“Great visit”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

We dropped in and had 4 different dishes seafood chowder, monkey pita, haddock with a flair , and blueberry pie. They were really good. The waiter person was quite awesome. Asher is very energetic, helpful and a pleasure to have as a server. Atleast 8 stars.

“Good place for dinner”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Stopped in here recently for work with a co-worker. Nice location; lots of seating .. I wasn't sure what to expect based on the inside setting but it was a very good dinner.
Service was efficient and professional. Nice menu; lots of options and the waiter was great at explaining all the local options.
We both just ordered dinner; I had the Haddock with was quite good. My co-worker had the chowder which was more like mussels in a broth, but he said it was also very good.
The dinner was better than I expected; total bill for 2 dinners and 1 drink each after tip/tax was $58.
Overall very nice, and I would consider coming again if I was ever in town.

“Vegetarian creativity”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

The Wooden Monkey's a bit pricey for a quick lunch, which is a shame because the Halifax location is ideal. However, the menu offers great choices and the food's terrific.

“Dartmouth location”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

new location in the Dartmouth Ferry terminal, fantastic view of the harbour and Halifax, great service and very interesting menu..... I had the meatless taco in a lettuce leaf wrap instead of a taco shell, I was very pleased and would order it again but would like to experience more of their many options.
