The best meal we’ve had in a long time. Only problem was that my “anniversary” was actually in April. Couldn’t have had a better date. Thanks Duffy’s for another magical evening.

Waiter was personable, but forgetful. He failed to deliver ordered items and couldn't remember where food was to be delivered. Steaks were good, garlic mashed potatoes were tasteless.

It was fantastic as usual. The staff go out of their way to provide exceptional service. The chef is truly an artist and the dry aged meats are perfection.

Terrible service, from beginning to end. Entrees and apps over priced for the quality and taste. Terrible experience for everyone at our table.

Thank you for a wonderful dining experience! Warm, comfortable, relaxing atmosphere! Table overlooking the street with a view of the glowing fireplace was wonderful on a cold night! Corky our server and Bev (Val?) or host made us feel special! Thank you!

The prices were extremely high. The steak wasn’t very flavourful. Caesar salad was good and the deep fried cheesecake.

Of 9 orders of steak, 4 were either under cooked or over cooked. One steak order was medium well, came out blue, came out the second time rare and third time was very well done. No discount offered and it took three tries to get the bill correct.

For a high priced steak house it was very disappointing, no plans to return.

This restaurant was a big disappointment. Our server was scattered and forgetful despite the place being almost empty. The food is seriously overpriced for the quality. You can get way better food much cheaper at many other places in Halifax. To top it off, a mouse ran across the floor twice!!! Won’t be back. Halifax has amazing food, but this place needs to close its doors or find new management/chefs.

Made a reservation for lunch on Saturday, when we arrived we had to wait around before being seated as there was only one waitress on who seemed completely overwhelmed despite there being only two other tables with people at them. We were given a brunch menu, when I mentioned we were there for lunch the server was unsure if they could do that, and went to check with the kitchen. Due to speed of service (this whole thing took about 20 minutes) we decided to go elsewhere for our meal. We have been to Ryan Duffy's before and have enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the friendliness and knowledge of the staff. All these things were missing on our most recent visit.
