Ambience and service was fabulous! The food honestly could use some work. Salmon tasted off, overdone, dish overall was meh., missing a sauce or something. The halibut although quite tasty, was a little salty. Lamb chops were also a little over done. Oysters and desert were fabulous!

Started with oysters which were awesome
Husband’s steak was thin and over cooked
( he asked for medium rare)
My meal was cold and lacked any kind of lamb flavour ( cooked to order medium)
Overall a special night wasn’t so special
Thankfully we had a gift certificate to ease the pain

One of the best dinners out all year. I had the seafood risotto and the scallops were done perfectly. Lovely staff too. If I’m ever back in Halifax I will definitely go again. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

It was a disappointing experience. I was so excited to go here — boomed it for our last night when I knew they would have music. Made reservation days in advance. Arrived to be seated in a corner away from music and everything. Asked for a table in the main room - despite a number of tables being empty they told us they couldn’t accommodate and sat us in the bar next to the music - the music was lovely and very talented jazz musician but couldn’t hear each other. Menu is somewhat limited and just didn’t really want to pay $40 for an entree sitting in a bar. I will go back and hopefully next time will have a different experience - we ended up leaving and going to the Bicycle Thief which We had been to the night before and absolutely loved. I guess just got off on the wrong foot at Press Gang with their unwillingness to accommodate a table request that was more suitable for what we wanted at a time when it was not overly busy and didn’t seem like it should have been difficult to do at all.

Fantastic meal. We had the “Henry’s Feast” for 2. Lots of food and absolutely delicious. Excellent wine list (not an overwhelming number of wines but good choices at all price points. Chef came out and spoke to us after dinner and told us of the history of the building.

One of our favorites. Romantic ambience in a historical building. Food is high quality and seafood is fresh.
Service has always been great, though this time we were a bit disappointed. But I would give that another chance, since it might have been an off night.

The oysters were great. We had a scallop appetizer that had one cold scallop that shouldn’t have been there. The proteins from the entrees were very good. The vegetables with the mains were horrible. The potatoes were over cooked, leathery, and hard. The other vegetables, carrots and brussels, were underdone and way under seasoned. Drinks and service excellent.

The risotto was amazing! It lets you try a little bit of all the Nova Scotia seafood (two big shrimp, two big scallops, a piece of halibut, a generous amount of lobster meat), plus lots of vegetables and the rice itself. And the ambiance is pretty great. I'd highly recommend it!

Wonderful reception from hostess and we did not have reservations. Lucky to get a table on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is like stepping back to 1759 with brick and stone walls surrounding diners. Our table was in the remains of a fireplace and our chairs rested on the hearth. Authentic wood beams and flickering candlelight added to the ambience. Waiter was lovely and had great recommendations. One of us had a whole lobster and the other seafood in croute. We shared oysters for an appetizer and enjoyed a delightful banana/chocolate pastry with cinnamon ice cream. Truly a special evening.

Fabulous meal for our 30th anniversary. We had The Drill so the chef made a special 4 course meal for us. We were spoiled with complimentary sparkling wine to start. The 2 seafood appetizers were yummy and the wine recommendation by our server was perfect. Our main was beef tenderloin with lots of veggies - it was wonderful. We should have been too full for dessert but we ate it anyway! We have enjoyed a couple of meals at the Press Gang before but We are both so happy we chose this restaurant for our special celebration.

I had the coffee rubbed beef tenderloin with a jus that I could have drunk from a glass! It was magnificent. My tenderloin was cooked well done perfectly. Fingerling potatoes and carrots finished off dinner. A very full plate that I could not finish.
The building itself, the second oldest in Halifax, exudes history and ambiance. I do suggest not sitting in the bar area as I found it chilly (October). We were moved to another room without an issue.
My husband had the special comprising of a seafood melange on puff pastry with scallops. He loved it.

On vacation. Looked for fine dining restaurant and found online this restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere, good service excellent food. Being foodies we ordered 5 apps as well as entree. Chef Brian came to our table and introduced himself. My son in law who is a chef and has a fine dining restaurant of his own had a lively discussion re food and food prep. Brian also gave us the story behind the name PRESS GANG as well as the building. He made a special presentation of all his deserts. He created a silver tray of under the ocean and ships out of his deserts. It was not only beautiful to look at as well as delicious. The evening was wonderful. Once our travels were over the last night before leaving Halifax we ate there again with my having the most delicious whole lobster. We highly recommend the Press Gang for your dining pleasure.

We went to The Press Gang because of a friend’s recommendation (her “favourite fancy place” in Halifax). We had high expectations and we were not disappointed. They’ve built a wonderful, intimate décor in this old building, with excellent understated service and wonderful food to round out the experience. Our rating of the sounds level was because we were seated next to a table of loud-ish businessmen (oh, well, not enough to ruin the experience). We had seared scallops, beef carpaccio (served as a canape), salmon, and flourless chocolate cake – all courses were delightful. The added touch was a table visit from the chef, Brian. He was genuine in his interest in our experience and obviously very proud of the restaurant. Well done!
