Great date night out. Amazing food service atmosphere drinks etc. The prices are a bit inflated which is somewhat to be expected in a resort area like this

On vacation and heard great reviews. Food and ambiance delivered. From appetizers to main course. We had the lobster deviled eggs, and the seafood. It was excellent. A bit pricey but the food and service delivered. Would go again on special occasion.

We loved Monkeypox and will return for brunch and dinner another night during our 2 week vacation in KoOlina. MaiTai and kale salad my favorites,friends liked mushroom pizza, and fish and chips too.

Last night of our Aulani vacation. Dined here with the whole family. The wait was long but the service was accommodating. Most of the dishes we tried were good, not great. I had a curry fish stew. Quite tasty, but I counted exactly three chunks of fish in the whole bowl-- and it was like $30! These folks know that if you're staying in Ko Olina, you're screwed for dining options and they take full advantage of that.

That said, the guitarist performing on the patio (Big John?) was truly spectacular and worth every overpriced entree. Go grab a few beers and listen to him some night if nothing else.
