We were offered a very nice table for three by the window. Our waitress was very attentive, pleasant, and overall professional. Great timing and good manners; not pushy.
We loved the Brussels sprouts appetizer. None of us had ever better Brussels sprouts than that. The local oysters were delicious and very nicely presented.
Our mains, seafood tagliatelle, scallops and vegetables (special order), and the lamb shank curry were really delicious and very nicely presented.
The wine is pricey per glass, so we had a bottle.
Our specialty coffees were a hit; the sticky toffee pudding was good and big enough to share among us.
We will certainly return due to the excellence service, food, and atmosphere. Eliot & Vine is a rare example for high end dinning in Halifax that's neither uptight nor hipster style.

Food was good but extremely small portions, even for fine dining. I have never left a restaurant feeling hungrier after a near $100 meal.

Service was great, very friendly and knowledgeable but unfortunately not enough to make up for the disappointing experience of my meal.

Eliot & Vine
Responded on September 15, 2021

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We apologize that you found your portion to be light. Some of our dishes are intended to be lighter fare, as we use high quality ingredients, and pack them full of flavour. Perhaps try our Steak With Mushroom Risotto or Tagliatelle next for a heartier portion! That said, our menu is always changing, so we hope you'll try us again soon. Cheers!

The food was good, the scallop starter was fantastic. However, it was let down by one of our mains that we had to send back. The staff were excellent and a replacement dish rectifying our complaint was bought quickly with an apology.

The setting was also very good, the front area is modern with lots of natural light. We were in the “frolic room” which offered a bit more intimacy and is tastefully decorated with huge printed canvases covering the whole of the walls.

We settled for wine, but the cocktails looked and sounded fab.

The Frolic Room is a stunning backdrop for a fun evening; we're so pleased you enjoyed your time! This room is often booked out for private parties and events. Our extensive wine list has been perfectly curated to include lots of diverse wines from local and foreign vineyards. Our tasty cocktails are always changing, and are very popular!

A lovely last minute reservation came through for us!
The seafood pasta was the star of our order - lots of scallops and salmon in there - a big hit. The Salmon main was also delicious, though the portion size may have been a bit on the small side - but that's a minor complaint.
Otherwise a great experience overall - a few more local beer options would be nice, but great overall.

Eliot & Vine
Responded on September 13, 2021

Thanks for the review! Our Scallop and Salmon Tagliatelle is a popular item - the seafood is always fresh and generous, and our chef hand-makes the pasta in-house. We're glad found our Salmon dish is delicious! Some menu items are definitely intended to be lighter. If you're looking for something heartier next time, we'd recommend the Tagliatelle or the Steak with Mushroom Risotto. We currently have 4 different, local beers on tap. Our menu's always changing, come back soon to see what's new!

We were welcomed warmly at the restaurant and asked if we wanted to sit inside or out. We chose outside which was fine- food was excellent :I had steak and risotto- the latter was perfectly ‘al dente’ and the steak was cooked to perfection and very tender.
Not much you can say about the street side ambiance- inside would be better on an evening with more fellow diners inside. Street was a bit noisy at times. Overall a great experience.

Eliot & Vine
Responded on September 10, 2021

Thank you so much for the lovely review, James. Our chef and his team work hard to deliver you the highest quality of meals. The Steak with Mushroom Risotto is rightfully popular, as we make sure to use local tenderloin and fresh ingredients. Our patio is tucked away on a side street, perfect for people watching without being right on the road, and is definitely a little more casual than indoors. Hope you get to experience our trendy indoor ambience on your next visit! Cheers!
