Ordered two pizzas and an order of chicken wings, using food to go, pizza was fresh and hot. The service was speedy and economical. Plenty of toppings to fill a teenage boy.

We took a group of 17 for an after work event. Sampling several of their signature pizzas convinced me to use them for takeout rather than our regular pizza place. Hand tossed dough and a proper wood fired oven are a great starting place for a solid pizza joint. Prices on beer seemed quite reasonable, though it might have been... More

Just flew into town, saw the reviews, needed yo go.somewhere near ournplace, and the kids always want pizza. We're happy we tried it out. All the staff was great from front to back. Garlic bread was delicious. A family of five ordered separate pizza slices, and a couple of orders of pasta and meatballs. The family was satisfied with everything... More

I have been to Smoking Monkey a few times and each time is always interesting - in a good way. I have ordered the pizzas, pastas and flatbreads and have always been delighted, that is, my tummy has been delighted. Normally I would say no to fried cauliflower, but Smoking Monkeys' fried cauliflower is delicious. Fresh ingredients and happy employees... More

The restaurant is small, but quaint with a very good staff. They had a good choice of pizzas, but the quality and taste of the pizzas was only ok. It was somewhat of a disappointment.

I like the casual environment here. They use local ingredients. The Barbarian is yummy. Can't beat the hand tossed wood fired oven pizza at Smoking Monkey.

A friend and I ate here prior to attending a movie. We enjoy trying new places and new foods. This place unique art, it is easy to find, and evening parking is plentiful. We did recognize much of what was on the menu, which we enjoyed greatly. We had onion rings, pizza, and stromboli. Everything was delicious. The service, however,... More

Enjoy food and drinks at the Smoking Monkey Pizza last week. The names of the pizzas are a little off-center but amusing. I had the Renton Theater (Alfredo, coppa, caramelized onions, mushrooms, fontina, and pecorino romano). Great pizza, I love their crust, not too thin, not too thick. plenty there to chew on,

Tried this very original pizza restaurant in Renton the evening before a flight from SEATAC. Great pizza, great salad, good service, good array of drinks and a nice cosy ambience - all in all a great restaurant.

Just happened to find this place and glad we did! Found my new favorite beer; gelato was superb; pizza unique and well crafted; the staff were all incredibly helpful and charismatic. But best of all... They serve ranch infused with dill. Oh and the decor is bad@ss.
