This place is amazing and I am always amazed it is not more busy. The design is very nice, elegant but hip. The cocktail list great, the service exceptional. We have never had a visit when the chef did not come out to ask himself how the food was or did not send a complimentary item to our table. They go above and beyond. The food is superb, just great presentation, superb flavor. Do yourself a favor and visit. You wont regret.

My husband and I went to Halo for our Valentines day dinner. The service was excellent. My husband had the rib steak and I had shrimp tacos. Both were very tasty. When we were finished, our server, Prince, brought us a heart shaped candle and a boxed piece of cake to take home. We also got a rose. An excellent evening!!

Early Valentines. Food was fantastic. Service was even better than the food. Samantha was attentive, made excellent recommendations after just a few questions, was very knowledgeable about food and drink choices, and finished the evening off in style. Thank you kitchen and thank you Samantha!

Good food. Great service. The special lamb soup for the evening was excellent.. enough spice but not overwhelming spicy with a ground lamb. The deconstructed Tiramisu was light and not too sweet.

The table had dirty glasses and Kleenex on it upon arrival. The food took about 45 minutes after we ordered and two of our party had to wait an extra 15 mins for their steaks. The burgers were not good and the fries had sat under heat lamp for far too long. My order was incorrect but I ate it due to not wanting to wait. The waitress knew it was incorrect but did not offer to take off or discount the bill. The waitress was unable to split the bill for 10 people into three so we had to figure it out for her. They were ill prepared for our small party although we had made reservations. Have been there a few times, but will likely not return

Service was good, a bit slow at one moment but we didn't mind too much as that can happen anywhere. Food unfortunately was not that good, it was alright but not at all what we were expecting for the price range and for the type of ambiance (which was lovely). We were especially looking forward to dessert which was the biggest let down after a mediocre meal (four people and we all would not order any of our food again). The bombe was made too thick for a chocolate bombe, and the other dessert we had just tasted of overwhelming sweetness, nothing else. We hope to have a better experience in the future if we choose to ever return, although if we do it definitely will not be for another special occasion.

The decor, service and menu were all outstanding. My husband had a strip-loin and said it was one of the best steaks he has ever had. I had shrimp tacos and they were fantastic. The wine selection was good and the server was warm and friendly, it was a pleasure to have her look after us.

Food is delicious and the service is great. Went fir a birthday dinner and after our entrees was surprised with a birthday dessert without ordering one. Much more to my surprise was the we were charged for what seemed a complimentary dessert. Inly $10 but did not appreciate the charge after the bill was already over $150.

Excellent service and food. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Very accommodating with minor substitutions. Would be nice if the parking was complimentary since this restaurant certainly isn’t cheap. Parking cost $14 on top of the cost of the meal.

Took our 8 month old and met up with friends at Halo. Had wonderful service getting our daughter set up with a high chair. Good was fast and very good. One friend didn't completely enjoy a dish but the rest (mushroom panini, steak, & soup) were delicious. They validate parking for up to 3 hours so go through the gate to get in. And you have to take the elevator up one floor & go through the lobby to get to it.

Halo is one of our favourite restaurants to go to for date night! The service is unmatchable as well as the ambiance and food. They have very private booths that are perfect for date night or celebrations.

we had a new waitress that evening, you could tell she was confused and nervous but she told us this so we appreciated her honesty. she was an overall really sweet girl. Our meals were not to par at all for what they were worth. My husband ordered the noodle bowl which he totally hated...it was way too pasty, way too spicy and horrible actually. I had the salmon over rice and the salmon was way over cooked...I couldn't eat it. we were very disappointed and we will not return. For such a beautiful restaurant the meal was terrible.

Food was superb!! I had the buffalo donair - amazing. My friend had 'one of the best steak sandwiches' - both substantial portions (I even took half home) and felt both were reasonably priced. Atmosphere has the 'cool' trendy factor, an enjoyable time was had by all.

All 5 of us had the steak sandwich. And I must say the steak was perfect. The restaurant was already closed but we could eat in the lounge.
I am not the person who likes loud music when you want to have a coversation, so that was the only negative aspect on this lunch. The music was too LOUD for me, but it can also be my age.
Service was good.

I had the pleasure of dealing with the manager (Jeet) for all my needs for my special birthday that was set in one of their private rooms. Ambiance was cool/chic. The menu, although small, had many great options to select from. The service was impeccable. They even knew our names by the end of the night. You don't see that often. Props to the management team who trained them all very well. Dinner was served promptly. Presentation of all my guests' food items was beautiful. The food was so delicious. We all agreed that THIS is our go-to restaurant for fine-dining close to home (Leduc). Highly recommend!
