    The restaurant was too loud and busy. Loses ambience even with entertainment. Tables are too close together, everybody rubbing elbows. We ordered white rice to sub instead of mash rice was cold. The fish mahi crusted mac nuts and seared ahi was delicious. Lobster overcooked and tough. The ribeye was undercooked more rare than med rare. The server didn’t check back with us after the meal was delivered. Honestly over priced for what you get.

    This was our second time after a 5-year break at Monkeypod Kitchen. We were surprised to still get a reservation for 2 on Mother’s Day, which also coincided with a birthday. Our request for outdoor seating was honored as we were assigned a very nice spot on the lush and quieter patio. Cocktail orders were taken, specials as well as menu items already running low explained by our waiter, all to our satisfaction. We shared the Poke Tacos as a starter, which hit the spot. While the Fish Sandwich as well as the Mixed Greens salad were just OK, the Cheeseburger ordered “medium”, unfortunately, came out “well done” and tasted pretty dry and bland, despite a bit of kimchi condiment. Service was friendly but also just standard and not what we remembered from our first visit. Would we visit again? Likely not given the price tag (e.g. $18 cocktails, $19 burger) and better options for a casual dinner, including several great food truck options in the area nowadays.

    Our hamburger and fish sandwich were very good, the fries were tasty, although we prefer crispier fries. This did not prevent us from leaving our plates empty. Mai Tai is also very good. We had the strawberry cream pie for dessert, which was good and fresh like everything we had. My faves are still the coconut cream or banana cream pies. Really, you can’t go wrong with the pies. Service was excellent, hostess and waitress were attentive. It was nice to hear live music during our lunch as many places only have music in the evening. It’s a very different ambiance during lunch than dinner, which we prefer and hope to enjoy again soon.

    We had a reservation for four and the host tried to sit us at a table for 8 outside, even though there were two tables for 4 open nearby. After some back and forth, they gave us one of the tables for four. Most of the food was pretty good, although the seafood special (Amberjack) was overcooked and dry.

    This was the worst restaurant experience I have ever had. First, they make you wait in a parking lot even though there is a full bar inside. If the parking lot guards grant you permission to get a drink at the bar while you wait, you have to follow very strict instructions about where you can stand and where and how to order. Stuffy and uncomfortable. We made the reservation for 8:30. When making it, we were not informed in any way that the pizza oven would be down for scheduled maintenance at 8:00 that night. We were coming for the pizza. They heavily advertise the pizza (and the imported 00 flour they use). When we got to the parking lot, we saw a sign saying that all pizzas needed to be ordered by 8:00, due to the scheduled maintenance. So, we thought we got lucky when they seated us early at 7:45. However, when we asked the server if we could put in a pizza right away, she just stared at us like we were idiots and said “it’s too late.” No apology. We told her the sign said 8:00 but she insisted that the kitchen had told her 7:45. They refused to make us a pizza and told us to come back another night. If you are a pizza restaurant, I’d suggest not scheduling oven maintenance for a time when you are open for dinner service. Then, we tried to order a bottle of wine from the wine menu, but they didn’t have it. So we got a different bottle. The server came back and poured it into a visibly dirty glass. She noticed and went to get a new one. While she was gone, we realized that the second glass (which had a full wine pour in it) was also dirty. When we told her, she claimed it was not dirty and that it was just “water stained.” We explained that we were not comfortable drinking the dirty wine and she rolled her eyes and said very aggressively “fine! I’ll go get a new bottle.” We no longer felt comfortable and left.

    Aloha, We're deeply sorry for the negative experience you had during your visit to our restaurant. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the scheduling of maintenance during your reservation time and the miscommunication regarding pizza orders.

Your feedback is valuable, and we will address these concerns internally to prevent similar incidents in the future. We understand your frustration and hope to have the opportunity to make things right if you choose to dine with us again. Mahalo, Danny Uriostegui Monkeypod Kitchen Restaurant Manager
