I have yet to find a bad item on the menu. The Bleu Monkey Shrimp is my favorite. I go there quite often.

I loved the calamari. My kids liked the Mac-n-cheese bites. My napa chicken was so tasty. My husband didn't care for his burger. My daughter had shrimp po boy and it was huge. Overall not to bad. Our waitress kept our drinks refilled which is a big plus.

Food was very tasty, wide selection of meal choices, appetizer bread with olive oil & seasoning was a nice treat. I look forward to returning to the Hot Springs area and eating here again. Pleasant and professional wait staff.

I ate the fish tacos and my Husband had the grilled skirt steak (I think it is called carniasada(sp?) both dinners came... More

You never know when you get to a restaurant if they will be accommodating to a large, boisterous group...but they were AMAZING! We were seated right away, all of our orders were processed immediately, and they worked incredibly hard to make sure that our family could sit near enough to each other to shout at the end of the tables....

After an afternoon movie with friends we all went to the Blue Monkey for a birthday celebration and a bite to eat and liquid refreshments. The food was good, the drinks were okay and the atmosphere was friendly. I was a little disappointed that they didn't have at least a scoop of ice cream for one of the ladies who... More

The Bleu Monkey was next to our hotel so we decided to try. Atmosphere was nice. Service was slow out of the gate even though not many people there. Took a while for server to come by and take drink orders. Also didn't seem to know anything about menu items when asked. But after order was taken food arrived in... More

I selected one of the specials for the night - the strawberry sirloin salad. I forgot to ask about putting the salad dressing on the side until after ordering. When I was finally able to get the waitress attention she said it was too late to make the change. She did offer though if it was too much she would... More
