    Food was absolutely exquisite. I am tough on reviews and their duck confit is the best I’ve ever had. Great atmosphere. The only thing I’d comment on Is that the service was so fast! Which is good in a way but we felt like we didn’t spend too much time there.

    Dinner reservation for two on the outside patio. Our server was knowledgeable and well mannered. We both ordered the French onion soup which was delicious and very filling. We also ordered the main steak tartare but unfortunately they were out so we ordered oysters and foie gras instead. Also very good! The noise level was very high inside but outside was very pleasant on a nice evening. Bathrooms are a trek to get to and shared.

    I have regular brunch dates with my nephew who is going to university here. The food was fantastic, we sat out on the patio and it was lovely. The gentleman who was serving us was fast and efficient. He made sure to give us lots of opportunity for questions. We were seated very quickly when we arrived and given the choice to sit outside or inside. Our food arrived quickly and everyone loved their meal. We had the ratatouille, the Lunette breakfast and the Chicken baguette dip sandwich. All menu items were delicious. We will definitely be back!

    Menu was limited but what we had was very good. A little pricey but the wait service was great especially Yasmine. Totally made the evening a success. Halifax waterfront has really grown and restaurants like this make it an awesome destination. Nice addition the Halifax scene!

    Cafe Lunette is our favourite place to eat in the city (with the two other Freehand Hospitality restaurants Bar Sofia and Drift being close seconds). The service is always outstanding and the food even better. We often bring guests who are visiting from out of province and they love it just as much. Many people complaining that it’s loud - I personally love the energy; people clearly having a wonderful time eating great food and drinking a lovely selection of wine and cocktails.

    Love the atmosphere Appetizer (baked Camembert) was delish My husband said that was his favorite burger ever. Ceasar salad was ok - lettuce not crisp enough kind of wilty. Severs were awesome aside from our main server - she was just ok.
