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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
