I ordered delivery in these weird times, and the whole experience was very pleasant. My order was done online, and Jeff went out of his way to accommodate our family order. The order was delivered on time, in a beautifully decorated Christmas box and the...food was delicious. I can't wait for the restaurant to be opened again, but in the meantime, I would certainly recommend ordering delivery. Great work, Barrington Steakhouse team.More

Was there with my wife for her Birthday accompanied by my son and daughter in law. Outstanding service and very good steaks. My wife was disappointed that the fish selection was very small. Overall very pleased but a tad pricey compared with resturants of similar...quality, but the service may have made it worth the $$$More

This has become our go to steak place in Halifax. We don't go often but probably three times a year. We've only been upstairs but the downstairs lounge looks nice as well. Service is always impeccable and food is always excellent. One thing that we've...noticed lately (as recently as last evening) is that the server will describe the feature dishes for the evening but never gives the price. Some customers feel awkward asking for the price retroactively, and I'm sure to some that the price doesn't matter. For instance, I ordered the 16oz port ribeye last evening. The steak was very good, however I neglected to ask the price in advance, and only discovered that it was $70 upon receiving the bill (which becomes a $90 steak after tax and gratuity). I accept full responsibility because I didn't ask in advance, but there is that brief moment of sticker shock when seeing it on the bill. I don't mind paying $70 for a steak as long as I feel it was a good value. And in this case it was. I just feel that it would be a courtesy to the customer to offer the information in advance so that there are no surprises. That being said, we will be returning again in the not so distant future.More

Went here a few nights ago and sat downstairs in their lounge with a larger group. Server was on the ball with all our orders. Ended up with a surprise of live piano music. Very nice classy place in downtown Halifax.

Can't really say much about the full menu since we didn't have dinner here however we did pop by for oysters and they were delicious. Our server was super friendly and the ambiance at the restaurant was great.

Really enjoyed the oyster appetizers, and my steak was cooked perfectly. Good wine list. Overall it was a delicious meal that was well executed. Friendly staff. Only area to improve would be the attentiveness of wait staff to walk by or check in more often.
