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!
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.
Great atmosphere and superb staff. They were very attentive. Great music too!
Everything was great. Thanks so much for helping make our conference enjoyable.
Great service, great food, and a big high five from our 19 year old celiacs son for the gluten free poutine on his birthday! Our waiter and the kitchen had been informed of his sensitivity (and poutine request) in advance when we booked online, and for the first time since he was diagnosed a year ago (and in the middle of a busy ECMA weekend) we were able to enjoy a family meal out, knowing the kitchen and staff took his allergy seriously. And a wonderful meal it was!
Friendly, credible service.
The service is great, the food is tasty and good value, and they have a good selection of local craft beers. I recently had the vegetable curry and I've also had the gourmet pizza and lamb burger. All were excellent. Highly recommended!
Great place! Amazing food. Will definitely be returning.
Fantastic food, great atomosphere, and friendly service.
Great atmosphere . Waitress was great and food was flavoursome , but a little expensive
There were 6 of us in my group and half of us thought our food was amazing, half thought it was average. My main dish was a scallop pasta and it was amazing, yet the bruchetta I had for an app and the pie for dessert were both not very good. I wont likely be going back any time soon unfortunately.
Definitely one of my favourite restos in Halifax! Never disappoints. Thank you so much!!!
We attended the Wooden Monkey for a friend's birthday dinner! The service was great and the food was even better. The birthday girl thoroughly enjoyed herself and staff were very accommodating! Thanks for a great evening :)
It was my first time dining there, the food was delicious and fast,we had a larger table among two other large tables and the food was super fast! Our server was great, not only was she efficient and Knowledgale, but very Courteous. She waited pleasantly for the conversation to break before interrupting. (Every time. And our table had some talkers ;) It was above and beyond great service. We even had a nice chat about my food choice I loved the whole experience!
Always a place for us to come when we are visiting our children who attend Dalhousie University !
It was busy for New Year but the food was top notch and our waitress was very nice :)
Excellent food,atmosphere, and service, just perfect!
Great service ! I will be back again !
Had a wonderful dinner for a special family gathering. Food was delicious, service was fantastic, and who can beat the great location? Thank you to all the staff who made our evening seamless. We will return as soon as we are able. I see this as a great spot to add as a yearly family tradition for us.
Very enjoyable meal. Waiter was very entertaining, love how he pours water in the glasses !!!
We truly enjoyed our meal and experience at The Wooden Monkey!! So happy we chose to come here and will definitely be back! We were a party of 9 and everyone, all 9 of us had a great time and loved our meals!!
