    This was by far our best of our trip to Halifax. Everything was absolutely delicious and the portions are so generous. My husband started with the mussels then had the baked haddock and I had the lobster ravioli. EaCh fish was excellent. Cannot say enough great things about the restaurant. Our server Briea not sure how she spells it was excellent. This place is not to be missed

    Our experience here was amazing. The staff were fantastic, he food was amazing, and the entire energy made the experience that much better. You could tell that the team all worked so well together and the manager was the glue. She was attentive, patient and so aware of her customers needs. We were so impressed and I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will absolutely be back. It was a bit warm when we first arrived but the owner/manager was having that fixed and you could tell the difference immediately :) You’re all doing an amazing job!

    I had the radicchio salad which was excellent. Then I had the salmon. The salmon itself was excellent but the rice and vegetables were very plain. I thought they should have been more interesting. For dessert I had the cannoli which were tasty but could have used more strawberry in the mascarpone cream filling.

    I noted on my reservation that it’s for a special occasion to celebrate a birthday and there was no acknowledgment of it. I found the prices to be overpriced relative to the quality of the food. The bruschetta was good, but portion was too small. I ordered a medium well beef tenderloin and when I provided feedback to the waiter to tell him it’s burnt and dry, he basically blamed me and said anything above medium is dry. I told him I’ve ordered medium-well steaks elsewhere and it had a bit of pink and it was juicy. He then left in a puff and was very visibly annoyed instead of apologizing. Very poor customer service. Won’t be going back.

    The ambience for "fine dining" was a bit plain-no tablecloths or placemats. My martini was not cold enough, olives tasted mushy and old. My pappardell with fennel sausage dish was fantastic-excellent tomato cream sauce. Caesar salad was a bit watery/lemony but croutons (which I normally don't eat) were the best I've ever tasted-buttery and chewy. Waiter was good but a bit too attentive which is better than the converse.

    Still one of the nicest places to eat in town to dress up for an exceptional dinner out, especially occaions. $200 for two starters, and mains, a decent bottle of wine and shared desert, and it's great food, so a very good deal...I think.
