Had dinner there last night with my husband. Just simply impeccable, fantastic, all dishes are so full of flavor! We had the best waiter, THANK YOU PABLO!!! (or Pavlo, not sure of the spelling). He was so knowledgeable and knew when and what to suggest! My husband and I have a taste for fine dining cuisine and this restaurant is by far No1 on our list! Sea bass and scallop sashimi are to die for! Tuna tartar was just fantastic. Brussel sprouts (!!!) were over the top, I could have eaten the whole plate by myself. So much flavor in each dish, yet so different. The drink menu is well thought through as they compliment the food items perfectly! Will be back for sure!

My fiance and I had an amazing time and some of the best sushi we've had in south florida. Jamie our server was very knowledgeable and gave us an outstanding experience. Tony the manager was also very nice and all together it was one our best date night experiences. Highly recommend this resturaunt to anyone.

Stayed at the diplomat for a long weekend ended up at Monkitail for 2 dinners. First of all the staff was fantastic. From Erica at the hostess stand to our waiters - customers came first. We did the tasting menu the first night. Thanks to our waiter Jamie who helped us navigate the choices. Everything was delicious but it was a lot of food and we were not able to finish the last 3 courses. Pace yourself. We went back for a second night and had just sushi. Again the chef did not disappoint... very fresh selection of fish. Overall excellent experience. We sat in the sushi bar section both nights, great ambience and service. Would definitely return.
