The distance between tables is too short. A table and another table are very close.
Thank you for your review. Our restaurant's ambience is designed to be trendy, romantic and intimate. We feel the distance between tables is not unusual for many restaurants like ours! For guests who would like more privacy, we recommend looking in to booking our private dining area, called "The Frolic Room." It's a beautiful space somewhat separate from the rest of the restaurant, perfect for birthdays, get togethers and date nights. Hope to see you again soon!
Service was excellent. Food was very good but perhaps a bit salty. Dessert of panna cotta was a bit disappointing.
Thank you for your review Lynn! We appreciate your feedback. The panna cotta is a very popular dessert, made fresh in house by our wonderful chef, and is sweet, creamy and light. Our delicious menu is always changing to reflect what is fresh and in-season. We hope you'll try us again soon!
We waited a very long time to get our order taken, and waited a long time for our bill. The restaurant is very crowded, we were pushed in a small table to the side directly behind the bar seats.
The food was very salt and the pork was extremely over cooked.
The menu item was not as described (wrong type of mushrooms served and they did not pair well with the dish)
The best part of the meal was the espresso.
The server was nice and friendly, but overall not a great experience.
Thank you for your review. Saturday night was an extremely busy night for us, and we apologize if that allowed to slower service than usual. The table you were seated at is often requested by guests, as it is located right at the front of our restaurant next to a large, beautiful window, and is decently private from other tables. We're glad to know you found the espresso to be delicious! We also offer a delicious range of cappuccino cocktails on our dessert menu! Hope you'll give us another try.
Food was good but service could have been better. Asked for all to be brought out at once but waiter delivered next tables order to us (partially same order) and didn’t deliver other half for about 10 mins by which time food was cold.
Also gave us next tables bill… just not on the ball unfortunately!
Thank you for your review. Saturday was definitely a very busy night for us, and we apologize that your service was not up to our usual fantastic standard. We pride ourselves on staffing knowledgable, professional and friendly servers, and we will do our best to make it up to you on your next visit. Our inventive menu is always changing, so keep an eye out for delicious new dishes. Hope to see you again soon!
Great spot. Went with my parents who were visiting us in the city. Great atmosphere, amazing food, service was wonderful and even though it was busy, it was still quiet enough to carry on a conversation.
Thank you for the great review, Marissa! We're so pleased to hear that you found all aspects of your evening to uphold 5 star standards. Looking forward to your next experience with us. Cheers!
Excellent food, loved the Coq au Vin especially. Friendly, professional service, good wine list and overall good value!
Thanks for the review, Grazer! We've got some wonderful and unique wine bottles to suit every guest, and some equally wonderful servers to open them for you! Our Coq au Vin is fairly new to the menu, so we're pleased to hear you're enjoying it. Come back soon - our menu is always changing!
I've been back twice in one week for the Coq au Vin - I literally dream about it! The kitchen was super accommodating with my super annoying dietary restrictions and the service is always professional and lovely.
Thanks for the fabulous review, Alana! Our Coq au Vin is definitely one of our most popular dishes on the menu right now. We do our best to be accommodating of everyone, and are so glad we could serve you something delicious that fits your dietary needs! Looking forward to your 3rd Coq au Vin visit.
My favourite Go to in Halifax. Always amazing food and service.
Johanna and her team delivered a wonderful dining experience. Our waiter was terrific, knowledgeable and accommodating. We will return. Thank you
Everything was lovely. Food was wonderful. We will return often.

Thanks so much for the review, Heather! We're glad to know the food and service managed to exceed your expectations! Our delicious menu has recently undergone some seasonal changes, and so far, so good - everyone seems to be loving it. Looking forward to your next visit!
The four of us all thought the food was great and the service outstanding. Will definitely go back!
Thank you so much for your great review! We look forward to having you back again soon. Cheers!
Always a great spot! Super food, great service, wonderful relaxed, slightly upscale atmosphere. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.

I’ve never had a bad experience. Always a pleasure.
Wow, thanks so much for your review, Grant! It's a pleasure on our end as well. Looking forward to your next visit!
I have eaten here many times and had never been disappointed. The staff is always welcoming and accommodating and the food is always creative and delicious.
Thanks for the stellar review, Linda! Our menu is always changing to reflect what is most fresh and in-season, so we're glad to know through it's many evolutions we consistently remain delicious. Big menu changes are coming soon, so keep an eye out!
Great restaurant. Love the food. Small and quaint. Not pretentious, which is so nice. Always end up going back!!!

Great food and great service!!
That's what we like to hear! Thanks for the review!
Everything we ordered was top notch. The whiskey shrimp are a must try.
Thank you for the great review! Hope to see you again soon!
Table seating was less than ideal, elbow to elbow at a small corner bench. Other than that it was a lovely place
Thanks for your review!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! A great dining experience!
We appreciate your review! So glad that you're a fan of our restaurant, and we look forward to having you by again soon!
Einrichtung recht einfach
danke für deine bewertung! hoffe dich wieder zu sehen!
Wonderful patio experience. Our service was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the Oyster and drinks Happy Hour. The salmon dinner was delicious. Highly recommend a visit to this West End neighbourhood gem.
Thanks for the fantastic review, Karen! Our daily Happy Hour drink deals and Buck-A-Shuck oysters are a big part of what makes us so popular with regulars and newcomers alike! Our menu is always changing to reflect what is freshest and in season, so we hope to see you in again soon to try the changes out. Cheers!
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.
Thank you so much for your fabulous review, Ulrich. We pride ourselves on excellent service, fresh, delicious food and creative drinks. We're so pleased to know that you found this to be the case for your visit! We greatly look forward to your next evening with us. Cheers!
We had the scallops, brussel sprouts, scallop and salmon tagliatelle, and salmon. We loved every bite.
Another wonderful experience at Eliot and Vine! I had been looking forward to trying this menu, and was not disappointed! The Brussel Sprouts are always incredible, and the Steak with Mushroom Risotto and the Salmon & Shrimp pasta were delicious! We will be back!
Thanks for the great review, Dawn! Our Tagliatelle pasta is handmade by our wonderful chef, and the seafood portion is always very generous. Our steak is local, which we find always makes a difference! We look forward to your next visit... maybe for our new menu? (It's coming soon!)
Delicious food and drinks. Wonderful service, friendly staff, great atmosphere
Thanks for the fabulous review, Lauren. We greatly look forward to your next visit! Cheers!
Lovely meal, ambience and service. Would return to this restaurant.
We look forward to your return! Thanks for the review.
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.
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!
I have been to a lot of restaurants over the years in various cities but this place is by far the most memorable. We had an amazing night full of laughter and fun. The next time we come back to Halifax this will be our primary date night location.
Thanks for the wonderful review, Justin! EV is Halifax's favourite restaurant for locals and tourists alike, and we're glad you felt the same! We can't wait for your next visit out here. Safe travels!
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.
Thanks for your review. We're glad our excellent staff team was able to solve your issue quickly and to your satisfaction. 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! Hope to see you again soon!
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.
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!
Everyone's food was great. People were friendly and atmosphere great. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Wow, thanks for the great review! The EV atmosphere is designed to be a trendy setting for any date night, friendly catch-up, family gathering, or celebration! We look forward to your next visit.
Very good service. Our waiter was very attentive.
Thanks for the review, Theresa! Our hardworking and talented staff team looks forward to serving you again on your next visit. Cheers!
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.
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!
Fantastic food and drinks and amazing servers! Love this little neighbourhood gem.
Thanks so much for your review! Our North End location is perfect for experiencing the trendiest side to Halifax. Can't wait to have you for dinner and drinks again soon!
Excellent food, service, ambience and location. A must visit in Halifax
So glad you enjoyed your experience dining with us. We look forward to having you back soon. Cheers, and thanks for the great review!
First time there. Food was delicious. Will be back!
We love making first-timers into regulars here at EV! We work to change our menu often enough to make sure each visit is a new, yet consistently wonderful dining experience. Thanks for the fabulous review!
This is always a fun place to eat. The menus doesn’t change too much but the food is very good. Service team is great under the able hand of Phil. It’s great to have a restaurant in the middle of a real neighborhood!
Thanks for the awesome review, Stew. We work to keep our menu fresh and try to make changes that reflect what's in-season. If you've been in often lately, and it's feeling like you've seen the same dishes, then get ready! This likely means things are going to start changing in the near future! Our talented chef and his excellent team are always cooking up the best. Hope to have you by again soon!
service, wine and food were great.
will come back.
nice selection of wine,
jacques ( Montreal )
Thanks for the review, Jacques! We have worked hard to curate a vast wine list, boasting local and imported wines of all types, and at many different price points. There is something for everyone to sip on at EV! Looking forward to your next visit here. Cheers!
