I've eaten in a lot of places in Halifax, and was not expecting a nice place IN a hotel like this. The restaurant was very well staffed, quiet and efficient, and yet friendly, and the selection quite good. She had salmon, done perfectly and beautifully presented. I had a Reuben that was wonderful, and a side Greek salad to boot... More

Decided to check out this place after many years and incarnations. Pleasantly surprised in every way. Nicely decorated, great view, and delicious food! Service was great and quick. TIP: there is parking around the rear, and you can enter via the back dorr and up the stairs through the lobby. Be sure to say hello to the resident Chocolate Lab... More

I have been here twice now for supper and loved it both times. It's unexpectedly lovely. The decor is well done. There's a beautiful view of the lake. The food is all delicious and beautifully presented. The menu has a great variety. The service is fast & friendly. I can't wait to go back to try the brunch.

We were staying at the hotel for a couple of days and after a long day of personal appointments in town who wants to drive anywhere for a meal? The dining room was large, well lit, but not very atmospheric, maybe needs to be busier to give it some feeling. Staff was attentive, polite and efficient. Menu options for dinner... More

This restaurant offers a take away service for the hotel (in which it is situated) instead of room service. We ordered a simple hamburger and fries. It was almost inedible. Had we been in the restaurant instead of in our room we would have certainly sent it back.
