You can't beat the view at the Dartmouth Wooden Monkey - which is just a bonus, given the excellent food and service. The chocolate tofu dessert is exceptional, and rivals any other cream ganache out there. Delicious.

Our group of 4 loved our meals! Bruschetta for our appetizer was even better than we expected! 3 people in the group ordered from the evenings special menu and other got the salmon for main course. Everyone got desert as well and said it was a++. We can’t wait to return.

We made reservations for 6:00 PM and were seated promptly at a Harborview table. Bones was our server and provided outstanding server with great menu suggestions. I had a delicious cajun dish as did my friend. My husband as well as friend's spouse ordered the scallop pasta dish and said it was amazing. We had caramel cheesecake for desert, absolutely heavenly. We will be back.

Wooden Monkey is my husband and I’s go-to for date nights, the food is delicious and the staff are always great. We love that the menu has a fair amount of vegan options for him, and the restaurant has a great atmosphere.

Had a wonderful birthday dinner with 6 of us there on a Saturday evening. We had a reservation and when we arrived and seated, asked to be moved. The staff were able to move us with no problem. Our wait staff person was fantastic and very attentive. The food was amazing as always and everyone was very pleased with their meals. Special shout out to the onion dip - it was great! We all had drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert - and all was great. We'll be back!!
