    One of our favourite restaurants in Halifax for the combination of food, service and ambience. Absolutely love the place and our waiter last night was outstanding! Celebrated our anniversary and it was nice to get a complimentary glass of bubbly each as a token to mark the occasion.

    We had read excellent reviews of the Press Gang so my expectations were high. Our meal was certainly delicious and beautiful, and the service was good. It was not outstanding, but good.

    The food, drinks and service was absolutely outstanding! I had the beef tenderloin and my husband had the lamb and they were cooked to perfection! You need to make reservations and eat here! Amazing!

    We had a wonderful time and enjoyed “the drill” not rushed at all and left to ourselves which was nice to for once not be asked if everything is ok when I have a mouth full of food- a mark of very observant service

    This is the s*+t. From the bartender (and exec chef)!Brian to our server Richard, the food, the service, and the atmosphere were so great. Seriously, you don’t want to miss this place. We had the lobster and the halibut and the cheesecake and crème brûlée, pick anything it will be exceptional. Do not hesitate, if you can get a reservation take it!
