Good service, great view and easy parking at Dartmouth site. Food very good overall.

Love the view over the harbour and the easy parking. Beats the downtown Halifax by a mile for the sake of an extra 10 minute drive and a loonie for the bridge. Food overall very very good but my wife found her veggie burger a little dry on one occasion.

This restaurant has ben recommended by a hotel. We arrived about 5:30 on a weekday evening and we promptly seated. Good but not so good after. The young lady server took our order for salad, beer, and dinner. The salad and beer arrived in good time, The entrees were simple--the appetizer scallops wrapped in bacon and a bowl of their...

I had a Groupon and decided to try Wooden Monkey. I am often skeptical that Restaurants on Groupon are not the best but Wooden Monkey was very good. We had waited at the bar for a while for a table that could accommodate 6 could be prepared. When we were finally seated the server brought over two complimentary servings of... More

Cozy, relaxed and romantic setup this venue is perfect for relaxed conversations, romantic dates or even small family gatherings. The prices are a bit over the city average so plan accordingly. I was pleasantly surprised by the wide and well considered choices of food provided in the menu.

Pizza ,chicken wrap,haddock were our choices. Everyone loved their meals. Exceptionally fresh ingredients with good size portions. A great place for our family as we have vegetarians and meat lovers. Service was great and workers were friendly and kind to the children.

I've eaten lunch here a few times both food and service has been great. Prices are also good considering the food is organic. Highly recommend for anyone seeking organic food.

Eating at this locally owned gem is a win win because they prepare only with locally sourced organic/ free range foods. Don't let the name " chocolate silk tofu pie" throw you off if you are not a " veggie". It is just a plate of awesomeness!!! Other faves are nachos , lentil and lamb burgers. Great spit to have...
