Respond to Review of The Wooden Monkey - Halifax
by Enchanted Couple
Review: We were visiting Nova Scotia and asked our B&B hostess to suggest a nice vegetarian restaurant in Halifax. Without hesitation, she recommended The Wooden Monkey. We should mention that my wife is strictly vegan while I still have a broader diet. What impressed me with The Wooden Monkey is that the dishes we enjoyed were genuinely tasty in their own right - no need to hesitate because they were vegetarian. In particular, the nachos appetizer was a delight and the scallops with pasta was delicious. But what put The Wooden Monkey over the top was their Vegan Tofu Pie. Having savoured that dish, I'll never yearn for traditional cheesecake again. Their attitude is so helpful and friendly and the service was fine - although they seemed a bit stretched once the place filled up. The fact that they are not set up to take reservations was a little unsettling, especially since we needed to make a one-hour drive into Halifax. But we arrived just before the busy time and were seated at a pleasant window table. Without hesitation, we would repeat.
