My main complaint was your customer service was not great. Had to call on a server three times. The servers appeared to be run off their feet so I’m not blaming them. You definitely more staff to keep up with busy times. We all felt neglected. Took almost an hour just to be served our beverages. Had it not been for our reservation/Christmas dinner we would not have stayed.
Christie our server is always excellent. The food was really good. I had the seafood linguine, as per Christines recommendation and she did not steer me wrong.
Classy interior, great service, and delicious food. Cape Breton seafood chowder is highly recommended
The restaurant is one of my favourite places to eat. I dined in the restaurant three nights in a row and had something different to eat each night. Excellent service. Looking forward to eating in the restaurant some time in August of next year. I hope lobster bisque is still on the menu!
All members of our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, cuisine and excellent service. I had the seafood chowder followed by the pan seared scallops. Others in our party enjoyed their selection.
Another fantastic meal. My suggestion is to get a cup of the seafood chowder if you plan on having it as a starter. It’s plenty and a bowl is a meal to itself !
Pizza is delicious and our server was very friendly and attentive.
Cafe Chianti is a restaurant in Halifax that has been around for decades. In its new location on Barrington St, it has maintained its excellent level of service and consistently delicious food. While it is prices are not low, you still feel you get value for your money, which is hard for any restaurant to achieve. We have dined all over the world, in every type of restaurant, at many different price levels, and we still feel Cafe Chianti surpasses many of these experiences. Its staff is well trained, and very professional. We will continue to dine there when we want a special experience, and a wonderful meal. Bravo to this iconic Halifax restaurant for maintaining excellence when many of its competitors are simply maintaining only a mediocre level of service and food, and are rarely consistent from visit to visit.
Just as I remembered! Great food, service and atmosphere. Our waiter was fun and engaging but wasn't in your face. Lovely meal with our Scottish cousins. Thank you.
Our Favorite restaurant in Halifax ! The food is wonderful. Relaxing atmosphere. So happy here.
Always a great experience at this restaurant. The food and service are top notch.
Unusually crowded due to a wine event close by, the food was excellent, the staff was fabulous and Christine is a darling.
It was a very business time in the restaurant, and we experienced a lot of waiting throughout the visit, starting with not being greeted at the door for almost 10 minutes. We've been here several times, and that was a first. Although we had a lot of waiting, 2 other experienced servers assisted our server in trying to help her along. The staff are extremely attentive and very personable. This one off-night won't deter us. The food was the best we'd had yet, and can't wait to go back again soon.
Top notch italian food with very good service!
The food, service and ambiance were perfect. We are stuffed and happy!
Very quiet atmosphere with great service and exceptional food
Another amazing meal at a favorite spot!
Service and food was incredible. A must visit in Halifax
The perfect spot to bring our out of town guests. We were able to converse without shouting which is an issue at other restaurants in the city, most are very noisy. The food was delicious and the service outstanding.
Went to Cafe Chianti to celebrate my three girlfriends birthdays and the food was Amazing, so fresh and flavourable!
The waitress was fantastic, very accommodating for one of my girlfriends who has severe food allergies!
I highly recommend this restaurant, too notch service, the best food and so affordable for fine dining!
On entrance we were greeted by a very professional staff and a nice ambiance. It was the evening so all of the tables were full and as a result of that it was quite loud. The food was delicious and we'll prepared, with the portions being more than enough to fill you.
Love this Restaurant - always one of our favorites
We always enjoy our visits to Cafe Chianti. Food and service were excellent. Although I especially miss the salad that has been removed from the menu. My only other complaint would be that it is hard to have a conversation due to the noise level. Once the restaurant starts getting busier I think that the music causes everyone to talk louder and then the music cannot be heard anyhow. Thank You
I hadn't been back since the menu had been revamped in the last few months and the food is just phenomenal!
The service was incredible, the atmosphere was nice and the food was good but for a $200 bill, I didn’t walk out of Cafe Chanti raving about the food. It was good but, unfortunately, it wasn’t great!
Our first visit. Went specifically looking for seafood. We were not disappointed. We split the roasted beet and peppered goat cheese salad. Delicious. My wife had the pan seared scallops and I had the blackened haddock. Both were cooked to perfection. We'll be back!
Waitress Taylor was exceptional. On arrival when we sat down there was dried hardened food on our glass candle holder which was promptly taken care of. Not a great start. The music was off and on. When it was on the ambiance was fine. Ceiling light over our table was bright unlike the other tables. Food and service were great. Ambiance needs some work.
The food was exceptional, and our waitress was personable and attentive! It was a fantastic experience and a great way to celebrate my partner's birthday! Looking forward to eating here again the next time we come to the city!
Great place, best mussels we’ve ever had
Hard to decide whether the food or the service was better - both were amazing! We enjoyed every bite and the server was attentive and helpful. We will be back!
Very professional but laid back service. Nice amenities. Superb pizza.
Emily was an awesome server. Friendly, knowledgeable and personable.
Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Fantastic as usual.
Loved the service and ambience. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The risotto balls and filo wrapped brie are to die for. The steak and the gnocchi was delicious! We keep going back again and again!
overall good. loud to speak to our table. A bit slow getting a drink, but quickly got better.
I had stomach upset all night and next day, everyone else was fine. I had the steak with a sauce.
Took my wide for her birthday and the service and food was incredible. Proposed to my wife at this restaurant, the old location, and i would not hesitate to recommend this fine eatery to anyone, for any occasion. Just outstanding.
Everything about the meal and service were very good. My only complaint is the Calamari. We asked for a seafood sauce intending to dip the calamari in the sauce. We were advised there was no seafood sauce but there was a tomato sauce so we said that was fine. The calamari arrived saturated/tossed with the tomato sauce which made the fried coating soggy. The calamari was tasty but the texture was not appealing at all. In hindsight we should have returned it and asked for the sauce on the side. We did not know to do this upfront because coming from Ottawa, the calamari is always served with the sauce on the side. We like our calamari breaded and fried crispy - putting the sauce all over it makes the coating wet and soggy. Otherwise, great meal.
The food and the servers were fantastic. It was a great way to spend my Anniversary with my awesomeing husband. Can't wait to go again
The food, setting and service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone . It’s a quiet, welcoming and romantic place for a quiet meal.
The calamari was soggy and dissatisfying. The rib eye steaks were great. Piano playing was a bit too loud for ambient music
Serving staff were very attentive, the food delicious and served in very generous portions.
