    Food was elegant and delicious and the service was amazing!!! Duck, squash, wild boar and venison are highly recommended! Oscar was our server and he made our experience and our overall evening wonderful. He is an absolute joy!

    We went to Gio because my 29 year old son had never been there. My wife and I hadn’t been for several years. Our experience was incredible on all fronts and the variety and quality of food superb. We will be back.

    Our server was very good but I would not recommend this restaurant. I ordered the striploin which may have been 4oz of meat and I was hungry when I left. My spouse had the Red Drum which is bass and the same thing but gluten free so they put these dried up beans on the plate that were not edible. Not a good value here

    Gio went above and beyond to cater to my mom’s gluten allergy. She loved the fish and chips made with sparkling water instead of beer. Everyone left full and happy. My favourite restaurant in Halifax!

    I had not been to Gio in 4+ years. I had read the reviews lately which were really good. So, we decided to give it another try. I will certainly be back as the food and service were both very good. We had the Red Drum, Shrimp and Scallops and Cornish Hen. All were very good. The restaurant was 2/3rd’s full and the layout allows you to hear your table’s conversation. Gio is a great night out downtown. Would recommend.

    Fine dining, in an elegant setting with pleasant, knowledgeable staff. An ideal weekend would be dinner at Gio, show at the ScotiaBank Centre and overnight at the Prince George (parking included if you have dinner at Gio). Tasty and imaginative cocktail menu and incredible dinner items. Try the foie gras!

    I ate here back in December for only the second time ever, and have been thinking about my meal ever since. And this visit confirmed my love for this restaurant. The food was outstanding. It is rare to find a restaurant that makes me think "wow" with every bite. The service was also top notch. I am already looking forward to my next visit, and would say that this is one of the best restaurants on Halifax. If you haven't tried it, treat yourself and get there ASAP.

    Wife and I ate dinner here last night and it was the best meal of our lives We started with oysters, mixed green salad with nuts and goat cheese and a beet medley. My main was the Cornish hen - it Was cooked a perfection with a sticky coding making the outer skin delicious sauce over top to dip was incredible. She had the strip loin with barley. The steak was charred to perfection cut in the centre and serve so you can see your choice of crookedness. It was accompanied with a short rib, croquette, and the barley was also delicious. Even the coffee was picture worthy this place is top shelf atmosphere was great. Service was great. Five star for sure. I’ve travelled some and this is world class
