2021 Orlando Dining Awards: Editor's Choice, Best Newcomer  Brooke Fehr, Orlando Magazine

"The space, at once upscale and comfortable, is welcoming, and so are the dishes coming out of Executive Chef Josh Oakley’s kitchen. (Oakley is pictured above.) More comfort food than Southern, diners will delight in playful riffs on nostalgic favorites."

Orlando's Living Room: The Monroe  Brooke Fehr, Orlando Magazine


"As I walked through the front door—you can’t miss it, flanked by greenery and topped with a cool, flashy, retro sign—I was immediately struck by the beautiful decor, and how it softened the industrial space, with its high ceilings, wall of windows and exposed ductwork. As with sister Good Salt Group restaurants, Seito Sushi, The Osprey and Reyes Mezcaleria, the space is stunning."

The Monroe in Creative Village is a paradigm of modern comfort, in design and cuisine

  Faiyaz Kara, Orlando Weekly


"Jason and Sue Chin, the power couple behind some of the most well-received restaurants in the city have arguably wielded the most influence [on Orlando's restaurant scene]. Their latest, the Monroe, isn't just their most accessible, it's their most fetching, and if you've been to Seito Sushi, The Osprey and Reyes Mezcaleria, you know that's saying a lot."

Things are peachy, literally, at The Monroe in downtown Orlando   Amy Drew Thompson, Orlando Sentinel


"The latest in the portfolio of Orlando restaurateurs Jason and Sue Chin of the Good Salt Restaurant Group, it features the stylish flair we’ve all come to expect... and a menu that executive chef Josh Oakley says centers on a common theme: fun."

"Jason Chin, the co-owner of the Good Salt Group, said he wanted to showcase some of Orlando’s history with the Monroe.

“We wanted to make sure that we definitely honored that,” Chin said. It’s very Florida-themed, very Orlando-themed kind of a homage to Orlando and the history that we have here and particularly in this neighborhood. That’s something that we wanted to preserve in the Parramore neighborhood which is why we named the restaurant the Monroe."
