Good wine and food at this local restaurant.
This is a great place for a family dinner, and they have delicious sea food at good prices. The shrimp is especially good here, it tastes really fresh. I recommend trying it out if you haven't already. Great wine too, and large selection of my favorite Chanti wine.
Price Range: $25 - $50

Great Catering!
I have enjoyed Funky Monkey's incredible food on a number of occasions, and have always been extremely pleased! I would especially recommend Funky Monkey for catering. Eddie and his incredible staff catered an event for well over 300 people for our group, and they did an incredible job. People raved over the quality and quantity of the gourmet menu the Funky Monkey chefs prepared. The bar service was wonderful, as drinks were served quickly and efficiently, avoiding the bar back-up that so frequently happens with groups of this size. But with Funky Monkey's professional service and attention to detail, everyone had as much food and drink as they pleased, with ease. We especially enjoyed the beef sliders and ahi tuna appetizers that were served! It is one thing to prepare incredible food for restaurant parties; it is another thing to take a gourmet menu to a grand scale and dazzle the tastebuds of more than 300 people! I strongly recommend Funky Monkey to anyone who is looking for a memorable dinner or for a caterer for events, large and small.

Pros: Amazing food and professional service
Recommended: Yes

One of my favorite places
I can bring anyone here from my 86-year-old parents, to college students and everyone in between. Unpretentious but distinctive. Food is wonderful, good wine in various price ranges. Make a reservation for weekends. The earlier, really, the better. It was WAY too crowded around 8:30 on a Saturday night....but maybe it was just that particular Saturday night.

Pros: Good selections, fun atmosphere
Cons: A bit crowded
Recommended: Yes

A great locals place - great food - decent wine
When you drive by this place on Mills - if you blink or yawn you'll miss it . Nothing notable from the outside - other than the monkey on the sign is a bit scary looking. But when you step inside that's where the fun begins -- you feel transformed and almost need a double take - you're likely to think 'this is what I expected from the outside'.
The best part of the experience is really the food (which is a good thing considering it IS a restaurant). A differnet approach to the menu 1/3 sushi and the rest more traditional american contempory and fusion plates. The sushi is good - large rolls that are quite filling...all good but fairly pedestrian- so if you're looking for unusual sushi - look elsewhere. The appetizers are good - some interesting options - from asian to mediterranean inspired. The entrees are the best part in my opinion - ingredients taste fresh - the presentations are not overly complicated and the dishes are a little lighter but certainly satisfying...the pork tenderloins is great as are the several seafood entrees that I've had.
The wine list is okay and there are some decent selections -- but being the wine lover/snob that I am - found it a bit disappointing for a restaurant that also calls itself a wine bar.
The part of the experience with the greatest opportunity is the service - they are nice and friendly - but it is consistently slow -- it may not be their fault - but it takes awhile for the food to come out of the order all your courses up front if you want to enjoy an even pace for the meal.
Overall - one of the better local restaurants - with the great food the slow service is bearable.

Pros: food, value
Cons: slow service
Recommended: Yes
