Great wine (Malbec), but the food (falafel wrap, beef briscut) were both pretty average (at best). Great service and atmosphere....

Always a great place to get Aviator and Big Boss Brews on Tap! Always a nice treat at the end of a shopping day or when letting the misses shop while I catch some sports and a cold local treat.

Had a choice of several eateries next to each other - Brio's, McCormick & Schmick, a steakhouse, and the Red Monkey - well that was easy ("which one is not like the other"...). The decor and atmosphere is highly unusual, with an urban monkey motif running throughout; maybe this is a monkey's perspective of a scientist's enriched environment - very fun! My server Zack recommended the shrimp and grits; that sounded southern and it was delicious. Came with a French onion soup which was good. There are five varieties of Mac and cheese which were tempting but looked like they need to be shared with an army. The beers were very good.

I had never been here before and was glad that we had tried it. I ordered a Caesar salad and shared the lobster pinch add to macaroni and cheese with my coworker. The Caesar was a little bit non-traditional and the dressing was a tad on the citrusy side. But it was good. the mac and cheese was good as well. But once it got cooled off after sitting at the table it had a sort of bitter taste. The atmosphere was fun and the light fixtured were cool to look at. Would probably eat here again when visiting the area.

Was a pretty cool place to look around while waiting on food. Just had a burger but it was good. We didnt like the hummus but never had it before, thought it was bland tasting. Beers were a little pricey for just domestic but they had some locals on special which was a nice touch. Right inside of the mall.
