We were celebrating my wife's birthday with another couple and had never been to Monkitail. Tony, The Manager, had a welcoming smile on his face when we got there as I told him it was my wife's birthday. He gave us a tour of the restaurant including the Karaoke Rooms. He sat us down for a few moments and when a better table opened up he moved us. He didn't need to do that and he was charming and hospitable the entire night, often checking in on us. Our waiter Mateo helped explain their extensive and interesting menu with detail and a smile on his face. His recommendations were excellent and he was very accommodating even when my wife ordered a complicated off the menu drink. We all ordered the Chefs Tasting Experience which was outstanding and plentiful! The ambiance is interesting and has a cool vibe. This is a great restaurant for a special evening or just date night. I will return and recommend this to all of my friends and family!

Food and service are both excellent. Make sure to ask for Henry as your waiter. Also Tony is a great manager, very professional.

Visited Monkitail for an anniversary dinner and what an experience! The Chef’s Tasting Experience was out of this world...small, shareable plates that were exceptional to our palate. Hands-down, the service just made the experience even better. Matthew, our server did a great job at describing each dish and was very attentive. Even the Manager Tony, was charming and professional and made us feel like regulars. Highly recommend this place to anyone.

My husband and I had an amazing date night at Monkitail. We decided on the Chef’s Tasting Menu and what a phenomenal culinary experience! The delicious shareable plates just kept coming. The Duck Scrapple Bao Bun is a MUST!!!! The ambiance was great and service could not be better. If you are ever at Monkitail, ask for MATEO to be your server. He described every plate in detail and with great passion. Mateo made the experience an unforgettable one!

Definitely a great recommendation for dinner with your friends/family!

Love this place, so many choices we decided to go with the chefs selections and we were not disappointed. From the tuna tartare to the Kobe beef to the sea bass , everything perfectly prepared and fresh. The service was superb our waiter , Pavlo was knowledgeable and very friendly. The managers Tony and Cecile were, also very hospitable and professional. This was our first time here but we will definitely be returning soon,
