Absolutely loved this place. As a vegan with an omni partner, we were both impressed. We came 2 nights in a row. I had a seitan wrap of some sort one night and tonight a vegetable curry bowl with tofu (pictured) with machos with vegan cheese for the appetizer. Bf first night had a braised beef dish and tonight did a personal sized pizza. If we lived here in Halifax, we'd be regulars!
My sister and I ate here twice in June 2022. My sister has to avoid gluten, which made this restaurant a treasure. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable and the food was delicious! We had the ?fried? fish from the lighter fares menu. It was a huge portion of fish, perfectly cooked and very fresh. The potatoes were yummy and their take on coleslaw was very tasty. We also had the fish cakes which were also very enjoyable and very fresh tasting. It was so good we had nachos at their Dartmouth location another day. I just wish they had Wooden Monkey t-shirts.
I visited the Wooden Monkey while on vacation in Halifax. I liked the idea that the food options available were organic and sustainable. I had two Korean tacos and a French onion soup. The flavour of the tacos was outstanding and I thoroughly enjoyed every bite. The soup was equally delicious; it came with several large pieces of garlic toast sitting in the soup which made it a little difficult to get to the liquid but this was a minor inconvenience balanced out by how delicious the toast was. Because everything is organic or locally sourced, the menu is a bit pricey but don't let this deter you from visiting. I'll definitely pay this restaurant a visit again if I'm ever back in Halifax.
Just stopped in for happy hour on the patio ? beer was cold and the staff (especially our server from California!) was fantastically pleasant and attentive. Would be really nice if there were more mocktail options for those who don?t drink alcohol! Had the garlic fingers on a whim! Pretty delicious with our beers. Would totally come again!
I love the concept of this business. The locally sourced foods and ingredients with nothing deep fried is exactly what I want. The building and atmosphere are lovely for a gathering or date. You could make it casual or a little fancy depending on what you want. The downside was that nothing we had was AMAZING. Everyone was pretty happy with their food, but not the spectacular that would bring it to a 5 star. The vegan donair was by far the best thing at the table. In that regard if the Vegan option was the best than well done! Definitely options for everyone. Their home brewed iced tea was also lovely. Like most of Halifax entering the building and being sat involves a couple of steps. No wheelchair access. Light was dim but not impeding, and the general environment was a respectful hum, no shouting needed. Much appreciated.
Wasn't expecting much - given that it was not very busy, a few days after Christmas. We ordered fish cakes and a burger. Fish cakes were quite good - according to my dinner guest. Tasty, satisfying, cooked to perfection. The burger? Well, it was the best burger I ever had. Period. It was so good, i shared it with my guest - to confirm my thoughts. We both agreed - it was superb. I have not been to Halifax before - but if I ever go back - will do it again. The service was prompt, polite, courteous. I have zero complaints about this place. Well done.
Very recomendable place. Very good good. I forgot to took pictures of my food. I get a chorizo goat cheese pasta and my daughter get a veggie curry and I will say both were delicious. If you visit this place be sure that order the tofu chocolate pie for dessert, it is delicious and you will not believe is tofu. 100% I will come back.
The staff were so knowledgeable about food allergies and Celiac specifically. We felt safe eating there and the ambiance was lovely. Made for a great date night!
