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
The food was outstanding and the staff couldn't have been any nicer or more helpful.
They were not prepared to accommodate the crowd in the restaurant. It took more than 1hour to bring the main courses, leaving 30minutes b/w when the kids meals were served and the adults meals. I had requested a dessert with a birthday candle and it was confirmed back to me at 3 occasions by 3 different servers (lack of coordination was evident).
The food (appetizers, two fish dishes, and dessert) was cooked and presented extremely well, and tasted delicious. I loved the variety of local vegetables. I appreciate and support the concept: a "restaurant with a conscience".....serving local, sustainable, and organic. I'd like to see more proteins offered on the "mains" menu (i.e. chicken and beef dishes). It was extremely, and uncomfortably, warm upstairs last evening. More AC please! The plywood tables upstairs need a little dressing up. Overall....a great restaurant that I recommend.
Air conditioner not working, but service was excellent
Great service and fabulous food!
Love eating GMO free food and locally grown is a bonus.
Wonderful food - vegan rice bowl was amazing! All guests , vegan and not, equally happy with the food and service.
Food was delicious. Place is very child friendly as well
I took the family for dinner, second time I have eaten there and the food is very good. The staff are excellent and very friendly. They are very helpful and social. I will eat there again.
I was delighted with the setting for our small party! The upstairs was perfect as we had 2 young children who were able to be themselves and not have to worry about extra noise. One of the workers captured their attention by dropping by the table with the stuffed monkey. Loved this and how he went out of his way! The decorations were simple as I requested, the food delicious and our wait staff very courteous! It was a very relaxed atmosphere and I woukd highly recommend the Wooden Monkey.
Amazing service. Best food we have eaten in years.
The service and food were excellent! We were celebrating my grandson's graduation from Dal and your added to our wonderful time . From your waiter staff , to super 😋 delicious food , cleanliness, all added to the ambience and the opportunity to enjoy a memorable occasion. Thank you
Our server was excellent. Many dietary concerns and preferences and she provided fantastic recommendations.
Great food and service as always!
Everyone enjoyed their meals, the atmosphere and the service. We certainly will be back. Your food is excellent. Thank you.
The servers and bartenders were awesome! They were very friendly and educated - providing lots of great recommendations. The restaurant itself was very accommodating to serving a large group. Some of the food items took a bit long to come out, but I realize that can be a challenge of feeding so many people at once. Some of the "mains" were a bit overpriced in my opinion, but overall, we were very pleased with the menu selections. The pulled pork nachos and salad dressing were particularly special! Of course, the white wine sangria was a total hit!!! Loved seeing all the local meats on the menu as well. The playlist was great and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We will definitely be back!
Excellent service, delicious food, great atmosphere! Will go back! We went up have lunch after our daughters university graduation, it is her favorite restaurant. She is celiac and there are many choices available for her. She loves the tofu chocolate pie! Thanks for a fun lunch!
The service was fantastic and I thought it was great I could book my reservation online.
We've been coming to the WM since it opened on Argyle Street many years ago and we've never been disappointed. We love what the WM stands for, it is and has always been our favorite restaurant - hands down. We routinely recommend it to friends, family and tourists.
