Elliot and Vine is a modern Halifax restaurant with a European inspired menu. The food was generally underwhelming and lacked refinement.More

A great find. Sat outside the first night and loved it so we booked for the next night too. Try the charcuterie appetizer ($28 gets you a bottle house wine too!) and then add to that start with whatever.More

We loved our evening here. I had requested a quiet table, off to the side if possible, and they gave us a lovely spot, exactly what I hoped for. It was also nice to visit a restaurant that was part of a neighbourhood, not just...one of many downtown. Our server Jill was exceptional. Her service was prompt and attentive but not intrusive. She was personable and funny and never overstayed her welcome. All of our food was good. This is exactly what you hope for when visiting a restaurant for the first time!More

E&V has a relaxed but trendy vibe. Service was amazing, the food and wine selection was so good. Highly recommend the Fried Brussel Sprouts and the Scallop and Salmon Tagliatelle which had fresh pasta and so much seafood it was hard to not want to...lick the bowl! Huge compliments to the chef!

I went to this restaurant for evening meals but also hosted my small wedding there. The food is delicious and the portions are just the right size. They are so accommodating and caring.
