Gio is one of the best restaurants in Halifax. Located in the Prince George Hotel, it is not your typical hotel eatery. The food is inventive, and delicious. Service is outstanding. Definitely a top-notch choice in a city with several excellent options for an upscale dining experience.

I ate there twice during a science meeting. I found the food to be rather imaginative even if the menu was a little small. The food was very well prepared and nicely presented.

It was an anniversary celebration so my wife and I selected one of the most accomplished restaurants in Halifax. We were not disappointed. From the greeting upon entry to the lovely decor and then the sophisticated food presentation, we were wowed. We had the Tasters menu and were served courses of scallops, Arctic char, lamb and an excellent charcuterie with grace and impeccable timing. A beautiful meal with lasted almost three hours. Keep up the high standards Gio.

Our family loves this restaurant. The gluten free choices are endless - even desserts! Fine dinning at it's best! Atmosphere is just right... not too fancy and certainly not too casual.

The server was amazing from her knowledge of the menu to her comfort level with us. The food itself was very good and despite a smaller menu it still had enough choices for most people. The menu prices are not cheap but the quality, presentation and portions are worth it.

The actual dining room is nice but I had one major complaint (which was the same complaint a fellow co-worker made last week when here) about the booth seats/fabric. You'd have to have silk pants on to slide or get into the booth, otherwise you have to do an up and down sort of thing to not get your pants stuck to the fabric. After the initial annoyance wore off everything else was great.

I would recommend to anyone staying at the hotel or looking for an upscale dining selection.
