The seat of our booth had a huge tear in it with a gaping hole. The table had not been cleaned as there was food spread about on the surface. My wife’s glass of sparkling wine was flat, not sparkling at all. The beer as...usual was great. Standards seem to be slipping.More

Was in Halifax for some work and on the hunt for some good plant based options and Gahan House definitely delivers! They even have an entire menu just for plant based options! I am in love! It is a great spot, I felt comfortable dining...on my own, easy for pickup orders and I highly recommend the Crispy Cauliflower Chickpea Bowl! Will definitely be back next time I am in town!More

Being able to spend time at the Gahan House with friends and family was great, but to have such a wonderful server as Tanner, made the evening even better. Tanner handled our 8-person order without any trouble. He was comfortable and confident, chatted with all...ages of our party with ease, checked in on our tables with perfect timing, and made us all feel welcome. I recommend a night out at The Gahan House. And if possible, sit in Tanner’s section!More

Reservations for 4 adults, 4 youth, on a busy Saturday evening of March break 2022…the tables were ready on arrival, the service staff were AMAZING, the atmosphere was energetic with a happy vibe, and the food was delish. Even our 4 teens noticed how fantastic...the staff were, and commended them, which speaks volumes! “Make sure you leave a good tip, Mom!”. Tanner-keep up the great work! Expectations exceeded-highly recommend:)More

This our first time here. The food was really good . I had chicken pasta and we shared calamari. So delicious. We shared a bottle of wine and the prices were much lower than other restaurants. The waitress was very friendly.

Great location with available indoor parking. Very good food. Service was initially very slow - took 15 minutes for a server to attend our table. All dishes were very tasty. Would recommend.

The evening began nice, drinks were brought promptly and service was friendly. Things went downhill after that. We sat for 20 minutes with empty drinks and no food order taken. We tried ordering through another server and were ignored. It seemed our server was actively...trying to ignore us. Avoiding eye contact and coming over at all. When food finally was ordered it had clearly been sitting under the heat lamp as the sauce had coagulated and the calamari was hard and rubbery. The chowder had a thick layer of sludge on top. We had to eat without drinks as our second order didn’t come until we wanted to pay. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting, and I even saw a server come in and sign the ‘cleaning chart’ and then leave - leaving it dirty. Our server apologized for the slow service but it would’ve been nice to know they were understaffed at the beginning. We won’t be back.More
