Good varied menu, can eat and talk at your own pace, friendly service, good reservation system.
The entire staff were extremely friendly and attentive. I can’t remember receiving this level of service anywhere else in a very long time. We can’t wait to come back. Top notch!!!!
Sue knew about us and made us feel special. she was patient. And she was so great about the complexity of the bill. The fog lifted and the table was fabulous.
Always love the local flare never dissatisfied!
I was there for a meeting of a local group of artists, and we all enjoyed a chance to have a meal together and chat.
Our server was amazing. The food was delish as always. The venue was perfect for our group. Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks again!
Our first visit.....excellent on all regards especially the desserts...kudos to Chris We’ll be back soon. Thanks
My first time at the Dartmouth location. It was great.
Amazing night - thank you
Great restaurant for family gatherings. Beautiful view of the harbour and friendly service.
Our guest of honour and every one of our guests thoroughly enjoyed their experience Friday evening celebrating our special milestone birthday at the Wooden Monkey! Thank you for allowing us to come in in the afternoon to prep for the party with the addition of some personal touches. Staff was very attentive and helpful to us throughout the afternoon and evening. The Wooden Monkey was recommended to us by several people. We would definitely recommended the Wooden Monkey to others. Sincerely, Sharon
Online reservation system is terrific...what a time saver!
I used to love the monkey, and it's still okay, but just missing the something special it used to have. Also very dated inside, and didn't seem clean. Burger wasn't nearly as good as I remember it being a few years ago.
Food was great but a bit over priced.
The atmosphere was superb, the layout of the restaurant gives you a relaxed feeling with so much character. Who doesn't love monkeys? The table had a tree routed through the center! Our meals were absolutely delicious and plentiful. Everyone had options, my 5 year old, vegetarian spouse and meat lovers. The staff were very personable and charming. Well rounded restaurant with a nice view of the harbour. We will make this spot part of our dinner nights on a regular basis.
Everything was great! Service, food and atmosphere! It's so great to have this great dinner option in Dartmouth!
Can’t beat that view or service! Had a great time. Thanks again.
Great atmosphere and the food and service never disappoints!
Everything excellent, the only issue we had was that our main came before e ere half way done our appetizer.
Chris was our waiter and he was phenomenal. Went above and beyond in his efforts to make this a memorable evening for the 8 of us.
For family dinners we love to head out to The Wooden Monkey! Great menu for those with food issues (And those with none☺️) Everyone is friendly and helpful. They are also very understanding with young children and that is much appreciated. I also love they source local when they can. Thanks Chris for great professional service! The Walker/Britton crew.
Absolutely loved the food, service, and view. Will be bringing my parents here when they come to visit.
Always a fantastic spot to go to and comforting knowing they can accommodate my dietary restrictions.
