This is where we go for a quiet and very good dinner. The service is always good and the menu is varied enough for everyone's taste.

We go to the Monkey Cat several times a year, and always enjoy dining on the outdoor patio. The food is always good, and the service excellent. The bar and wine list selections are large, and they feature many local wineries.
