“Excellent Food”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

The food & drinks here rock! The salads are good portion sizes and the lobster pizza was a real treat! We tried a Mai Tai and it was probably the best one we had on the island. Definitely go if you get a chance.

Food was delicious and there was a good selection. I have food allergies and the staff accommodated me and provided great service. Lots of local ingredients!

“Great happy hour food”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

I was recently in Maui where my wife and I decided to try a bunch of restaurants. We had recently been to the Monkeypod on Oahu and knew they had a great late night happy hour, so we tried the one in Wailea too. The happy hour is great! You can get half off the pizzas and most of the appetizers. They also had drink specials, and since dinner is not that cheap here, the happy hour was great. We had the mushroom pizza, which was delicious. We also tried the Poke tacos. The crispy taco shell added a nice texture to the ahi, which just melts in the mouth. The food and service were very consistent between the two locations. The service is great, and if they do make a mistake, they definitely make it up to you. We ordered a salad that didn't show up, but they ended up getting it to us late and not charging for it. I would definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant if you are staying on Maui or Oahu.

“Little pricy”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

Been to Maui many times and Monkeypod always a favorite. Food is consistently high quality and always very tasty. They have a good variety on the menu, and the are very creative when it comes to seasoning. My favorite is the fish tacos and steak. Its a busy place so could be waiting to get in, but its worth it. The reason I gave four stars was I believe it was a little pricy, especially the drinks. I guess happy hours the time to go.
