It was a good experience, very nice and we had an amazing waiter. The food was okay. The food seem charred and had a bit of a burnt taste to it but wasn’t too bad. Other than that, great service, great atmosphere and amazing ambiance.

My wife and I had the lobster seafood medley for our anniversary dinner. $50. each. Noodles were all stuck together,mixed with tomato paste, and the lobster was about 3 inches long and cooked as tough as a piece of rope.Will not come back

Great atmosphere, value of food extremely high for amount of food you get, table was ready close to time of reservation, but took an hour before food was served. Way too long when you have 3 small kids.

I arrived late from traffic and they were very accommodating still, and had the table ready within 5-10 even though it was packed for Valentine’s Day. The server was awesome as well!

Food never disappoints at Monkeypod; it is always excellent. Service is friendly and helpful.
Very noisy though, and usually has live music playing.

Went for happy hour, great table by window listening to wonderful live music and had an attentive waitstaff that keeps coming around to push drinks. Really disappointed with the food...crust on pizza was really soft, should be a little crispier. Not worth $19 regular price. The garlic fries again was pale colored, soggy and limp, how can any restaurant mess that up? My husband ordered the fish and chips, 3 small pcs with same limpy fries, definitely not worth $24.
Food was much better a couple of years ago................

My wife had the Fresh Gnocchi with Pork Sausage but some of the gnocchi was under cooked and mushy. She ended up eating it all except one piece because the server never returned to the table until it was bill time. A manager did end up stopping by and offered her a dessert but she is not a dessert eater. He said he would advise the kitchen and thanked us for coming in.

I think an invitation to return and try the gnocchi on his dime would have been more appropriate than a dessert.

Lovely spot for lunch or dinner. Sitting outdoors on a patio surrounded by greenery is my idea of a good time! Excellent drinks and nice brunch choices.

Very good Mai Tai, fish tacos and potstickers were very good. Music was a little loud but not obnoxious.
