We went to Gio recently for an anniversary celebration and the staff clearly went above and beyond to make this one of the best restaurant experiences we have ever had. When I made the reservation, I mentioned to Jared that it was our anniversary and he took care of the rest. We went to the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail,... More

We're staying at the Prince George Hotel, and dhose Gio because of its convenient location. To our surprise, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. One of the best meals that we've had in a long time. Highly recommended.

Gio offers a sophisticated yet casual environment. One can feel comfortable whether dressed casually or dressed for a night on the town. The service was attentive, warm and charming and added measurably to the evening. Our food was delicious. Gio offers unique preparations, a menu that intrigues one's imagination and that delights the palate. Portions are large so if you... More

Don't be daunted by needing to walk through the hotel lobby and restaurant! We were visiting for a long weekend and looking for an alternative to our usual downtown favorites. My partner (who is from the UK--and perhaps more objective) did a few searches and suggested Gio. I was skeptical about eating in a "hotel restaurant" but couldn't deny that... More

This restaurant is not afraid to serve bold, new flavors. The charcuterie and cheese plate for two was terrific, but complicated my life because the duck pastrami was so good that now I have to figure out how to make it myself. Everything was great. You can't go wrong.

We got into Halifax kind of late in the evening and were looking for a place to have dinner. Saw that this restaurant was only a few blocks from our hotel so we walked down and even though we were pushing closing time the staff welcomed us in and promptly sat us. The menu was varied and all three meals... More

There is not one thing I would say that I was let down with. Fantastic atmosphere and service. The food was incredible, had the veggie dish and calamari, both perfectly done. I would normally have pictures but I ate everything so quickly.

I have always sworn by trip advisor reviews, so when my husband and I were looking for a restaurant to eat at, after we eloped on the beach in Halifax, GIO was what we chose! And boy was it as the #1 restaurant dead on. Every single item was absolutely devine. We were given a complementary glass of champagne to... More
