The Ostrich Club
We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. It was the best meal we have ever experienced! The courses were all well thought out and delicious. So many flavours and layers to the food and wine. Thank you for a lovely evening.
This was the first time my mother and I had been to The Ostrich Club and it did not disappoint! The food was delicious and beautifully presented and our server Stefan was fabulous. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.
Best meal I've had from beginning to end in a long, long time. The roasted radish plate would have made my day on its own, but the haddock dish and a special swordfish plate continued to set the bar high. Though full, we tackled the chocolate tart and pretty much inhaled it. Service was spot on, helpful but not obtrusive. Would highly recommend this gem!
The martinis that our server made were very
good! I asked for Tanqueray gin but the Citadelle
was completely acceptable. Food was good and
nicely presented and your desserts are always
interesting. Missed not having the Strawberry Tart
with ginger crust though like last year.
Excellent food! Soooooo delicious!
It was a lovely just a great date night out on the patio, the food and service was just great. Just lovely!
Food was excellent and the service staff were knowledgeable and attentive. My only complaint would be the unusual, almost bizarre, music being played and, even more so, the very high volume it was played at. The restaurant was maybe a quarter full yet the music so loud it was difficult for our party of four to have a conversation; asked if it could be turned down to little effect. All that to say very unfortunate effect on the ambiance, but will reiterate the food was fantastic - weather permitting recommend sitting outside if you want to talk.
Service started out great- then our server has some friends sit behind us. She was giving them a lot of complimentary items and much better service . It was a bit of a black mark on our experience especially for the price of the meal.
Service and food was outstanding! Server was very knowledgeable. Looking forward to another visit.
The chef is imaginative and executes a wide spectrum of offerings. The best dishes are the ones where he marries 3-4 flavours to obtain remarkable effects. The somalier is the other half of the formula that makes this place a success. She serves and talks to the customers, but also offers really interesting wine selections. Our first time there we did the table d'hote with paired wines and that's when the full value of this collaboration became evident.
We each had the 5 course tasting menu. What a treat! Each serving was unique, tasty and just the correct size. Fresh local vegetables, meat and fish done with style and creativity. Our servers were informative and efficient but did not rush us. The Ostrich Club has become our favourite special occasion destination.
I like the ambience but unfortunately as soon as we sat and ordered wine we had numerous fruit flies around us for the rest of our visit. Food is imaginative and different. Will try again in the fall/winter.
Lovely meal and attentive service.
Great experience. The wine pairings were thoughtfully done by the excellent sommelier.
A great meal with well selected natural wines to match. The food was executed perfectly- ravioli so good I had a second helping. One of the best restaurants in Halifax I have ever dined at while in Nova Scotia.
Love the 5 course tasting menu. Absolutely delicious every course. The combinations such as the crab with custard was so different and great taste. We've never had duck cooked so perfectly. Is now our go-to place for special occasions. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. And not as expensive as a similar meal downtown.
We enjoyed the brunch menus choices and the fact that we could choose traditional fare or be a little more adventuresome. The meal was very good and the wait staff very friendly.
One of the best dinners I've had in a long time. Amazing flavors!
Would definitely recommend! Food, service, ambiance - great!
This is definitely one of the best brunch restaurants in Halifax. The food is delicious and the staff are knowledgeable about wine selections. This was my second time at the Ostrich Club - I couldn't stop thinking about the perfect classic French omelette I had the first time so I had to go back to have it again!! Some might say the portions are small but there are plenty of side dishes to add to your plate. I will be going back.
Great service and delicious food. Love the new interior updates. Fantastic oysters and wine list. This is my new regular fave place to go.
Excellent innovative food & attentive, friendly service. Really enjoyed new taste experiences with local freshly prepared ingredients. We think Oyster Club would benefit from lower volume & softer choice of piped music -maybe some locally produced instrumental? It was difficult to converse with tablemates and servers - eating & conversation go together & many people have hearing problems too! Otherwise it's perfect!
We were seated in a comfortable booth. Offered drinks right away. Brunch menu is small but very good.
Good food the service could have been a bit faster.
Great atmosphere, the service was awesome, food came out very quickly as well which was great. Even though the restaurant was busy for brunch, everything went over really well and enjoyed my first experience there. I will definitely be back. Our server Sam was very knowledgeable about the menu as well, and recommended a few good options for us to try. Can’t wait to come back again but it’ll be the try your dinner menu. Looking forward to it. Thanks for a good first experience 👌🏿👏🏿
We had an awesome time. First time in and cant wait to go back!
My only concern was with the wine. The chardonnay was lacking in body and finesse. The barbera was fine. The wine selection could be increased.
Never disappointed at The Ostrich Club. Music is usually too loud for me, but the staff graciously turn the music down. I highly recommend the Ostrich Club.
5 of us went for brunch and all were very happy. The classic French omelette is to die for!,
My third time at The Ostrich Club & never disappointed. The service is impeccable, ambiance is simple & relaxed and the food is always deliciously surprising (as the menu often changes). Love to introduce the club to friends & will return again.....and again.
wonderful dining experience! Food was delicious. Natural wine list!
Birthday dinner with friends
The food was creative and delicious and our server was upbeat and attentive. I had been to this spot many times as Epicurious Morsels so I was hoping the new owners would be as lovely and as inspired as Jim - they did not disappoint. We'll definitely be back again. :-)
Love the menu and always delicious
I was at The Ostrich Club twice this week - Thursday night and Sunday Brunch. BOth times it was great - very attentive wait staff and the food was amazing!
I love it!
Went for brunch. Limited menu. Mimosa was not chilled and bubbly. Service was just okay.
It was beautiful and bright in there. Service was great and everyone at the table loved their meals! I’ve been there for dinner and had to try brunch. It was great as expected. Definitely coming back more for those miso glazed oysters!!!
We love Little Oak and had been wanting to try the Ostrich Club. Alanna started us off with an amazing cava that was to die for and the food was incredible!!! Thanks so much.
Tasty chef tasting menu showed lots of promise. I would definitely return to taste the regular menu.
Mushroom toast is the best
