Highly recommend eating here. The food was exceptionally fresh and delicious. They take care of allergies and organic products. Staff was professional and attentive. Make a reservation.

A bunch of us went out for dinner here the other night. Good beef dish, decent burger, good bruschetta. The sizes were reasonable. One person had salmon which was nice as well. The price for the evening was quite reasonable also.

The food was good but the waiter tried way too hard (flipping glasses, trying to be funny, strange conversation). Can recommend though, if you like vegan. The restaurant looks nice and pricing is good.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so glad we took her advice. Our vegetarian meals were delicious. Our waiter was also outstanding. Can't wait to go back.

Our group of three was attracted by the high ratings of the Wooden Monkey so we went for a Saturday late lunch at 2pm. The place was not crowded though the streets were jammed with people and no parking spots for blocks. This should have...More
