good food good service fun night.
Service was great. Food was inconsistent. A burger was very over cooked and wings we just ok.. Pasta and lobster special was really good. Cocktails were great. Would try again sometime but this was not a memorable meal.
Great Thanksgiving dinner with live music and a Turkey feast!
Our server Auntie Sharon was a hoot. She was friendly and helpful. Saimin was so-so. Fish and chips were good. Kids burger was good. The star of the dinner was the strawberry pie and pumpkin cream pie. Good value compared to other Laihina area restaurants.
Wonderful meal and great waitress! Kamalei was a wonderful, cheerful young lady who gave us great service. It was truly a Thanksgiving to remember!
Soggy fries, sun very strong even though I requested shade
We had a lovely table with a view to the beach walk and the water. During our visit, one of the first whales of the 2021-2022 season was spotted, and we greatly enjoyed watching it. Our server was delightful and attentive. The food and the mai tais were delicious. The bonus for us is that our daughter with Celiac was able to eat safely without getting sick.
Such a nice restaurant and such friendly staff.. My Thai is the best in Maui!! We also had fish and chips and fish sandwich both were outstanding. Fish and chips specially stood out as it was better than the one i had in London and better than Gordon Ramsey fish and chips too
My husband and I enjoyed our Thanksgiving lunch here at Monkeypod. I especially loved the Margherita pizza because the dough was so soft and chewy. The local beers were refreshing and they went perfectly with the ocean view from the outdoor table we were seated at. I would definitely go again if I take another trip to Maui!
Thanksgiving! Terrific traditional fare. Twas great.
The restaurant itself is in an amazing location and the service was great! The food is fair. Some of their own flavors of ketchup and perhaps pizza sauce aren’t the best if you’re traveling with kids.
Makayla was our waitress and she was nothing but kind and wonderful throughout our meal! Her recommendations were on point!! My husband and I both said this was the best meal we had during our time in Kaanapali beach. Absolutely loved the poke tacos-we asked a fourth…IT WAS WELL WORTH IT! the food is outstanding! My husband had the tuna steak and I had the pumpkin squash ravioli-unreal. Everything is farm to table and you can really taste the quality and freshness. Run to monkeypods-it’s AMAZING!!!
It’s always a must eat at restaurant when we stay in Maui or any of the other islands where they have a Monkey Pod restaurant!
Justin was a great waiter. Fish and chips were amazing!
As usual everything was excellent. We were with a big group with three separate reservations. But they made sure that we all could seat together. They were very accommodating especially during this pandemic restrictions.
Mai Tais are delicious!
We always have a great dinner here. Excellent cocktails (mai tai & Manhattan) and Fish & Chips. Devin did a great job as our server. Promptly seated just after our reservation time. Highly recommended!
Very nice staff and beautiful place to have dinner. I ordered the fish Tavos with the sauce on the side because it was spicy. It was super spicy so we ordered mango salsa and it made it taste better. The drinks were really good and nice presentation.
Great dinner in festive atmosphere. We really enjoyed it.
Our server was great!! Food was delicious! We had a reservation and got seated immediately! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
We went here for our honeymoon, and loved it! Our server was a bit brash, but other than that it was fabulous! Happy hour is the way to go!
Outstanding ! Ahi steak and the strawberry pie were to die for !
Great drink and food options. The ravioli was especially delicious. Great ambience!
We had an amazing time at Monkeypod! Our server was fantastic and gave us excellent recommendations. We had the pumpkin ravioli, poke tacos, fish and chips, and fish sandwich. Everything is a 10/10 and we’d come back. My husband said the mai tai’s were the best he’s ever had. The lilikoi foam on top is 🤯
Everything from the ambiance to the food and Katie our server was perfect. Best meal we have had in Maui. Loved it.
Hated the seats we were in-
Direct sun facing the entire time and we’ve had reservations for months... walk ins got better seats ☹️
The fresh fish tacos had delicious flavors. The pineapple pork pizza was so yummy too.
Great service and view!
Great drinks, appetizers and food. Awesome environment
Never disappointed at Monkeyood. Hard to get in this visit as it’s really busy now with the reduced capacity. Food was delicious as were the cocktails. We will be back!
The menu hasn’t changed in a while, the food is good but not a lot of variety and prices were a bit steep. Our server wasnt great, which doesn’t help have a good experience.
My family of 10 made a reservation a couple months ago and when we arrived we were quickly seated.
Food and drinks were amazing along with the service! We’ll be back!
It was our best meal on Maui, views and vibe were fantastic and our server Kevin was so wonderful! Loved everything about this restaurant!
The hostess and the Mai tai was great! But the service and food definitely did not live up to the hype. Glad we crossed it off the list but wouldn’t go back.
