What’s not to love about Eliot & Vine? It has a beautiful bar and good design. The food is really delicious, carefully prepared and served with flair. The serving staff are attentive and extremely friendly. Try the fried Brussels sprouts. You wont’t believe how good sprouts can be!

IT was wonderful to have a dinner out after so many months of social distancing. My thanks to all the staff for making this an enjoyable evening. The food was great as usual and the cocktails were delicious as well.
For anyone who is concerned....they are following all the rules to make it a stress free, safe experience.

Too notch service. Slightly above average oysters. Not a lot of choices for mains or apps. Buck a shuck is fun but other oyster happy hours in the city are a better value.

Brussel sprout shareable was delicious.
Service was a bit aloof - just one person behind bar and once we were seated we needed to get his attention if we wanted something/were ready to order, etc.
Food and drink delivery was very fast once ordered
Table by door was a biit cool/exposed and an odd choice given we had made a reservation, the entire restaurant was empty and therefore much nicer locations were available
Mains were also very good as was the bread.

The meal, ambience and service was excellent. I had made a reservation a few weeks ahead of time and wasn’t pleased to be set directly in front of the door where it was cold when ppl enter. I personally don’t think that should be a reserved spot. Thank you for a delicious meal.

It was good and the atmosphere was delightful and so was the confort and service. The only thing is I found it to be a little steep price wise. For example, my 9 oz of cab sauvignon cost about $16, and it was so-so. My pasta dish was delicious, but lukewarm to cold. Even thou it tasted good. I like my food warm to hot, so that was a bit disappointing. The desert, which was chocolate ginger cake with ice pecan brittle and sticky toffee was Amazing. I would go back for the desert and the atmosphere.

What a wonderful New Year’s Eve dining experience. This gem is consistently a pleaser. There was a very fun party vibe . The menu offering was amazing. The spring roll appetizer was delicious and fun to see on the menu. My beef tenderloin with wild mushroom Demi was done to perfection and the potato pave, parsnip purée and asparagus were so so tasty. I shared a rum eggnog brûlée for dessert that was a sheer delight. My favourite restaurant in Halifax and an amazing evening ! Thanks

Our favourite place for a perfect night out together. Staff are always welcoming. Great vibe with a perfect bar if you're on your own or just dropping in with friends for a drink. The tables are close together but that's not a problem here. We like to be by the windows. The menu changes and the food is absolutely excellent and we have a hard time choosing which plate to try. Nice wine list, by glass, 1/2 litre or bottle. Already looking forward to our next visit.
