I always find the service and food at the Wooden Monkey to be exceptionally good. I require special attention when dinning out because of a long list of allergies and food sensitivities. Both the front-house and kitchen staff are highly attentive and knowlegable about ingredients and food preparation. They do an excellent job helping me make informed menu choices, accommodating my dietary restrictions and preparing a delicious meal.

Worked with Matt to get a large group booked in for a team dinner. Although there were quite a few changes being made Matt was very accommodating with the requests

The Wooden Monkey is a favourite destination for us as individuals and for events. The quality of food, the warmth of the service, the way our event was provided for on Saturday - who could ask for more! Much thanks. Faythe Buchanan and Stephanie Allen.

We had a University Graduation Celebration so were in a somewhat secluded private room which was great. The food was incredibly delicious, very well presented, and expected cost. Our server was extremely polite and efficient, plus the kitchen had our food in a very timely manner!! Fantastic Overall Experience :)

We had a gathering of 35 for a retirement luncheon. Matt seated us in a private room which was absolutely perfect. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The Alderney Landing location is scenic and cozy - great for a group function or an intimate dinner. Thank you to everyone who took care of us Friday!

What a great place! We held a Retirement party for a coworker in a separate private, big room, which could sit about 35 people. On top of that they gave us another adjoining room for mingling before the dinner. What a great idea! It made it very personal and cosy to the guest of honor. We were allowed to decorate the main room and even had a little entertainment and speeches. The service was excellent, very professional and knowledgeable. Our server did not need to write our orders down, he remembered everything and everyone which was very impressive. Food was delicious, wholesome organic, obtained locally and healthy. Not bad for pricing of organic. Matt, the manager stayed in contact with organizer asking many questions like what we needed and how to accommodate us. Very positive experience and I recommend The Wooden Monkey for their food, friendliness, accommodating to all your needs and atmosphere, and also the view of the harbour. Fantastic place. The guest of honor had unforgettable experience. Many thanks to the Restaurant, the chef, management for all the attention we got and to fantastic staff.

We had a large group with a small window of time to order and eat before a show. The service was efficient without being rushed, the food was great and LOVED the view. Absolutely will go again and will recommend to others.

I have been going to the Wooden Monkey since the day it opened. The food and service are exceptional. The Wooden Monkey was ahead of it's time in promoting local foods, using recycled furniture and helping support the environment. A special mention about Matt. He is hugely knowledgable about food and wine, always takes the time to say hello and check on food and service. He is perfect in the hospitality industry.
