They lived up to their name with locally produced items and creative presentations. The kitchen had been slammed so the waitress came around with gratis plates of veggies and hummus that was very good. I had the pound of mussels and they were very good. For a main course I had haddock with a flair and the flavors all went together well. It was very busy at 5:30 on a Thursday and that is not surprising.

I am not a vegetarian, but enjoy the imaginative menu anyway. The food is tasty, not too salty, as some vegetarian restaurants are, and the staff are funky.

Our meal at the wooden monkey was good, but very expensive. I understand it is an organic restaurant, so I expected prices to be higher, but I ate a side salad for $7.00 that was in a soup cup. I think there are better restaurants in Halifax with great food and a little more for the money!

I was worried that when the wooden monkey moved locations it would lose its charm and personality, quite the opposite, it flourished. The food is amazing, and the decor is so calming and conversation provoking. Cannot think of a better place for service.

Ingredients organic and dietary restrictions, gluten free, vegan, etc. are all addressed on the menu. Food was good. Blueberry pie was good and was made with mixture of sugar and maple syrup. Definitely worth eating there, but get a reservation!
