Atmosphere: noisy. Service: not particularly good. Food: okay, but only just. Prices: a little high for what you get. If you like feeling taken for granted, this is the place!More

I am sorry to read that u didn't enjoy your visit. Since we have changed locations business has been more brisk. Additional people do tend to provide a little more background noise, most of our clientele like the energy that this provides to the room....More

We were seated at a pew style bench and small club style chairs and round tables. More for a lounge than a restaurant. But my pew was surprisingly comfortable. It is decorated as if it is a older style home, with a fireplace and decorations...More

A very night evening out at this restaurant, with wonderful service and delicious food. It was a little crowded upstairs but nevertheless the food and desert is amazing. I recommend the raspberry desert.

For over 20 years, Halifax's place for casual dining in a cozy, intimate atmosphere has been The Fireside, just off the shopping district of Spring Garden Road. Well known for its Martini Mondays, the Fireside is a place to gather with friends to enjoy a cocktail, munch on a variety of tasty appetizers or sit down to a full meal in comfortable surroundings. At The Fireside, the food is delicious, the drinks are imaginative and the service is impeccable. You'll find the prices are reasonable, the choices are plentiful and you and your guests will never feel hurried. Out new location is bright and inviting featuring local art and mid-century modern décor. This is Halifax's home of modern comfort food!
