My last time to take guests to this Ko O’lina area restaurant. Menu is too eclectic and restaurant is too loud to enjoy a conversation despite being in one of the quietest sections upstairs.
Amazing service. Delicious food. I couldn’t ask for more.
Most of your menu choices are too exotic and too high priced.
Excellent mai tai, need to improve on the pizza
Exceptional customer service. We are here on vacation from LA. First night had the Big Island Cheese Burger. One of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted and I’ve eaten many burgers in 52 years. The French fries came lukewarm. My server replaced them with fresh right away.
Second experience - Fish & Chips.
Fish tempura style and excellent.
French fries came lukewarm again. Not sure why the kitchen can’t time them better for freshness.
We will most definitely return on our next visit.
This place has a really good vacation vibe.
Food is slightly overpriced in my opinion but tasted good.
We got catch of the day and macadamia crusted mahi mahi.
As an appetizer we got a plate with poke and it was really delicious.
Cocktails are top notch
Food was great and our server was the best!! Shandell let my dad joke with her all night - lots of times servers don’t know how to take my corny dad but she jumped right in. Food was great- I’m not drinking right now but the righteous path drink was delicious!
Outdoor ambiance was great- live music was amazing!
Best mai tai ever with a purée of passion fruit on it.
No matter the time or day you go to Monkeypod you get great service and food! Bloody mary’s, bacon and a blue cheese crumbles started off our afternoon. A wonderful cheese pizza.. the dough is amazing and great bartenders more than happy to serve you whatever you desire. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone! Lots of great choices and food!
We had lunch with a large family group on Sunday. Service was good, as always, as was the food. However, we were disappointed to learn that the restaurant is no longer offering Sunday brunch. No one could explain why, and we certainly couldn't understand it since every time we've gone there for Sunday brunch the restaurant has been very busy. We'll really miss our favorite brunch place in Koolina!
Very good service n waitress was ver accimadating. Price was reasonable
Great food, service, ambiance. Had minor problem with orderly check in. Had party jump the line.
The Ko Olina food scene improve dramatically when Monkeypod opened and I am forever grateful. For years vacationers in the area were limited to the expensive options at the hotels and resorts across the street. I'm thankful to have Monkeypod as a local favorite, and when I discovered their awesome happy hour deal on appetizers and pizza, good became better. On this trip I took two guests that were joining me on vacation and they loved the happy hour options and, of course, the amazing Mai Tais. The pumpkin raviolis are excellent. The corn chowder is good, the pizza tasty. I don't think there's anything bad on the menu.
Fun, good food. Limited choices in kolina.
Fresh local made with 💕
Overall a great place. Went 2 times over the span of 4 nights while staying at Aulani. Great Food, Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful waitstaff. Only downside is even though we had reservations and were returning, the hostess/Jr. manager treated us like she was doing us a favor getting us a table and was outright rude. MonkeyPod is great but they need to continue to focus on the customer experience in order to have people pay premium prices.
Very convenient to Ko O’lina properties although a bit loud for being able to talk easily at table when music is playing even when seated upstairs. Food was only average this visit.
It was our anniversary celebration and we were comped Champagne and desert which was a nice surprise!
Great vacation dinner with the whole family!
Always fantastic, we go to the 'pod at least 4-5 times whenever we visit. Great service, staff, vibes.
We have been here twice, once for a special occasion and another for apps and happy hour. The deviled eggs are a MUST, so delicious! The pie is also a must, so be sure to keep room for dessert!
It doesn’t worth the money you spend there
Great food and service
We went twice while we were there! Great service! Delicious food and worked around our food sensitivities! Can’t wait to come back on our next holiday.
We were seated in the bar next to a waterfall. Between the noise of the bar and the waterfall we could not hear one another. The waterfall also smelled like an indoor swimming pool that had just been treated. I thought with a reservation we would be seated in a better area, but the past two reservations I have made at Monkeypod I have been seated at the worst tables.
Always a favorite restaurant. Great food and wonderful service.
Food was over priced and just okay. Menu looked amazing, was interested in a restaurant that was farm to table. We most likely will not go back.
Had another wonderful experience at Monkeypod!! Thank you for being consistent in quality and service!
Delicious food and drinks with great happy hour pricing
They didnt have sprite or noodles available which seemed odd. Limited kids food options and quality and variety of food was not very good. Need to revamp menu options to include more vegetarian and healthier options. Ambience and service were great.
Excellent restaurant and wait staff. Food can get pricey with add in and substitutions but the quality is very good. Something for literally everyone.
Went during happy hour was the best food! Loved the ravioli!! The service was amazing, I felt like family! Thank you Robert for the awesome service!
This was my first time ! Amazing service good food great ambience
Food is only ok and overpriced. Appetizer never came. Hawaiian vibe is the only plus to this restaurant. Disappointing and not going back.
The food was fantastic! It’s a bit on the expensive side, but worth it for the whole experience.
Waitress never came to refill drinks or water. Rarely came over to check on how we were doing. Fries were soggy.
