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.
We had a lovely time. Our server was new and she was fantastic! We had quite a few questions and she answered them quickly!
Our friends had highly recommended your restaurant and we were certainly very pleased with everything and impressed with food quality and that you serve organic and healthy food!!
Menu was sold out of many items
Excellent food! Went for lunch one day and it was so good we went again the following day!
Had a lovely evening, and the server was awesome!
What is the point of making a reservation when you have to wait for your table 20 minutes. Food is overpriced for what it is.
Great service, very quick. Found it was a little expensive (mostly in regards to the kids meal which was around $8 for a bowl of buttered noodles with no drink or anything included)
great as usual!
Fresh and yummy
Our server was very helpful, especially when helping us find food choices that are safe for celiac. We were very happy to learn that almost everything on their menu was gluten free (or could be made gluten free) with very little chance for cross contamination.
Loved the service, did feel rushed and we could take our time to enjoy our food. The food was great!
We have been going to the Wooden Monkey since it first opened many years ago and we have never been disappointed. The food is AMAZING and the service is top notch. Def our favorite restaurant.
