Service: “we have a nice shiraz that would go well with the beef” and that showed up on the bill as 21.00 for a stated 5.5 oz pour. Nice indeed. Nice to know in advance it was in the steeper range–21.00 for a GLASS of wine in Halifax is not a “nice shiraz”.
Bill presented before dessert was finished. A pet peeve of mine, and a lost opportunity for a specialty coffee sale. Both dinners on one bill without asking if it was together or separate. Another peeve.
Music–too loud, a complaint I’ve heard before about this restaurant; we ended up yelling at each other.
Nitpick: plate rims are pale blue. Possibly the most unappetizing colour ever seen on dishware. Purely personal preference though.
Final verdict? Flawless food, flawed service. Expensive. Which I probably would not have minded without the service missteps.
