The food is exciting and the menu very interesting. Some of the dishes are fantastic but a couple had overwhelming combinations that lost the plot a little with too many flavours. Also, one dish had an element that was a bit burnt.
The food was amazing and the bartender made me a personalized cocktail that was super yum, but our server was incredibly slow and forgetful (we had to ask for our bill three times).
We all had different dishes and shared some appetizers and all the food was fantastic! Good choice of drinks as well. We would all recommend this place as we really enjoyed our evening. Great service as well. Can’t wait to return!
This is such a great spot! Neighbourhood, come-as-you-are feel but a great energy and truly outstanding food. Get the Pad Thai Wings and the Chicken skins apples. The burger is the single most unique one you will ever eat. Really. And truffle fries...nothing more to say. No idea about deserts, we are always too full to get anything else!
The food was good as always but we made reservations and were seated by the garage door opening in the bar. There was water dripping all over the floor and the table got wet while eating. It made what would have been a great dinner not-so-good and wasn't what I would expect from Studio East, especially for what we paid for NYE.
Great casual Asian-inspired food. Charcuterie board is original and a must order. Service was very friendly albeit a little a slow to start.
The food was amazing! Staff was very friendly and helpful :) will be back!
Always a wonderful meal. Amazing attention to detail, really creative food. We'll keep coming back!
Fave restau! Always a lovely time and delicious food!
Great experience all around. Would highly recommend!
Wonderful food, so flavourful, thoroughly enjoyed every bite!
Cozy atmosphere with delicious food. I love being here to eat yummy spicy food on a cold winter night. The menu is original and eclectic. I tend to get the same main every time and it’s always prepared to perfection. It’s quiet enough to be a great date spot but busy enough to be fun with friends as well. Overall this is one of my top recommendations for places to eat in Halifax!
The food was very disappointing this time. I ordered chicken crisps and I couldn’t see or taste chicken. They were like battered potato chips. My husband was also disappointed with his burger, it’s usually outstanding. I hope it was an “off” night and not the new normal😕
Truly one of the best dining experiences we've had as a family. The food was exceptional, well-presented, and a tease for our taste buds. So many flavors that went together so pleasantly. Our waiter was kind, gentle, and attentive. The atmosphere was cozy. We can't wait to eat there again.
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
