Excellent food, wonderful staff, quiet and elegant restaurant. I’ve dined at most of the fine dining locations in Halifax and I would recommend this spot for a great overall dining experience.
Restaurant has a very warm, comfortable atmosphere. Servers are friendly and very knowledgeable on menu options. The salt cod cakes with mustard pickle relish were very tasty- would recommend and with the extra crispy frites. we will be back to try more of the menu options.
Francisco was an awesome waiter. Always a pleasure to dine here. Top drawer for Food and ambiance.
Booked over Open Table, arrived and found the restaurant wasn’t event open. I double checked— our reservation was the correct date and time. We ate at the bar in the hotel and had some great food from a kind bar tender who gave great service, but not impressed with Gio.
As always, an extremely reliable location for a business meeting or quiet discreet discussion. The food and service are always simply excellent.
Our mains were local scallops with pea risotto. All so yummy and a beautiful set of flavours. The scallops were cooked perfectly and a very healthy number of them. Great Sancerre wine with the meal which paired superbly. The service was friendly and very attentive. Always a great meal here.
Only complaint was the length of time it took to get our main course.
Our server was amazing! He catered to our special dietary needs, recommend delicious cocktails, had attention to every detail, special treats throughout, a beautiful and special dessert plate for our Anniversary. The food was beautiful and delicious, such a great experience!
Great lobster out of the shell and great scallops. Wonderful decor and service.
Overall good experience. Mains took longer than they should have. Nice setting. Service was very good.
An elegant dining venue. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was excellent - three courses and a total of 8 different dishes - all excellent.
However, even after our request to reduce the volume, management insisted on loud brassy music, so incongruous with the room and the cuisine! Soft jazz or classical would suit the experience so much better.
We decided to have a treat as we are on holiday for the first time in Canada and after being married for over 42 years. We weren’t disappointed- everything was perfect the staff were attentive and the food was delicious. Portions were excellent with lovely spoonfuls of delight for an appetiser and to cleanse palette between courses. Highly recommended
Excellent repas ! Service impeccable !
Je recommande fortement !
I enjoy this restaurant for both client and personal occasions. Easy to converse, food is great, and your art is fun to look at. The wall of glass is fabulous (and worth going to see)
Four of us went before a concert. We all had the Halibut which was outstanding. Place was packed so it was loud but overall very good. Waitress made sure she served us so that we got to the concert on time. Great food.
Wonderful meal, great service. We arrived early for our reservation and they were able to accommodate us and promptly provided service to meet our timeline.
Exceptional as always!!!!
I would love to review this experience, but unfortunately the restaurant was closed. Despite reserving in early November and receiving a confirmation, and despite no holiday hours being posted on their website or social media, we arrived and the restaurant was dark. We spent money on the hotel specifically because of our reservation. This wrecked Christmas Eve plans that could have easily been prevented if they had updated their hours accordingly in the nearly two months between my initial reservation and our date. I am a local and I won't be returning, especially since I sent an email and gave them plenty of time to respond and at least offer an apology. I never received a response. Very disappointed as I have enjoyed my meals there in the past.
Great place to do a business lunch, quiet and staff are excellent
Excellent food and service
Excellent food and wine. Service was excellent as always
