Monkeypod Kitchen - Wailea
Had the fish of the day, monchong, it was done to perfection. Great dark chocolate cream pie as a dessert.
The lobster deviled eggs and the lobster pizza were very good. Try the banana cream pie for dessert.
Loud, undisciplined packs of kids kind of wrecks the experience. Both service and food outstanding.
We went here on our honeymoon and had a wonderful experience
Definitely need to make a reservation if 3 or more people. Food was excellent, service also excellent. Noise level was high and they had live music which made it tough to converse. Our table was near the door to the patio, so lots of service traffic. We were celebrating THREE birthdays and the hostess even mentioned it when we checked in as I had put in comments on reservation I expected to at least have some recognition during service...but Nothing! This was disappointing😧
Fantastic Happy Hour specials on appetizers and drinks. Excellent staff from start to finishing. Food is always well prepared, hot and filling.
Our favorite restaurant!!?
Great food, service, beer list and location! We will definitely be back when we are in the Wailea area again!
This place was amazing! A friend recommended that we try it and we took an Uber over there from our Airbnb in Kihei. So glad we made a reservation, this place was busy. We had ahi tuna tacos to start, plus dumplings, and I had the mahi mahi while my husband had the prime rib. They even brought us a free dessert in honor of our honeymoon which was very delicious. The sunset view from our outdoor table was incredible too - people definitely ran outside to the patio to take photos.
Great time at monkeypod! Went for happy hour. Everything was fresh and delicious and a great value. Ordered several items to share! Pulled pork pizza, kale salad, fries, and pot stickers.
Server was slow to get to us. We were at the table for 10 minutes before anyone showed up.
Seated us outside where we had the annoyance of watching and hearing the cars go by on the street
Food is very good but our experience this time was disappointing.
The Monkeypod is always a go to when staying on Maui. The food is decent and the prices are moderate. The restaurant is on the noisy side and felt very chaotic. Service was ok but our waiter was clearly stretched too thin. We had to wait for our order to be taken, wait for our dessert and wait for our check for what felt like an extended amount of time. I suggest taking advantage of their happy hour or if you have a large group this is a decent place to go if you have a reservation.
We always hit the Monkeypod for our first evening on Maui. And the mai tai and food is relish! Thks.
Innovative menu and really fresh and tasty food
Delicious, healthy, local and perfectly prepared food. I recommend the mai tai - which is not particularly sweet. And the pie!!!
The food was great! Portions were a bit smaller than expected. Kinda noisy but there was live music so very enjoyable!!
Poor service. Mediocre food. I would recommend only coming during their happy hours. They have two - one before and after dinner time.
Dessert was excellent; mains were solid but not exciting. Fun cocktails
Amazing food, relaxed atmosphere, fresh food, farm to table but expect to pay appropriately. Delicious meal from cocktails to dessert, would go again and again and again!
I had absolutely the best seared Ahi that I’ve ever had. Our waitress, Annie, was very attentive to us, friendly and efficient. Our only negative was that the food was served so fast that we felt a bit rushed. Monkeypod is a great place that we’ll go to when we’re in Maui next time.
We went to Monkeypod earlier in the week for happy hour - that was terrific, too. Very friendly bar staff and great banter with other customers.
We sat outdoors which we loved. It’s much more peaceful. Inside is lively and much louder. A great restaurant. Best Mai Tai. Delicious seafood.
By far the best meal I’ve ever had in my life… And I’m old
Wonderful greeting, knowledgeable, friendly server. AAMAZING food, great Happy hour, went back next day.
Great Happy Hour
Expensive food & portion size poor but lovely vibe
The food was very good, the service was wonderful, but it was a little noisy, even outside on their patio.
Went for the half price sparkling on Sunday good and drink were great!
Server was nice but forgot to put in an entree. Didn’t receive a credit either. Have had much better experiences at Monkeypod prior to this.
Very good cocktails, good server who is attentive. Free coconut cream pie for my mom's birthday. We've been here once before and the food was excellent, I had the special and it was a plate clearing experience.
Great! Visiting from CO and loved it!
We dined during happy hour. Super busy but fun. Great value on happy hour menu.
Phenomenal overall experience
Excellent lunch with very flavorful food. My wife has a mai tai as well, and greatly enjoyed it. We will return when we are vack in Maui.
Liked it so much the first time, we came-back 3 days later. Staff is super and good. Will be back!
Bar none- the best Mai Tai on the planet! And the Ahi Tuna Melt... glorious!!!
