While I dropped in for appetizers, was pleasantly surprised to find a full Dinner Menu. Very good food, would strongly recommend.

Took my daughter here for her birthday. The pasta is very good. A little expensive, but the quality was good. We came during happy hour so got a little bit of a break on the wine. Nice place to go to eat for a special occasion.

The positives: My husband, who "doesn't eat salad" LOVES the salad with the chardonnay mustard dressing. Very nice selection of wines and beers. Nice Atmosphere. Typically good food. The negatives: The prices are too high. I could live with the prices if the service was not so unpredictable. My husband and I have walked in, sat at the small bar,... More

My dear friend a d I stopped by on a Friday evening, no reservation but the lady said that was not a problem and we were taken to the patio at the back. Charming setting...which was fortunate as we had almost a forty minute wait before anyone spoke to us again. Huge apologies for the "delay", a scanty pour of... More

I've known about monks for awhile now and I finally went in for dinner to treat my parents. What a perfect place for a Chico night! Had our pick of being able to people watch out the front window or be cozy in their new dining area. We chose people watching, although I must admit, the walker by-ers never took... More

Could provide better quality and a lower price. We have stopped going there because of the inconsistence.

We have eaten at Monks twice in the past year. It is a bit pricey, but one of only a few outstanding restaurants in Chico. I would highly recommend it.

My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to have a glass of wine on a Saturday afternoon and found Monk's. We have been twice now and have had excellent experiences. During both visits, we sat at the bar and had wine and appetizers. Our servers have been attentive and knowledgeable about the wine list and appetizer menu.... More

This is definitely a hit or miss place. Sometimes everything clicks, sometimes you shake your head. There are only a few good tables near the entryway and some outside dinning in the back if you want to brave the elements. You should call for reservations due to the fact that seating is limited on weekends. Prices are a little overboard... More
