Two years ago after finally moving in to our first house, my husband and I went out to celebrate with our friends Mike and Jen at Redwood Grill. Our real estate agent highly recommended it as a local gem of a restaurant in the Clayton Park area. It is a neighbourhood favourite nestled in at the Future Inns Halifax Hotel.
Back then I ordered the seafood crepes ($16.99) to celebrate and I have thought about them ever since. This weekend we returned to the restaurant and I could not but help order the seafood crepes once again. They are still absolutely delicious. The seafood was perfectly cooked, there was enough sauce to satisfy my saucy cravings and the crepes themselves were soft and divine. My Caesar salad, however, was nothing to write home about which is a shame, I love Caesar salad.
My husband and I shared a slice of the dessert special: chocolate hazelnut cheesecake. He adored it, loved every bite. I thought it was OK, a little dry for my taste which was fine by him, he got to eat the majority of the cheesecake.
The service was great, the wait time for the food was reasonable and in general everyone did enjoy the food. My only complaint is they overcooked my husband’s steak. He ordered medium well and it was very overcooked. He said it was still delicious though which saved the evening.
You can tell summer is coming. When we arrived we sat by the windows and it was still light outside. As we left it was a dark and freezing night, too cold to chat for long outside the restaurant. I hope the weather starts to warm up so we can really appreciate going out to eat and appreciate foodie life in the Halifax area. So many places to discover once the winter chill is finally gone.
I still love hearing about your restaurant experiences! I may have to start reading restaurant reviews online. Now that I’m looking at restaurants from this side of the industry I really want to know what people think.
Love all the pictures by the way. Another thing we’re taught to look at in my classes is how the restaurant is set up and what the place settings look like.
It’s all probably stuff most people don’t think or care about when they go out to eat. It really affects the feel of a place though. I wish I had the money to go out to eat more often just so I could check out different places.
Anyway, after that long ramble… I’m glad you and your husband enjoyed your food (for the most part). I hope the weather gets nice and stays nice!
