    As usual the food and service was excellent. However the entertainment was super loud so could not carry on conversation at the table. That was disappointing.

    Such a great spot. Our server (also tending bar) kept an eye on us and we never had to wait long between rounds. It’s been a while since I have been there and I feel the food was not as good as my memory, but it’s such a great vibe I will always find my way back.

    Good service. Didnt eat but have eaten there before and food is good pub food with an original twist. NYE band was the house band I think, they were ok but played some Nova Scotia goodies that they all play. Crowd is older. Beer is cold. Price is average level. Good value overall, we had fun.

    We arrived and they had no record of our reservation - we had my mom in a wheelchair and they made little effort to accommodate us - is this Open Table’s issue or the Triangle?

    Food was better than expected and affordable. The cranberry mustard salad dressing was so good, I will have it again. We upped our table numbers and that meant we couldn't all sit together but it was okay.

    The hostess couldn’t find our reservation. She said that reservations made within two hours didn’t show up for her. We were seated at the extreme rear of the facility. We ordred our beer and it arrived flat. We brought it to the server’s attention and she said ‘ that’s the way it is’. We sent it back and ordered a different beer and it was better. The lamb burger was good. The bill came and there was no consideration for the flat beer. Didn’t feel like our patronage was appreciated.

    The Old Triangle is one of our “go to” restaurants in downtown Halifax. You can usually count on good food & service. I was a bit disappointed in our meal on Friday, September 8 at lunch as the pan fried haddock, which is usually succulent, was overbooked and dry. An off day for the kitchen.

    We booked after looking at the menu online … which has Not been updated. Menu no longer had the seafood linguine for $20 .. it wasn’t available at all! We did enjoy our meals though. I had the lobster & shrimp crepes which were to die for!! Mmmmm. It was my brothers birthday & we had picked up a cake at Sobeys grocery store to have after our meal. Well, at first there was a problem with food being brought in - we were asked if we had a receipt to show Incase a food inspector came .. then we were told there was a $2 plate fee for each person. We decided to just take the cake back to our hotel room.

    We really enjoyed our visit to the Old Triangle. Went specifically to listen to the music of Gordie Tucker and Laura Watson who were outstanding, We ordered the margareta pizza which was very good. Have eaten here before and have never been disappointed in the food. Would highly recommend this restauant to anyone looking for good food in a pub environment.

    We had a great experience. Food was great and the service was excellent. We did find the pub loud, but it's to be expected in a pub, so not really off putting. It is definitely not a place for anyone with mobility issues. The trek to the washroom included two sets of difficult to navigate stairs.

    Had brunch here on a Saturday. It was pretty quiet but a waitress said it was slower than normal with no cruise ships in, so your day may vary. Excellent Irish breakfast with a beer flight, exactly what I was looking for. Service was friendly and quick. Great Irish pub ambience.
