    I was dining alone so booked at the bar, expecting some interaction with a good bartender. The bartender was very standoffish and, while he provided perfectly adequate service, was not as engaging as I would expect for a restaurant of this calibre that has bar seating.

    Our second time here and it won’t be the last! So happy that our local friends introduced us to this place. It really is the best sushi we’ve had in the Maritimes so far. However, it’s more than just sushi. The other dishes we’ve had are delectable! The service is fantastic and it has a great view of the boardwalk. This will definitely be one of our go-to places every time we visit Halifax!

    The beef tataki was served over cooked , we returned it and didn't ask for a second, the second wasn't any better we said we didn't want it. They still charged us for the it although it was completely uneaten. They forgot our sashimi order and the manager doesn't know anything about customer service. The food was so so but not worth going back

    Generally say it's fine as a restaurant in tourist attractions area. But if considering a 4-star rating restaurant, this is far away. Seafood tower is market price so supposed to be fresh, But not. Like frozen fishes and lobster that you can buy in freezing zone of those 24 hours small grocery store. Cocktail very normal, no comment. Chowder and salad are good, But didn't expect those are the best part in this meal hahah. Service is ok. Just a very average or below average place.

    Great service, attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable server . Sticky pork ribs were fall off the bone tender and a fabulous sauce. The seafood skillet was well seasoned, beautifully presented but a bit skimpy on the quantity. Nice ambiance, inviting and comfortable, I will return.

    This was our first time to Sea Smoke. We anticipated coming in and getting some starters and sushi but then seen they had the dine around menu on for $50. We both decided to go with this. Starters we got the tuna crispy rice and the crispy spring rolls both were good but I did find the coconut flavour strong in the crispy rice. For entrees we got the beef tenderloin and the sushi combo. The sushi was the best sushi I have ever eaten I’m still thinking about it. The beef tenderloin was good. The dessert was a chocolate mousse with a coconut whip cream. It was good I’m just not a fan of coconut so wasn’t my favorite dessert. We enjoyed the service and the atmosphere and believe it would be an amazing spot in the summer with the decks and fire tables. We will definitely be back!!

    My food was excellent but my partner's sushi didn't taste fresh and his two of his lamb lollipops were undercooked while the other two were overcooked. Not sure how that happens.. There was also a family with two small, very loud children sat right next to us, when there were other open tables and we were trying to have a date. Wasn't exactly the atmosphere I was expecting for an almost $200 bill.

    Delicious food, great ambiance! I ordered the vegan sushi and wontons. 10/10. For dessert I had the raspberry mousse. I expected it to be sweet but it was a perfect blend of sweet and citrus flavours. I will definitely come back to eat here.

    Absolutely best dining experience we have had in ages. The whole evening was fantastic. A knowledgeable and friendly waitress. Every course delightfully prepared and well presented. Cooked to perfection. Accompanied by wine from the nearby Bishops Cellar that was outstanding. The pricing for this exquisite meal was very reasonable and the restaurant itself is so relaxed, well appointed and a view second to none. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

    Not sure if it was because it was Valentine’s Day and busy, or always, but service was not great. Nor was the seating. We booked a reservation mid January and were sat at a very small table against small wall near the door like an after thought, which was pretty disappointing. Every other seat in the place looked great. Server was there when we were given the menu, but we needed a minute to look for drinks, said she’d be back, but wasn’t. We waited an exceptionally long time to get drinks; So long my husband went to the bar and got them himself. Server did redeem herself and was fairly attentive afterwards, but I did have higher expectations of a higher end restaurant. Food and drinks were extremely good, but definitely paying for location and atmosphere.

    We were seated very close to another couple, so sadly not much privacy to talk. Food was good and service was quick. Every time we come here there seems to be something on the desert menu they don’t have, and it’s already a very small menu.

    If you have a shellfish allergy do not go here. Having a shellfish allergic reaction after eating selections containing no shellfish at this establishment the restaurant was contacted to identify this issue and they have not responded. This lack of action is very disappointing.
