food was tasty and ambiance was nice. Was traveling so probably will not return, but hopefully they can get it together for locals. Good lucK!"

  • "Excellent service, not so excellent eats. Not a very big menu, and many unavailable items, including several seafood items. Also, many wine selections were unavailable - at a restaurant that touts itself as a Wine Company!"

  • "This restaurant seemed to suffer from am identify crisis. It touts itself las a wine bar, but there is no "wines by the glass" menu. The sushi menu seemed like an afterthought and was very limited. We got our appetizers fairly quickly. The tuna tartare and seaweed salads were good. Our sushi entree took another 30+minutes and was fair. Maybe we simply ordered the wrong thing. We were there on a Friday night and got to catch a little of the Las Vegas revue. It was a lot of fun, but immediately turned a seemingly fine dining restaurant into a nightclub. Again - such an off combination. Orlando has amazing locally-owned restaurants. Funky Monkey is not one of them."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I was hoping to have sushi, but the server discouraged it due to the time it would take to get the food. It seems all the food took the same amount of time, I should have ordered the sushi. All in all the food was very good."

  • "We were here with client on business. Apps came out right away, but it seems they forgot our dinner order. After asking three times it arrived two hours after sitting down. Client had to box hers up - found out she threw it out because the t-bone was grissly. Food was salty. On top of that, they tried to charge us 20% for a party of 5. Very unimpressed."

  • "We had a reservation for 6 and the staff was completely unprepared. There was a convention in town that apparently SHOCKED them. Food/Service/Attitude was all awful. If you have a choice and can secure a reservation elsewhere....do it!"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The sushi was worse than airport sushi! Dry rice that fell apart with soy sauce. Each piece was a different size. The sashimi was the worst slicing I have ever seen! Worse yet, the sashimi still had some silver skin on it. They forgot an appetizer and all of the chicken was overdone! Way overpriced for what we got. They must rely on tourists that are unlikely to return."

  • "In Orlando for a few days to visit family. Got onto OpenTable for a last minute reservation and found the Funky Monkey. What a great decision. After some waiting, they seated us in the middle of the restaurant next to a very long table (party of 30 or so) Was great people watching for sure! Ordered our meals, wine and all was EXCELLENT! I had the chicken saltimboca and my wife had the mahi. Suddenly, the DJ announces that the show is about to begin. We had no idea that we had ventured into the middle of a drag show! OMG, what a great time!!! It was funny, risqué, and an absolute delight!!! If you're in Orlando on a Friday, go to Funky Monkey - you won't be disappointed!"

  • "There is a show on Friday and Saturday nights. It features male and female impersonators lip-synching to music. My party was not impressed with the show. If the performers had actually been singing, it would have been better."

  • "We only picked this restaurant because of no Valentine's menu. Regular menu & not a stupid limited one. WRONG. We arrived 30 min early. All was well. Waitress was nice & music was low. Many tables were occupied but the restaurant was not crowded. Then DJ turned the music up as if it were a club... Tables were all 2-tops clearly indicating people wanting to talk to each other. DJ didn't let anyone do that. Waitress told us after 1.5 hrs of waiting that our steaks (WD) take longer. Not 1.5 hrs! When steaks arrived - MR & M - we had to send them back. After another 1hr we still hadn't eaten. Some weird tranny show started. Waitress was nowhere to be found. We wanted to leave. We were given a different dessert to-go from the advertised. Shame!"

  • "We have been to other restaurants in the Funky Monkey family, and had good experiences each time. So we tried Funky Monkey Wine Co. and were not disappointed. This is a much classier establishment than their other locations, and the food is appropriately more sophisticated. They have a set menu, with options. I had the salmon, and it was cooked & seasoned to perfection. Service was quick, friendly, and personal. On Friday and Saturday nights they have a very non-child friendly burlesque drag show that is amazingly entertaining. Partial nudity and fowl language, so be warned. This is a wonderful restaurant and very fun show. You should go and experience it soon."

  • "Went there for valentines day. The food was amazing, but they might have mentioned what type of "vegas style" show this was. We weren't the only shocked ones in the room. Let's just say that we were quite pleased to be seated far away from the stage. On a brighter note, it does give me quite the story to tell."

  • "Lobster sushi appetizer was so good, wanted more for entree. Ozzo bocco was so big couldn't finish but very moist, fell apart with fork. Recommended zinfendel wine was so good, we shared another. Excellent service! Only negatives were noise level and slightly dirty bathroom."

  • "This was our first time. As we were looking around to find a restaurant we haven't been to we came across the Funky Monkey. Its a bit pricey if you can afford it but the food, service, drinks, even the ambiance and entertainment made it perhaps the best restaurant I have been to thus far since living in Orlando since 2008. Definitely recommend it."

  • "Ambience is fun, the wait staff is very fast and attentive. This is the 2nd time we ate here. Decided to give it another chance, due to the other restaurants had a long wait. The sushi, again, was soggy. We eat out at sushi restaurants all the time. Their sushi is a NO GO. The rice they overcook and it tastes like mush as soon as you put it in your mouth. The grouper says encrusted, it was not. It was THE FISHIEST grouper I had, 1 bit and I had to spit it out. For people that eat out 4-5 times a week, this is a place that is in a great location, great name & business model but the menu and food has to be revamped. Restaurant Rescue, I'd say."

  • "I chose to entertain our largest international customer here; we were a group of 12. Everything was extremely slow to the point my customers thought it was comical. 30 minutes after ordering appetizers, they were finally delivered. What's more, it took an hour and 45 minutes after ordering our meals to deliver the first of our party's meal and the last of the 12 meals came 28 minutes after the first. Many drink requests went ignored and when the check came, they not only had the audacity to add a 20% tip, they only offered to remove a single bottle of wine for our having to wait. In all, what should have been a two to two and a half hour event was a four hour ordeal. Avoid, avoid, avoid!!"

  • "The wait staff was knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly. The delay for food on an uncrowded night was disappointing to unacceptable. The sushi rice was dry, they could not even offer ice tea to one of our group and did not offer to make any. The first wine requested from the menu of this wine bar was unavailable. In short, disappointing."

  • "Went on a Saturday night at 6. We were the some of the only people in the restaurant and the staff was setting up for a big party. Many of the menu items seemed way overpriced, so we ordered the sushi special for two, which was awesome! A tremendous marriage of flavors and spices. It was fantastic. The restaurant just didn't have a good atmosphere because it was so empty."

  • "We went here New Years Eve. Open Table did not know there was a set fee of $50 for a station buffet - no regular menu. That being said it was a great array of different food. We also looked at the menu and we would go back there for a regular meal. The service was great when we first got there but as the night went on it degraded to poor. There was a very high energy DJ before the show. The floor show was female impersonators and it was really fun. We stayed for two of the three shows and it was one of the most upbeat New Year's Eves we have had in years. I would highly recommend this spot. Some people were offended by the show , just so you know."

  • "Our evening started fine - nice seats outside and service was pleasant and fairly quick for drinks. They were out of multiple items on the menu because of a big party, which was disappointing. We ordered our food (including some small plates), and then it was like they forgot about us completely! We sat there for at least 20 minutes with no one coming to say the status of the food etc. I am pretty patient but one of my friends had enough so we left some money for our drinks and left. Lots of other restaurants in the area - don't waste your time on this one."
