WE have never been disappointed in the food, service or atmosphere of this treasure in Halifax. Even with the current restrictions, everything was top notch. A must eat place whenever we visit Halifax!

We go to the Wooden Monkey mostly for family meals and we have family who eat plant based meals. The WM always offers lovely plant based meals including dessert. For the" flexitarian" the menu offers an array of delicious options. We've always enjoyed the relaxed eclectic atmosphere. The night we went for dinner the only disappointment was that one guests first menu choice for entree was not available.

I always enjoy the food and atmosphere at the Wooden Monkey. This time I was travelling with my family, even the kids enjoyed the experience. It is so nice to have healthy alternatives when dining out. Great overall experience each time I go!

Had a reservation made for 7pm, realized at about 6 we probably would not make the reservation so we called to try and change the time and got a voicemail. Left a message as they stated they would call back and no one ever did.

Fantastic dinner! We came for dinner because one person of the group is celiac, and every single one of us raved about our meals. We really liked the lighter fare options! Great work. Greats service as well.

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.
