Service slow but rushed if such a thing. Rarely checked in and was rushed when she did. I think adding an extra server on Saturday nights would serve everyone better. Drinks were great and creative. Sushi was fresh and tasty. fun ambiance.

Very unique and incredible sushi. Great cocktails. Ambience in the rooms near the bar are great. I didn’t think it was loud in there as I had read in other reviews and it was crowded. Very professional service.

I search cuisine like this out, and, just like a night behind closed doors, my better half was all "yeah... ok" on our way there, but left thrilled and excited.
The cocktails were inventive, the food was inspired, and that also might have been the best sushi roll I've eaten in a decade (the 68).
So glad we did this for our night out

As usual, Monkey68 delivers on all fronts. The beautiful plating and the savory taste only add to the great service and ambiance that is being provided at all times. If you happen to be lucky enough to come in at a time that Liem could be your server, then please do not miss out on the opportunity to have a great meal provided by someone who is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Japanese cuisine. Will definitely be returning in the near future!

Let me first start off by stating I HATE writing reviews like this. I live in the Roswell area and prefer to frequent local businesses. There's lots of really good restaurants in this area and unfortunately this isn't one of them :-(. Booked reservation for party of 2 for a special occasion on Saturday. Valet lot was full so had to park quite a distance away. No biggie. We were promptly seated at a corner table in the upstairs dining room. Lots of selections on the menu and waitress was friendly. Ordered two apps, sashimi platter, nigiri platter, roll, and a couple glasses of wine. Here's what you need to REALIZE - the kitchen is tapas style so every portion is 1/2 size of other comparable fusion Asian restaurants. $15 ribs (appetizer) are barely adequate for one person. Sashimi and nigiri was fresh and tasty however two pieces of sashimi here are equivalent to one elsewhere. Wine selection is totally uninspiring and pours are very skimpy. Service was commendable and we were not rushed. That's positive. Not a chance in hell to hold a conversation without seriously having to raise your voice as the place is EXTREMLY LOUD. Stone floors and walls so sound bounces everywhere. Lots of tables packed into the floorspace also contributed to this. Lastly, NO RECOGNITION of special occasion although it was noted in reservation and communicated to hostess. With as many restaurants choices out there this is without a doubt a SKIP. Bill was $145 sans gratuity and we left wanting more food (we're not big eaters either). Sad, sad experience.

Bottom line, it's very good option for sushi in the area, however some missed details that does not make this place a premier place for dining in metro Atlanta. If you want to present a stature like other premier restaurants in metro Atlanta, you can't miss the small details when it comes to fine dining. Yes Monkey68 is a casual, fun environment but the prices can be aligned with some of Atlanta's bigger and more expensive establishments.

Unfortunately, the value does not meet expectations when aligned with the price points. Yes sushi in general is an item that you will overpay for but the prices here did not match the quality, service and, frankly, the hype. Management was not very caring about the missed details, that was a HUGE disappointment.

While our server was very nice she forgot some details which I will inform management about privately. If we return, we won't use the valet, it was a disaster getting out of the place. They had only one guy working on a Saturday night is not good (nice guy but had his hands full). Not sure if that's on the restaurant or the valet company, but either way that was a big mistake. A small lot for valet plus entrances/exits not wide enough for two cars = bad situation.

Here's the F&B breakdown:

Bar service: very quick and to expectations
Dumplings: tasty but nothing special that you haven't had before

Selfie roll: very fresh & vibrant but did not come across as one-of-a kind
Sex on the beach: best of the pack, spicy tuna did not disappoint
Double decker: a bit heavy and hard to eat once it was sitting on our table
Whoa-cano: wife loved it

So basically 2 of 4 rolls were very good, 1 was good, 1 was not.

While the food was good, the pricing is fairly high for the portions. They consider them small plates to share, which I enjoy, however I did not consider the quality high enough for the cost per portion. Some of the dishes lacked the level of flavor/spice I would expect from the descriptions.

The ambience we enjoy, the food and drinks great...but this time service was very slow. It was crowded that night, but we had never experienced such a delay in service at the table as we did that Wednesday...we had friends with us for the first time there and we were just sorry it took so long to get our food.

This was our last hurrah at the end of the summer before the kids went back to school. It was an interesting and eclectic place with excellent sushi and a creative craft cocktail menu! Service was wonderful and the staff genuinely seemed to care about the patrons. We found the menu to be a little on the high priced side, but the sushi is as fresh as can be and the chef seems to be an expert. Impressive.

Food was great! Probably best sushi we have had in the city. Very fresh as well. Ambiance was great too! Food service was good, but drink service was a little slow. Had to ask several times about our drinks. Regardless, we will definitely routine and make it a common place for sushi! Will definitely recommend to other people too!
