This place always impresses. The steaks are always tender, the drinks are expertly crafted, and the menu always offers something for everyone.

I will be going back!

Highly recommend! I’ve never had a disappointment here. Oysters were delicious and the Halibut with hodge podge was spectacular.

Our meal there was amazing and our server was very nice. Only downside was the 12 oyster limit which I’ve never experienced in my oyster travels! If there is an hour for this deal, they should be unlimited or at least have this 12 max rule on the website 😊

Hi Kristine, I'm so happy you enjoyed Eliot&Vine. We have a limit on happy hour oysters because we are a small restaurant and we want to make sure everyone can get their oysters by the end of happy hour and that we don't run out. Our oysters are fresh from Pristine Bay NS and delivered regularly. Thank you for your comment about this and the suggestion of adding this to our website. Hope to see you again soon at Eliot&Vine !

Made dinner reservations. Showed up on time. Was informed that they were sold out of all their main dishes but one. Left and ate elsewhere. Thanks for wasting my time.

Went for the one dollar oysters at happy hour- great deal! Paired with happy hour wine and beer, and some truffle fries which were Delish. Waiter offered sparkling or still water when we arrived so we chose sparkling, which was tap water with added carbon dioxide I believe - didn’t find out until we paid that it was 6 dollars! Waiter was quiet, not very interactive. Overall good experience. We didn’t stay for entrees so can’t speak to those. When we were finishing up the restaurant was filling with a strong fish scent from the kitchens, like a fish market, which was definitely not appealing but we were on our way out regardless.

Excellent food. They seemed to have missed my note on open table that we had dairy free and gluten free persons in our party BUT the chef lept to the challenge and made a wonderful entree. Everyone was thrilled. They were very busy so service was a bit below normal but very friendly and very helpful!

We had visited E&V once for drinks when they first opened but hadn’t been back since. I’m now upset that I missed so many opportunities for great food! Both the space and the menu are small but thoughtful. The dining room is cosy and beautiful, and you don’t need a huge menu when everything is made this well. So well, I dreamt about the Brussels Sprouts. :)

We were 3 couples which included 2 sisters and a cousin. It was valentines but also Ron and my anniversary- 11th & 8th - commonlaw and marriage. First time at this restaurant which feels like a Neighbourhood restaurant, though first time visit. The service was friendly, relaxed and pleasant. We didn’t feel rushed. We were able to carry a conversation which was pleasant. The food was excellent. A couple of us had the mushroom pasta, lamb, and not sure what the rest ordered. Everyone was very pleased with their order. Our conversation was lively but not disturbing to others - I don’t think. The owner came to thank us for coming before we left, a personable and nice gesture. I would love to come back with a group of people or just my hub and I. I really appreciate being able to talk without strain.

Overall we felt that the experience was not up to the norm we have previously experienced. We were seated promptly. Noise level was better than usual. Placed our orders - 1 lamb shank and 1 chicken carbonara. Two chicken carbonara arrived. Order returned and about 10 minutes later the correct orders arrived; waitress took full ownership for mixed up order. Carbonara was excellent. Lamb shank itself was very dry - cooked in a microwave maybe. The pillaf with the shank was excellent.
Based on past experiences we will be back.

The abbreviated menu offered some odd items. The only pasta on the menu was $50. Excessive for HRM. Prices were a little too high.

First time visiting this establishment. it is a smallish, modern decor restaurant, with good wait staff. Food was only ok with respect quality, and price point was a bit high for the pasta offerings. Our server indicated that the menu had recently changed, and perhaps the earlier version provided better quality and value.
The chicken pasta dish I had seemed to lack much identifiable chicken, but had an abundance of hard brown bits of something that would get stuck in your throat. My wife's pasta dish was quite good, nice level of spice, but priced a bit on the high side for the content.
Was looking forward to trying this spot, and was hoping for a good experience. Unfortunately not somewhere I would try again.

Food was above average, good presentation, balance and overall thoughtful dishes. Menu is short and concise but lacks a special. In a coastal city based restaurant it would have been nice to see some more local offerings. Most elements were good with some very good (short rib).

Overall would recommend.
