We sat by the window overlooking the river. The view was beautiful and the food was delicious. We had sushi, it was really good, the staff was nice and the service was fast. Would recommend for sure

This is my 5th time here since finally trying this restaurant late August. They haven't failed me, except for this visit; my poké bowl was drenched in mayo and sauces, the waiter forgot to bring the miso soup that accompanied it, and he barely checked up on me and my date. It was saddening because I brought my date here with high expectations, boasting how great it was. Meh. Maybe I'll give this place a break until the summer.

Great spot to sit outside along the Halifax waterfront. The fire tables keep things at a comfortable temperature. We went inside to eat. The lobster roll and sweet potato roll were delicious. My spouse enjoyed his seafood chowder as well.

Sea Smoke is my favourite restaurant in Halifax and I go as often as I can. Great service, ambiance and food. I have to say though last night the food wasn’t as good as meals in the past. I’m sure next time I go it will be perfect again, as always.

Great place to have nice wine and some food right by the ocean. Fantastic views and friendly service. Fire pits on the patio are a nice touch. Not all items on the menu are as good as the others, but sashimi was fresh and delicious.

Although the staff were very polite and helpful they could use more servers on the floor.

Excellent service and food. Waiter made great recommendations and took the time to explain the menu. Service was quick. It is an extensive menu with various price points you could really splurge or have a more economical meal. Wait staff and hostess were very personable…. Including the hostess running down the waterfront after me to give back my forgotten phone which I greatly appreciated!

Started with the sea smoke sharing board and it was great for three of us as a starter. Had the seafood skillet for a main course and it was delicious with lots of variety.

We had a fantastic time at Sea smoke. We had a fire table on the patio over looking the Halifax harbour. It was a lovely atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff and delicious food. There was no rush for us to leave, they seemed genuinely happy to be of service.

Was very upset with the slow service and when our food came it was cold .
Our waiter did not come back to check on how everything was tasting and we had the wrong appetizer arrive .
Don’t think I would go back there again for the price we ended up paying .

Delicious meal! Sushi was so good. Our servers recommendations for the rock shrimp appetizer and the black mamba sushi were spot on. They were both divine and the rest was really good too. Great happy hour specials to start our evening.

Gorgeous sunset dinner. Delicious meal options. Sat outside at fire pit tables. I found the table part a little too narrow and close to the fire for total comfort.

The restaurant was nicely decorated, would have liked to be on the patio but too windy. Drinks were presented beautifully and tasted wonderful. Food presentation was also quite lovely but my haddock was a little dry. Overall a nice place to go.

My friends, and I were excited to try Sea Smoke for the first time. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with our overall experience. Each of us ordered several different items to try and out of all of them, only one dish was good. For a restaurant that serves asian cuisine, missed the mark completely. The sushi was very salty, and did not have a nice presentation. Majority of the food was tasteless, and the ingredients tasted cheap.

Everything we had had was simply delicious. The apps were great.
Our only constructive criticism was the amount of sauces on our Tiger Lily and Black Mumba rolls. I felt the amount masked the flavour of the rolls.
I will definitely be back however as the food is wonderful.
