It always amazing me that the focus with a resturant isn't on the first impression.The host staff should not just be a pretty face,but one with a service mind. We were greeted by 3 hosts & hostess at the door. The male host was good, we requested a warm table after coming in from the storm, he passed the menus to a female hostess who seemed a bit confused and was not friendly at all,she took us in to what I believe to be the coldest area of the resturant.(all glass area).We asked if there was something else.Low and behold the next choice was one table away from the fireplace, in the center of the resturant. Very nice cozy spot.Everything else went great.But honestly not sure I'll return to be "greeted" by this type of attitude.

Great Belgian place!
Great place! Lot's of options of beer and they are properly served in their glasses. Food was also very nice (although we just had appetizers...) Services was impeccable. Will definitely go back!

Second time in 2 weeks
Enjoyed the options so much we had to come back to try some more beers. Brought my mom, who is belgian, and she was very impressed with the selection of beers (and specially that they had many on tap and served in the appropriate glass) and the mussels. (although the portion was small compared to what they would serve in Belgium. Overall a great experience, good service, great location, lot's of options of food and beverages and great with the kids!

Prompt, friendly service. The food is ALWAYS fantastic. We've been to this local a few times since they opened and it's both time and money well spent for a meal.

We have been to the Cheeky Monk a number of times. Food is good and there is a fantastic variety of beers. I recommend it.

Great Food and Beer!
The menu choices were unique and oh so tasty! We ordered salads and enjoyed them with Belgian beers on the patio. Service was fantastic--friendly and prompt--yet they let us linger and enjoy the evening without feeling pressured to give up the table.

We enjoyed a dish of mussels and bangers & mash. Both were very good.

This is a Belgian Beer Cafe
This is a Belgian Beer Cafe so why have you limited your recommendations to only wine?

Great Beer Selection, Good Food
The Cheeky Monk is a place I go for its beer selection. The number of variety of Belgian brews on tap is truly impressive. Their food is good as well, but more kin to bar food than fine dining. I will say that I had the Abbot burger on this last visit and it was outstanding. My wife was taking bites from my plate all night instead of eating her steak (which was a little tough).

Better in some worse than other
The food quality isnt near as good as the downtown location, but the venue is top notch. I dont concern myself with the food too much, as the ale list is the draw, but the cassoulet downtown was amazing. We ordered it again and the meat was very dry. Wait staff was VERY slow to respond, but had a great attitude. I'm thinking they were short staffed.
I'll be back.
