Monkeypod Kitchen - Wailea
Had the fish burger and fish and chips. Have had far better on Maui- and we expected better for the price. Raw fish was excellent.
Everything was fine but nothing special. The bar had a nice feel. The ambiance was the best thing about the place. The fish tacos and fish and chips were not as good as several other places we tried. Service was pleasant but a bit distracted.
Best Happy Hour we have had on Maui yet!! Excellent service and loved the background music.
Food was good , server was great but this is a really noisy place ....if you want to go and go crazy with a group or large family it’s perfect ....however if you want to try and have a conversation with friends or your partner pretty much impossible...so choose your reason for going or perhaps request a table outside...
Happy hour is the only true value. Drinks are over priced at 15 dollars for a cocktail. The food was adequate. Not exceptional as would be expected by the prices. The ambiance is lively and fun- it is a busy energetic place. If this was not a tourist destination it would not survive. The fish special was not: it was a meagre portion and dry. The discounted prices at Happy Hour are a much more realistic reflection of value. The service was personable and appropriately attentive.
Marvelous! Excellent service
Fun vibe with very good service. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Staff was very friendly. Our meal was good and the mai tais were excellent!
The restaurant was highly recommended but didn’t quite deliver what we expected. It was good, but not the “great” food or experience that it was described to be. It’s a good restaurant, but not necessarily a place that I would suggest for anything special.
Our Server, Chealsey, was “on it”! Lots of excellent teamwork! Food was delicious and the “timing” was spot on! We waited a bit longer to sit on the patio! It was worth the wait! We had fresh fish! Excellent! Overall, a perfect evening! I suggest making a reservation! Always busy! The very best Mai Tai cocktails on the island.
Shae our server was AWESOME! Great vibe!
The most fantastic Mai Tais. Wonderful food. Very friendly wait staff. Love it
Pizza pitiful....but Mai tai great.
The food was excellent but our waitress literally gave us a dirty look when we said we weren’t going to have drinks. Some people simply don’t drink.
Live entertainment during Happy Hour is a big plus. The restaurant felt electric with happy and at the same time relaxing while chatting with friends over dinner! Wish they had more live music in the evening dinners.
Loved the live music. Service was outstanding
From food to service you can’t go wrong with Monkeypod kitchen! We have gone everyday since we got to Maui and will probably go again before we leave! Their Mai Tai is the best!
I would recommend Monkeypod and will definitely be going back there myself!
We love Monkeypod. Best mai Tais by far. Annie made our dining experience fantastic. This place has it dialed in. Great food. Empowered and happy and engaging servers. Absolute joy. We look forward to next time.
Matt, our server provided excellent service. When I was concerned about the “rub” on the filet mignon he checked w the kitchen to ensure there were some that were plain.
We’ve dined here multiple times & always pleased w the Monkeypod
Our waiter Nicole was fantastic. We had the pink snapper special of the day in a curry sauce + the poke tacos and deviled eggs. All outstanding dishes. We come here every year and have never been disappointed.
Jake was our waiter, made our evening perfect. Food was outstanding, however, a bit loud
Had a great time. My pizza was great but everyone else said their pizza was just okay. The mai tais were fantastic. Back home to Canada now. Loved it. Can’t wait to come back. Mahalo.
Our first time here and we will definitely return!
The staff, especially Lisa was amazing. She is extremely good at her job and very attentive. The food and ambiance was out of this world. This wasn’t the first time and definitely won’t be the last time we come here. Thank you for everything!
Fantastically chill on a night after Thanksgiving. Apps are always solid. Great cocktails and well put-together wine list.
Jake was great as was the food
Amanda was the quintessential professional! Perfect service and incredibly friendly. The food was fantastic as ever. Full traditional turkey dinner with complementary sandwiches to go! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving family dinner and will return again and again!!
Good Thanksgiving dinner. Slice of pie would have been a nice touch for the $45/plate price tag. An extra sandwich to take home was a nice though. Our server was awesome, I think her name was Tracy or Stacy. Well organized and lots of staff to get people in and out without feeling rushed.
Awesome food, service and atmosphere. Cannot wait to go back.
Thanksgiving and wedding anniversary
We ordered the Thanksgiving special and the food was warm at best.
The music in side was a little too loud, but we are outside and our service was outstanding! The food was fantastic and the mai tai was amazing!
Service was quite slow and my order didn’t come out correctly.
Everyone was so friendly! I was treated like family
Great food. Good wait staff. The fish tacos are amazing.
The food is very good. From the salad to the wings and entrees we really enjoyed our meal.
Fun vibe, great server and service, best mai tais! Food is pricey for casual fare but it was really good and I’d definitely go back.
Anyone looking for a Man Tai should come to Monkey Pod. They make the best Man Tai on the islands.
