We took a friend visiting from HI to Monkey Cat for my husband's birthday. Dinner was fabulous--lamb stew was awesome, although not on the regular menu. We each ordered a different meal, and none of us was disappointed!! Great evening had by all!!

Nice Bay Area style restaurant in Auburn. Modern food and drinks. Went for Christmas Eve dinner, everything was delicious and the staff was cheery and pleasant for working on Christmas Eve. Cranberry Moscow mule was delicious. I look forward to going back.

Had dinner with my husband here tonight. He ordered a special Sea Bass, I ordered the Chicken Cordon Bleu. We were so happy how everything turned out. Yes a bit pricey but for the deliciousness in every bite we are satisfied.

I find the food to be average and the cost high for the quality of food served. The service was acceptable but nothing outstanding. I also found it to be noisy inside.
