    I loved the Traditional Eggs Benedict! My hubby isn't an egg lover so he asked if he could substitute sausage for his breakfast meal. The server went to see if it was possible and came back saying it was a no go as the sausage would only be for their morning special that they had on. Also, his breakfast came with dry toast that was not buttered. He asked for butter and Jam and the server advised that there would be an extra fee for that! Typical breakfasts include butter and jam for toast normally so we were disappointed. Also, when the server did bring butter it was garlic butter which was strange to us. My husband wasn't happy with his breakfast because of those issues and said he's not keen on going back. I, on the other hand, would go back for the eggs benny. Also, the restaurant is very noisy so it's difficult to talk to people at your table without raising your voice :(

    My sibling and I had a fabulous brunch here. Lots of space between tables, a very clean environment with hand sanitizer available upon entry. We were greeted and seated very quickly upon arrival. Our server was so friendly, comfortable and present, very attentive and accommodating with our orders and substitutes requested. The grapefruit mimosa was made with FRESH pressed juice! It tasted just as good as it looked (very pretty colour!) the original caesar was good, but I prefer the spicy green bean or celery instead of the hot pepppers garnish, just personal preference, I will definitely try the green caesar instead next time. I like the added touch of the QR code menus, I hope more places follow suit. I ordered the eggs benny with bacon and it was literally the BEST benny I've EVER had, please keep it on the menu! The biscuit was hot and fresh and stayed crisp on the edges even under the homemade hollandaise, the egg and bacon was cooked perfectly. The hashbrown (it's one, not the tiny cubes) was delicious, crisp with creamy mashed potatoes inside. My sibling had a breakfast sandwich and added the brisket instead of ham, they said the brisket was the best they've ever tasted, we wished it was more represented in the menu instead of offered only as a side. All in all 10 out of 10, already looking forward to going back in the future.

    Great restaurant with amazing food! Service was a little slow for not having a lot of people in the room and that's my only complaint but really our waiter was awesome and super nice. I would suggest different bottles to serve water in since they easily spill. The dirty rice is AMAZING! Totally go and eat yummy food, drink fresh juice and hot coffee.

    We had a great experience at Almonak on Saturday night for 4 people. Service was attentive and professional. The menu is small and you should check ahead of time to make sure that your party's tastes can be accommodated. The food is delicious, and they carry Shandaph oysters which were absolutely delicious even without any fancy condiments. We appreciated the bring-your-own wine option ($25 corkage fee)

    I have been here a number of times. Recently they changed their menu from an eclectic array of choice to a brunch menu. I was disappointed to say the least . The menu was very veg forward but the new lunch menu is not. I had the Romaine Hearts . At 15$ this consisted of 4 leaves, 1 small egg , a few cherry tomatoes and a small amount of shredded cheese. Very disappointing and not filling. I heard they have may have lost their chef that made the restaurant a hit. I won’t be back, many places in Halifax do an excellent breakfast, this is not one of them. So sorry they changed🙁 Louis Clavel has left the restaurant 😒

    Almonak has the most creative and delicious food I’ve had anywhere in Halifax. I would happily return until I’ve tried everything on the menu. I find it noisy, therefore hard to have conversations, but the food is worth it!

    The food is terrific, but conversation is difficult because of the high noise level. I may return for dinner with one person but will not try to have 3 or more for a business meal because of the noise level. It is hard to understand why a restaurant with such great food and service would not put some simple sound dead proofing baffles on their ceilings to control the noise level.

    Absolutely amazing food and service. My new favourite spot in the city. Eclectic menu with some really original combos and a few items not available anywhere else in the city (like yucca fries). The whole dessert menu is perfection. Went for lunch last week and the food was phenomenal and out fast. Server was very professional and attentive. Can’t wait to go back.

    This is a new restaurant. The service was excellent and it had lovely decor. The food presentation was wonderful. That being said, this restaurant is not for everyone. Food choices are served in bowls and are recommended for sharing. The menu may be a tad too artisanal for mainstream diners. The Brunch menu has been highly recommended, so we will try that out.

    I can only speak for the evening menu but the portions were ridiculously small, and the dishes were very conceptual. We spent a lot of money but left feeling hungry! I am sure their other menus for Brunch, Lunch and Afternoon are better value for money.
