Extremely accommodating,especially if you have booked in advance. Great ambiance.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic establishment with charmMonkey Bar is a classic NYC establishment. I experienced it for the first time on a Friday evening and I was taken by its charm. I walked through the crowded bar room towards the dining room where not a soul was seated. Perplexed, I made my way back to the bar to order a drink. Not liking any of the cocktails on the menu, I asked the bartender to make me a martini. It took some convincing, but I managed to persuade my dining companion to eat in the bar room instead of the desserted dining room. I ordered the Monkey Bar Burger, which was deliciously cooked to perfection. My dining companion ordered the Fettuccine Carbonara, which was divine once I was able to get my fork in for a bite. Only downside is the high prices.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a visit just to seeWorth a visit just to see the spectacular restoration of the original decor. It also helps that the food happens to be quite good and reasonably enough priced considering the setting.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my new favorite restaurants.One of my new favorite restaurants.
