We had reservations on a Tuesday night. We were four in our group and all ordered different meals. The compact open kitchen is well organized and spotless . Jim takes pride in his creations as well as his sous chef (cannot recall her name). The housemade smoked salmon was the best I've ever had next to Willy Krauch's famous NS... More

A Jem in the North End of Halifax, NS! Dinner out with friends this evening did not disappoint. From the smoked salmon latkes, rack of lamb, haddock, salmon and the lamb shank. Chef Jim, the owner serves up some of the freshest ingredients to be found! Attentive service by our server Courtney, who was well informed with the menu and... More

I made a reservation for 3 people on a Friday evening in January. We arrived and our table was ready which was great, the decor is nice and it has a cozy setting. We reviewed the menus and each ordered. The restaurant was moderately busy. We then waited 40 minutes for our food. We watched people around us get their... More

This has been one of our favourite restaurants in Halifax for a few years. Its a bit sad I haven't wrote about it sooner. For Value vs food quality it is very hard to beat this establishment. Atmosphere is intimate and provides a nice dining experience in a smaller space. I have had the pleasure of trying numerous different appetizers... More

We ate dinner here with friends in the early New Year when several other restaurants we might have preferred were taking on a break after the holiday season. As it turned out, we couldn't have been happier. Business was slow and so we were able to park right outside and command the full attention of the server. She was excellent;... More

We have eaten here many times and have never had a disappointing experience. The menu is relatively small but covers a wide range. Jim Hanusiak, the chef/owner, has what we believe is one of the top restaurants in Halifax. No flash ... just quiet elegance, a small but wide range of menu options that invariably delivers! Presentation is elegant without... More

I am visiting Halifax. We drive down Young st and I see some lovely shops and restaurants. I come back to check it out. A warm space, lots of small tables, great service, and best of all wonderful food. I had the soup of the day, smoked salmon fish cakes and a spinach salad with scallops, smoked salmon and avocado....

Our favourite Halifax restaurant, hands down. Pricey, so special occasions only. Fantastic food, imaginatively prepared by Chef Jim. Superb service. Wonderful atmosphere. Love it.

Lovely small restaurant with an amazing menu, tough to choose from. Had the Gravad Lax and Lamb Shank, both were wonderful. Excellent service although I was there on a quiet Sunday night. Wish I lived in Halifax!
