About The Wooden Monkey - Dartmouth
The Wooden Monkey is a restaurant with a conscience. Local. Sustainable. Organic. NS grown meat. Gluten Free. Vegetarian.
The Wooden Monkey believes that sustainable agriculture protects our environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare — it also produces foods that are better for you than the highly processed industrial alternatives and you sure can taste the difference!
The chef uses so much pepper that we could not taste the fish or sweet potatoes. Also the sweet potatoes were way over cooked-they were like mush. When we told our server -Kaylee- who was very friendly /efficient-they deducted our bill by half-which was fair-however too bad that it was not the usual excellent standard of food.
Amazing food and atmosphere
I always enjoy going. The fact that I can order off the menu without any issues is huge for me as I can’t have anything cow related. The most important thing is they support local. I am a huge on that.
Excellent place to eat, a wonderful view of the harbour, and fantastic food.
We find the music really annoying. More for the under 30 crowd .Tragically hip Really ???.Would prefer something more soothing to match the ambiance.
Nice dining experience.
Amazing, flavourful food. Excellent choice on the menu for all tastes.
We are a work group of 16 and were placed in the private dining area so we were away from other patrons in the restaurant. Our waitress Rebecca was excellent and joked around with us and the food was devoured. Everyone enjoyed being able to get out socially during COVID.
Music was a bit loud.
Delicious food and really great friendly service.
Wonderful views. Good service. Food is just mediocre. Had roasted potatoes that half were hot and fresh and the other half cold and stale. Even MacDonalds can serve hot fries.
Lovely evening for seven guests and very Covid-19 protocol compliant! Everyone loved their food. Would definitely do it again.
We were a group of six, on a Zoom meeting. Perfect experience.
