I love this place! The staff are amazing to be ambiance is beautiful and so relaxing. The menu is small but very quaint, beautiful things to pick at and cooked to perfection. Such a great place to come and just sit at the bar with your friends relax and talk and laugh over a glass of wine. Rankin is an... More

My spouse and I had a lovely evening here - the service, the candle light, the decor, the delicious beaujolais all combined for a great date night. Next time we're in town we'll try the charcuterie. Highly recommend!

We decided to try this place while on vacation in Halifax. We arrived late on a weekday night, and chose a table near the front of the restaurant. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. We chose to try wines by the glass (2 reds and 2 whites), and the selection looked pretty good. We also ordered the build-a-board option from... More

Had my first date there with my now boyfriend. He had made a great choice! Its a wine bar with some food, very cool and relaxed vibe. I would recommend for a casual Friday or Saturday night with friends or loved ones!

Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, and provided great advice on wine and cheese selections. Despite being (apparently) the only server working at the time, the service was still prompt and he made us feel right at home. The wine was delicious, and the prices were reasonable. The environment was cozy and romantic. We will definitely be back!

I've been to Obladee a few times now- the wait staff are quite outstanding- personal, knowledgable, but not at all pushy or snooty. The wine selection is Wonderful- Loved the option of trying a flight of wine! Food options are small tastes to enhance your wine experience~ This isn't the place to go for a meal. You'll find savory, sweet,... More

A quick pre-dinner drink turned into a bit of a session, thanks to the friendly bar staff and interesting wine flights. While we sat at the bar, I noticed that the Obladee had some interesting seats in various nooks and crannies ... perfect for a quiet conversation (something I rate highly in a drinking establishment). It would be a great... More

I was travelling on my own and came across Obladee. Just as advertised, Obladee is a "small unpretentious wine bar with smart, dedicated staff." The staff (and owner) are very friendly and accommodating. I was introduced to Tidal Bay, a lovely blend from Nova Scotia. The food menu has a nice variety of mix and match charcuterie and cheese options.... More
