Very disappointing experience. In a restaurant with many empty tables, we were walked upstairs to the last table, near the kitchen and bathroom. We refused it, and then seated in the next to last table . Rather than leave we took it. The main flavoring seemed to be very salty soy sauce, which ruined the taste of a nice steak. The seared tuna was mushy, and exchanged graciously for the Panko chicken, which was tasty. Service was good, but not up to the standards of other restaurants in the chain. We’ve been at monsoon before and remember a much better experience.

The Restaurant needs a good restaurant manager to keep the place smoothly running. Our waiter was nice but there were several other junior staff who didn't seem to have a purpose and were hovering over our table to collect our plates. Our waiter seemed overworked and we didn't see him much. The food portions were very small and the prices very high. Disappointing. The presentation of our food was not what I would expect from this location. There didn't appear to be an effort. Quality touches that can support these prices are missing. My mojito was watery but the margarita we also tried was better. The fun part is the decor and the upbeat atmosphere. We were there on a Friday night so there was a clubby vibe and dancing after 11pm. That was fun. The setting inside Monsoon is really really nice and a visual delight, but sadly the presentation of the food and the service does not match.

Went on a Wednesday, but because we had a gift card, they would now allow us to have the wine special. Our check was well over a hundred dollars, and we couldn't get the wine half price. Not the money, the principal. Anyway the sushi was delicious and service was fast. Expensive but only went because we had the gift card.

We had to wait 20 minutes for a table downstairs even though we had a reservation. We asked for the duck for 2 . We were told they were out of it. We were in the middle of eating a small plate when the waitress came back & said one duck was ready. We came specifically for the duck!!!

We were seated upstairs, and it was very quiet as compared with downstairs. We began with the shared appetizer for 2 ($34) which was absolutely delicious! My friend enjoyed the short ribs. I had the lobster/shrimp panko sushi, which was good, but nothing special. For dessert we ordered coffee ( hot and strong, delicious) and the lava cake, a tad overpriced at $8, but all in all a very good meal with attentive service

Don't get to Monsoon as often as we dine at Prime Verace, Tellers, and H2O, but when we do go, it never disappoints! If you like Asian Fusion, this is the place for you.

We had the Star (sushi) roll, steak yakatori, half a roast duck (full duck also available for two or one big eater), the surf and turf featuring filet mignon with rock shrimp, French fries with dipping sauces, Brussels sprouts, fried Oreos, and the home made soft-serve ice cream cones (chocolate, vanilla, and swirl). Not a single dish or condiment was bad. We enjoyed everything and even had a little bit of leftovers.

Chris our server was excellent! He is typical of the BRG waitstaff: attentive but not intrusive, friendly but not too familiar. He took excellent care of us, made great recommendations, and was sure that my two water glasses were always full.

We were greeted warmly and wished a good evening (and a final check on how our meal was) by Kayla from the Monsoon management team. We told Kayla everything was perfect and we'd be back again soon!

On a final "note," no pun intended, I think Monsoon plays the best music of the all BRG joints. Its nice, chill lounge music; not intrusive but didn't put us to sleep, either; perfect for a Monday night.

I think on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays they kick it up a notch, though, so be prepared for more of a club-like music vibe.

I love the music at Verace (very 80's) and H2O (good overall mix), but Prime and Tellers could use a little less classic rock from the 70's.

Thanks for reading!

The room we were in looked like a diner and was way too loud. we could hardly hear one another. I liked the upstairs table we had last year much better. My husband and I have sat in the room we were in but they changed it and not for the better.

Eric our waiter was excellent and if not for him i would have given it less stars. We have been at Monsoon several times and the food has definitely gone down. My wife had the salmon and could not eat it. i had the generals chicken which was very tasteless.
we had a few drinks and the bartenders did a fantastic job as i changed one of the drinks on the bar menu. My 21 year old daughter forgot her ID, but had a picture on her phone. Eric asked the manager if that was good enough and she said no. I understood and did not argue. i was surprised that the manager did not come to the table herself, but i saw she was busy talking to one specific table nearby all night. a matter of fact she walked by several other tables as well without saying a word, but was seen talking a lot to her family or friends?

Went for the Friday night price fix menu. Was not very impressed. Loved others in the group (Tellers, Verace) but not Monsoon. Food was not up to par for a restaurant of this nature.
