Fun atmosphere with local music, we had a variety of food and everything was good but the truffle fries are a must try and leave room for a spoonful of Pie!
Will return again.

We really enjoyed the dinner for our family of 5. The selection was varied and numerous. The food was excellent so was the service. We would come back.

We chose this place from a local who said to try it. The place was packed. Everyone ordered something different. We all thought our meals were delicious....plenty of food on our plates. I had a turkey burger, which is the best one I've ever tasted. The live band was a great accompaniment to our perfect evening!

Our server was great for everything...except keeping water in our glasses. We were okay to oversight this. We'd go back if we ever visit here again.

My wife and I were invited to join some new friends of ours in Maui at this hip and lively restaurant in Wailea and we loved the food, the live music and ambiance. Our only complaint would be that they seated us 1 hour late (we had reservations and showed-up on time), but that just gave us an opportunity to develop a nice appetite for the delicious, locally-sourced, organic menu items (like their pumpkin raviolis, wood-fired pizzas, and delicious salads). They also have a great assortment of draft beers and cocktails. Come around 9pm for happy hour!

After receiving numerous recommendations and passing by the ever-full restaurant, we decided to try MonkeyPod. The food, service, and atmosphere were all excellent. We tried the fish tacos, steak, grilled mahi mahi, chicken wings, and the kids pizza. The fish tacos were very tasty - not the best I've had but still quite good. The steak was really great, the mashed potatoes that accompany it have a slightly different flavour but were still delicious. The grilled mahi mahi and the chicken wings were also great. The only thing that we were kind of disappointed in was the kids pizza, it has asagio cheese which is very sharp and strong. If you love asagio then it's great, but if you're a kid who's expecting mozzarella then it's not. In addition, our waitress was lovely and the atmosphere of the restaurant is eclectic and fun. We would go back any day!
