The Wooden Monkey is a delightful experience. We enjoyed the courteous service and pleasant atmosphere but the best part was the food. Our two entrees featured fresh ingredients that were prepared to perfection. Our only regret is that this was the end of our trip and we could spend only one night in Halifax. If he had been there for... More

The most delicious, organic foods, superb wines, charming setting and delightful staff! My husband was on a business trip and he brought me with him for a Valentine's Day dinner at The Wooden Monkey... That was two years ago. This restaurant has been in the back of my mind since! I can't wait for our next trip to Halifax!

Great meal, great service. My husband is celiac and it is difficult to find restaurants that take the extra time to ensure the meal is truly gluten free.

Had a lovely lunch of blackened fish fillet and a delightful side salad. Cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.

It's a nice place but a niche market going for the trendy organic good. I didn't choose the resturant and am a meat and potatoes kinda guy so take my review with reservations. If you like that type of food raise my opinion up but like everything trendy and downtown it's slightly overpriced

This is a place that should not be missed. Locations in Halifax & Dartmouth! Great service, food and atmosphere. Food is fresh and local which I love to support. Great selection of beers on tap. I would like to see them obtain still and sparkling water that aren't in bottles as they are such GREEN supporters.

I recently had the opportunity come back to The Wooden Monkey and once again had a great experience. I say experience because it is not just the food, but the staff that makes this a wonderful place to come to. Every time I venture into this establishment, I am going to continue to choose something different until I experience everything... More

We had our first meal in Nova Scotia here. We ate outside on the patio. I had the scallop and almond salad and it was delicious, the greens were fresh and the scallops outstanding.

On our first evening in Halifax we went to The Wooden Monkey because it was close to our hotel and a friend had mentioned it. We had to wait but had a seat at the wee bar and a glass of wine. The food looked wonderful and smelled great. It was worth the wait. The staff are attentive and full... More

I went here a little while ago it was ok.. And that's all both food wise and service. It was a really busy day maybe that has something to do about it. I will totally try this place again because of all the great reviews.
