It was a great experience. Our waiter was great and very helpful when needed. We had a +1 after eating for an hour and they were very accommodating to her. The environment was great, food was great and so was service.

Sat outdoors and it was raining. They had umbrellas up, but in between the umbrellas it leaked and dropped water on the tables and chairs. The server hardly came to check on us - took her a while to get our drinks refilled and had to wait until we were completely done with our meal to get our check. When we got the check it took her a while to process it and return back to us.

They have a captive audience with the lack of options in Ko Olina. It was packed as usual, parking is a challenge, and they aren’t well prepared for rain. Food was fine - not bad not great.

I was excited to come here to celebrate with friends and family for my boyfriends job promotion & a friends birthday this last Friday night. We were all extremely disappointed with the service. Ive been a server for almost 10 years, and after being told to try monkeypod over and over again by my coworkers, it was a complete let down. The server almost seemed irritated with us the entire time we were there. We weren’t told the specials until we asked, he would only take a few drink orders at a time, walking away without the rest of the table ordering their drinks, and he seemed annoyed anytime we asked for anything. The food was okay, and sitting upstairs the ambiance was cool, but just based on the horrible service, we won’t be coming back. Not to mention, they didn’t do one thing to acknowledge either celebration.

入店からハッピーアワー終了まで30分しかありませんでしたが、お酒もお料理もハッピーアワーでいただけました。ボリュームがあり過ぎないのも色々とたべられて良かったです!
通常メニューのアヒも半生で美味しかったです。

The atmosphere at Monkeypod is great. They have a nightly singer and we had the pleasure of being able to hear him play on two separate occasions. He was excellent. The food is over priced for what you get. The fish and chips were 3 small pieces and were overcooked leaving the fish dried out. The pizza is good as are the fish tacos. The lobster devil eggs were ok but overpriced. You get 2 eggs for $18.95.

Unfortunately, I have to say the food was not up to my expectations for a Merriman restaurant. Considering the prices, I'd have to say that you could get much better food for a better value at other establishments in the area (Ko olina and Kapolei).
