Mothers Day! The food, service, and entertainment was excellent!


Great food. We all enjoyed our meal. They even had some live music since it was Mother’s Day that was great. I’d definitely come back!


Great Mother’s Day dinner with live music. Food was great!


Wait staff was quick and attentive. Live music was a bonus. Happy about outdoor seating.


Stick to the main menu. I ordered the special - NY Strip, it was not a good cut of meat. Mushrooms were the side dish, undercooked, tough and chewy.


Not at the top of their game - quantity winning over quality right now. Don’t think of going without a reservation. Parking now requires payment.


Had the macadamia crusted mahi-mahi and of course a mai-tai Everything was excellent and our server Paige was exceptional. She did a great job !

Food was underwhelming. Pizza was thin crust with so much cheese it was just a blob. The kids meal pasta was BURNING HOT. I don’t even know how they got it that hot (or why, for a kid) or how it stayed that hot the whole meal. Two kids waited so long for it to cool down that they didn’t eat it because the flies had been swarming it for so long. Yes, we stirred it and blew on it. Still burning hot. Very odd. Any place that has a $50 pasta dish is a racket, and we live in San Diego where it takes a lot to get sticker shock. The worst part was the flies. We couldn’t even enjoy our dinner because they were just EVERYWHERE all over the food the whole time. There are multiple ways to avoid that and I wish they would figure it out. It ruined our experience. Our server was great and the host staff was very kind when I increased our party earlier in the day. Other than that, I don’t understand what people are raving about here.


Mother’s Day. First time eating at MonkeyPod. The food was mediocre. Ordered the Lobster special. Was told it was a 10oz Lobster and without the shell it would be 8 oz. Well it was more like 2oz without the shell. Was not worth the price. Ribeye was just okay, nothing outstanding and again for the price it was not worth it. Finally, the MaiTai that supposed to be fabulous was lousy. The only thing I can say was our server was pleasant and always checking on us. Our server really knows how to pitch the food. Too bad the food was not how it was pitched to us. Will not go back there again. Especially because of the high price and lackluster food.


Between the food, drinks, desserts, and atmosphere this place has it all. Would definitely go again


Corn chowder was excellent. Our server was amazing! She was attentive, sweet and very good at her job!
