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.
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👍
Food ranging from good to excellent. Nice ambience and good service. Both food and service were not consistent.
Always my favourite in Hollywood
The restaurant was nice, although the tables for two were cramped. In our reservation we specified it was our honeymoon - they sat us wedged between several diners. We asked to be moved to an end table and they quickly moved us and poured us a complimentary glass of champagne. However, two women next to us were incredibly rude, sitting side by side instead of across from each other and encroaching onto our table. One of them took out nail polish and began polishing her nails! And if that wasn't terrible enough she decided the vaping laws do not apply to her and proceeded to vape - openly - while ordering more alcohol from her server, who said absolutely nothing to her! So we asked the manager to please ask her to stop vaping. For our trouble he bought us a nice bottle of Sake. We had the tasting menu and a bottle of Belle Glos Clark & Telephone. The tasting menu is 10 small dishes and a dessert - a lot of food! We took some portions home with us. Overall the food and service was very good - I would go back and would recommend the restaurant.
We had an excellent meal!
Blown away by the food, cocktails, ambiance & stellar service at Monkitail! Our waiter, Henry, was exceptional as was the food. We chose the chefs tasting menu & it was fantastic! We are pescatarians & the selections were exceptional & shockingly delicious. I had no idea this restaurant was this amazing! We will be back & I highly recommend this restaurant.
Met my expectations. Dined at another concept in Philadelphia so I was expecting great food and service. They delivered.
We live eating here. This was our second time and the food is still perfection. We did the prix fix because we want to try everything. It is a lot of food though. Everything was fresh and tasty. Ambiance is very chic.
Please allow some light so your guests could read the menu without having to use their phone flashlight. Every table in the restaraunt had to pull out their phone to read. Food and service was amazing !
Great concept in dining. Japanese tapas. Wish we could have agreed on trying the tasting menu! Everything was wonderful
The food was delicious and our waiter Mateo was very friendly, pleasant and knowledgeable and made our experience all the more enjoyable!
Love our waiter James great service and the manager too definitely coming back
Fantastic sushi & loved the atmosphere
I brought my mom here for her birthday and we had an amazing dinner. Our waiter Mateo was excellent! He was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. We absolutely enjoyed the experience with him there to help guide us around the menu. I have a few food allergies and he made my time there stress free and amazing!
This is my first time back to Monkitail since they added some new food and beverage items to their menu and the additions are amazing. We decided to try the wagyu tartare, toro tataki and lobster shumai, and I have to say these are now some of my favorite dishes. The big eye tuna roll and duck bao buns are on the top of my favorites list as well.
Our server Max recommended we try the Harmony, the Japanese old fashioned and the zen mist from off the cocktail list which are all easy drinking, delicious cocktails. He really recommended some great cocktails for the group at the table.
I’m happy to have found a such a great go to restaurant. My best girlfriends and I love coming here any chance we get.
Amazing food and excellent service by Max.
We did the tasting menu and it was worth it from start to finish.
Will definitely return for some more.
Very attentive! We did the tasting menu. I think the servers should tell the diners the positions of the dishes, the Short Rib and the Branzino were extremely big.
I would not recommend this restaurant. We (4 adults) had the tasting menu and of the 10 selections only 2 or 3 of the selections were good. It was also expensive. The service and ambience were excellent.
We had 4 people and we wanted to order 2 tasting menus. One person didn’t eat fish, another is allergic to seafood and another didn’t eat meat. We paired ourselves up so we could order the 10 plates per couple taking these food issues into effect. The waiter refused and told us only one 10 piece per table. I asked if we sat at two tables could we order 2 ten course menus. He said “yes”. So, to eat according to our dietary issues the four of us could not sit together!!!! The waiter would not offer a way to accommodate us or to help us make choices that could accommodate everyone when the plates were served. Also, he did not come by to check to check on our status of beverages throughout the meal. This waiter was the complete opposite of the word “hospitality “.
Great dining experience. We are very picky but this was of the highest quality. We had the tasting menu which was delicious and actually great value considering how much we got and the quality of the ingredients. 10 course including sushi, half a lobster each and much more.
Amazing experience! Loved everything about our visit- food/service/prices. Coming back soon! Can’t wait
As always great and entertaining food experience
Beautiful restaurant but horrible service and below average food. Server took our order and literally never came back to the table again. We were never offered a beverage other than the initial water pour and we sat at our table for 30 minutes with dirty fishes that were never cleared. Finally flagged down an expeditor to get us our check. Many great sushi and Asian restaurants in Miami-choose one of those because this is disappointing.
Service a little slow, but it was NYE.
came here for new year's eve, first visit ever. food, with the exception of a couple of dishes, was very good. drinks were nothing special and took forever to come out, I guess the bar was very backed up. service was very good and friendly. we were seated in the sushi bar room, not the main dining room. it's nice but not as nice as the main dining room. bigger issue was that it was incredibly loud due to the live band in the hotel lobby; main dining room was quieter. it was pricey but still a decent value for new year's eve considering how much other places on this level charge. overall I would return.
Amazing meal. AGAIN. Every time. No need to even try omakase anywhere else. It’s to die for. Etaru should take notes....
New Years 2020 everything was delightful & delicious. Living in Hollywood 30 yrs & would send all our friends & family visiting the area! Free valet parking was a bonus. See you soon Monkitail
The place was beautiful, the service also very good and the food delicious. Everybody in my table loved the lamb chops and the sushi, and the tacos were pretty good. We tried sea bass and it was right and delicious. I would love to come back there sometime again.
Amazing! Everything we ordered was superb!
We love this restaurant! The only negative was the noise level was Very loud and it made talking a little difficulty
Monkitail was a great dining experience. Our waiter was amazing and the tasters menu is a good idea for first time diners. A great meal was had by all. My only compliant was the loud noise level throughout the meal.
Everything was perfect!
