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.

We had one evening for a nice Auburn dinner and a local resident suggested Monkey Cat. We had two of the dinner specials, lamb stew and blackened halibut with mango salsa. We shared the lettuce wedge salad, with red onions, tomatoes, bacon bits, and blue cheese dressing. Delicious, ample portions, and beautifully presented. The wine list was extensive with lots of regional choices. Interesting cocktail list. Excellent service and comfortable ambiance with pleasant lighting. Five beautiful homemade desserts. Will come back another time for the rib eye steak and dessert.

Located in downtown Auburn, the Monkey Cat Restaurant offers an intimate dining experience for diners of all tastes. Their menu is varied and unique, but still offers a few comfort foods to their clientele. The lamb stew special was delicious. Although not an economy dining spot, one gets good value for the cost of the meal.
