First time back
First time we had been back since the Sheraton was in residence and we did not realize it was more of a cafe and bar and chose to go there for a special event
It is casual dining and not for a special event dinner but the service was excellent and the food was very good.
I would go back for a more casual fare however.
The decor is lovely!

My recent visit to harbourstone was fantastic. The food was exceptional with great appetizers for sharing. The hummus is made on property and is by far the best in the city! Staff are very knowledgeable about the local products and are very friendly! A great new hot spot in Halifax!!

The food is normally great,
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.

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.

Great new restaurant!
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.

Came in for lunch and the only challenge was trying to pick only one item off a GREAT menu - so nice to have this new option near work

This is a busy lunch spot.
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!

Chowder Hounds Delight
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.

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?

New Lunch Menu
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.

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.

I had another great experience
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 will return many times
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.

We made reservations on-line,
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!

modern ambiance and good food
Generally the food was good and the ambiance and service were excellent. Had the med. dip which we found was on the bland side, but otherwise all was good.
