Our server last night was fantastic. He was so pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. He helped with our apps and choosing mains. Start to finish we were so impressed. Vegan nachos were so good, I loved the cheese and I'm not vegan. Definitely will order again. My haddock was cooked and seasoned perfectly and rice was great. Only my second time visiting but will definitely be back soon.

Unfortunately, the food was mostly cold when it came out and the person in our party that ordered steak waited an extra 10-15 minutes for his dish. Something upstairs smelled a little funny. Nachos were super plain. However, the fact that there were good vegan options was nice.

Our server was top notch. We enjoyed our experience there. Then again, that is why we always eat at either the Dartmouth or Halifax restaurant whenever we come into into the City. This was the first time we made a reservation as we thought it might be busy with the holidays coming and it was handled we professionally. Great job gang!

We had our end of term dinner there. Everyone enjoyed it. It was very quick and easy to arrange the details with them. We go back every year because it is so good each time.

Our group was quite impressed with our entrees. Each one tasted delicious. A nice touch would have been to have some buns or bread served to us before our meals came out. All in all a great food experience though. The reservation process was easy and confirmation was received shortly after the reservation was made. Would likely eat here again! Thank you.

Our time was awesome at the Wooden Monkey. We had a big party so we had the whole upstairs to ourselves. The service was amazing, such nice, accommodating guys! And of course the food was great. Thank you!
