We had a really nice dinner and our guests all enjoyed the Wooden Monkey. Our server was really friendly and took good care of us.
Great food, atmosphere and service! We had a group of 10 for dinner and had a wonderful evening!
Absolutely love hosting events at Wooden Monkey! The staff and food are just amazing!!
Really enjoyed the whole Dining experience. Will recommend it to others and definitely return. Like the location. Lovely view.
The service was top notch. Our waitress was friendly, funny and extraordinarily accommodating. She made our evening, helping us organize our after dinner plans. A great start to a great night out!
Great location and atmosphere. Excellent food and service. Fantastic views. Good prices. Very accommodating of special meal requests (ie. picky eaters). Awesome experience!

Great service and food!
We had our wedding reception dinner for 24 people June 2019. The manager and staff were very helpful offering suggestions and catering to all our needs. We had a private room with an adjoining room for cheese crackers punch and our cake cutting. We also had direct access to the deck to view the spectacular views of Halifax harbour, ferry, bridge and city lights. A spectacular venue, great service and menu. Highly recommended for private functions and general dinning.
Food was excellent and plentiful.
I love dining at Wooden Monkey Dartmouth for the quality, delicious menu selection, athmosphere, and service.
Service was amazing! Our waitress was very good! Food was great too
Thank You Need 1 in london ontario
Quick service. Delicious food!
Becca was an incredible server. She was attentive but didn’t hover, and didn’t make our large group feel rushed. We always have excellent service and Becca was no exception to that. Thanks for an enjoyable dinner!
Matt Glass is by far the most amazing service provider. Impeccable attention to detail.... the food was ready upon my arrival (large take out).........my guests raved about the quality!....
Food and service were all great. Liked the gluten free options for sure! Would recommend it to others to dine there!
Had a table of 12 people celebrating my wife birthday. The night was filled with mistakes, errors, slow service and excuses. After a long evening of frustration impacting all of the guest I declined to tip the staff. The waitress (Sue) confronted me by interrupting the conversation at the table. I explained why I choose not to leave a tip, which she didn't take well and I followed with you can have Matt (Owner/Manager) contact me to chat about my experience. Not surprising, I didn't receive a call as I suspect the message was not passed along. With this being said, we have visited this restaurant location many times and our previous experience back in February was unbeatable.
Our favourite with the grand kids in tow.
We threw a birthday party for a friend and we were able to book the tree table for 10 and then have two extra tables for seven additional guests and because they were caught in proximity to each other it made it a very festive event and people could intermingle. The waitress assigned to our group was fantastic and the service was very good despite how complicated our various needs for additions were. The weather was good and we were able to avail ourselves of the patio which was nice for the younger members of the group who went out onto the patio we had a fantastic view of the harbour at the end of the evening as it was a clear night. We took the ferry from Halifax over to Dartmouth and this was very efficient in terms of parking and transportation. The ferry running every 12 to 15 minutes.
Always like the Monkey. Great cocktails! View - second to none. Service - perfect. Oh, and did I mention the food? Excellent meal - all 4 of us.
Great place to eat, staff is very welcoming to people of all ages...…………..you can't beat the view.
Best restaurant and atmosphere this side of the harbour
I specifically addressed my food allergy with our server, and she acknowledged that she will accommodate for it. In spite of that, I was served (without my knowledge) the specific food I am allergic to. I have since spend the last 2 days very sick. The reason we chose the Wooden Monkey to eat at was because of their "conscience' food knowledge. I will not be back, and I will make sure to let other Celiac's know that this restaurant was not conscience about my food allergy.
Always a pleasure to dine here. Overlooking the harbour amazing. Food is delicious and like the fact local is great . Don’t think I had a bad meal yet . Our waitress , she was great !
