Ate here in 2012 with 2 vegan diners. Great selection of choices for them on the menu. Service was impeccable; lovely atmosphere. Great staff even though it was pricey it was a good dining experience. Construction nowadays might be a big deterrent which is unfortunate for such a lovely spot. Great moniker, too!

I visited the wooden monkey a few weeks ago because I had won a get gifted coupon that offered me a free burger of my choice. The servers were so nice and knowledgable, and they didn't treat me any different because I was dining alone with a coupon. The restaurant was stunning on the inside, I had a seat in... More

Picked this place because I had read that they had gluten free and vegan options. Was also located right behind our hotel. Score! Excellent service. Our server was very attentive to my daughters dietary needs, she has multiple food allergies. Plan on going back with my daughter next time I'm in town.

We went for a nice dinner at The Wooden Monkey while visiting Halifax last June. The food, which is all local, was very good. The service was excellent! Had a view of the surroundings. Had fish a good local beer, can’t be beat! Not our first time and defiantly not our last. The Wooden Monkey is hidden treasure spread the... More

Went on a Sunday night so the place was practically empty. I had the halibut with a flair and I was not disappointed. The menu is diverse can't wait to go again. Service was good, parking is a problem especially with construction next door.

After having eaten at this restaurant in Dartmouth, I was eager to take family to this one in Halifax. Service was slow, but understandably a busy Saturday night. Pork chops and salad were not tasty. Overall food quality was not what had been anticipated despite having many vegan options.

This restaurant focuses on providing organic and locally sourced foods. The atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxed and the staff very friendly and attentive. I have eaten here several times and I find the food consistently good and delicious. We ate there last night with friends. I had the blackened haddock while my husband had the scallop pasta and we...

Restaurant was very accommodating with our toddler. We had the scallop pasta ($26) and meat pizza ($20). I think the scallop pasta was really tasty, scallops were perfectly prepared. Pizza was a little too thin and overdone, but toppings were flavorful.
