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.
Very nice restaurant. Shaded outdoor seating, great bar. The service is excellent, and the food is tasty. As with most restaurants on the island, the prices are high.
Good location. Open air seating. Food good, but way overpriced & limited selection
Good food, good service, excellent Mai Tai, patio dining with live music, a little expensive but they split our meal nice for us. Would definitely go back.
We asked to move tables because the sun was hitting on us directly. It was super hot. Thanks for accommodating us. Wished there was sun shades or maybe server could have asked if we were okay with the sun hitting directly to us?
The noodle named of saiman was so bad. And most foods were salty.
Best food, best service, nicest people- Seriously! We love this place and go every night when on the West Shore of Oahu - always grateful!
Great food and service.
Five star! Food was excellent. Love the FTT concept. Well executed. Service was outstanding.
It was amazing!
Took shuttle from our Ko Olina hotel, very convenient. Had a nice dinner at Monkeypod. Food was much better than I remembered from last vacation. The musician was very good. Our waitress was awesome.
This is an excellent island experience that you can have on each of the major Hawaiian islands. Merriman has taken the local farm to fork concept and made it a palatable way to enjoy a fusion of seafood, vegetables, and local organic products in a beautiful space with island atmosphere. Monkeypod has a presence on The Bid Island of Hawaii, Maui, Oahu and Kauai. I've been to each one and enjoyed them all with multiple items from the menu. Enjoy the experience, Aloha Mahalo'
Good food and drinks.
As always food was amazing and service was fantastic
Thank you again to all
We love Monkeypod Kitchen in Ko Olina. We try to make it during happy hour and open table reservations makes it easy for us. The food and ambience were great. However the service needs improvement, specifically our waitress. Our waitress was not meeting a deserving tip amount. She checked-in with us once, she didn’t know if it was happy hour, and I had to flag her down so I could order another drink. She’s very social as I have observed her talking to passersby. Tonight, we were disappointed with the service. Our past experience have been exceptional, our waitress or waiters were attentive and provided exceptional service such as reminders for last call on food orders and frequent check-ins. I hope this was a fluke and next time our waitress or waiter will be better.
Food drinks and atmosphere are fantastic. Sometimes reservations are needed, that was ok. Great experience.
Excellent food and service, but prices are about 20% higher than I would have expected for the dishes we ordered.
Portion sizes need to get larger, or prices get a lot smaller. Of the 3 items on our ticket we left still hungry and we are small people.
The sun was in our eyes 90% of our meal. It made our dinner uncomfortable and a bit warm from the sun beating down on us. They need some shades.
I live in Ko Olina and visit the Mokeypod kitchen often especially when I have visitors in town. It never disappoints me; the food is always great and the service is friendly and you can't beat the atmosphere there. Their happy hour is a great value and they serve really good pizzas. For desert try their coconut pie it is delicious.
Angelica was amazing and best service on island! Good was fantastic as well!
Service was great. Our server gave us suggestions that were great. Started with the raw sampler for the appetizer. Really good. The pizza's were really good. A little in the pricey side but worth it.
All members of the serving team know their roles and they get after their jobs, poetry in motion!
Amazing drinks and food! The poke tacos and pumpkin squash were our favorites! Definitely going back! And soon!
Monkeypod is a great place to go at Ko Olina....but, go for Happy Hour. Most of the apps are half price with some nice discounts on wine, beer and drinks. The setting is nice, especially upstairs. If you're staying in the Ko Olina resort, take the shuttle to the restaurant....parking is very limited.
Wonderful meal on a lovely lanai with great service.
What a wonderful last night in Hawaii!!!!
The food was exceptional and delicious. I had the Ahi special, with amazing jalapeño mashed potatoes. I’ve never had it before, but will try to get the recipe.
A special thanks to the hostess/manager/do everything, Stephanie. Our asked about the name of the flowers on the tres outside the main entrance she not only told us, but went outside and brought back two for the women at the table. What a wonderful treat on our last night. That was a special effort that we will never forget. Stephanie is a rare breed and a special person.
I expect to pay a premium in Hawaii, but the amount of food for the price doesn’t make it worth it.
Excellent service, our waitress was very friendly. The food was absolutely, amazingly delicious, from the appetizers to the main course and desserts. The music was very enjoyable, it was soothing to hear and played an intrical part in completing the atmosphere. I would highly, highly recommend anyone and everyone to dine here. Thank you so much for your aloha and attention to detail. Because of you, we had a fabulous, romantic, and enjoyable evening.

My whole experience at the restaurant was great! They're located in Ko Olina which is on the west side of Oahu and far from the heavily trafficked Waikiki area. I enjoyed the change in pace and calmer area. The food tasted great! We had the skirt steak and the seafood pasta =)
Only downside is no air conditioning. Food is amazing!
Always great food and service. They really treated us well as we were celebrating a special occasion.
Great server and good food!
Great vibe, great live music, great food! Would recommend it if you’re in the area.
We enjoyed ourselves very much!
Good was good, not great. Server warned my wife that the Mai Tai was very strong. Though she is no lightweight, it was too strong to drink. Otherwise, I’d go back, though wouldn’t be our first choice.
My only complaint was I wish there was an air conditioned area to sit in. Additionally, I would love to see more vegetarian and vegan options.
Fantastic meal, outstanding live music by Izik, and the food was incredible! We has the burger and the mahi mahi tacos — both highly recommended
We ate there for dinner. The food was awesome! It was so fresh and had great flavors. Our server was excellent. Loved the coconut pie!!
Great good and service! Atmosphere was beautiful. Casual yet upscale menu
