From the friendly hello when you walk in, to the "come again" at the end of the night, dining at Eliot & Vine is always a reason to visit again. The food is fantastic, and there is always someone to help you pick the best...wine. Eliot & Vine is in my neighbourhood, and the choice of friends from other corners of Halifax and visitors from across Nova Scotia.More

Great food, great service and great atmosphere! I had the duck crepes with the beet salad and both were delicious!

What drew us to this place was the happy hour special which consists of $6 beer/wine/bubbles. The oysters are advertised as a buck a shuck; but you can only get a max of eight if you order food from the menu. Overall, service was great...and super friendly. Portions are on the small side; prices are on the higher side; however, food was good. A late lunch/early dinner will run you about $100 plus depending how much you drink.More

This was definitely a 5/5 experience. The restaurant was a little of the beaten path but well worth the cab ride if visiting from out of town. I had the lamb and my wife had the pork tenderloin.

The restaurant was rated well and we went there on that basis. There was a less than friendly welcome. Only one menu for a party of two. Questions about wine selection answered with: don’t know… out of my price range! Very limited choice of wines...by the glass. The food was good…. Thank goodness… although rather slow to arrive. Mainly my feeling was that the lack of interest or care by our server spoiled what could have been a really nice experience. So if you decide to go there…. Don’t expect much from the service but hopefully you will have a nice meal!More

This was our first full meal at this restaurant. The food was lovely; the tuna appetizer was outstanding, with a wonderful mix of textures and flavours. The gnocchi were all like little delicate pillows, and delicious. Alex, our server, was a rock star. Excellent service,...personal and seamless, and he always has a smile. My only suggestion has to do with the wine. It was a very hot day, and the windows were open so the air conditioning wasn't that noticeable, making the restaurant quite hot too. In a situation like this, the wine needs to be kept in a cooler spot, otherwise the taste is affected. Even red wines aren't meant to be served at temperatures in the mid 20s. Proper storage is needed.More

Fantastic experience here! Came for their happy hour and enjoyed $1 oysters with our order of a charcuterie board. Limited selection of wine and beer was available for $6 for happy hour.

We try to visit for lunch at least three or four times a year but Covid has intervened. The food is always first class and the staff are exceptionally accommodating. When we go for lunch we usually order 3 or 4 choices to share which...gives one a tapas experience. If you order a bottle of wine but do not finish it you can have it sealed to take with you. A well run establishment like all the Bertossi group.More
