Visiting the area, I checked with trip advisor for a good pizza place for lunch. As always, trip advisor steered us to a fantastic place! There were two adults and 2 kids in our party. We adults ordered a house salad to share. It was excellent with shivered almonds, blue cheese, bacon, red onion and mixed greens with balsamic dressing.... More

Stopped in here for lunch a few weeks back with my brother to split a pizza. But there was so much more! First, their small range of really good local beer on tap was tapped and at the table in minutes. The Garlic & Cheese breadsticks were delicious and could be a 'beer and snack' meal on their own. I... More

We called in to order our food for takeout. They said it would be ready in about a half hour. Instead of 30 minutes, it took 50 minutes. It was very busy. We ordered a pear salad, the meatball pasta, chicken Alfredo, and the large barbarian pizza. The food was very good! We especially enjoyed the pizza.

Ownership has changed multiple times, but one thing remains the same - delicious pizza! Easily the best pizza in Renton. The seating area is small, but you can usually get a table. Tonight we did take out, and the pizza definitely didn't disappoint!

Ordered two pizzas and an order of chicken wings, using food to go, pizza was fresh and hot. The service was speedy and economical. Plenty of toppings to fill a teenage boy.

We took a group of 17 for an after work event. Sampling several of their signature pizzas convinced me to use them for takeout rather than our regular pizza place. Hand tossed dough and a proper wood fired oven are a great starting place for a solid pizza joint. Prices on beer seemed quite reasonable, though it might have been... More

Just flew into town, saw the reviews, needed yo go.somewhere near ournplace, and the kids always want pizza. We're happy we tried it out. All the staff was great from front to back. Garlic bread was delicious. A family of five ordered separate pizza slices, and a couple of orders of pasta and meatballs. The family was satisfied with everything... More

I have been to Smoking Monkey a few times and each time is always interesting - in a good way. I have ordered the pizzas, pastas and flatbreads and have always been delighted, that is, my tummy has been delighted. Normally I would say no to fried cauliflower, but Smoking Monkeys' fried cauliflower is delicious. Fresh ingredients and happy employees... More

The restaurant is small, but quaint with a very good staff. They had a good choice of pizzas, but the quality and taste of the pizzas was only ok. It was somewhat of a disappointment.
