Most pleasant evening. Excellent wine choices and menu options at higher end prices. Beautiful Christmas decorations at the entrance to restaurant on the waterfront. A must if in Halifax.

It was the food and service for the price that let us down. The meat was incorrectly cooked and had to be re-fired so we ate at different times. The overall food quality didn't match the price of the meal. Our server was also quite cold. Disappointment.

Hard to get a 10Pm reservation. This place is happening! At first I thought the music was too loud, but once you try on the ambiance it works' the food was outstanding. And the location would n awesome in summer

This is a very well oiled machine of a restaurant. Great inviting room, well prepared staff, excellent and well priced wine list and the food throughout was consistently top drawer. The short rib Barolo was exquisite and colossal and made me happy. The duck flatbread app was good but seemed incongruous to the menu. Only complaint was the oversalted scallops... More

We came here because it was recommended to us. I have to say it was by far the best gnocchi I have every had! I'm not sure about the wine prices by the meal prices were very affordable!

I've been waiting for a long time for an opportunity to rate The Bicycle Thief. We so looked forward to an evening with friends to dine here, as we very much enjoyed its predecessor, Bish. Well, this place is nothing like Bish. Our friends booked a reservation two weeks in advance, expecting a nice table in a quiet atmosphere. What... More

I was here for a business dinner in the private dining area. The atmosphere and ambiance was very cozy and inviting.

All in all, a great experience at The Bicycle Thief. I... More
