It was loud even though it was 2:00! Beet salad wasn’t much for $13.50. Fortunately management deducted $5 after voicing concern Addison was a charming wonderful waiter More wine selections would be appreciated

I've always loved and supported The Wooden Monkey, despite the fact that it's so darn noisy! This time though, we were three: my nachos didn't quite measure up to many previous experiences. I think perhaps the amount of cheese was a little thin. My brother had the fish and thought the batter didn't have much flavour and the roasties were too soft on the inside. My sister-in-law, on the other hand, loved her pizza!

Unfortunately we were unhappy with our meal at wooden monkey. The halibut was extremely bland and the vegetables were tasteless. We had the pizza and it was similar to one you would purchase from a grocery store freezer. The meals just seemed like they were "pre-made" and tossed in the microwave to heat up. Sorry for the negative review but we were very disappointed

As always the food and service were fantastic. This is the 2nd time we have had an office event upstairs at the Wooden Monkey in Halifax and it's perfect. Kyle and the rest of the serving staff were awesome, so friendly and attentive. Thanks again for the great night!

I made a reservation and felt very welcomed by all the wait staff; almost like we were special. The Monkey Pita's were delicious. I took clients to join me and I definitely would do so again.

Drink service was really slow. We had to ask to get our first beers. Fish was great but the roasties were cold for all 4 of us that had them. It was very hard to order a second drink. Overall, the Dartmouth location is WAY better.

This review is intended more as a warning for persons visiting the city and seeking to dine at an establishment that caters to a various dietary restrictions. The experience at The Wooden Monkey was nothing short of horrible- the service was EXTREMELY slow that a starter appeared almost 30 minutes after our order was placed and the food lacked flavour. Salt & spices can do magic people. Our waiter tried to wow us by imitating a scene from the movie Cocktail but we were not impressed. The only thing that arrived promptly was the bill!

Our server was so warm and welcoming; it was truly a pleasure to be in The Wooden Monkey. My friend and I were nervous about eating “farm to table” however, the food is incredibly delicious and the drinks are full of flavour without being boozy. I highly recommend The Wooden Monkey and I will definitely return when back in Halifax.
