I don't usually write reviews for restaurants where I live but The Monkey Bar is so great that I feel compelled to say something positive, officially. My husband and I have eaten here a few times (once for our weeknight wedding anniversary) and I usually have the duck confit which is excellent...Very little fat, tender meat, and nice sides.
We were on our way to another restaurant in the area when we noticed they had a Summerlicious menu (3 courses $25). Despite not having a reservation, we were accommodated immediately and we were so happy. My meal, potato Cesar salad, tandoori talapia with sweet potato fries & the Eton mess for dessert was amazing and portions were regular size (something that is often scrimped on during Summerlicious). My husband had the duck lettuce wrap appetizer and veal and was very happy with both. We ended up being completely stuffed! The service, as always, was friendly and efficient; our water glass was continuously topped up, nice amount of time waiting between courses & cheerful staff despite being so busy. The prices on the regular menu are reasonable considering the quality of the food & our meal has never cost more that $100 with drinks.
This is easily one of the best restaurants in Toronto!
