“What a gem!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

I really wish we came here every night of our short stay in WPB. We had such a great experience at The Blind Monk. Nick was a charming and efficient bartender who provided excellent conversation in addition to tasty food and drink. The Tuna Tostadas, Canellini Beans, Olives, and House-Cured Gravlax were all delicious and the perfect accompaniment to my wine and my husband's beer.
I really really wish we had more time to hang out at this hip spot in WPB (we really enjoyed the DJ too)!

“Pate Heaven”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

One of the first times I had really awesome Pate was at Dino in Florence, Italy back in 2000. Since then, I have been a quest to find comparable Pate. The Blind Monk really delivered...right down to the crunchy crostinis to spread it on! This is a great place to try at the beginning of the night when you're looking for a good glass of wine and some tapas. We also ordered one of the cheese plates with Sopressata that was delicious! Bypass all the chains down the street at City Place and head to the Monk...your taste buds will thank you :)

“One of the best places in the country!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Not enough words to describe how amazing this place is. its small and never too noisy, great ambiance. beer selection and knowledge of owners is just incredible - just explain what you feel like and they will find you the right beer to drink. Food is delicious and in the right size. We take out of town guests here all the time and they always want to come back.

“Love this place!!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

This is definitely a regular haunt of mine and it's still close to the downtown action without fighting the drunkards. Great wine and beer selection and for the adventurous, meads, ciders, & a lil bubbly. They have a great tapas menu from sweet to savory and all of it tasty and great pricing for a place that could gouge you. Staff is consistent and friendly. Don't know what I'd do without The Blind Monk in my life.
