Diner Reviews
  • "We had lunch here a couple of days ago. I had the Grouper sandwich- YUM! It's a difficult to find fish and one of my favourites. At Harbourstone they serve it in grilled pita with a Greek twist- diced tomato, cucumber, feta and a lemon oregano dressing. My friend ordered the Cauliflower Steak which may sound a bit different. It too was fantastic. A thick slice from a whole cauliflower that is seasoned and grilled and served over creamy curried chickpeas, with basmati rice. I could have devoured just a bowl of the curried chickpeas, they were so good! The service was attentive although more info on the menu items would have been helpful. Everything came out of the kitchen fast which is appreciated when you only have an hour for lunch."

  • "Always a little concerned about in house restaurants in major brand hotels but the food here was terrific! And the service really helpful and friendly but not overbearing. Flatbreads, salads with scallops and Caesars salad all excellent. Highly recommend. "

  • "My husband's dinner (Halibut) was dry and overcooked. We were given a package as a wedding gift for a night's stay including the 3 course meal each. We were very disappointed in the meal itself. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "This is a great open space with lots of booths and different seating niches including high top tables. I had the 'Dayboat' feature which was a whole sea bass, perfectly cooked and simply seasoned with salt and pepper and a grilled lemon. My companion had the halibut tacos to start- he wished he'd ordered a double portion! Then he had the filet of beef with chimichurri. The sauce really brightened a very tender but slightly underseasoned steak. Friendly and attentive service. I'd definitiely go back."

  • "I had a dinner with a friend of mine food was great restaurant and hotel seems not bussy at all.Great combination of food even though the menu was small."

  • "I am not strictly vegan or vegetarian but I do eat a number of meatless meals a week. At home, I make a mean chickpea burger so when I read the menu and saw the lentil burger, I was curious. I am often a bit timid to order such foods in restaurants, as the meatless options are often bland. This "burger" was incredible! The spicy tahini really kicked it up a notch and the "burger" itself was thick and satisfying. I would order this meal again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a meatless option."

  • "Limited menu selection typical of lower volume captive hotel restaurants. Full clams shells in the chowder was hard to consume.with etiquette. Open concept makes for noisy dining. Staff was courteous and responsive. Gluten free option was appreciated."

  • "We all arrived a couple of minutes after our reservation and the hostess knew who we were right away. She showed us to our set table and then our server came directly over to greet us and continued to be very attentive providing us with exceptional service. We were all wowed by the food selections at the buffet brunch and Joyce at the omelet bar took very good care of us! We enjoyed every moment and mouthful and will definitely be back. I have already spread the word how we were all wowed and cannot wait to return!"

  • "I have never been there before, but would definitely return. The food was great, the people extremely helpful and friendly. The place was clean, and very quiet (except when our group got a little loud!). I saw all types of people there - couples, groups of friends, mother and baby - it was just a great overall experience."

  • "We took the in-laws to dinner during their recent visit. The Harbourstone was excellent!! The food was great and they were quick to accommodate the allergies at the table. The service was fantastic and the prices were good. We will go back. Good spot for dinner prior to a visit to the casino too."

  • "We were very pleasantly surprised by the level of food quality. Two outstanding appetizers, dry ribs and the nachos, were a real surprise. I had he steak frites and, with the exception of being a little heavy on the salt, this was excellent. My daughter and son in law really enjoyed the back ribs and my other daughter and her husband had equally delightful chowder. Our experience was completed by the service and attention provided by our server and the maitre d'. We will be back"

  • "We made reservations on-line, prior to seeing the restaurant. When we walked by the restaurant the night before our planned lunch, we were not sure if we would like the location in a busy hotel. However, once seated we felt as if we were separate from the busy hotel. The food and service were great!"

  • "This restaurant was recommended by a friend who knows I tend to frequent a very select number of restaurants and decided to follow his advice. The overall experience was great and memorable. The servers were top notch and my impression was that they really enjoyed working at this restaurant and I could not have expected better service. All four of us loved the food as well and I will return many times I hope."

  • "I had another great experience at the harbourstone restaurant at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront. The food was delicious - fresh and bountiful. Each item was presented so nicely as well. The desserts were really good, especially the brownie! Our server, Sattina was very pleasant and was knowledgeable about the menu. She was able to provide us with great suggestions and options."

  • "I had lunch with a business colleague at harbourstone and the food was excellent. So reasonably priced-not what one expects from a hotel restaurant. The Seafood Tower is the steal of the year at $16 with shrimp, scallops, fresh oysters, lobster and whatever the fish of the day is. Awesome deal. I had the Cioppino which was perfectly cooked. It was so simple with seafood 'just' cooked and a delicious broth- a high recommend. My colleague had the Lobster roll which was stuffed with large chunks of fresh lobster. Needless to say we were stuffed! Unfortunately no room for dessert."
    Dined on 8/19/2013
  • "I often eat at the Harbourstone and was happy to see a new menu. I was happy to see some new menu items but even happier to see that the Chef kept the more popular ones like the fish 'n' chips and the lobster roll. I tried the lamb burger with the garden salad. The burger was smoothered with dragon's breath blue. Very sharp and tasty. I cannot comment on the roll / bun as I ordered my meal without that. My friends had the fish'n'chips and the pasta and both said they were fantastic."

  • "THE BEST haddock ever. Had Fish & Chips but subbed the chips with a salad. Tempura battered... just perfectly cooked. Had lots of awesome items to choose from but just felt like fish&salad. Going back to try some of the other items like those Lamb Sliders. Fast service. Very cool atmosphere. Thought I was in mainstream New York without the high prices!!! How do you guys afford to stay open with prices so good?"

  • "Stopped in for lunch on my way back to the office as the room seemed to be buzzing. Great menu selection and after changing my mind twice went with the Seafood Chowder and a Kale Salad. It was a FANTASTIC choice! Chowder was rich with big chunks of meat and the salad combined with a fish cake was fabulous. Happy to have this new addition to my local area."

  • "This is a busy lunch spot. The place was packed on Friday. We had pork sliders and the special which was a kind of surf and turf of steelhead trout with lamb chops. Everything was excellent. Generous portions and attentive service. The bartender created a special mocktail for us too with fresh juice- summer in a glass!"

  • "I recently had my first visit to harbourstone restaurant and it did not disappoint! It was very busy but the staff were attentive and we didn't have a long wait for our lunch to be served. I had the lobster roll which was loaded with delicious lobster while my friend had the chicken digits. Very clever on the presentation! We will definitely be back."

  • "We had the Faroe Island Salmon that was the 'dayboat' special. WOW! I have never had salmon that good. It was seared till the skin was crisp and finished with lemon zest, salt and pepper. Super simple so the quality of the fish shone through. It absolutely melted in your mouth. I am from the west coast of Canada and have had my share of salmon but this was the best I think I've ever eaten. The cold water of the Faroe Islands (off the coast of Denmark I think) must make for such a rich unctious fish and the simple preparation was perfect."

  • "The food is normally great, my burger was burnt unfortunately. As well, the super high chairs are not conducive to short people and are difficult to push in and out - not sure if it's the table combined with the chairs but I will ask not to be seated there again. Otherwise, the servers were fantastic and the ambiance is cool."

I would go back for a more casual fare however. The decor is lovely!"
