Nice atmosphere and friendly service.
I had the the rock shrimp as an appetizer and the miso black cod as an entree.
Both were very good.
I will definitely eat here again.
Location is (almost!) everything. Our table asst was terrific; separately, she volunteered 2b our wait asst bc no one else attended -- u decide!
We had an excellent meal, sitting on a lovely patio enjoying the sea breeze. It was made even better by the manager, Shelley, pitching in with her staff to ensure everything ran smoothly at every table. We will definitely come back next time we visit Halifax!
Food was fantastic , loved the Black Mamba and the Sea Smoke Sushi .. Outdoor setting was wonderful .
Way overpriced for the food. We had to wait 15 minutes to be offered a drink. Had 5 different servers. I am celiac and asked that all be gluten free. Mussels came with bread. Sushi was good, appetizers not so much. Wouldn’t return.
The food was very good, a bit more expensive but for the location was fair.
Sea Smoke has a great patio but the menu is limited and overpriced in my opinion. The food was ok but a little uninspired and I was disappointed with my cocktail, it sounded delicious on the menu but felt unrefined while I was drinking it. I am not interested in going back.
Service was slow although restaurant was not full.
Sushi was great however quantity of food for the price on other dishes was low
We are regulars to this wonderful new establishment! The staff are so warm and engaging and willing to help! The food is outstanding – best sushi in Halifax. The deck on the waterfront is so well decorated and cosy and totally the place to be!
Public washroom ? Come on !!!! Had to ask for service - was told it was " ... it is really busy ..."
The food was horrible, over priced and not fresh. Miso soup, salty thin dishwater, sushi and sashimi not fresh, sashimi platter was ugly, with fish hidden among piles of shreddered carrots. A hot dish of chicken stuffed with vegetables, was dry, badly seasoned plate reminiscent of bad airline food, for $32, geez. The topper was after a $165 dinner for two, the restroons had mo towels to dry your hands This restaurant needs a chef, needs to find better sources for Seafood ( i mean you cannot find fresh fish in Halifax?), and reduce their excessive prices.
The Ahi Tuna Maguro Tini and the Mussels are particularly fantastic... oh, and the ribs. All the food was creative and well thought out. The décor and setting manages to be stylish and relaxed at the same time. Great service - relaxed but thorough, not naggy, gave good suggestions.
Great fresh sushi with a wonderful view!
Best meal in Canada so far. Great shishimi and great service
The food was so good and our waiter was great as well!
A new favourite location!!
Good food and ambiance. Outdoor patio with heaters and blankets was nice. Only complaint is that the food took way too long to come and our server looked like she was run off her feet while others were standing around. It wasn’t that busy but took us 3 hours to get in and out.
As close to a 5 as you can get. Good food, great service, Riedel glasses an inspired wine list and a great view. Recommend highly.
The sushi was delicious 😋
The outdoor patio perfect
Unfortunately a few service issues with a new server ; however she will get better with experience
Also unfortunate the people at the table next to us we’re very loud!! Fortunately they left before us and we found some peace
The start of the meal was great but quickly went downhill. Our appies came and we were really enjoying them until our entrees showed up about 5 minutes later. We weren’t even halfway through. The protein portion of both our meals was yummy but all our sides were freezing. Cold mashed potato not very appetizing.
We were on our 50th wedding anniversary journey. This was our best meal in Halifax. The food was so fresh you would think they just surf casted to bring it to the plate. But what made it exceptional was our server Taylor. Her warmth and exuberance paired with her food and wine knowledge made it what I would hope for anyone on a special adventure.
Great menu combining sushi with other Asian inspired dishes. Excellent location right on the harbour, is good for people watching during the summer when the boardwalk is busy.
Excellent quality in creative sushi. The views sitting on the waterfront boardwalk are wonderful. Great for tourists.
We were quite excited to try this restaurant after following them on Social Media for a while. The location is great, the ambiance is lovely, the view can't be beat. Our server seemed lovely, however was clearly overtasked and was not able to provide the level of service you would expect - we waited a long time to order, she didn't come back to check on our meal, or even drinks. We actually got water from the bar twice and were not able to order any additional beer/wine. The sushi rolls were high quality, delicious, and as described in the menu - top notch. The braised back ribs were actually side ribs, we addressed this with the server but she just said she wasn't sure and brushed it off. This restaurant has a lot of great features but I'd really see no reason to return due to the lack of service - complete unacceptable when you consider the prices, the alternatives available nearby, and then fact their lowest recommended tip is 18%!
Absolutely amazing food and service
Can’t waut to return
Great food, great atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
Server was very slow with drinks !
Very nice atmosphere. Had sushi and lobster sliders to start. They were delicious. Then i had surf n turf, which was amazing! I died. My friends both had lobster stuffed halibut. They really enjoyed it. The service was slow, even though the restaurant wasn't busy. They also were limited in their beer choices.
The food was amazing. We had a bunch of Maki Rolls and sashimi to share. Our server seemed new to the menu but he went above and beyond to make sure our dining experience was a great one.
Everyone really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our waitress was amazing. Without a doubt, we all had an awesome time and we look forward to coming back again.
We went for lunch on Mother’s Day and the restaurant was completely empty. The food and service were both good but a little overpriced.
The service was good, the oysters were superb. The decor is dated and had an older feel. I expected it to be fresher given the restaurant is recently renovated. The seating was not comfortable.
This was our first visit to Sea Smoke and overall it was quite good. We frequent downtown Halifax and various other restaurants and we both ordered the stuffed haddock. The presentation was great, however, both my wife and felt there was not enough potato severed wtih the dish. We both felt it should have come with another 50% amount of potato in order to better pair with the haddock.
This was a huge disappointment. We arrived and ordered beer and were told their gas lines were down so no beer available. We ordered wine instead (Merlot) and were brought some kind of white wine. My husband ordered the lobster platter and was told they were out of lobster, so he had to choose something else. When our meals arrived mine had a hair in it. While we were comped for my meal with the hair, we still had a $95 bill for my husbands (second choice) meal and two glasses of (the wrong kind of) wine (when we actually wanted beer).
We sat with dirty plates on our table for a long time despite it not being busy, always had to ask for our water to be refilled, steaks were over done for our taste, daughter’s burger wasn’t prepared how she had ordered it.
Went there for the Burger Week burger. Great food, great service, nice ambiance. Will definitely be going again!
Amazing seafood as expected. Atmosphere is wonderful, and the staff are outstanding. I still tip my hat to the Sushi chef. Will come back again!
The sushj is great! A little pricey, but if you’re willing to pay, its very good food, and great views!
Really wonderful experience, and great to see Hannah in her new work place.
Would recommend the sushi only. Had the cod, it was ok, mushroom risotto was just ok, no real taste and was dry for 35.00 . The drinks were tasty. Our server was good and very nice.
