From The Butlers…

My husband and I had a reception that went better than we could have ever dreamed. This is mostly because of the hardworking efforts of the staff at the Delta hotel. When there’s so many things to remember to do for a wedding and reception, it means so much to have such wonderful people like Tina, Thomas, Mike and Ernie taking care of so many things. On our wedding day, we were truly never worried about how the reception would go because of the faith we had in the people looking after it. It all started with an AMAZING tasting at the hotel which gave us a perfect idea about the quality of food we were going to have. I wouldn’t even call it a tasting because we were served such large and delicious portions. The food was worth every penny. We couldn’t have been happier with it. We still have guests who attended our wedding come up to us months after and compliment us on how beautiful the venue was and how the food was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding reception. We would have to agree! I didn’t even have to lift a finger, Thomas made sure I was served everything I wanted, it felt wonderful to be treated like that. It was those extra details that made this venue above and beyond. There was always someone walking around, making sure they were available if anyone needed anything. Our bridal party stayed later than we were suppose to and Mike never said a word. He was so organized and terrific. Tina was the same. She made sure we got exactly what we wanted and we got just that and more. Every time I had a question, Tina would respond to me so quickly and it made the planning go so smoothly. Her experience really shows. Ernie treated us so great also. We had the time of our lives and would recommend this venue a thousand times over. The view was amazing and the staff was the same!

Thanks for everything again! You guys were so wonderful!

The Harbour City Bar & Grill at the Delta Halifax, which has a distinct focus on local products and cuisine, is now offering traditional Nova Scotia Lobster Suppers from now until Labour Day Weekend.

For only $25, restaurant goers can enjoy a 1 1/4 lb. lobster, corn on the cob, coleslaw and a fresh roll or enhance to a four-course meal by adding Acadian seafood chowder, Garrison steamed mussels and berry shortcake for an extra $14.

For those who like wine with their lobster, there will be no corkage fee for those who bring in a bottle of Nova Scotia wine to enjoy with supper. Plus every time one dines at the restaurant they will be given a ballot to enter the “Win 20lbs of FRESH, DELICIOUS Lobster” contest and they will receive two-hour complimentary parking at Scotia Square.

The Delta Halifax is also pleased to welcome a new addition to their culinary team, executive chef, Andy Camm.

Prior to joining Delta Halifax, Camm was the executive sous chef for Delta Fredericton and was the lead chef for the Fredericton Convention Centre in New Brunswick, creating memorable menus for Theatre New Brunswick, the Province of New Brunswick and the City of Fredericton as well as large conferences and events from around the country.

“The true taste of great food is to let the product speak for itself,” said Camm. “Pair it with something that compliments the great flavour of the dish. Local ingredients, coupled with local wines speak volumes about Nova Scotia’s bounty. We come from a rich and diverse community with a great melting pot of cultures that can be fused together to create great tastes and dining experiences.”

Centrally located downtown, the Harbour City Bar & Grill and its culinary team consistently push creative boundaries while maintaining a commitment to seeking out local farmers, fishers and other producers. With one of Halifax’s largest selections of local craft beers, Nova Scotia wines and spirits, diners can truly indulge in a unique dining experience, paired to perfection.
