The hostess could not offer us a table without a reservation, even though we saw many open ones. The manager actually suggested we try "somewhere else". We did.
We visited in April 2011 after finding this restaurant on "you tube" we had a very good meal. The service was superb also

It was recommended to us by a friend who was a local. We had great service from our hilarious waitress Julie. We ordered from the grill bar because the other menu was just out of the question (price wise). My friends all enjoyed their food and I personally got $4 Caesar and the lobster barigoule. Very delicious, lobster was so... More

Came here for dinner with the family and we were all pleased with our meals. This restaurant is definitely one of the high end restaurants in town. It's in a good location in downtown Halifax on Argyle St., just down the street from the Metro Center and near the World Trade & Convention Center and City Hall. Service is good,... More

There are perhaps four top drawer restaurants in this town. Five Fisherman is the one for proper service and the best value for money at the high end range without a doubt.

I was at the Five fishermen on wednesday and I have to say that I was looking forward to this meal, as I use to visit this restaurant frequently a few years ago, but I hadn't visited it in a long time. As usual the setting was beautiful, the greeting was perfect, a young man came to us very promptly... More

This was my second visit, the first visit for my husband. He was not disappointed. Fantastic service, food and wine selection! Superb seafood selections. Oysters galore. Easy to get too, great downtown location. Relaxed, pleasant cozy atmosphere. Great for enjoying a delicious quiet dinner. Hope to be back again. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Halifax.

We were here in 2006 with family and enjoyed the food and service then ... this time (Oct 2013) was no different. In fact, Matt (our bartender/server/storyteller) was professional, attentive and knowledgeable. He never missed a beat serving us at the bar and tending to the other patrons and staff. When someone enjoys their job it shows and is a... More

We met up with friends in Halifax and were there one night. This restaurant was within easy walking of our hotel, and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was really nice and we all enjoyed our food. I would return in a heartbeat. It was cozy too which was a pleasant change for us.
