I ordered food that I did not receive, but was still expected to pay for it! The food I did receive was good, but the experience was so awful that I won't go back

Our party of four were the only diners on a Monday night, which was a little disquieting, but the food and service were excellent. The lamb meatball starter was very sophisticated. The kitchen ditched the blackening spices at my request and seared my tuna just right with a light touch. All impeccable, even if our foursome felt somewhat adrift.

My wife and I decided to try this place that seems to be flying under the radar. Tucked away just off Spring Garden Rd, the restaurant offers a cozy, intimate dining experience. The menu, while small, is varied, and offers pretty much one take on each kind of food (meat, chicken, seafood, pasta, vegetarian). Both my wife and I tried... More

After hearing several friends give me great reviews of this restaurant I finally decided to try it in mid-Feb. We went after Valentine's Day to miss the crowds although I am sure this intimate restaurant would have been excellent for Valentines Day - tables well spaced yet cozy and warm. The service here is excellent! Attentive but not over the... More

Have visited Moda several times it is always an enjoyable experience. Food service atmosphere is as good as it gets in Halifax. I would recommend giving it a try.

This is a small restaurant with a very nice atmosphere, tastefully appointed with original art works. Service was excellent and very professional. The menu has a number of nice selections; I had a shrimp and pasta dish that tasted excellent. The wine list is not huge but had a number of good selections. This restaurant is strongly recommended.

We had a lovely dinner at Moda. The decore is modern, in an older building, with these two elements well integrated. The food ranks with the best restaurants in Halifax, and there's a decent wine list. The pace of the meal was perfect, and, to top everything off, they lent us an umbrella when we were leaving (it had started... More
