Excellent service and amazing food made for a great dining experience. We'll be back!
Wonderful meal. As usual.
This being my second time dining here , it is just a lovely place to eat and enjoy a conversation . Our experience was very good beginning with our waiter..? Steven? He was great in explaining some items and recommending some choices. He said nothing would disappoint us and all 5 of us enjoyed our choices. They food was absolutely delicious!
One of our people had to leave as a family situation arose at home he had to attend to. Steven was so relaxed with it and asked what he should do regarding the order already been placed. Very accommodating and gave no attitude at the situation. When our person arrived back again Steven wanted to know what he could do ! Re ordered his appetizer. The entree was already boxed and we all enjoyed dessert.
We asked about an app we had on our previous visit 3 years ago , the stuffed dates. He checked with the chef to confirm they are on the new menu coming out Tues. we are planning another visit for just those !
One thing we truly enjoyed was our ability to have a conversation with our meal without yelling and straining to hear.
A great evening out with family travelling to see us .
Another amazing meal. Portions too large but very tasty!!!
I definitely would not recommend based on this visit, however, I will based on past visits. The main course was not great, service was not great, took forever for the bill, requested it twice, and then had to seek out someone to pay. Needed something, however, staff never came back around until we were almost done eating. When we were leaving, we struggled to find a coat, a worker was standing near, and never offered to help locate it. This location is expensive, and we were there for a special occasion. It was a loss... and the person I brought stated she will never be back
Great upscale restaurant with a sophisticated atmosphere. Food was phenomenal and service was friendly and quick. Definitely recommended!
I would eat here every weekend if u could. Never a bad meal and great service.
Food and atmosphere are fantastic! Tanya and staff went above and beyond when a blackout hit right after appetizers. Candlelight dinner it was! Thank you again!
One of my most favourite places anywhere. Including Europe. Friendly. Quiet. The food is always perfect.
Excellent atmosphere, excellent food and excellent service. Thanks
I was so disappointed in this restaurant. I specified that I was coming from montreal to celebrate my mother 70 birthday and 60 year of arrival to Canada from pier 21. Can you imagine that I was waiting for some kind of candle to wish her a happy birthday since it was on the day of her birthday and NOTHING. I was so disappointed. I had canceled another reservation to eat here and I regretted it!! The ambiance was horrible. The food was good not a five star good but ok.
Next time be more considerate and read your booking notes!!!!
We had an amazing experience. Even though this is a fine dining restaurant we took our kids at 5pm for an early dinner. Tanya the owner and the wait staff were great with the kids. Beyond the service we had an amazing meal.
Spectacular evening meal. Thanks to Tanya and Kelly and all others at this landmark Halifax restaurant.
de Maurizio is an elegant, sophisticated restaurant. The staff is engaging and attentive, without smothering. I had oysters as an app, which were small and a little underwhelming. Veal aragosta for entrée, delicious and ample. Nice pinot grigio by the glass, from a small sample. My wife had shortribs, which were too large for her to finish. All in all, a delightful and satisfying evening.
We always enjoy our evenings at your restaurant. The service and food are excellent.
The best restaurant in Halifax. Always consistent. A good sign is when the wait staff remains the same.
3rd time this year. Service outstanding. Food even better. Fois gras plate amazing tastes. Simple dish like linguine with clams soo good.
This was my third or fourth visit. This is the first time I had any complaint. My husband and I both ordered the fillet mignon and both of our steaks were very tough. Hard to cut with a steak knife and an unusual shape. I was unable to finish mine. When we told our server, and she said that she would bring the issue up with the chef. We then received our bill and nothing more was mentioned to try to satisfy us. It was quite a let down from our previous visits and we will probably not return.
A friendly warm atmosphere. All of the staff make you feel welcomed and appreciated. They are attentive to your needs without being bothersome. Food was superb with excellent wine selections.
Our entrees took over 1.5 hours to be served and when served, the cook forgot the chicken in the « chicken fettuccine » dish...
This is still my favourite restaurant in Halifax. The food and service never disappoints!
Great food, wonderful service and perfect atmosphere for family and friends. Everyone has a beautiful time.
da Maurizio's decor was elegant yet the noise level was higher than expected for such a nice restaurant. The food was good yet lacked imagination. The tomato sauce was the same on both my husband and my entrees and other choices would have been appreciated.
The wine, the Black Stallion cabernet from Napa Valley, was excellent as was the cheesecake we shared for dessert. Service was attentive at first, yet became slow after our entrees were delivered and we had to wait longer than expected to have our entree leftovers wrapped and to pay our bill. It was a decent experience, but not sure we'd ever return.
Wanted some good Italian cooking. But it was not up to their standards. La Frasca has better food. Had the lobster ravioli, and it was just not great. Disappointing as this use to be a great restaurant. It will be a long time before I consider going back. service was great.
Delicious Italian food. Best veal I’ve had in years.
Amazing food, service, and ambiance. First time here and will definitely be back the next time we’re in Halifax!!
Fabulous meal from the yellowfin tuna app to the dessert. Our server Kelly was very attentive and helped pick out a great wine to pair with our meal.
Best meal we have had in a long time!
Birthday dinner. Great service. Good food. Great conversation and a nice ambiance
For the food. We had at least 5 issues with their attention to detail. Added together they made for a disappointing experience in a restaurant we all loved. So it’s a yes for the food and a no for the service.
da Maurizio is well-known as the "go to" restaurant in Halifax. There is a reasons for that. Whether a casual drop-in for a quick snack off of the bar menu or a full on important dinner for close relatives, friends or business colleagues, da Maurizio NEVER EVER fails to deliver. The food is wonderful. Lots of choice and tastes for every preference. The service, especially by Kelly and Breah is always exceptional: crisp and personable. The ambiance is always first rate: clean, elegant, roomy and acceptably quiet (so that conversations are actually possible).
We love this place. Every visit satisfies.
i AM A RETIRED NAVAL OFFICER, AND MY COXN AND MYSELF WERE CELEBRATING THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COMMISSIONING OF OUR SHIP WITH DINNER AT DA MAURIZIO. WE STARTED WITH A GLENFIDICH EACH AND WERE GIVEN PLENTY OF TIME TO ENJOY IT AND ENJOY THE STORIES WE TOLD EACH OTHER ABOUT OUR EXPERIENCE 25 YRS AGO. NEXT, WE SHARED A PLATE OF CALAMARI WHICH WAS THE BEST WE HAD EVER EATEN. FOR MAINS, WE HAD VEAL SCALOPPINI AND SEAFOOD PASTA, NOT EVEN ON THE MENU BUT THEY MADE IT FOR ME. OUR SERVER BRIANA WAS MAGNIFFICENT. AN OUTSTANDING DINING EXPERIENCE ALL ROUND.
Outstanding food and service with a great atmosphere
Very nice that you have a choice of being in a bigger noisier crowd or in a more private setting
The food was great, prices were reasonable. The service was atrocious. What should have been a celebratory meal turned out to be cut short as the server seemed intent on ignoring us. Once the server finally came to our table we asked to order drinks and appetizers, the server decided that she only wanted to take our drink order and cut us off and stormed off mid sentence while ordering the appetizers. Our bill was brought over without a bill fold and our server came over with the credit card machine and didn’t speak until saying “have a good evening” once payment was made. We were planning on having 4-5 drinks and dessert, but didn’t bother as we weren’t asked once if we wanted refills on our drink. We will travel to Dartmouth and go to the vines instead next time. We ended up going to Middle Spoon instead and had a wonderful experience. This was our first time here, and we were extremely excited, and then disappointed. Everything turns into a good story, we will make sure to share this story generously.
Da Maurizio continues to be the 'go-to' place in Halifax for excellent food and service in a classic interior.
We enjoyed an excellent dinner. Everything was truly very well done.
Excellent as usual
From being greeted at the door with "Happy Anniversary," to the last lick of the dessert spoon, this was a stellar dining experience. The ambiance was lovely, the waitstaff (Sean and Sarah) were delightful, and the food was exquisite. Sean's insights on the pairings of wine and dishes were spot on. The appetizer we shared, Melanzane Alla San Daniele, grilled eggplant, prosciutto, and bocconcini baked in a lovely sauce was fabulous. We especially loved the Ravioli Aragosta - hand made ravioli stuffed with lobster in a heavenly sauce. The pacing and attentiveness of the service made for a very luxurious experience. Highly recommend!
We went to Da Maurizio on the recommendation of a friend, and were delighted by the décor, the flavours and presentation of the food... and the tiramisu is easily the best I've had!
