Great food , freshly prepared , interesting tastes with excellent friendly service. Which makes for a perfect dining experience.
Consistent, superb quality in every dimension. Cocktails are the best among those that claim to make original cocktails (seriously try the Juan McGregor), wine list well curated, well balanced menu for different tastes.
Wonderful food and great service. We try to visit whenever we are in Halifax.
I love E&V - a beautiful space with great food and well-crafted cocktails. Excellent service. Will be back!
Enjoyed Brussels sprout appetizer, lamb shank was excellent… server was helpful and pleasant
The waitress was quite friendly. I ordered the lamb biriyani, steak frites and summer sangria. The food was of very poor quality. The steak frites was cooked sous vide (medium) but when it arrived it was blue rare and the fat and veins were still white. When we asked to send it back another server came out and loudly insisted the steak was cooked perfectly and we just didn’t understand what sous vide meant and that the temperature was perfect despite me pointing out that it steak was blood red and cold on the inside. We had eaten most of the fries as we were hungry waiting for the waitress to come back and 3 bites of the steak so I was very surprised to see the full price of the meal on my bill. The sangria is was very watered down and overpriced for the quality. I really wanted to enjoy this restaurant, I live close by and have been looking for a new regular spot but I was very embarrassed by the aggression from the staff and the quality of the food.

Great meal as always. Good service and efficient! Will be back
Thanks Erin for your kind review! We've worked hard to curate a wine list that features local and imported wines we love. Looking forward to having you back soon. Cheers!
Creativity abounds in food and drink - will return for further explorations.
Perfect dining experience,food,ambience,service-we’ll be back!
Thank you GloriaB for your wonderful review! Looking forward to having you back again soon.
Food was wonderful. Staff was helpful and friendly. Overall a very fine experience.
Great food. Great service. Great company. A lovely evening!
Great wine selection and even though you would never consider ordering roasted brussel sprouts as an appetizer. Do it!
Thanks TimB for your review! Our brussel sprouts are a crowd favourite. So glad to hear they helped defeat the stereotype against brussel sprouts for you, haha! See you soon!
Excellent! Consistently great cocktails! Our group ordered 6 different drinks for a mid-week celebration and all of them were delicious! Service was friendly and the fastest I've ever experienced in Halifax.
So glad to hear your group enjoyed your experience, Bron! Our cocktail menu is always changing, so we can't wait to have you back to try some fresh ones!
Excellent evening. Service was not rushed and food was very good.
We sat at table 9 indoors with lovely open windows and light; others on patio. Shared happy hour $1 delicious oysters, flat bread, wonderful brussel sprouts and then I had the caesar salad which I love - shavings of cheese, good real bacon, a light dressing. Service was excellent; our server let us extend happy hour a bit since two members of our party were late. This is a great spot to meet for a patio drink or a full-course dinner and with all the open windows and clear barriers it feels both very safe and not Covidy.
Thanks for your review, AlleyneB! So glad that our servers were able to accommodate your group - our Happy Hour is something we think everyone should experience! Hope to have you back soon!
Fantastic food, great service and a good atmosphere. We love this restaurant.
Hi CatherineY, we're so glad you enjoyed dining with us! Our restaurant loves to host a date night, so we hope you'll be back soon!
Nice small intimate place for lunch or dinner with friends.
Great atmosphere. Awesome cocktails and apps.
Thanks for another fantastic experience and meal! Cheers
Great wine, food and atmosphere. Server was knowledgeable about wine and even though there was a mix up with our order, he handled it with ease, humour and grace. We look forward to returning!
Given COVID-suffering restaurants, E & V was terrific. The plexiglass dividers were very good, both psychologically and generally keeping general restaurant noise down. However, they weren’t much help keeping us from hearing our noisy neighbors. Maybe, in fact, they were great - can’t imagine the noise level without them!
I am used to excellent food at E & V. Meal was good but not up to E & V standards. Salmon over cooked and only mediocre flavor. Pasta got boring after halfway through. E & V usually do better.
A good excuse is that they were terrifically busy. Partial lifting of lockdown!
Anyway, we really like it there and will go back.
Eliot & Vine has been one of our favorite restaurants since we moved to Halifax in 2019. We highly recommend it for a casual meal or a lovely date night.
Delicious food! We enjoyed the drinks, appetizers, main course and dessert! Cozy, inviting space with friendly, efficient service! We will definitely be back!
Lamb shank was delicious.
Service was very pleasant and attentive.
The lamb was amazing. Fell off the bone. Highly recommended.
Love this restaurant - never a disappointing meal, never bad service. Thanks to Phil for a relaxing, fun evening!
Fantastic meal, service & experience. Thanks so much!
Such a great atmosphere! The waiter is 5 star and the food is a must try for everyone!
Food is amazing. Like really amazing. The price point is higher for portions but that’s a reflection of quality versus quantity. If you like local ingredients, amazing flavours and quality food then this is your place. The only thing that surprised us foodies was the scallops. Amazing taste, but getting two for 16.00 dollars is a little steep for my liking. Four or even three I could justify paying for because of the quality but 8.00 each is not okay.
Great blues soundtrack at a volume that easily allowed conversation and delicious food, Brussels sprouts and scallops as applies, steak and lamb shank. Only the sticky toffee pudding didn’t live up to our high expectations.
We had a great time at Eliot & Vine! Food was delicious, drinks were great, service great as well. Only downside was we had hoped to have more oysters before they ran out! Maybe a supply issue? We had 10 people and there weren’t quite enough to go around. Otherwise a great night!
A pleasant surprise. Good food and service and a “neighborhood vibe” feel. Will certainly go again.
Salmon was excellent and so were the baby back ribs. My compliments to the chef
Delicious meal! Amazing server! Ambience was warm, comfortable, but alittle warm. We had the ribs, duck, and scallops, all were extremely delicious.
Had a reservation for 2, I was the only one who showed up. I was still made to feel comfortable and invited. The food was great! Had the scallops for an appetizer, the Mushroom Tornelli for my main, and finished off with the Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert. All were great in my books! The staff was very nice and friendly. If you are looking for a cocktail then I would suggest the Ricky Guava.
Excellent service with attention to detail, unfortunately I don't remember our female server's name.
Thank you for leaving us a review, Clairvoyant! We hope to see you again soon.
Excellent overall experience. Would recommend to vegetarians and meat eaters!
Enjoyed our experience and the food was amazing. Thank you you
Thanks for stopping by, KRAD! We hope to see you again soon.
This is an under appreciated restaurant in Halifax. The food and service are excellent.
Thank you for your kind words, RobinsonM! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your experience at E&V.
We were so pleased with our meal and the service and the restaurant as a whole. It was our first time and we are already planning our return. We talked about the food for days! Delish.
Thank you for leaving us a review, JulieL! We love to hear that E&V made a good first impression. Hope to see you again soon!
