This is a good pub with a good atmosphere and good quality food for a pub. You can't go wrong here for a night out chatting with friends.

We came over on ferry to Dartmouth, and having had a late breakfast, were not too hungry. but decided to try a lite lunch, as the restaurant looked lovely, and smelled wonderful - food smells wafted right into elevator. Had lovely seating, overlooking the harbour. I tried fish cakes - lovely, with perhaps a little too much mashed potatoes (which... More

We went there for a beer. Beer was good, delicious beer from brewery. The food look like nice too, but a bit expensive considering the amount you go in your plate. ( we travel on low budget ) The place is more than beautiful tho. The decor is amazing and rustic. You also get a nice view on the beautiful... More

A friend recommended this restaurant, and it did not disappoint. Food and service was amazing. All organic, local food. Great atmosphere. We were introduced to Okanagan Cider, and had to find some when we got home. I had the best and biggest bacon wrapped scallops here.

Well priced meals, healthy, organic and above all delicious. The staff on hand were friendly, helpful and very attentive (No one's ever poured me a glass of water like that before....). I'd advise the Chicken Pesto Sandwich to all! A great find in Halifax

I love coming to Halifax so I can eat at the wooden monkey! The food is fantastic - I always get the bacon wrapped scallops and my mouth waters! I love that they have great healthy options. The staff are friendly and knowledgable and the whole place had a really cool vibe and great unique decor.

We checked out Trip Advisor and found that this restaurant had gotten great reviews and thought that we would give it a try. We Floridians were enjoying the cool weather so we opted to eat on the outside patio even though all the smart Canadians were inside and warm. I ordered the Scallop & Sun Dried Tomato Pasta which was... More

Had dinner at the Wooden Monkey. The serve staff were super helpful. The menu items were all unique and sounded great. I had the special of the day, saving the other dishes on the menu for my next visit. I will definitely go back.

When this place opened back in the day - it was groundbreaking for the Halifax food scene, but its food has gone downhill, and there are so many other places in town serving local food, and doing a much better job of it. Not a lot of vegetarian options, mediocre food, fish past its prime. Will not be returning.

I royally screwed up my take-out order to the Wooden Monkey by calling the Dartmouth restaurant rather than the Halifax location that was within walking distance of my hotel, but it all worked out thanks to the helpful and friendly staff at both locations. The Halifax location was very busy (for good reason given the atmosphere, customer service, and food)... More
