The restaurant was vibrant but not too noisy for conversation. Our reservation prevented a longer wait for a table. Our group of three all ordered a different meal and all were equally impressed. The Chef came to our table for a chat which was nice. folks seated next to us had been to the restaurant several times and added their approval to many items on the menu. Parking was not an issue. Dessert was a generous piece of cheese cake that was shared by the three of us. We will definitely be back to try some of the other items on the menu. Oh yes, almost forgot, the washroom was very clean !
Always enjoy the food Interesting food well priced
Delicious cocktails, great service & lots of gluten free options. Food was amazing. Will definitely be returning
Chairs at high top table were very uncomfortable. Service was good but confusing, not sure how many people were serving us. Food presentation was a excellent and value was good. A bit too heavy on the cilantro for our liking.
Delicious food with great service and atmosphere! Would recommend to friends.
Always great food with terrific service at reasonable prices
Hello! Service was good just a tad confusing - we waited 20 mins for someone to see us then were bombarded with four different servers within the spam of 10 minutes. A reoccurring joke throughout the evening was we really weren't sure who we were tipping - none of the four servers introduced themselves. Both my date and I work as a team service restaurant and were still confused.
Food was amazing and fairly priced, however, we went in on the mystery extravaganza for 2 and didn't feel as though the fire-lit lime and floral arrangement warranted the price. Still a great drink!
The food is always fantastic. It's my go to restaurant and I've never had a bad meal!
Love this place and highly recommend it. Wonderful food and service.
Food was fantastic service was excellent it’s a little bit of a tight spot but it was very enjoyable..
Amazing combination of flavours! Interesting menu.
Fantastic as usual. Favorite place in the city highly recommended
Attentive service, out-of-this-world food from Brussels sprouts to bulgogi, this place is all you’d ever ask for in a casual dining restaurant
Love Ray, and his stylized cooking
Always a pleasure
Jillian prepares sublime cocktails, pair that with exceptional inspired fusion food. Perfecto
Excellent restaurant with great service. I go on a regular basis and am never disappointed. The menu is diverse and always makes for a difficult choice as the are so many great dishes.
Amazing food! I had their special - bulgogi with avocado, jalapeño, rice.
Yes. We often get togther with friends at Studio East. Food is always delicous and wait staff freindly and attentive
Outstanding service. Managed our large group beautifully! Thanks for a memorable evening
Have been to Studio East a couple times before. Love the ambience and diverse menu. Love the local sourced food and connection to the owners farm (not sure how they find the time!). Excellent cocktails. Not being consummate 'foodies', we felt the various tastes in our entrees (Thai Love Curry & Fish Curry Ramen) overwhelmed each other to the extent that the uniqueness of the meal was lost in its complexity. The battered fish in the ramen, while delicious, becomes soggy in the broth as it is a large portion that takes a while to eat. Appreciate the creativity & like a fine wine, one needs to learn how to appreciate the flavours as they emerge. We also chose Studio East this time as our out of town friends included 1 vegan & 1 non-seafood eater, so the menu works very well for that. I'd like to come back & try some other dishes, but it will be awhile while we 'digest' our experience.
It's a casual spot, though I would appreciate tables rather than high tables with stools.
Our favourite restaurant! Fabulous food and cocktails!
Best burger I ever had. Fast and friendly service.
Excellent food and great service, can’t wait to go again
My family visited Halifax on vacation and this was our favorite meal of the trip. Not only was the food delicious, but our waiter Alex really went the extra mile to make our experience memorable. Thank you for the Peggy's Cove recommendations, Alex!
Can’t believe we have not been there sooner. Will recommend and also will be back.
Food was service felt a little
We did enjoy our experience at Studio East and thought the food was solid, but not spectacular. We were a party of five and saw several different dishes, the standouts probably being the chicken skin appetizer and the the dumpling appetizer. The fish tacos were good and so were both ramen offerings, but I wouldn’t say any of them really stirred the soul. The service was very friendly and helpful which was the highlight of the meal. As far as the space itself, they have tables outside which would be great on a nice evening, but the tables inside were quite warm without any air conditioning. There were some other things on the menu that I’d like to try and the service was great, so I’d give it a recommendation.
Our first time eating there. The food was so flavourful and our server was fantastic ! Will definitely go back!!
Amazing food, love this place. Very casual and unfussy.
The food was good although I wish you had more vegetarian options.
The bit of nann bread was $7! That is way too expensive and we didn't get much bread.
Excellent all around
Not to be missed
Really great service
A must in Halifax
Looooooooove Studio East! Service and food are amazing. A little too loud and echo-y on the far side of the resto. I continue to bring friends and family there. Hard to get them to go back with me due to noise. Everyone always looooves the food
Great experience. The cocktails were fun and yummy . The staff friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. Highly recommend!
The food was delicious with bright flavor and beautiful presentation! Our server was sweet and attentive; our new favorite place!
Excellent place. Friendly staff. Superb food. I suggest you try their Caesar cocktail- likely the best in Hfx
While all the dishes ordered were excellent, the ramen bowls were outstanding - deep flavours.
Great casual atmosphere but rather dark inside and a tad noisy but after a while it wasn’t noticed. Some well placed lighting would provide added ambiance and light. Nonetheless, food and service was very good. It’s the kind of place I look for but is hard to find. Well done.
The server didn’t explain the dish at all, and then ignored us after someone else dropped off our food. As a server myself I was disappointed with the lack of caring from the server and the quality of the food
