Ate at Ryan Duffys in Halifax last night (Thursday March 14th) and had the best meal I have every had by far. Started out with a casesar salad (made table side might I add). Then I had an 8 oz filet cooked to absolute perfect with a side of home made garlic mashed potatoes and a side of fresh asparagus. Everything was done to perfection. The service was also amazing, they made our caesar salad table side, dressing and all and also cut the steak table side. They offered suggestions and were so polite. The thing I like most as that we did not feel rushed, they gave us a good amount of time with the menus, didnt send us our meals the second we were done of our apps and also offered dessert at the end. Which I might add was cheese cake in batter deep fried.... ohhh sooo yummyyy... cannot wait to return!

Just had dinner here with three friends. Very classy and comfortable atmosphere. Service was good at first but was lacking by the end of the meal. Vegetables were abundant but cold. Baked potato was massive but cold. Lobster in sauce with the Filet Neptune was cold. Meat was delicious although when requesting medium rare be prepared for it to be more rare than you might expect. Long maze to get to the washrooms which weren't very tidy. Can't see myself going back there again. I don't mind paying alot for a nice meal but this was disappointing.

I have not dined here at dinnertime, but have enjoyed both breakfast and lunch fare. The coffee is particularly good -- robust. Don't be put off by the hanging meat in the fridge when you walk in. This place is known for it's amazing steaks.

This was my favourite restaurant experience when I visited Halifax. It is pricey, but exquisite! The staff were outstanding, very well trained/educated in their industry. The food was incredible, I had the Seafood Fettuccine .... heaven! You wont be disappointed, chill by the fire while they ready your table, enjoy a cigar and brandy after dinner in the lounge! oo la la!
