Good service, great food and drink, the staff was very considerate of my nut allergy.
Very good and entertaining service
Always a positive experience. We love it there.
Our waiter, I think his name was Sully, was outstanding!
A thoroughly good evening.
We had a large group of 45 or 50 people that took over the upstairs. About half of the party was under 11 years old, a girls hockey team and siblings. The staff were amazing. The food was amazing. Our whole group was so impressed with how fast our orders were taken and how fast the food came out. Great work. It couldn't have been any better.
We had a lovely dinner here before going to see a show at Neptune. We appreciated the vegetarian options and the friendly service.
Great food and great service! Even got 15% off on my next visit!
Great restaurant, great food and great service!!!
I had the beet salad and fishcakes. Both were very good though cakes could have more fish. Slaw served with fishcakes was very tasty. Waitress was very nice. Fast service but didn't feel rushed. Nice to see mostly organic foods and many vegetarian/vegan choices.
Scallop Pasta was delicious and service was great.
We had great service at the Wooden Monkey, the only complaint we had was we think the menu has changed. My friend ordered scallop pasta which only came with 3 scallops. The lamb burger was fairly standard, sweet potato fries used to be string fries, now mushy wedges. Pulled pork burger was also pretty standard. We used to love the Wooden Monkey but the food seems to have went downhill. Service still great though.
Our server was SO amazing. On the reciept it said batman, so whoever you are batman please keep up the good work and keeping the people of this city fed and laughing. Truly such a great night.
Great food, excellent service!
The staff was great with us and our 2 sons. Food and drinks were amazing, portions were great.
Really enjoyed latest visit. Ben, our server was great and when busy another server made sure we were well attended to. Food equally great (as always). Had the scallop appetizer and the cider slaw stood out for me. Cold and crisp and fresh. Warmed apple pie for dessert was really nicely flavoured, perfect texture as well. All good. Thanks!
Kyle was a great server and the food was great!
A great option for conscientious diners. Office lunch was a hit!
Our group of 10 had a great time! Because it was a Tuesday, we had the entire upstairs area to ourselves. Our server (I've forgotten his name, sorry!) was excellent - prompt and friendly. Food was wonderful, all at our table were happy with their choices.
Love eating at Wooden Monkey. Great food and quaint atmosphere. Somewhat loud though.
Wish there was a rating higher than 5 stars to select>>>
Everything was fantastic. The staff really went above and beyond, the food was fantastic and the upstairs space was perfect for our needs.
5 star experience all around...enjoyed every aspect of our dinner. Food was exceptional, atmosphere was warm and cozy...and our servers blew away everyone's expectations! Highly recommend.
I’m so sorry that I failed to note our server’s first name. She was terrific! The food was excellent, the prices were modest, and the food was top-notch. As a sensitive Celiac, I’m always nervous about eating out but our server quickly put me at ease and I was amazed at the choices. I actually had trouble deciding which is rare. The five-hour drive is the only barrier to a weekly date night at the Wooden Monkey.
