    I love it here. I do however wish there were more little nibbles with drinks. Nuts, olives, pickled vegetables, something like that.

    The food was excellent. We had a variety of plates and they were all great. I finished with the donut which I would get over and over again if I lived in Halifax. Our first server gave off volatile vibes the moment we walked in — she handed us off to somebody else, who was pleasant. The choice in music (a top 40 rap playlist?) was heinous for a 6:00pm seating. The couple seated beside us agreed.

    The food was outstanding and we loved it. The server seemed to have a bit of an attitude when I asked questions about what some of the ingredients were. The wine list doesn't have a great selection and the bottle mark up is huge. Still, if you're prepared to splash out on a fancy meal, this restaurant was wonderful, food was absolutely fantastic, and we'd definitely go back.

    Great food, drinks and location. Only complaint would be the server didn't note portion size and it was on the smaller side for an appetizer. It was delicious just wasn't a shareable size.

    Craicing’ food, pricey, but worth it. Service was great, had a very genuine and honestly happy server. They must treat their staff well. As i was made to feel like Don Giovanni, especially when one considers the Egyptian architecture art deco Surroundings
