Good food yet not the best service

My wife and daughter and I arrived there half an hour before closing and were not received very well, as if we were coming in late! We were given a full menu yet were told we could only order a few select items. I have been to many restaurants and this is the first time I have ever seen this!... read more

This evening we used a Groupon to visit Café 101 in Dartmouth. We were greeted promptly by a very amiable server who brought warm biscuits while we waited for our meals. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. I had the butter chicken on naan, which was excellent, as was the mushroom soup that came with it. As I am... More

Cafe 101 is the restaurant of the Holiday Inn Harbourview. It is below average for a HI restaurant in my view. I ate breakfast there each day as part of my package and the service and food was inconsistent. There is the buffet if there are enough people staying in the hotel or a limited menu (about 8 things) on... More

Ate breakfast and dinner here. Breakfast was a buffet with usual fare; eggs, bacon, toast, cereal, and fruit. It was quick and hot. Ate dinner here. Good selection and was very tasty. Didn't get my steak right the first time but when it came back it was very good. The restaurant looks out to the pool area.

The atmosphere is very hotel restaurant basic, but the food was good and creative. Wish there was a decent view of the Halifax waterfront from the restaurant. Service was okay, maybe a tad rough around the edges.

the service and the food is top notch and the service is great. Really like the Lunch Menu the soup and sandwich deal of the day for less than $10.00. The place is busy but never crowded so you can get in and out and back to work quickly. Good place for doing some business over lunch. Nice for romantic... More
