We always enjoy our experience at da Maurizio, however this time it fell a bit short: pre-dinner cocktail - glass had lipstick still on it and we gave up waiting for our waitress to come by and had to track other wait staff down to replace it; we received appetizers before wine; beet salad seemed to be pre-platted (beet bleeding into the goat cheese and goat cheese was hard). The entrees were EXCELLENT and all mishaps before those were forgotten! The hostess that evening was absolutely lovely. Good thing we were paying attention, as the bill was presented with four bottles of wine instead of four glasses - our waitress fixed it though after we brought it to her attention. We will be back!
Very welcoming, from the hostess taking our coats to every one we interacted with. Kelly, the server, was kind, personable and very fast. He made great recommendations and was very helpful. Would definitely go again.
Amazing food, impeccable service, and the owner Tanya, along with her staff always make you feel special and well cared for. Our favorite restaurant in Halifax!
The best way of describing the shortcomings is to say that when you spend $215 for two people (tax and tip included), it would be nice to get a water right away. We had to ask. Although it seems trite, it's an indication of attentive customer service. Much prefer Bicycle Thief.
Always fantastic. My go-to place to celebrate special occasions. Expensive, but the service and the quality of the food make it worth the money every time.
Overall Amazing evening great food
Excellent service and the server was able to accommodate vegan and gluten dietary restrictions.
There is a reason this restaurant consistent;y ranks as one of the best restaurants in Halifax. It is first class form the tie you walk in the door. Truly a delightful experience - ALWAYS!!!
Love going here. Never disappointed. New Years Eve was busy, which is the only reason the food was a bit slow. Every other time everything was outstanding
Exceptional! The service was excellent! Staff were very responsive to questions and requests. The food was simply excellent. If you love Gnocchi do not pass up the opportunity to order it here. The texture and flavor is superior. Everything we ordered was equally delicious. We would recommend and return without hesitation. Beware, excellence isn't cheap but it is worth it!
As always we had a great experience. Food is the best in the city. Great service. Server provided good recommendations on the menu.
An old favourite from when we lived in Halifax. After 3 years we were happy to learn they haven't faltered! It was even better than we remembered. I still have a hard time not ordering the veal scallopini. So good!
Excellent food with plenty of time between courses.
Team service doesn’t work and most tables
Are too close together.
Server attention to details was okay at best considering the rep of the restaurant .
Food was excellent and well presented .staff. We’d have liked to have seen more professional staff
We really enjoyed our meals from our appetizers to our main. The date appetizers was really delicious, our first time trying it but not our last. The lamb shank was very delicious, great meal.
Lamb was excellent. Fat on duck breast was poorly rendered so the meat was chewy.
Excellent as always; however, this visit was a bit loud and the absence of tablecloths detracted from an otherwise fine dining experience.
Fantastic meal and service! Although it is a high end restaurant it is also casual. Do yourself a favor and always get a pasta course it's devine!
Absolutely sensational calamari starter, followed by perfect mains which combined well with the ambience, our 15th anniversary and the lovely Harumi who did a lovely job all round! Can’t wait to come back soon!
Graham was an incredible server, made the night! Thanks man!!!
We had a special pre-Christmas dinner, and everything was amazing. The service was excellent, and the food outstanding. I had the delicious tuna tartar as my appetizer, shared the amazing Gorgonzola gnocchi with another guest, and had the Atlantic halibut with black rice for my main dish. It is tricky to cook halibut, for a couple minutes too long in the oven, it can get dry and heavy. My halibut was perfection. Moist and flaky. The other guests raved about their food. The calamari is the best in the city, and the veal with lobster sauce is always outstanding. This is my favorite restaurant in Halifax.
As always, our meal was delicious. Having fantastic owners and friendly staff, along with the chef, who has been there for many years, means that you know what you’re getting every time and they are always willing to accommodate. This is my favourite restaurant in the city for all of these reasons. The menu is fantastic and there are plenty of options. I will keep keep coming back. The warm radicchio salad is amazing for sharing. The lamb shank with the mushroom risotto just yummy. Hand made pasta always great.
Excellent service and as always the meal was outstanding.
I go to da Maurizio's whenever I am in Halifax and I have never been dissappointed. Delicious fine dining Italian food, very friendly and attentive servers, great wine list and lovely ambiance. What more could you want? I actually just drove from Charlottetown to daMaurizo's for the sole purpose of having dinner with a friend. Worth the trip? You bet.
Great food, Great service...Great night! Many birthdays being celebrated on this night, including our server Sean. He was excellent and very attentive. It made our birthday celebration that much better. Highly recommend!
Our waiter, Kelly, was excellent. He was very attentive and friendly. The food was amazing, my beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection, and my husband's halibut was excellent.
We had an awesome time and appreciated the helpful staff in assisting us with our menu decisions. The wine was the best I've had by far!
Awesome food and service. It has been our favorite restarant in Halifax for many years. They represent all that is good in the restarant business.
Best fine dining in Halifax and has been for decades. Although main course was delayed slightly we were keep apprised throughout. Great calamari and the mussels were cooked to perfection. Always one of our top choices for special occasions. Consistent service and excellent food.
A special occasion restaurant- top notch food and service - able to get a wine not listed on their menu - certainly went the distance!
The restaurant was excellent in every way. It provides the best food in Halifax.
Service and meal was great!!! I may have registered the noise level wrong...it was great...we could speak without shouting!!! The margarita was yummy but much too small!!!
If you are young, don’t bother. They are only polite to you if they think they’ll get a big tip so they only provide good service to people 60 and over.
Fine for us but felt uncomfortable walking closely behind seated couple to use the washroom. Many empty seats at our 5pm sitting so they didn't need to sit in front of a bathroom
Damarizio still the best fine dining in Halifax.
Great spot for a romantic date, birthday or anniversary. Amazing service.
-Food was mediocre at best .
- Service was limited
After waiting 5 minutes for sparking water to be refilled , I had to walk over to the ice bath , retrieve it and pour for my date and myself .. ( place was serving a total of 5-6 tables on a Monday night with 4-5 visible servers .. )
Seafood Brodon is one of our favourites at this restaurant but it had very little seafood - one scallop, one shrimp and multi mussels.
Drink prices have gone up as well. Normally go a several times a year but since have not been back since their renovations. We won’t be rushing back.
Overall- did not feel it was good value for what we received.
Just ok. Restaurant not busy but yet we felt rushed. Restaurant was chilly. Had the duck which arrived lukewarm & the pasta which was an enormous portion & too creamy. Overheard another diner say that the gnocchi was more creamy & cheesy than she expected. After we had ordered we realized that our menu did not contain the evening special sheet that other diners received. Attention to detail just not there. This restaurant used to feel more special. Not sure we will return anytime soon.
A nice place for special occasions, we very much appreciated the personal touch on our dessert plates for our 30th anniversary, we also liked the very comfortable seating and the service provided by the staff.
We also liked the web site for browsing through the menu before our booking.
Exceptional food and service as it always is, thank you to Tanya and the whole crew for always making our every visit something special.
