Monkey Cat is an excellent restaurant. They have good food and service. The atmosphere is soothing and they have a full bar. The reason I gave them a 4 star is because sometimes it's not a five. I recommend going there.

My friend invited me to lunch at this restaurant. I had not been there for many years. The restaurant is very clean and the artwork on the walls very tasteful. The door was left open and the table where we were seated was too drafty. My friend asked the waitress to put us at a different table and that solved... More

We eat at Monkey Cat about 3 time a year. The staff is always friendly and helpful, the food very good and the bar and wine list extensive. This is a good place for a romantic dinner for two, dining out with others or even a celebration. While the prices are not inexpensive, if you want a 'nicer' restaurant than... More

We had walked around the street enjoying the shops and we spotted Monkey Cat. The menu looked good and we were ready for a cocktail. We spotted a parking place right in front which was perfect for...

Visited Auburn Saturday and had dinner at Monkey Cat. Everything was delicious. Looking forward to going back as this is now one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Atmosphere is great and service was fantastic!

The food, atmosphere, staff and owners are all wonderful. Being a vegetarian, there is not a huge selection for me, but all in all, I'd say it's the best restaurant in Auburn to 'take a date'.
