Great evening great staff great atmosphere felt safe.
Waitress was delightful, they were able to make the goat cheese pasta dish vegetarian which was great!
So many options for those of us with food restrictions, I loved my meal and will return for sure.
I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! Thanks Emily and Adam and everyone for making us feel so welcome every single time. xx
Wooden monkey never disappoints. Good value, excellent food and wonderful staff!
Great service and great gluten free options! We enjoyed the braised beef and Korean pork tacos!
We live several hours away from Halifax, so we don't get the chance to eat here often. However, we have been coming for over 7 years and it is alway been consistent. Service is always 5 star, staff are knowledgable and great at giving recommendations. The only reason I give F&D 4 stars as I'm a wine drinker and the list doesn't really have enough options for my preference, however the food makes up for it.
Excellent meal. Entrees were delicious.
Another amazing experience at the Monkey! Consistently spectacular from the service to the food to the atmosphere. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The quality of the food is impressive. Highly recommend!
Excellent service. Delicious food! Overall a great experience and we will be back next time we are in Halifax!
Wonderful service and great food with accommodations for dietary restrictions and locally sourced food!
Kayleigh was a fantastic server!
We really loved the atmosphere but it got really loud as the evening went on. The service was above and beyond expectations and the food was excellent. We will be back.
Delicious food, cozy atmosphere, and super friendly service!
Waiter was very knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful.
Food was absolutely amazing everything was local and you could tell ingredients were of superior quality ! Our server was a little distracted and not the most attentive but overall great experience
Definitely will visit again when in Halifax.
We had a good lunch (fish cakes, lamb burger, kale ceasars) and our waiter (Christopher ?) was pleasant and engaging. Was nice to know that we were eating sustainable local food without anyone acting too precious about it.
Service was great. Food was excellent. First time eating there and will be back.
Was a wonderful evening of great company, dining and drinks. Service and food was top notch as always! Have always enjoyed The Wooden Monkey and will return many times ahead.
Loved the large selection of gluten free menu items. GF nachos are not easy to find in Halifax so they were a real treat for me. In fact the whole meal was fantastic. As was the service. Highly recommend this place.
Excellent service and exceptionally good food highly recommend
