We offer dinner reservations only (and we keep tables and bar seating open for walk ins each night also).
We had the most lovely experience at Edna on Sunday night! The server and kitchen accommodated my long and annoying list of dietary restrictions and prepared one of the best meals I’ve had in the city. Our server was always there to refresh our wine and water but never intrusive, a true professional.
It was so great to be back at this Halifax staple!
So happy to have Edna back.
It was the same wonderful experience that we were use to pre covid.
So great to be back at Edna after lockdown. New team continues to offer the brilliant meals and friendly, unfussy service that we’ve come to expect from Edna. Can’t wait to go back.
Could not have asked for a better experience on re-opening night. Although we waited a few extra minutes for our table, we understood that everyone was just extremely happy to be there and didn't want to leave.
Our server was incredibly bubbly and made our meal very enjoyable.
Lastly, the food was incredible. So much flavour, good portion sizes and lots of options for everyone.
Edna is an intimate but very comfortable room, where the food is top notch. Great local ingredients and attentive staff with just the right amount of direction with the menu.
Have been to Edna an various occasions. Usually the food is delicious. Not sure if you have a new chef or if they were not having a good night but the food was definitely up to your usual standards
We love coming to your restaurant. It's our favorite place in Halifax. Our only recommendation would be to change the menu more often. We find that we have to choose the same items ...or expand the menu so frequent diners have more choice.
Amazing spot! We will be back and will bring others.
We had a great evening at EDNA! The food, cocktails and service were all great. We even tried to return the next night but were unable to find a time that fit. Will definitely be back when we are back in Halifax.
Un peu à l’extérieur du centre-ville mais intéressant de découvrir une autre ambiance plus moderne des restos du vieux quartier.
Très bon et très bon service malgré quelques différences entre ce qui est écrit au menu et ce que nous avons dans l’assiette.
Amazing restaurant that happily accommodated 10 of us for a birthday dinner. Everyone loved their meals and cocktails. Highly recommended. We will be back.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. The steak & scallop dinners were very good as was the calamari starter. We will be back!
Great food, great atmosphere. Really happy they are taking reservations.
Already looking forward to the next visit! I recommend the scallops and the creme brule for sure!!
Awesome service. We had to be somewhere by 7 and our server was giving us time checks, was super involved and she made our night run smoothly. Food was UNREAL and I will be coming back for sure :)
Another excellent meal at EDNA. We shared the burrata salad to start, which was plenty for two. It was so delicous I was tempted to lick my plate. For our main, we both had the duck confit, which was also outstanding. To finish off, one of us had the the pot au chocolat and the other the creme brulee. Just the right size and sweetness to end the meal. The service was professional and attentive as always. We were served by Cora, who worked at Jane's before it closed and came to work at EDNA when it opened. Always nice to see a familiar face and to be treated like old friends.
Lobster toast was real comfort food. The halibut was cooked perfectly and a satisfying portion size without being overwhelming.
Incredible, as always. Great steak, great pork chop and sides. Plus a fun wine list to work through.
Food was great, server was attentive and efficient with a witty charm
A most enjoyable evening .Food was great as was the service.A bit noisy.Have you considered some baffles at all for the noise
Love the ambience. We had a table for 4 and we did not feel like we were jammed in beside other tables as you do in so many restaurants. We could hear each other's conversations...a big plus. The food was innovative and delicious. All 4 of us have high standards and all 4 of us were very happy. They had a burger on special with some crispy frites on the side...who could ever say not to an amazing burger? One of us had the vegetarian option which was crispy eggplant - delicious. Burrata salad for starter - paired with flavourful dressing. Cocktails were an art form...we all started and they were complex, beautiful to look at and a great way to start the evening. Service was excellent.
Easily the best restaurant in the city. Thanks so much!
We were introduced to Edna by our daughter several years ago. It was memorable then, and despite 3 or 4 years passing with only a handful of visits, it seems to have only gotten better. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was very, very good. Amongst the one or two best meals we've had since moving to Halifax 5 years ago. I'd have no qualms whatsoever in recommending this cosy spot to even the most discriminating foodie. Minor point to be considered... it isn't the most affordable spot in town.
Hidden gem in Halifax, check this place out NOW, it is bound to keep climbing up the ranks … outstanding food, presentation and a great wine list!
Our favourite HALIFAX restaurant. Amazing service and food as always. The staff/chef are always happy to accommodate our request for vegan options. Just love this place.
It was our second birthday celebration. They accommodated our own cake. Not every restaurant will. Food and service were excellent.
It was my wife and I's 39th wedding anniversary, the food was not up to the standards of the food described. My wife chose the guinea hen which was under cooked and sent back to the kitchen twice. Then, we were provided scallops and the risotto was not risotto, it was a simple rice. I was expecting more from this well regarded restaurant. The waitress was excellent, very professional and empathetic.
Always exceptionally fine food. This was no exception. The short rib I had was beautifully cooked. Cucumber gimlet was delicious as was the red wine. One of my favorites
Amazing food and great service.
I’ve been to Edna so many times and it’s by far one of my favourite spots in the city. Nice decor, delicious food, and the staff is attentive and just incredible. I had the Burrata Salad for starters followed by the 12 OZ. P.E.I. Blue Dot Rib Eye. For dessert, I had their Flourless Chocolate Cake with a scoop of ice cream. All I can say is WOOW!! 🤤
When you come into Edna, you can feel that all the people that work there feel like they’re a part of something; everybody works with a passion and enjoys being there and prioritizes customer service.
Finally, I want to said thank you to the Kristy-Ann (our server) and the Edna team for providing a special food and unique environment!! PS. Don’t get me started on their weekend brunch, a MUST-GO and worth the wait.
My favorite restaurant in Halifax. Amazing food, incredible service, well-priced, local ingredients and soft, comfortable environment.
Very delicious food! Staff is friendly. Will recommend to friends
Great atmosphere, great food, great service! Can’t wait to go back!
Lights could be lowered and some candles would add to the ambiance.
Amazing restaurant with great staffs! Thank you for the great evening
So, so glad I finally ate at this restaurant. Wonderful and our wait staff was just so personable. Really nice experience.
Always a pleasure and delicious!
Really great service. Awesome old fashion, too. Small menu, but great options.
Will have to travel back to Halifax just go back! Highly recommend!!
The incredible staff at EDNA always know how to make their customers feel special. I happened to be celebrating my bachelorette party with my 8 closest girlfriends and we were greeted with a bottle of champagne, as well as a complimentary appetizer. I will always praise and recommend EDNA because they are simply the best.
