Unlike cinematic love scenes, cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon to Halo Steak Seafood & Wine Bar. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of dinner and drinks, available Sunday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of lunch and drinks, available daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Halo Steak Seafood & Wine Bar appeals to seasoned foodies and casual diners alike with its dazzling array of sumptuous yet unpretentious eats from the pasture and sea. Drop in for lunch until 4 p.m. with an esteemed colleague or landlocked midshipman and sample hunger-hampering dishes, such as the bison burger, lean ground bison topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, and signature sauce ($13), or the Smokehouse chicken wrap, a savoury cylinder of barbecue chicken, mixed rice, and chipotle mayo in a warm tortilla ($12).
Dinner, meanwhile, melds land and sea like a fish galloping into the sunset. Savour the cedar-plank salmon fillet, garnished with a maple-barbecue glaze ($23) and washed down with a glass of white wine ($8+ by the glass). Heartier appetites may opt for the filet mignon au gratin, an 8-ounce filet wrapped with a bacon scarf and swaddled in warm folds of melted blue cheese ($36), then christened with a dry gin martini from the vast bar ($9). Much the way a can-can dance signals the end of most board meetings, a round of fresh, house-made desserts, such as the baked apple pie with granola and maple-walnut ice cream ($8), signals the end of dinner.
Despite its rich wood-panelled ceilings, stone fireplace, plush leather chairs, and elegant accents, Halo Steak Seafood & Wine Bar maintains a casual atmosphere. With its spacious yet cozy interior and two outdoor patios for warmer months, diners can enjoy a regal reprieve from a sassy-mouthed stove or grumbling dishwasher.

Succulent cuts of AAA Sterling Silver Alberta beef share the bill with bison, fresh salmon, and lobster at Halo Steak Seafood & Wine Bar's new Lake Fraser Dr location. Red and white wines come recommended by telegraph dispatched from the in-house sommelier's cork fort. After lunch, brunch, or dinner, diners satiate their sweet teeth with dessert made in-house by pastry chef Labrini Kostaras, as well as martinis and specialty coffees from the bar. Diners can feast in the dining room or choose the outdoor patio; the lounge serves its own menu of sandwiches and snacks to guests.
