Established in 1936, Monkey Bar was returned to its former glory in 2009 by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter.

The dining room's lush red leather banquettes and dim, attractive lighting have restored the fizzy thrill of dining in a restaurant - both attractive and cozy - and harken back to a bygone era when a gentleman never left the house without a tie and a lady always had a pair of white gloves in her purse.

Monkey Bar's menu boasts American classics alongside seasonal dishes using sustainable and organic products whenever possible.

The dinner menu was adjusted, moving from the traditional American flavor to spices not so American per se. Disappointing.

We visited the Monkey Bar on the evening of 30th December, there was no atmosphere in the restaurant, service poor and the presentation of food shocking, I’ve had better service at a fast food restaurant. The experience felt like this restaurant is facing difficult times with no care and attention offered to customers from staff that are clearly not interested.
