The Press Gang
ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONEIght great friends got together to celebrate a 37th wedding anniversary and walked away totally impressed and completely satisfied with the evening. All eight members of our party loved the meal they had chosen. OF the eight persons, six different entrees were chosen: Halibut, Lamb, Salmon and the Strip Loin. Each entree was cooked to perfection. If there was a negative note it was that our table was next to the band and it tended to be somewhat difficult to 'chat' with the noise level of the band but we enjoyed having the music.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you for a wonderful evening.This was the third time we celebrated our anniversary at the Press Gang and again it was nothing short of spectacular. We both loved the new menu. The service has never changed... Fantastic. We really enjoyed the band, it's perfect for the room. Met the owner this time, great chap. We will definitely return soon.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMRECOMMENDED!!I booked a table for myself and my Dartmouth Co-worker and VP from Toronto---EVERYONE was impressed! The service was exceptional, and meals/drinks/desserts surpassed their expectations. (not mine as I knew the terrific quality)
I like to ask the server for recommendations and I was happy that I did.....all his recommendations were perfect!!
When I booked the reservation via Open Table, I asked for a table towards the back and that is exactly what we got--thanks!!!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMnice place, first good steaknice place, first good steak I've had in a long time6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food.

Food was to die for, try the Beef Tartar. The service was wondering - not overbearing while still attentive. He a special table set aside for us which was a nice surprise. Highly recommend.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SettingThe Press Gang Restaurant provided a great evening setting along with very easy listening music. It was a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. We ordered the beef and it was very tasty - overall good experience - thank you :0)6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the 3rd or 4th timeThis was the 3rd or 4th time I've eaten at The Press Gang and I have never been disappointed. This time I ordered the baked Oysters to start, and they were beyond fabulous. I would go back just for those and a glass of wine.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionWe had an excellent table for our 25th wedding anniversary. Oysters and scallops were delicious. The only down fall, the sea trout was rather plain and tastless.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply amazing.My partner and I travel across the world frequently, and always look for healthy options in fine dining. We are both huge fans of simple in their nature, but refined seafood, and to be honest, we are quite picky with our diets and choices. The Press Gang Restaurant made a *huge* impression on both of us. Not only dishes to die for (fresh, well chosen and simply delicious), but the decor of the place, the friendly service and the atmosphere in general... Eleven out of ten; at least. Compliments to the chef; the lobster and halibut are to die for! First time in my life really enjoyed oysters as well... Very well chosen! Compliments to the waiters - amazing entertainers, great service. 1800s decor - impressing! We will be back, definitely!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable DinnerDelicious and well presented food. Service could have been a bit more congenial and attentive. We enjoyed our evening and would recommend this restaurant to others.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Dining ExperienceThe evening we visited The Press Gang for a special occasion was delightful by all accounts. Loved our table by the window and the relaxed atmosphere in general. We shared The Drill, which opened our eyes, our senses, and taste buds to at least one food item we might never have tried - the ostrich. It was really tasty. The lobster was the tastiest, most mouth-watering lobster we have ever tasted, and each dessert was as delicious as the next!
It is an expensive night out for many, but well worth saving up for a special treat and a truly excellent, fun, dining experience.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing !!!!Stumbled across this place while looking for another restaurant. So glad we did, the food was amazing and the service was brilliant. Amazing food at a price that doesn't have to be saved for special occasions.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantI was in Halifax for a week and have to say that even if you spend little time in the city, knowing this restaurant should be mandatory.
Food is outstanding, full of delicate flavours, impressive presentation and quality, all cooked to perfection!!
In many places you expecting the service and general ambiance to be a bit "snooty" and "serious", but we were really pleasantly surprised by the friendly but extremely professional service from all the staff.
The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming making it an extremely enjoyable experience overall.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMe and my boyfriend went hereMe and my boyfriend went here for our anniversary dinner and we had an amazing time.

Food and service was excelllent as always. You must check this room out on the weekend.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our evening. TheWe enjoyed our evening. The food was delicious. Lovely room. When we finished eating we moved to the bar to enjoy the funk/jazz band. Great vibe, great to see this offering in Halifax.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDril Drill DrillGroup of 3, my wife and my son. My son and I ordered the four course drill and we were amazed. Each course consisted of a trio of items on a single plate. Essentially you are sampling the best selections of each course on the menu. At $150 for two it isn't cheap, but it is reasonable. As expected beverages are extra. James Bond would be pleased with the Press Gang Vesper. Press Gang and Gio, just around the corner, are the two best restaurants in Halifax, in my opinion. Live Jazz trio added to the mood of the cellar.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
