Outstanding service and excellent victuals enhanced by a reasonably priced but very good wine list. Three different nights proved GIO adept at tender steak, juicy lobster and a seafood stew to live for.

Server was awesome! Food was superb! We enjoyed some appetizers and drinks. The chef had made a special treat for the day, so we got to try a sampling, when we told the server how fabulous it was.. she returned with more. Loved everything about this place!

After visiting all of Halifax's fine restaurants, it has become clear to me that Gio is in a class of its own. Among a burgeoning group of excellent restaurants in this small city it is still leading the pack. In a luxurious and comfortable atmosphere one can find the most consistently imaginative menu items in the city - bar and... More

Gio is one of the best restaurants in Halifax. Located in the Prince George Hotel, it is not your typical hotel eatery. The food is inventive, and delicious. Service is outstanding. Definitely a top-notch choice in a city with several excellent options for an upscale dining experience.

I ate there twice during a science meeting. I found the food to be rather imaginative even if the menu was a little small. The food was very well prepared and nicely presented.

It was an anniversary celebration so my wife and I selected one of the most accomplished restaurants in Halifax. We were not disappointed. From the greeting upon entry to the lovely decor and then the sophisticated food presentation, we were wowed. We had the Tasters menu and were served courses of scallops, Arctic char, lamb and an excellent charcuterie with... More

Our family loves this restaurant. The gluten free choices are endless - even desserts! Fine dinning at it's best! Atmosphere is just right... not too fancy and certainly not too casual.

The server was amazing from her knowledge of the menu to her comfort level with us. The food itself was very good and despite a smaller menu it still had enough choices for most people. The menu prices are not cheap but the quality, presentation and portions are worth it. The actual dining room is nice but I had one... More
