Great service and food. They made us a special meal to meet our dietary needs.
Very good atmosphere and excellent service. The chef felt our dinner took too long so gave us complimentary drinks, appetizers and deserts. We will eat there again and recommend.
Food was excellent and the waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food. Would definitely dine there again.
My wife and had a very nice evening out.Our server was very attentive and friendly.
The food and atmosphere was great. The only thing that I would like to mention is that one of us had a Gluten allergy, the menu had GF options but one was marked incorrectly. We were lucky that my friend asked for GF bread before our apps arrived because the GF app he order was not actually GF. Thankfully our hostess thought to double check after he ordered the bread. Other than that it was a lovely meal. Will definitely return.
The service was fantastic and the food was even better. Best oysters I’ve ever had!
Renovated dining room is very nice. Who statuses and waitress we’re very pleasant and helpful. Having said that, I think the waitress was very inexperienced and forgot several things and seemed flustered. The wait time for food was abnormally long. The medium rare steak was at least medium. The lobster tails seemed well overcooked. The risotto was overcooked. Overall, we are not demanding people but the Food was regarded as a disappointment by all three of us and our wait time was excessive. Lovely restaurant however and everyone was trying.
Food was not what was expected nor was the creativit such as the beef tartar ot tharcitc char in any way tasty or on par with other fining dining
We eat out a lot and try to support local restaurants. This was one of the better meals we have had in a long time. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We are already planning on going back.
My companions raves about their dishes. My lobster was okay. Kind of bland. And overcooked. I was warned as you only eat lobster at home but had a craving. Anyways still good. Appetizers great and halibut really good
A very nice evening and the rose, card and desert for my wife's birthday was appreciated.
Best service and best food. Price is right for the value of the experience.
I've heard of this place for years, I had surf and turf, steak was bland and not cooked great. Lobster tail which was chopped up lobster in a sauce, flavor was okay, but very little lobster and veggies were very minimal a portion of veggies my 6 year old granddaughter would eat. In a nutshell for me I paid $60+ for a steak and five spears of asperagus. My girlfriend had the five fish meal and her lobster tail was small, the risotto was okay, not even good and fish sub par. This was my first and last visit. The best experience for us was our waitress, she was amazing.
Enjoyed a wonderful evening with my wife celebrating the birth of our granddaughter - a huge occasion. Our experience was commensurate with the event. Intriguing environment, amazing service from Laura and the bartender and the food was cooked to perfection. I had the fresh local oysters and lobster for dinner. Both fresh and prepared perfectly.
We had an amazing meal at The Five Fishermen. Our steak was cooked so perfectly that we asked our waitress the name of the chef. Chef Greg, thank you for taking such care with our meal. We cannot wait to visit again.
Husband and I went here to celebrate our first year wedding Anniversary and we had outstanding service and hands down one of the best tasting food around.
Went above our expectations. Food was excellent along with the service. Being our anniversary they had champagne waiting for us brought out a complimentary appetizer and end the meal with bringing my wife a rose. Could not have asked for a better evening.
We had a great evening meal, it was very quiet, due to the Covid, but the food and especially the service was first class. Our server, Ankush, was attentive and informative without being pushy.
The service and the food was great love going to the five fisherman’s.
We really enjoyed the food and the service was impeccable. We did feel however the ambience of the restaurant was downgraded by very loud music and the chatter of the employees heard above it at times.
Thank you Megan for the great service. We felt like there was very little lobster in the lobster carbonara with a restaurant named the five fishermen and being in Halifax NS. One would expect more.
Fantastic food! Perfect seafood.
Dont share the carb/lobster cake, get your own!!Will be back!
Amazing experience! Food was superb & service was splendid!
Food and service were excellent. It was very quiet but that was due to the current circumstances!! Would definitely recommend!! Phil was excellent and attentive
Unbelievable experience, came here for my boyfriends birthday. The team and especially Laura went truly above and beyond. I’ve worked in the hospitality industry for 12 years all around the world, I have a high expectation in service and experience.
This was BEYOND! And I don’t say that often or hardly ever.
The sweet genuine nature of Laura she was suggestive, up selling and just truly a joy and her team made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. They surprised and delighted us more then 4 times! They gave my boyfriend a birthday card at the end of the dinner form the whole team.
On top of that exceptional service the food was unreal, I had the halibut and my boyfriend had the five fishermen entree with most amazing selection of fish.
I would recommend anyone to come here, you would be so lucky to experience what we did last night.
My wife and I started with the oysters, followed up by the Arctic Char and beef spare ribs.
The presentation and the balanced flavors made the meal. The attentive staff and the never empty glasses made the night. :)
We had an excellent dining experience and would definitely come back again!! Everything was excellent...the ambience , the food and the service was over the top great!!!
The service was amazing, everyone from the waitress to the bartender was fantastic. The food was exemplary - what a gifted chef! All the flavours and textures worked together perfectly. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a top-tier seafood dinner. If you're visiting Halifax, dining here is an absolute must! Thank you, Five Fishermen.
Always great food.
Has never let me down and I have eaten there 6 times.
I went to the Five Fisherman on my last night of living in Halifax did 10 years. And I’ve been wanting to go for all 10 of them.
It was worth the wait. The food was the best I’ve ever had in Halifax. The service was too notch. And they made me feel really special on my last night.
I couldn’t recommend more!
Excellent atmosphere. Delicious food. Very friendly staff. A little bit expensive though. Overall, very satisfied.
Very good experience! Will recommend it to friends. But, the parking situation is to be desired. No Parking!
Food was excellent. The server was great. We all enjoyed the meal and all aspects of the restaurant.
Très bon repas, tous les plats des 5 personnes ont été appréciés! Le homard était cuit à la perfection et malgré le prix cela valait le coût (pas une attrape touriste). Attention à la section des salles où vous serez assis.
Sauf l’expresso allongé qui n’était qu’une grande tasse d’eau!
Amazing! Cozy restaurant, amazing food. Great service. Would definitely go back!
My only issue was with the mussels. I found them over cooked stringy and difficult to remove from the shell. The broth and everything else was delicious!!
A great evening. Friendly staff...great atmosphere.
The quality of the food is good, however the menu choices are limited. The overall ambiance of the restaurant is pleasant and the servers are efficient. It is pricey for the quality of the food.
We went for our Anniversary Dinner and it was amazing. It was the best dinner we have had in Halifax!
Food was disappointing cod was lying in a pool of oil and wine in lobster pasta was not cooked off. Cocktails were not good either
