The food was great, there was five of us so we had lots of different dishes. But do not miss the calamari and the curry. Oh my heavens, lovely
Great drinks, great food, great service. Will go again and again and again.
best place ive been to in a long time! the staff are awesome, the drinks are fantastic and the food AMAZING and authentic
Studio East is our short list for "go tos" -food is always good, service is excellent but fun and relaxed. Have never been disappointed.
Wonderful service and obviously the staff team care about what they do. We went here for the first time and our server and the bartender both went out of their way to ensure we were happy. We will ABSOLUTELY be back and this just may become a regular spot for us!
Delicious food and excellent service. Can’t wait to come back!
Food was delicious, service was very friendly but a bit slow (they were quite busy though, so I don't really fault them and we weren't in any rush). Restaurant was very loud since the kitchen is open to the restaurant. We didn't really mind but if you have hearing issues or are looking for a quiet bite, this isn't the place.
Food was good, however our reservation was for 645, we were sat at the table and waited over 30 minutes for a drink order. Disappointing.
First of all, there were fruit flies at our table the entire time even with no food around as we were the only people inside. That means they’re all over the kitchen, yuck.
We were told the specials but when I inquired about fries after we started getting our food, then he said he has a fries special. Would’ve like to know it all at first. We ordered the fries on special and ate it but wondered about the unidentifiable cubes which we assume were chicken but it was fatty pork (nothing wrong with that) but that two of us didn’t enjoy and wished we knew because we would’ve not eat it.
The two servers came checking on us which is a good thing but the longest in between “table visits” was 3 minutes. I was running out of stuff to say. And one of them was quite uncomfortable which made it a bit awkward.
Food was quite good overall but I won’t return. The flies 🤢
You wanted my opinion so here it is!
Had the daily special and it was delicious and very reasonable.
The chicken karaage was amazing! Gabriel was our waiter, and although new, was great for suggestions on both dinner and drinks. Will definitely be back and hope to have him again.
Great experience at Studio East! Would definitely go again.
Always a lovely atmosphere, staff is friendly and approachable.
Thank you Todd for the kind words! We really appreciate it :)
Great food and staff who are passionate about making every visit a unique and personal dining experience!
Thank you Joseph :) Always a pleasure having you in with us !! -André
We had wonderful waiter and the food was tasty.. can’t wait to go back
Okay, this restaurant is UNREAL. The food was excellent. The drinks were perfection. The service was sooooo lovely (from the server to the chefs to the bartender, everyone was incredible)!!! Will definitely be coming here a lot more.
An overall good experience. Our waiter was decent but not very engaging.
For just opening up he didn’t seem very happy to be there.
Female that assisted was great.
Wonderful food and great service! We will back soon:)
A lovely spot with fabulous food and great people.
Love this place! Food is so amazing, service is friendly. Highly recommend.
Wonderful burgers. Amazing flavours and unique sauces.
Only reason for not giving them a five is that the buns are too soft to hold up to those wonderful sauces, so they got a bit soggy.
Regardless, great service
We always enjoy Studio east.
Service was great and they take great care to observe covid protocols.
My meal was extremely tasty.
And you don’t leave hungry.
The restaurant temperature was cold. I had to keep my winter jacket on. Others in the restaurant were also wearing their jackets. Some of the oysters we ordered were very small and one was quite dry. Disappointing at $3.50 an oyster. They were also overly seasoned, but we were able to remove access toppings. The short ribs were tasty but disrupted my non-sensitive stomach for hours. Server was prompt and helpful.
Interesting menu with delicious food.
The staff and owners are friendly and very helpful. This is a great place!
Delicious food and great local on tap options. My first ever bao bun did not disappoint. I knew after my first bite that I’d be back. Great, friendly service and a team that worked hard together to keep orders running smoothly.
Delicious food and charming service.
One of my favourite restaurants in Halifax.
This is one of Halifax’s gems !!
Amazing food and fantastic service. Asian influenced cuisine with something for everyone.
Caesar’s are the best in the city.
Food is always excellent here although tonight I did find it quite salty. Service continues to be somewhere from spotty to just poor. Initial greet and settle in is always good, this is the third time tho that we came to this restaurant, ate, and then was abandoned by the server - we had to go seek them out to get the bill. They have a number of 1/2 walls to make smaller seating areas due to Covid restrictions. We were surprised and unsettled to have another couple join us in our little area - I could have reached out and touched them it was so close. The place was packed.
It was a great experience! We were especially happy with the redesign that had the separated booths. I hope they keep this design change after the pandemic ends.
The Cambodian curry is to die for! Our server was really friendly and attentive. We got there just in time for happy hour as well which was a bonus! They are well set up for COVId restrictions.
Sunday night dinner with friends. Happy hour was a bonus! Bar service was a little slow and servers pretty chatty but otherwise really enjoyed our evening.
The food was fresh, full of flavour, and nicely presented. Service was pleasant and professional. We enjoyed our dining experience at Studio East and have recommended it to our friends.
Felt like the server didn’t care about my girlfriend and I, however, the straight couple next to us received outstanding and quick service. Felt treated unfairly as a young, queer couple. Wouldn’t recommend to young or queer friends.
Great the first time - 9/10. Terrible the second time 1/10.
Hello Station11, could you elaborate a little when you say "terrible" so we can work on correcting our possible mistakes. We aim to give diners the best experience every time they come in but comments such as these don't help us towards what went wrong. Best Regards, Studio East
Great food in a cool environment. Go visit these Guys.
The Bao Buns were outstanding. Bartender made a killer margarita. Would go back.
Great food and ambience. Well set up to handle COVID controls. I would highly recommend Studio East to any of my friends.
The food was absolutely amazing!!! The service was next level and Jess was a real treat! We will be back for more!!! Loved it!!!
The restaurant staff were a little awkward. The food was cold and didn’t taste great. We were sat in a back corner which ruined the vibes a bit and the music for a nice dinner was inappropriate it felt like I was in a club or a bar not a restaurant. Overall everything was okay but not my favorite experience ever.
Great food and service as usual
