About The Wooden Monkey - Dartmouth
The Wooden Monkey is a restaurant with a conscience. Local. Sustainable. Organic. NS grown meat. Gluten Free. Vegetarian.
The Wooden Monkey believes that sustainable agriculture protects our environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare — it also produces foods that are better for you than the highly processed industrial alternatives and you sure can taste the difference!
The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.
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.
I had beef which had very little taste and the presentation was terrible. Was very noisy and tables were too close together furniture looked old, there was a dirty table cloth on the table which they removed for me. service was very good was not worth the price would not go back
Always enjoy the veggie pizza here.
Great menu. I wanted to try everything
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
We had a private room for a group event and everything ran so smoothly. Sue was our server and managed to keep the bills straight and everyone happy. Thanks so much!
Very nice place to dine, the view was great along with food and service.
The Nappa fish tacos are worth going back for.
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.
The food was OK, but the price does not worth the tiny portion
Great food and enjoyed our time.
Another wonderful meal!!!
Excellent service and delicious meal.
We sat inside and the cushioned chairs were ratty!(so embarrassing)There were a fair amount of customers enjoying the patio area and i did not think they were overly busy, we were there at 1pm, but it took 1/2 an hour to get drinks and 1 hr for food (they were out of mussels so we didnt order any appetizers) The waiter was pleasant enough and tried her best. I felt bad that we chose this place for my sisters bday, she had selected it because she enjoyed it a year ago. The place has a nice atmosphere , looking right onto the harbour but the food was so so and expensive.
Wow was very pleased with the evening,the waitress was wonderful, the food fantastic with great choices will be back❤
More comfortable seating out on the patio.
Our server, Alex was outstanding, always attentive, seemed to anticipate when something was needed without being asked. Great sense of humour, really added to an overall great dining experience. All positive, glowing comments on the menu variety and the food itself. For a party of 12 people, having zero negatives is awesome. Our out of province guests and a couple of first timers were very impressed.
Always great food and ambiance at the wooden monkey!
great service. waitress was very friendly and attentive. nice deck over looking the harbour
It was an excellent experience but we found the service very slow. There was only a few of us for lunch, it was delicious. Other friends from our convention joined us later - almost all provinces were represented there that day. Everyone enjoyed being there, the view, riding the ferry back and forth; truly a great experience.
On my online reservation, I requested an outside table and that it was a special occasion (anniversary) When we arrived early, they had set up our table inside. There was was no one else outside at the time. Granted, it was very hot and humid, however, I am not sure why the request could have been granted without us arriving and asking to be moved outside. Aside from that, the service and food was great.
