Description: The Garden (formally Garden Food Bar & Lounge) is centrally located in downtown Halifax, at the corner of Clyde and Queen. Our 4,000 sq ft beautiful restaurant/bar is illuminated by wall-to-wall windows, letting in an abundance of natural light, and our interiors feature a variety of exquisite, hand-crafted and imported materials from a variety of Iran and Turkey including turquoise-tiled walls and Persian artifacts, a modern, open kitchen, and a lovely array of seating options, including locally-built hardwood tables, chairs, and a playful set of swings as dining seats.

Beautiful restaurant in terms of decor and ambiance. Menu is appealing. Service was brutally slow. Beverages came and were almost finished when I finally went to ask if someone could take our order ( plus 20 min).
Had high expectations as it is really lovely inside. Plenty of staff based on number of patrons so don’t think that was the issue. Kitchen also seemed well staffed.
Hope they can improve on this as it is a cute spot.

Service was good but food was sub par. Had the mussels, no seasoning and bland. Salmon for main, overcooked and potato salads was under cooked and tasteless. Interior is nice. Over priced for quality.

Went here for brunch during the summer. I ordered a flat white & eggs benny. It was delicious and the place is so cute!

This place is a gem in the heart of downtown Halifax! The ambiance is cool, casual and unpretentious. The food is straightforward, and seems like they were planned and prepared with great care. They also have an ample bar for those who are inclined. Service is a standout here, and the staff try their best to please. We've been here about three times and can't wait to return. Still have to try the breakfast and brunch selections.
