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

If you like fine dining with some pleasant surprises (the chef sends over amuse bouches and surprise desserts), this is the place for you. Delicious, though a bit pricey.

Gio has an excellent lunch menu. If you are concerned about the pricing at dinner, I encourage you to try Gio for lunch ... The pricing is very reasonable, the menu changes with the seasons and the choices are diverse and well composed. I hesitate to recommend specific dishes as they do change fairly frequently, but I have never been... More

I think Gio is getting carried away with their rep. The $12 scallop appetizer as 2 scallops. Perfectly done with nice accompanying veggies, but come on, 2 scallops, and small ones at that. My meal was 1/2 a cornish hen, beautifully cooked and plentifully sized. But then the plate was filled with enough black eyed peas (which were excellent as... More

Last month I had the good fortune to be invited out to dinner by an old friend and colleague, and it was to Gio that we went. Simply put: The ambience was fine, the food was excellent and the service was superb. The seafood chowder was among the best I have ever had anywhere; tasty, rich, satisfying. But be warned:... More

We recently enjoyed a special night out with close friends and we were not disappointed! Amazing service and an amazing meal. We were very pleasantly surprised by the portion sizes, all of us left very satisfied. I always am raving about the Prince George hotel, they really always go one step above in all ways and Gio is no different.... More
