Our party of 15 was so delighted by our night at The Wooden Monkey. Our server, Courtney, took exceptional care of us. It was an absolutely beautiful evening we will not soon forget. Thank you!

Love the fact that as much as possible Nova Scotia ingredients are used and there are also vegetarian and vegan options (although I am neither). My favorite is the all meat pizza - it is the best pizza I've ever had :-)

Nice, cosy room with a beautiful view of the Halifax side of the harbour. Had the fish and roasties. Really tasty and apparently much healthier than the deep-fried equivalent. Excellent tartar sauce was much appreciated as it really elevated the meal. The tofu chocolate torte was off-the-charts delicious. Our server was very pleasant and provided the perfect level of attention. Looking forward to a return visit.

Only complaint were a couple of people next to me who found the rice bowl too salty. They mentioned it to the server. My pizza was excellent, as usual.

The service was excellent and they were accommodating and friendly. We had a large group with separate bills which can be complicated and they were all done without a problem and with a smile. Thank you very much for an excellent holiday celebration!

We had a great experience. Ended up that I booked the wrong time and day, but staff were very accomodating to get us on a new reservation a day earlier than anticipated. Our guests from Maine were very impressed.

Just a small thing...but my wife got an order of chocolate tofu pie to go as its her "go to" dessert when we eat at the Wooden Monkey.The portion size seemed a lot smaller than usual...my imagination?It was usually good value for money charged but I felt this time it wasn't..she said she may have to rethink it next time.Other than that always love your restaurant!

Waitress was experienced, attentive, accommodating & personable. All a customer could ask for or expect. Food was, well I think that my date was very happy with hers (not sure of dish); I was a bit disappointed with the "Roasted Chickpea Salad". I have been vegan for about 2 years so have eaten chickpeas many times. It was too dense and lacked flavour. It was O.K., tho'.

Small beet salad with shredded chicken is way over priced.
