Lunchtime visit after 12:30 p.m. and the wait staff was standing around chatting and laughing. The floor under the table was filthy. Not just from the lunch service. The tables around our table were piled with dirty plates and glasses from the previous diners. The wait staff did not rush over to us in fact they still stood around and... More

Went to Bleu Monkey grill on Friday for lunch and returned the next day . I was accompanied by my mother and aunt. Excellent food presentations and very attentive service. We had an appetizer sampler, burgers and shrimp tacos. The food was very tasty and we actually went back the next day.

This is our first night in Hot Springs after our drive from Dallas, TX. Another guest from our resort recommended the Blue Monkey Grill. We arrived about 6:00 PM and were promptly seated. Our waiter arrived shortly thereafter to take our orders. I had the Santa Fe Chipolte Pasta and my wife had Jambalaya. We like to order different dishes... More

The atmosphere is very nice and the people were very nice as well. The food is almost like Mexican, but with a twist. It doe snot fit in one category. They have a good variety of food. They have something for everyone. I picked from their healthier meals. It had flavor, but not all of the fat and yucky stuff.... More

Food was really good and hot something we don't have at home liked it a lot. Atmosphere was great!! Fun place to just hang out. If you don't like loud don't go.

We were seated pretty quickly but it took 1/2 hr to get a drink from the bar and all the server could say was "it's not my fault, it's the bartender". After finally receiving our drinks the server took our order but again the food took forever and all he could say was "it's not my fault, it's the kitchen".... More

We dined at the Blue Monkey at lunch today. I enjoyed eating at a place that was new to me. Service was great and waitress was knowledgeable concerning menus. The lettuce wraps were great! The only downside to them was that some pieces of the lettuce were too small to use as wrap. My husband enjoyed his Cuban sandwich and... More

I was really excited for the Buffalo Bites, but they weren't very well executed. The won ton was too crunchy and the inside was dry. The onion rings were made out of the outside of the onion close to the skin, I couldn't even rip them apart with my teeth. Fried Mac and cheese balls were good and the avocado... More
