Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman - Whalers Village
Great food and service
Excellent food and service. A fun place to visit and dine. Highly recommended!
Made advanced reservations for a Valentine’s Day dinner for two and the 5:15pm slot was open.
Upon arrival, the place was packed and people waiting outside. Was greeted warmly and given a pager as our table was not ready. About a 20 minute wait and we were seated. There was live music, a bar and open air.
The menu reflected the nature of this restaurant as more of a bar and very casual restaurant. Food choices were typical of bar food and just a few dinner type selections.
The noise level was very high maybe because of the live music and bar that conversation could only take place at a high volume. Not what I was hoping for.
The service was decent and our order was delivered quickly. All food was pretty good. Then we had their signature dessert, strawberry cream cheese pie. Was pretty good but not worth the $11 price tag.
Also, I saw on the menu that all checks will reflect a 2% service charge for the kitchen staff. Don’t know about that, not sure I agree. I used to work in food and beverage and never had a service charge given to me.
Was nice but not enough to bring me back.
We visited the Monkeypod on
Valentines day. It was very busy but our service was excellent. Our server,Angel, gave us excellent descriptions of the cocktails and specials. We had the seafood special of monchong and shrimp which was delicious. Our only complaint would be that it was a bit noisy but it was a very busy evening and the restaurant was full.
I always eat too much here! All the food is delicious! The service is very attentive which is greatly appreciated. Open air and the vibe in the restaurant is humming! Have to try the mai-tais!
My wife and I enjoyed a nice Valentines dinner, and Matt provided especially excellent service.
Great place. Best Mai Tais in the islands. Would recommend it for sure!
So yummy. Pumpkin raviolis were to die for! I ordered an extra plate just for me 😬
We thought the food was good, service ok, loved the atmosphere.
Delicious food and great service. Loved the live music and the friendly staff. Don’t miss the yummy Mai Tai!!
Great food & good service. Lovely music.
I never write reviews but this evening was perfect. Very accommodating with our wheat allergy, the drinks were awesome, music great and overall just a good time.
I highly recommend The pumpkin ravioli it was delicious. Our server Britney made us feel comfortable immediately and the manager Kinsey came by to greet us also. Overall it was a wonderful evening. Will go back again next year.
Great experience, food was absolutely delicious and we’ve already made another reservation to come back!
Great staff and food
The food was delicious. We ordered some off of the happy hour menu and some from the regular menu. Enjoyed it so much that we returned the next day. Service was great and would defiantly recommend.
Good food, but not the place to go for a relaxing meal with your sweetie.
We went to dinner here during our honeymoon. We loved that we could walk to the restaurant from the hotel. The food was delicious and the strawberry cream pie was to die for!
We were given the recommendation by several friends and we would definitely recommend Monkeypod. Super lively & fun atmosphere with the best Mai Tai’s! I don’t even drink Mai Tai’s and they are delicious. Had the fish tacos which were fresh & delicious. Had a beautiful view of the ocean, live music, and our waiter was friendly, didn’t rush us even though the place was packed. Will go back every time we are in Maui.
Way too noisy...
Three of us ordered fish and chips, which was barely average. Our fourth enjoyed the fish tacos, which were good!
Pizza wasn’t as hot as should be
Forgot my drink order
Otherwise decent food and service
Always a great time at Monkey Pod! The food is always delicious and the atmosphere is fun. Always recommended to anyone that tells me they are going to Maui.
Ordered a mushroom pizza with pepperoni & the pizza had 2 mushrooms on it. Had to send it back. Very loud & crowded. Drinks are very small. Bartenders very rude.
The pizza is excellent, I think that if there were a few more types of pizza to choose from I would visit the restaurant more often.
Great food and excellent service. I will go back for sure.
Way too loud a place for me....
We were there for Happy Hour specials. We were given a good table near the oceanfront. We shared some appetizers which were good not great. My husband really liked their Infamous Mai Tais. The restaurant has a great island feel but is very noisy.
Great food. Great service
Great restaurant. Wonderful selections and great wine list. Good vibe and very friendly service.
Went at Happy Hour when appetizers and pizza were half price! The best!
Great place for drinks, appetizers or a meal. Very good food and service. Mai Tais are a crowd pleaser. Happy hour specials are not to be missed. Bacon & shrimp pizza, mushroom potstickers. Very good.
