We've been to Gio's many times for special occasions. The dishes are always fresh, creative and delicious! We've never been disappointed! The bar at Gio's is also excellent - for a treat we will have a cocktail at the bar before dinner and chat with Jordan, the knowledgeable and engaging bartender! After a couple of visits he now remembers us... More

Love the menu here. It's obvious a quality chef is working hard behind the scenes. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Halifax that has an appreciation for fine dining, beautiful presentation, and great service. Can't wait to come back.

The service is impeccable and the food was amazing. Although on the pricy side, it was well worth it for a nice lunch.

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.

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.
