This was just all around a great experience. Making a reservation online was easy, our table was ready for us when we arrived, even though we were 10 minutes early, and the food was great! I have Celiac and I have heard great things about this place, and I enjoyed a nice safe meal. Truly gluten free pizza can be hard to come by but the cooks here must be very knowledgeable about cross contamination.

Great spot for dinner. A nice change from pub food without being too fancy.

We had a great dinner at the wooden monkey. The lady who greeted us allowed us to choose a nice table window. I asked our server for suggestions on the drink menu and he took the time to explain the different beers on tap based on what I like to drink. Our food cake out quickly and was cooked exactly how my wife had requested. Will definitely be back.

A very ordinary experience by Halifax standards. My lentil burger was tasteless and the fries limp. At the end of the evening I felt rushed to leave. The waiter was over with the cash terminal just minutes after he gave us the bill. I had not indicated that I was ready to pay yet as we were chatting and drinking our coffee. I was quite rattled and annoyed by this. This has not been my experience anywhere else in this city. A shame.

the service was wonderful, and it was a busy evening before the theatre production at Neptune. we were greeted with warm smiles, the table was ready with our reservation, and they knew we were attending Cinderella, and did not delay us at all. Our meal was fun and delicious. Made for a perfect evening with my friend!

Matt is always very helpful with planning volume and varieties for our catered orders. He is very responsive, flexible and pleasant. Christine, who delivered our order, was super patient. I didn’t realize I needed to meet her downstairs, so she called and waited without complaint for me to come down. She also remained pleasant as we awaited admittance to our catering kitchen. She was simply delightful. Finally, the pizza was delicious...at least I think it was; there wasn’t a single slice left for me when the event concluded! Thanks for everything!

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

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!

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!
