Great food with several gluten free and vegan options.
Disappointed several menu items not available
The food was incredible, as always, and the service was impeccable.
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
Friendly and helpful service. Nice atmosphere. Food nothing special.
the lamb burger with goat's cheese was really good!
Excellent service and delicious food!
Amazing food and service! I would totally recommend this great restaurant!
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!
Attentive waitstaff, good variety of foods and great approach in general to business.
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.
We had a great time and our meals were delicious.
Great visit with my wife and two young children. Service and food were both fantastic.
Very nice. We’ll be back.
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.
We all enjoyed our meals and our server was entertaining. Would definitely dine in again next time we’re in town.
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!
Great food service was excellent
Great food and service for a very affordable price!
As always my experience at The Wooden Monkey was great!
Our server was very friendly.
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.
