Although the menu cost is slightly above average, I am always impressed with the eats Can't wait to go back (in warm weather) and enjoy the patio at their new location.

Busy place for lunch on a Thursday but service was excellent and attentive. One of the tastiest lentil burger i've had in a long time - liked the thin pita 'bun' and the sauce. Also be sure to try the rhubarb soda spritzer !

Well, the title pretty much says it all.

I'd visited the Halifax location, but not for a while, and when the Dartmouth location opened, it was a "must try".

Excellent, excellent, food and service.

Four of us celebrated a birthday for a friend, ordering a wide choice of offerings and we were all very happy with our meals..and you must try the deserts!

A second visit was equally satisfying.

Not too sure what the interior design theme is all about, wood, err, I guess, but it is open and airy and pleasant.

Can't wait for warm weather to visit the patio - it will be stunning.

And you gotta love the corporate philosophy - read the " About Us" page on the website.

All in all - a wonderful restaurant.

This is by far one of the best restaurants in the city. I have enjoyed the Halifax location since it first opened and was thrilled with the new location. The food, service and atmosphere are wonderful. I highly recommend especially for anyone with celiac or for vegans

The new Dartmouth location of The Wooden Monkey lives up to, and perhaps surpasses, my wonderful experiences over the years at the Halifax location. The menu is the same and the chefs are coming along nicely in being able to keep up to the high standards set across the harbour. A couple minor details (almonds were missing from the scallop almond salad) were brought to the waiter's attention and he was appreciative of the feedback and made amends with a discount, although it was not expected or necessary. The new location is absolutely beautiful with many tables having a view of the water and the Halifax skyline. I will be back again and again...
