Requested and was provided with a lovely table with view of sunset. Great happy hour & great service. A very good value for the quality of the food & location.
Good Atmosphere, Good Foods & Drinks.
Wonderful place for Business meeting and Friends & family occasion. I wish thy can have more variety of foods.
Best Mai Tai in Maui! Food was awesome, really neat restaurant.
Our server, sorry. I don’t remember her name but she was awesome. Great attitude
Great place for happy hour
Great service but limited menu selections. Caesar salad greens were bitter with very little dressing. We tried three pizzas and they were all good but a bit overpriced fish tacos were great
We love this restaurant! Great food and the mai tai’s are to die for!
Tastiest Mai Tai on Kaanapali. Food is great. Brittany, our server, was sweet and efficient. Fun convos! Ambiance...the best! Definitely make a reservation on Open Table...otherwise you may be waiting long time!
GREAT RESTAURANT WITH A UNIQUE VIBE!
ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW. YOUR FAVOROITES WITH A TWIDT!
Great service. Great location. Excellent food. Fair price. Erica was our waitress and was outstanding.
Great my ties, delicious chicken wings and raviolis. I will return for those again!
Your seared Ahi has always been a fav!
Outstanding service! Made all the difference!
Food is decent but not amazing. The ahi tacos were very plain and lacked any flavor at all. At $42 for the Ahi I expected it to be a pure center cut, however it did have quite a bit of string on one of the pieces. The fish tacos were just okay, and the fish was a bit over cooked. My kids thought the kids burgers were just okay and were not happy with the homemade ketchup, but then again they are kids so that’s to be expected.
The cocktails are fantastic, so my advice is stay for the cocktails and skip the food.
Butternut squash is the best !!!!! Followed by the delicious chocolate pie
Great atmosphere, overlooking the beautiful ocean. The chicken wings and truffle fries were amazing. Had the Mahi Mahi fish and chips which were excellent. Overall a great evening!
Loved our waiter! We love this place
We went at Happy Hour and everything was superb. The best Mai Tais and pizza ever. The pumpkin ravioli is great. Service was so fast we hardly had time to eat before the next course arrived. The corn chowder is great and ahi perfect. And of course Strawberry pie. Yummy.
Great atmosphere! Happy hour! Amazing drinks & food! Very friendly staff! Highly recommend! We came back two days in a row! You will need a reservation!
Overall great table and nice open air ambience. The drinks were good but glad it was at happy hour prices. Had pumpkin ravioli, cheeseburger and pizza. Everything was tasty.
Delicious food and drinks. Loved the lilikoi drink. And great pizza
Awesome experience doesn’t get much better
This was another fine meal at Monkeypod, this one during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tables were nicely spaced, masked required, which was nice to see enforced.
I Started out with their Mai Tai which was excellent, I got the Fish Tacos as an appetizer which were prepared perfectly, and then the Mahi with pecan covering which was superb.
The chocolate pie was as good as ever.
Our servicer was superb.
While the meal came to over $100, it was a nice dining experience with a table close to the sunset which topped off the evening.
Since the pandemic, we haven’t been out. And before, We’ve been going to Monkeypod - Wailea which is closer to home but it’s been closed. Decided to book at the west side coz I know it’s a new location. Hassle to drive there but instead of eating at the Ritz Carlton for Valentine’s Day (small portions of food for high price!), I had no regrets making RSVP on open table. Always good food!!! Ambience is perfect outside. Distance of each table was well arranged because of the pandemic. Staff wearing masks as well as customers abiding the rules. Our server was energetic (I forgot her name), level of noise was high coz we’re in a mall (I see Louis Vuitton where I’m seating!) plus it’s Maui and it’s tourist season! anyway... everything iwas good! Perrrfecttt!!!! We the Ordered the Steak, kids burger (my son ate it all!!)... my favorite was the corn chowder and squash ravioli!!! Nom!! Nom! Nom!!! All of the food we ate was suppopeerrrrr delicious! Yes we will be back again.... but I hope the Wailea location will open soon too. Lastly, I hope Monkeypod company will offer discount for local people... it makes a difference too during these pandemic times. Thank you.
Went during happy hour. Good deals and the best Mai Tais!
Excellent service, excellent food, divine dessert!! Couldn't be happier with our choice to dine here. We will dream of the strawberry pie until we meet again!
First time here.... I have heard about Merriman’s excellence for years just hadn’t made it to one yet. Monkeypod was okay but nothing to rave about...quite expensive. Drinks were priced high enough we passed. Started with fries with a great mustard dip as our appetizer. Had fish & chips and fish tacos for entrees. Tacos tasted fresh but not especially flavorful. Had to peel extra breading off fish (fish & chips). Ended with “strawberry” pie...not labeled well but pretty. Actually a cream cheese pie (fluffy cheesecake) with a single layer of sliced strawberry on top. Slice to look pretty but when you try to eat it the slices slide off and leave sections with no strawberry. One and done...
Food was great as expected. Service was amazing staff was friendly and efficient. Thank you!
The best mai tai ever! Would love to see a salad in the happy hour menu.
The pumpkin ravioli is a must! I could have eaten 3 of those as just my entree and been happy!
Serena is one of the best servers we have had!
Food wise - bring potstickers and pork tacos back PLEASE!!!!
Best place on Maui. Don’t waste your time going anywhere else.
We actually went to Monkeypod twice during our trip. The food and service is amazing. Our server Erica was awesome! She was attentive, friendly, and so informative. We requested her Section on our 2nd reservation. The Lilikoi foam Mai Tais were so yummy. We are so happy Monkeypod is open and serving. We highly recommend trying it. Ask for Erica for an over the top- top notch experience!
