We went here on the recommendation of a good friend. As it was our first time, we went with the tasting menu, as we were eager to sample the many of the menu items. Our waiter Mateo made excellent suggestions and answered all our questions. His service , as well as the entire staff was exceptional. The food was amazing. Portions were plenty for the two of us. The whole experience was terrific. We will definitely be back.

Exceptional food. The service was beyond anything we haved seen in South Florida. Talk about attention to detail!! Pablo was our waiter. Try him out. Pablo could not have done a better job dealing with our party who have varied tastes and me who has several issues with hot food and spices, etc. He's a 10+ on what one hopes for in a restaurant like yours. We all has a great time.

I would definitely recommend the tasting menu. The sea bass as an entree was amazing and melted in your mouth. The tuna rice cracker, duck bao, octopus and lamb skewers were delicious. When I go again, I will pass on the fried chicken.

Bar menu is a bit sparse. Need many more traditional beverages. especially scotch. Three single malts is much too few. Yes, I know the theme is Japanese and Sake is King, but the Niponnese have a very big taste to Scotch and so do I.

Very quick food once you get your order in and absolutely delicious. The food is amazing and tasty. Sushi was good, yalisoba was excellent, the grilled short Ribs excellent, grilled chicken thighs excellent, grilled pork was okay. The seaweed salad was Divine. We had a good server that was busy but he handled it well. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The left side dining room was like a sub zero freezer and the Hostess offered us the dining room bordering the lobby. Thank God for her as it was not freezing. You must try Monkitail. I will be back.

Second time to restaurant, this time it was our 56 years Anniversary. We reside in Hollywood. The ambience is excellent, service is great, food is delicious. Our last meal was the 5Oz. N.Y. Strip for my wife and I, it was done perfectly but, it was brought out luke warm. My wife and I decided if we send it back it may come back overdone so we decided to not get it reheated. Aside from that minor set back we were very satisfied and will definitely return.
