Monkeypod Kitchen - Ko Olina
Our restaurants are founded upon a passion for craft and we are dedicated to mastering the craft of food, drink, and merrymaking…with Aloha! Our menu features fresh island fish, hand tossed pizzas from our kiawe wood burning oven, and homemade pies made from scratch.
Thirty-six craft beers served at twenty-nine degrees are on tap, representing the coldest beer and best selection of microbrews on the island. Our culinary cocktails feature unique ingredients such as acai spirit, coconut water, and Kula lavender. Our passion for craft also extends to our diverse wine list, which emphasizes sustainability, drinkability and fun.
Happy hour is the way to go to make the cost reasonable while enjoying the al fresco atmosphere.
Great food, great service. Good energy.Way too noisy for me with band. A little noisy otherwise.
The food was excellent. Our server was very attentive with a great sense of humor. Loved it. We’ll be back
Food was fantastic and the Mai Tai was memorable! They had live music during lunch. Definitely will return!
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.
The food was fantastic, we went there again for lunch the next day.
Great food! Server was spot on. Would like to go back again! The mai tai is amazing!
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.
We always enjoy a great meal.
Food was really good. Was a great option compared to the expensive resort restaurants
Great mai tais! Food was solid. Live music was a nice touch.
Kid’s burger overcooked. Bulgogi pork tacos too salty, only thing good was the fish and chips.
It was a vibe
Great service from Kendra! Great attention to detail with multiple food allergies. Terrific restaurant.
We visited Monkeypod multiple times during our stay in Ko Olina. It is one of our favorites. Great food, service, and ambiance. Would definitely recommend.
Great meal and loved the strawberry pie!!
Always a great time at Monkeypods in Ko'Olina. Terrific food, friendly, attentive staff and a great atmosphere. We drove from Waikiki Beach to eat here!!
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.
Always one of the most enjoyable dining experiences one can have. Great, locally sourced foods with great service and ambiance. Consistently good food prep and value. Katrina, our sever, did a fantastic job.
Great food, live music, fun atmosphere. On the resort side of the island so it’s in a very nice area.
Anniversary free pie
Great food, great drinks, lovely music!! This is a favorite lunch spot and it didn’t disappoint .
We arrived a few minutes before Happy Hour and were asked if we’d like to wait a few minutes to take advantage of the specials on Happy Hour. Great Happy Hour menu and the food and drinks were fabulous!
I went for an anniversary and birthday
Simply awesome. Food fab, atmosphere amazing and very attentive staff. What more do you need for a top night out.
Our waiter was so nice and helpful!! The food is always tasty!!!
Great spot for dinner with the family while on vacation. Good vibes and great food.
Great experience! Good food, service, and close to our resort. We’re going back!
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).
Great service and food was amazing! So glad to visit Monkeypod!
Server was great but food was over priced. Accommodated a kids dish that was not in the menu which was very nice!
Mai Tai is good. But food was not good...
