    The BEST Seafood in Halifax. Upon arrival the entire staff is warm & welcoming. Our Server Laura was AMAZING, we asked her for recommendations and they were all Exceptional. We mentioned that we were in Halifax for a conference that just finished and Five Fishermen was Highly recommended and again did not disappoint. Laura treated us with a few small tastings. If I lived in Halifax I DEFINITELY would be a regular. Thanks again for Fabulous Food & service Five Fishermen!!!!

    Food was very good. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Air conditioning was out on a very hot day but they ran fans throughout and were able to maintain a comfortable temperature. Recommended !

    Food was delicious and the service was attentive and engaging. We dined here to celebrate two birthdays. The Lamb Roulade was full of flavor. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly with a ripe peppercorn flavor. The story behind the building and room is fascinating. Ask the staff about it.

    We were timely greeted by three staff members and shown to our table. The upstairs bar area was incredibly noisy with laughter, chatter, and music. Our server greeted us and apologized for the extra loud guests as there was a conference party of 44 surrounding us. Whew! Our server was incredibly nice, knowledgeable, offered menu suggestions, and brought our drinks right away. Hendricks gin and tonic and sauv blanc wine were good and our water glasses were kept topped-off. We both ordered the Five Fish Experience. The fish was well-prepared and not overcooked - lovely! Our only complaint was the pea risotto which appeared to be a moderately-size portion and was very tasty, but did not sit well with either of us and seemed to expand four-fold causing gastric distress - most uncomfortable. We walked the .9 miles back to our hotel and collapsed as if we had finished three Thanksgiving meals in one sitting. Completely bizarre. Perhaps skip the risotto and simply enjoy the fine fish and exceptional service.
