If you enjoy Belgian beer's, this is a great stop. It's attached to the Bastone Brewery/Vinotecca Wine Bar complex, so it makes for convenient outing of eats and drinks. The beer selection is amazing, though the bottle prices are what you would normal expect (i.e....More

This is a smaller, attached pub behind Bastone. A few tables & 8 bar stools. It's the perfect place to go for higher-end Belgian beers & a basket of hand cut fries with gourmet dipping sauce. The bartenders are always friendly & super - knowledgeable...More

Monk Beer Abbey seems to be a nice place for lunch or dinner, with a great selection of beers. I visited with a few friends, and it was a fun evening. This restaurant is under the same roof as another restaurant, so it was a...More

The staff is very accommodating and the atmosphere is great! They have a variety of Belgian beers and their food is very tasty. Definitely recommend getting the mussels!

If you like sea food then this place is a must try for mussels. Try their combination one and don't miss the chorizo one. Watch out for the beers. Some of the beers have insane prices. Always ask for the price before you buy. Bastone...More

The only thing good about this place was the beer. We were the only diners in the place and my food came to me lukewarm. My fries were soggy, definitely not fried twice and only had seasoning on 3. I ordered the chicken waffle sandwhich...More

We attempted to get a table at Bastone, but they didn't have anything available. The hostess suggested finding a table at Monk. She said we could order beers and food from the Bastone menu or try the Monk menu. We found a table and ended...More

Bar was full at Bastone so was directed to Monk Beer Abbey. Bonus! What may be the best burger ever - pork cheek burger with chimichurri. And don't do this without the pommes frites.

Rude and passive aggressive server. Called one of us a rude name. Then, instead of directly telling us they were closing, he flashed lights on and off, then got snarky because we didn't understand the hint.

I do not work for Monk, but I do know you can get gift cards. They are from Bastone, which is connected to it and it mentions that you can use it at Monk as well. I would suggest looking up on Bastone's website and you will... More
