Very good restaurant. After asking around my wife and I realized that this place is where it is at in the Ko'Olina. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent food. Definitely worth it. Make a reservation. Pulled pork was excellent, pumpkin potsticker/ravioli (don't remember the exact description) is amazing. Filet mignon was excellent as well.

We enjoyed dining here on 10/1/13, so we returned on 10/3/13.

The food was excellent, with the service top notch.

We lucked out with traveling this week to Hawaii / Oahu, as it is a slow travel week. We were able to get right in to the new MonkeyPod on Oahu, Ko'Olina, for both days that we visited.

What a great find, with it being recommended by one of the hotel staff. The service when greeted was outstanding, the table staff was excellent, with all floor staff really focused on making your experience the best. Other local restaurants need to be reminded of what customer service is. This place epitomizes great customer service.

The food choice, and tastes were excellent. My wife really enjoyed grilled Opa (fish) on Tuesday, with the delicious fish tacos today. I had the the very flavorful burger on Tuesday, with the personal (large) pizza today. Both nights we had the coconut cream pie, this rocked!

Thanks for making this a great dining experience, all while being a sustainable fish/food to table establishment.

We walked from our hotel in Ko Olina and were not disappointed. We sat outside, ate tasty fish tacos, and were serenaded by a Jack-Johnson-like band. Reasonably priced. We may go back again for lunch or dinner.

Monkeypod is right across the street from the Disney Aulani so some Of the price inflation bleeds over. Had an individual arugula/Asian pear/Gorgonzola pizza at $17 ( great pizza, bit pricey) ; others saimin noodles with shredded Kahlua pork, huge selection of local beers. Sat outside during one of those great downpours that pass over, dump copious amounts of droplets, then are gone. Attentive service, great food, at a leisurely pace... Country market next door has everything u need for the remainder of the day, snack-wise
