Monkitail was amazing! I brought my friends out after reading the reviews and I couldn’t be happier! We ate from every section of the menu, the Loli pop lamb chops were to die for! Our favorites were the duck bao bun , sea bass and special tuna tacos! It was busy for a Sunday night and the restaurant has a beautiful decor and vibe. Can’t wait to come back on the weekend and check out Nokku!
AMAZING FOOD AND GREAT SERVICE!!!
Diego the waiter was VERY PROFESSIONAL and VERY NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
High class restaurant dining experience!!!
We had an Excellent and Amazing time!!!
Everything was excellent, however, the pricing was a little outrageous for this market. I wouldn't pay that in NYC for the same. They need to rethink that.
what a wonderful place
food is amazing
staff very attentive
one of my favorite places
Amazingly delicious food. Beautiful ambiance ! Great Service! Not much more you can ask for in a restaurant!
Great experience. Pavlo was an amazing waiter and took care of us to the Max!
Day or night looks same , good presentation and taste
Pavro the server is excellent.
Pablo is great! Absolutely made our experience wonderful and informative.
Our server, Erica, was one of the best I've ever had. No joke. She was nice, attentive and so knowledgeable about the menu. She was attentive without being annoying. Her timing was great. Her recommendations were spot on.
The food was great. We did the chef's tasting and tried something from each section of the menu and nothing disappointed. I had the signature Monkitail cocktail - really just a smoky take on a Manhattan. It was great but $15 per. The restaurant was really cool and modern. I wish this place was open near me. My wallet is happy it isn’t.
The food was very delectable. Every bite counted. Each different tasting was a firework in your mouth! Thank you for an amazing night and a memory to be treasured.
Absolute the best meal I've ever had!!!! Thank you Pablo for making our experience wonderful!!!
We loved it! The tapas style allowed us to enjoy so many options- all were absolutely delicious- especially the tuna rice cracker.
Great dinner with friends. We did the chefs tasting 10 course dinner and it blew us away!
Amazing 10 course selection. Every dish was unique and delightful. Service by Pavel was incredible probably one of the best servers we have encountered. Will definitely recommend to anyone and come back on our next visit to Miami.
We love this place, but haven’t been in a while. They replaced the cod fried rice with shrimp fried rice, which was a little disappointing, but everything was excellent. The duck bao buns are unreal. One of our favorite places
Awesome, clean taste, tantalizing food. Great atmosphere for just about any occasion. We took our baby with us and it was just fine.
Wonderful dining experience. I had the tasting menu which was an adventurous food experience--from buttery toro tuna, spicy shrimp taco, hamachi sushi roll, grilled octopus and pork belly skewers, melt-in-your mouth sea bass, charred brussel sprouts, heart of palm salad, shitaki gyoza..... Linda was a great waitress, not intrusive and just enough attention to make you feel like she was paying attention and wanted to make sure that you were enjoying your meal. Lovely ambience and the only fault i could find was that it was a liitle too dim and loud. That being said, i would not hesitate to return!
The ambiance and the food is great. The service is a little slow, you need to wait for your waitress to come by if you have some additional orders. But overall, it is an excellent experience. Highly recommended.
Great experience. The food was good too
Try the ice cream sushi!!
Try the smoked bacon! So good! Unctuous! The fish was fresh and the service was excellent!
This restaurant was charming, quirky, and delicious. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. The food as superb and served on beautiful little plates with a flow to the service that made the experience wonderful. I had a 12 piece sashimi sampler that if it would not look bad I would have reordered. I "settled" for a marvelous Kobe Beef sushi appetizer. We live about 60 miles from this place and will be back with our friends.
Could not have asked for better service, meal and overall experience. Will definitely go back again!
Monkitail was a great experience. Took a visitor from out of town here her first night and was impressed about the diplomat and monkitail. Great food.
Food was Amazing!! We visit the Philly locations & enjoy them so figured we try Monkitail and food and drinks were awesome!
Service was good but they kept trying to take our plates while there was still food on them! Without asking, they would come by and swipe the plate away while we were talking and we had to call them back. This seems to be the trend in restaurants today. All of a sudden an arm swoops in to remove a plate or glass without asking, interrupting conversation. I know this is their training, but I find it very intrusive.
The waitstaff shine!!! So helpful and knowledgeable! The red snapper, yellowtail, and salmon were so fresh and delicious! Excellent!
The atmosphere is romantic with low lighting which is great for a romantic date night with the wife or a friend. The food is fantastic, you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Overall excellent choice.
Muy lindo y bien atendido como una comida de muy buen nivel. Es muy caro, sin embargo, para el nivel mostrado.
Chef’s tasting menu for the win!!
We were seated right away. They accommodated the type of table my wife wanted. The service was excellent. The food was great. My wife had the venison, Lamb Chop and sirloin steak which she absolutely loved. I had the tuna, spicy tuna roll which are all very good. The swordfish meatball because of the need for some breading was not as good as the others. A nice bottle a French red wine completed the evening.
I met one of my girlfriends for dinner at Monkitail. She has been before but this was my first time. We had a late reservation, but were sat right away. We were sat at a corner round table, which was perfect for us to catch up. Our server Henry was fantastic. We started with a bottle of wine. He suggested for us to do the chefs tasting. We agreed, seemed like a good way to try a lot of dishes. We let Henry pick our dishes, and we were not disappointed! The spicy hamachi dish was so fresh and delicious. The duck buns, and sea bass were all stars as well. Everything came out in a timely manner, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed late into the night, and then were brought back to the hidden bar in the back. There was a DJ, and karaoke. The bartenders Mike and Colby were very welcoming. They set us up in a room to try out and made delicious espresso Martinis! What a fun night, I could not have asked for anything more.
Very cool restaurant. We ordered the tasting sampler but waited a long time between servings. If we go back we’ll have to try an individual plate. Nice place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or date night.
Excellent as always, delicious food with a lot of different options.
Monkitail was a true experience from start to finish. This was my second time at the restaurant and was treated like royalty. The tasting menu was the best value in FL! Coming from NY this meal would easy be 150 dollars a person but it is 65$ for ten courses and you can add lobster and Kobe for just 3$ more! The whole table enjoys the menu family style and the food is almost overwhelming with three dishes coming at a time over four course. The tables favorite were the tuna crispy rice, edamame dumplings, and Sea Bass was phenomenal. My personal favorite was the duck Shabu ramen style in a traditional cast iron skillet packed with vegetables and an amazing broth!!! We stopped by Nokku their hidden lounge and had the Monkitail a double perfect Manhattan with a show of fire and smoke and great flavor what a way to end the meal!
Expensive but food was good. Service was not so good waited for drinks and I had to get up to go to bar which wasnt busy and get my own drink. Overall price was higher for Florida. More like NYC, which I am use to. Ambiance was great!
Not the best experience
Food is delivered quickly. Waitstaff and management very accommodating for food allergy; however, kitchen does not closely adhere to restrictions. Use caution if dining with allergies. The management was very apologetic for the repeated mistakes, and they gave free celebratory champagne and sake shots for our guests.
The food was great, the service was great from start to finish, and the ambience was great. Angela greeted us very nicely up front. Mateo and Brandon delivered exceptional service throughout the night. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend.
