Food is amazing. Like really amazing. The price point is higher for portions but that’s a reflection of quality versus quantity. If you like local ingredients, amazing flavours and quality food then this is your place. The only thing that surprised us foodies was the scallops. Amazing taste, but getting two for 16.00 dollars is a little steep for my liking. Four or even three I could justify paying for because of the quality but 8.00 each is not okay.

Great blues soundtrack at a volume that easily allowed conversation and delicious food, Brussels sprouts and scallops as applies, steak and lamb shank. Only the sticky toffee pudding didn’t live up to our high expectations.

We had a great time at Eliot & Vine! Food was delicious, drinks were great, service great as well. Only downside was we had hoped to have more oysters before they ran out! Maybe a supply issue? We had 10 people and there weren’t quite enough to go around. Otherwise a great night!

Had a reservation for 2, I was the only one who showed up. I was still made to feel comfortable and invited. The food was great! Had the scallops for an appetizer, the Mushroom Tornelli for my main, and finished off with the Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert. All were great in my books! The staff was very nice and friendly. If you are looking for a cocktail then I would suggest the Ricky Guava.

The seating is tight...four of us were seated at a table for 3 max., (although other tables were available)...very uncomfortable. The presentation of the food was very nice, however the quality was moderate....lower cuts of meat for a high cut price. The seafood course was a bit bland in taste, the steak frites could have used a vegetable accompaniment on the plate of some sort... The service was exceptional, a pretty good wine list, the restaurant has a Toronto vibe, with great background music, and elegant decor...All in all a 3 1/2 out of 5, which could be a 5/5 with a slight improvement in food quality and being able to properly seat a table of 4.

This is still one of our favorite restaurants in HRM. Its one of those places you can order literally anything on the menu and it will always be DEVINE! The entire staff is incredible. Love love love it there, and they are taking covid very seriously with all the proper implementations like seating dividers etc.. Thanks so much for making every experience a memorable one even in this trying time.

And don't get me started on their curated wine list and they even make brussel sprouts taste delicious!! I had the lobster risotto this time....tipped the chef.

Sincerely,
Cheryl and Greig

a fine Valentines' evening. Smiles at the door, an attentive but ghost like server, delicious cocktails, cozy intimacy and literally lick the plate main courses. The three of us nestled in and were permitted to stay until closing time with no worry or hurry.

Initially we were sat at a small table in between two other couples. The tables were separated by a hanging piece of clear plexiglass. The tables were so close together that to get to the seat on the window side, the couple beside us was disturbed by the glass moving towards their table and dinner. My partner could not even put his elbows out. Anyone slightly overweight would not have been able to get through there. I sat on the outside and could not even see the server. I could hear the conversations of the couples on either side of me perfectly, and felt like I was on a valentines date with 4 other people. I was appalled at this. If the glass were not there, it would have been totally inappropriate to sit couples that close. Having the glass may protect from covid-19, but it was no where near appropriate for an higher end restaurant. After stewing for 30 minutes, I asked the server to move us to another table. We were moved to a table with much more room, and even though there was glass separating us and another couple, we could not hear them, or see the details of their face in our peripherals. Our new server was extremely pleasant and turned the experience around for us. I understand restaurants are under hard times during covid-19 and with social distancing requirements, but that set up is totally inappropriate and unenjoyable for a high end restaurant. There is a line, and I believe it exists where the customer is uncomfortable.

Food and service were both great. Cozy decor and good playlist. Enjoyed the evening, but one thing we could have lived without was the hostess (perhaps the owner?) was a very heavy walker, you could hear her coming and clashed with the overall experience. My boyfriend referred to her as “the skinny elephant”. Maybe some softer shoes are in order?

Service is fantastic, interior soothing and the food is straightforward and wonderful. The approach seems to be not on putting together super complicated dishes, but on perfecting those that are offered. We got an appetizer and two very different dishes, all of which were simple perfection. So enjoyable. :)
