There is bar seating as well when the restaurant is full. We had mussels to share as a starter. The garlic crostini on the side... More

We went to this restaurant on our first night in Halifax at the suggestion of a friend. Great experience. Do not take reservations but we were there around 5 pm and had lots of options where to sit. We decided to sit at front of restaurant by the window. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We each tried a... More

EDNA is such a charming little spot with great service and outstanding eats. If you're in Halifax, I would highly recommend for brunch or dinner... or both.

Food was excellent. Had the mussels and the perogies. Was nice to have something different for a change. Nice atmosphere and service was amazing.

Went for brunch with friends , had a line up but was a Saturday and was seated within 10 minutes. While in line they offer you coffee as well which was nice. Had the eggs benny on a potato latke instead of a biscuit and it was AMAZING! ! Would definitely go back and recommend to others .

I have been here a few times, always great food and atmosphere! Their menu should change a bit more frequently, and maybe a few more options.

Food was spot on. Really. Rare to find a place where everything was cooked perfect and tasted great. Thank you for the... More

Visited for brunch and visited again for dinner because the atmosphere, service, and meal was so great. Highly recommended. If there is a line, no problem to put your name on the list and grab a coffee or a drink at a nearby spot while you wait!

My husband and I have eaten here numerous times (brunch and dinner) and every time the food and service is top notch. They don't take reservations but leave your name at reception and hop across the street for a drink while your table gets ready. A true gem in the neighborhood.

Been going here for years, the menu changes regularly but the food is always prepared fresh, with an interesting twist on many dishes. This month the perogies, beef carpaccio, and the apple fritters are the stand-outs. With so many delicious options sharing is advised so you can taste more. Atmosphere is casual and fun, sitting at the bar is always... More
