Service was wonderful, atmosphere is beautiful and everyone enjoyed the food. Only negative is that it is a little pricey for lunchtime.

Had a lovely lunch with my aunt who was visiting from Ontario. She loved it. She wanted me to choose the restaurant, so I chose my favourite. Did not disappoint. Chocolate tofu pie yummmmmmmmmm.

Our server was amazing. She was kind and quick thinking, as one of the ladies felt faint, she acted quickly and respectfully. She brought orange juice and a little bowl of nachos, showed us the exit to get fresh air. She allowed us to meet and didn't rush the evening. Unfortunately I didn't catch her name, we were a group of 15 women on Saturday night at 530 pm in a room by ourselves. I hope she is recognized as an asset to your business as we all commented on her calm, compassionate excellent service.

Everything was great. The server, whose name I can’t remember, was very professional and attentive. The food met or exceeded everyone’s expectations.

Higher prices did not reflect quality of food. Expected more from a burger plate for $17. Seems the excellent view added $2-3 to each entree and frankly not worth it.

Our server was excellent, the food was delicious but the snooty old people who didn’t seem to like kids were a bit of a downer.

We were absolutely delighted with every aspect of our event (a wedding rehearsal party). Leading up to the party, Matthew was very helpful in providing information and suggestions. The event itself was well catered, the food service was perfectly timed and drink service was prompt. The food was delicious and enjoyed by all. Feedback from guests was without exception positive. The layout of the event room was perfect. Most of the guests were from out of province and out of country. The view from the room was impressive, especially to the many who were visiting Halifax for the first time. Having access to a section of the outdoor patio was a lovely bonus! Thank you Rylee and Matthew for the exceptional and courteous service you provided. Thank you Wooden Monkey for the wonderful food. It meant a lot that most of what was served was locally sourced. I would highly recommend the Wooden Monkey as a venue for a special event. Kelly Corbett

Every thing was great but, I had the fish and roasties, I thought there should be more fish and less potatoes.My husband really like the pulled pork/beef burger. Staff was great, service was great! Enjoy all my visits to the Dartmouth Wooden monkey.
