Delicious, quaint, healthy, and not-so-healthy if you’re in the mood. This place is perfect for lunch!

Incredible food. We had a larger group with various dishes and meals were served in a timely manner-together. We enjoyed the atmosphere. We love what the Monkey stands for and will be back soon.

A great spot, the owner implements environmentally appropriate practices like no ice, no straws. A good local beer selection too.

The food was nice and we had a lovely evening before our show. The location was also quite convenient for our purposes, as we were so close to the Scotiabank Centre.

First time dining here and I will be back for sure. Only complaint, if you can call it a complaint, was that there were two large groups dining and the way the tables were set it felt cramped for half of our table. There was room to maneuver but it felt cramped. Service was excellent and the food was phenomenal. I would recommend 10/10 times.

Wonderful meal. Really appreciate the initiative to only provide water if requested. The menu is excellent - it really caters to everyone with its vegetarian and vegan options.

I made reservations but the restaurant wasn’t very busy. Despite that, service wasn’t very responsive. We had to ask a couple of times for water refills and it took quite a while for food. The food was good but felt that the reviews oversold the restaurant. We went to several restaurants in Halifax during our vacation and think there are better options in the city.

Our 1st time at the Wooden Monkey was Nov 2018 but we’ve been back twice since. Each time we visit Halifax we go to the monkey and we make sure our guests come with us. The flavours are amazing. Love the concept of the local foods. The staff is always 100% friendly and super accommodating. Let me tell you, while all those things are true and I highly recommend the wooden monkey, what keeps me coming back...your superhero server. I took a picture of my receipt with the server name and I cherish it. Thanks for being awesome.

This was just all around a great experience. Making a reservation online was easy, our table was ready for us when we arrived, even though we were 10 minutes early, and the food was great! I have Celiac and I have heard great things about this place, and I enjoyed a nice safe meal. Truly gluten free pizza can be hard to come by but the cooks here must be very knowledgeable about cross contamination.

We had a great dinner at the wooden monkey. The lady who greeted us allowed us to choose a nice table window. I asked our server for suggestions on the drink menu and he took the time to explain the different beers on tap based on what I like to drink. Our food cake out quickly and was cooked exactly how my wife had requested. Will definitely be back.

A very ordinary experience by Halifax standards. My lentil burger was tasteless and the fries limp. At the end of the evening I felt rushed to leave. The waiter was over with the cash terminal just minutes after he gave us the bill. I had not indicated that I was ready to pay yet as we were chatting and drinking our coffee. I was quite rattled and annoyed by this. This has not been my experience anywhere else in this city. A shame.
