    Just wonderful

    This place is cozy with true class, you feel as if you are in a small cafe in Europe. The dining room oozes charm, is quaint and quiet. The food albeit somewhat expensive is amazing. The chopped salad is a big portion with different vegetables and the dressing is wonderful. The salmon tartar was wonderful as was the duck entree. The frozen Greek yogurt was scrumptious. The prices for drinks and food is on the high end but this is a true, classy dining experience and worth it.

    Where is my steak tartare and chopped salad?

    Although the new chef/menu are excellent and innovative I truly loved Monkey Bar for what I felt it was: a traditional old New York type dining experience with a menu to match- perfect ambiance and service as well. The new menu, while interesting, does not match the feel of the restaurant as well as the older menu did in my opinion. I am saddened that I can no longer seek Monkey Bar for a strong cocktail, a fabulous burger, my favorite chopped salad, and the best steak tartare in the city.

    Fabulous new chef

    We had a great experience, new chef,innovative menu from the appetizers to the dessert. Tuna appetizer was fresh, pork belly appetizer was sensational and the duck entree with figs was excellent. The server was the sweetest. Brought us additional desserts on the house. Just a wonderful dinner. Hope they succeed!

    Fell off

    We went at the end of the summer and the buzz was gone. Nobody worth mentioning goes here anymore it seems, and the food is tired. The tab is still the same though.

    Very nice staff and great service

    After reading some reviews, I was a little nervous about how I might be treated here, as I am not a regular or part of Graydon Carter's crowd, but I was incredibly surprised by just how nice and courteous everyone was. The food was actually quite good, as well. Was in NYC on business and stayed in the Elysee hotel and came in for a late supper-just the nicest service and good food. The wine selection was also quite good.

    Great classic NY restaurant

    I go to MB quite often 3 times a month usually for dinner though I love lunch in the cozy bar. It is what I think of when I want a great NY atmosphere and just great quality AMERICAN food. Nothing I really have to think about it is what it is nothing too precious or pretentious just a great execution. I have had the burger to the lobster thermidor both so different and both excellent. They have really great fries and they are always good. not something all restaurants can do. so its a classic swanky place with really good food. The service, seems like there is always new people there or maybe just no one memorable?? I just don't get that familiar feeling from the staff who are nice and mostly competent. I go back for the food and the room. It feels like "Old New York." thanks

    M0nkey Business

    The bar has lots of energy, but the dinning experience is lacking. Our Delmonico steaks were fatty and tough. To make matters worse, they were served cold. Save your money and go to "Out-Back,s"
