The deal was amazing & ambiance was great! I had a lot of fun my only issue was a lot of the food was lacking seasoning. The buns on the sliders were just straight out of the store they weren’t even toasted so it was like raw bread and the Mac & cheese tasted like nothing. It felt like the food didn’t even have salt and pepper let alone seasoning. But I guess we got what we paid for

We were disappointed in the quality of the food and the amount of food waste that went into the menu. When we sat down our cups were clearly dirty (had lipstick in them from someone else) and it was hard to get water refilled. There wasn’t enough time to eat the food that was coming out and it resulted in most of the food being uneaten.

Halifax is one of those places you return to again and again. The food is great, the skyline views are beautiful and the service is excellent. Weng, one of the general managers, is the epitome of superb customer service. He is thoughtful and caring towards his customers. Every time we visit, he makes us feel like family and is alot of the reason we enjoy our experiences there. I highly recommend Halifax for any type of occasion or non occasion. I held my baby shower there recently and it was just gorgeous. Thank you to Weng and the Halifax team!

Selected the Sunday brunch with unlimited mimosas. All was very good. Next dishes came out too fast - but slowed down once we specifically asked for them to.

The hostess and one waitress were not friendly. We had to ask for Menkes after sitting for 10 minutes.
The fritters were dry.
The salmon tasted off and wasn’t pink…
The Hispanic bar tender was the only one that was working hard there.

Fair prices and a very inviting ambiance. The staff was super friendly and intensive which was very nice and sort of rare nowadays given everyone is so short staffed.
My wife and I got a Cesar salad to split then she had the lobster rigatoni and I got the Pork Chop for my Entree. They were both a 10/10 and I could not get enough of my Delicious Chop it was that good BUT the Pork Chop entree DID make me very sick on my drive back into the city to a point where I had to pull over. I know it was from the pork because that is the one thing my wife did not eat and she was perfectly fine.
Even after getting sick I would recommend to a friend as this establishment lived up to its name. You can’t beat great food and a nice staff. Especially not in this day.
Can someone please talk with the kitchen about the pork chop entree. If it helps I was there around 7:00/8:00pm December 6, 2021. Thanks!

Food was good. We had the mussels, fritto misto, seafood cavatelli, and lobster rigatoni. I felt that the pasta itself was a little bland, it didn’t taste like it was cooked with salt but the sauce was tasty. We also had the Apple fritters which were great! Thank you to management for treating us to desert on our anniversary.

Service was good. Shout-out to the buser for staying on top of our table. My water glass was never empty and he checked in frequently enough throughout our diner.

Wish our server checked in on us more, looks like he relied on his support staff through the whole night.. He also didn’t introduce his name to us when we were greeted. He was a nice guy but did the bare minimum.

Overall, the location is beautiful with a great view of NYC. Great spot for a date. Good food and good service.

Fruit flies literally swarming our table the second our drinks were dropped. Had to send back our oysters for bits of shells in every one. The food was okay but the entire experience was actually intolerable because of those fruit flies. Every table had napkins covering their drinks and if not for the fact that I had to eat because of a time crunch I would have left.

Halifax is a beautiful restaurant at the Waterfront in Hoboken. The menu is small but with good ingredients. Service was outstanding. It is great for a dinner for 2 as well as for a bigger group. Cocktails that are not on the menu are a bit expensive. However, great restaurant experience overall.

Food quality was way below expectation. Flatbread violated the word "flat". Taste was so so. Full portion Lobster Rigatoni was overpriced. The total "chucks" (better be described as small pieces) of lobster was far less than half of a lobster tail. The taste of it? Ha Ha ... water with pinch of salt. Smoked Amish chicken had smoky favor but kind of dry not moist. Service was fine as what should be expected in that price range of restaurant.

Halifax's atmosphere feels a bit like a middle of the road hotel restaurant (with awesome views), but the similarities stop there. The food was outstanding - I had the cod and my friend had the steak. The wine, cocktail and whiskey selection was surprisingly deep. And our server was awesome despite having way too many tables. She hustled continuously but never seemed harried.
