Had an amazing experience! Definitely recommend the Chef’s Tasting menu!!!
An overall excellent dining experience. The service staff is like a well-oiled machine and our service by Colin was exceptional. The restaurant is beautiful. Dishes are varied and and all were tasty. The pork gyoza and hamachi were to die for.
Monkitail is located in The Diplomat Resort property. That being said, it reflects every food venue on this property, OVERPRICED! I am all in favor of a venue making a profit, but I abhor price gouging! Monkitail is one of nicest restaurants for ambience and food quality but the prices are expensive!
Delicious food, great ambiance. Best meal in florida.
It was my first time there and I have to say everything was amazing. My server was Tani and his service was fantastic, I will definitely be back!
I have not been to a restaurant that was as good as Monkitail in a very long time.
The food was delicious, I am a Vegan and was able to found few items. love the ambience, very warm.
Collin was an amazing server. The entire bar staff was extremely accommodating. It may be the finest bar selection in Broward County. A must is the sea bass. Also the duck scrapple
4 adults, two of us wanted the chefs tasting but the chef has this ‘rule’ that they won’t serve you the chefs tasting unless every adult at the table orders it. One of the adults has a violent shellfish allergy and I wasn’t hungry, so the other 2 of us that wanted it could not have it. That is a chef prima-donna thing. Sorry chef, you are no Anthony Bourdain. won’t be dining here again.
Vraiment bien .
Chefs menu was outstanding. Every dish was perfection
.. service was outstanding as well.
We previously had a poor experience but we returned because our son was looking forward to trying it out.
This experience was great. The server was pleasant and professional. Timing of food was good. The food was amazing. I’m glad we returned!
Spectacular service and ambience. Our server Diego was very knowledgeable and confidently recommended the chefs tasting menu which is a perfect way to try a variety of things on the menu for $65 per person. One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in Fort Lauderdale
Recommend to sit in the main dining room for more ambiance
Food was good but service was awkwardly slow. Many dishes were not delivered to the table and had to be requested two times. Bar service was extremely slow. Manager was cordial and apologetic but nothing was resolved. So sorry that we hadn’t known the challenges a head of time.
Outstanding experience. Perfect for special occasion or date night.
Nice ambiance, food was good but nothing extraordinary, I would say the rolls were average somewhat. Other than that the server was very knowledgeable and informative. This place is great for dates. Definitely will come back again
Just an incredible restaurant. Love the food - have the 10 plate tasting, unique specialty cocktails -have the monkitail with smoked cloves, and great waiter - ask for Rory. Been there many times and i can never finish all the food they give. One of my top 5 restaurants.
Beautiful restaurant, great ambiance, awesome food. Highly recommend.
A very good place for dinner and drinks. The food was very good with some dishes being exceptional. The service was extra excellent with Collin both nights we dined there.
We had been here previously and had a great experience. Tonight our server forgot to put in our order and after waiting for one hour, yes one hour we asked him about the delay and he informed us he forgot to put in our order. The server was apologetic. Our food then rapidly came out. He comped is a free dessert for our “wait” although we had done the tasting menu and ice cream was included.
Very disappointed. Probably having a bad night but unlikely I’ll return.
Super slow and unprofessional service. Server was nice but I guess he took too many tables at one time. Food is so so. I had much better for that price. Interior is nice. Not sure that I’ll be back.
Service too fast. Ordered several dishes (tapas style). They came almost all together. Dinner too 40 minutes.
This is really some of the best food I have ever had. The short rib was absolutely incredible. I highly recommend this place!
This was my fiance's and my second time at Monkitail. We really love the food and the atmosphere is great. Very knowledgeable waiters. The duck bao buns are our favorite. It is located in the Dilpomat Resort, so there are great options for drinks after dinner. There is a really cool little lounge next door and the lobby bar has an amazing toasted marshmallow old fashioned.
Extremely inconsistent food quality, been here several times and ranged from good to inedible
Amazing except for the Valet stealing from our car. Great night tho. Coming back for sure!
Great service and excellent food
The food is very flavorful and fresh. We didn’t do the tasting menu but went a la carte, plenty of food for the two of us. My favorite is the Japanese Fried Chicken and the scallops.
The food was incredible, the tuna rice crackers and the shittake mushrooms were absolutely delicious. Service was great and our server Matteo was very friendly.
The food was good but portions are Extremely small !! Even smaller than expected. The sides of Brussel sprouts and rice were delicious and plentiful but other options very small. 2 items ordered were never received. Serving staff very nice and ambiance of hotel and restaurant very cool just know what you are getting
2nd visit - ordered Cef's menu -- great as first time -- the wait staff was horrible, never checked on, never listened to our orders, she had to ask twice or more...when needed assistance could not find her ..her bad service ruined a great evening.
Group of 8 celebrating birthday and Mother's Day. We opted for tasting menu and it was a very good choice. We enjoyed all items ordered. Our favorites were scallops and sea bass.
Excellent food, very flavorful. Excellent and attentive service.
The ambiance is good and the food is good. The short rib is a little overrated. The prices are on the high side. I will return one more time to give it a second try.
Great food and variety. The staff looked after us very well. Our favourites were the duck bun, anything with scallops and shrimp tacos.
Have a cocktail at the bar in the restaurant. A lovely obliging crew work there and they make the best Vespers!
It was our 2nd time there and won't be our last.
Food and service was great. Very noisy and hard to hear one another.
Great night!! Our waiter, Pablo, walked us through the menu and created such a great dinner experience for us!! Will definitely be back.
Simply amazing!!! We have the 10 course tasting menu and it was fantastic!!! We celebrated our anniversary and they gave us complimentary champagne which was a nice touch! Service and food was top notch!!! Will definitely go back again!!! Good job guys!!!
Upbeat atmosphere, informative helpful staff, delicious food
