Excellent wine list. Wonderful charcuterie boards and very knowledgable staff to guide you through to a great night. The venue is cool and has very cool, careful curated music that reinforces the entire vibe. Ok, yeah....we're regulars.

This is a great vine bar with with a nice vine selection. I went here twice during my Halifax visit. One evening there was live Jazz music. Great atmosphere as the place is not too big. Nice staff and definitely worth a visit.

Went for a late walk to find some eats. Other places' kitchens were closed...Obladee was still serving food. The charcuterie was pretty good. Had rabbit for the first time! The wine was very nice to ... a Syrah from Argentina.

A small spot that is very relaxing. It's not really a place to go for a meal, enjoyed stopping for a drink with a few small eats.

Went after dinner for red wine and cheese. the waiter asked what we liked and then got us a 3 wine flight and a small 3 cheese board. Great choices by the friendly waiter. A great way to end our evening.
