The pork had been brined too long and over-salted—had to send it back as unedible. Staff were gracious and replacement game hen very good.

I came in with my 4 year old daughter who loves to eat out. Everyone who came to our table treated her so well and made it a special experience for her. Thank you for the great food and wonderful hospitality!

Had dinner at Edna last night. Excellent. The fried oysters and crab apps delicious as were the pork and Cornish hen mains. One of our top places to go when we visit Halifax.

Quick efficient friendly service. Room very dark hard to see what I was eating. Food was good, rib eye slightly over what I ordered.

We have now been here twice and love it! The food is exceptional. This time I had the octopus appetizer and the arugula and ricotta gnudi, and would eat the whole thing again the next night.

Before our trip to Halifax, so many friends told us we had to include Edna in our dining plans and I completely understand why. We loved our dinner! All our dishes were delicious. The squid "noodles' and seared scallops were standouts, but honestly we would re-order everything we ate. Our server was amazing - knowledgeable, personable and coursed our experience perfectly, and recommended fun and interesting wines. When we return to Halifax, we will return to Edna

Visiting Halifax from the states, this was a gem of a dining experience: a “foodies find”. Staff was graciously accommodating for an earlier seating than our original reservation…a prelude to the dining experience. Our waitress was deeply knowledgeable about the drink/meal menus. Overall, the service, the cocktails, the main course AND dessert exceeded our previously fabulous meal at another top-rated Halifax waterfront restaurant. CONGRATS to the Edna staff/chef who pull together this type of dining experience during these trying COVID days: EXCEEDINGLY WELL DONE!!!

Had heard such good things about Edna over the years. Our first time impressed. Food and service was EXCEPTIONAL. Not a large place, we were at a small table and it was pretty loud. Had the burratta for started (see pic) which I am still thinking about and the blue dot ribeye. Wow. We will definitely be back.

Outstanding service, exceptional food from an innovative menu. Located in a neighbourhood in rapid transition that is located between the Downtown Halifax tourist zone and the 'North End' homes of hip young professionals.

Best food in the city! Absolutely amazing, I’ve eaten at all the big names Bicycle Thief, Saltys, Five Fisherman and this is the best! The only think is I booked way in advance for an anniversary and got the worst seat in the place could almost clean the dishes. People great service great atmosphere great!

Great night out, service and ambience were on point. Our starters and mains were fantastic. Dessert wasn't that great, but as soon as they saw we were into it they took care of it and removed it from our bill/ not necessary, but appreciated. If you can get a table take it. One of, if not the best places in Halifax. Will definitely be back.

Everything was wonderful about our dinner at Edna Restaurant - the menu offered an excellent selection and was delicious, the service was friendly and perfect. The neighbourhood where the restaurant is situated is eclectic and interesting and well worth a stroll.
