About The Wooden Monkey - Halifax
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!
Even with a reservation, our (large) group had a 45 min wait. Although the wait staff was apologetic, complimentary drinks or something would have been nice.
Our group loved the place. Staff were excellent & the food was great. Enjoyed by all. We arrived a half hour earlier than planned but you were ready for us. Thanks for the hospitality!
Great service good food a little pricy
I love this restaurant! I like that it sources out locally and you have healthy choices on the menu - from vegan to gluten free. The service always amazing - love the staff. They know me and my friends well. (The Bluenosers they call us)The food is very tasty. I can't say enough good things about this place.
Kyle was a great server..helpful and fun. Everyone was friendly and we had a great meal.
Always a wonderful experience!
Amazing restaurant ! The atmosphere is really nice and the staff kind and professional ! The food is good and ethical !! Best restaurant I had in Halifax !
Our meal was late leaving the kitchen, according to management, so our party was provided with a free dessert. for each of us. This was an unexpected bonus to an already excellent dining experience. Well prepared and delicious food in an interesting restaurant atmosphere.
Service was phenomenal!! This was our first time and we will back again and again. We go to Halifax each fall for a conference and we have a favourite restaurant and we usually try one new one. This will now be named one of our favourites! Atmosphere was great and the food was fabulous! My husband said he has the BEST burger he has ever eaten and the chocolate tofu pie was to die for!! We will be back for certain and we are spreading the word:)
We had a wonderful meal and and incredible server. Kyle was very friendly, personable and knowledgeable about what was available at the restaurant!
Ben, our waiter, was excellent. Couldn't ask for anyone better. Food was amazing. Delicious - I believe right from the start of the ingredients. Fresh. Wonderful presentation and selection of food. Wonderful from the salads and apps - main course - and desert! For all of us!!!:)
Great service. Great roasties.
Great atmosphere, location, service. Outstanding seafood chowder, salad and grilled halibut. Risotto accompanying the halibut a bit bland. Great drink choices.
Great service and very accomodating to people with food allergies/intolerances.
Fantastic service - we were a large group (12) and everything was fantastic. The food was amazing. Thanks for making my parents' 50th anniversary a great night!!
The reservation was under the name ‘Grace’
Really lovely evening all around, great food and fabulous service, can't recommend this place highly enough!
We received wonderful service and the food was amazing! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!
Overall, our experience was good. Location is well suited to a small group, and the service was prompt and friendly. On a less positive note, the dessert was still quite cold when it was served, and as a result, it crumbled and was difficult to eat.
Great service, excellent location and superb food!
Loved the service, friendliness, cleanliness, location, and food & drink, of course!
Food is excellent. Service was friendly and helpful, as always. I love, love, love the roastie potatoes and the lentil burger.
Had lamb burger. Was delicious. The potato wedges were favourless, looked burnt
We ate at the Halifax location. Everyone ordered something different and everyone loved their food. But the best part of our visit was our server. I believe his name was Kyle. He was so personable, polite, efficient. We just loved him. He totally made the experience beyond enjoyable! I hope he’S our server when we go back. That being said, I sometimes overheard other servers talking to other tables and they sounded just as friendly, outgoing etc.. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone!
A very laid back spot with excellent food and service
