The staff here were super friendly and accomodating despite many of the guests being over 45min late. We managed to find a different seat and still got to enjoy our very delicious meal. Price was acceptable, but expensive all the same.

Overall, experience was good. Service was slightly lacking, we ordered an appetizer but the server didn't bring small individual plates for us. Decor in the restaurant is slightly dated and shoddy looking. Food was great though!

This is my favourite place to eat when I visit Halifax. I have kidney disease and high sodium foods make me feel ill, and eating here makes my whole body feel good and healthy. Everything on the menu is delicious and I’ve never had a bad experience here.

Our server (named Kyle, I believe) was great. Our party ordered the Fishcake and Guacamole appetizers. The fish cakes were good but the Guacamole was missable. We had the Braised Beef, Sesame Haddock and Lentil Burger entrees. I think we would recommend all of three dishes and portions were fair. We did feel that while most of the food we ordered was good it did need to be seasoned more generously. We made ample use of the salt and pepper shakers on the table.

Great service and food. Good selection of local craft beers. Our server went above and beyond. Looking forward to our next time there. Great place to eat before attending the Neptune Theatre.

Love this restaurant! Great food, great drink--healthy ingredients prepared well. Better menu than just about any other Halifax restaurant and the price was better than most. Happy to see your efforts toward sustainable living. Great service from really nice, knowledgeable, personable staff. We're visiting Halifax, and ate there 2 times during our stay. Wish we could take this restaurant home with us! Thank you for being a highlight of our stay. We love Halifax and hope to return again soon. When we do return, we will be sure to come back again!

We were very impressed how prepared they were for food allergies. There was a binder that the server just grabbed, and then depend upon your allergy, they could easily recommend which dishes on the menu were safe for you. We were impressed.

There was a large very loud group who came in while we were eating. They were quite boisterous and therefore we left as soon as our meals were over.

Delicious, quaint, healthy, and not-so-healthy if you’re in the mood. This place is perfect for lunch!
