Overall food and service is always great and on point. The chefs tasting menu is the way to go. The only unfortunate part of this particular meal was the staff prepping other tables near by and moving the chairs around without picking them off the ground. By them dragging them it makes a very loud and disturbing screeching noise. The same noise occurs when patrons pull their seats out. Need to put some sliders on them or resolve this issue.
Loved doing the tasting menu! They forgot to bring one of our courses but compensated with a free round of drinks. The restaurant is in a fancy hotel and great atmosphere. Free valet parking for the restaurant. The food was spectacular. The only weird thing was that my dinner guest and I had to order all of the same selections on the tasting menu. I understand that this makes it easier but we have very different tastes and didn't know this when we booked the reservation. Overall, it was a great place for a date and we both really enjoyed the food!
Service staff could have been more attentive. Sushi was also a bit fishier than expected.
A birthday dinner to remember!
Thanks all to the gang.
Excelente place for a date. Very well decorated. Friendly staff, and most importantly, amazing food. It’s not my first time at Monkitail and I have never been disappointed. Highly recommended.
Had the tasting menu it was delicious.
Valentine’s day with my wife was spectacular at Monkitail !
Great ambiance and food. Service was excellent and very professional. Loved it. Definitely a must !
Hotel Diplomat is amazing inside and out. Great view and enjoyable ocean breeze.
We had the $68 ten course meal. It was absolutely incredible. Our server Pablo was wonderful and helped guide us throughout our meal!
We did the tasting menu and it did not disapoint! We stuck around after dinner and had a cocktail in the lounge in the back and that was a great experience as well; we had the whole place to ourselves.
We first arrived and they tried to seat us on the sushi side, which is more casual. After a wait, they said us on the nicer section for our dinner. The food was beyond delicious but slightly salty. We loved all the tastes of different items.
The experience was amazing.
Great experience from the start, the hostess asked about any food preferences (allergies). Upon seating our server was very prompt, knowledgeable, and patient as we weren’t too familiar with the offerings. The sticky duck bao buns and the wagyu New York Strip were the star of the evening, I was actually surprised at how low the bill was when presented. Great food at an exceptional price, I highly recommend!
This is the second time we have come here and they are batting 1000. The tasting menu is exceptional, and I’d you leave hungry and anything but thrilled, that’s on you. We had the same waiter (Pavlo) both times and he made it a top shelf dining experience. This is one of the finest restaurants I’ve been to.
The best that’s all
Amazing 3rd time coming to Monkitail. Love it !!!
Love this place!
When you’re in South beach you expect to pay south beach prices. But when you’re in Hallandale you expect the prices to be more reasonable. $25 for a normal scotch $22.50 for a Tito’s on the rocks is ridiculous.
Food was very good, service as well, but expect to cough up $250-$300 per couple with a couple of drinks.
Grossly overpriced would not go back and would not recommend.
First the staff
Colin,and Megan greeted with a smile and had great info on the the sake and food , they are so warm and welcoming .
Then Henry didn’t miss a beat, great waiter ..friendly and knowledgeable .
THE FOOD , absolutely flawless .
It’s almost an hour drive but we will be back often.
Shrimp tacos & Scallops were outstanding, great service, highly recommend!!!
Food at it’s finest!
Ideal for date night. One of the few restaurants I've ever given a 5 star rating. We sat in the bar area which was a bit nosier than I would've liked but overall we enjoyed everything about it. We got dressed up, had a great food, drinks were tasty, ambiance was intimate.
Excellent service (Pablo), very welcoming, friendly and suggested delicious menu items. Food was incredible. The tuna toro, shishito peppers, pork gyoza, halibut and ny strip were all perfectly prepared. Thank you for an awesome experience.
Great food, great service, wonderful ambience, very reasonable prices
Each course as delicious and beautifully presented as the last. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Will never order the Shortrib for 2 again - very fatty and smaller than usual. Was a private event that night and we were seated in the back booths, curtains closed, looking at a service door. Ordered peppers and they came last. Was moderately disappointed.
I had a really amazing experience. The management and staff clearly are customer focused. Monkitail has an incredible energy yet still somehow created an intimate dining experience for my gf and me. Chefs tasting was off the charts. I can’t wait to go back.
It was my birthday dinner and the service was amazing. Chef Josh was also very accommodating
Outstanding from the beginning of the meal to the very last bite. We all did the 10 course tasting menu (everyone at the table must participate to order) that outrageously supposed all out expectations. Woke up dreaming about it! Defiantly would recommend for a great, fun, delicious night out.
Food was fantastic, service was unbelievable! Would definitely recommend
Food was amazing!
Food was excellent — great recommendations. Dine early before it gets loud.
The fire alarms went off for the end of our dinner... it was loud and visually overwhelming. I assume that does not happen any other time.
Love this place!!!
Absolutely awesome! I'd definitely recommend this to anyone! We did the chef tasting menu and it was super worth it. Also, make sure you get your free Valet parking validation!
The tuna was some of the best I’ve ever had. Their 10 course menu is a great deal.
Another amazing meal! All of the new additions, cocktails and food, are absolutely delicious.
As always perfect evening👍
Always my favourite in Hollywood
