    This is easily my favourite restaurant in Halifax. Delicious sushi, the steak wasnt overcooked, and the cocktails were perfect. We are also quite picky about our calamari but seasmokes passed with flying colours. We were on the patio this time and the propane fires in the center of each table give off enough heat that we were all comfortable.

    It was an adequate experience. Service was inattentive, but given the hiring challenges, I can understand (e.g. soy sauce is almost always accompanies sushi, unless it’s explicitly seasoned by the sushi chef but we had to flag down someone to get it for our rolls). Rice was overdone on the rolls and not seasoned properly unfortunately. The spicy scallops were done quite well and if you love spice like me, definitely get them.

    Not a fan of the interior décor, only two bathrooms so there can be lines going out into the dining area which is kind of silly. Food was great, service was a little slow but good. Beer is way over priced. Still had a good time but probably wont go back anytime soon.

    The food was good. The seating: there are tables on the patio next to the public washrooms - with aroma and traffic. Other sitting there: high top and regular tables inside, low height and standard hight tables outside. Some of the tables inside have an ocean view. There is one table inside with the view of mops and brooms in a bucket at a staff kitchen door. You may also sit in a cold air conditioning and draft. Even though we had a reservation, we were not offered any of the nice tables. I guess just try to arrange in advance which table you want. The food - calamari. steak, lobster, halibut. drinks - were good. I think most people come for rolls, we have not tried them.

    The restaurant was outstanding for a night out. If you’re looking for a place to spend the evening this is the restaurant to go. Service was a little slow, so don’t expect to be in out an quickly or if you’re in a hurry. However, our server was exceptional and the food is out of this world.

    We were seated and ignored for 30 minutes until my husband tracked down a manager. We were offered a free drink. We ordered a cocktail and food. The cocktails arrived and then we waited another 30 minutes for food. The waitress did not stop at our table once to check on us. When the food finally arrived it was pedestrian at best. The beef tataki was not beef tataki. It was stewed lumps of beef covered in overly sweet sauce. To add insult to injury when the bill arrived the cocktail had not been comped and the payment system was set with a minimum 18% tip. What a waste of a night out. Will not be back and will tell everyone I know to avoid the place like the plague

    Service was not related to server he was very nice, unfortunately the organization of the restaurant was poor. We waited 30mins for water because of a table mix up and then took over an hour after that to receive our starters and an extra 20 mins for main dish.

    Our waitress was amazing but it was very cold in the restaurant and had to wrap in blankets inside. Food was very slow and one skillet came out burnt but was remade quickly. Food was delicious! Kitchen needs to be more efficient.

    It doesn't appear that they looked at the notes on our reservation. We made a reservation for two at 5:45 and we weren't seated until 6:15, and didn't get to order until 6:30. My steak was overcooked when it finally arrived and had to wait nearly 20 minutes for this to be replaced. After we ate it took about another 15 minutes for someone to come by with a bill. This put me late for our plans after dinner.

    Food was not good, service was terrible. Dirty plates left on our table. Sushi tasted like grocery store, stale sushi. Restaurant was way too crowded. Not a good experience at all. We won’t be going back.

    I liked the location of the restaurant - and having fire tables and a blanket was nice. Unfortunately, the server was very busy and it was hard to get their attention (which was not the server's fault; the restaurant was FULL). We were a party of two and it felt like other tables with bigger parties were prioritized in terms of service... The appetizer I ordered was very good but the soba I ordered was a little bland and not what I expected.
