Myself and 7 other family members went for dinner last night and I have to say I was a bit worried as I am a picky eater and tend to stick to the big chain places as I will know the menu. There was a wide variety of items on this menu so we all had something different and everyone... More

I cannot comment on the food as we left before that decision could be made. We arrived and were greeted in a lacklustre manner by a seemingly tired waitress. She showed us to a bad table and we asked for a slightly better one. We were seated by the window. After about 5 minutes the menus arrived and we chose... More

Good Day TaysTea, I am sorry to hear if you were made to feel that way before you even had a chance to try our food. It's a shame because it is well worth it. We definitely would never intend to make our customers feel that way so I do apologize again. Sometimes due to the nature of the restaurant... More

Very fine menu choices which proved to be very well presented and devoured. Service was classy without being over the top. A bit pricey but worth it. parking can be difficult.

Hey EdmontonSailor, Thanks for your review! Parking, parking, parking!! A dilemma for sure. I WISH I had more spaces in the back for our customers to easily access, especially in the winter time, however, it is Whyte Avenue and I am limited only to what I have. I am the owner and EVEN I have a hard time finding a... More

My husband and I like to visit a couple of times a year . The food is exceptional. The portions are generous and the tomato cocktail is absolutely delicious . The service is impeccable . About the only negative thing I can say is that it can be rather noisy.

Synchrored thank you very much for your feedback :) Yes, I am aware that sometimes the restaurant does get a bit boisterous. It's actually something I like to hear/see simply because its nice that people are engaging in pleasant conversation while enjoying everything the restaurant has to offer. There are some lunch times that the restaurant atmosphere is more tranquil... More

Our last visit was a couple weeks ago to celebrate a belated birthday. The food is awesome, the server was spectacular and the Dill Pickle soup is to die for.

Hi Richard S. Thank you so much for writing a review. I appreciate hearing all types of feedback in order to know where our customers stand with certain items we serve. It seems as though the Steak Tatar can be an item of controversy amongst tatar lovers as some people absolutely love the seasoning and others find it not salty/too... More

I love the Continental Treat. My favorite dishes are the goulash or the beef stroganoff, but you can't go wrong with any menu item. Start with a cup of the pickle soup- it might sound weird, but it is delicious! You might want to share an entree if you are starting with soup, as the dessert menu is very tempting.... More

So we went to spend a cold fall afternoon inside instead of our usual outdoor patios that we have been enjoying all summer. We were seated under a fan that couldn't be turned off so we had to move. I had to wear my coat throughout my meal and never really warmed up but it didn't deter us from enjoying... More
