We chose the Chefs experience with a flight of different foods. Everything was delicious and expertly prepared. My 6 yr old could not stop eating the spicy shrimp tacos so we had to order more. The seabass was probably the best fish I ever had. Lamb chops 5 stars. The toro was great quality but as usual not enough...
Strongly recommend trying the Robata, looks like lots of yummy stuff. Will try tonight.
Great as alaways!
Great food, service and atmosphere!
The tuna sticky rice and Beef Wagyu Robatayaki are a must.
On a recent trip we loved our experience so much we went twice in one week. I definitely recommend it to anyone in the area.
The best meal ever!
So many great dishes.
Good food, good service, good decor!
LOVED THIS RESTAURANT! We did the tasting experience for $60pp and it was well worth it! Thank you!
The food was amazing. Especially the sea bass and lobster. Their cocktails were so delicious. I’d highly recommend.
Best restaurant I have ever been to. Ate there three out of the four nights of my vacation!!! Can't stop thinking about the Tofu and lamp chop.
Loved the atmosphere, best flavors I’m enjoyed in a long time. Crispy Branzeno was our favorite and the dumplings. Service was excellent We will be back!
This has to be the best restaurant in Hollywood. Provided you go with people with similar tastes, the variety of flavours is in abundance. We had a great evening and the food delivery was perfect. We had a waiter named Diego who is smart and understanding. Our favourites were the Sea Bass and the Duck Scrapple Bao Bun. Not one dish disappointed. We have been 4 or 5 times, each time with different groups of family or friends and have always left happy.
Excellent food and service as always
Good foods. You can choose everything...!! Specially sushi and sea foods. The ambien is a little noisy.
Vacation dinner. The chefs taste is a ton of food, even if it’s a bit pricey. Everything was delicious!
We celebrated a birthday at Monkitail. Oh my goodness!! It was wonderful! The food was amazing, the service was spectacular, the ambiance was so special.. and the birthday touches were over the top! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Terrible service and the worst sushi I have ever eaten. The decor and ambiance was nice. Everything else was horrible. Don’t waste your time and money
Had a few appetizers and mostly all sushi roll. Their Big Eye Tuna special roll was very good but the rest of the rolls were average. Small and not very tasteful If you’re used to eating high end sushi you will be disappointed. It was average and wouldn’t complain but was expecting more based on the reviews and wouldn’t go back
The bar seating leaves you staring at a wall. Not good for a single diner. Food was AMAZING and so was the service!
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.
We loved the restaurant... great service by our server Linda.. we ordered the tasting menu... we let lLinda choose for us and she did a excellent job. The ambience of the restaurant was absolutely beautiful, the best hostess also... we will be back!!! We highly recommend this place
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!!!
