“Good, but some flaws.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

To start with, our server was wonderful. She was engaging and friendly. The food was very good but spotty. Two of us had a lamb stew and one of them the lamb was completely raw. They took it off the bill, but it took some of the air out of an otherwise fine evening.

“One of Halifax's best kept secrets!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

We've been to Gio's many times for special occasions. The dishes are always fresh, creative and delicious! We've never been disappointed!
The bar at Gio's is also excellent - for a treat we will have a cocktail at the bar before dinner and chat with Jordan, the knowledgeable and engaging bartender! After a couple of visits he now remembers us and chats to us like returning friends.
Let them know when you are booking if it is a special occasion. They like to know, and add some nice personal touches to your service.
Try it - you'll be glad you did!!

“High Quality Food & Presentation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Love the menu here. It's obvious a quality chef is working hard behind the scenes. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Halifax that has an appreciation for fine dining, beautiful presentation, and great service. Can't wait to come back.

“Amazing!”

The service is impeccable and the food was amazing. Although on the pricy side, it was well worth it for a nice lunch.

“Triple yum.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Outstanding service and excellent victuals enhanced by a reasonably priced but very good wine list. Three different nights proved GIO adept at tender steak, juicy lobster and a seafood stew to live for.
