Hands down one of the best meals I have ever had. I am new to Halifax and have been trying out the many restaurants in the city, Gio by far is the best one in Halifax and one of the best I have been to in the world. The food and service were just great, our server was so knowledgeable... More

We stayed at The Prince George for my birthday and my husband had booked a table at Gio for evening meal. Having looked at the menu initially I wasn't sure, however each course I had met expectations and was tasty, very good value with a very good portion size. I had beet salad, the char and then the key lime... More

I was so excited to try Gio after reading so many favourable reviews, seeing so many beautiful images of their food online and of course, trusting that this is a Taste of Nova Scotia restaurant and therefore should be serving food of an outstanding quality. When we entered we were greeted with a chilly reception as the hostess demanded to... More

Food was excellent as was the staff, even had little treats thrown in at no extra cost! Tables are well spaced, giving a nice ambience.

It had been years since I had eaten at Gio and immediately I wondered why it had taken me so long! It was my favourite restaurant in Halifax and it is again! Besides the impeccable yet friendly service; delicious beautifully presented food; immaculate, contemporary decor, Gio is a stand out for me because it is not a loud restaurant. I... More

We went here for dinner on a Tuesday night and were pleasantly blown away by the quality of the food and service. We had the crab cakes, beef carpaccio, lobster and vegetable entrees, and dessert. Must fine dining restaurants overlook the vegetarian option, but this vegetarian dish was as spectacular as the lobster main. Would go back in a heartbeat!

The service was the best I've had in a long time and possible the best ever. Jordan was very knowledgeable about wines and all the menu items. He was engaging with all of us and extremely patient with my 95 yr old father. One guest has food allergies/intolerances and Jordan paid attention and was informative about all the ingredients. Portions... More

Gio was the standout dining event in a four-week trip through Eastern Canada. The food is inventive, delicious, visually attractive, and plentiful. We were in a party of four and thus got to order a reasonable range from the menu. Everyone enjoyed their starters and mains (including the lobster, the char, the vegetarian, and the bass). Unfortunately, we were too... More

To start with, our server was wonderful. She was engaging and friendly. The food was very good but spotty. Two of us had a lamb stew and one of them the lamb was completely raw. They took it off the bill, but it took some of the air out of an otherwise fine evening.
