We want to make our 800 square-feet feel like home for all of our Monkis.

Monki is very small, a few tables in a funky cafe style space. Food is fresh and well flavoured. Wine was reasonably priced with a short but decent selection.

It was a cute and cozy place and the portions were a good size. We shared 2 items and a desert and we left extremely full. Will go again

My family and I really enjoyed the Happy hour, the shareables and our beetroot chocolate dome in support to the Breast cancer awareness month. Great initiative, love this place! Definitely recommend it.

There were no chocolate domes available. That’s the only reason we chose Monki and we were all disappointed when they had none made. My Monki burger was also very over charred and dry.

Requested a high table ended up being sat at bar. Wasn’t bad seats however there was nowhere to put jackets. Food was great but definatly took some time. Would go back but more for brunch not for dinner

It is a must to go places for the 'dome' dessert! It was the most amazing, and unique desserts in calgary! You will not be disappointed!

We’ve been here before for breakfast which was great but a bit tight on space. This was our first time for dinner and it was really good. The food was really flavorful and the desserts were one of a kind. The only thing was the portion size was smaller than we anticipated. Overall all though a great experience. Service was phenomenal and will be back again.

The location was great, and so was the food! However, it was hard to hear everyone around the table. I wouldn’t go to this restaurant if you have a group of 6 or more. A few other nuances was that there were flies that just wouldn’t go away and some of the deserts weren’t available.

Loved the food but felt it was slightly overpriced for the portion sizes. The chocolate dome was amazing!

The service was poor and we requested a table but got placed at a dark high table in the back. The food wasn’t worth the price and they didn’t give us enough time to eat the appetizer before bringing out the main...
this place is much better for brunch.. would not recommend for dinner personally

The quality of the food was less than any regular bistro. We ordered the chicken tenders and was not tenders at all, the chicken burger was for 17 dollars and the bun was dry and the juicy chicken supousply juicy was the same of the chicken tenders that we had for appetizer. We cancelled the French frise appetizer and yet it does come. It was dry pieses and we complianed about the tenders and as if she didnot heared us. The tip things it is automatically either 18% or higher. The waiter was nice and friendly with us though. The quality compare with the price does not make any sense. We ordered Fondo as well and it came into 2 black berries with 3 strowbareey and half banana with little pieses of waffle liked it but doesn't looks like a Fondo.

This place was really good for brunch but not dinner. I found the dinner menu to be over priced. We ordered nachos which were good but too pricey. The avocado burger was not very good nor the fries. I would recommend this place for brunch only.
