Location and contact

Eliot & Vine is a casual dining restaurant in the North end of Halifax. Our main dining room features banquette window seating, a marble bar, and a cozy atmosphere. The semi-private Frolic Room is great for more intimate evenings, with an exquisite mural painted on the walls by watercolour artist Jean Bradbury. In the summer, sit on our outdoor patio and watch the chefs work their magic in the kitchen through our open garage door. We’re the perfect spot for date nights, birthday and anniversary celebrations, or your next office party. Our menu changes almost daily, featuring local and in-season ingredients in dishes inspired from around the globe. We are happy to accommodate special requests

What a great spot! From start to finish, everything was top notch. We had the artichoke flatbread as an appetizer, then the lamb shank and the pasta de maiale for mains. Everything was flavourful and beautiful plated. We shared the "chomeur" for dessert and it...More

We had great service and nice food. The dessert menu was a bit underwhelming and we were disappointed that my first 2 selections for entrees were unavailable. The atmosphere is pleasant.

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening and enjoyed the experience thoroughly. It's so good to have dining options that don't involve battling downtown Halifax traffic and parking. But more than that the food, service and decor are first class. We shared a naan...More
