After a few visits, I can only proclaim how delicious the food is at Gio. It is a favorite for my colleagues and I during the lunch hour. Even with the occasional menu change, it is never disappointing. The staff are wonderfully inviting and they are tremendously accommodating to my Gluten allergy. I certainly would recommend it, just as much... More

When do rain and late arrival spell good experience? When they combine to cause you to pick this restaurant. We had arrived in town fairly late with no preconceived idea for dinner, and no reservations. We were staying in the hotel and decided to eat here instead of venturing out in the rain. We were welcomed and seated immediately in... More

What a great atmosphere and experience! Was there a couple of nights ago and it did not disappoint. Jessica our server was phenomenal. From providing excellent service to great recommendations. The SeaBass was a delight. A definite visit when in Halifax. One of the best meals I have had.

We went with another couple and were amazed from beginning the service and food was incredible the butter poached lobster was cooked perfectly and prefer shelled so no mess. The catfish tostadas left me wanting more. My elk tenderloin was to say we'll worth the money. I definitely know why this is so highly rated

My wife, daughter and I had an excellent meal at Gio's, and we would definitely come back. They rolled out a new menu the day we dined their and everything was spot on. The interior is attractive and somewhat modern with some wonderful glass sculptures. Our waitress was knowledgable and very helpful. She make several suggestions which were great. For... More

We are very proud of our décor and the glass wall is always a "hit" in its own right. Our serving team is one of the best around and it makes me so proud... More

My husband and I recently celebrated his birthday at Gio, and it was a remarkable experience. As it was a special occasion, our server Teri recommended a 5 course chef's menu. Each of the five courses and the paired wines was exceptional. Just so much thought was put into everything. We'll definitely keep coming back!

Honestly, this was not our first choice as we didn't know much about the restaurant - but all the other choices were fully booked. Sort of reluctantly booked this place as we were a large party. WOW! At first blush I wasn't sure there was going to be something on the menu that appealed, but every person completely enjoyed everything... More

Gio was one of my very first finer dining experiences for a date night with a boyfriend several years ago. It still brings great memories of a fantastic waiter, and cucumber/cantaloupe infused water that I thought was just fantastic. While I was there they had sorbet in between meals to cleanse the palate, The foie gras was remarkable and delicious... More

Stayed at the Hotel for work and had breakfast at the restaurant in the lobby, Gio. There was a nice selection in the breakfast buffet but I opted for the Oatmeal and muesli. Good sized portion and was very tasty. Waitress was pleasant and efficient. I would definitely come back again, their dining menu sounded great.
