Back Door Monkey is wanted. The 1940’s war inspired restaurant has come to show Miami who’s now running the town. Escaping from Japan and wanted for treason, there’s more to Back Door Monkey than what meets the eye. Although Back Door Monkey is highly wanted, he assures us that once you enter his restaurant/bar, you’ll switch forces and join his side because you’ll never want to leave. “You are either with me or against me,” he states with such confidence because he knows you will not be able to resist the Japanese cuisine, cultivated cocktails, and upbeat music, offered at Back Door Monkey.

This was my first Miami Spice dinner this year and I’m glad I started with Back Door Monkey! What a cool ambience. And the food was so fresh and delicious. Read the captions on the pics.

We booked a reservation and they sat us at a small high top which was surprising and uncomfortable. After we asked for a low top, the manager came out and seated us at a low top and gave us a round of champagne to apologize for the mixup. After that, the service was great. The food was incredible, especially the pork belly and crab roll. Would recommended and come back!

The service from the host to the waitress was poor, slow… the restaurant was supposed to be open until 3am and they said everything is close and last call of drinks and food before 11:45.

We had read that the service here was subpar and they were correct. We could not get anyone over to take our order for so long despite it being pretty empty for a Thursday night
The food was pretty good nothing to “wow” a little too salty
The spicy margs we ordered both times came not spicy and it seemed like they were annoyed to fix this
One of the waitresses was particularly rude but she wasn’t ours we just had an encounter with her by the restroom so it’s ok
Our last dish had a hair in it and the manager was very kind about it
Overall I would say save your time and check out mayami or any other new place in wynwood there is a ton

A good place to go for a night out with friends, the quality of the food was alright but the DJ was good and the interior design was cute and insta worth.

Decor was amazing! but host was very disorganized and didn’t accommodate our table reservation; we had a little push back until we got sat to our original table. Service great and sushi rolls were yum. Too loud of a place for dinner.

The concept is different it’s a fun clubby vibe and music was great. I was a little disappointed at the food, the meat was dry and it lacked some flavor. The cocktails were good but service wasn’t great, no one came to refill our water glasses or ask us if we wanted a second drink during our meal.

great decor and vibe. food options were limited, but each item we ordered was very good. cocktail menu could use some more diversity, but again, each drink we ordered was made well and tasted good. service was friendly and attentive, despite a busy evening.

Food is great, ambiance is cool, it’s a too loud for intimate conversation at least when I ate and the DJ was playing. Will be back for late night food and drinks and vibes.
