Honestly, this is the best food in Halifax. I highly recommend putting your meal in the hands of the chef and feasting on their seven course tasting menu with wine pairings. The sommelier did an excellent job with the pairings, and the food was out of this world amazing. They did a snow crab dish with pickled pumpkin and hazelnuts that was unreal. Another highlight was sea-urchin spaghetti. It was the kind of food that you would never order but are so happy you had the privilege of eating. We had a great time.

Food and wine were great. However, unless you’re in to very loud rap and hip hop as dinner music and don’t mind not hearing what your dinner companions are saying, this is a place to avoid. Reached out to management on Instagram giving both positive and negative feedback. Crickets. Won’t be back.

The Ostrich Club is Halifax's best "hidden secret" restaurant. The renovations have made it even more appealing. We enjoyed the Duck + BBQ Eel Beignets, Strawberry Rhubarb pastry. BBQ Maitake Mushrooms, Roasted Cauliflower, Tuna Crudoponzu
and Mignon4oz AAA filet. Each was special and delicious.
We would especially recommend the Duck + BBQ Eel Beignets and the Maitake BBQ Mushrooms as being especially wonderful.

We really enjoyed our meal.
The restaurant has been recently renovated and looks great.
The staff were helpful and attentive.
The meal was excellent. Small plates but we all felt full after two entrees and desert.
We will definitely return soon.

We both had the eggs Benedict and unanimously agreed that they were very good. We weren't big fans of the music that was playing, or the volume, but then maybe we're just showing our ages and are out of step with the younger crowd. The Ostrich Club is certainly one of our favorite brunch spots in Halifax.

Small venue, especially with social distancing. I appreciate the quality and safety of having the beautiful Juliana and Ellie and all bar staff wearing masks. Their informed menu and cocktail recommendations are spot on. Truly a lovely experience.

Party of 4. Reservation on line tried for 5 wouldn’t accept. Nice atmosphere but a bit hard. Really ...I’m sure it’s Covid restricted as softening would be hard to clean. We liked the food, flavours were great. Bit over done on one order but staff great about replacing it. Service a bit inattentive as everything happening at once. I expect it will get smoothed out as they get accustomed to being open again. We had a good time and enjoyed our time there.

This was my second dinner experience at The Ostrich Club and each time has been spectacular. The food is inventive without being weird, the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive, the room is comfortable and inviting, and the wine menu is fantastic! We loved every minute of our time there.

Food and service was great. Music took away from the fine dining experience. Mentioned this to waitress and indicated manager looks after music. Easy listening music should always accompany fine dining experience.
