Sat outside which was nice, they had live music, had the poke tacos and the bourgeois pizza which is the lobster pizza with mushrooms, not bad but greasy. Poke mediocre. It's what you expect to pay when you re in a resort area. Staff was very nice.

We had a great dinner at this place and wish we would have discovered earlier in our trip. The live music was great and kept my kids entertained. All of us enjoyed our entrees.

Went there 3 different nights. The live music outside was nice, Opah fish special was great, lamb was cooked perfectly. Service was good some nights but off on others. Would return

Great drinks and good food with perfect portions. The baba ghanoush is a favorite app we get every time. Can catch live music by local artists.

Food was good, we enjoyed most of what we ordered. Service was just okay. The server or kitchen messed up one of our meals and it took a very long time to get the correct meal (it was a salad). There was really no apology and the rest of our party had finished eating by the time it was delivered.

We have died at Monkeypod twice during our stay in Ko Olina, once for lunch and once for dinner at happy hour. Both times the food and drink was very good and the wait staff was energetic, knowledgeable and friend. Dinner at happy hour is a good deal on apps, drafts and handcrafted drinks. Given the somewhat pricey menu typical... More

Great place for happy hour on the westside with paradise sunshine, live music, crafted beer and yum food selections. I love the Hamakua mushroom pizza. Must try a Mai Tai with lilikoi froth. Be careful with 2nd Mai Tai for it is delish yet strong 'alcoholwise' but oh so good! Take a dip in the ocean before your visit and... More

We ate here twice on our visit to Oahu and both times the food was great! We went one night during happy hour (I believe it starts at 9pm) and they had great deals on pizzas and appetizers. The truffle fries are delicious!! We enjoyed our pizza and burger as well. The second time we went for lunch and got... More

Every year, we spend our Easter break here in Ko Olina. With that said, there's not enough places to dine and so we come here every time we're in town. Food is good if you order the right dishes. Dishes are quite expensive while the portions are small to back it up. The place is very noisy as it's always... More

This restaurant focuses on locally produced food, which in Hawaii this is a plus (since so much food is not grown on the island). We had small plates, a variety of appetizers each time we ate there. Dining outdoors was great and each time there was live entertainment. Great flat breads! Be sure to check for the "happy hour" when... More
